Midnight Sun in Antarctica? Time-Lapse Video

Time-lapse video of the sun at Ushuala in Argentina, South America, December 21, 2017.

Believers in the flat earth theory have a “Flat Earth Map” that puts Antartica around the edges of their flat earth with the sun in the center. This arrangement necessitates that it would not be possible for the sun to appear for 24 hours a day during December, the “midnight sun” phenomenon that is well known at the South Pole.

In fact, according to the Flat Earth model, the sun would have to always remain in the Northern half of the sky in Antarctica. However in this time-lapse video from Ushuala, the southernmost point of South America, we can see the sun rotating around almost 360 degrees. It does set in the South for a few hours and rise again, still in the South, which would be totally impossible on the map being promoted by the flat earth people.

This time-lapse video is consistent with the model of the earth as a globe and proves the map most flat-earthers currently believe in can not be correct.

During December of 2017 I visited the southern most tip of South America which has a latitude of 54.8 degrees South.

Transcript of Video:

This is the place where tours to Antarctica leave from.

I am located about a kilometer in on the top of one of the buildings.

This is a time-lapse of the sun. We are looking towards the north.

At this time of the year the sun is above the Tropic of Capricorn, which is further up towards the the North in South America and also goes through Australia. The Tropic of Capricorn is at a latitude of 23.4 degrees South. So the sun can’t go any further South than this 23.4 degrees and we are at 54.8 degrees south.

So if the flat earth map is correct the sun must always stay in the Northern part of the sky when viewed from the southernmost tip of South America.

On the flat earth map it would be impossible for the sun to appear in the South here. This is why most flat earthers do not believe that Antarctica experiences 24 hours of sun in December. They believe, based on the flat earth map, the sun must stay in the north.

But Now we are looking towards the South. And you can clearly see the sun in the South. At this time we know it is daytime in Australia and the sun is actually directly over the Tropic of Capricorn in Australia. And we are clearly seeing the sun here in the Southern direction from South America at the same time.

Now the sun has set in the South, but we can see where it is and the camera is still tracking it.

Now we are seeing the sun rise again in the South after only a few hours.

We know the sun is over Australia yet we are seeing the sun by looking South from South America.

This is what we would expect to see on a globe. But this is totally impossible on the flat earth map.

    El movimiento del sol es muy grande más allá de la Antártica no es que el sol llega solo hasta Capricornio no .
    El sol tiene una posición real sobre la montaña manasotar en diciembre 21 y nosotros tenemos una observación aparente reflejada en el domo en el hemisferio sur.
    Los vedas describen muy bien todo .

    The movement of the sun is very large beyond Antarctica is not that the sun only reaches Capricorn not.
    The sun has a real position on the Manasotar mountain on December 21 and we have an apparent observation reflected in the dome in the southern hemisphere.
    The Vedas describe everything very well.

      I am studying the Vedas also but do not understand it very clearly. If you read Srimad-Bhagavatam Canto 10 you will see that the sun does not actually move around Manasottara Mountain. And there is no “dome” mentioned in the Vedas. What is on Manasottara mountain is the single axle of the chariot of the Sun God. So it is the Axle, not the sun itself, that spins around on the top of Manasottara mountaion, going all the way around 360 degrees in a year and rotating once every 24 hours. But actual sun movement is not on the mountain itself but is much closer to earth [center of bhu-mandala] going around, up and down, the axle.
      So if you truly understand the Vedic model PLEASE EXPLAIN IT TO ME FULLY. I would also like to understand it…

        Flat Earth Facts,

        The video is interesting & leaves unanswered questions.

        If you’re only half a kilometer inland from South America’s southern tip how is there clearly visible land with settlements beyond your southern coast line?

        If sun sets South of your location why does it appear to set over land?

        Like so many supposed South pole 24 hour sun videos why is there in fact a long period of darkness in the video in which you as apparent narrator claim to track a sun that you claim to be able to see but is no where visible in the video? Why is there clearly missing time lapse footage evidenced by the fact that daylight suddenly appears over the entire sky suddenly out of complete darkness?

        Why do you allow only one comment to appear on this thread?

        Did you really want a discussion when you put this on your website?

        There are many more questions but these are a good start.

          Only one good comment so far. I only post good comments, the ones that are useful. So if there were more useful comments I would have posted them.

          As far as this video, it’s not a question of 24 hour sun, we are not far enough south for 24 hour sun. But there is only about 4 hours where sun is below the horizon and it sets in the south and rises again in the south, some distance along the horizon. It is not difficult for most to see the path of the sun in the sky. It is going round in a circle, because on the video, we start looking north, sun goes to the south and it is obvious to anyone who can slightly think, with all due respect, that the sun is continuing, in the south, below the horizon, and rising again, in the south, a bit further along.

          Now the sun can not be in the south in the flat earth model. That is the point. Look at your flat earth model. Sun can not be in the south.

          But it is in the south.

          And anyone also can project that if we have moved this far south and we are seeing the sun circling around our heads in the sky, but setting a little bit for a few hours, then if we were to go further south then we are moving around the globe towards the south pole, and changing our relationship to the path of the sun, so it will be midnight sun.

          It is obvious for anyone who is prepared to think about it.

          Daylight appears suddenly, not really, but that is because I changed the settings on the camera. Sun actually and sets and light is going up and down as you would expect it to.

          So the point of this video is to show that the movement of the sun in the south is consistent with the globe earth model and completely contradictory to the flat earth model.

          If you want spend the $10,000 extra you can get on a boat and go further South and see the midnight sun yourself, if you go there in December. But I was not prepared to spend the extra $10,000. For me seeing from this point is sufficient to understand what is going on.
