## The Sun's True Distance From Earth

Sun's Distance - Zetetic Cosmogony
Thomas Winship, author of Zetetic Cosmogony, provides a calculation demonstrating that the sun can be computed to be relatively close to the earth's surface if one assumes that the earth is flat --
On March 21-22 the sun is directly overhead at the equator and appears
45 degrees above the horizon at 45 degrees north and south latitude. As
the angle of sun above the earth at the equator is 90 degrees while it is
45 degrees at 45 degrees north or south latitude, it follows that the angle
at the sun between the vertical from the horizon and the line from the
observers at 45 degrees north and south must also be 45 degrees. The result
is two right angled triangles with legs of equal length. The distance between
the equator and the points at 45 degrees north or south is approximately 3,000
miles. Ergo, the sun would be an equal distance above the equator.
