Why The Stars Are Not Light Years Away

Why do the stars and moon seem to move in unison together across the sky, at the same rate without changing relative position to one another?

Remember, in the heliocentric model, the moon orbits the Earth from West to East at 2288mph , the opposite direction to the sun. The ball earth rotates West to East, and therefore the motion parallax with the distant stars should be greatly exaggerated, and yet, this is not what we see.

Not being one to take someone else’s video or a photo as any sort of evidence for reality, I decided to try and capture this motion myself. It’s crap! but proved the point to me

The one above is SO much better, but here’s the moon and stars moving together. This can of course be tested by anyone:

The stars move in unison:

Motion parallax is the same observation we can make from a moving train, or other vehicle. The foreground will move considerably faster than the background, this is common knowledge. The trees by the train track will speed past faster than the mountains in the distance. Here’s a quick insight

What is Motion Parallax

So consider the diagram above with the hound as the moon, the shed as the planets, and the trees as the distant fixed stars. Let’s look at some (claimed) distances for these celestial objects

Moon – 237,000 miles (according to Kubrick)

Planets – Mars is 249 million miles (according to Halley’s Diurnal Parallax method)

Stars – Nearest, 25 trillion miles (according to complete assumptive guesswork)


With blinkers on (and without any other celestial bodies as reference), I could actually buy that the stars are trillions of miles away, and we are the ones spinning – and that we’d never see any parallax between the stars. However, this isn’t the case, as we have the moon and so-called planets within our immediate proximity, in order to provide frames of reference. With these local frames of reference we should easily be able to determine motion parallax  – except, we can’t, don’t, and never have seen this parallax.

This is what things should look like if the spinning ball earth theory was anywhere close to reality



Occam’s razor

You see, in order for the stars, sun and moon to move in unison across the sky, as we see,  it can only really mean one thing. They are all on the same, or similar planes. ie. if a log cabin was moving as fast as the trees in the background from a train, then it would be logical to presume that the log cabin was at a similar distance away as the trees in the background.


Does it not stand to reason, that if the sun, moon and stars move at a similar rate, then it’s  logical to presume the sun, moon & stars are all on a similar plane and therefore a similar distance away?

Halley first conceived the idea of parallax, but his premise was severely flawed from the outset

    I can’t off-hand think of an explanation. What is normally the explanation given? Surely the question has been asked many times before.

    I’d wondered too, if there are so many billions more stars, why the night sky isn’t completely white, or nearly so, rather than just showing a countable amount to our eyes.

    In our experience here on earth do we have any light sources that travel exceptionally great distances? For instance, for the moon to be reflecting sunlight, and yet viewable over 200,000 miles away – think of any corresponding reflective surface on earth that transmits light so far, including sunlight. Do we have any reflective panels that can be seen for thousands of miles away? Maybe we do. Just some questions. But it would seem if the moon’s surface is so reflective that it would have blinded the astronauts who walked on it, and in their photos it looks a dull gray like ash or gravel.

    Thanks for the comment, good points.
    They will have an explanation for everything, but it will involve assumption and belief at some point.
    I don’t know of a light source that travels great distances, but they are all governed by the inverse square law of light, which is another reason for me to think they are not that far away. There are similar calculations and formulas to determine the luminosity of the moon (It would have been blinding) and fact that the stars would encompass the whole sky.

    Have you tried performing the moonlight temperature test? After doing this several times now, I can only conclude the moon is not reflecting the sun’s rays at all, but somehow generating it’s own light with amazing properties. Check it out and thanks again

      I’ve been meaning to try that test, just haven’t been to the hardware store recently looking for thermometers. I’d heard too that moonlight has a “putrefying effect,” so I wonder if anyone has tested that.

      I’d also wondered too if the starlit sky has an effect on temperatures – they are suns far away, after all. But I suppose they are too far away, or too small, for that.
