If it looks like it will be a clear morning, I like to get up before dawn on the Equinox, and walk to the far end of Lincoln Park where there is a good view down East Capitol Street. Just like at Stonehenge, the sun rises directly down the middle. This Atumnal Equinox, however, I didn't quite make it that far, but I still got my shot by standing in the middle of East Capitol looking towards the park, with the US Capitol behind me. The sun obligingly made a nice showy halo coming through the trees. Then I had to dash, because it was already rush hour, and traffic waits for no one.
