Today is an equinox day meaning that for us in the northern hemisphere summer is ending and fall begins, while for our counterparts south of the equator winter is ending and spring has sprung. And as the graphic shows there is an equal amount of daylight and night on our planet.
At the equator the sun is directly overhead and from that latitude you have no shadow, just a ‘blob-like’ shadow at your feet.
Regardless of your hemispheric preference get outside and cast a shadow!
