I’ve seen flat earthers claim the sun is small and close, and has a shade around the edges, which shades parts of the flat earth during nighttime. If that were the case, the shaded areas would still be light (the beam is smaller than what’s shown in this model). This doesn’t explain what we actually observe happening in real life in different parts of the world.
Only a distant sun with a spinning globe explains vertical time zones that always move in only one direction, and how the sun rises and sets.
Flat earthers, including Owen Benjamin are now claiming satellites are all stationary, hanging from balloons, to fit their flat earth theory.
ABC and others calling this a ‘satellite’ fuels this deception: Space satellite crashes in front yard of Michigan home. Many just read the headline; though, the first paragraph calls it a “pseudo satellite.” But why call it a satellite at all? By definition, this is not a satellite, but a balloon.
It’s just a balloon with their selfie device and solar panels. Details from Samsung’s site:
The mountain they say is Denali is actually a nearby mountain we locals call “Sleeping Lady.”

Another Flat Earth Meme – another pile of lies…
It’s either a lie because they purposeful get these things are wrong or they are lying about their level of expertise. I’ll let you judge which one but this level of dishonesty/incompetence is inexcusably disgusting.
“Either then the earth is spherical or it is at least naturally spherical. …The evidence of the senses further corroborates this. …As it is, the shapes which the moon itself each month shows are of every kind straight, gibbous, and concave – but in eclipses the outline is always curved: and, since it is the interposition of the earth that makes the eclipse, the form of this line will be caused by the form of the earth’s surface, which is therefore spherical.”

How can even one person fall for the flat earth theory? Every one of their claims can be refuted. It’s just ridiculous, and shows how gullible and not very careful even many truthers are.
This is the first in a series of videos that show how anyone can prove to themselves that the earth is not flat. It is a spherical spinning ball. In this segment, I discuss how flat earthers are confused about the horizon, and I demonstrate how the horizon perfectly fits the globe earth model, and shows the curve of the earth when you know what to look for.
Why don’t the clouds move?
They do. At this scale, the clouds you see are REALLY BIG, and move very SLOWLY in comparison to the size of the whole earth. But you can see that the clouds do move in these magnified and stabilized animations made from the same images. https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/2971
