Does the Earth orbit clockwise or anti-clockwise around the Sun?
It depends which way you are looking at it. If you are looking upon the solar system from the "top" or north (looking down on the North Pole), it is anti-clockwise. If you are looking from the south, it's clockwise. Since most of the people on Earth live in the northern hemisphere, we tend to consider things from the north (much to the chagrin of the Australians), so anti-clockwise (counterclockwise) it is.
Nearly all the spins and orbits of the planets (and the rotation of the Sun) are in the same direction, ie. counterclockwise when observed from above Earth's north pole. Some moons orbit their planets clockwise (retrograde orbits) and the planet Venus has somehow obtained a very slow clockwise spin.
If you look at the Earth and its orbit from high above the North Pole of the planet Earth, then the Earth travels anticlockwise, or counterclockwise (Both words mean the same) in its orbit around the sun. Of course, if you look at it from the direction of the South Pole, it travels clockwise. Note that the Earth also rotates anticlockwise, as seen from the North.
The Earth revolves counterclockwise around the Sun as viewed from above the North Pole. The moon orbits the Earth in a counter clockwise direction. The Planets orbit the Sun in a counter clockwise direction. The Sun rotates counterclockwise on its axis too. If one goes higher, the galaxy rotates counter clockwise as well. There is pattern here.
Counter-clockwise. Looking down on the solar system from the Sun's North pole, all the planets orbit in an anticlockwise direction. Also most planets spin on their own axis in a counter- clockwise direction. The Moon revolves round the Earth in the same counter- clockwise direction as the Earth's spin. Thus, to keep the same face pointing to the Earth while it makes a revolution round the Earth the Moon must also rotate in an counter…
It spins to the right of the sun. Another viewpoint: The plane of the Sun's equator is tilted by just a few degrees to the plane of the Earth's orbit. So, the Earth revolves around the Sun roughly in the plane containing the Sun's equator. The Earth certainly does not orbit over the Poles of the Sun. Whether Earth orbits to "left or right" depends on the how you look at the orbit. Also, it's…
