Asked in Planet Mars
Does the planet Mars have seasons?

Because the axis of Mars is tilted by 25.19 degrees, it does
indeed have seasons similar to those of the Earth. When it is
summer in the Martian northern hemisphere, it is winter in the
southern hemisphere, and vice versa. There is one cycle of seasons
- winter, spring, summer, and fall - every year, just like it is on
Earth. (Actually, the seasonal cycle on Mars is 668.5921 Martian
days, slightly longer than the Martian year. This is because the
axis of Mars wobbles slightly as the planet turns.
