Spiral dynamics of the solar system

This is a very rough animation that describes the spiral dynamics of our solar system. Nassim Haramein had to have someone animate this many years ago because at the time almost every related computer animation showed the sun sitting still with the planets making circular orbits around it rather than showing the motion of the sun and the planets as they move through space. This simple animation was created by Nassim Haramein and The Resonance Project Foundation http://www.resonance.is/ This is a video clip that every human should see. Many of us have been taught about how the solar system works by viewing a physical model that has the sun in the middle with the planets going around and around in a simple circular orbit without properly accounting for the motion of the sun (aprox. 450,000 miles per hour). Because the both sun and the galaxy are moving through space, the Earth spirals an incredible distance through space in a year's time. How far the Earth moves depends on the reference point you are using for something "stationary" or "backgroud" even though all objects in the universe are in motion. The Earth rotates at 0-1040 mi/hr (depends on latitude) The Earth orbits the sun at aprox. 66,629 mi/hr The sun orbits the galactic center at aprox. 447,000 mi/hr In just considering how fast the sun is moving, we know the Earth travels at least 3,918,402,000 miles in a years time! (as it also orbits around the sun) Total speed of the Earth moving through space is difficult to approximate do to the combination of motions. Using Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation it is estimated the total motion of the Earth through space is aprox. 1,342,000 mi/hr Or 11,763,972,000 miles in 1 year! (which is still only 0.2% the speed of light!) The old model might make one picture being back where you started after a year of time has past, when in fact, you are over 11 BILLION miles from where you were a year ago! Hopefully this video helps people to visualize what the motion of the Earth relative to the rest of our solar system looks like.

It's not especially useful to view the orbital motion this way. It's implying that there is some other reference frame that is more valid -- that our solar system is moving through 'the ether'. The most rational view is that the best reference frame is where tidal forces (gravitational differences e.g. div/grad/curl of the field) cease to be significant, or perhaps detectable. We can easily detect the tidal forces of the moon and the sun. We cannot directly detect tidal forces of the universe. Therefore the solar system, with the sun as the reference frame, is the "best" model.

^^^This. OP: While everything is in motion, it does depend upon one's frame of reference. Einstein talked of this decades ago. Further, no planet orbits the Sun in a circular orbit. A common misconception. They're just easier to depict than ellipses in graphics like this. And yes, that includes the Earth.
