A question I would like you to answer is why out of the blue are people commenting on the sun being weird different or out of place.People that don't even use a computer. I believe there is something to it I have yet come to a conclusion myself as of yet I am still looking for answers. The best theory so far is the atmosphere is hotter and bending the light more making it seem as though the sun has moved much like putting a stick in a pool of water makes the stick appear to bend.Still looking for answers.

Do you have a Fitness Trampette? Do you have a large Metal Sphere?
If you have answered yes to the above questions, place the Sphere in the Center of the Trampette.
See how the Sphere bends the Trampette? That is the same as the Sun in Space, according to Einstein.
Now get a coin. Set the coin rolling around Sphere. This is the Earth Orbiting the Sun. Keep watching.
The coin will slowly get closer to the Sun.
This my friends indicates that the Earth IS getting closer to the Sun which would explain why the Ice Caps are melting.
So if Einstein is right in his Theory, it blows this Thread right out of the water.
If the Earth is getting closer to the Sun, it will change Position, which some people are reporting.
My question is: Who is right here? Einstein, or the Internet?
Well Einstein helped create the Atom Bomb, which we all know exists.
I know which one to believe, and the Internet is not it.
Just as a bowling ball placed on a trampoline stretches the fabric and causes it to sag, so planets and stars warp space-time - a phenomenon known as the 'geodetic effect'. A marble moving along the trampoline will be drawn inexorably towards the ball.
Thus the planets orbiting the Sun are not being pulled by the Sun; they are following the curved space-time deformation caused by the Sun. The reason the planets never fall into the Sun is because of the speed at which they are travelling.
