Fall Equinox 2021

Moon Phase: Waning Crescent • Visible: 97,2%↑ • Age: 16,3 days • Moon Distance: 384,400 km

This is a composition from last night’s Harvest Moon and ICM, for this equinox.

The time of the year when the Sun shines directly on the Equator and the length of day and night is almost equal, marking the first day of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere.

Happy Autumn!

  1. Gorgeous composition as always. As a fellow autumn lover, I was shocked to hear someone tell me recently he doesn’t enjoy this season, because winter is right around the corner! Let’s enjoy the lovely transition, dear friend! 🙂

  2. What a spectacular shot, Marina! I love the fall season, but unfortunately, we’re still having temps in the 90s. But Happy Fall to you, my friend. 🍂🍁🍂🍁💛

  3. Goodness Marina – you brought the moon down to earth for a closer look. I think you have Aega is your blood!
    And last night even here the moon did not hide behind clouds and instead lit up my garden

  4. A gorgeous shot. Happy autumn equinox! Another step towards winter, a chance to stop and think and make plans for winter and of course the spring next year. 💐💐💖🙋‍♂️

  5. Autumnal greetings, dear 🐓!

    You appear to have trapped the ochre selenic orb in a sinuous net of icm filaments. Perhaps in vain, though, for its waning form will surely slip through…
