Ofcourse~ ffyou lived in the Central~M6ffn~i'r~, * or the Pacific Time Zone, then the first moment of spring happened on the 19th at 11:30, 10:30, and 9:30 p.m. respectively. At that - moment the sun was poised exactly over the vernal equinox, the originpoint in the sky where the sun's path crossed the celestial equator, :, Earth's terrestrial equator projected into Space At that time the sun stood at the zenith on the equator, and in the next moment, passed into the Northern Hemisphere where Sol will remain favoring us until 10:21 a.m., EDT, September 22 when it will once again stand over the equator, but now will be headed southward into the Southern Hemisphere. This really should be our New Year because it is the successive crossings of the sun over the vernal equinox that give us the beat of our civil year, the rhy~un that governs our calendars and not the actual orbiting of the Earth around the sun. Our orbit takes 365.25636 days and is called the sidereal year. Two crossings of Lhe vernal equinox take 365.24219 days which keeps our calendar dates in sync with the seasons. The civil year, also known as the tropical year, is 20 minutes, 24.5 seconds shorter than the Earth's orbital period which is denoted as the sidereal year. Another curious factor is that if you count the interval of time between the vemal and autumnal equinoxes and the interval of time between the autumnal and vernal equinoxes (and I did), you get an interval of time slightly over 7.5 days longer between the first day of spring and the first day of autumn. This is because the Earth orbits the sun in an ellipse, getting closest to the sun in early January and farthest ; from Sol in early July. This change in distance is reflected in the orbital velocity of the Earth, which is slower from spring to autumn when the Earth is at a greater distance from the sun. The date of greatest distance can occur from July 3rd through 6th of each year. www.astronomy.org [ATILIII [I~11111 IIIIIIllll IIX We apprecist6 your photos, comments, stories and ideas. editor@thecatalinaislander.coin, 635 Crescent Avenue, Suite A .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. . ....: ................................................................................................................................................. !
