Celestial navigation (quiz)

The Aids to Navigation (quiz) thread, which I've been mostly luking on for a while, has inspired me to create a similar quiz for Celestial nav, mostly for selfish reasons.

I'll start, also sort of at the beginning:

What direction does the Earth revolve around the sun?
What direction does the sun revolve around the Earth?
What direction does the moon revolve around the Earth?

Please specify CW or CCW and specify what pole you're looking at.

s/v Essorant - 1972 Catalina 27
