Very Easy although I had 2 answers and they both work. The correct answer an dThe little hand and the big hand of the clocks also works.

It was easy I didn't think about the clock's hands though. Nice job

The moon goes around the sun, not follows it. I thought the big and little hand also but dimissed it because sometimes the little brother leads the big brother. So neither answers work for me and now I'm disappointed.

well DAHHHHHHHH fricken easy

Usually the moon is refered to in the female. It wasn't a bad riddle, but not necessarily great, either.

From Earth the moon may appear to follow the sun. On the other hand, from Earth the moon and sun appear to be the same size. I thought the brothers may have been the Earth and moon. Both are thought to be formed of the same group of matter, and the moon (in a way) follows the earth around the sun.

Good effort.

Talk about feeling dumb...I've never heard of the sun and moon being masculine in nature-except the man in the moon. Of course when you think about it they do both have a few things in common with the male gender!

all i have to say is " what the heck!"

I'll certainly buy the two being called "brothers" -- that's part of "riddle language".

However, the moon does *not* follow the sun around all year. As your hint suggests, just look up. The moon follows the sun half the time (waxing) and leads it the other half (waning).

My answer for this is the north polar constellations, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor.
