It’s that time of year as we transition into fall! Cooler temperatures, football, leaves changing colors and more!
Have you heard of these fun facts about the first day of fall?
- Unique Shadows: On the autumnal equinox, you can observe a fascinating phenomenon known as the “equinoctial shadow.” If you stand an upright object (like a stick or a sundial) in the ground, it will cast the longest shadow of the year on this day. This occurs because of the angle at which sunlight enters the Earth’s atmosphere during the equinox.
- Equinox Terminology: The first day of fall is also known as the “autumnal equinox.” The term “equinox” comes from the Latin words “aequus” (equal) and “nox” (night), signifying that on this day, the length of day and night is approximately equal in most parts of the world.
- Symbolism of Fall: Fall is often associated with symbolism such as the changing colors of leaves, pumpkins, and the Thanksgiving holiday in many parts of the world. It’s a season known for its beauty and the sense of transition from the warmth of summer to the chill of winter, making it a popular and cherished time of year.
