I was wrong, but I learned a lot about the solar model.
I had three articles about the solar eclipse posted. I had thought I had found a demonstrable problem with the eclipse in the context of the heliocentric model of the solar system. I spent the last two days researching and even computer 3d modeling and animating the problem to come to the conclusion that for the most part the heliocentric model and the west to east viewing path of the total solar eclipse seems to basically work as claimed. When I modeled the Earth, Moon and Sun in proportion and to scale, with distance being taken into account, the effect worked from west to east as advertised. And it occurred in the four or so hours it is supposed to. Of course there are other demonstrable problems with mainstream cosmology and I think I might focus some time on going back through earlier posts to see if I can simplify some of that information and content down into more easily digestible form.
I yanked the total solar posts because I'd rather not have a series of incorrect articles clogging up the blog. If there are problems with the eclipses, they are not so easily demonstrated. I think it wiser to stick with the more easily communicated and provable problems with mainstream science and culture. As it stands now, I'd say the Flat Earth You Tube Channel content regarding this topic is no where near as valuable as doing one's own research into this subject. Self education takes effort and time, and along the way one will make mistakes.
A Totally Alchemical American Solar Eclipse Post Script:
The August 21, 2017 eclipse.
In Allegorical Terms It Is The August Alchemical Marriage of Apollo and Artemis In The House of Leo
On August 21: The Moon Races The Sun
The Moon will rise first and will also transit first but the Sun is faster and overtakes the Moon, setting 6 minutes earlier after passing the Moon during the eclipse. My point is we can model the bodies so they both seem to orbit in the same direction or we can model them so they seem to move in opposite orbital directions. We can model a geocentric world or a heliocentric one. Eclipses alone, would not seem to be easily used to discern which theory or model makes more sense and better describes reality. A more thorough and complete understanding of the subject would be needed for that.
