Today is Autumnal Equinox

There has been a bit of chill in the air and after a bit on online research I found out that today officially marks the last day of summer and is the Autumnal Equinox, any excuse for a party!  Luckily the weather outside is anything but frightful today, so I don’t actually feel like I am saying good bye to summer.

AUTUMNAL EQUINOX The Autumnal Equinox is observed annually when the sun can be seen directly overhead along the equator, marking the end of summer and beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. The autumn equinox is one of two days when all points on Earth except the polar regions see the sun rise and set at due east and due west. With few exceptions, all latitudes see almost exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 of dark.
