  1. https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/weird-news/bird-seen-frozen-mid-air-22359476 That it?
  2. And your first statement is completely wrong anyway - we can SEE 100% of the visible spectrum of light - hence its name! But even so, we can certainly detect/perceive everything else on the rest of the spectrum - the part you are probably referring to. This discussion concerns things within the visible spectrum. As for your argument you could apply that to every single exchange on this forum and it would still be wrong. Don't worry about starving children, just develop your consciousness save the causation for mystical beings in other realities.
  3. @zArk I told you quite specifically that your video had numerous errors in it. But the one you keep harping on about concerns the duration being 5hrs. Now why did you not double check this? I just did and your source is completely wrong! The shadow arrived on the surface at 16.48 UT and left at 20.02 UT - duration 3hrs 14 minutes. To clarify, your video maker has made the colossal blunder of taking the first viewing time of the partial eclipse at the most Northern latitude and the last viewing time of the partial eclipse on the most Southern latitude! Quite clearly next to each point it shows the start and end of the shadow duration! See "Start of total eclipse" at point 1 and "End of total eclipse" at point 2. To put that into perspective - it is like taking the sunrise in England and the Sunset in Thailand and concluding that the daylight figures don't add up! Clearly the duration of the shadow cast on the Earth is well within limits of the motions involved. Now what? Are you going to ignore this or acknowledge you were wrong?
  4. You blind? It is clearly spinning in both. Here's another: https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a004500/a004579/eclipse_flyaround_360p30.mp4 It is together. The problem is you and the flatties not reality. The "model" you show is riddled with errors. I have pointed some out to you and you have ignored them. Serious question, please answer: What is the total time the Moon shadow was on the Earth from West to East, hours and minutes? Your source for this please.
  5. Doubtful, they're much bigger and easy to observe - you can land on them analyse them and watch their variances. No need for Mr rolly eyes.

  7. This doing the rounds : https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-uk-troops-given-insect-repellent-citriodiol-as-part-of-enhanced-protection-11978318 Can't wait for large scale manufacture of citriodiol to be mass sprayed everywhere.
  8. Who told you that? Enoch? Do you think he might have been pulling your leg.
  9. Sure, but not when it is new. The best I could find was even less than this but needed numerous techniques: http://www.astrophoto.fr/new_moon_2010april14.html#:~:text=Thierry Legault - World record %3A the,New Moon - April 14 2010&text=This is the first image,this instant being exactly zero "From the shooting site (Montfaucon, France, 44°41'52"N, 1°34'30"E, altitude 300m), the angular separation between the Moon and the Sun was only 4.55° (nine solar diameters). At this very small separation, the crescent is extremely thin (a few arc seconds at maximum) and, above all, it is drowned in the solar glare, the blue sky being about 400 times brighter than the crescent itself in infrared (and probably more than 1000 times in visible light). This explains that it has never been observed visually or even photographed until now. In order to reduce the glare, the images have been taken in close infrared and a pierced screen, placed just in front of the telescope, prevents the sunlight from entering directly in the telescope."
  10. We were already on topic - the OP references the Greenland ice sheet and historical variances are very relevant.
  11. @zArk Here is a good animation showing the way it produces the shadow - done to scale so watch in full screen. https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a004300/a004324/eclipse_oblique_360p30.mp4 and another showing the angle of totality getting more and more elongated: https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a004500/a004579/eclipse_flyaround_360p30.mp4 The moon, moving as it should, the Earth rotating as it should, the shadow as reported and as it should. You were wrong and your youtuber failed to incorporate the items I mentioned about the speed on a rotating circle being relative to the observer.
  12. NOT true on both accounts. A little derision perhaps, but caused by you and the other 2 ignoring long carefully written posts and responding with diversionary gobbleydegook. Mean words? Hells bells what are you a teddy bear? There was nothing more than gentle piss taking banter. This minor subject hasn't been "exhausted" - you just don't understand the dynamics involved and are listening to youtubers. For starters you are definitely playing some weird game by suggesting it isn't the Moon causing the eclipse! What causes a lunar eclipse? In your own time.
  13. Run along then. Thanks for ignoring the majority of virtually every post I made.
  14. Irrelevant. My diagram is just a basic illustration anyway but shows the same principle involved as per the speed variances.
