Happy Autumnal Equinox 2020

Today (Tuesday, September 22nd) is the first official day of autumn for the northern hemisphere. The word autumn simply indicates the season following summer. The origin of the word is lost to time as far as I can tell, but this day marks the moment when the Earth's orbit causes the Sun to cross Earth's equator, and the southern hemisphere's spring season begins, and the northern hemisphere's winter season commences. This year the Autumnal Equinox occurs at 6:30amPST.
