No Midnight Sun in Antarctica proves flat earth
According to the flat earth map Antarctica is a ring surrounding the flat earth and the sun is revolving above the flat earth but inside the circle. So, on a flat earth, viewed from Antarctica, or any point south of the Tropic of Capricorn, the sun can only ever appear to the North.
Flat earthers accept the midnight sun, where the sun appears above the horizon for days on end, which occurs in northerly regions as the sun rotates around the Tropic of Cancer. They also accept the long night that occurs in Antarctica at the same time but they argue that this midnight sun phenomenon can not occur in the southern regions and Antarctica.
This is completely incorrect. I have personally traveled to the southernmost part of South America during the longest day of the year and have seen with my eyes the sun rotating around in the sky almost 300 degrees. At that location, 54 degrees south, the sun still sets for a few hours. But it sets in the south and rises again also in the south and makes it journey around the sky to the north and back into the south to set again. This behavior of the sun can be observed by anyone south of the Tropic of Capricorn and it absolutely proves the flat earth map is incorrect.
There is no need to travel all the way to Antarctica to refute or confirm this. Even at 54 degrees south you can very clearly see the sun in the sky and you can also see the where the sun is when it is below the horizon during the long twilight period after it sets and before it rises. That only leaves about three hours when it is dark. And then the the sun rises again on the southerly side a little east from where it set a few hours before.
Conclusion: Flat earthers are incorrect. The midnight sun phenomenon does occur in Antarctica in the same way as it does in the Northern regions. This proves the flat earth map is incorrect and is what we would expect to occur if the earth was a globe.
Supporting Flat Earth Proofs
- 56) The “Midnight Sun” is an Arctic phenomenon occurring annually during the summer solstice where for several days straight an observer significantly far enough north can watch the Sun traveling circles over-head, rising and falling in the sky throughout the day, but never fully setting for upwards of 72+ hours! If the Earth were actually a spinning globe revolving around the Sun, the only place such a phenomenon as the Midnight Sun could be observed would be at the poles. Any other vantage point from 89 degrees latitude downwards could never, regardless of any tilt or inclination, see the Sun for 24 hours straight. To see the Sun for an entire revolution on a spinning globe at a point other than the poles, you would have to be looking through miles and miles of land and sea for part of the revolution!
- 57) The establishment claims the Midnight Sun IS experienced in Antarctica but they conveniently do not have any uncut videos showing this, nor do they allow independent explorers to travel to Antarctica during the winter solstice to verify or refute these claims. Conversely, there are dozens of uncut videos publicly available showing the Arctic Midnight Sun and it has been verified beyond any shadow of a doubt.
- 58) The Royal Belgian Geographical Society in their “Expedition Antarctique Belge,” recorded that during the most severe part of the Antarctic winter, from 71 degrees South latitude onwards, the sun sets on May 17th and is not seen above the horizon again until July 21st! This is completely at odds with the ball-Earth theory, but easily explained by the flat-Earth model. The Midnight Sun is seen from high altitudes in extreme Northern latitudes during Arctic summer because the Sun, at its inner-most cycle, is circling tightly enough around the polar center that it remains visible above the horizon for someone at such a vantage point. Likewise, in extreme Southern latitudes during Arctic summer, the Sun completely disappears from view for over 2 months because there at the Northern Tropic, at the inner-most arc of its boomerang journey, the Sun is circling the Northern center too tightly to be seen from the Southern circumference.

there’s vids of antartic 24 hr sun but have been proven fake. why fake it if the real deal would be so much easier? they have to because it isn’t real. just like why nasa fakes all aspects……..they have to.
Yes Dan, if the map the flat earthers present is correct, with the Antarctic around the edge and sun in the middle moving in and out from tropic of cancer to equator to Tropic of Capricorn and back again. So the sun can never go beyond the Tropic of Capricorn which passes through Australia. So to test this I went to the southernmoost tip of Antarctica around Christmas last year, which is when the 24 hour sun happens in the Antarctic. While I was not far enough south to experience the 24 hour sun, I could test the flat earth theory. According to the flat earth theory, and actually as we experience it, and according to the globe earth theory also, the sun is rotating above the Tropic of Capricorn at that time. We know this for a fact and can easily test it.
