Word of the Day: “equinox”—the moment today, 23 Sept, when the Sun‘s path (ecliptic) crosses the celestial equator, resulting in a near-even worldwide division of day & night.
A moment of balance;
a beginning (in the northern hemisphere) of autumn. Aequi- ‘equal’; noct- ‘night’. (via @RobGMacfarlane)
