Residents of the Northern Hemisphere are downright giddy this time of year, waiting on the edge of their frostbitten seats for spring to finally arrive. Luckily there’s not much longer to wait: Tuesday, March 20 is the Spring Equinox this year, when the sun rises exactly in the east and remains in the sky for 12 hours, setting directly in the west. Though the science of it is profoundly interesting, most of us are more concerned about the increase in sunlight — and warmth — on the not-so-distant horizon.
Speaking of horizons: In honor of the official start of spring, we’ve picked 10 top places around the world to see a magnificent sunrise.
Tickets are $20 each or 6 for $100. Tickets are limited and the winner will be drawn June 16th at Thunderbird Harley Davidson. Meet the Darlins, get your tickets and enjoy some of the best fiery foods you can get!!
