Seasons at the Poles

Lecture no. 2 from the course: National Geographic Polar Explorations

Seasons at the Poles

Taught by Professor Michael E. Wysession and 4 others | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

In the latitudes where most of us live, it’s easy to take the sun and its relationship with the Earth for granted. For us, the sun comes up and goes down reliably every day, yet the poles experience six months each of continuous night and constant day. What causes the seemingly strange behavior of the sun at the poles? What causes seasons? Find out in this lecture presented by astronomy professor Edward Murphy.
