24 Solar Terms -- Autumn Equinox

Autumn Equinox, or “Qiufen” in Chinese, is the 16th of the 24 solar terms. It usually arrives around September 22-24. During this period, autumn colors can be seen in many parts of China. Qiufen is the midpoint of autumn. From here on, days will be shorter and nights will be longer in the Northern Hemisphere.
