Seasons of Planets
By: Cora Mcelroy
How long seasons last on different planets
Mercury has the most bizarre weather compared to what we have because mercury rotates three times a year so the seasons there are really short. But the seasons can be really long and neptune has seasons that last 40 years. There are several factors that affect the weather like the tilt of the planet's axis, temperature, conditions, whether, different places on the earth.
What the sun is made of and how it affects seasons
The sun is about 92,960,000 miles from the earth, but that is different on different planets because they are different distances from the sun. And the sun is basically a giant magnet made of plasma sending heat to the earth and other planets. And how the earth's axis affects how much heat we get in different places on the earth, also affecting how the seasons change.
