The Motionless Globe Eclipse
Celestial Phenomena Is Best Represented With A Motionless Globe Based Model
The motionless globe based model easily explains the total solar eclipse and why the path of the eclipse proceeds west to east.
Total solar eclipse shadow exaggerated.

Obviously The Heliocentric Model is Not Needed
"Ptolemy presented a useful tool for astronomical calculations in his Handy Tables, which tabulated all the data needed to compute the positions of the Sun, Moon and planets, the rising and setting of the stars, and eclipses of the Sun and Moon. Ptolemy's Handy Tables provided the model for later astronomical tables or zījes. In the Phaseis (Risings of the Fixed Stars), Ptolemy gave a parapegma, a star calendar or almanac, based on the hands and disappearances of stars over the course of the solar year."
"As an indication of exactly how good the Ptolemaic model is, modern planetariums are built using gears and motors that essentially reproduce the Ptolemaic model for the appearance of the sky as viewed from a stationary Earth. In the planetarium projector, motors and gears provide uniform motion of the heavenly bodies. One motor moves the planet projector around in a big circle, which in this case is the deferent, and another gear or motor takes the place of the epicycle."

The Motionless Globe Model Has The Most Explanatory Power
Despite all historical hype to the contrary, the motionless, geocentric globe model is the one model that represents what we naturally experience and the one that needs no ad hoc guesswork. It reproduces reality in a very simple way that needs no extra explanation as this is what we naturally witness. We can go outside and watch the celestial bodies rise and set, arcing over head as they do so. We might never know what these bodies really are, but we do know how they seem to move overhead.
We can look over large bodies of water and see the tops of buildings in exactly the manner a globe model predicts. Ships disappear at sea as advertised. There is no real reason to believe the world flat or that it moves at all. Despite all university propaganda, there is no real experiment that can be done that can show the Earth orbits or even spins and despite international space program claims to the contrary, there is no logical reason to buy into any of the mainstream cosmology at all. The mainstream subject of astrophysics is nothing but imaginary fantasy backed with illogically applied, peer reviewed math. There is simply no reason to believe any of it as the space programs of the world are nothing but the result of Hollywood and stage magician special effects work. These programs exist to act as the medium for nuclear annihilation which is itself another governmental promoted propaganda fantasy. The Four Allegorical Horsemen of Biblical Apocalypse have always been used as proverbial carrots and sticks to keep the peasants in their place, toiling away on the feudal animal farm.
Heliocentric Flaws Lead To A Ballooning Multiverse of Black Holy Nonsense
There are many fallacious claims made about the geocentric globe model that simply do not stand up to scrutiny. The mainstream cosmological model is a joke that has "evolved" so far from the Sun centered Universe of Fixed Stars that Newton and company believed in, that these minds would find the current patchwork cosmology quite insane and they would be right to do so. The mainstream model is clearly the more complicated and fantastic model. It is painfully obvious as the history of modern heliocentric theory clearly illustrates. If Copernicus was right, Kepler and Newton need not exist. If they were correct Einstein would not be needed, and on and on until we end up with a Big Banged up patchwork of conflicting ideas sold as science. The mainstream model relies on people not truly understanding it at all. If more people actually took the time and learned about subjects in correct order, from beginning to end, from past to present, and in context, instead of reading textbooks and hanging on every world people like Neil degrasse Tyson have to say, more minds would see what is obvious; the mainstream model has to have us focus on the model and not on what we actually observe. We have to go along with the idea that galaxies are collections of solar systems and we have to accept things like the mainstream explanation for red shifts as proof the Universe is magically expanding like a balloon despite the fact that we witness fixed stars. We are supposed to buy into billions of years of astronomy when all we really have is a record of a few hundred years of observation and a whole lot of speculation and obvious fantasy. Thing like the precession of the equinoxes and the speed of light are just ideas and are no more real than Superman.
"III. The determination of the zones of visibility of the eclipses of the Sun"
"The method outlined in the Almagest will suffer almost no change until the seventeenth century. Nevertheless, the famous Arab astronomer Al- Battani (middle of the IXth -929) concludes to the variation of the apparent diameter of the Sun, and therefore to the possibility of annular eclipse of the Sun. Copernicus (1473-1543), in his De revolutionibus orbium Coelestium published in 1543, will take almost point by point the method of Ptolemy, without improvements made. A comprehensive study showed that this method was able to detect virtually all solar eclipses, only the eclipses of faint magnitude affecting polar regions, escaped the investigation of the Ancients. From the XVIth century, there has been an increase in the publications of ephemerides in Europe, all providing very properly solar eclipses and their visibility. There are also, since the Middle Ages, special tables that predict eclipses very long in advance. The work of Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), and of Kepler (1571-1630), will only increase the accuracy of the theories of the Sun and the Moon; this quest for precision will only grow after Newton and the birth of celestial mechanics."
The Myth of The Complicated Ptolemaic Model Revealed: Recycling Heliocentric Promoted Epicycle Lies
"According to one school of thought in the history of astronomy, minor imperfections in the original Ptolemaic system were discovered through observations accumulated over time. It was mistakenly believed that more levels of epicycles (circles within circles) were added to the models to match more accurately the observed planetary motions. The multiplication of epicycles is believed to have led to a nearly unworkable system by the 16th century, and that Copernicus created his heliocentric system in order to simplify the Ptolemaic astronomy of his day, thus succeeding in drastically reducing the number of circles.
As it turns out, a major difficulty with this epicycles-on-epicycles theory is that historians examining books on Ptolemaic astronomy from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance have found absolutely no trace of multiple epicycles being used for each planet. The Alfonsine Tables, for instance, were apparently computed using Ptolemy's original unadorned methods. Another problem is that the models themselves discouraged tinkering. In a deferent-and-epicycle model, the parts of the whole are interrelated. A change in a parameter to improve the fit in one place would throw off the fit somewhere else. Ptolemy's model is probably optimal in this regard. On the whole it gave good results but missed a little here and there. Experienced astronomers would have recognized these shortcomings and allowed for them."
