the Earth's orbit around the sun

The Earth revolves around the sun.It takes 1 year to take one trip around the sun because, the sun is so huge it takes a long time to go around the sun.The Earth also, spins around while it rotates around the sun.Shadows move because, the Earth rotates once every hour. The reason the shadows are shortest at noon is because, the sun starts going down.And the reason the shadow is longest in the morning is because,that is when the sun starts rising and it also, gets right above something and it gets longer.The moon rotates around the Earth while the Earth is rotating around the sun.Also,the moon has no air on its surface.The moon is in the Earth's gravity pull.The sun measures 1,392,000 km across.The sun is so, big that if the sun was empty ball you could fit 1 million Earths inside it.the sun weighs 2 billion billion billion tons that's 2 with 27 zeros after it that's 333,000 times as much as the Earth.
