Earliest Easter for 100 years

According to National Review, Easter will not be this early again until 2160. It can in theory be one day earlier than it is this year, but will not be until 2285, and last was in 1818.

Easter is observed on the Sunday after the first full moon on or after the day of the vernal equinox which is normally 21 March.

My mate David Farrar at Kiwi Blog works out the science and shows that 2008 Easter Sunday is the 23rd day of the third month.
