Happy Autumn! Last night at 10:29PM EST the seasons officially changed from Summer to Fall. The date of this change is known as the Autumnal (Fall) Equinox. The word Equinox means "equal night" and comes from the Latin words aequus (equal) and nox (night). On this date the sun is striking directly on the equator, resulting in approximately equal amounts of daylight and darkness around the globe.
