Fall/Spring 2007

Today the sun reaches the equator 9:51 GMT and continues on its southernly journey to the Tropic of Capricorn. The sun does not actually move though; the earth is titling to that the southern hemisphere is pointing towards the sun.

This middle time in between is known as fall or autumn in the northern hemisphere and spring in the southern hemisphere. A little bit of trivia for all those interested is that the earth is getting closer to the sun; the tilt matters that much.
