What is the significance of the fall equinox?

2 Answers

Equinox comes from the Latin words “aequi,” which means equal, and “nox,” or night. On the equinox, day and night are of nearly equal length across the planet. For half the year, the North Pole is tilted slightly toward the sun, bringing longer days to the Northern Hemisphere.
