Happy Shunbun no Hi/Higan no Chu-Nichi/Ostara/Norouz/Spring Equinox/or Whatever you Call it…

But wait! There’s more.

This Spring Equinox, aka 1st Day of Spring also coincides with a Super Moon!

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.

Yes, Happy Supermoon Spring Equinox Day!!

But Wait there is even more.

Not only is the Spring Equinox coinciding with a Supermoon but there is a full solar eclipse.

Yes, Happy Supermoon powered Solar Eclipse Spring Equinox Day!!!!

Enjoy it people these do not come around very often!

Watching the Eclipse, Unfortunately Smart Phones really do not work at taking photos of solar eclipses.

P.S.

A little old lady popped into the office just as the eclipse was ending, and while she was dealing with a support guy she mentioned “All those people waiting for the eclipse, and it never came!” so we handed her a set of glasses and pointed her at the sun. She was amazed!
