Those in the southern hemisphere will witness the Vernal Equinox at the same time, since they are backwards and spring is coming down there… weirdos.
And, for the geek in all of us, here’s a bit more information on why the weather’s getting colder.
In the northern hemisphere, the autumnal (fall) equinox marks the time in which the Sun crosses the equator of Earth as it heads below the equatorial plane, making the daylight and night time hours about equally long.
Simultaneously, of course, the vernal (spring) equinox occurs in the southern hemisphere, as its people begin their springtime season and as those people in the northern hemisphere begin their fall quarter of the year. Via it Wire
Then, later on in the night, the moon will be completely full — on Thursday morning (September 23, 2010) at approximately 5:17 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) – at 9:17 Universal Time (UT), according to It Wire.
What does all this mean? Eh, probably something really big to chicks who like Wicca, but, overall, it just means that it’s time for more football and the World Series is around the corner.
It also means that girls in climates with seasons (like mine) are going to start wearing lots more clothing soon. Blah.
