Why does it get hotter in the summer?

    The Earth is “tilted” in relation to the rays of the sun. In the summer, the Northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun, and receives more solar energy than it does in the winter, when it is tilted away from the sun.

    Simply put, it get’s hotter in summer because your area of the Earth is tilted more towards the sun and gets more light than it does in the winter. Since I’ve always found that it’s much easier to SEE this kind of thing than have it explained to you, these websites have decent visuals to help you understand how Earth’s tilt on its axis is the reason for the seasons.

    Hope that helps!
