The March equinox will occur at 3:45 p.m. Friday. That is when the sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. It marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to see the total solar eclipse, unless you plan to be in the North Atlantic Ocean.
