#1 #2 Question 18 0 / 1 point Which two things are most directly responsible for the cause the seasons on Earth as observed from your backyard? Explain your reasoning-do not use a view from space in your explanation. Base your response on what is observable from outdoors. One of the first things that is responsible for the seasons is the tilt of the earth relative to the sun. When the sun is lower in the sky it is cooler making it winter here. When the sun is higher in the sky and there is more day light it is summer. The other reason is that there is more direct sunlight in the summer making it hotter for vegetation to grow in the winter there is less direct sunlight and it is more spread out making it cooler in the winter.

See slides 14/15 in power point for this week. Remember we are not able to see "tilt" from our backyard... Go back to Motions of the Sun page Web Page for questions 19- 21: Vary the latitude between the equator and the North Pole. For a different view of the latitude observations place your cursor on the grass of the observer's backyard. Move the view by clicking and holding the mouse so that you see the edge on view of the backyard. Have it so the direction north is on the right side of the screen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
