Title: Speed of the sun
Post by: artfx1 on April 11, 2016, 05:55:09 AM
This is an issue I haven't found anything on yet.
When the sun is traveling around/above the surface of the flat earth, wouldn't it take longer, ie more than 24hrs, to travel near the outside of the equator, verses nearer to the north pole to maintain a 24hr day, moving at a constant speed? Does the sun move faster the farther from the North pole it is, and slower near it? Are the days shorter outside the equator because of this? Does the sun have variable speed?
Even clock hands cover more area near the outside of the clock than near the center.
Thanks

Welcome to theforum! You're going to get an answer along the lines of an "aetheric whirpool." (Not that that is an actual answer)
