I'm just extremely curious when the exact start/end of solar seasons would be. Like so curious I want to keep up with it and announce it to people I know. But I don't know anything except the midpoints (obvious) and approximate boundaries.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

P.S.: I do think the meteorological definition is a better definition than the solar one (for most places anyways), but the solar one is the only one you can rely on worldwide and often seem to influence my subconscious behavioral patterns more than the biological, meteorological and roman seasons.

I don’t know if this is what you mean, but a few years ago I looked at tables of dates for specific locations that showed which days had the most and least daylight hours (and amounts in between) for that location.

Those dates do not always match the dates shown in calendars for, say, summer solstice.

I forget which website I found that on, though there is probably more than one. Might start searching on “date and time” sites, or astronomy-focused ones.

Would it be better to go by Nov. 6 to Feb. 5, Feb. 6 to May 5, May 6 to Aug. 5 and Aug. 6 to Nov. 5? I'm still having trouble figuring out, but I appreciate your attempts to help.

Those are Roman seasons, not solar ones. In the solar ones (which is what I'm looking for start/ends to), the respective solstice/equinox is the midpoint of that season.
