A new day dawns this morning, signalling the ‘death’ of summer.
Today is September 21, a ‘moment’ in a year known to astronomers and meteorologists as autumnal equinox, and the autumn season “officially” begins today (In the Southern hemisphere, it’s the reverse: spring begins). In all parts of the earth, the daytime hours and nighttime hours are equal (12 hours each). The sun rises and sets at the exact eastern and western horizon.
This photo was taken yesterday (Sep 20), the last day of summer. The sun set at a point in the western horizon (at the middle of the photo) somewhere behind the trees (compare this with my SUNSET photos of December, March and June).
