Happy Vernal Equinox! At 6:29 a.m. today, the Sun crossed the celestial equator on its way north along the ecliptic. All over the globe, day and night are approximately equal. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the start of spring. For our friends down under, it is the start of fall.

Traditionally on this day we look for signs of spring! We see them all over Mystic Seaport, as our soil warms and our gardens begin to wake up.

Happy Spring!
