In 2020, springtime families (also known as Equinox or Vernal Equinox) in the spring take place on Thursday, March 19, more than a century ago! This event is on the first day of spring astronomical day in the northern hemisphere. Before you balance this egg, read it!
If you are as obsessed with the calendar as we are, you may have noticed something strange about Spring Equal History this year. That’s right – it’s back to normal! But that’s a small thing.
In most parts of the last century, spring has been favored on March 20 or 21. However, this year, Titanic takes place on the 19th all-American time zone, making it the first spring to appear in our lives. The last time spring arrived was in 1896 – which was 124 years ago!
Naturally, this raises some important questions, such as: Why is Swine earlier this year? Will the dates change before and after? Will the Equinox be on March 21 again?
On the day of the march, the sun crosses the equator from south to north. It is called “Heavenly Letter Equator” because it is an imaginary line in the sky above the earth’s equator.
If you were standing on the equator, the sun would pass straight overhead on the north path.
Equinoxes are only twice a year that the sun rises in the east and the west decides for us all on earth!
WHEN DO THE SEASONS BEGIN?
Each season has both an astronomical start and a seasonal start. It sounds complicated, but trust us, it is not! The astronomical start date is based on the sun’s position in relation to the Earth, while the date of the meteorological start is based on the 12-month calendar and the annual temperature cycle.
