##### What is the speed of the Sun
« on: June 08, 2021, 04:02:07 PM »
I am trying to understand FE theory.  To be honest my questions never seem to get answered acceptably.  Here are two very specific ones.
1. What is the speed of the Sun as it moves over the Earth?
2.  What is the distance of the Sun to an observer, when it sets?

The distance of the sun is i think 57 miles.
While the speed is a little faster than the moon.
So i say that the sun moves over 300 miles an hour.
I think the sun might be 300 miles or less an hour,could be more.
But anyways im looking at a gif that shows the sun and moon moving and considering how high it is it might be slower than what i though.

Are you saying the Sun is 57 miles away, or that it sets when it is 57 miles away?  I asked how far it is away when it sets.

Oh.
Then i think the sun appears to set because light is bending or something.
So i say 57 miles away with light refracting.

If the speed is 300 miles per hour, and the distance is 57 miles that you can see it, then the sun would only be visible for about 20 minutes a day.  Are there other answers to these questions?

I say that its less than 90 miles then.

So again, I can't get answers that make sense.  At 90 miles with the speed of 300 miles an hour, the sun would be visible 1/2 hour a day.
