The Greatest Man That Ever Lived
Sunrise and Sunset
The question then is: Why doesn't the sunrise and sunset distance change since there is
3200 miles between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn? The answer is this.
It doesn't change much because the days are longer when the sun is at the Tropic of Cancer
therefore the distance is larger between sunrise and sunset. In hours by about 4 hours
more than when it's at the Equator and 8 hours more than when it's at the Tropic of
Capricorn. So what we lose in width we gain in distance so it's about the same. The
drawing shows how this works. It's not drawn to scale, but you get the idea.
|As you can see its a lot further from Winnipeg to A (sunrise) or
F (sunset) than from Winnipeg to the Tropic of Cancer. The
same is true of B and C but may not be as visible as these lines
are not drawn to exact scale.
|Being able to look at the sun at Sunrise and Sunset PROVES that
the sun is the furthest away from us at Sunrise and Sunset and
closest at Midday as the drawing shows.
And that it is Definately Not 93 Million Miles away.
Have you ever wondered why you could look at the sun at sunrise and sunset but not at
high noon? After all as long as we can see the shape of the sun, the sun's rays will come
directly to our eyes. For us in the Northern Hemisphere when the sun is over the Tropic of
Capricorn the sun's rays strike the earth in our part of the country at a bigger angle so the
sun does not warm up the earth as much as it does when it is at the Tropic of Cancer. But
when we look at the sun, if the sun is indeed 93 million miles away it does not matter what
time we look at the sun, it would still shine directly into our eyes. Sun's rays travel in
straight lines so we would get the same sunlight to our eyes if we look directly at it anytime
the sun is in the sky. Yet we can look at the sun at sunrise and sunset but not at midday.
This is because the light is coming directly to your eyes no matter where the light source
is. Now, when you shine the flashlight onto a table and tilt it back and forth, you can see
the change in the area that it lights up. This is one reason it's colder in winter and warmer
in summer. The sun's rays still travel in a straight line, they just cover a larger and smaller
area. You can do the same experiment with a light bulb, the brightness will not change.
On a flat earth the sun works differently than on the globe model. On a flat earth the sun
travels in an orbit about 3000 miles above the earth. The orbit is parallel to the earth all
year long, all that changes is that the sun's orbit goes from the Tropic of Capricorn to the
Tropic of Cancer and back again. This is what produces our seasons. The sun lights up
one half of the earth at a time. The sun does not "rise" or "set" it simply approaches us at
sunrise and departs at sunset. It looks like the sun travels in an arc, but it does not, this is
just our perspective that makes it look like that.
Have you also noticed that on
Dec 21 the sun does not
appear as bright at midday but
on June 21st we cannot even
look at it. You can prove this
to yourself by taking a
flashlight and holding it
straight out to the left of you,
shining it in your eyes and
then making an arc to the
other side while shining it in
your eyes. The light will be the
same. You can do this from
further away as well. As long
as the distance of the arc does
not change too much the light
will be the same.
Here is the reason why the sun is brighter at midday than at sunrise and sunset. Using
timeand date.com I chose Winnipeg, MB Canada as the location I would use because it is
near the 50 parallel and is almost the center of North America. I looked up the sunrise,
sunset, and high noon times for Dec 21, March 21, and June 21. I didn't look up Sept 21
because the sun would be back at the equator then and give the same reading as March
21. And what I found is that using a flat earth model, the sun is an average of 6500 miles
away from us at sunrise and sunset. This is why we can look at it then. At sunset the sun
is moving away from us until we cannot see it any longer. All lights have their range, and
the sun's range is about 6500 miles. However, at midday, the sun is 5040 miles away from
Winnipeg on Dec 21, 3500 miles away on March 21 and Sept 21, and 1865 miles away on
June 21 (all distances approximate). Therefore: THE SUN IS MUCH CLOSER TO US AT
MIDDAY THAN AT SUNRISE AND SUNSET. Actually by 1260 miles on Dec 21, by 3050 miles
on March 21 and Sept 21, and by 4535 miles on June 21. That is a Huge Difference.
|It's no wonder
look at the sun
at midday, it's
too close to us
then but we
can look at it
at sunrise and
This is also how we know how high the dome is. The sun lights up the sky. The sky is
the firmament or dome. Since the sun's range is only 6500 miles (it doesn't light up much
of the sky at "sunset") the dome must be between 6,000 and 10,000 miles high as that
would put it within the sun's range. Six thousand miles would put the sun midway
between the dome and the earth, and 10,000 miles would put the sun about 6500 miles
away from the dome and 3000 miles away from the earth.
