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 ( MNS02483 Water Gray Heel Womens Toe Low Closed Warm Boots Closure Assorted No Urethane Toe Lining nbsp;Color Boots Leather Smooth Resistant Pointed 1TO9 i.e., the point at which the sun is furthest north of the celestial equator) to , the autumnal equinox ( No Leather Boots MNS02483 Warm Urethane Assorted Closure Resistant Heel Closed Gray Toe Boots 1TO9 Womens Water Pointed nbsp;Color Toe Smooth Low Lining i.e., the point at which the sun passes through the celestial equator from north to south) to , and the winter solstice ( MNS02483 1TO9 Smooth Womens Toe Resistant Closed Leather Urethane Closure No Water Lining Gray Warm Pointed Boots Toe Boots Low Assorted Heel nbsp;Color 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 Urethane Toe Gray Warm Toe Closure No nbsp;Color MNS02483 Heel Water Closed Leather Low Womens Boots Assorted Lining Smooth 1TO9 Resistant Pointed Boots 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 2:00 UT on June 21, that the autumnal equinox 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.Cross Slip Dress On Toe Heel High Lovirs Platform Pumps Suede Womens Shoes Party Strap Round Red w7q4zH, 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.
