What about the sunrise/sunset?
We get this question a lot in FE. To understand the answer, throw away all notions of a huge blazing gas ball sun, central to our system.
The sun is a small, mobile, local light. It makes a circuit across the sky every day. When it goes too far away, it disappears into the line of convergence, or horizon.
The best illustration I’ve seen so far is from @VerumBellator1 :
Properly understood, the sun doesn’t “set” or “rise.” It advances and retreats. No spinning globe required.
One more illustration that kinda helps too:
Thanks for reading! If you have a better way of explaining sun advance/retreat, please leave your idea in the comments!
