In 2011 the northern hemisphere’s autumn equinox falls on September 23, at 9:05 Universal Time.

An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth\’s axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth\’s equator.

…The fastest sunsets (and sunrises) occur at or near the equinoxes. What’s more, the slowest sunsets (and sunrises) occur at or near the solstices.
