A Smile For The Equinox

Here is a photo of Venus, Jupiter, and the Earth's moon, appearing as if smiling, taken by Scott Chaney:

Day and night will be approximately equal length today, March 20 2010 at 1:32 PM EDT. That event is called the equinox, meaning "equal night." In the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of Spring. Each day after the equinox will be longer and each night shorter until the longest day of the year at the solstice in June when summer begins. In the Southern hemisphere, this March equinox marks the beginning of Autumn, where days will be shorter until the solstice in June marking the beginning of the Southern winter.
