We are now in the Spring Equinox which is, by definition, when the time of sunlight and dark are equal in a day, regardless of your location on the planet. Spring and the fall equinox are the only two days of the annual cycle when the sun rises due east and sets due west. Each day between now and the Summer (for the Northern Hemisphere) Solstice, the sun will be rising farther north of east and setting north of west. If you would like to explore this and other natural cycles more, please consider attending our annual Natural Navigation class near the Fall Equinox on September 24, 2016. More information about that class can be found here.
