Fall Equinox

Misc. Info

On Monday, September 22 Autumn begins as the sun crosses the equator on it’s way towards the Southern hemisphere. If you live at the equator, the day will be divided into 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. However, because we are roughly 40˚ north of the equator, we won’t experience our day of equal light and darkness for another 4 days. On September 26th, if you live in San Francisco the sun rises and sets at 7:01. For those of you who live in New York the sun rises at 6:47 AM and sets at 6:46 PM. Depending on where you live, you can check out http://www.sunrisesunset.com to figure out which day you will have equal amounts of light and darkness where you live.
