The sun (and its system, including us) is moving in an orbit around the center of the Milky Way, and it is moving at the brisk rate of 486,000 miles per hour. It takes an unfathomable 226 million years for the sun (and its solar system) to make the full circuit around. The last time we were at this position was 226 million years ago, and dinosaurs ruled. The earth travels at 67,000 miles per hour in its orbit around the sun; a snail's pace compared to our galactic romp. See link.

The Sun doesn't move fast, but if you mean which planet moves fast around the sun then it would be Mercury, because it is closer.

The ladybug does not move very fast but its exact speed varies. This insect cannot fly in the direction of the sun.

It is closer to the Sun, so it must needs move faster to have a stable orbit.

it takes Neptune 165 earth years to orbit the sun

If you was listening in class, they wouldve told you the sun doesnt move, the other planets orbit and rotate the sun

Neptune takes about 165 Earth years to travel around the sun

That would be Mercury. Venus also has no moons, but does not move as fast as Mercury.

Near the Sun the force of gravity is very strong so the planet has more energy which means it has to move faster.

The sun does not move, we move around the sun.

Mercury travels the fastest around the Sun, at a velocity of about 47 km/s.

the earth doesn't move around the sun. the sun moves around earth because at that speed, we would be thrown off of earth.

They can move who knows how fast.

It takes Earth one year - about 365 days - to move once around the Sun. That's how the year is defined.

Near the Sun the force of gravity is stronger so the planet has more energy which means it has to move faster.

The answer is dependent on the Earth's rotation ... not the sun. Thus the answer varies from 1000 mph at the equator to zero at the poles.
