Big seasonal changes coming in March Today’s Video of the Day from NASA describes what we can look forward to in the skies throughout the month of March.
Early risers will be able to view Saturn in the southeast around one hour before sunrise.
This month also marks the 40th anniversary of the Voyager 1 flyby of Jupiter in 1979.
The Spring Equinox occurs on the 20th, which will officially kick off the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The solstices and equinoxes are used mostly in calendars to mark the beginning and end of seasons but are not themselves related to the causes of the seasons. Our year is divided up into four seasons: summer, fall, winter, spring. Unless someone lives at the equator, each season delivers different weather patterns.
1 Earth’s axial tilt plays a large role in creating seasons on our planet. 2 The hemisphere (north or south) tilted toward the Sun receives more heat during that time. 3 Closeness to the Sun is NOT a reason for the seasons. Big seasonal changes coming in March as seen above in video shows the changes the weather takes as the spring season takes off. Also the cahnge in daylight light lasting longer and not getting dark early. Generally, it’s warmer in spring and summer, and cooler in autumn and winter as well shown. Showing the different changes throughout the seasons as far as the change in weather, sunlight.
