Autumn is here: say goodbye to summer.

Hello children,
There are two equinoxes every year: in September and in March.
The sun positition in the sky dictates the equinoxes because it shines directly on the equator and the lenght of day and night is nearly the same -12 hours all over the world-.
The word equinox comes form Latin and it means equal night.
The equinox in September is known like the autumnal (fall) equinox in the nothern hemisphire.
September equinox in Alicante was 23rd September at 4:29.
Here you can see the earth during September equinox.

However, the spring equinox starts in the south hemisphire.
Let's practise the season song.
