Educational Explaining Equinoxes Video | The First Day Of Fall Brings Autumn Equinox

25 sec read

Today marks the end of summer and the first day of fall. At least if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere. Those crazy people in the Southern Hemisphere are entering spring instead.

The first day of fall is marked by the autumn equinox. Which means that the sun is directly over the equator, giving us equal amounts of day and night.

This video from National Geographic explains what equinoxes are. The word “equinox” is literally Latin for equal night. They happen in March and September, roughly six months apart.

As interesting as all of this is, I’m more concerned with how the move into fall will affect me personally. Shorter days and poorer weather can be rather depressing.
