The Sun in March

3-Seasonal-March

 

During March, as winter draws to a close, the Sun rises to the south of due east and sets to the south of due west. By the end of the month, after spring begins, the Sun rises to the north of due east, at an earlier time than at the beginning of the month. Similarly, the Sun sets to the north of due west, and sets later than it did a few weeks earlier. In this way, the days grow longer as spring progresses toward summer.
