Then , why every planet we watch on the telescope has a spherical shape?

Just consider the word "around".  The planets move "around" sun, it all concerns a circular motion, which would really be impossible elseway.

I mean, do you believe all stars and planets that can be watched  have spherical shape? Even galaxies seem to turn around themselves.

What do spherical planets in the sky have to do with the earth being flat?  ???

Well, since in the same sky, I just thought earth had do have a similar shape with the rest of the planets. Have in mind that also the sun and all of the stars have a spherical shape.

Using that logic, an oak tree in a pine forest is actually a pine tree.

Including earth,  I might add:
It is taken through an 8" astronomical telescope.

Strictly speaking, we do not see a spherical shape. What we see is a circular image. That alone would be consistent with a disc (though it would have to move so as always to face Earth, which would be improbable). However, the features move across the image in a way that is most easily explained by a rotating sphere.

The forum is still here and open for business with threads still proclaiming the earth to be flat. I though Elon Musk and his latest launch delt with that. Have fun.

Oh for the love of- Logical formulation:
FET is wrong, unsupported by evidence, and most models are refuted on multiple fronts; those that aren't tend not to make enough predictions to be realistically falsifiable

So why are you still checking this place out ?

I guess if Elon Musk is your tutor i understand your level of critical thinking.
Any news on the Tesla car on the spacy highway to the sun ?

He just performed experimental launch, used his car as dummy load to avoid rosking something else,
and parts of flight pre-recorded in studio because couldn't put cameras everywhere.

His Tesla will get to the orbit that Mars has around Sun, but it is not enough proof to Flat Earthers.
For them it is "just another staged launch and faked video".

Did you expect anything different this time?

No, it won't. I'd suggest staying more up to date on things

You are right. Thanks.

Elon Muskís Tesla Roadster, which launched on top of SpaceXís Falcon Heavy on Tuesday, is going farther out into the Solar System than originally planned. The car was supposed to be put on a path around the Sun that would take the vehicle out to the distance of Marsí orbit. But the rocket carrying the car seems to have overshot that trajectory and has put the Tesla in an orbit that extends beyond the Red Planetís path. However, the Tesla wonít be making it to the asteroid belt, as SpaceX CEO Elon Musk originally claimed.
