Happy Autumnal Equinox 2018 Say goodbye to summer as the sun passes over equator marking the first day of autumn
September 23rd is the Autumnal Equinox – which officially marks the end of summer.
Why is it called an equinox? The word comes from the Latin aequus, meaning “equal” and nox, meaning “night.”
During the equinox, the Sun crosses what we call the “celestial equator.” Imagine a line that marks the equator on Earth extending up into the sky above the equator from north to south. Earth’s two hemispheres receive the Sun’s rays about equally. The Sun is overhead at noon as seen from the equator, so at this point, the amount of night time and daytime (sunlight) are roughly equal to each other.
Will autumn bring crisp, cool weather—or, unseasonably warm weather? It depends where you live, let’s hope for warm, to continue on from a lovely summer.
