Spring begins – finally!

768x512_03191724_migrationAstronomical spring officially begins at 1:57-pm ADT in New Brunswick and many are heralding its arrival after a long, harsh winter.

The sun is now directly over the equator and its most direct rays will gradually start moving north until reaching the Tropic of Cancer in late June for the first day of summer.

The migration is caused by the tilt of Earth’s axis and the movement of Earth around the sun.
