Wikipedia definition
4. YearA year is the orbital period of the Earth moving around the Sun. For an observer on Earth, this corresponds to the period it takes the Sun to complete one course throughout the zodiac along the ecliptic. In astronomy, the Julian year is a unit of time, defined as 365.25 days of 86400 SI seconds each. There is no universally accepted symbol for the year as a unit of time. The International System of Units does not propose one.
