For most people, the Moon orbital speed of 2,290 mph and the Earth’s spin of 1,037 mph is enough to accept that the path of the eclipse in August will travel eastwards.
Funny enough, this is also what NASA “scientists” and other “scientists” outside NASA also say.For them, we are so dumb, that there is no point for them to actually say more.And there is a very good reason NOT to say more, because the more they would say, the clearer would be that the August eclipse path cannot, ever, go eastwards, but westwards.
To keep this explanation as simple as possible, we need to know the basics.And those are that the Sun rays are parallel, the Moon blocks the Sun rays, and those that are in the totality path, the Moon will fully block the parallel Sun rays.
In order for a total solar eclipse to take place, on Earth, the angle between the Sun, the Moon and the Moon’s shadow totality must be ZERO.Basically, during totality, the Sun, the Moon and the Moon’s shadow on Earth are on a perfect straight line.The slightest deviation from a straight line will result in a partial solar eclipse.
In other words, there must be a straight line between a point on Earth surface, the Moon and the Sun, as long as the totality lasts.Imagine a line between Salem, OR, the Moon and the Sun, and another line between Charleston, SC, the Moon and the Sun.
Because the Moon MUST be part of both these lines, in order to have the totality in Salem and Charleston, the Moon MUST travel, in its orbit around the Earth, a distance that is proportionally equal to the distance between Salem and Charleston, and that distance can be calculated.
Both Salem and Charleston are on a sphere, right? If this is true, we can calculate the angle between these two cities.The distance between Salem and Charleston, by air, is roughly 2,430 miles.The Earth’s circumference is 24,901 miles.The duration of the eclipse between Salem and Charleston is roughly 83 minutes.In 83 minutes, Charleston will spin, with the Earth, with a speed of roughly 780 mph (or 13 miles per minute).During those 83 minutes, Charleston position will be about 1,000 miles East from where it was when the eclipse hit Salem.
In order for the Moon to eclipse both Salem and Charleston, when the Sun rays are parallel, it will have to travel, in orbit, a distance proportionally equal to the distance between Salem and Charleston (2,430 miles) plus roughly 1,000 miles to compensate for Earth’s spin, which is roughly 3,400 miles.
Since the Earth’s circumference is 24,901 miles, the angle formed by a line between Earth’s center and Salem, when the eclipse hits Salem, and a line between Earth’s center and Charleston, when the eclipse hits Charleston, will have to be equal to the angle formed by a line between Earth’s center, Salem and Moon’s center, when the eclipse hits Salem, and a line between Earth’s center, Charleston and Moon’s center, when the eclipse hits Charleston.
3,400 miles, the distance between Salem and Charleston, during 83 minutes Earth’s spin, represents roughly 13.6% of the Earth’s circumference, which is also a 13.6% of a 360 degree circle, which is roughly 49 degrees.The Moon must also complete a 49 degrees on its orbit, in order for the eclipse to go eastwards and to travel between Salem and Charleston, for roughly 83 minutes.
It cannot be other way.The Sun rays are parallel, and the Moon must totally block the Sun for this August eclipse to work on the spinning globe Earth.
But here is the problem : the Moon completes a 49 degree arc on its orbit in roughly 87 hours…while the duration of totality between Salem and Charleston is roughly 83 minutes.
All the values I used are not the exact values, but they are very close approximations.It really doesn’t matter, because the discrepancies between the eclipse and the heliocentric model are IMMENSE.We are talking about the Moon traveling 83 minutes during the eclipse over U.S. versus the Moon traveling in orbit for 87 hours for this eclipse to work.
In the heliocentric model the Sun rays are parallel, the Moon must totally block the Sun during the August eclipse and the Earth is spinning.The totality cannot work unless the angle between the Sun, the Moon and the eclipsed points on Earth is ZERO.And this means that the Moon must travel, during the 83 minutes eclipse duration between Salem and Charleston, a distance on its orbit equivalent to 87 hours.
I can be off by 1% in my calculations, but it doesn’t matter.If it’s 83 minutes and 86 hours, or 87 minutes and 85 hours, it really doesn’t matter.
The difference is too big.Like 60 times bigger.
The upcoming total solar eclipse on 21st, this month, does not work on the heliocentric model.When you take into consideration everything, not only the Moon’s orbital speed and Earth’s spin speed, solar eclipses go against reality.
