Our 5th grade morning announcers shared an interesting fact about the Autumn Equinox today. Today the sun crosses the celestial equator moving southward. An old legend tells us that you can balance an egg upright on the Equinox. We had success balancing an egg in the main office today. Will it balance on other days of the year? We will have to experiment.
