FACT????

indeed, THIS year the vernal equinox it's on 20th at 18:20 ~ (UT, i.e. GMT)

due to astronomical reasons, and leap years introduced with the grgorian calendar, the date is receding slowly, until it resets every 100 years.
Next year it will be last time in this century it will fall on 21st, in the earliest minutes.

Interesting, I went to primary school end of '60s, and I got taught that it was 21st, everyone knows it as a very basic FACT!

Did they already adjust and begun teaching that it falls on the 20th?

It would be the first time I realise it!
:lol:

a generational divide suddenly fell on my shoulders:

"In my youth, spring fell on the 21st..." :(

So the earth IS warming up, with spring coming earlier. Except for this year of course.
