# Is a cosmic year the same as a leap year?

A **cosmic year** is 220 million years, the time it takes for
the entire Milky Way galaxy to rotate once.

If by a cosmic year you mean a **sidereal year**, the answer
is still no. A sidereal year is the time it takes the Earth to go
completely around the sun, which is 365 days, 6 hours, 9 minutes,
and 9.54 seconds.

The difference between the calendar year and the sidereal year
(approximately 6 hours, or a quarter of a day) is the reason we add
a leap day to the calendar every four years. And the leftover
amount (the extra 9-plus minutes) is the reason we *subtract*
a leap day from three out of every four century years (years ending
in '00', such as 2100).
