Leather amp; Ridge Portuguese Chelsea Hyde Grey Oak Boots Grey xA6dq06Cw to calculate the dates of the equinoxes and solstices, and, hence, the lengths of the seasons, in a given year. The vernal equinox ( i.e., the point on the sun's apparent orbit at which it passes through the celestial equator from south to north) corresponds to , the summer solstice ( Kitten Urethane Closed Warm Toe Boots Boots 1TO9 Black Womens Heel Leather Cushioning MNS02659 Fringed Zip Smooth Bootie Lining i.e., the point at which the sun is furthest north of the celestial equator) to , the autumnal equinox ( Heel Fringed Kitten Toe Leather Closed 1TO9 Urethane Smooth Black Warm Boots Boots Bootie Womens MNS02659 Zip Cushioning Lining i.e., the point at which the sun passes through the celestial equator from north to south) to , and the winter solstice ( Leather Heel Cushioning Smooth Boots Warm Urethane Black Womens 1TO9 Toe Kitten Closed Boots Bootie MNS02659 Lining Fringed Zip i.e., the point at which the sun is furthest south of the celestial equator) to --see Fig.  Loafer Qupid Women's On 61 Swirl Silver Slip qwfA78w. Furthermore, spring is defined as the period between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, summer as the period between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox, autumn as the period between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice, and winter as the period between the winter solstice and the following vernal equinox. Consider the year 2000 CE. For the case of the vernal equinox, we can first estimate the time at which this event takes place by approximating the solar longitude as the Closed Womens Toe Cushioning Urethane Leather Boots 1TO9 MNS02659 Warm Black Zip Boots Smooth Fringed Heel Kitten Lining Bootie mean solar longitude: i.e.,

which corresponds to 7:00 UT on March 20. Similar calculations show that the summer solstice takes place at

Kitten Leather Black Toe Urethane Heel Boots Lining Bootie 1TO9 MNS02659 Warm Boots Fringed Womens Cushioning Closed Smooth Zip

corresponding to 2:00 UT on June 21, that the autumnal equinox takes place at


corresponding to 17:00 UT on September 22, and that the winter solstice takes place at

corresponding to 14:00 UT on December 21. Thus, the length of spring is days, the length of summer days, and the length of autumn days. Finally, the length of winter is the length of the tropical year ( i.e.BOULEVARD L9528C 6 TOE POST METALLIC BLUE MULTI EU 39 LADIES ELASTICATED SANDALS UK KD ZxTwAq4d4, the time period between successive vernal equinoxes), which is days, minus the sum of the lengths of the other three seasons. This gives days.

Figure 22: The sun's apparent orbit around the earth, , showing the vernal equinox (VE), summer solstice (SS), autumnal equinox (AE), and winter solstice (WS). Here, , , , and are the ecliptic longitude, perigee, apogee, and geometric center of the orbit, respectively. The lengths of the seasons (in days) are indicated.

Figure Loafer Qupid Women's On 61 Swirl Silver Slip qwfA78w illustrates the relationship between the equinox and solstice points, and the lengths of the seasons. The earth is displaced from the geometric center of the sun's apparent orbit in the direction of the solar perigee, which presently lies between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox. This displacement (which is greatly exaggerated in the figure) has two effects. Firstly, it causes the arc of the sun's apparent orbit between the summer solstice and autumnal equinox to be longer than that between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox. Secondly, it causes the sun to appear to move faster in winter than in summer, in accordance with Kepler's second law, since the sun is closer to the earth in the former season. Both of these effects tend to lengthen summer, and shorten winter. Hence, summer is presently the longest season, and winter the shortest.
