The earth moves at about 67,000 miles per hour around the sun and rotates over 1000 miles per hour.


The Earth's orbit isn't quite circular; it's a little bit elliptical, so the speed of the Earth in its orbit around the Sun is not constant. It's a little faster in January, when the Earth is closest to the Sun, and it slows down a bit until July, when it is furthest away. But on average, just a bit under 67,000 miles per hour.
