There are thousands of such curt, strenuous ladies in the offices of London, but the interest of these lay rather in their real than their apparent position
Their apparent position
had moved because the sun's gravity had distorted the path of their starlight, just as Einstein had predicted.

on the sky.
As such, an extra 24 hours builds up every four years, meaning that an extra calendar day has to be added to align the calendar with the sun's apparent position
To understand recession, it helps to distinguish between the actual and apparent position
of the gingiva.
The phenomenon of parallax, or slight shifts in apparent position
depending on viewpoint, is particularly explicated with its relevance to star measurement.
The team led by astronomer Adam Deller did this by observing the object over a two-year period to detect its parallax, the slight shift in apparent position
against background objects when viewed from opposite ends of Earth's orbit around the Sun.

relative to arbitrarily defined constellations at the time of your birth somehow affects your personality" (Sheldon, Big Bang Theory, season 1, episode 1).

of an object with respect to its background.

changes of distant objects to gauge absolute size.
