# 17 If A Flat Earth, Why Does the Sun Go Down?

Displaying

The Sun never sets or rises, it stays the same distance over the Earth throughout it’s daily/annual journeys around. The appearance of rising and setting is all based on the law of perspective on plane surfaces. The Sun and Moon spotlights are perpetually hovering over and parallel to the surface of the Earth.

From our vantage point, due to the Law of Perspective, the day/night luminaries appear to rise up the Eastern horizon, curve peaking high overhead, and then sink below the Western horizon. They do not escape to the underside of the Flat-Earth as one might imagine, but rather rotate concentric clockwise circles around the circumference from tropic to tropic.  ~ Eric Dubay.

Sun Over horizon on Flat Earth explained

“Although the Sun is at all times above and parallel to the Earth’s surface, he appears to ascend the firmament from morning until noon, and to descend and sink below the horizon at evening. This arises from a simple and everywhere visible law of perspective. A flock of birds, when passing over a flat or marshy country, always appears to descend as it recedes; and if the flock is extensive, the first bird appears lower, or nearer to the horizon than the last. The farthest light in a row of lamps appears the lowest, although each one has the same altitude. Bearing these phenomena in mind, it will easily be seen how the Sun, although always parallel to the surface of the Earth, must appear to ascend when approaching, and descend after leaving the meridian or noon-day position.” -Dr. Samuel Rowbotham, “Earth Not a Globe, 2nd Edition” (85)

Law of Perspective

“This law of Perspective meets us on every hand; and cannot be gainsaid.

If, in a straight line, we look at a frozen lake from a certain distance, we shall observe people who appear to be skating on their knees, but, if we approach sufficiently near, we shall see them performing graceful motions on their feet. Farther, if we look through a straight tunnel, we shall notice that the roof and the roadway below converge to a point of light at the end.

It is the same law which makes the hills sink, to the horizon, as the observer recedes, which explains how the ship’s hull disappears in the offing. I would also remark that when the sea is undisturbed by waves, the hull can be restored to sight by the aid of a good telescope long after it has disappeared from the naked eye, thus proving that the ship had not gone down behind the watery hill of a convex globe, but is still sailing on the level of a Plane sea.” -David Wardlaw Scott, “Terra Firma” (75)

“What can be more common than the observation that, standing at one end of a long row of lamp-posts, those nearest to us seem to be the highest; and those farthest away the lowest; whilst, as we move along towards the opposite end of the series, those which we approach seem to get higher, and those we are leaving behind appear to gradually become lower … It is an ordinary effect of perspective for an object to appear lower and lower as the observer goes farther and farther away from it.

Let any one try the experiment of looking at a light-house, church spire, monument, gas lamp, or other elevated object, from a distance of only a few yards, and notice the angle at which it is observed. On going farther away, the angle under which it is seen will diminish, and the object will appear lower and lower as the distance of the observer increases, until, at a certain point, the line of sight to the object, and the apparently uprising surface of the earth upon or over which it stands, will converge to the angle which constitutes the ‘vanishing point’ or the horizon; beyond which it will be invisible.” -Dr. Samuel Rowbotham, “Zetetic Astronomy, Earth Not a Globe!” (230-1)

Why A Ship Appears to Go Down Over the Horizon

  “Another favorite “proof” of ball-Earthers is the appearance from an observer on shore of ships’ hulls being obfuscated by the water and disappearing from view when sailing away towards the horizon. Their claim is that ship’s hulls disappear before their mast-heads because the ship is beginning its declination around the convex curvature of the ball-Earth.

Once again, however, their hasty conclusion is drawn from a faulty premise, namely that only on a ball-Earth can this phenomenon occur. The fact of the matter is that the Law of Perspective on plane surfaces dictates and necessitates the exact same occurrence. For example a girl wearing a dress walking away towards the horizon will appear to sink into the Earth the farther away she walks. Her feet will disappear from view first and the distance between the ground and the bottom of her dress will gradually diminish until after about half a mile it seems like her dress is touching the ground as she walks on invisible legs.

The same happens with cars speeding away, the axles gradually get lower and the wheels vanish until it appears as if the car is gliding along its body. Such is the case on plane surfaces, the lowest parts of objects receding from a given point of observation necessarily disappear before the highest.”  ~ Eric Dubay, Flat Earth Conspiracy

Clouds at distance appear to be going down on the horizon.

