Autumn Equinox

This is how I understand it.

Today is the autumn equinox. The sun hits the earth side on, pole to pole, and so rose exactly due east this morning and will set exactly due west tonight.

Day and night are equal, for today only, and after today, for us in the northern hemisphere, night outlives day and shall do so for the next six months.

The world we live in.
