Autumn equinox

Today, 23 September is the autumn equinox!

In Greece and generally in the northern hemisphere the autumn officially begins today, while in the southern hemisphere respectively spring begins. In equinox, around the world, nighttime and daytime are of almost equal length. Then, in the northern hemisphere, the days become shorter and the night becomes longer until nighttime reaches its peak during the winter solstice in December.
In Santorini most of the days of September remind us mainly of summer, rather than winter! These last days are the exception!
