Leaves, sunset and water

Autumnal Equinox


On 23 September, the day and night will be of equal length.

The day marks the autumnal equinox when the sun is exactly above the Equator.

Autumn begins as the days get shorter and nights become longer.

Leaves change colour, birds migrate and on Jersey, our lilies will be blooming and you may even catch sight of eels.
