I found this to be very interesting.

It takes about 200 million years for the Sun to orbit the center of the Galaxy. This artist created a timeline video of where earth was in relation to the timeline of the sun's orbit around the center of the Galaxy.

Yes my mistake!

Christiansen said it took her about four hours to make the film using timed animations in PowerPoint. She also noted a couple minor corrections to the text in her video: plesiosaurs are not dinosaurs, and we complete a galactic orbit every 250 million years (not 200 million years).

It wasn't your mistake. The video showed 200 million years by the person who made the animation for the video. I thought it was someone other than Christianson. I think there were credits at the end of it. Although maybe I'm wrong. It's easy for things like that to slip through.
