Because of the way the earth is positioned during the summer.
What do you mean?
Yeah, but why is summer so hot?
The earth is positioned differently during summer.
It gets more direct sunlight during summer.
Yep, and in winter the earth gets less direct light
And a solstice is when either day or night is the longest it will be all year. This also happens twice a year, at the beginning of summer and winter. The winter solstice has a longer night than day, it is the longest night all year, and the summer solstice has a longer day, longest it will be all year.
Wow I never knew that.
Wanna learn more about the seasons?
Sure, why not.
Well, an equinox is when there are 12 hours of day and 12 hours of the night, they happen at the beginning of fall and spring, the spring equinox is called the Vernal, and fall equinox is the autumnal
Well have you ever thought about what solstice and equinox mean?
I do now.
So the vernal is on March 21 and autumnal on September 21, summer solstice on June 21, and winter solstice on December 21. And the reason for the seasons is the position of the earth’s tilt. Wow, thats a lot to take in.
