The first day of autumn occurs this year on September 22nd. Why? Is this an arbitrary date on your calendar, or does it mark a celestial event? And have you ever heard that eggs will only stand on their end during the equinox? In this talk, we’ll look at the reason for the seasons, and the origin of one of the most common equinox myths. We will also dispel that myth by balancing an egg right before your virtual eyes.
Friday, September 18, 2020 – 7:00 to 7:30 pm.
Jeffrey Miller is an astronomer at St. Lawrence University and a member of the Adirondack Sky Center board.
