September Equinox

Earlier this September 23rd morning, the September Equinox also called the Fall Equinox or Autumnal Equinox officially signaled the start of the astronomical season of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. This day of change from the summer season is equally split with 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of nighttime. The air will pick up some breeze, the temps will cool down and the colors will change in the leaves very slowly at first and then seem to vanish from their stems and branches overnight. 

This time of year has a crisp feeling of tomorrow in a Keats kind of way. The head races of the fall schedule will make way for the cow bell regattas of the spring rowing season and the Spring, Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere while the Southern Hemisphere will embrace autumn.
