The ecliptic

This article is under revision. Consider the picture aside. It represents the celestial sphere. The ecliptic is the maximum circle  inclined of about 23°27’ on the celestial equator . It is the projection of the trajectory of the sun (they say the Earth) on the celestial sphere (we say the dome or the firmament). and  are the points where the ecliptic intersects the equator otherwise known as the equinox points. The angle of 23°27’ is[…]

Smoke columns, waterfalls and Coriolis

Surfing the net you often happen to notice images of smoke columns getting out from volcanos and raising up to great altitudes. This is a phenomenon  by many considered to be  a clear evidence  the Earth is not spinning. Many people could  get the same impression in relation with high waterfalls: the fact that water falls on a straight line and doesn’t bend would be a clear consequence of the Earth being stationary and not[…]

Coriolis Effect proves the Earth is not moving.

What s Coriolis acceleration? This is a phisical phenomenon happening to an object moving in a rectilinear way on a rotating surface. Look at the image: in the first picture the ball is moving  over a rectilinear line on a stationary platform. The ball doesn’t resent of any lateral acceleration. When the platform starts  rotating, the ball starts bending its trajectory and the result will prove to be a non rectilinear movement. This side acceleration is[…]
