    I checked the archives over the past few years for a discussions of
    equinox. A thread did appear between 3 September 2011 and 11 September
    2011. Subject: "When is the Autumnal Equinox?" Thank God! I wondered if
    eight years (since Herbert's posting) had slipped away that fast.
    
    I'm afraid I glossed over the exchange, as in 2011 I hit the apex of
    family issues and could not pay the attention to NavList I would have
    wished. At my age time does indeed fly--even if you are not having fun!
