I mostly posts in these threads when I see people being ignorant of some very basic things. No insult intended to those people at all, but just want
to help them have a dose of common sense is all.
I see Soylent posted a pretty good pick giving an example of why something out in space would be visible to others and not just the south pole. Here
is another one. Anyone can do this, just use Google earth, orient the center on the south pole, and zoom out:
As you can see, not only can you see Antarctica, but you can see South America, South Africa, Australia and NZ. This LOS (Line Of Sight), means that
if you can see those places from this far out........they can see you too. That is what Line Of Sight is.
But people can do other things to prove this, and it does not require a degree in science of any kind, nor does it require anyone to trust the
government, or NASA or JPL, or some web cam......all it requires is for someone to trust their very own eyes. And if you don't trust those, I can't
Take a camera, be it a cam corder, web cam, iPhone, etc, and place it on a table pointing up. Now take a ball like a volley ball. Mark on the ball
where the south pole would be, then put "X" where each of the places I mentioned above would be. Hold the ball over the camera (the camera being
"Nibiru" or whatever).
Now take a look at your pictures and/or video.
Look at how you can see the other Xs that are not the south pole.
Now reverse it. Find an object this is spherical in shape, that you can cut into, and mount your camera on it, say in the same position as Austraila,
face the camera to the south.
Place an object on the table and hold your sphere object with the camera mounted on it over this object.
Again, you'll see from the camera's video/pictures that you do not have to be at the south pole to see the object.
Still don't believe it?
Look at the moon. It's around 1,500 miles wide and 250,000 miles away. The earth is basically a sphere, so let us put the south pole at the equator,
like say the Panama Canal. When the moon is directly over head at the Panama Canal, guess what? You'll see it just fine way up north in
Canada......and you'll see it way down south in South America, just fine.
What about a "light source" casting shadows?
No problem. Look at the sun. Light source. Now look at the Earth. When the sun is visible in North America, casting shadows, it is also casting
shadows in South America........it's lighting up exactly 1/2 of the sphere that is our planet.
It does this with our Moon too, and all the other planets.
Because if you scroll back up and look at Soylent's picture they posted, that is why. It's simple geometry.
Again, no one has to take my word for it. Do the things I suggested and take a look for yourselves. You don't have to trust me, or any government
agency at all.
