It’s almost time to dig out those Halloween decorations and extra blankets. The official start of the fall season of 2021 is on the way. This year, autumn begins on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021, in the United States and elsewhere in the northern hemisphere, because that’s the date the autumn equinox arrives as our weather transitions from summer to fall. (On the southern side of the globe, the seasons are moving from winter to spring.)
The autumnal equinox is upon us: On Wednesday, September 22, the Northern and Southern hemispheres will experience an equal amount of daylight. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of astronomical fall, with daylight hours continuing to shorten until the winter solstice in December. For those south of the equator, it’s the beginning of spring. This week’s full moon — the closest to the fall equinox, and this year the last full moon of summer — occurs on Tuesday and is known as the harvest moon.
