Orbit

Definition of Orbit

An orbit is a journey of a sphere in the universe around another planet, star, or moon. Our own solar system orbits around the Sun, and our own Moon orbits around planet Earth. Different heavenly bodies have orbits of different lengths, with the Moon taking approximately 29 days to orbit the Earth, but Pluto taking almost 250 years to orbit the Sun! An astrologer calculates the orbit of a planet, star, moon, or asteroid when interpreting any astrology chart.

TERM OF THE DAY

Full Moon

When the entire face of the moon is visible from Earth, opposite the sun and unobstructed from Earth's shadow, it is considered a full moon. A full moon occurs approximately every 29 days.
