In the southern hemisphere people witness the sun traversing the sky in an arc which does not match what he is doing with the light, (which supposedly represents the path of the sun). And it is not possible for him to do so either because you would essentially need two suns moving in different reverse arcs across different portions of the sky. Are there two suns now in the flat earth model? Back to the drawing board for some, I suppose, but then there are those who do not care about the facts and reality of what is actually witnessed on the ground.
    Essentially?

      These are nice photographs. The first is a low-pressure weather system over Iceland:



      And this one is a low-pressure system over Australia:



      And of course we are seeing here the Coriolis effect as it plays out in mirror form in the Northern and Southern hemispheres.

        It's very impressive that you appear to live your life in sidereal days (23 hr 56 min) instead of solar days (24 hours). Do you have a specially made watch?

          This is a nice photograph of a partial lunar eclipse.



          Funny, now I look at it, the shadow of the earth is curved. I wonder if you ever see any different shapes of the earth's shadow, like a strip or straight line?

          That would be great evidence for a flat earth, different shapes of shadow during a partial lunar eclipse.

          Or even a decent explanation for eclipses...

            So that map obviously can't be right.

              Yes because essentially you do not realize that if you wish to give an accurate portrayal of what is actually witnessed from the ground you need to essentially superimpose this image over your flat earth map:

              I spoke of the following courses which are well documented and observed:


              Your flat earth maps are a 3D projection of the globe stretched out into a 2D version as viewed from above the north pole: and that is what causes you much of your confusion. When you look at a side view of the globe the tropics and the equator are parallel lines because they traverse around a spherical globe with a curved surface. However when you take that 3D side view of a globe or sphere, and make it 2D, the following is the proper representation of the view which is created because you are going from 3D into 2D and stretching the parallel lines out onto a flat surface:



              I suppose most everyone but you can see that the sun is still traversing from east to west in all three examples in the image file. However what this means is that your flat earth maps are misunderstood because the people promoting them do not understand that they are 2D representations of a 3D globe onto a flat surface map as viewed from above the north pole of a sphere. The supposed flat earth map is still a representation of a sphere as viewed from above the north pole but stretched out onto a flat surface for flat mapping purposes. It is all an illusion in your mind for not understanding what you are looking at.

              It actually does not even matter if this can all be viewed on the same day of the year or not because, nearly all year long, this or something near to this is what people see from these three locations on the earth, that is, from the northern hemisphere, from the southern hemisphere, and from the equatorial region. Again, this is not possible on a flat earth model, with the sun circling above a flat earth, because everyone would see the sun moving in the same arc across the sky, even though for some the arc of the path would be wider and for some the arc of the path would be narrower.
              Everything seems like it might be workable and okay so long as you focus only on the northern hemisphere and the equatorial regions where the guy is focusing the light bulb in the video. But the people living in the southern hemisphere do not see anything like what your video guy is doing with the light bulb. What can you do but have two suns? or would you split the sun in half so as to make half of it do what the people in the southern hemisphere see every day? You are not understanding the facts as witnessed from the ground all over the world in the southern hemisphere. The sun does not appear to do the same thing but rather traverses an opposite arc across the sky in the south and they see the sun doing so to their north, in what is to them the northern sky, and that is because they are in the southern hemisphere of a spinning globe which is tilted on its axis of rotation.

                This blogger discusses flight paths, (a little bit), in association with maps and at the same time also proves the same thing I have been saying herein: that the flat-earthers are for the most part unknowingly and unwittingly using a 2D azimuthal globe earth map to supposedly prove their theories.

                  Yes they have to use that one because it gives them an ice wall that stops the water running off, I think that's right.

                  I have met people who have sailed 'around' Antarctica, one of them twice. On this map, that distance is about 55000 km. Are the flat earthers preparing a special award for people who complete this feat in much less time than the usual great circle circumnavigation?

                      Primary waves from shallow earthquakes have a characteristic propagation pattern through the sphere of the earth, and because of the effects of density change and temperature change in the mantle, and refraction at the boundary between the mantle and the outer core, the p wave can be detected all round the earth except for a p wave 'shadow zone' between 100 degrees and 140 degrees from the earthquake epicentre.

                      Haven't seen a flat-earth mechanism for a circular strip of no p waves with p waves before it and p waves after it. Maybe earthquakes are part of the conspiracy as well.

                      So when you say 'denial', you got that word right.

                        Here are some nice pictures, the Aurora Borealis (Northern hemisphere):



                        and the Aurora Australis (Southern hemisphere):



                        Now, you would think, wouldn't you, that if the earth's magnetic field is uniform as indeed it behaves, then according to the 'ice wall Antarctica' model of a flat earth, the magnetic field lines would be much more dispersed in the South than at the North Pole, giving a more intense aurora effect in the North.

                        Yet the two Aurora look pretty much the same.

                          Here is a flat earth site which even goes so far as to show a model of the globe earth with the equator and the tropics on it, which are of course parallel lines because they encircle latitudes on a sphere. But what they apparently do not realize about the azimuthal globe earth map, which they use for the flat earth model, is that the physical observations from the ground in the southern hemisphere cannot be displayed properly on their flat earth map:


                          http://geocentricworks.com/Flat_Earth_Maps.html


                          http://geocentricworks.com/Flat_Earth_Maps.html

                          The people living in the northern hemisphere see the sun following a similar path to what the flat-earthers imagine it to be, (surely not identical but I suggest about the same for argument's sake). The people in the equatorial regions see the sun moving across the sky in more of a straight line: but for reasons of argument let us just say the flat-earthers might be close enough. However when it comes to the people living in the southern hemisphere they see the path of the sun as entirely different from its supposed path on a supposed flat earth map. To accurately portray what is actually seen from the ground the following would be much closer to describing what the people living in the southern hemisphere witness the sun doing on a daily basis:





                          There are three different motions of the sun all at the same time as seen from the ground in different locations upon the earth because the earth is a spinning globe that is tilted upon its axis of rotation. Other than the above image file there is no way to accurately portray the paths of the sun on a flat earth map according to physical observations taken from various places on the planet, namely, from the northern hemisphere, from the equatorial region, and the from the southern hemisphere, which are three different observable paths of the sun all at the same time.

The last part of the ship you see is the bridge right at the top. If you observe in the same way from the top of the hill, you see the same thing, although the ship is a bit further away from you before it disappears. Now I think about it, it is resonably consistent with your fact of a six foot drop every 3 miles, or 2 metres every 5 kilometres, as we say in the former British Empire.

                                It's not a three foot drop every three miles from where you stand and watch, the next three miles, which would be six miles away, is a 24 foot drop. We also have to know what the power of magnification is of the telescope or camera that is being used. The Nikon P900, one of the most powerful and popular because of its price is 83x magnification. All cameras and telescopes have their limits. We see ships slowly disappear simply because they are too small and too far into the distance for us to see even for a telescope.
