Equinox and Solstice data from the U.S. Naval Observatory, Washington DC. Cross-Quarter moments are interpolated as the midway points between the Solstices and Equinoxes measured in degrees along the ecliptic. Former NASA scientist Rollin Gillespie applied this spatial method. Kepler's Third Law of planetary motion says for each elliptical orbit the Earth completes, it's either speeding-up or slowing-down in its yearly rhythm. * Southern Hemisphere seasons oppose seasons north of the Equator.
