So Shelley texted me tonight with a picture of her broom standing straight up and down. So of course being the sciency person I am, I had to try it myself! Yes, it worked! Freaky! So how is this possible? Ok, I looked it up. It is because we are close to the Spring Equinox. "At the equinoxes, the tilt of Earth relative to the Sun is zero, which means that Earth’s axis neither points toward nor away from the Sun." The gravity I guess is a little different because of our magnetic poles being straight up and down instead of tilted like it normally is. You can do this with an egg as well. Cool! I am totally showing my students this tomorrow, even if I do sound like a goof on the video!
