The 2018 spring equinox has arrived — here's what it is and how it works
How the spring equinox works
The Earth orbits the sun once every 365 days and 6 hours. Our planet also rotates once per day around a tilted axis.
That tilt is about 23.5 degrees (for now)and bathes different parts of the world with various intensities of light over the course of a year. Meanwhile, the planet's rotation keeps the heating even, sort of like a 7,917-mile-wide rotisserie chicken made of rock and a little water.
The spring equinox occurs when the sun's warming rays line up perpendicular to Earth's axial tilt:
If you stand directly on the equator at noon in the Eastern Time time zone at noon, the sun will appear more or less directly overhead. Your shadow will also be at its absolute minimum.
The sun also sets and rises roughly 12 hours apart during the equinox. . .

Happy #earthday. I've been lucky enough to see beautiful places like this, Kamchatka Russia, and also plenty of other places that we've trashed. Like it or not, it's our responsibility to take better care of our collective domicile. PS. Prince was the shit and these clouds remind me of one of my favorite albums of all time ☔️☔️☔️
