OK, so I'm going to see if any FE'ers want to try and prove

this model of how the Earth, Sun, and Moon relate to each other. In the quote below, you will find a few formulas you can use to scale down the model I linked. Then try them at home. In order to prove that the model linked is even possible, you will need to get the light source to effectively illuminate half of the surface area of the circle in a pattern consistent with current know sunlight patterns. If you can't do it, than it disproves this model. If you can, than it proves this model would can work. That's pretty easy for you. So, instead of being lazy and just posting reasons why you won't try the experiment (Parsifal), give it a shot and see if you can score one for the FET team!

It's simple. Here you go.

1. By knowing in your model that the sun is 32 miles across and 3000 miles away than we can calculate that the objects distance is 93.75 times it's diameter.

2. By comparing the diameters of the two objects, 32 miles for the sun, and 24,900 miles for the Earth, we can calculate that the Earth in your model is 778.125 times larger than your sun.

Using this data, here are your variables.

S-Sun's Diameter

E-Earth's Diameter

A-Sun's Altitude Above Earth.

And here are your formulas.

E=S*778.125

A=S*93.75

So, use whatever you want for your sun's diameter, it will give you the other measurement, and then you can try it out for yourself.

Don't forget, guys. The model you use for the sun MUST be a spot light! See the quote below.

Q: "What about time zones?"

A: **The sun is a spotlight** which shines light on a concentrated area, so not everywhere on Earth will be lit at once. Times zones exist so that everyone's clock will be at 12:00 around the time the sun is approximately directly overhead.
