Flat Earth Debate / star coordinate system in fet?
« on: November 09, 2014, 12:09:07 PM »
I've asked this in a few threads but haven't received any answers, so I'll just start a thread for it. Maybe it will attract an answer. So:

Observing the night sky, angular distances between extrasolar objects remains the same throughout the night. Easy way to see this is to look at constellations, and see if they change their shape from dusk to dawn: they do not. Is there a fet model of celestial mechanics consistent with this fact? If there is, I have not seen any mention of it. To make observing this even easier, get a planetarium software such as stellarium - free and open source - see how it works in the "re model", go out and see if it's the same or not.

Some fe'rs have insisted repeatedly that this observation is "incorrect", and that the stars would actually move closer and further away from each other throughout the night. They are mistaken, of course - or can you show why they are in fact correct in this?
