What is a season???????????????

Ok so I have just done a couple of lessons where one tells me that the spanish for "Season" is Temporada, then the next lesson tells me that it is Estacion, which I thought meant Station. So I lose points for getting it wrong when I know I am right. Explain please.

Temporada means season as in the tilt of the Earth as well as a season of a TV show, or football season, or any temporary period of time. EstaciĆ³n usually means "station" though it has a translation to "season(climatic)" too. I like to think of it as "the Earth is at the summer station/stage in its orbit"

If the lesson is marking you wrong, I would hit the "Still think you're correct?" and add the translation
