Fall/Autumn Begins Tonight at 9:03pm, Tomorrow Will Be the First Full Day of Fall

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The September Equinox that marks the beginning of fall is at 9:03 pm tonight. The days and nights are of almost equal length (the sun rises at 7:21 am this morning and sets at 7:30 pm tonight) and the sun will be reaching a lower and lower altitude in the sky, triggering the beginning of the process that will cause the leaves of deciduous trees to change colors and eventually fall to the ground.
