22 or 23rd - Autumnal Equinox occurs depending on the location
Autumnal equinox, two moments in the year when the Sun is exactly above the
Equator and day and night are of equal length; also, either of the two points in the sky
where the ecliptic (the Sun’s annual pathway) and the celestial equator intersect. In the
Northern Hemisphere the autumnal equinox falls about September 22 or 23, as the
Sun crosses the celestial equator going south. In the Southern Hemisphere the equinox
occurs on March 20 or 21, when the Sun moves north across the celestial equator. https://www.britannica.com/science/autumnal-equinox