So look at the flat earth map, sun is rotating above Tropic of Capricorn so from anywhere south, ie from the southernmost part of South America, the sun can only appear in the southern part of the sky, it can never appear in the northern part. So to test this I made a video that I have not yet posted, but I will post it in a few days, and when I post it you can see for yourself the sun moving 360 degrees around the sky. It does set [in the North] and again rise a bit further along the North horizon about four hours later, but you can see that obviously sun is moving around 360 degrees as we would expect on a globe, but would be impossible on the flat earth map we are presented with.
So this observation is what we would expect to observe on a globe and would be impossible on the proposed flat earth map.
If you are in the south and the sun is over the tropic of capricorn then the sun would come from east and go past you to the vest. South from you would be the icewall…
Yes. But that is not what happens if you watch the video. Sun is rotating 360 degrees around in the sky. You can’t see it for a few hours only when it drops below the horizon in the south. But it comes up over the ocean again just a few hours later a bit further along. So, on a flat earth, if you were on the Southernmost point of South America like this, sun must stay behind you, because it is over Tropic of Capricorn, which is behind you in the flat earth, but sun appears in front of you, in the South. So this is proof that flat earth map is wrong and this observation is totally consistent with what we would expect to see on a globe.
Wait… when would you see the sun south of the topic of Capricorn on a globe earth? I’m confused how this is possible.
You can see the sun south of the Tropic of Capricorn of course. I never said you could not. But if you are South of the Tropic of Capricorn the sun should appear in the south. But at the poles you either see the sun for 24 hours or it is dark 24 hours. So the point is the observations are consistent with the predictions of globe earth model, not flat earth model.
Regardless of whether you are talking about a flat earth or a globe earth, the sun is never seen directly overhead from a latitude south of the Tropic of Capricorn, and would always be in the northern sky.
Similarly, the sun is never seen directly overhead from a latitude north of the Tropic of Cancer, and would always be in the southern sky.
That’s why the tropics are specially noted among all other lines of latitude.
Rubbish. That is what the flat earth map predicts. But it is not the reality. Watch the video. In reality the sun is seen in the northern sky, fully in every direction, only it sets below the horizon in the south for a few hours, so just watch the video and see the sun in the North. Totally impossible on the flat earth map, but exactly what we would expect to see on a globe.
^!^!^! MISINFORMATION ABOVE !^!^!^
-There is NO midnight sun in Antarctica.
-The South Pole does NOT EXIST.
So why DO PEOPLE still believe the Earth is flat?
! DO NOT BELIEVE THE GLOBAL LIE !
Humanity needs your support.
Research Flat Earth.
So where is your research proving there is no midnight sun in Antarctica. I researched it, I went there and I saw it personally. So there is midnight sun in Antarctica and the sky down there behaves exactly as if it was above the south pole of a rotating globe. So you have not done any research but just present things which are false as ‘facts’. It is not very convincing.
You damn liar.
The videos of 24 hour Sun in Antarctica have THE SAME EXACT CLOUDS AT THE BEGINNING AS AT THE END. IT. IS. FAKE.
YOU HAVE NOT BEEN THERE AND SEEN IT, IT DOES NOT EXIST.
DO NOT BELIEVE THE GLOBE LIE.
This video PROVES THE 24-HOUR SUN IN ANTARCTICA IS. FAKED.
Can you please re-upload this video to somewhere there is less censorship than YouTube? Rumble is a thought…
The fact that sundials work between the solstices is irrefutable proof that Earth cannot be a sphere/globe. Sundials work anywhere between the solstices due to the fact that the Sun moves thru the sky in a curved arc. IF Earth was a sphere/globe the sun between the solstices would move across the sky in a perfectly straight line east to west.
Nowhere between the solstices do we see the Sun move across the sky in a straight line! The online apps that show the sun’s arc will show you that if you are at the Equator at certain times of the year the sun’s path across the sky is a straight line east to west – this is a complete FRAUD and every person who lives there will refute it. Now you have the proof that Earth is not a globe/sphere and, has never and, will never be refuted.
It’s amazing how globe earthers do not understand the flat earth ideas and flat earthers do not understand the globe idea.
The globe idea explains how we see the sun moving in an arc. It is because the earth is spinning on a tilted axis. If you make a model, according to the globe earth idea, of sun, and earth you will see how the sun moves and how it matches your experience.
“…nor do they allow independent explorers to travel to Antarctica during the winter solstice…”
This is a lie. I did a simple google search and found this: https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-tips/how-to-go-to-antarctica
Why should I trust you to teach me about astronomy and the shape of the earth when you are not able to do a proper investigation on how to book a trip to Antarctica?
