The autumnal equinox actually arrived in New Brunswick at 11:29-pm Atlantic time last night so this is the first full day of fall.

The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night.”

The Sun begins crossing the celestial equator heading southward.

From here on out, the temperatures begin to drop and the days start to get shorter than the nights.
