From what I’m reading, spring starts earlier now. I missed this fact growing up – perhaps no one cared enough to tell me. But Space.com tells us (scientifically) that spring starts no later than March 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. In fact, it actually starts on March 19th for all but the eastern states. There’s some fancy mathematical explanation for the phenomena after the jump. I also learned that summer is our longest season at 93.651 days (Norther Hemisphere again). It’s a fascinating read, so check it out. On a related note – I want to try and fix my website’s seasonal changes to match this new information. I don’t have much time left.
