There was a lunar eclipse in January and the largest supermoon of the year was in February.

After today, the Northern Hemisphere will tilt towards the sun, giving us longer, sunnier and - thankfully - warmer days. During the equinox, the sun's rays are focused over the equator. The word equinox comes from the Latin for equal and night.

The official start of spring takes place at 4:58 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, otherwise known as the Vernal (Spring) Equinox. The first day of spring called Spring Equinox falls on a Thursday. However, this term can be used at times to refer to the whole spring equinox period. Each year consist of two equinoxes one occurs in March and the other in September. This means means almost equal day and night all over the world! Just enjoy it, because according to Fortune, the last time the full moon and spring equinox occurred on the same day was March 20, 1981. Its actually an 8-minute difference. Depending on Earth's orbital position, either the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern is illuminated longer during a 24-hour cycle, C. Alex Young, associate director for science in the Heliophysics Science Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, told Live Science. Essentially, it's the biannual event when the sun is directly over the equator.

Happy spring, happy equinox and a very happy Holi! "Many communications satellites orbit around the Equator, and consumers may experience slow Internet connections, radio static, or frozen television screens during equinoctial sun outages", states NGS.
