The word “Equinox” literally means “equal night,” and it marks the two times a year when day and night are equal because the sun aligns with the equator, or at least pretty darn close. This year, the Fall Equinox, or autumnal equinox, will occurred on September 22nd at 9:30 am EST but can occur anytime between September 21st – 24th.
