Re: The Seasons

Nice page. Neat graphics. Particularly, the movement around the sun (at variable speeds) is well explained resulting in changing climates. Wonderful work, MathsIsFun! I remember having learnt that Sun is at one foci of the ellipse (Kepler's first law of motion). Does that need to be corrected?

Re: The Seasons

These new pages are great. Thumbs up!

I can't understand this sentence, perhaps one or two words are missing?

'It is nice to love every season, because each one has a special feeling which he would miss it was not there.'

Also, it may read easier if a 'The time' or 'The date' is added to the start of this sentence:

"when each season begins and ends is not the same everywhere!"
