It's always half and half.
You can argue about dusk and dawn, and the effect of the sky bending light, and the fact that the sun is larger than the Earth,
but it still comes out half & half.
at any given time, 50% of the earth is having day time while 50% of the earth is having night
about 50% or half ;)
At any given time, half (50%) of Earth is exposed to sunlight.
Night here on Earth happens when the Earth is in its own shadow.
When it is night on Mercury, it's colder than earth at any given time,but during the day,obviously,there is no comparison,the earth is much colder. BY THE WAY:this is coming from a 13 year old ;) but one that knows her sh*t.
we can prove that the earth rotates on its axis because we experience day time and night time/their is a change from day time to night time / night time to day time....
The rotation of the earth is causing day time and night time
the rotation of the earth is causing day time and night time
Earth is rotating on its axis and day and night occur as a result as the Earth spin. If the Sun is shining on a part of the Earth, they are having day time. If a part of the Earth is facing away from the Sun, there are having night time.
Earth is spherical in shape. Only half of it can face the sun at any given time. The side facing the sun experiences day. The other half of Earth, for which the sun is blocked from view, experiences night.
At any given time, approximately half the earth will be receiving varying amounts of sunlight (dawn to dusk) and half will be in varying stages of darkness (dusk to pre-dawn)
Day and night changes the earth the earth makes it happen by rotating the earth rotates and it turns day or nightexample: you live in Arizona and when its day time theres light then as the earth moves it turns night time.Day and night changes the earth the earth makes it happen by rotating the earth rotates and it turns day or nightexample: you live in Arizona and when its day time theres light then as the earth moves it turns night time.
The question doesn't really have meaning. It's alwaysnight time over roughly halfof the earth, and the exact half keeps changing. If you stay at one place on the earth,then it's night time for you for roughly half of the time. But if you look at the whole earthfrom somewhere else, there's never a time when you can look at it and say "Ah hah !Now it's night time on earth."
The rotation of the earth on it's axis moves any given point on the surface of the earth into sunlight (daytime) and then out of it (night time). The line separating light (day) from dark (night) is called the terminator. Before Arnold Schwarzeneggar made the movie...
About one half of the Earth is in daylight and the other half is in night. (It isn't quite exactly one half, because the atmosphere of the Earth bends sunlight around the curve of the Earth just a little, so there is a little more daylight than night.
Night time in Antarctica is the same as everywhere on earth. Some night times are sunlit and some day times are sunless.
The rotation of the Earth in its axis is the reason for the occurrence of day and night. The portion of Earth facing the Sun has day time while the portion hidden from the Sun has night time.
the earth rotates on its axis and when it has rotated so that it face away from the sun, we experience night time
The earth constantly spins on its axis. So,the other half of the earth is facing the sun , the other side is not. This is how we have night and day. It also matters on your time zone. The earth has 24 time zones. Some will be at night and some will be at day.
In space there is no fixed time like earth. As there is 24 hours sun not like earth with day and night.
The Earth spinning every 24 hours causes day and night. The Moon has nothing to do with causing day or night. In fact, the moon spends just as much time in the daytime sky every month as it does in the night-time sky.
Yes. Due to the rotation of the earth.
