( ~ Ed. When you look into the sky do you see the Moon move across the sky at night? Yes. How about the Sun. Yes. Oh, but wait, Astrophyscists ALL tell us that the Moon is really moving but what we see the Sun doing is only….wait for it….”Apparent”, not really what is happening.
My take is that when the Jesuit/Vaticans and the Royal Institute of Astronomy collaborated to sell the Round Spinning Ball heliocentric theory they knew they could not fool the people of the time from simple observation, so they never bothered to change to and “Earthrise” and “Earth Set” ..would alert too many of the time. Yet once a generation is sold a story, the lie becomes much easier to be accepted.)
Sunrise and sunset are steeped in Egyptian AstroTheology and there is a very simple explanation why the sun does not “rise” or “set” but rather moves “away” and “toward” us. That mechanism is the perspective of the eye at distance as it converges to a point. Contrary to accepted pseudoscience, the eye’s vision at a distance is “finite” and at distance the vanishing point is the farthest your eyes can see (less atmospheric haze, smog, et, al)
And here’s the sun doing the exact same thing….
And here’s an excellent video on the “horizon line” coming into focus once a zoom is applied. Keep in mind that the camera is stationary both horizontally and vertically as we would be as observers.
