Spring Equinox 2020: The First Day of Spring

On Thursday, March 19, 2020, at 11:50 p.m. EDT, we welcome the official arrival of spring with the Vernal Equinox. This is the moment in the Northern Hemisphere when the Sun crosses the equator and the days and nights are equal in hours.

Traditionally, we’ve celebrated the first day of spring on March 21, but astronomers and calendar manufacturers alike now say that the spring season starts one day earlier, March 20th, in all time zones in North America. Yet believe it or not, we greet spring in 2020 on Thursday, March 19, 2020! Even earlier!
