          Have you searched for the tutorials on the issue?

           

          If those don’t help please post a meaningful screenshot – that means one that includes all pertinent Panels etc.

            Hi

            I used your image and made a Spherical Panorama from it and lit it from the left. I tilted the camera 23 degrees

            Then to animate :

            Open the timeline and create video timeline.

            Set keyframes under 3D Meshes - Spherical Panorama

            I set identical keyframes at the start and end - then 3 intermediates at 90 degree angles

             

            Then render the video (this example, for quickness, was just a quick GPU render rather than high quality ray traced then exported as a GIF)
