Motion of Sun
Name: T Wilson
Date: Prior to 1993
Does the sun have any motion in respect to our solar system, or
is it completely stationary (no spin, etc.) with all of the other planets
orbiting around it?
That is 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.
