Fall is Here!

On Wednesday night, we went outside to watch fall arrive. Informed by news anchors and weathermen, fall arrived at 10:09 on September 22. So, we filmed this event.

Per Wikipedia - An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth's equator. The term equinox can also be used in a broader sense, meaning the date when such a passage happens. The name "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because around the equinox, the night and day are approximately equally long. It may be better understood to mean that latitudes +L and -L north and south of the Equator experience nights of equal length.

Happy Fall!
