Happy Autumnal Equinox

Autumnal Equinox 2011

In the northern hemisphere the autumnal equinox occurs at 9:04 a.m. UTC today. An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from, nor towards the Sun. I always look forward to this date because it marks the change of seasons and the impending arrival of the cool breezes and lovely colors of fall. It also means it’s time to start playing with bike lights again, which happens to be one of my favorite fall/winter pastimes.
