Seasons

A season are the times when it's colder, or warmer then all of the other seasons. The seasons are caused by Earth's tilt and the Sun. When the Earth is tilted, not every hemisphere gets the same amount of sunlight.

Here, the Northern Hemisphere is getting winter, not much of the sun's energy will go there. The rest of the energy is mainly in the Southern Hemisphere, they are enjoying summer.

The season is always opposite from the Northern Hemisphere to the Southern Hemisphere.

There are 4 very special days during the year. They are the stolcises and the equalnoxes. During an stolcises, 3/4 of the day will either be day or night. A summer stolcise means longer days, while a winter stolcise will have longer nights. Equalnoxes however are days when the day and night are equal, 12 hours for day and 12 hours for night.
