the trouble with this is that there are no absolute positions. speed and positions are relative, so the best we can do is declare one thing the standard (our sun, as it is by far the largest object with the most influence on all the planets in the solar system) and base all measurements off of that.
Secondly, most planets are visible throughout the entire year. In a “flat” model, every single planet would hide behind the Sun at least once a year. They don’t.
