Group T The Seasons

we get different seasons [winter,summer,spring and autumn]because the earth is tilted

when the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun the earth is in summer

when the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun the earth is in winter
because of the tilt of the earths axis in summer the sun moves higher in the sky than in winter that's why the days are longer in summer

seasons are the division of the year marked by changes in the weather and and hours of daylight. In the winter there are less hours off daylight
then in summer because when it is summer the sun is higher in the sky shown by the diagram above. Seasons are a result of the yearly obit of the earth
around the sun and the tilt off the earths axis. Regardless of the time of year the northern and southern hemispheres always experience opposite seasons
this is because in summer or winter the one side off the the planet is more exposed to the suns rays than the other half. This exposure changes as the earth
orbits the sun. For approximately half off the earths year the northern hemisphere will be tilted towards the sun [from around 20th of march to the 22nd September]
the other half of the year is when the southern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun. the effect of the axial tilt is observable from the day length and the height of the
sun at noon during the year.
