Why does the sun rise at different horizons during winter versus summer?

In: Other

Because the Earth spins on a slightly tilted axis. That tilt leans the same direction no matter which side of the sun it’s on.

So during the summer, your hemisphere is tilted toward the sun, and in the winter, it’s tilted away from the sun. (Actually, this tilt is what _causes_ the seasons).
