DENVILLE, NJ - Spring has finally arrived! The mercury in that old thermometer is slowly starting to rise, giving us warmer days, and with the recent setting of our clocks forward by one hour, longer days. 

According to The Old Farmers Almanac, the spring equinox starts on Wednesday, March 20, at 5:58 p.m. marking the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

The Old Farmers Almanac also notes that this year there will be a full moon, which happened less than one day of the March equinox 19 years ago, in 2000, and the next time will be 11 years from now, in 2030. They also point out that this year will also be a Supermoon! So for photography buffs, get your camera’s ready.
