The Autumn Equinox is here! An equinox is an astronomical event in which the plane of Earth’s equator passes the center of the Sun, making night and day nearly the same length. Equinoxes occur twice a year, around March 21st (vernal or spring equinox) and September 23rd (autumnal equinox). Autumn (also called fall in North America) marks the transition from summer into winter. Enjoy the change of seasons!
