Why Are the Days Longer in the Summer?


The days are longer in the summer because the sun is at its northernmost position from the equator. The Earth is tilted as it moves around the sun, as the Earth reaches a particular point in its orbit about the sun, the northern hemisphere tilts towards the sun while the southern hemisphere tilts away from it. In summer, the Earth is tilted towards the sun hence; the northern hemisphere receives more sunlight than the southern.
