    For a given latitude, it centers around the time the Sun is near the
    declination of the operative geos, ie the Clarke belt.
    So the period soon starts for the observers far south. Duration ~2 weeks.
    You're right about autumn - of course timing is reversed then.
    Google 'flaring geosats' or 'geoflare season...
