think no more about the stars in the sky it is just a black cloth thrown over the heavens by the flat earth Santa and he has painted little stars on it... and during the daytime he whips the black cloth away and the stars disappear. the flat earth is just like a big bird cage... a sort of Dome and it night time the flat earth Santa puts the star cloth back over the Dome and we have night time.

The Sun is a star.

The next nearest star to Earth is Alpha Centauri, which is 25,000,000,000,000 miles away from us. It is about 1.1x the size of the sun.

The reason they don’t fall from the sky is that they aren’t in the sky in the same way that a plane is. They’re just floating around in space like we are.

During the daytime, when the Sun is shining directly on our part of the Earth, the sky is way too bright to see any of the stars with the naked eye. They’re still there, we just can’t see them.

The reason the stars appear to move in the sky is because the Earth is rotating, this gives the illusion that the stars are moving across the sky (in the same way that the sun or moon does).

That would depend on if it is travelling uphill, or downhill I would think 🤔

I love these online auction sites. I sold my homing pigeon six times last month.

Yes, the flat earth explanation is definitely gaining traction, especially when I found out the airline industry has been found out fitting windows in their craft that are designed to make the earth look curved from 35000 feet.

I hear there are Flat Earthers in every part of the globe now.
