Can't get to sun.com or forums.sun.com. This seems to be happening more and more often.

It goes around the Earth every 24 hours.

Well, sort of. Really, the Earth orbits the Sun and rotates away (or towards depending on perspective) relative to the sun, with one full rotation taking 24 hours.

These are some mighty strange ideas! But like other people of sound mind and spirit, I have never felt the Earth move. The Sun's movement is easily observable, and consistent with The Order.

I recommend you enjoy a cool beverage and calm your nerves.
