Earth rotation diagram is the rotation of planet Earth around its axis. As the below image suggests, Earth rotates eastward in prograde motion. As viewed from the north pole star Polaris, Earth turns counterclockwise. Earth rotates once in about 24 hours concerning the Sun, but once every 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4 seconds with respect to other, distant stars. Earth’s rotation axis moves concerning the fixed stars; the components of this motion precession and nutation. It also carries with respect to Earth’s crust; this is called polar motion.
