Question: How many degrees did the Earths axis shift?

Rather, our planets axis is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees. Thats why the northern and southern hemispheres get varying amounts of sunlight at different times of the year, which is why we have seasons.

How much does the Earths axis move each year?

These spin-axis movements are scientifically referred to as polar motion. Measurements for the 20th century show that the spin axis drifted about 4 inches (10 centimeters) per year. Over the course of a century, that becomes more than 11 yards (10 meters).
