September 22, 2012 marks the ending of summer or the beginning of fall, when the sun crosses over the Earths equator on its way south. An event in the Northern Hemisphere called the autumnal equinox.
The word “equinox” comes from the Latin words for “equal night” and refers to when day and night are most equal in length, which occurs just twice a year with the arrival of spring and fall.
The best meteor shower show of 2012 is scheduled to occur late this fall. The Geminids will reach maximum activity December 13th and December 14th. There also will be a new moon on December 13th, which means viewing conditions will be near perfect throughout both nights with an anticipated 75 fiery displays per hour.
