One nice thing about working with drones is that the focus is mostly skyward. Taking a cue from that, today marks the change in season from winter to spring. It occurs on what is called the Vernal Equinox where there is roughly equal segments of light and darkness. This occurs when the sun is directly over the Earth’s equator. Spring equinox which is what that is occurring in our part of the world at 5:58 pm today notes when the Northern Hemisphere of the planet is slowly moving toward the Sun which leads to longer periods of sunlight during the upcoming days. (Yea!)
The spring equinox, which is what we are noting today, marks one of the two times a year when day and night are about the same length. The word equinox comes from the Latin word equinoxium, which means “equality between day and night.”
