Spring is Here!

Eggs Stand On End To Mark Spring's Arrival

Well, today is the the vernal equinox, known more informally as the first day of spring.  It’s a blustery, rainy day here, and it probably would have gone unnoticed by me except for the mention on Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy Blog.  The equinoxes are a busy time for Phil, who debunked the idea that on the equinoxes, you can balance an egg on end: it turns out, you can do it any day of the year if you have a little patience and practice. Phil’s egg balancing was what originally drew my attention to his blog,  so I wish him and all my readers a happy spring.
