If you live a few degrees below the Equator, and you can See Polaris, well then you've just debunked an Astrophysicist!
Shout out and call out to all the Flat Earthers and Globe-heads living near or around 2 Degrees South Latitude. That means you Ecuador, Brazil, Tanzania, and Indonesia (Jayapura)! Indonesia you may be the best bet as you Google "Flat Earth" more than any other country in the world. Simply go outside and see if you can find Polaris, check your Latitude on your smart phone, if you are below 1.5 Degrees South Latitude and you can observe Polaris, then you just debunked an Astrophysicist!
SPACE COMPANY'S FOOTAGE OF GLOBE RAISES QUESTIONS OF SCALE
[SPOILER ALERT: This entire article can be explained in one sentence: watch four seconds of Zero To Infinity's satellite launch video cued up here, and note that your view of the earth is from 15.5 Miles up (25 Kilometers), which is not high enough to see both sides of the globe.]
On March 1st, 2017, Zero To Infinity, a private Spanish company which "provides access to near space" according to Wikipedia, recently used a hot air balloon to deploy four mini-satellites into orbit. However, the video footage taken from the Bloostar (the hot air balloon) left some unanswered questions with respect to scale....
Does Polaris disappear from sight 105 miles South of Equator?
Astrophysicist Neil Tyson tweeted out last year to rapper B.O.B. that Polaris is "gone by 1.5 deg S. Latitude." One degree of the earth's circumference is approximately 70 miles, so 1.5 degrees equals about 105 miles. Some Flat Earth Theorists claim Polaris can be seen from as far South as the Tropic of Capricorn at 23.5 degrees, that's ~1,645 miles below the equator. This is a huge discrepancy! If this be the case, the tweet below from Tyson's twitter account stands to be debunked...
