SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!

No, this isn’t a Green-eyed Monster. It’s a look at the sun by NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center and Prediction Testbed. The sun was located directly over the Earth’s equator at 12:57 PM EDT today (Thursday March 20). This was the occurrence of our Vernal Equinox. Data from this image is used to determine Solar flares that can affect communication and create the Aurora over the earth’s Polar regions.
