More days of full sunshine during the months of August and September, along with with temperatures above 50 degrees F. days and below 40 degrees F. (but above freezing) nights, right before and during the three-week change period will result in the most brilliant color formation of leaves during autumn.

The movement of the earth around the sun as well as the tilt of the earth causes Autumn and the rest of the seasons. In Autumn (Fall, in the US) that part of the earth is beginning to move away from directly facing the sun.

In Autumn the leaves fall of trees which causes you to rake them quite frequently.
