I am planning to tour Classical Greece in 2019 I never meant to go back to Europe, but this looks like a good trip. Ancient Greece is the cradle of western civilization. I just got my third passport.
I talked to Cynthia Griffin at Globus Monograms. She said there is a direct flight to Athens from Philadelphia. The Greece Escape is $799 plus $200 for the single supplement. The single supplement is a ripoff, but it looks like I am headed for Greece. Cynthia has several tours scheduled for March, 2019.
As the Northern Hemisphere tilts away from the sun, the sun's arc appears lower in the sky. Rays hit us less directly, and the top half of the globe cools. All living things compensate for the reduced energy!
Earth's axis always points in the same direction as it orbits the sun. The sun's rays hit the earth broadside on the first day of fall and on the first day of spring.
The sun is out to our side, not overhead. We see this by lying on our backs with our heads pointing due north. The earth spins, turns & rotates from west to east as the sun appears to cross our sky. The sky is the result of our atmosphere scattering the sun's rays.
The earth tilts as it travels. On the first day of fall, we are in that part of our orbit where days and nights are equal. 3 more months, and we will be in that part of our orbit where the Northern Hemisphere tilts away from the sun.
The earth's tilt causes the seasons. That we are closest to the sun in January and fartherest from the sun in July helps to moderate the seasons. It makes for warmer winters and cooler summers.
Earth averages 93 million miles from the sun.
Earth orbits the sun 67,000 miles an hour.
Earth's orbit is 585 million miles.
Time - The earth rotates from west to east. That means the sun is high in Louisville and Nashville before it is high in Las Vegas. Time is adjusted so that when it is 12 noon in Nashville, it is 10am in Vegas. There are 3 hours difference in our time zones: Eastern, Central, Mountain & Pacific.
Astronomer Bob Berman compared the Earth rotating while revolving to patting our heads while rubbing our stomachs.
