Well…TODAY is the first day officially of the Fall season.
After the autumnal equinox, the days get shorter and the nights get longer. Traditionally it signified when the farmers bought in the harvest, which perhaps explains why the full moon nearest the equinox is often called the harvest moon.
This week, the days feel like Fall. Warm during the day and cool nights. Yesterday the most interesting phenomena appeared in the sky and lasted a few hours. A circle around the sun. Of course me being curious, I googled it!
Also known as a 22 degree halo or a sun halo, the ring is caused by sunlight passing through ice crystals in cirrus clouds within the Earth’s atmosphere, The crystals bend direct sunlight, projecting it elsewhere into the sky, and at a certain angle , 22 degrees — and a halo can be seen around the sun.
The days of summer are over!! And it’s getting cool/cold. So happy we spent yesterday morning at the beach…for breakfast.
