The celestial sphere appears to rotate about the celestial poles completing one cycle in one day
The celestial sphere appears to rotate about the celestial poles (completing one cycle in one day).



Question: poles (completing one cycle in one day). What causes the observed circular motions of the stars, Sun, Moon, and planets about the celestial pole?

  • Hypothesis 1: The Earth is stationary, and the stars, Sun, Moon, and planets revolve around it.

  • Hypothesis 2: The stars, Sun, Moon, and planets are not revolving about the Earth; it is the Earth which is rotating about its polar axis, once per day.


This or that
This or that? poles (completing one cycle in one day).



Question what causes this apparent motion of the sun relative to the background stars
Question: one cycle in one year). What causes this apparent motion of the Sun relative to the background stars?

  • Hypothesis 1: The Earth is stationary, and the Sun revolves around it at a slightly slower rate than the celestial sphere does.

  • Hypothesis 2: The Earth revolves around the Sun, once per year.


This or that1
This or that? one cycle in one year).


The moon moves west to east relative to the stars completing one cycle in one month
The Moon moves west to east relative to the stars (completing one cycle in one month).


Question what causes this apparent motion of the moon relative to the background stars
Question: (completing one cycle in one month). What causes this apparent motion of the Moon relative to the background stars?

  • Hypothesis 1: The Earth is stationary at the center of the universe, and the Moon revolves around it a a slower rate than the celestial sphere does.

  • Hypothesis 2: The Moon revolves around the rotating Earth, once per month.
