It’s about time

Today is the theoretical  equinox; the angle of the earth to the sun is such that at most latitudes we will experience a day divided nearly equally between daylight and night time. It’s about time, In the northern half of our planet the daylight will get shorter for three months as the year progresses and we will see the sunshine less and feel fewer of its warmth on our faces.

In fact the actual equinox this year occurs on 23 September,  later than usual.

These celestial forces continue to operate regardless of what we do on earth, and our wars, our politics and our referenda cannot change or affect them.
