Time and seasons Earth is in constant motion. It orbits the Sun, and while it travels, rotates on its axis. As Earth rotates, we experience day or night, depending on which side of the planet faces the Sun. As it orbits the Sun, we experience different seasons. It takes Earth a year to make one full trip around the Sun and begin the cycle of seasons again. Long ago, people realized that the Sun follows recognizable patterns throughout the day and through the seasons. They used these patterns to keep track of time.
