Everyday we experienced a turnaround day and night and often we just live our

activities without ever wanted to know how to process it. turnaround time for men is part of
the journey of human life on Earth.But how do day and night happen? Simply put we would
probably reply, noon occurs when the sun rises and the night occurs when the sun went into
But what causes this?
Rotation of the Earth!
Earth's rotation on its axis causes the day and night. How can? Our earth is one planet
around the Sun, and he also circled himself. Earth takes 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds
to complete rotation on its axis, and this is what is known as 1 day for humans.
During the 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds Earth rotates around its axis, there are
times when most of the face of the Earth facing the sun and this is the area that is
experiencing daytime. And there are other face that does not facing the sun is experiencing
For some people, it might be thought that the sun appears to move across the sky so it
rises in the east and sets in the west. In fact this is caused by the rotation of the Earth. The
sun was rising in the East as the Earth moves toward the east and toward the west when the
sun was setting.
But there are interesting !. For those of us who live on the Earth's equator, the length
of day and night can be regarded almost as the average of 12 hours. And various locations
on the earth also "experienced" Average - The average of the sunlit 12 hours per day.
However, the length of daylight experienced in certain locations at certain times of the year
is actually different. There are times when a location on the north / south experienced a day
/ night longer.
It caused by the slope of the Earth's axis 23,5º. We know that the Earth rotates on its
axis and rotation that causes day and night. However, the Earth's axis or axes is proved to
have a slope 23,5º. The tilt angle is calculated from the intersection of the Earth's equatorial
plane and the orbital plane of the Earth to the Sun. The slope of the axis of the Earth is also
an influence on the Earth's seasons and leads to changes in seasons (summer, winter, fall
and spring), this is also give effect to the long for of day or night in a place, because there
will be times when one part of the 23,5º earth closer to the sun or further away from the
Sun during the Earth around the Sun.
Day and night occur due to the earths rotation. As the earth turns on its axis, whatever
part of the earth that is away from the sun will be in night, and whatever part of the earth is
facing toward the sun is in day. If you have ever watched a sunrise, the sun isn't really rising,
the earth is turning.
