Offical start of Autumn

Postby Westmorland » Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:54 am

Yesterday was the feast of Michaelemass which is seen as the official start of Autum, which is my favourite season of the year.

Well, that's another view on the start of autumn.
We've now got;
Sept 1st which apparently the meteorologists have now decided it is,
The Autumn equinox which, this year, was on 22nd Sept
And now , the feast of Micheal mass.

I think i'll stick to the good old fashioned equinox.

I think we should let nature decide ... when the leaves turn and begin to fall, that's when Autumn has begun... the leaves are now turning so I suggest we're in Autumn.

Alot of universities use Michaelmas to desribe tthe first term, they d not call it the Autumn term but the Michaelmas term, which is actually the feast of Michael and the arc-angels when Michael defeated Lucifer in heaven

My sentiments exactly Moaner! I really love all the seasons, providing I can see a definite change in the weather from one to another. The last three or four years just haven't been that way.

The equinoxes and solstices have always been the start of new seasons as far as I'm concerned.

Well, there's another confusion. According to the clocks, British Summer starts in March and ends in October. That also means we have only two seasons - erm, the other being Greenwich Mean. :lol:

To make it easy to collect and analyse data, meteoroligists define the seasons as: Autumn = Sept 1st to Nov 31st. Winter = Dec 1st to Feb 28th/29th. Spring = March 1st to May 31st/ Summer = 1st June to August 31st.

However, since ancient times, we've used the position of the sun and stars to tell time and seasons. So in my book, Spring starts at the Vernal equinox around 21st March and Autumn starts at the Autumn equinox around 21st September, when day and night are the same length. Summer starts at the summer solstice, when day is longest around 21st June and Winter starts at the winter solstice, when day is shortest around 21st December.

Just to confuse matters, we also call the Summer Solstice, midsummers day and the Winter solstice, midwinters day. :roll:

Some years ago a friend of mine went to the Shetlands on a year,s photographic project. When asked what the weather was like he said that for 9 months they had rain, hail, sleet, snow, gales and low temperatures. Then 3 months winter.
