What is the Autumn Equinox?
Equinoxes take place twice a year, when the Sun is positioned directly on the Equator, causing all areas of the planet to receive the same amount of light and darkness. Today, day and night will last 12 hours, depending on the brightness of the sun.
While in the Southern Hemisphere the event marks the end of summer and the arrival of autumn, in the Northern Hemisphere the Equinox indicates the beginning of spring. In September, the seasons change between the hemispheres: it will be spring in the south and autumn in the north.
During the fall, the incidence of sunlight gradually decreases, making the days smaller than the nights. Autumn officially begins at 6:58 pm on Wednesday and continues until 12:54 pm on June 21, when winter begins.
