My 5 year old and I were talking about the sun several days ago.  In the 
course of our discussions he asked how far the sun moved each day.  We 
were watching the sun set, and I told him each day the sun set in a 
different spot. Then he asked the question.  I have searched the web and 
the library, and cannot find an answer?  For my own knowledge, does the 
length of the day influence the distance traveled?
