Was astronomy first studied by the Greeks

Astronomy, the study of the stars, has been around since the first cavemen looked up at night. We know more about what the Greeks did because they wrote about it, and their books survived.

In the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice is the December solstice, the vernal equinox is the March equinox, the summer solstice is the June solstice, and the autumnal equinox is the September equinox. In the southern hemisphere, the winter solstice is the June solstice, the vernal equinox is the September equinox, the summer solstice is the December solstice, and the autumnal equinox is the March equinox. The dates of the March equinox range from the 19th to the 22nd of March, the dates of the June solstice range from the 19th to the 23rd of June, the dates of the September equinox range from the 21st to the 24th of September, and the dates of the December solstice range from the 20th to the 23rd of December. Examples of the earliest season start times are in 2096, and examples of the latest season start times are in 1903.
