What Causes the Four Seasons on Earth?


It all has to do with the tilt of the earth and its position during the year. It takes one year for the earth to orbit the sun. Because of the tilt of the earth, certain places will experience more direct sunlight than the other. During the summer, the tilt of the earth faces more towards the sun which makes the months warmer. This is the opposite during the winter months when the tilt is further away from the sun. Spring and Fall are more transition seasons.
