Fall is upon us and it’s about time for the Autumnal Equinox!!!

The autumnal equinox—also called the September equinox or fall equinox—arrived on Thursday, September 22. This date marks the start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere.

All though the harvest moon has already occurred on September 10th, coming October 9th we will have the Hunters moon. Both moons are astronomical moons that indicate the start of fall and the start of pre-winter hunting season!! To get a great view of the upcoming moon, you’ll want to make sure you are at a high enough point to look out over any tall buildings. As the sun sets and shimmers its last light upon a rising moon, be sure to look up when the moon will be rising and at its highest point. Knowing these times will help to ensure that you get to see its maximum brightness!

Happy Autumn!

“It is the summer’s great last heat,
 It is the fall’s first chill: They meet.”
