Why is it winter in england but summer in australia?
Because England is in the Northern hemisphere and Australia is in the Southern hemisphere. The sun is now approaching its southernmost position in relation to the earth (Dec 22) so the southern temperatures warm up while northern temperatures get colder.
because its the other side of the world
because its hot there and cold here
Because the Earth is tilted at 24 degrees. So when it is summer in the north, it is winter in the south.,
Different hemispheres (sides) of the planet. The southern hemisphere is getting closer to the sun right now while the northern hemisphere is getting farther away, based on the way the earth is tilted. Their seasons are opposite each other.
Because England is above the equator and Australia is below - I think that Australia and the other southern countries get the sunshine now. Also, gravity plays a part in some things - for instant, when you flush the toilet, the water flows the OPPOSITE way in the southern hemisphere than up here!
Yeah..different hemispheres. England is located in the Northern Hemisphere whereas Australia in the Southern Hemisphere. You'll find it weird that when it is summer in England,it will be winter in Australia.
Its in a different hemisphere,but that doesn't seem to count for much the last few years.
Last week in Melbourne we froze and had snow thoughout the state.This week its 40c.?
The reason for the different seasons at opposite times of the year in the two hemispheres is that while the earth rotates about the sun, it also spins on its axis, which is tilted some 23.5 degrees towards the plane of its rotation. Because of this tilt, the Northern Hemisphere receives less direct sunlight (creating winter) while the Southern Hemisphere receives more direct sunlight (creating summer). As the Earth continues its orbit the hemisphere that is angled closest to the sun changes and the seasons are reversed.
England is in the northern hemisphere which has winter now and the southern hemisphere where Ausralia is has summer now. Hemispheres are divided north and south of the equator.
During winter in England the Northern hemisphere tilts away from the sun while the Southern hemisphere tilts towards the sun. The sun is therefore higher in the sky in the South than it is in the North making the amount of solar energy falling on a square metre of ground higher in the Southern hemisphere than the Northern.
6 months later the Earth is on the other side of the sun so the tilt now faces the other way giving the North the greater amount of energy per square metre. Try drawing a picture to help you to understand.
