It isn't officially spring yet, but we appear to have reached vernal equinox, as evidenced by this:

Note the "sunrise" and "sunset" times - exactly twelve hours zero minutes apart.

Sounds good to me!..:D

Interesting to see how many days it stays 12 hrs. for each.

(I'll guess 10 days)

The Sun Map software is a fantastic way of viewing the changing seasons, and how the sun (day and night) show on the earth.

You're right Craig, different rise and set times but exactly 12 hours here as well. In fact on the 21st, the day is 12 hours and 13 minutes long.

Looks like we picked up two minutes already...

Gee, my 'Sunday morning unscientific guess' was way off!

I wonder if these are program estimates, ...because there are the few days before equinox, then at equinox, then the few days after equinox.
Its safe to say, that there is approx. a week of equal day/night.

Put it this way, I'm really looking forward to the switch to rain...:)
