Was talking, over the w/end, with a friend about equinox being equal hours of daylight and darkness and she made the comment that it certainly didn’t feel equal, just looking at the sky. I decided to go and see.
It looks like the actual hours of equal light and dark took place, this year, on 17th & 18th March. This isn’t really surprising as the equinox itself moves backwards due to precession … *g*. But it is interesting.
