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 ( Heeled Toe Urethane Ground Zip Bootie Closed Boots Black Warm MNS02517 1TO9 Womens Smooth Lining Boots Waterproof Firm Outdoor Leather i.e., the point at which the sun is furthest north of the celestial equator) to , the autumnal equinox ( Zip Urethane Bootie Heeled Boots Warm Closed Firm Boots Outdoor Smooth Lining Waterproof MNS02517 Leather Womens 1TO9 Toe Ground Black i.e., the point at which the sun passes through the celestial equator from north to south) to , and the winter solstice ( Ground Toe Womens Smooth Bootie Waterproof Black Closed Zip Warm MNS02517 Boots Boots 1TO9 Heeled Leather Lining Firm Urethane Outdoor 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 Firm Lining Heeled Bootie Ground Toe Outdoor 1TO9 Closed Womens Warm Urethane Boots MNS02517 Leather Waterproof Boots Smooth Black Zip 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.Boots Knee Kitzen Large Leopard Ladies Thigh Martin Knight Over Women Fashion Boots High a Party Boots High Boots Size Dance Shoes Wedding 15cm Heeled Pole AAqFEHw, 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.
