Altering everything to all

I had been searching more on our axial tilt (obliquity) and why it affects our temperatures much more than the Earth’s elliptical – oval rather than round – orbit; it’s because its not as oval as it sometimes looks in images. Good ol’ time and date website gave best explanations in the end!
It included this great image showing clearly the tilt and distance:
Confusingly, it has the Earth on different sides of the sun in this other image, but I guess it doesn’t matter, as the sun doesn’t have north and south poles!?
Is it worth proceeding further? Are you interested in more shenels?
To be-lie-ve agnostically

most likely current option
could be proved wrong
sometime in the future.
Believe is a good example of a perfect (same number of letters each side of inside word) shenel (word with another inside, like a nut’s shell and kernel I invented, without naming it after myself) with related words on outside and inside.
For more pre-shenel wordplay:
Over a month has now passed since my December 23rd post looking at where in the solar system we are on our planet Earth. Then, Earth looked at the top of the ‘clock face’. Now we’ve travelled around to 11 o’ clock, as we’re going anti-clockwise:
If Earth’s axis was more like a carousel swung from the sun the north would always be pointed in and the south out, as heads are inside and legs out, so north would always be in summer and the south in winter, but it is more like a toffee apple on a rigid stick, staying in the same position as it orbits the sun, meaning the south is pointed towards the sun on one side, and the north on the other:

Sunrise and Sunset Times
As we reach the end of January, sunrise has now dropped below the 8am mark in Leeds, mistYmuse (#mYm2020) central. It was at 07.55 this morning, according to the Time and Date website. Nearly half an hour earlier than the latest sunrise of the winter at 08.24, which included December 31st.
Likewise, in the other direction, sunset has stretched the light 50 minutes later, from 15.54 to 16.44. So that’s about an extra hour and twenty minutes of light a day.
The horizon cloud gap was back this morning and the light looked a glowing yellow in the gap, as if the colour was compressed below the cloud. Again, I don’t know if that’s an optical illusion!?
greenYgrey fans can probably see gYg,

sunlight and photosynthesising tree,
original returned or baby or three,
or trick of the light photo technology?
The outer ring seems to be PinkyOrangePurple (well pinky anyway!) in the first too, for new POP age fans, fitting in with the POP following on from the greenYgrey core gYgPOP evolution!

Grilled tomato smoke
wafted greyer than air
as sunlight broke
through window to evoke
before Venus rose
a female soprano voice
emitted from the TV
triggering thought energy
in my brain synergy
the power of three…
to be remembered
half the day later
after seeing Venus
now bright in night
clear as day, as they did say
above new crescent moon.
27 Jan. The Moon returns to the evening sky and appears just 6o from brilliant Venus in the west after sunset. Today, the planet Neptune is less than 0.25 degrees north of Venus. If you have a telescope, try to see these two worlds in a single field of view. As January ends, Venus rises nearly 3.5 hours after the Sun and reaches well above the western horizon at sunset. Other than the Moon or Sun, it’s the brightest thing in the sky.
