Happy Vernal Equinox March 20, 2011

Posted by jcconwell in Astronomy.

SUNSET DUE WEST in Charleston Illinois

Today, at 23:21 UT (18:21 p.m. Eastern US time), the Sun’s odometer resets, and it once again finds itself at the celestial coordinates of 0h0m0s Right Ascension, 0°0m0s declination. Or, in other words, it’s the vernal equinox!

More on this at the BAD ASTRONOMERS BLOG .

But one more event today! One of my physics/astro students, Tyler L. , has a birthday today…So HAPPY BIRTHDAY TYLER.
