The lengthy days of summer are way behind us, and from here on, each day will be shorter than the one before it. It is now autumn, the season of transition, when the leaves on the trees are changing to magnificent hues, signaling the time to pull out your most comfortable and cozy coat as well as that TV show that you enjoy watching so much while sipping tea.

People who live in the northern hemisphere, for example, have longer days and shorter nights in the summer, and the reverse occurs in the winter. People who live in the southern hemisphere, on the other hand, have longer days and shorter nights in the summer, and the contrary occurs in the winter. So, autumn bringing shorter and darker days is, well, not surprising at all!
The tilt of the Earth’s axis during autumn causes the northern half to lean away from the sun somewhat while the southern half tilts slightly more toward the sun.
