First Day of Fall

September 22 is first day of fall—the autumnal equinox.

The autumnal equinox is an astronomical event that marks the start of autumn (or “fall”). In the Northern Hemisphere, the autumnal equinox occurs in September, in the South Hemisphere, it occurs in March.

The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night.” The fall and spring equinoxes are the only days of the year in which the Sun crosses the celestial equator.

It felt like it already started as I turned on my heater earlier in the week.
