revolution not rotation:)

I am not an astronomer but I believe the correct term for describing earth's movement around the sun is not "rotation" but "revolution."  I think it would be correct to say,

"...en fait, la révolution de la Terre autour du Soleil dure quelques heures de plus chaque année."
