how can a Sun produce a “hot spot” on the Ocean from 93 million miles away???
~ Credit to My Perspective, and thanx.
The Sun is said to be 93 million miles away. At that distance, light would be greatly diffused and the ray beam, spread and wide, yet that is exactly the opposite we observe when looking at the Sun filtered through clouds or water. Why? A: Because the Sun is only a few thousand miles above us, not such beyond comprehension distances of tens of millions of miles away. This is also why the Sun feels these days like a hot spot on your skin (that and the fact we’ve blown a whole in the Ionosphere allowing deadly UVB rays to penetrate the Earth)
