Welcome Autumn 2012!

Did You Know:

  • September 22, 2012, marks the beginning of autumn, when the sun crosses over the Earth’s equator on its way south — an event in the Northern Hemisphere called the autumnal equinox.
  • The word “equinox” comes from the Latin words for “equal night” and refers to when day and night are most equal in length, which occurs twice a year with the arrival of spring and fall.
  • The best meteor shower show of 2012 will occur late this fall. The Geminids will reach maximum activity December 13 to14. There will be a new moon on December 13, which means viewing conditions will be near perfect throughout both nights with an anticipated 75 fiery displays per hour. Mark your calendar!
