Our day and night are of equal length today, as we find our selves between the longest and shortest days of the year.
The solstices and the equinoxes have been vital astronomical events for millennia, in cultures around the world.
Here in Longview, the fall equinox marks the start to planning our Solstice Lantern Walk in December. We're getting ready for our fourth one already!
Check out the event. Or volunteer. Or sponsor a planet.
Bring some light and cheer to the longest night of the year!
