- What are the sunrise and sunset times where you are?
- How many hours of daylight are there today in your locale?
There are lots of places to look this information up, from the US Naval Observatory (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/index.php) to TimeAndDate.Com (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/sunrise.html), and more.
- What spiritual lessons or reminders does Spring Equinox bring you?
Other recent astronomical events:
There was also a solar eclipse today, visible in much of Europe, northern Africa, and northern Asia. We had brilliant sun mixed with scudding clouds here, but I did get some really cool views using a colander and a piece of white paper taped up to the side of the house. That was pretty neat!
Earlier this week, much of the UK saw some gorgeous auroras. My city was fogged in, so I didn't get to see any, but there are some fabulous pictures at the AuroraWatch UK Flickr pool: https://www.flickr.com/groups/aurorawatch.
I hope this Equinox brings either Spring or the promise of Spring to all of you in the Northern Hemisphere who have had unusual amounts of cold, snow, or both this winter, and to anyone who is just. ready. for. Spring.
