Technically it doesn't go anywhere since the earth revolves around the sun. But time is different all around the world. Where it's daylight it's night somewhere else. When it's night here, it's daylight somewhere else. the sun doesn't go down its simply the earth turning on its axis. * I believe I learned this in kindergarten... lol. the teacher had a ball and turned it in front of a flash light as an example. I thought everyone knew this! :P
The sun does not go down, that is just a saying. Want a simple way, "to get it"? Take a basketball and put X on it Pretend the X is you. Noe go into a room and turn off all the lights except for one. Now turn the basketball slowly rotating it. Can you see that if the light were the sun the X goes into the light and then out of the light. To the X it would look like the sun (light) was going down. Get it!
The sun does not move, earth moves around the sun. So while earth is orbiting the sun and spinning to give us moving time, for 12 hours of the day, we get sunlight. The other 12 hours, the other hemisphere of the earth gets sun while we get the moon light.
