Don’t Laugh at Poor Icarus…

A couple weeks ago I was thinking to myself, “Hmmm, if the earth was flat and the sun/moon weren’t millions of miles away but actually quite close and traveling along circular paths, then wouldn’t we be able to see the sun appearing to get bigger/smaller as it went across the sky, since the function of perspective would be at work?”

Then I found this video, and wouldn’t you know it, in all these time-lapse shots of the sun, what is it that we actually observe…….? 😉

Simply amazing.
