There is a season - turn, turn, turn
Well, I learnt something today, and it is only 6:50 in the morning!
I always knew that America's seasons didn't change on the same date as us, but I'd never got around to looking it up. But, as I was reading Golly Blog Howdy, the first line said "Today at 3:23pm PDT, Autumn arrived." Holy crap, I thought, there is an exact time as well as date for the season to turn?? So, I googled it, as you do, on a Saturday morning when you really should be seeing if you can go back to bed and get more sleep. And I found the following:
|Vernal (Spring) Equinox||March 20||1233|
|Summer Solstice||June 21||06:46|
|Autumnal Equinox||September 22||22:23|
|Winter Solstice||December 21||18:35|
So, there you go, now that is precise.
Here, the seasons turn at the beginning of months, like so:
Spring: September 1st
Summer: December 1st
Autumn: March 1st
I guess I could add in times as well, but is always midnight.
And thus ends the lesson. :)
