Vernal Equinox

BLOG: Hello Spring

Spring officially arrived at 1:14 a.m. Today is called the Vernal Equinox. That is when the Earth is balanced on its axis so that the poles are equidistant from the sun, giving both sides of the globe equal sunlight. This also marks the flip to fall in the southern hemisphere.
