Can you imagine that there are 'things you need to know' about fall? That headline comes from National Geographic. So I headed out to find the top 5 things I would really need to know. I didn't find 5 things - I found one fact that was most interesting from timeanddate.com.
4.The Equinox is a Specific Moment...
Contrary to popular belief, equinoxes are no day-long events, even though many cultures choose to celebrate it as such. Instead, they occur at the exact moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s Equator. At this instant, the Earth's rotational axis is neither tilted away from nor towards the Sun.
