The Autumn Equinox takes place this Friday, September 23, at 09:05 am (universal time), ie 10:05 am in mainland Portugal, according to the Lisbon Astronomical Observatory. 

This moment marks the beginning of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. 

This season continues until the next Winter Solstice, which takes place on December 22 at 05:30 am.

The Equinox is the instant when the Sun, in its apparent annual movement, cuts the celestial equator. 

The word of Latin origin means “night equal to day”, because in these dates day and night have equal duration.
