The days are noticeably shorter. The nights are cooler.On the first day of fall—the autumnal equinox—day and night are each about 12 hours long (with the actual time of equal day and night, in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring a few days after the autumnal equinox). The Sun crosses the celestial equator going southward; it rises exactly due east and sets exactly due west.
The barns have been filling up with hay, straw and the last of the corn to be harvested.
We start into our Autumn months on the weekend. Sneaks in on September 22, 10:49 A.M. EDT in North America. I am really sad to see the end of summer this year as I did not get to really enjoy it all.. Sigh! Too much work and no play. Here's hoping for a glorious, long and warm fall!!!
