Science & Alternative Science / Re: Proof that anyone can do at home

As you may have heard, SpaceX is putting a lot of satellites in a now earth orbit for their starlink internet system.  Nasa wants you to help document the light pollution of the satellites using an app.  I understand that Nasa can't be trusted, let alone their app, but there is a way to test this at home without their bias.  If anyone has an old film camera, all you need to do is do a long exposure of the night's sky on a clear night and we can see what's going on once and for all.  I don't have a film camera, but if any of you do, I'd be very interested in see what unfolds!

Why would you need a film camera for that? Any decent digital camera will allow you to set a long enough exposure.

I'd say the difference is the (relatively) simple model of a spinning globe earth orbiting a distant sun with a moon orbiting it and with the axis of spin inclined does explain observations pretty well. It explains night and day, seasons, the way the celestial objects move in the night sky, eclipses. The FE model has to explain all these things using different and unexplained phenomena. The angular size of the moon and sun should constantly vary in your model for example, but it doesn't.

The angular size of the moon and sun do vary in a globe earth model, and it does for example accurately predict if a solar eclipse is going to be total, or annular when the angular size of the moon is slightly smaller.

Of course the variation is barely noticeable for the naked eye, and it varies much less than would be expected in a FE model, unless you bend the laws of optics to match the observation.
