  • 360 Days in 24 Solar Terms (节气)
    « on: March 28, 2016, 07:57:08 PM »
    Where did the other 5 days go to?

    There are 24 solar terms. Each term has 15 days.

    24*15 = 360 days.

    So what happened to 5 other days?

    There are 24 solar terms. Each term has 15 days.

    Not necessarily... Each term is 15 degrees of the perceived movement of the Sun, but the Earth is moving faster when closest to the Sun, so that 15 degrees aren't a fixed movement. And they won't always be 15 days.

    If you check the dates in Gregorian it's easy to see.

    Here is info from HK observatory:
    24 Solar Terms   Date   Time
    Moderate cold   6    January   06:08
    Severe cold   20    January   23:27
    Spring commences   4    February   17:46
    Spring showers   19    February   13:34
    Insects waken   5    March   11:44
    Vernal equinox   20    March   12:30
    Bright and clear   4    April   16:28
    Corn rain   19    April   23:29
    Summer commences   5    May   09:42
    Corn forms   20    May   22:36
    Corn on ear   5    June   13:49
    Summer solstice   21    June   06:34
    Moderate heat   7    July   00:03
    Great heat   22    July   17:30
    Autumn commences   7    August   09:53
    End of heat   23    August   00:38
    White dew   7    September   12:51
    Autumnal equinox   22    September   22:21
    Cold dew   8    October   04:33
    Frost   23    October   07:46
    Winter commences   7    November   07:48
    Light snow   22    November   05:22
    Heavy snow   7    December   00:41
    Winter solstice   21    December   18:44


    Easy to see not all are necessarily 15 days. Example:
    Moderate cold   6    January   06:08
    Severe cold   20    January   23:27
    20 - 6 = 14

    It's based on the hour the Sun crosses the border, so in this case getting in moderate cold so early at 6 am makes the whole term 14 days, because next crossing is late at night in Severe cold.

    Hi Owlbear, pardon me for asking this but where did you get the 24 season information in HK observatory website? Can you share the link? Thank you very much
