How Earth Moves

Our spaceship Earth is in constant motion – rotating and revolving as it traverses through space.

The earth moves two ways. It spins and it moves around the sun. The spinning of the earth is called rotation. It takes the earth abut 24 hours, or one day, to make one complete rotation. At the same time, the earth is moving around the sun. This is called a revolution. It takes a little over 365 days, or one year, for the earth to make one full revolution around the sun.
