FINALLY -- disclosure: "STARS revolve around the Earth"


Load up the clip, then with your mouse crank up the video marker from left to right. As you can all see this particular star is rising on your screen along with the moon suggesting that it is in fact revolving around the earth only slower then the moon is, and therefore, at some point the moon will over take and eclipses the star. This is known in our little scientific circle as "Occultation."

Maybe the Greeks were right. Maybe the sun, moon, stars, planets revolve around the Earth.

Aristarchus around 270 BC derived the Moon's distance from the duration of a lunar eclipse (Hipparchus later found an independent method). It was commonly accepted in those days that the Earth was a sphere (although its size was only calculated a few years later, by Eratosthenes ). Astronomers also believed that the Earth was the center of the universe, and that Sun, Moon, planets and stars all orbited around it. It was only natural, then, that Aristarchus assumed that the Moon moved in a large circle around Earth.

That is the theory of GEOcentricity... as opposed to heliocentricity. Perhaps there is a truth somewhere in between.

Wouldn't the star dissapear behind the moon because the moon is rotating with the earth?

Yep, that's it! The universe revolves around the earth. If so, the universe is in deep doo-doo. Because the earth has gone insane.

The star revolves around the earth is what the video is showing.

The star does disappear behind the moon in the video, but more importantly is that the star is revolving with the moon, only a little slower. Thanks.

No, the earth's rotation causes the stars to rise is what the video is showing. The moon orbits the earth, so it moves against the background stars slowly even as the earth's rotation causes it to rise and set.

EPIC FAIL!

If the earth was rotating then we would see the stars rising low and setting low like the moon and the sun. But we don't. We would see all the stars bigger when rising like we see the moon BIG bloodshot RED, ha,ha,ha, no little man! EPIC FAIL.

So, are you now admitting that your dumbass post last week about the moon not moving in front of any stars is wrong?

Re: FINALLY -- disclosure: "STARS revolve around the Earth"
IF the "stars" that we see are actually starships docked in a specific location that would mimic the stars, then what does that mean?
does your video actually give some proof for this?
i hear what you're saying, but i am also remembering what some have told us. that there are many many ships orbitting our earth and disguising themselves as stars in our sky.

Is the camera moving very slowly perhaps on a mechanical arm?
