By Abby Souza, Merced Sun-Star, Calif. Aug. 2--Ryan Vincent might be excited about his senior year at Golden Valley High School, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't mind putting it off for a few more weeks.

Autumnal Equinox -- In astronomy, is the equinox at the beginning of autumn in the northern hemisphere: the moment when the sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. The equinox occurs around September 22-24, varying slightly each year according to the 400 year cycle of leap years in the Gregorian Calendar.
