Spring has sprung

So I know today was a busy one, especially if you were up around Merrion Sq, Dublin, but did you notice we were in the middle of the Vernal equinox?  The March equinox signals the beginning of spring and it marks that special moment when the sun crosses the celestial equator going from south to north.  Our sunrises will be noticably earlier now, and nightfall will come later. Plants are sprouting and for the most part we, in the Northern Hemisphere, will look forward to the warmer days of spring. Meanwhile, south of the equator, autumn begins. For more information on the equinox, solitices and the like, check out earthsky.org.
