People often misconstrue the reasons for the seasons on Earth, thinking that when the Earth is at aphelion, farthest away from the Sun, that it is winter. However, the real cause of the seasons is the tilt of the Earth on its axis as it orbits the Sun. As the planet travels around the sun the hemisphere that is tilted towards it experiences summer; the one tilted away undergoes winter. Sunlight traveling directly to the Earth's surface as that hemisphere is tilted towards it accounts for the warmer temps. Indeed, Earth is at perihelion, closest to the star, in January, right in the middle of the northern hemisphere's coldest season.
