    Often students who believe that the seasons are caused by earth’s distance to the sun think that earth orbits the sun in an elongated elliptical path and that this is what causes earth’s distance from the sun to vary enough to cause the seasons. In fact, earth’s orbit, while elliptical, is nearly a perfect circle.
