first day of spring

Today is the spring equinox 2012 or more commonly known as the first day of spring. What is an equinox? Per wikipedia - "An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth's equator. The term equinox can also be used in a broader sense, meaning the date when such a passage happens."

Have a great day - enjoy!
