Rotation movement

The axis of rotation is tilted with respect to the plane of the orbit that describes the Earth around the sun.

The day, the night and the hours

The rotary motion produces a succession of day and night, as well as the time difference between some areas of the Earth.

As the Earth is spherical it is only illuminated on the face opposite to the sun. As it is turning on itself, the lighted face is not always the same. So the illuminated part (day) and the dark part (night) are constantly shifting.

Principal consequences of the rotation movement:

  • Day and the night
  • A uniform insolation of the Earth
