autumn equinox is coming

21 Sep

london 10.09pm 17.6C dry wednesday 2016

i nearly forgot, but it is that time of year again, when the autumn equinox comes round. supposedly it is tomorrow. 22nd sept. but i think it will be on the 23rd sept.

Sep. 21, 2016 Rise Set
Actual Time 6:45 AM BST 7:00 PM BST
Length of Day
12h 14m
Tomorrow will be 3m56s shorter.

so u can see tomorrow wont be 12hr length of day. it might even be 24th sept , even 25th sept,before we truly get a 12 hr day. then the days will shorten and the nights lengthen. but we wont notice the difference much until mid oct when the clocks fall back, then we shall really notice the night closing in. this year 2016, clocks go back on 30th oct. so we are going to have longer duration of summertime this year.

      actually summer is still here, at least in london. it is warm. and i think there are more warm days ahead so autumn wont be felt until oct i think. but in terms of official autumn, then it has arrived. most people date autumn as starting after the autumn equinox. to me autumn really starts when we move back the clocks at the end of oct. indian summers are quite often felt during sept. certainly this year it has been an indian summer. dont know how long we can call it an indian anything. some one is sure to say it is insulting to indians.
