Re: So another trip around the Sun comes to an end.

I don't know how we get around the big fireball so quickly. It was only 30 odd trips ago that i was a little'un myself.
How many trips have you had round it?

Sidereal time is a time-keeping system astronomers use to keep track of the direction to point their telescopes to view a given star in the night sky.
Briefly, sidereal time is a "time scale that is based on the Earth's rate of rotation measured relative to the fixed stars" rather than the Sun.

So there. Cheesy

What do you mean that we go round the sun?  Surely the sun goes round us, what with Earth being the centre of the universe and everything Smiley

What this "round" business. Everything is flat.
Happy new year everyone and watch out you don't fall off the edge.
