Ketchikan - The soft autumn-like colors of the early morning light in Ketchikan Thursday are fitting to the equinox which is marked today.

On the autumnal equinox (Sept. 22, 2005, 6:23 P.M. EDT), the sun appears to cross the celestial equator, from north to south; this marks the beginning of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.

Every place on earth experiences 12-hours of daylight and 12-hours of night twice a year on the Spring and Fall Equinox.
