This is interesting someone mentioned a "DISH".
Because the absurd notion of the Earth shifted, continents shifted etc. would also mean that all Satellites would need to be re-positioned etc..
In other words, if there was really a "shift" as you say "tend towards to believe" there should also have been major outages of TV/internet, GPS, air traffic etc. due to geostationary satellites no positioned right anymore...let alone other VERY obvious signs.

The Indonesian earthquake produced a 3 % shift of the earth as did the 9.0 in Japan. I think this should explain why the earth has tilted on its axis. All I know is my patio now has enough sun to grow tomatoes, and that is all I really care about the subject. No Gov't conspiracy or any other wild tale. Just relax, maybe we will have a quake that will shift it back the other direction and give everyone something new to talk about.
For these two days, as the Sun sets on the grid, half the disk sits above and half below the horizon. My personal preference for photographs. But the day after May 30th (May 31), and the day before July 13 (July 12) also offer Manhattanhenge moments, but at sunset, you instead will find the entire ball of the Sun on the horizon.

Frankly I blame BUSH and his "No child left behind" for this post...
Yeah this is my first post and I am long long time lurker and I don't mean to be rude but I watch the sun daily I photograph the sun periodically. The last time my kid and I were on a sun dial for the month of June and we made our shadows be the hour hand the time was completely correct.
So my theory is somehow you and your Dad have translated to EARTH 626 where the tilt of the earth is different (allowing the sun to appear different, cause everyone knows it would be the earth not the sun that would cause this). And in some way you are still able to post silly threads on good ole EARTH PRIME (where I live and the sun is normal as it has been for ages). That or you both were hallucinating...
These posts and others like them are why I have decided to no longer lurk. A lack of basic science skills or at the very least scientific reasoning and not opinions or theories based on conjecture, speculation, ignorance or just plain superstition sadden me. No proof, no way period.

ok, what i don't get is this. If the sun did change from spot, how come my GOTO telescope can automatically find the sun?
Simple, because its in the place where its aught to be!
Try to debunk that!

I understand that it sounds insane, and that it is scientifically impossible.
But, I cannot explain why I have noticed the sun being far more northerly at sunrise than it ever has been, in my life.
I have no logical explanation for this, I'm afraid.
