Fascinating. Thank you all. This has been very helpful.
Is there any connection here with leap seconds? I have always understood them to be related to irregular slowing (or, in principle, speeding up) of the rotation of the earth. Is any portion of the leap second related to actual irregular variations in the orbit of the earth about the sun?
