Our daytime hours began to decline at the summer solstice back in June, but the onset of Autumn and the fall equinox really makes us take notice that the hours of daylight are rapidly declining each day. In fact, from the fall equinox on, the night-sky time will last longer than the daylight time until the next vernal equinox. We’ll keep gaining dark sky viewing time until the winter solstice on December 21st.
Don’t let these shorter days and cooler temperatures spoil your outdoor living fun. Some of the best times are yet to be had this fall as we gather outdoors with family and friends. There is an inherent desire to gather even more outdoors as we regroup and reconnect after the Covid pandemic. Social distancing and outdoor gatherings have become the norm in our neighborhoods and communities.
“It’s the first day of autumn! A time of hot chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves!”
-Winnie The Pooh, Pooh’s Grand Adventure
