I figure that if you happen to be about 20 miles west of Lincoln, NE (i.e., the middle of nowhere), you can enjoy the synchrony of the moment of the equinox and sunrise. My Colorado friends will get the sunrise a little after and we in Iowa and Minnesota and Wisconsin will get it a bit after. Aim, maybe we can average it out. :)