  15. Gibberish and not even accurate how do 15 and 1/2 produce 14? All that anyone with intelligence needs is to know: 1. The speed of the Moon. 2. How this relates to various points on a globe as described on my roundabout diagram. 3. How far the Moon moves ACROSS the path of the disc in a given time. 4. How fast the Earth rotates at the given latitude and how this relates again to my roundabout analogy. All that and you have the model for computing speeds at latitude. Or you could pluck some youtube gibberish out of your bottom and put that up instead.
  16. Atmospheric scattering BY the Sun on the Earth. Dude! They are both only on eclipse day the Sun is no longer shining on the Moon. One of the dumbest statements you have made and there has been fierce competition. Why would the Moon have a bloody corona!? Why would you see a black disk in daylight!? Gibberish. The Moon is subject only to light reflected from the Earth. The Moon suddenly doesn't become anything. It looks black because it is contrasted against light from the Solar corona. The camera is able to use layering and increased light capture to show the Moon with earthshine. Are you deliberately playing the goat here? You cannot see the new moon during daylight. Earth shine is insufficient to illuminate it through the atmospheric scattering!! It's impossible to get through to somebody who has such poor understanding. It's too faint to be seen. Just like the stars!
  17. That is NOT what the Moon is doing. It is exactly the same as the diagram I used before The Moon is to all intents and purposes carving out a 5hr straight line at the quoted speed. It's shadow falls on The Earth again in a straight line, something like this: Now the total length of the arc is 143 degrees. That is 15,918 km. The Moon carves out a path equating to the blue line - that is a chord on a circle and equates to 12,083km. Show me YOUR maths! Failure of the flat earth "analysts"!
  18. No!! That isn't how photography works at all. It enables a wide aperture to be used and a fast ISO to capture more light. The atmospheric lights scattering is what occludes the visible Moon. When that disappears AND the Sun's direct light, there is just enough to capture the Moon with just it reflecting Earth shine. We're all in sphereland, some are just a little bit confused about it! The maths add up perfectly I demonstrated how your youtube dumbo was wrong and you basically ignored the entire post. Well duh. Not only that but the Moon has zero sunshine on it and there is atmospheric scattering. A day before the new Moon one photographer managed to capture the barest sliver of the crescent Moon - I shan't post it - your stock defence is to claim some sort of bollocks about everything being fake.
  19. Wow, you ignored virtually my whole post. Are you afraid? Will address this tomorrow when I get on my PC.
  20. Well duhhhh, the SUN is now no longer blasting light everywhere! Now effectively almost dark.
  21. This is exactly where your youtube flat earther is going wrong:. Two things: Number one is that the Moon orbits 5 degrees above and below the plane of the ecliptic, so the axial tilt of the Earth varies according to its orbit. Number 2 is all to do with relative speeds. For example, If you look at a roundabout spinning at 50mph at the edge and you are say 50 yards away, when you see the nearest point to you it is moving at 50mph. However at the left and right hand sides of the circle it is not, because although it is travelling 50mph, it is coming TOWARDS you. This relative speed varies for the entire visible semi-circle. https://www.vcalc.com/wiki/MichaelBartmess/Rotational+Speed+at+Latitude eg. Madras Oregon at 44.6 degrees is moving at 740mph If viewed from the equatorial plane. But since I have already proven that things move relatively slower when viewed sideways on(edge of the circle) its relative speed to the Moon is drastically different to that straight on. It is both affected by the axial tilt effectively giving the same effect vertically and the fact that we are seeing it on the edge of that circle coming towards us horizontally.
  22. Not by the naked eye it is too dim with no reflected light except Earthshine, against the Sun. But the path it takes and the times involved follow a 100% verifiable direction that takes it across the face of the Sun. No dear, it's not more likely. That is preposterous. You should really try to get out more. All the above could be detected by anyone, yet not astronomer disputes the way eclipses work - there's quite a few around the world Are you actually mental? Is this some sort of game you are playing? Sun and Moon. No. The Moon isn't visible because a) it is daylight b) it has no solar reflection c) it is competing with something 400,000 times brighter than a full moon. You should develop a stand up comedy routine, because on this subject you are actually taking the piss.
  23. https://www.lockhaven.edu/~dsimanek/flat/round-spin.htm Your question is like the one in Monty Python - what have the romans done for us?! There is so much proof it is monumental how you can arm wave it away. It involves a cast of millions and millions.
