The Vernal Equinox (first day of spring) will occur tonight, March 19, at 11:49 p.m. when the sun will then be directly over a specific point on the Earth’s equator moving northward.

For those familiar with the vernal equinox, it most often falls on March 20, but this year is different, thanks to the leap year that we observed in the year 2000

This is the earliest that the vernal equinox will occur across the contiguous United States in 124 years. There are two specific reasons for this variation of the date: leap years and daylight saving time, according to space.com.
