You Hear That?

It’s the sound of the sun crossing the point on the celestial equator where it intersects with the ecliptic plane. This precise moment occurred about 2 hours ago.


In honor of this semi-annual convergence, I suggest you sleep tonight for exactly the same amount of time that you will be awake tomorrow. Or balance some eggs.

I was on the Harborview to UWMC shuttle when at what I'm assuming was the exact moment of the vernal equinox, some guy loudly announced, "This is the exact moment of the vernal equinox."

It was awkward.
