The Solar System Is Not Like You Think It Is
It Turns Out That the Solar System Is Not at All Like We Think It Is
Here’s one more myth that initially seems logical. If winter is colder than summer, that must mean Earth is further from its source of heat, right? However, the reality is actually the opposite: during the colder part of the year, our planet is actually five million kilometers closer to the Sun than in summer. How can this be?
It all comes down to the fact that in addition to orbitting the sun, the Earth also completes rotations around its own axis, which is why we have the change from night to day. The axis of the planet, which passes through the North and South Poles, is not exactly perpendicular to its orbit and the Sun’s rays which fall on it. In turn, for half of the year a large proportion of the Sun’s warmth falls on the southern hemisphere, while in the other half it falls on the northern one, which produces a change of seasons.
As is well known, summer in the southern hemisphere is warmer than it is in the north. This is the result of the fact that the Earth comes closest to the Sun in January — that is, when the southern part of the world is experiencing summer.
