Sunsets at different distances
« on: October 07, 2019, 02:13:03 PM »
Hello, if my understanding of the related wiki topics is correct, I don't understand how the sun sets at a greater distance in the southern hemisphere.
Given two points at the same longitude but one on the southern hemisphere and the other on the northern hemisphere at the same distance from the equator, one would expect that the length of the longest day of the year would be the same (this can be verified by multiple time and date sources).
If the sun sets at the same time in both of these places in their respective summer solstices, the sun must set at the same angle from this longitudinal line.
There is however an issue with this, since the distance between the sun and an observer at these points is different depending on which hemisphere you're on. If the electromagnetic acceleration theory is to be believed, the sun must set at a constant distance everywhere you look from.
So how can this be explained?
