So March 20 at 05:48 UT (11:48 p.m. tonight my local time) the center of the Sun will appear to be directly over the celestial equator, and it will be the moment of the Vernal Equinox. Got your eggs handy? Every year I get people asking me about my egg-standing technique, which I have honed over years of practice. I decided to make a video tutorial so that you, my BABloggee, can reproduce (haha! get it? It's an egg!) this experience for yourself.

So get cracking. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I kill me.

Update: Right after I posted this, Universe Today put up a post on it as well!
