Autumn begins today


 Wow, how time flies.  Fall is already here and it seems like the year has just begun.

So what is so important about Autumn? you ask.

Well, it means that today is the day that Summer officially ends and Fall begins.

The 'fancy' name for this event is "The Fall Autumnal Equinox."

So what is the Fall Autumnal Equinox and why is it important?

Well, for one thing, it is that special day at the end of summer and the beginning of fall when the sun at the equator rises in the due East and sets in the due West.

This means that both the day and the night are about 12 hours long.

To those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the days will now start getting shorter and shorter as each day passes and the nights will get longer and longer and longer ....

Until we come to the Winter Solstice when the shortest day of the year occurs.

But that is then and this is now.

And today is the Fall Autumnal Equinox.

No Click through today -- instead go outside and enjoy this long day.

Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) Begins today at Sundown

 

What is Rosh Hashanah?

It is First Day of the Jewish New Year and is also known as "The Feast of Trumpets"

This Holiday covers two days since the exact time it begins is based on when the first sliver of the New Moon is sighted.

Even though it is shown on the calendar to begin this year at Sundown today and extend through sundown tomorrow, IF the New Moon is not seen today, then the day will be observed tomorrow beginning at sundown and extending through the next day.
