Happy Persian New Year – سال نو مبارک

Haft Sheen:  The 7 S…, a set of objects all starting with the persian letter Sheen      
People in and from Iran, Kurdistan and Afghanistan celebrate the beginning of their new year today. By precise astronomical calculation it started already yesterday at 11:02 GMT, since astronomers calculated that at this very minute the duration of day and night is equal (vernal equinox).
For today, I’d only like to wish all Iranian people a happy Nowruz, hoping that 2572 will be the last year of a 34 years long period of political and intellectual oppression in their home country.
I will later today add an alternative calculation here proposing a more rational estimation of the precise timepoint of Nowruz.
