Autumn Is Here...!
I don't know about you, but I am ready for a bit of cooler weather! It won't hurt my feelings at all!
I did a little research in my favorite book, The Old Farmer's Almanac (of course!) and came up with some facts that I thought you might enjoy...
The autumnal equinox is defined as the point at which the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south.
The celestial equator is the circle in the celestial sphere halfway between the celestial poles. It can be thought of as the plane of Earth’s equator projected out onto the sphere. The word equinox means “equal night,” when night and day are of the same duration.
See more about “The Reason for the Seasons.”
I'm sure that a lot of you Already knew this...but a little refresher never hurt anyone! At least, in most things...!
Now let's get some coffee and sit around the kitchen table for a bit! No patio today because it's still raining...and it's a tad cool! After all, it's Autumn!
