This is how the Earth rotates with respect to the stationary stars.

From our perspective looking up at night, it always seems as though the stars are moving across the sky. This video fixes the camera on the (relatively) stationary stars, and shows how it's really us who are moving. It's a really cool trick, and a great video!
