Why Are There Seasons?

Answer

Seasons are there because of the earth being tilted on its axis as it moves around the sun. During the different seasons that we have, the earth will lean towards the sun or away from the sun. These seasons are a reflection of how solar energy is distributed to the Earth based on its axis of rotation as well as its shape.

The seasons are caused by the tilt of the Earth's rotational axis away or toward the sun as it travels through its year-long path around the sun.
Seasons happen as a result of the tilt of the earth and how it revolves around the sun. When the earth's tilt is closest to the sun, these are the warmer months known as Spring and Summer. When it is away from the sun, these are the cooler months known as Fall and Winter.
There are different season on the earth because of the earth's axis or tilt. As it rotates and orbits around the sun, it gradually moves closer or farther away from the sun. Closer times are warmer seasons like spring and summer and farther away is when we have autumn and winter. You can find more information here: http://ksnn.larc.nasa.gov/k2/s_seasons.html
