Happy First Day of Autumn
Today marks the first day of Autumn! Yay, the first day of fall is finally here.
Here’s the science:
The autumnal equinox takes place 9:49 a.m. The center of the Sun spends a roughly equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on the Earth, night and day being of roughly the same length. The date at which sunset and sunrise becomes exactly 12 hours apart is known as the equilux. Because times of sunset and sunrise vary with an observer’s geographic location (longitude and latitude), the equilux likewise depends on location and does not exist for locations sufficiently close to the Equator.
Here’s the fun:
Oh by the way we are 93 days away from Christmas.
