Daylight Hours Explorer
- The Daylight Hours Explorer is included on BrainBashers with full permission.
- This page shows the hours of daylight received during the year for an observer at a given latitude. This is an important factor contributing to the seasons.
- Slide the 'Latitude' slider across until the line is at the correct height on the globe for where you live.
- You can then slide the 'Day' slider to see how much daylight you get on any day of the year.
- You can also move the globe around.
- The further North or South you live, the more variation in the amount of sunlight you get.
- Someone living at the North Pole gets 6 months of daylight, followed by 6 months of night.
- Someone living at the Equator gets 12 hours of sunlight every day, and it goes dark much more quickly.
