秋分の日は日本の休日です。昼(明るい)と夜(暗い)の時間が12時間ずつで等しいから英語でequinoxと呼びます。太陽が天の赤道を渡る日です。冬には空の南半球にあります。九月は秋の月ですが、厳密にいうと秋分の日が秋の始まりです。あなたは今、秋だと感じていますか?今までの九月はどうでした?

The autumnal (fall) equinox is a holiday in Japan. It’s called the equinox because the day (light) and night (dark) are equal—both are twelve hours long. That means the sun crosses the celestial equator; in winter it will be in the southern half of the sky. September is a fall month, but the fall equinox is officially the beginning of fall. Does it feel like fall now to you? How about earlier in September?
