BobW in NC says: what happens next?
Ancient astronomers established that the sun is under the influence of a diurnal cycle that ensures the solar disc returns to an inclination above the oriental visual horizon… based upon these historical observations astrophysicists have managed to develop a complex computer model that predicts the solar disc will then proceed to traverse the illuminated hemisphere until such time as it declines below the occidental horizon.
The astrophysicists have stressed their confidence in the predictive powers of their computer model. However, should additional funding be forthcoming they will establish a worldwide network of observatories to measure and validate their predictions. However, this is not easy to achieve in the modern urban environment so it is proposed that these observatories will be established on calm equatorial beaches that support unimpeded visual access to the either the oriental or occidental horizon.
