And again I ask since you ignored me earlier.. How come there has been no change here?? I live by the arctic circle where even small changes would
amplified and very visible compared to on lower latitudes. If there was even a 3 degree shift then we would suddenly have midnight sun. If it changed
by 1 or even half a degree then our summer nights would have become significantly brighter.
You might be being ignored by certain people because it can be difficult discussing something with those who assume to have all of the answers, or
because you seem to already 'know', but the question still remains to those who feel something is off. Just because you seem to have scientific
answer(s) to this means little to those who don't simply explain everything away because it can be explained away. It's also good to trust in our
own instincts. In any event, your comments have been read--maybe someone doesn't want to reply to you.. I mean, you have been a bit rude, even
calling one person "dumb" at one point.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, my b/f has been commenting to me about this subject for over a year, and he is very aware of the seasons and the
differences of the positioning.[I know very little on the scientific end].
This is one of the best replies I have seen in quite some time. Star for you!
While I cannot disagree with seemingly established "computer program facts", if I cannot verify those "facts" with my own experiences, I can
disagree with where and how those facts came to be.
When I go outside, and look to the west in the evening, and see that the sun is not where I think it should be, it makes me wonder. It especially
makes me wonder about it when I have witnessed the sunset from the same exact place on earth for the past 25+ years. And it makes me wonder even more
when my dad, who is not even remotely into any sort of things that are talked about on this site, mentions it in an off hand comment.
Bottom line...if someone can tell me why, for the past 25+ years, when I have been driving from east to west in the evening, I used to be blinded by
the light of the sun.
For the past few weeks, the sun has been to my right, still bright, but not right in my face...
Never really thought about it before til this thread, and when my dad said something about it...
