This is one of the objectives of assignment 3, but unless I'm insane, the code to do this is already in the solar.c file?

the earth isnt rotating around its own axis. Its rotating around the sun.

The moon is also rotating around the earth

Earth and Moon rotate counter-clockwise.

The moon rotates every 27 days around the earth

Yes, but there's code in there the is explicitly commented as "Make the earth rotate on its own axis", which it appears to be doing. It isn't rotating once a day, but appears to be rotating once a year. It's also revolving around the sun once a year.
