Does the Sun Rise Directly East?

Answer

From the earth's vintage point the sun seems to rise from the east and set in the west. In reality, the earth is rotating or orbiting around the sun from west to east (counter clockwise direction). Thus, the earth rotates on its axis once every 24 hours and the Sun remains in its position.
