What seasons will the Northern Hemisphere be having when it is not tilted away or tilted toward the sun?

This will happen in spring and autumn on days known as the equinoxes - roughly March 21 and September 22

IN ADDITION:

In the spring equinox on march 21 the earth tilts away from the sun. On September 23 the autumnal equinox, it tilts towards the sun. We are actually closer to the sun in the wintertime in the northern hemisphere.

Earth's orbit has nothing to do with seasons. The Earth's axis is tilted. When the Northern Hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, it is Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere. When the Southern Hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, it is Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer in the Northern Hemispere.

Because the Earth is tilted by about 23.5°. During the summer months, a hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, but at the same time it is winter in the other hemisphere, because it is tilted away from the sun. As Australia is in the southern hemisphere, its seasons are opposite to the seasons of countries in the northern hemisphere.

when the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun it is winter and the southern hemisphere is having summer.

earths axis is responsible for seasons because if its tilted toward the sun then it would be summer in the northern hemisphere and winter in the southern now if it was tilted away from the sun then it would be winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern hemisphere

Your question implies that you live in the northern hemisphere. Antarctica is in the southern hemisphere. Earth is tilted and as it orbits the sun, sometimes the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun and the southern hemisphere is tilted away from it. That makes the northern hemisphere warmer then, and it is summer there. It is winter in the southern hemisphere. When the southern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, then it is summer there and winter in the northern hemisphere.

Because our planet is tilted on its axis of rotation, we experience seasons as we orbit the Sun. When the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun it is summer there and the southern hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun, making it winter there. At the other half of the Eatrhs orbit, the southern hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun making it summer there and winter in the northern hemisphere.

when the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun, the southern hemisphere is away for this reason the seasons are reversed in the southern hemisphere.

When the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun, the southern hemisphere is tilted away from it, and when the southern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun the northern hemisphere is tilted away from it.

no the northern hemisphere tilted during the winter

Because the Earth is tilted on its axis, so when the Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun (Summer, in the North) the Southern Hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun (Winter, in the South) and vice versa.

When the the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun, it is summer in the northern hemisphere and winter in the southern hemisphere.

It is like this because the Earths axis is tilted which effects the seasons in the hemispheres.

The different seasons is caused by the tilting of the earth. For instance, when the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun, we have winter, while the southern hemisphere has its summer.

When the Northern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, the Southern hemisphere is tilted away and vice versa. It is this tilt that leads to the seasons. Since the Northern and Southern hemisphere cannot be tilted towards the sun at the same time, they can never have the same season at the same time.

Because of the tilted axis of the earth always in the same direction.

Australia is in the southern hemisphere, while Europe is in the northern hemisphere. When Europe is tilted towards the sun and is in summer, Australia is tilted away from the sun and is in winter.

When the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun, the southern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun.

As the Earth travels in its yearly orbit around the sun, in some seasons the axial tilt will cause the northern hemisphere to be tilted toward the sun while the southern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun, and in other seasons it is the opposite. Whichever hemisphere tilts toward the sun gets more sunlight and is therefore warmer.

the Southern Hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun, both the Southern and Northern Hemispheres are tilted toward the Sun, the Northern Hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun, and the Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun.

June, July and August. When the Northern Hemisphere is tilted towards the sun and when the Southern Hemisphere is tilted away from the sun.

when the earth is tilted toward the sun the northern hemisphere is experiencing

because the earth is tilted as it rotates the sun more or less of the surface is exposed in the hemisphere. So when it is winter in the northern hemisphere it is summer in the southern hemisphere. Because the southern hemisphere is tilted closer to the sun.

Because the Northern Hemisphere is tilted away from the sun.

Because - the Earth is tilted on its axis - by about 11 degrees. This means that, when the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, the southern hemisphere is tilted away. This - combined with the position of the sun in its orbit around the Sun - creates our seasons.

At both the winter and summer solstices, the Earth is tilted towards the sun. What differs is which hemisphere is tilted towards the sun. In the northern hemisphere at its winter solstice, the southern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, while the northern hemisphere it tilted away from the sun. In the southern hemisphere at its winter solstice, the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, while the southern hemisphere it tilted towards the sun. When it is the winter solstice in one hemisphere, it is the summer solstice is in the other hemisphere. For a winter solstice, that particular hemisphere is tilted away from the sun.
