Which one is the biggest the planetary system or galaxy?
Asked in Astronomy, Planetary Science, The Moon
How often does the moon revolve around earth relative to the stars?
The sidereal revolution time of the Moon is 27.32 days. This is the length of time it revolves relative to distant stars. Of more use, however, is the synodic period, which is 29.53 days, the average length of time it takes to repeat a phase. The reason for the difference between these two times is that the Moon is revolving around the Earth, at the same time the Earth is rotating about its axis, at the same time that the Earth is revolving around the Sun.
Asked in Astronomy
Which are the pair of stars that travel together and rotate around each other as the moon does the earth?
There are a great number of "binary" stars, but you generally need a good telescope to see that there is more than one star. One naked-eye set is the second star from the end of the Big Dipper's handle; it has a dim companion that can be seen only on clear, dark nights. Telescopes show this system has six stars, but four are much too dim for eyes or even binoculars. Also, stars do not 'rotate' around each other; they 'revolve' around each other. Rotating is spinning in place, and revolving is circling around repeatedly.

Asked in Seasons
Why is it so hot during the summer?
well because of the earth revolving around the sun different parts are facing the son there for we have seasons. when its summer in Minnesota, its more than like winter in china. so basically, its because of the earth revolving around the sun and the sun is facing us more than any other place on earth.

Asked in Astronomy, The Solar System
What is the heliocentric model of the solar system?
The heliocentric model of the solar system is one that places the sun at the center of our solar system with all the planets revolving around it. This was proposed in opposition to the geocentric model, which had the Earth at the center of the solar system with the planets and the sun revolving around it, that was more popular at the time.
Asked in Technology
How do you connect electricity from a stationery object to a revolving one such as a lighted revolving sign?
Asked in Science
An object that revoles around another object?
The one doing the revolving is the "orbiting object". It doesn't usually get more specific than that, unless one is referring to a moon or man-made object in orbit around a planet. Those are called satellites. Other orbiting objects include the planets of a solar system around their sun, and the electrons of an atom around its nucleus.
Asked in Astronomy, Planetary Science

Asked in Planetary Science, Stars
Why might stars of one color be much more abundant than stars of another color?
Asked in Definitions
How would you define revolution?
A revolution (from the Latin revolutio, "a turn around") is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time. For more info see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolution A revolution can also refer to something, such as a planet, revolving (orbiting) around another body.
Asked in Astronomy, Planetary Science, Stars
A binary star is a system of 2 stars that rotate around a common mass?
No. A common point, not a common mass. The point they both revolve around is the point between them where the pivot on the see-saw would have to be in order for them to balance each other. If their masses are equal, then the point is exactly mid-way between them. If one body is much much more massive than the other one, then the point they both revolve around may be so far off-center that it's actually inside the bigger one. That's the situation with the earth and sun revolving around a common point, and also with the earth and moon revolving around a common point.
