Is it possible to change Earth's inclination in stellarium?
In my understanding the inclination is the angle of the plane of the solar
system (ecliptic plane) with respect to the normal to Earth's axial tilt. I
can also be thought of as the angle between the celestial equator and the
ecliptic. So if the inclination were 0 degrees then the celestial equator and
the ecliptic would coincide. If the inclination were 90 degrees then the Earth
would be tipped all the way on it's side and the ecliptic and celestial
equator would make a right angle. I ask because I am teaching a naked eye
astronomy course and would like to show students how the seasons would change
if we could adjust the Earth's tilt (inclination). Thank you for any
information on this. I have been a long time fan of Stellarium and use it in
class and always tell people about it.

No, we don't have tool for simple change of inclination.
