Sep 22, 2006 - 10:24 AMThe autumnal equinox, which occurs tonight at precisely 9:03pm PDT, is defined as the point at which the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south.
The word equinox means "equal night"; day and night are the same length of time.
Hm. Maybe that standing-a-raw-egg-on-end trick will work better during *this* equinox ;-)
