Effects of revolution and rotation
The movement of revolving and rotating helps us to know the time. The earth experiences the various seasons. The path of earth that is closest to the sun has summer. In Nigeria, this is called rainy season and when that part is farthest from the sun, it will be winter. This is called dry season.
Solar eclipse: when the moon comes in between the earth and the sun, the sun is hidden from the earth. The shadow of the moon falls on earth, so it blocks the sun’s rays and we have solar eclipse.