Same with the Sun. Yet it is really just following a circle away.

      Thanks for the clarification. I have an experiment that almost anyone can do, that might help understand the scenario you describe: earth (& planets) circling around the sun, which itself is moving (in some direction and fashion).

      If a person (Bob) was to take a ball attached to a string, with the other end of the string attached to a portable power drill. Held by a person standing in one place, the drill could be turned on, and the ball would circle around the drill chuck. A stationary observer near bob should see a ball traveling in a circle; an ordinary basic movement pattern.

      Now let the person with the drill begin walking down the sidewalk. A person walking behind them might still see a simple circle. However, a person standing across the street, should see the ball follow a much more complex pattern; like a screw thread, or perhaps helical pathway.

      So what do we have? the ball is always circling the drill at all times; yet the observed pattern at points away from the drill differs. This has to do with relative observation and relative motions involved. By walking, a second motion, independent to the drill motor rotating, becomes part of the multi-dimensional reality of other observers. What Bob sees is accurate, and what others see is also accurate, from their respective frames of reference.

      The compound motion is not simply a result of the circular force spinning the ball, just like something that orbits the sun. If the sun is also moving in some direction, it has no relation to the spinning (orbit) of the ball (earth). Separate actions are due to separate causes. A single over-arching action is not what leads to the effects observed by anyone besides Bob.

    “…that nothing is displaced as a body moves through a vacuum is instantly disproved by an observation of a comet’s tail.” Observing the tail suggests many more possibilities than vacuous wind, wherein the real reason for a comet’s tail is knowable and even observable. This is, in fact, a fairly good example of poor intuition, that to observe the tail must mean that matter is displaced precisely by its movement in a vacuum. It is an arbitrary conclusion, much like “a bullet being small must mean that it is harmless” is an arbitrary conclusion. Undisciplined reasoning is not useful to YOU. It is certainly not in defense of God — it is, in a sense, in offense to God and the truth. Again, you can understand a vacuum yourself, using a vacuum that you make yourself.

    So one should be able to observe the sun with a good telescope once we see the sun disappear because of the perspective, because the sun doesn’t go below the horizon but just gets further from the observer. Is this what you observe?

    As the sun moves to the west in a ‘circular’ direct on a flat earth it should not go anywhere near the horizon. For goodness sake the radius of the earth is only about 4,000 miles.
    I would have to say that suggesting the sun nearing the horizon and appearing to disappear as having something to do with the law of perspective is nonsense

      Brian, altho I agree with you, I do think that flat earth ststs say that the sun is only 5,000 miles overhead. The geometry using those numbers still gives us a fairly large angle from a viewer, let’s say, in the United States, to a setting sun, which means that you would never see the sun disappear. If it just moves away from the viewer it should appear smaller, as flat earthers tell us, but we have very powerful telescopes that should easily bring it back into view. I’ve yet to see any video made that does anything like this. How many pieces of real evidence do they need? That one should be a gimme.

        The answer is obvious, the sun has a lampshade. Lampshade-theory also explains how the sun can cast physically impossible shadows on the Earth’s surface. You may think the idea of a magic lampshade sounds absurd, but if you allow for a flying spotlight 5000 miles high circling above a flat Earth without a viable power source to explain its glowing or any explanation of its motive force, then you can’t discount the idea of a shape shifting lampshade, as you’ve long ago entered the realm of magical fantasy.

    Happy Birthday: 5,000 miles seems a bit close
    The sun ‘rises’ and causes a shadow which becomes increasingly shorter as midday approaches. The sun on a FE travels in a circle? Therefore as the shadow decreases it would/should also move in a circle opposing the sun’s circle. I don’t think it does because the sun travels in a straight line?

    • HappyBirthday July 30, 2017 at 11:43 pm Reply

      Brian, from all I’ve read about the flat earth, those who seem to have the most to say, write that the earth and sun are 5,000 miles from the earth, and they are some 300 miles in diameter. And that they both travel in a circuit around the circumference of the FE, but not along the edge (Antarctica), but on a circuit maybe halfway between the center (north pole) and the outer rim.

      I agree that the shadows that we see do not make sense with this scenario. The only places that the sun would be directly overhead are those along that particular circuit.

