Earth, Moon and Sun System movements
How do the Sun, the Earth and the Moon move?
The Earth and everything in our SOLAR SYSTEM is constantly moving.
Our SOLAR SYSTEM includes the SUN, nine PLANETS and their MOONS, COMETS and ASTEROIDS. These objects are sometimes called CELESTIAL BODIES.
- At the centre of these SOLAR SYSTEM is the SUN. It takes the sun 25 days to spin or rotate completey around of this system.
- The Earth takes 24 hours to rotate ITSELF. That causes DAY and NIGHT.
- At the same time, the EARTH is moving around the SUN. That path around the Sun is called ORBIT. It takes the Earth one year (365 1/4 days) to completely orbit the Sun.
- In addition, meanwhile, the Moon orbits the Earth. The Moon’s orbit lasts 27-29 1/2 days.
