With day and night equal lengths today, the sun is crossing the celestial equator. In ancient times, this was called The First Point of Aries because back then, the sun was just entering the constellation of the ram as winter ended. Times change and stars drift (see precession), so today we would probably name it The Second (or Third) Point of Pisces.

Round these parts, though, we just call it spring.

Your image for this post comes from the amazingly talented and incredibly friendly, Kathleen Earthrowl.

Yes, also discovered at Phoenix Gallery in Park City.

More on her in a bit.
