Some questions to help you think further about the previous question and whether your answer is correct, or whether your answer needs to be changed.

  • How long does it take to go from midday, noon, to sun down approximately? Number of hours?
  • How long does it take the sun to move along the ecliptic from one constellation to the next along the ecliptic? Number of hours, days, months, or years?
  • How long does it take the sun to go once around the ecliptic? Don’t we have a special name for this time period.
