your perception of the light you see is relitive to the gravity field you are in. kinda like if you are in a moving car, the soda in the bottle next to you looks stationary to you but its moving if youre standing on the road.
Benny is correct, the Sun's orbit is almost a circle, but 2% closer means Earth gets 4% more energy from the sun. These amounts are enough different to be important in some studies, besides some of us like to strain at a gnat while we swallow a camel.<br />To go for the ultiment gnat, there are no circular orbits, as all are parts per billion, or considerably eliptical with extra parts per trillion lumps caused by the gravity of other bodies in our solar system.
