Gnomon - time to move on

Hi Shagbark. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe you should use "rotate" for objects turning on their axis, and "revolve" for objects orbiting around another object.

So where you say that planets rotate around the sun, it should be revolve around the sun.

This looks OK to me now, although I'd like to see the explanation of astronomical units simplified:

(1AU = the distance from the Earth to the Sun)

I haven't time at the moment, so you go ahead and do it. If not, I'll try and do it tomorrow.
