Fall equinox is another name for the equinox also known as autumnal equinox and September equinox. An equinox is the moment in time (not a day-long event) when the Sun stands directly above the equator and day and night are of approximately equal length. For the Northern Hemisphere, the fall equinox is the moment when summer ends and fall (autumn) begins, while for the Southern Hemisphere it is the moment when winter ends and spring begins.
