It has truly been feeling like fall over the last few mornings! Bring on the pumpkin spice, sweaters, and uggs! Astronomical Fall officially begins this Saturday at 2:50 AM! This is otherwise known as the Autumnal Equinox.

Firstly, the seasons are caused by the tilt of Earth's axis at 23.5 degrees. When the Autumnal Equinox occurs, Earth's axis being tilted neither toward nor away from the sun. During this time, the sun will be shining directly overhead of the equator at noon.
