sun's angle
« on: December 09, 2010, 04:58:46 PM »
can you disprove FE theory by measuring the sun's angles?  i dont know if this goes in QA or this forum. 

but i think that beciase the FE sun is 3000 miles above, and the RE sun is 1 AU from earth, the angles should be vastly different.  like in FE wouldnt the north pole sun be 45 degrees at the equinox?  wouldnt it be more in RE earth?

why?  the sun should strike differently due to different distance.  the shape is not the same too

You are correct. Ignore Thork.

Data of sun rise, sun set times have been provided and yet no FEer has attempted to reconcile it with a FE model.

No, it is 0 degrees to the horizon.

No, it is 0 degrees to the horizon.

It would not be 0 degrees in a FE. At best it may approach 0 but never reach it.

"The sun's [sic] angles" makes no sense. Please rephrase your question in a way that does.

Do tell. A diagram and equation would be nice.

What is the angle of the sun's rays with the horizon when an observer notices that the Sun rises or sets?

i cant make a model atm, so i will try to describe it to you.  at the equinox, the sun is at the equator of the flat earth. so the light would be like this to the north pole right?
                                            (sun)
                                          /
                                       /
                                    /
                                 /
                              /

no matter how far the north pole is away from the sun, the angle would not be the same as a round earth right?

Not terribly on topic, but something I was working on that could serve as decent food for thought:



Maybe someone could try to finish my thought, because I forgot where I was going with it.
