Many of us have been taught about how the solar system works by viewing a physical model that has the sun in the middle with the planets going around and around in a simple circular orbit without properly accounting for the motion of the sun (aprox. 450,000 miles per hour).
Because the both sun and the galaxy are moving through space, the Earth spirals an incredible distance through space in a year's time. How far the Earth moves depends on the reference point you are using for something "stationary" or "background" even though all objects in the universe are in motion.
The Earth rotates at 0-1040 mi/hr (depends on latitude)The Earth orbits the sun at aprox. 66,629 mi/hrThe sun orbits the galactic centre at aprox. 447,000 mi/hrIn just considering how fast the sun is moving, we know the Earth travels at least 3,918,402,000 miles in a years time! (as it also orbits around the sun) Total speed of the Earth moving through space is difficult to approximate do to the combination of motions.Using Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation it is estimated the total motion of the Earth through space is aprox. 1,342,000 mi/hrOr 11,763,972,000 miles in 1 year!
