Maybe you’ve been sleeping and thinking, “it’s technically not yet Fall.”
Like that guy, we bet you’ll be surprised to read this! Fall is here!
Maybe you’re thinking, “Wait. One. Minute! Fall starts tomorrow!”
Many calenders reference the first day of Fall being on the 23rd (Tuesday), but based on its true definition, Fall begins tonight at 9:29 PM (CDT).
Why? Fall begins when we reach the Autumnal Equinox. The Autumnal Equinox is when the sun is directly over the equator and both hemispheres receive the same amount of light during the day. Thus, the first full day of Fall will be tomorrow, but Fall by it’s true definition begins tonight. For more info on the Autumnal Equinox follow this link.
