Scope on the Skies: Changing of the Seasons
Riddle, Bob
Science Scope, v34 n7 p88-91 Mar 2011
Learn the astronomy behind the changing of the seasons. Students know that we mark the change of seasons with the position of the Sun over certain parts of the Earth. The specific time and date for the change of seasons is determined by the position of the Sun, not above the horizon necessarily, nor geographically, but rather where the Sun is using astronomical coordinates. (Contains 2 figures and 5 resources.)
