Motion of Sun
Name: Tony W
Date: 1993 - 1999
I was wondering.... Does the sun have any motion in respect to ou
solar system, or is it completely stationary (no spin, etc.) with all of
the other planets orbiting around it?
That's a good question, Tony. The sun not only spins on its axis but
also travels around the center of our galaxy in a big orbit.
And our galaxy is moving relative to other galaxies. Basically,
everything is moving.
