  • It is the position of the Earth when the rays of the sun vertically  falls on the Tropic of cancer.
  • In this position the North pole is tilted towards the sun.
  • It receives more heat ,and for a longer period of time.As a result there is summer in Northern hemisphere.
  • The sun appears higher in the sky and more towards the north of the Horizon.
  • Days are longer than nights.

The winter solstice
  • It is the position of the earth when the sun's rays fall vertically on the tropical of Capricorn.

When it is tilted away from the Sun, it is winter in the northern hemisphere. In between we have autumn and spring. The day that the Earth's North Pole is tilted closest to the sun is called the summer solstice. This is the longest day (most daylight hours) of the year for people living in the northern hemisphere.
