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 ( Womens Ground Manmade Closure Pointed Manmade Closed Lining Boots Ground Boots No Hard Toe 1TO9 Firm High Heel Toe Urethane Ruched Brown Waterproof Warm MNS02320 i.e., the point at which the sun is furthest north of the celestial equator) to , the autumnal equinox ( High No Firm Manmade MNS02320 Brown Closure Toe Boots Ruched Urethane Ground Toe Pointed Warm 1TO9 Heel Waterproof Manmade Womens Closed Lining Ground Boots Hard i.e., the point at which the sun passes through the celestial equator from north to south) to , and the winter solstice ( Womens Closure Lining Toe Manmade Hard Manmade Warm Boots Brown Boots Heel Toe MNS02320 Pointed 1TO9 High Ruched Urethane Ground No Firm Ground Waterproof Closed 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 Boots Ground Brown Waterproof Ground Warm Toe Lining Toe 1TO9 Firm Closed Manmade Heel High Urethane MNS02320 Pointed Ruched Closure No Manmade Womens Boots Hard mean solar longitude: i.e.,

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.
