Watch an animation of the Earth rotating in space showing day and night, the equinox where locations on Earth experience close to equal hours of daytime and night-time (12 hours) and views of the Earth from above the North and South Poles. Turn an animated model of the Earth to explore how rotation is related to night and time of day. Notice that when the Sun shines on one side of the Earth, the other side is in darkness. Answer a series of questions by experimenting with the model. For example, when the Sun rises in New Zealand, what is the approximate time in Sydney? This learning object is one in a series of four objects.
