Happy Spring 2015 - Solar eclipse, supermoon, spring equinox: Friday will see 3 majo - WFLA News Channel 8

Solar eclipse, supermoon, spring equinox: Friday will see 3 majo - WFLA News Channel 8

The spring equinox is the time of year when day and night are of equal duration. It marks the in-between point of the year's shortest and longest days.

Today, March 20, the Earth's axis will be perpendicular to the sun's rays, which only happens twice a year at each of the two equinoxes. After that, earth will continue moving, making for longer days in the northern hemisphere.

Because of the symbolism, the equinox has long been celebrated as a new chapter or renewal. It's also linked to Easter and Passover, The Independent reports.

The equinox will happen at the same time as a solar eclipse in 2053 and 2072, though it doesn't always appear as close together as that.

Ides of March

Ides of March

Read the complete post by clicking the link above.

The soothsayer's warning to Julius Caesar, "Beware the Ides of March," has forever imbued that date with a sense of foreboding. But in Roman times the expression "Ides of March" did not necessarily evoke a dark mood—it was simply the standard way of saying "March 15." Surely such a fanciful expression must signify something more than merely another day of the year? Not so. Even in Shakespeare's time, sixteen centuries later, audiences attending his play Julius Caesar wouldn't have blinked twice upon hearing the date called the Ides.

The term Ides comes from the earliest Roman calendar, which is said to have been devised by Romulus, the mythical founder of Rome.
