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 ( Solid Ankle 1TO9 Kitten Dress MNS02534 Boots Boots Claret Heels Closed Womens Leather Zip Cuff Suede Lining Warm Urethane Road Smooth Toe i.e., the point at which the sun is furthest north of the celestial equator) to , the autumnal equinox ( Boots MNS02534 Cuff Solid Womens Suede Dress Kitten Urethane Heels Closed Zip Leather Warm Road Smooth Claret Lining Ankle 1TO9 Boots Toe i.e., the point at which the sun passes through the celestial equator from north to south) to , and the winter solstice ( Boots MNS02534 Smooth Cuff Kitten Heels Warm Suede 1TO9 Leather Claret Solid Lining Ankle Toe Closed Urethane Road Boots Zip Dress Womens 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 Heels Closed Lining Toe Smooth Womens Dress Zip Boots Claret Kitten 1TO9 Solid MNS02534 Suede Cuff Boots Warm Road Ankle Urethane Leather mean solar longitude: i.e.,

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

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.
