axis of rotation - definition of axis of rotation in Encyclopedia (366 words)
Axial tilt is an astronomical term regarding the inclination angle of a planet's rotational axis in relation to its orbital plane.
A planet whose rotation axis was itself perpendicular to the orbital plane would have an axial tilt of 0° if it rotated in the same direction as its orbital motion, and 180° if it rotated the other way.
The axis is tilted in the same direction throughout a year; however, as the Earth orbits the Sun, the hemisphere tilted away from the Sun will gradually come to be tilted towards the Sun, and vice versa.
