The Autumnal Equinox, also known as the first day of Fall is Wednesday (Sky & Telescope)! Fall officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere at 3:21 PM EDT (Sky & Telescope). This is when the Sun crosses the equator (Sky & Telescope). On the Fall Equinox, there is an equal amount of daylight and darkness at all latitudes. The tilt of the Earth is what gives us the seasons and on the equinoxes the Earth is tilted neither towards nor away from the Sun.
