Becuase the temperature stays the same throughout the year.

#Edit; The Equator has two winters per year. One when the Sun is over the Tropic of Capricorn and the other when the Sun is over the Tropic of Cancer. It also has two Summers per year. One when the Sun appears to be moving North and the Equator is transiting the Ecliptic and the other when the Sun is apparently moving South and again the Equator is transiting the Ecliptic. Sort of, HOT ... HOTTER ... HOT ... HOTTER.

because they are below the equator, and below the equator our summer is their winter, and vice versa.

If it is winter above the equator, it must be summer below the equator probably.

User Avatar

Summer occurs south of the equator at the same time winter occurs north of the equator and vice versa.

User Avatar

no, when it's winter on one side of equator it's summer on the other side.

The seasons south of the equator are opposite to the seasons north of the equator. When it is winter north of the equator it is summer south of the equator.

It is summer in New Zealand when it is winter here because New Zealand is south of the equator.

Assuming you are on the same side of the equator, they are essentially the same. North of the equator, summer in Kansas is the same as summer in Belgium. But summer in Kansas and Belgium is Winter in Australia (South of the equator).

Since Egypt is located north of the equator, and it is February as I type, it is winter in Egypt.

The Sun is farthest from the equator during the solstices or when summer and winter begin.

Locations on the equator are warm in temperature year round.

At the summer and winter solstice, the Sun is directly over the equator.

Gorillas live fairly Close to the equator. not much difference between summer and Winter there.

The sun's position will be on the far side of the equator for autumn and winter months. The sun will be on the close side of the equator for spring and summer

It's because we are north of the equator and they are south of the equator. It has to do with the position of the sun and earth.

The winter solstice (and the summer solstice) ocur for a very interesting reason. The sun 'moves' around the earth in a path that is very tilted to the earth's equator. When the sun is farthest on this path north of the equator, it is the summer solstice. And when it's farthesr south of the equator, it's the winter solstice. From the northern hemisphere, that is.

The difference would be greatest in the winter, because the temperature near the equator is relatively constant, but the Arctic is considerably colder in the winter.

User Avatar

Well, think about it. If its summer in the northern hemisphere, it should be winter in the southern hemisphere. If you don't believe me, then go ask a scientist.

The "temperate" zones north and south of the equator.

It all depends on where you are on the planet in relation to the equator. If you are in the northern hemisphere, it is winter. If you are in the southern hemisphere, it is summer. For instance if you are in Canada January is in the winter, if you live in Australia it is summer.

The Earth rotates on it's axis. In the summer, the Earth is tilted towards the sun. In the winter, the Earth is titled away from the sun. On the Earth, the northern regions (above the equator) have winter, while the southern regions (below the equator) have summer. Then, the opposite becomes true. The southern regions have winter, while the norther regions have summer. The distance nearer and farther from the sun makes no difference as far as the Earth's summer and winter is concerned.

Its either of the two times in the year(winter or summer) that the sun is furthest from the celestial equator.

User Avatar

The seasons are opposite. When it is winter in the north, it is summer in the south, etc.
