[It is also called the Vernal Equinox — that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]
I also share with you “Spring“. In this case the ‘2021 Spring Festival Gala’ from China.
Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the 2021 Spring Equinox.
Notice that it is NOT EXACTLY 12 hours of sunlight on the Equinox. That is mainly because we are so good at measuring time. It has to do with the so called precession of the Earth’s axis. Our rotation WOBBLES like a spinning top.
There is NO doubt at all, at all, Nature was delighted that 16-days after it was apparent the GSA has finally recognized Joe Biden as President Elect. This is a great day. It was quite the sunset to cap it. Thank you, ALL.

I have been a HUGE fan of ‘timeanddate‘ for years — as long as I can remember. I rely on them extensively. They, like Wikipedia, is one of my key ‘goto’ resources. I endorse them whenever I can because they do such a great job.
Yesterday, when I was looking for sunrise/sunset times for the 2020 Summer Solstice I happen to see this NEW ‘Night Sky’ feature — supposedly still in beta. I gave it a quick spin. I didn’t have much time. Ditto again, just now. Again gave it a very quick spin. Looks GREAT. I know that they will NOT disappoint. A very competent & thorough outfit. I am thrilled. I will happily go to them for my night sky. I am excited. Thank YOU, ‘timeanddate’. Keep up the good work.
