The autumn season starts in Azerbaijan today at 05:03 Baku time.
Autumn begins today in the Northern Hemisphere with the equinox. At this time, day and night become equal. The sun moves along the ecliptic and passes from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere, and from that moment the autumn season begins in the northern hemisphere.

At this time, the rotational axis of the Earth will make the greatest angle with the direction of the Sun. The sun becomes at a minimum height (26⁰.2) from the horizon. On that day, there will be the shortest Day and the longest Night. The length of the day will be 9 hours. 17 min. 22 sec., and the length of the night will be 14 hours, 42 min. 38 sec.