Anyways I would be very interested to see a follow-up to this article backed with solid evidence after a trip to Antarctica. Please book a trip to Antartica during the southern summer (~December/January) and show us an equal distribution of day and night within 24h.
You can travel there, but it’s controlled travel. They only let you into certain areas; the far-reaching stuff is mostly off limits. They’d be even more strict if they knew you were coming to do flat earth observations.
Actually I have tried to go there. The rules are you can go on an organized tour by taking a boat from the bottom of South America, Ushuaia, it takes about a week to get to the tip of Antarctica on the boat and you are allowed to get off the boat and look at the penguins, but you are not allowed to stay in Antarctica overnight…
So you pay $15,000 at least, spend a week going there on the boat, get off, spend a few hours and look at the penguins, and get back on the boat and send another week getting back to South America…
So yes, you can visit Antarctica, but you can only stay there a few hours, because not allowed to spend the night there…
So I did not go
In order for the earth to be round like a ball, the midnight sun must occur at the south pole as well as at the north pole. That is exactly what happens, at opposite times of the year. The north pole midnight sun occurs on June 21. Six months later, the south pole midnight sun occurs on December 21. If only one polar midnight sun occurred, the earth would not be round. However, each pole does experience the midnight sun at opposite times of the year. This can happen only on a round earth.
Prove it. Just because you say it doesn’t make it true. The whole point of the article was that nobody has proved it yet.
Just starting to reconsider theories. The one person says the flat earth cannot exist because of sun dissapearing on the horizon for 4 hours. My question what if the earth is flat, and not round and the orbit of the sun is not a circle?
No you misunderstand. If you look at the “Flat Earth Map” the flat earthers have the sun circling around a central point [north pole] and moving in and out between Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn.
So the sun can never be any further south than Tropic of Cancer. So that means if you are way south, like at the bottom of South America, according to the flat earth, the sun must always be in the North. Sun can never go in the South on flat earth model if you are South of Tropic of Capricorn.
So this video is showing the Sun in the south from the Southernmost tip of South America. This is impossible according to the flat earth map and therefore proves that the flat earth map is wrong. And what we observe here, it is consistent with what is predicted by the globe earth model.
The tropics work the same way in relation to the sun on a flat or globe earth. On either model, the most extreme southern and northern points where the sun may be seen directly overhead on the summer solstice are the tropics.
Nothing works on the flat earth as it is presented by the flat earthers. For example in December the whole of Antartica is experiencing day 24 hours a day. That is not possible on the flat earth map. It is impossible to have the whole of Antartica illuminated by the sun at the same time on the flat earth map. Similarly, almost anything else you test, it does not work on the flat earth map. But it all works on the globe.
You don’t have to go to Ushuaia to prove anything. Just compare the sun tables of Edmonton, Alberta, which is at roughly 53ºN latitude to its opposite parallel, Ushuaia at 54ºS. They are almost identical which would be impossible with the flat earth model. Then there’s the flat earth model with the diverging lines of longitude south of the equator. Navigation south of the equator would be very problematic using the accepted globe earth lines of longitude by mariners and aviators, which converge to a South Pole on their charts if the earth were indeed flat and with that alternate reality of the lines of longitude which would diverge to “the ice wall.”
Yes. But what you are saying is the map presented by the flat earth people is not correct. And I think, these days, no one actually believes the flat earth map. It is obviously impossible and your point is very valid, and there are many other points also, that totally invalidate the flat earth map.
So we can say certainly that the map generally presented by most flat earthers is obviously totally incorrect, impossible, and completely at odds with our actual observations and experiences.
But you can not say the earth is not flat because the map presented by the flat earthers is wrong. You can only say the map presented by the flat earthers is wrong. There may be another map, a correct map, that accepts the presumption of the earth being flat, and works, and is consistent with our observations and experiences.
This shows the superiority of the globe earth model, the globe earthers have a reasonable map that is consistent with our experiences and observations. So unless flat earthers can present a reasonable working map that is consistent with our observations and experiences, they don’t have any way of explaining how the earth could be flat…
So, you know, for the thoughtful scientific types, there is no logical explanation as to how the earth could be flat. It does not prove the earth is not flat, it just proves we don’t have a good model or story to tell, that makes a flat earth a logical reality.
But we may just be ignorant of how it works.
So you have proved the flat earth map is wrong. But you have not actually proved the earth is not flat…
Read the book of Genesis, then the book of Enoch with an open mind. The book of Enoch was removed from the Bible in the 16 th century by a Catholic pope . It didn’t fit his idea of a planetary system.
