On what day of the week did 9/11 happen?

(I think it was a Tuesday, and I can remember getting Friday off work as a national day of mourning).

1) June 21st....24hrs.... north pole
2) maybe Dec 21st as a second option in southern hemisphere
3) trick question... Everyday is 24hrs or Oct when clocks go back you might get a 25hr day?
