Earth revolves around the sun in 365 days. Orbit in which earth revolves around is in an ellipse shape. So, sometimes earth goes near and sometimes far to the sun. When the earth moves nearer to the sun-earth becomes hotter and when the earth moves farther to the sun-earth becomes cooler. Due to this phenomena, earth experiences the different season. There are four seasons. They are:

  1. Summer: On December 21st, sun rays directly lie in the tropic of Capricorn. So, it is the shortest day and longest night. On those days northern hemisphere experiences, coldness and southern hemisphere experience hotness. On those days northern hemisphere experiences winter season whereas southern hemisphere experiences summer season.

  2. Winter: On June 21st, the rays of the sun lies in the tropic of cancer. So, it is the shortest night and longest day. Northern hemisphere faces nearer towards the sun. So northern hemisphere experiences the longer day and shorter nights. On these days, northern hemisphere experiences hotness and southern hemisphere experience coldness. On those days, the northern hemisphere experiences summer season whereas southern hemisphere experiences a winter season.

  3. Autumn: On March 21st, the rays of the sun again lie on the equator. Day and night have a same interval of time. So, there will be no extreme hotness or coldness. On those days northern hemisphere experiences, spring season whereas southern hemisphere experiences the autumn season.

  4. Spring: On September 23rd, the rays of the sun exactly lie on the equator. That day both hemisphere experiences equal interval of day and night. So, there will be no extreme hotness or coldness. On those days, northern hemisphere experiences autumn season whereas southern hemisphere experiences spring season.:
