Caption

Earth's rotation. Computer artwork of the Earth, showing its rotation and the apparent movement of the Sun and planets in relation to it. The vertical yellow axis is perpendicular to Earth's orbit around the Sun and the red axis is Earth's rotational axis (rotating west to east). The planets and the Sun appear to be moving in the opposite direction (east to west).
