Saturday, March 20th marked this years’ spring equinox – the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

After this date, the Northern Hemisphere begins to be tilted more toward the sun, resulting in increasing daylight hours and warming temperatures.  The amount of daylight each day will continue to increase until the summer solstice in June, in which the longest period of daylight occurs.

The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night”—aequus (equal) and nox (night).  (How many Potter fans just looked up at the lights?)

On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world.
