Happy Spring Equinox 2020.

[It is also called the Vernal Equinox
— that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]

I also share with you “Spring“.

Please enjoy.


Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the
2020 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.

From, of course (where else), ‘timeanddate.com‘.

Yes, we are USED to the Spring Equinox being on March 20 (or 21).

This is the earliest it has been in the US in 124 years.

The key here, however, is ‘US’. It is still March 20 in Greenwich — and to us astronomers that is good enough.

Rather convoluted explanation as to why it is this early. If you really want to know, here is a link.

But note, it will again be March 19 — in the US — in 4-years. Yes, that it is also a LEAP YEAR does have a bearing.


As is my custom let me also please share some
catching ‘Allegories of Spring’.

90 MPH, Josh Spaulding, Local Celebrity News Editor, Now Falls Asleep At The Wheel.

by Anura Guruge


He is a local celebrity.

So, he is ABOVE THE LAW.

I am going to get into trouble just for pointing this out.

But, I have KIDS that share the same roads that Mr. Joshua Spaulding drives! Yes, that scares me.

That is ALL I am going to say.

I will let Mr. Joshua Spaulding’s OWN WORDS, IN PRINT, say it all.
