PHOTOS: See you later, summer

Did you suddenly start craving a pumpkin spice latte Friday afternoon?

The autumn equinox happened at 1:02 p.m., officially moving out of summer and into fall.

The equinox happens when the sun passes over the equator, marking first day of autumn.

To bid farewell, readers sent in their favourite memories from summer 2017:
