What Causes Seasons On Mars and How Are the Seasons On Mars Different From the Seasons On Earth?

Mars’s axis is tilted 25.2°, compared to Earth’s 23.5°, and Mars is tilted in the same direction.

This causes the planet Mars to have summer and winter, like Earth.

Martian seasons are longer because it takes Mars longer to orbit the Sun.

The seasonal temperatures on Mars stay much colder than on Earth because Mars is farther away from the Sun.

The great difference in Mars’s aphelion and perihelion cause seasons in the southern hemisphere to be much more extreme than seasons in the northern hemisphere.
