After all my Torah books, Rabbenu books and Rav books, my next most referenced book is… an atlas.
It’s the Collins Atlas of the World, and it dates to 1983.
And as well as maps, it’s just chock-full of the sort of pseudo-scientific propaganda they’ve been shoving down our throats for decades. I like it, because they were much more crass about their propaganda in the old days, because people were much more gullible.
Watch this (speeded up…) if you want a good laugh.
It’s the Soviet propaganda showing the ‘first man to walk in space’, from 1965,
( I particularly love how ‘Vostok 2’ apparently falls back to earth always with the door hatch in the best position for the astronaut to leave the craft, and apparently never smashes up on impact, despite ‘falling’ out of deep space straight onto a field…. which also shows no signs of impact….)
It’s all smoke and mirrors.
And if you want to tell me that ‘Russia was the great enemy of the West’, and surely wouldn’t be co-operating in the huge joke that is ‘outer space’ and men on the moon… let me just point you in the direction of what’s going on with the so-called ‘War in Ukraine’ right now.
It’s all smoke and mirrors.
So, let’s get back to my atlas, and NASA.
Here’s a handy diagram that depicts how new moons and full moons are meant to happen:
Notice that the sun is meant to be directly behind the earth, for the ‘Full Moon’.
Now, here’s what NASA says about lunar eclipses:
[L]unar eclipses only occur at Full Moon.
Now you might be wondering “If the Moon orbits Earth every 29.5 days and lunar eclipses only occur at Full Moon, then why don’t we have an eclipse once a month during Full Moon?”.
I’m glad you asked! You see, the Moon’s orbit around Earth is actually tipped about 5 degrees to Earth’s orbit around the Sun. This means that the Moon spends most of the time either above or below the plane of Earth’s orbit. And the plane of Earth’s orbit around the Sun is important because Earth’s shadows lie exactly in the same plane.
During Full Moon, our natural satellite usually passes above or below Earth’s shadows and misses them entirely. No eclipse takes place. But two to four times each year, the Moon passes through some portion of the Earth’s penumbral or umbral shadows and one of the above three types of eclipses occurs.
What ‘shadows’ are these people talking about?!
Here’s how the Collins atlas depicts them:
You see, in REAL science, as sponsored by NASA et al, the sun’s rays magically zoom in on the earth – but only during a lunar eclipse!
And then, they kind of ‘bounce off’ the back of the earth, in a way that never happens at any other point in the moon’s cycle, at full moon, to create a shadow that only lasts for a few minute, to cause a ‘lunar eclipse’.
Super simple and totally understandable now you’ve seen this Collins’ diagram, right?
And for solar eclipses, the sun’s rays narrow even further down, to only ‘concentrate’ on the moon, and that in turn causes all this ‘umbra and penumbra’ stuff, that leads to solar eclipses, which only occur around the time of the New Moon.
But not every single month when there is a New Moon, not at all.
Something else is doing the ‘eclipsing’ here, possibly the ‘black sun’ of ancient mythology, which might have been repackaged for us in modern times as ‘Nibiru’.
So, these diagrams are from 1983 – 40 years ago.
With Hubble in space, and the International Space Station, there’s tons of new footage that now shows exactly what is going on with these lunar and solar eclipses, from space.
Hey, wait a minute…..
I can’t seem to find it.
Let’s see what they have on the NASA website.
I type in ‘footage of lunar eclipses from space’, and THIS is what comes up:
NASA’s ‘Scientific Visualisation Studio’.
It’s just one computer-generated animation after another, of lunar eclipses.
Like this one, from November 8, 2022:
Here’s the credit shout-out:
But I want REAL footage of a lunar eclipse, shot from the International Space Station….
So I try again. And this time, I get this:
Happy Monday from space! Were you lucky enough to be able to see the lunar eclipse last night? We were! / Buon lunedì dallo spazio! Avete avuto la fortuna di vedere l’eclissi lunare di ieri sera? Noi sì! 🌘#lunareclipse2022 #MissionMinerva #LunarEclipse pic.twitter.com/RKJ49L4YAX

A lone picture, that again looks totally ‘visualised’ in that NASA sci-fi way we’ve come to know and hate.
No-one on that space station could actually take some real-time video footage, showing all the ‘umbra and penumbra’ sweeping across the moon, blahdy blahdy blah?
Here’s a 3.5 hour time lapse of that same lunar eclipse of November 8, 2022, taken from earth:

Notice how the sky is moving around the earth, that remains stationary.
That’s what we see with our eyes.
And again, someone out there who believes all the penumbra and umbra stuff, explain to me, simply, how that squares with what we are seeing in this time lapse video.
This is a timelapse picture, taken by someone on planet earth who doesn’t work for NASA, for how that lunar eclipse looks ‘in slow mo’:

This is awesome.
But again, it totally doesn’t ‘jive’ with the explanation given in the Collins Atlas, and on NASA’s own site, and I’m still scratching my head as to what I’m really seeing here.
So I keep looking for some ‘official footage from space’ of a lunar eclipse and finally – Eureka!
This turns up:
Snippet from HERE:
This week’s lunar eclipse wasn’t only observed from the ground and from the International Space Station — it was also observed from 64 million miles (100 million kilometers) away from Earth by the Lucy spacecraft. Lucy, which is an uncrewed craft from NASA and the Southwest Research Institute on its way to study the Trojan asteroids in the orbit of Jupiter, got a view of the lunar eclipse on May 15 and was able to snap images over a period of three hours which have been turned into a time-lapse video:
Take a look at that video.
It’s totally underwhelming.
And it’s very interesting to me, that this ‘Lucy spacecraft’, apparently 64 million miles away, has only got the apparent ‘earth’ and the apparent ‘moon’ on its footage – no stars, no massive comets, no space debris, just a totally ‘clear’ shot of something pretending to be the earth, and something else pretending to be the moon, from ’64 million miles away’, with nothing in between….
Are we really all this stupid, to keep believing all this made up nonsense time and time and time again?
While you are pondering that…. (shmirat eynayim friendly).
I’m still waiting for someone to explain how a massive lake of water can ‘bend’ across 250 miles of its length, following a planetary curve of almost a third of a mile, with the water at the top of that lake still remaining in the top of that lake, totally flat, without pooling to the bottom of that lake.
In the meantime, a reader sent me this compilation of Torah sources on the shape of the earth (in Hebrew):
He literally went through thousands of hours of research over a year and a half to get to his conclusion.
It’s very interesting, and you should watch it and come to your own conclusions.
He also has lots of old footage, also from Russia and also from the USA, including Russian ‘space flights’ where no one is wearing a space suit… at all.
In the meantime, there’s some understandable confusion about what the basic ‘flat earth’ theory is actually saying.
BH, I will try to set out their basic ideas in the next post.
But one thing is clear: NASA is lying through their teeth.
And always has been.
