The Autumnal Equinox is defined as the point in time the center of the Sun passes through the same plane as the Earth’s equator in the direction from North to South on or around September 21st or 22nd each year. This year that time was 10:49AM in my timezone last Saturday, September 22nd.
As if to herald Autumn’s coming and the end of Summer, a strong cold front pushed over the Finger Lakes region of New York state about five minutes before the Autumnal Equinox was to occur. Below is what it looked like at Lakefront Park in Geneva, New York.
Soon after the wind direction changed from South to North, temperature dropped and a cold rain began to fall. I metaphorically waved goodbye to Summer.
