Astro Bob: How to sense Earth's rotation, revolution in real time

Here at 47 degrees north I'm madly spinning eastward at 710 mph (1,143 kph). Everything else around me is, too. That's terribly fast, but my teacup and radio stay put because we're all moving at the same speed and at rest relative to one another.

We will not accept this fraudulent election.”
