We often talk about Autumn when the nights start to draw in and temperatures start feeling cooler.
There are two equinoxes every year on 23rd September and 20th March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. Astronomical Autumn begins on the 23rd September and it ends on the 22nd December. The meteorological calendar has the first day of autumn as starting the 1st September and ending on the 30th November.
