Spring is Here – Learn About the March Equinox

Learn About the March Equinox

Find out all about the March equinox.

Get ready for spring and more daylight with the coming of the March equinox on March 20. It’s a seasonal phenomenon that occurs biannually; once in the spring and once in the fall. Let’s learn about the March equinox with these facts that may be of interest to those of us unfamiliar with the occasion.

What is an Equinox?

Both the spring equinox and the fall equinox are the two days of the year when the sun is directly above the equator. As a result, the length of the day and the length of the night are each 12 hours at the equator. The March equinox marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

How Does an Equinox Work?

The earth is tilted at a 23.5-degree angle. As the earth rotates around the sun, the earth’s tilt is responsible for giving us seasons. On the day of the equinox, the sun is directly over the equator.

Personally, this is one of our most favorite days of the year.  The promise of summer is right around the corner, and the new life that spring gives us with Mother Nature putting on an amazing show.  Flowers are in bloom, trees are displaying blossoms and new leaves.  The creatures in the wild are giving birth.  It’s definitely a time of renewal.  Also about this period, we change our clocks.  We lose an hour by setting our clocks ahead one hour, but we also gain more sunlight and lighter, longer days and evenings.
