Equinox at the Park

Marilyn Golden

The 2022 Autumn Equinox gathering will take place Thursday Sept. 22 from 6:15 to 7:15 pm at the Chavez-Huerta Solar Calendar on the west ridge of the park, Santiago Casal, founder and curator of the calendar, has announced.

The equinox is the day when the diminishing daylight time exactly balances the growing time of darkness. It lies halfway between the summer and the winter solstices.

Join David Cooper for the annual Autumn Equinox gathering at the Cesar Chavez/Dolores Huerta Solar Calendar. Cooper will explain how the calendar works and do a session to enable people to have a sense of the sheer scale of the solar system and the galaxy with an exercise called “If the earth were the size of a peppercorn…” Each of these gatherings connect people to the teachings of Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta.

In addition, this year’s gathering is also a memorial of the life and legacy of the extraordinary disability rights activist Marilyn Golden who died on the autumn equinox last year and was a regular at these equinox/solstice gatherings.
