"The September equinox takes place whenever the sun is at zenith – straight overhead – at the Earth’s equator. This magical moment signals the beginning of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. On the day of an equinox, the sun rises due east and sets due west all over the world" http://earthsky.org/tonight/celebrate-the-september-22-equinox-and-the-first-quarter-moon
We've welcomed the breath of cool air we've had in these last couple of weeks after a long, hot summer, and we've been enjoying these golden days that are great for taking long walks.
