Happy first day of #autumn ! Today is the #Septemberequinox , meaning the days are noticeably shorter and the nights longer. Equinoxes occur when the Sun illuminates the Northern and Southern Hemispheres equally, so day and night are of roughly equal length. #autumnequinoxequinox 

Happy birthday to professor Stephen Hawking, who turns 75 today!
