Why are the seasons different in the northern and southern hemispheres?

The Earth is tilted on its axis, and depending on the time of the year, either the northern or southern hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun, while the other half must, of course, be tilted away.

In June, the Northern hemisphere tilts towards the sun. This makes the day longer and the Sun is higher in the sky, giving what sunlight hits the ground more intensity. This is summer.

At the same time, the Southern hemisphere is experiencing winter, with shorter days and the Sun lower in the sky, giving less intense sunlight.

When December comes, the situation is reversed, with winter in the Northern hemisphere and summer in the Southern.

What are the seasons in the southern hemisphere?

They are "opposite" of the northern hemisphere. When it is summer in the north, it is winter in the southern hemisphere. Therefore fall in the northern would be spring in the southern, winter in the N would be summer in the S, spring in the N would be fall in the south.

Seasons in the Southern Hemisphere:

  • Summer: December - March (northern winter)
  • Fall: March - June (northern spring)
  • Winter: June - September (northern summer)
  • Spring: September - December (northern fall)

Is earth farthest away from the sun when the northern hemisphere is in summer?

That is true. The orbit of the Earth around the sun is ellipitical, and the Earth is farthest from the sun on July 4th. This is slightly ironic, since that is when the northern hemisphere has the warmest weather. But the axial tilt has a greater effect than the variation in distance from the sun (which is only a minor variation).

Does the northern or southern hemisphere have more land?

The Northern Hemisphere has much more land than the southern. About 7/8 of the world's land area is in the Northern Hemisphere.

Even the Land Hemisphere (half of Earth's surface containing the maximum land area) is still slightly more than half water. Oceans cover 70% of Earth's surface.

Why does the nothern and southern hemispheres have different seasons at the same time?

Because the Earth tilts at 23.5°, meaning that sometimes the northern hemisphere is leaning towards the sun, giving it summer, while the southern hemisphere is leaning away from it, giving it winter. At other times the southern hemisphere is leaning towards the sun, giving it summer, while the northern hemisphere is leaning away from it, giving it winter.

What is the longest day of the year in the southern hemisphere?

December 20 or 21st.

While June 21or 22 is called the summer solstice and longest day in the Northern Hemisphere, it is called the winter solstice and shortest day in the Southern Hemisphere.

In December the situation is reversed, because the Earth is now tilted away from the earth (if we consider the North Pole to be at the top!). Consequently the Southern Hemisphere is nearer to the sun in December, and the season is called summer or summer time, with longer hours of sun than winter time, and with barbecues and bikinis on the beach on Christmas day.

The precise astronomical moment of summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere occurs around December 20/21, but December 21st is traditionally the day identified as the longest day.
