Oops, try again. Did you add 'position: absolute;' to your #earth-orbit style?

I went onto this forum, trying to see compare my code to the rest and mine looked the same but it still told me about my postition:absolute.
This is my code:
#earth {
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 50%;

height: 50px;
width: 50px;
margin-left: -25px;
margin-top: -25px;

#earth-orbit {
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
left: 50%;

width: 500px;
height: 500px;
margin-top: -250px;
margin-left: -250px;

border-width: 2px;
border-style: dotted;
border-color: white;
border-radius: 50%;

Please help

I had this same problem, it seemed to be because I had an extra bracket (}) at the end of my 'Earth' section on the style sheets. Try looking to see if you have any extra brackets, deleting them and resubmitting. Hopefully it works then!

I'm having the same problem. Mine looks exactly like yours. I even tried copying and pasting it directly from the Instructions. It must be a glitch, so I'm just going to move on. It will annoy me that it won't be 100% finished, so I hope there's a workaround eventually. I'm on Firefox, it might just be the brower ? idk
