How does the Sun's rays hitting the Earth affect the seasons?

  • Science - , Monday, October 22, 2007 at 9:14pm

    Summer is warmer than winter (in each hemisphere) because the Sun's rays hit the Earth at a more direct angle during summer than during winter and also because the days are much longer than the nights during the summer. During the winter, the Sun's rays hit the Earth at an extreme angle, and the days are very short. These effects are due to the tilt of the Earth's axis.
