Difference between Sidereal time and Time

Sidereal time vs. Time

Sidereal time is a timekeeping system that astronomers use to locate celestial objects. Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future.

Similarities between Sidereal time and Time

Fixed stars

The fixed stars (stellae fixae) comprise the background of astronomical objects that appear to not move relative to each other in the night sky compared to the foreground of Solar System objects that do.
