It is pretty close to 0. I am sitting at a desk. However, I am also sitting on the planet earth which is revolving on its axis as well as rotating around the sun (approximately); the sun is rotating along with our arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, the Milky Way Galaxy is moving through space towards the Andromeda Galaxy and our local cluster is headed towards ... . My head starts spinning when I think of all the calculations required. Besides, what fixed frame of reference can I use to measure all these movements?
