The Earth
Celestial sphere This is a moviie designed for use in a lecture on the celestial sphere. It starts with the celestial sphereŚ a bunch of stars on a spherical shell around the Earth, gridded by RA and Dec, ...
Daylight Hours Explorer 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
Daytime shadows
Earth and moon viewer You can view either a map of the Earth showing the day and night regions at this moment, or view the Earth from the Sun, the Moon, the night side of the Earth, above any location on the planet specified by latitude, longitude and altitude, from a satellite in Earth orbit, or above various cities around the globe
Earth and the sun Earth revolves around the sun once per year. The axis of rotation points in the same direction throughout the yearly trip, ...
Earth and the sun Earth-Sun Relations
Earth and the sun Earth and the sun animation
Earth and the sun (3D)
Earth's Atmosphere Interactive gather and compare data from different atmospheric levels
Earth's day and night Earth's day and night animation
Earth's gravity field here you can see the gravity field of the Earth as animation (rotating Earth as a sequence of 96 JPEG-images).

Earth viewer shows the planet earth as it should appear from space find Latitude Longitude with Google GMAP tools
Google maps maps, satellite view, street level view
Ideal atmosphere simplified simulation of the Earth's atmosphere
Interactive atmosphere model an interactive program in which you can investigate changes in the atmosphere
Latitude and longitude search engine a tip
Length of Day Length of Earth's Day and Night
Light Rays The angle the light rays from the sun make with the surface of the earth is called the angle of incidence. When there is a large angle of incidence, the light rays are spread out over a large area. The strength of the incoming beam is weakened as far as a small portion of the surface is concerned. When the light bears straight down on a surface, it isn't spread out at all and the surface feels the full intensity of the beam
Milankovitch cycle Orbital eccentricity
Milankovitch cycle Which Milankovitch fluctuation takes over 20000 years to complete a cycle? Orbital Fluctuations
Observing the Sky: Motion of the Earth - Seasons
Precession The gravitational pull of the Sun and the Moon tug on the Earth's equatorial bulge. As the Sun and the Moon move along the zodiac, each spends half their time south of the bulge. The gravitational pull of the Sun and the Moon thus tries to straighten up the Earth
Seasons Observe seasonal changes in the amount of sunlight reaching locations on Earth
Seasons find out why we have summers and winters
Seasons This animation shows the earth orbiting the sun and shows the location in its orbit, and dates for the various seasons. In addition, it shows the declination of the sun throughout the year, Educypedia
Seasons applet (scroll down)
Sun & earth applet sunshine applet, this interactive applet displays the position of the sun on horizon for any date, time and location, and on a world map with day and night regions. The times of sunrise and sunset, the declination, the Greenwich hour angle of the sun and the equation of time are computed
Sun Motions Demonstrator Models the motions of the sun in the sky using a horizon diagram, demonstrating daily and seasonal changes in the sun's position
Sunshine Applet
Switzerland from Space
The seasons
Tidal Bulge Simulation Shows how the sun, moon, and earth's rotation combine to create tides
Tidal forces Global picture of tidal forces and the force at a fixed point
Tidal forces Time variations of tidal forces at different fixed points
Tidal forces Rotating tidal forces as mutually orthogonal oscillating forces

View of Mars from the Earth The Heliocentric and Geocentric Models
View the Moon from the Earth
Visible solar system view the solar system from space and Earth
World's Horizon view the horizon from anywhere on Earth, at any time
Your sky produces sky maps for a given time/date for a given location on the Earth's surface, latitude longitude, horizon views
