Happy Autumnal Equinox!

Solstices and Equinoxes

Washington Post: Autumnal equinox brings first day of fall Saturday morning
Eager to say goodbye to summer once and for all? Say hello to fall: the 2012 autumnal equinox occurs this Saturday, September 22 at 10:49 a.m. (EDT).

As the new season begins, Earth’s axis will be tilted neither away from nor towards the sun, allowing the sun’s direct rays to shine overhead at the equator before moving into the Southern Hemisphere.
In addition to wishing you all a happy equinox, I hope you all enjoy this blog's 700th post.
