Caption

Orbits of the Earth and Moon. Artwork of the Sun, Earth and Moon, with the orbits of the Earth and Moon shown as red and blue ellipses respectively. The Earth orbits the Sun at a distance of about 150 million kilometres, while the Moon orbits the Earth at a distance of 384,400 kilometres. The Earth takes just over 365 days to orbit the Sun, while the Moon takes just over 27 days to orbit the Earth. Like all the other planets and the Moon, the Earth orbits in a counter-clockwise direction when viewed from above (North). In this diagrammatic representation, the distances and sizes are not to scale.
