Did You Know? Spring Equinox



Did you know that this time of year the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of night and day are equal in all parts of the world? My family in North Carolina is celebrating by balancing an egg straight up! Can you do this? I just tried and it didn't work here in California, but again I don't have the patience to keep trying.
