Red Moon
« on: May 08, 2019, 06:02:52 PM »
First let me apologize, I read the FEwiki about Red Moon, but my limited capacity of understanding did not grasp exactly what was said there.
Based on that, I humble request further explanations.

The FE wiki:

"The Lunar Eclipse is red because the light of the sun is shining through the edges of the Shadow Object which passes between the sun and moon during a Lunar Eclipse. The red tint occurs because the outer layers of the Shadow Object are not sufficiently dense. The Sun's light is powerful enough to shine through the outer layers of the Shadow Object, just as a flashlight is powerful enough to shine through your hand when you put it right up against your palm."

My doubts is in reference of physical positioning. 
See, I understand the explanation about a shadow object being positioned between the Sun and the Moon during a Lunar Eclipse.   

Also, the red tint is caused by the outer layer of the shadow object not being sufficient dense. 
So, it is like a semi-transparent shadow being projected?  But in what color? Red?  it means the shadow object is red in essence? like a red acrylic under the sun, projects a redish shadow on floor? Is that it? 

But what really made me confused is, if the physical positioning; first the Sun high above all, then the Shadow Object in the middle, then the Moon lower of the three, then we down here, everything aligned in a straight line.  How can we see the Moon illuminated by the Sun, if the Sun is above the Moon?   Okay, I guess the Moon is transparent. 

But still, why on all Moon Eclipses, caused by this shadow object, we don't see its redish outer layer right on the edge between light and dark on the eclipsed Moon everytime?  and worse, why when this shadow object just crosses in front of the Sun, without Moon involved, we don't see its dark projection on Earth's anywhere, with the redish ring around it? 

My big lack of understanding is related to the real time positioning.
See, all Moon Eclipses happen when the Sun is not on the sky.  All of them happen after sunset, during the night or before sunrise.  So, how the Sun higher than everything else, over the other side of the flat earth disc (it is night here), can project its light all over the north pole (I thought the sun projects a limited size downwards spot), the solar light then reach and illuminate the Moon (over us in this side of the disc), but now the Shadow Object that creates the eclipse is where? above the Moon? below the Moon?, between the Sun and Moon or between Moon and us?  Are the Moon and the Shadow Object (with a semi-transparent redish outer layer) thin discs or spherical object?  If the Moon is a flat disc as the earth, how can I see it round in the sky in the East or West and not an elipse due the angle of view?  If it is spherical, how it is fully transparent? 

What could really help me to calculate and reach conclusions is to know finally what are the altitudes and sizes of the Moon, Sun and the shadow object.

I am really confused.

I haven't seen any evidence of a shadow object, so it would be helpful if some were presented.

Earth is not flat.

Yeah, TLDR Sandy.  He also believes Jupiter is flat despite the eye's rotational pattern matching that of a spheriod planet.
