Measuring the Sun

Measuring the Sun: a sun shining through the clouds

This article was prepared and written by @rokro11, not Stacey McStationary, and is a guest article appearing on this site.  If you have any questions or comments you may contact @rokro11 on Twitter or leave a comment below.

The last article was about measuring the moon.  This article will be about measuring the moon’s brother — the sun.  

Scientist, engineer, and educator – Eric Dollard, says nobody knows what the sun is.  He confirms the sun is not burning anything and it’s not related to fusion. He indicates the sun produces electromagnetic light and heat as a transformer.

The earth is stationary and the sun moves above the earth.  The speed of the sun changes from its slowest of about 952 mph, while it is above the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, to its fastest of about 1,038 mph, when it’s above the Equator.  

measure_sun_flat_earth.jpg provides the sun’s speed.  The speed of the sun from this site varies because the sun is not traveling at a constant speed.  Some may incorrectly think the sun is not moving and the earth is the one orbiting around the sun, while also spinning, and hurling through space – but it’s not.

To measure the sun, just like with the moon, its movement must first be captured on video. The ideal time to capture this video is when the sun is directly 90 degrees overhead to eliminate atmosplane refraction.  

On June 7, 2018 at 12:14 pm, I recorded the sun traveling from its leading edge to its trailing edge in 2:14 minutes.  The sun’s speed on this date, which is the sun speed relative to earth, is 957 mph.

957 mph divided by 60 minutes, is 15.95 miles per minute.  Take 15.95 and divide that by 60 seconds to arrive at .2658 miles per second.  

Since the sun crossed itself in 2:14 minutes, this amounts to 134 total seconds.  How wide is the sun? It is 35.62 miles wide. (134 second x .2658 miles per second).

Wait a minute!  Didn’t Nasa and others report the sun’s size is 864,337 miles wide?  It’s time to figure out that both the moon and sun appear about the same size because they actually are roughly the same size.  

I didn’t use the heliocentric model to determine the above measurements because that model is not accurate.  I’m not going to assume the earth is flat and stationary; I’m going to let NASA and other organizations make that declaration in regard to the flat and stationary earth.  If you have any questions concerning NASA and other organizations that confirm earth is flat and stationary, you should direct your concerns to the appropriate organization, and not to the article’s author.

See the following confirmations by NASA, US Army, MIT, and Princeton University, in which their tests, models, aircraft, UAVs, radar, and other topics refer to the actual flat and non-rotating earth or the assumption of operation on an actual flat and non-rotating earth. 

Official Reports Referring to a Flat Non-Rotating Earth:

NASA in 1972: The method is limited, however, to application where a flat, nonrotating earth may be assumed. (Pg. 2)

NASA in 1978: The earth is flat and non-rotating.  (Pg. 14)

NASA in 1988: “This report derives and defines a set of linearized system matrices for a rigid aircraft of constant mass, flying in a stationary atmosphere over a flat, nonrotating earth.” (Pg, 36)

NASA in 1993: Lastly, the equations of motion for the zeroth-order problem of flight in a vacuum over a Flat Earth are presented. (Pg. 32)

The Army Research Laboratory: In its title, Propagation of Electromagnetic Fields Over Flat Earth, (2001)

MIT in its Abstract, “Three targeting methods were considered: assuming a Flat Earth…” (2006)

Routledge Taylor/Francis Group, for MIT, via Princeton, reports  a flat, non-rotating Earth even if the trajectory is plotted on a round Earth. (2006) (pg. 3)

In my Measuring the Moon article, the moon’s size was determined to be about 34 miles wide. The measurements relating to the sun have determined the sun is about the same size of the moon, at 35.5 miles wide. Both the sun and moon move East to West over our flat and stationary earth and at almost the same speed of over 2 minutes to cross themselves. Do the sun and the moon look the same size? Of course they do. A mile or two of variance is not noticeable in celestial bodies which are both less than 4,000 miles away.

Nasa misled the world beginning in the late 1960s by faking the moon landings 6 times. Nothing gets to space but in order for NASA to exist and remain relevant to collect $52,000,000 per day, they have to lie about what they can do.  Although they have lied about many things, they cannot lie about everything – that has been pointed out and referenced above.

Is the sun closer to 35.5 miles wide or is it closer to 865,000 miles wide?  Is the information Nasa provides about the size of the sun reasonable at 865,000 miles wide when both the moon and sun appear about the same size?  

That’s something you need to determine on your own. I can provide the facts, but I can’t make people who are unwilling to accept reality understand those facts.


  1. Great work @rokro👍 determining the diameter, once people observe themselves that the sun is no where near 93million miles, neither is it some burning gas as they’re educated to believe, they can repeat your experiments & come to same factual conclusion; on our Flat & Stationary Earth!
    Interesting piece, even had a little NASA humor😉
