The astronomical fall begins on September 22 – the revised Google logo reminds of this. The autumn calendar is valid from September 23. Today, however, is the autumn equinox. From tomorrow, for the next six months, the sun will illuminate the northern hemisphere shorter.
Astronomical autumn begins on Wednesday, September 22, which is exactly the day before the beginning of calendar autumn. Today, Google Doodle reminds us of the advent of astronomical autumn, which on this occasion temporarily changed the appearance of the popular browser logo. Today, Internet users are greeted by a hedgehog and autumn leaves, which – thanks to a special animation – fly through the search engine window.
Fall 2021. What is the Fall Equinox?
Astronomical fall begins Wednesday, September 22 at 21:21. Today is also the autumn equinox. The equinox is the phenomenon whereby the sun shines shorter illumination on one of the hemispheres – in this case the northern hemisphere – for six months. During the equinoxes, the northern and southern hemispheres receive the same amount of light from the sun, and the day and night are equally 12 hours long.
Fall 2021. What weather should I expect?
With the arrival of autumn, there is also a time when we have to take out of the wardrobe an item of clothing that has not been used for the last months. What weather should we prepare for this year? – August in 2021 was abnormally cold – said Grzegorz Walijewski, press spokesman of the IMWM-PIB. He also added that we can expect a true golden autumn for Poland this year. Fans of winter entertainment, however, must be patient, because the forecasts indicate that the temperature in December will be so high that we will have to wait for the first snow until 2022.
