Today is the first day of Autumn. I am always a little sad that Summer has ended but also love the fall colors, pumpkin patch visits, hot soups and cozy clothing that happens during the season. Today we've entered into the zodiac sign of Libra which is the symbol of the balanced scales. The Autumn Equinox is also a balance of equal sun time and equal night time. We descend in daylight and after the Winter Solstice (the shortest daylight of the year), we start to have ascend into longer days of light. In a few days, we're about to have a harvest moon on the evening of September 27. This year it's a Supermoon and a rare total lunar eclipse. The last time a total lunar eclipse coincided with a Supermoon was in 1982 and it won’t happen again until 2033. The total eclipse will start at 10:11 p.m. EDT (7:11 p.m. PDT) Sunday evening and will last one hour and 12 minutes. It will be visible across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of West Asia and the eastern Pacific, NASA said. Hopefully we'll all have some clear skies to experience it!
As an homage to a long summer's end and trying to have one last bit of outdoor fun, I made this piece is called "Night Swimmers".
