Spring springs today—at 5:58 pm, Eastern Time! It's the Spring (or "Vernal") Equinox, a word which means "Equal Night." It's the date (and time) when day and night are exactly the same length. From this point forward, the days will be longer than the nights (that is, until the Autumnal Equinox on 23 September).
We will also be treated to a concurrent full moon—and a "Super Moon" at that. Slightly closer to the Earth, the full moon will appear larger and brighter than usual. The last time we enjoyed a full moon during the Vernal Equinox was 38 years ago (20 March 1981—and I was a Senior in High School).
This Art Deco vase, made by Stangl in the 1930's, has an elegant ribbed neck, "ribbon" handles and a refreshing mint green glaze. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
