The Vernal Equinox!


I almost forgot that today is the day that if you were standing on the equator and looked up at precisely the right moment, your would see that the sun was directly overhead.

And then your eyes would burn out of their sockets.

There is a beautiful Astronomy Picture of the Day today which mentions the equinox. Go have a look, you won't be sorry.
