        Observe Sunrise and Sunset

        Night and day are determined by the Sun's presence in the sky. As Earth rotates, the portion of the planet that is illuminated by the Sun experiences day while the portion that faces away from the Sun experiences night. As observed from most locations on Earth, the Sun appears to rise in the east and set in the west every day. In this segment produced for Teachers' Domain, observe time-lapse video of a sunrise and a sunset.
