Autumn arrived in New Brunswick at 11:21 AM (Atlantic Time) today.
The autumnal equinox occurs when the sun is directly overhead at the equator and days and nights are about equal in length.
The sun continues to move south of the equator and the amount of daylight decreases until the winter solstice (shortest day of the year) on 21 December.
The leaves are just starting to change colour in Greater Moncton.
Given the dry summer in much of the Maritimes, experts say the fall colours may not be as vibrant and the leaves could drop off earlier than usual.
