    So, @ 00:46 you see the sun going down behind the horizon, not shrinking, while the music talks about “the sun going down, and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round.”

    This makes it easy to conclude the sun is disappearing below the horizon, by its rotation, as commonly explained.

    Thanks for clarifying this matter in such a clear way.

      “you see” the Sun going down…”this makes it easy to conclude the Sun disappearing BY ITS ROTATION..” What does this mean SG Today?

      So, the earth rotating proves the Sun is “going down”…

      Where is up on a round ball, Sir?

      do you just make this stuff up?

    JWL- Forgive my poor form of the language, not using a proper antecedent. I should have made clear a reference to the song lyrics when they said; “see the world spinning round.”

    From what I read of the FE model, the (very bright) sun somehow fades into the distance (to black!), without any detailed description of how that kind of movement would actually occur. Back in ancient times, Romans (I think) thought chariots carried the sun across the sky. I presume FE doesn’t have chariots, but what does it have regarding movement?

    Children of all ages riding a merry-go-round will see their parents appear and disappear from view, due to the rotation. The parents are not in any sense moving; relative motion produces the visual result.

    A more straight-forward example is the visual in the posted video, of the sun going down.

    The same effect is seen in star-trail photos, and the nightly position changes of constellations. Something is clearly moving. If not the world spinning, then there are a lot of visual objects observed, and their motions would each need to be explained.

    The night sky is filled with a variety of relative motion patterns for the various types of “celestial” objects above. Some are more oriented around nightly viewing, some are oriented around annual repetition. The patterns seen over the equator are quite different, and also those from southern-most observations. More explanations needed; the list keeps growing.

    So no, I don’t make stuff up. I observe carefully, and consider explanations that are presented. So far, I don’t really know of any FE explanations that aren’t merely videos or superficial descriptions. I’d be pleased to read about the mechanical nature of the FE model, but don’t have a site to visit that I know of.

    Any help or advice, and I’d look into it.
