Earth’s Rotation on Its Axis: Earth rotates from west to east on its axis (Figure 1-24), a complete rotation requiring 24 hours (from the vantage point of looking down at the North Pole from space, Earth is rotating in a counterclockwise direction). The Sun, the Moon, and the stars appear to rise in the east and set in the west—this is, of course, an illusion created by the steady eastward spin of Earth. Rotation causes all parts of Earth’s surface except the poles to move in a circle around Earth’s axis.

This scene is near Alice Springs in the center of Australia. ▲ Figure 1-19 Lines of longitude, or meridians, indicate east–west location and all converge at the poles. 16 Physical Geography: A Landscape Appreciation North Pole Freetown Prime Meridian Greenwich 13°W Establishing the Prime Meridian: The equator is a natural baseline from which to measure latitude, but no such natural reference line exists for longitude.
