At the equinox, night and day are almost the same length. Then, in the Northern Hemisphere the day will shorten and the night will grow longer, until the latter reaches its zenith at the December winter solstice.

In fact, in Athens the “equality” of day and night will occur a few days later, since on the day of the autumnal equinox itself, equal day-night occurs only in places directly on the Earth’s equator. In the other regions above or below the equator, this occurs a few days before or after the equinox. Thus, at Athens, which is about 38 degrees north of the equator, the equinox occurs after about four days.
