Friday, September 22, 2017 at 1:02 PM (PDT) is the fall equinox, also called the autumnal equinox. There are two equinoxes every year in March and September when the angle of the Earth’s axis is oriented neither away from nor in the direction of the Sun. On this day the Sun’s rays shine directly on the equator.
The autumnal equinox occurs when the Sun crosses over the celestial equator from north to south. At this time of the year, day and night hours are evenly balanced. It also signifies the first day of autumn, or fall, in the Gregorian calendar.
