Where Is The Earth During Summer?
Many people believe that the temperature changes because the Earth is closer to the sun in summer and farther from the sun in winter. In fact, the Earth is farthest from the sun in July and is closest to the sun in January! During the summer, the sun’s rays hit the Earth at a steep angle
The Sun warms our planet, and with the Moon, creates the tides. The Moon orbits the Earth and in turn, the Earth orbits the Sun. We see the Universe from a platform that is both rotating on its axis, and traveling in an elliptical orbit around the Sun
Our solar system includes the Sun, nine planets and their Moons, comets and asteroids. ... As the Earth orbits the Sun, the Moon orbits the Earth. The Moon's orbit lasts 27 1/2 days, but because the Earth keeps moving, it takes the Moon two extra days, 29 1/2, to come back to the same place in our sky
The Moon moves around the Earth in a movement called revolution. This is very similar to Earth's revolution around the Sun. The path the Moon takes to go all the way around the Earth is called its orbit
This is called an annular eclipse, which leaves a ring of the sun's light still visible from around the moon. This alignment usually occurs every year or two, but is only visible from a small area on Earth
