It's completely wrong. The planets are not trailing the sun as he shows in his second video right at the start. The heliocentric model of the solar
system is not "2d." Why do you think planets can have positive or negative ecliptic latitudes? Because they're not orbiting precisely on the
ecliptic, every planet has some degree of inclination. Furthermore, our solar system's direction of motion is not coincident with the ecliptic pole
as depicted in the videos.
The solar apex, our solar system's direction of travel relative to the local stars projected onto the sky has the coordinates of about 18hr RA, +30
=X&ei=EA7LUNXgB6nE2gWxiYCwCA&ved=0CFoQ6AEwCA#v=onepage&q=solar%20apex%20coordinates&f=false ) whereas our north ecliptic pole has coordinates of about
18hr RA, +66.5 degrees Dec. Therefore, our planet is at some points in its orbit "ahead" of the sun in the sun's direction of travel, specifically
this condition is at its peak when the sun's position along the ecliptic in our sky is at 6hr RA, in other words, at the June solstice.
Even if you consider the motion of the local standard of rest within the arms of our galaxy and look at the motion of our sun relative to the galactic
center ( www.gb.nrao.edu...
) we are still not moving towards the ecliptic pole and we are still ahead
of our sun at certain times of the year (in the latter case the vector of our direction of travel points to about 20h 57m, +47d 53' which is separated
from our ecliptic pole by about 30 degrees and places us ahead of the sun relative to its direction of travel in August). This is in complete
contradiction to the OP's video as well as its sequel, which depict the planets "trailing" the sun. That is simply not happening and is completely
inconsistent with even the most rudimentary empirical data on the motions of the planets.
