    Many people believe that the Earth is close to the Sun in summer which is why it is so hot. And, similarly, they think that the Earth is too far away from the Sun in winter.

    While this idea is plausible, it is wrong.

    Of course, the earth’s orbit is not perfect. A small side of the lop. During the middle of the year, the Earth is closer to the Sun than at other times. However, in the Northern Hemisphere, we have a winter when the Earth is very close to the Sun and summer is very far away! Compared to the distance from the Sun, this change in Earth’s orbit around the earth throughout the year does not make much difference to our climate.

    There is a different reason for the seasons of the world.

    The Earth’s axis is a pole of thought that passes through the center of the Earth from “up” to “down.” The earth revolves around this pole, making one complete turn each day. That is why we have day and night, and why all parts of the world get some of them.

    The earth has seasons because its axis does not stand upright.
