The heliocentric model requires that “[t]he Moon does not have its own light but shines because its surface reflects the Sun’s rays.” Furthermore, the heliocentric model requires that “a Full Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are aligned on opposite sides of Earth.” That means that “[t]he Full Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are aligned on opposite sides of Earth, and 100% of the Moon’s face is illuminated by the Sun.”
With those necessary heliocentric premises in mind, it is impossible for a full moon to be seen during the daytime if the heliocentric model is true. During the daytime, the sun will be shining on the earth, with the moon between the earth and the sun. The sunlit part of the moon would, necessarily, be facing away from the earth. Under the heliocentric model, the full moon should only be visible on the dark (night) side of the earth.
Is a full moon, in fact, seen during the daytime? Yes. It happens pretty often. For example, the Time and Date calculator reveals that on April 16, 2022, at 2:55 p.m. EDT (Eastern Daylight Savings Time) there was a full moon. Of course, 2:55 p.m. would be in the middle of the day. Under the heliocentric model, the sun illuminated that side of the supposed globular earth.
Indeed, according to the heliocentric model, the full moon should be eclipsed by the shadow of the earth at night. In fact, there should be a solar eclipse approximately every 28 days and also a lunar eclipse every 28 days. But that does not happen. The heliocentric priests have a ready answer for that problem with their model. They claim that the moon is 5 degrees offset from a perfect ecliptic orbit in relation to the sun. The scientists at the Time and Date website explain:
Why don’t we see a lunar eclipse every month if a Full Moon is needed for a total lunar eclipse?
This is because the plane of the Moon’s orbital path around Earth is inclined at an angle of 5° to Earth’s orbital plane around the Sun, also known as the ecliptic. The points where the two orbital planes meet are called lunar nodes. Lunar eclipses occur when a Full Moon happens near a lunar node.
While that 5-degree offset sophistry is enough to pull the wool over the eyes of the gullible, uninquisitive public regarding the absence of lunar and solar eclipses, it does not explain how there can be a full moon during the daytime. Recall that according to the heliocentric model, “it is officially Full Moon when the Moon is aligned with the Sun and Earth while at the opposite end of its orbit, on the night side of Earth.”
Assume, as alleged by heliocentrists, that the earth has a radius of 3,959 miles and the moon is 238,900 miles from earth. With the moon being at 5 degrees off the ecliptic of the sun and earth, it would mean that the moon is 20,822 miles above (or below) the ecliptic. Thus it would clear the earth’s shadow by 16,863 miles (20,822 – 3,959 = 16,863). That would put the moon above (or below) the shadow of the earth and thus heliocentrists would have an explanation for there not being both a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse every 28 days. But even with that 5-degree offset assumption, the heliocentric model cannot produce a daytime full moon. Since we see daytime full moons with regularity, the heliocentric model must be false.
If that is the case, there can never be a full moon seen during the daytime. The 5-degree offset from the ecliptic does not change that fact. When you look at the diagram posted on Time and Date, you can clearly see that even with the 5-degree offset, under the heliocentric model, there should never be a daytime full moon. But daytime full moons happen with regularity. The frequently occurring phenomenon of a daytime full moon completely impeaches the heliocentric model. As explained in my books, The Greatest Lie on Earth and The Sphere of Influence, the earth is, in fact, flat and stationary. A daytime full moon, with the moon being the source of its own light is perfectly explained by the reality of the flat, stationary earth revealed in the Holy Bible.