      But what I have never been given an explanation for is how a sun that is 5,000 over the earth and runs along a circuit and never “sets” can create night. We never see the sun shrinking into a dot, but it disappears as its full size over the horizon as it sets. And when you do the math using FE numbers, you get a considerable size angle from the POV of a viewer to the sun (what did i figure, 20 degrees?) at sunset if you live in the United States. That’s way too big of an angle to not be able to “bring it back” into view with a good telescope.

      So, once again, if any FE enthusiasts have a video of that phenomenon, similar to the ones I see posted with ships on the ocean, please post them.

      And, I would challenge anyone who is making the ships/ocean video with a telescope, to continue following that ship with your telescope. At some point, it will totally disappear, and it’s not because of the atmosphere obscuring the view. It’s from the curvature of the earth.

        HB – from the cartoonish “simulations” one sees of the sun above the FE, there is a common part where the sun’s path shifts between the FE versions of the equator and the 2 tropics, so that these latitudes get their 12 hours of day and night twice a year.

        However, they never can quite explain what causes these expanding and contracting shifts in the sun’s path. Or even the force needed to reverse between expansion and contraction (on an annual and everlasting time frame).

        Conservation of momentum? – who needs it!!!!

    I once took my girlfriend up in a hot air balloon to watch the Sun Set and we watched it disappear under the horizon. Your coin analogy only works if the camera/viewer is below the plain of the table/Earth. From my vantage point so far high up I should be able to see the Sun forever if it didn’t dip below the horizon. It would also get smaller and smaller but it does not. The next morning it rose in the East. How could it get from West to East while the sky is in total darkness? My friends in Australia can see the Sun when I cannot (while Skypping them). This would not be possible on a flat earth. As long as you are above the plain of the ground you should be able to see the Sun no matter how far away it is. This does not happen.

    If the sun disappears into the horizon from perspective then it would shrink into a dot. In the morning it would start as a dot and grow as it moved closer and shrink as it moved away. But in reality the size of the sun doesn’t change so it isn’t moving closer or farther away.

      Brian Johnston — you’re forgetting about the Law of Perspective which states that when objects recede away from an observer over the surface of the Earth they will only appear to fall below the horizon to people with an IQ greater than their shoe size.

      According to the Law of Perspective as the IQ of an observer approaches zero, the likelihood of stupidity-induced-hallucinations causing the observer to believe that objects are shrinking towards a point wher they inexplicably become invisible instead of seeing the object falling below the horizon increases to nearly 100 percent.

      Stars don’t disappear when you reach space.

      Photos of satellites, Earth and other planets and The Sun have their exposure times adjusted so that you can see the object being photographed which is much brighter than the stars. If the exposure time were adjusted to see stars the foreground object would look like a spotlight shining into the camera.

      This is a basic rule of photography, a single photo can’t have a very bright object and a very dim one next to each other without being doctored together from two separate photos.

      The human eye has greater dynamic range than any camera film or sensor available to consumers which makes this counterintuitive, but there’s no rule that says the universe is obligated to be intuitive to human beings.

    Learn. Basic. Physics. Go to the library, get a book. This isn’t worth dignifying with an answer because it is so clearly written by someone who never learned basic science. By basic, I mean, laws of gravity and inertia, their relation to mass, etc etc.. The very, very specific MATH. Things you can verify with simple intuitive experiments in your own backyard.

    It’s silly — it sounds silly — to argue against basic, proven, provable facts like the law of gravity. Opinions are one thing, but facts are another.

    Mt Ranier casting a shadow on clouds demonstrates that the sun is in fact lower in the sky at dawn.

    Hi,

    Just following up as I didn’t hear back from you, sorry to email you again. I noticed your page aplanetruth.info/17-if-a-flat-earth-why-does-the-sun-go-down/comment-page-1/ links to http://www.timeanddate.com. Unfortunately, that site isn’t very accessible for the sight impaired. Would you consider adding a link to a more accessible version like http://www.thetimenow.com which is WCAG 2.0 compatible?Date and Time – All Time Zones and Stuff

    Also, if you ever want to see how accessible a page is, I recommend wave.webaim.org. It is really helpful.

    Thanks,
    Shane Buck

    Ummm…. Your example is in no way related to your theory. Supposedly in a FE, the sun is hovering ABOVE us. In your example you placed a coin on a table and moved it horizontally away from you. This is in no way a valid explanation of the sun setting past the horizon. Try harder buddy.
