The Creation of Seasons: Unveiling the Influence of Earth’s Orbit and Rotation

The Sun’s light on Earth varies throughout the year, creating different seasons. In this video, watch the Earth orbit the Sun, spinning like a tilted top. This rotation alters the angle of sunlight, leading to the diverse seasons we experience. Observe how sunlight at different times of the year impacts the productivity of life on land and in the oceans.
