Tilted Earth


Axis imaginary line about which an object rotates
Gravitational attraction force of attraction between all masses in the universe, especially the attraction of the Earth's mass for bodies near its surface
Rotational axis an imaginary line in which a three-dimensional object rotates around; the Earth spins on its axis
Prograde rotation the counterclockwise spin of a planet or moon when seen from above the planet's or moon's north pole
Retrograde rotation the clockwise spin of a planet or moon when seen from above the planet's or moon's north pole
Rotation the spinning motion of a body on its axis
Tilt of the Earth's Axis causes sunlight to hit different parts of the Earth more directly during the summer and less directly during the winter creating seasonal changes
Earth's rotation causes night and day because the rotation causes locations on Earth to be rotating towards the sun and away from the sun.
