Happy Fall Y’All. “Weather” it feels like fall or not, the Autumn Equinox arrives this Saturday, September 22 at 8:54 p.m. CDT.
At a precise moment each September, on either the 21st, 22nd or 23rd, the sun appears directly above the equator, marking the exact time of the autumnal equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere. And while us folks here in Central Texas do not often feel the temperature change or see the leaves start to change colors in September, we do get to view some awesome sunsets and look forward to cooler evening temperatures.
