A star one parsec away would seem to shift back and forth by one second of arc as we orbit our Sun each year. perigee - the point of closest approach of an object orbiting the Earth in an elliptical orbit. perihelion - The point in a planet’s orbit around the Sun where that planet is closest to the Sun.
