De Kauai à Oahu – 140 km et tjrs pas de courbure terrestre
15 Comments


and I live on the island of Kauai and I’ve always heard stories that you could see a wahoo from here which is depending on who you ask anywhere from about 70 miles to over a hundred miles away and so technically you really should not be able to see an island up far away due to the supposed curvature of the earth so I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting to for a very clear day so that I could get a picture of Oahu from Kauai just the other day on the 25th of October 2015 we had a pretty clear day and I was able to get several different shots of Oahu so the one that I got first was early in the morning and you know it’s it’s not the greatest picture but knowing what I’m looking for it was clear to me that this was a wahoo and you can see the clouds and then you can see the the island formation right below that later in the day I’ve got this image now this image is a little better you can clearly see the outline of a landmass that is approximately a hundred miles away it’s not a mirage it’s not clouds it’s clearly a landmass and it in fact is a Wahoo here’s an enhanced version of that same image I’ve tried to increase the contrast so that you can make out the landmass some even better and I’ve also zoomed in there’s also an image that was taken from the airport and the elevation here is probably less than 50 feet off sea level this image is taken when the Sun was coming up behind a Wahoo which probably helped the you know help to be able to see the image if the earth is in fact a sphere like they tell us it is how come you can see a water how come you can see this landmass which by the way its highest point is just a little over 4,000 feet I think it’s 4,000 and 25 feet it’s Mount kala and Mount kala on Oahu is should be well below the horizon or at least you know you should maybe you can see the very tip of it if you were you know what the right vantage point but ultimately you should not be able to see a wahoo because it would be below the horizon so to illustrate that what I did was well first of all let me show you this is what Google says you did a search distance between Oahu and Kauai they say it’s 108 miles from the center of Kauai to the center of Oahu so Google said it it’s official this this graphic is extremely accurate it basically I’ve been able to zoom in to the earth itself here’s Kauai which is the island that I’m on here’s a wahoo now remember google says that it’s 108 miles between Kauai and Oahu so to back up a little bit the circumference of the earth is 24,000 901 miles now that number might vary a little bit between different sources I’ve seen it just estimated to be a flat twenty-five thousand miles and I’ve seen it a little less but 24 901 is the most common number so what I did is I divided that number by 360 degrees so that I can figure out and how many miles are in each degree of Arc now the red line right here the red line which is a horizontal line in the back up a few steps this red line is perfectly horizontal so this represents what you would be able to see if you’re looking across the horizon if you’re looking at out of the ocean you’re looking at the horizon line you are seen you’re seeing a line that is completely horizontal and I’m gonna zoom back in here’s the red line I’m talking about so if I’m sitting right here taking a picture of Oahu you know there’s a fair amount of ocean where it appears flat and then it just drops off you just can’t see any further the eye can only see so far even if you have a telescope you can you know you can see things that are further in the air but as far as the ocean there’s only so much ocean you can see so I’ve set this up so that to estimate the line of sight now the line of sight takes us right to the very top of mountain kala which is a little over 4,000 feet and elevation so like I’m saying if you were up a little bit in elevation technically you ought to be able to see that very very tippy tippy top of that if you’re down on at sea level probably not that’s now this is on a round earth of course round earth model so the the big rub I have here is that you should not be able to see this landmass not unless you’re up sufficiently high like thousands of feet would you be able to see the landmass you would not be able to see it at sea level or 100 of 200 feet off the ground you just just wouldn’t be there and yet the evidence is overwhelming newspaper article from September 25th 2011 says clear to Oahu weather conditions as gave client’s a rare treat Wednesday morning with a clear view of Oahu some 90 miles away so you can clearly see the image or the outline of the island here the bottom of the frame I believe this was taken at sea level and also that it was taken during high tide so you’re unable to see this well little portion here but other than that the outline is exactly the same as what is in all the other images that I’ve collected

  1. Et voila, encore des calculs faux! La flèche de courbure terrestre pour une distance de 140 km est de 385m. On est donc largement en dessous de l'altitude de l'île qu'on observe! Rien d'étonnant donc à ce qu'on puisse la voir. Avez vous besoin d'aide en calculs? Et encore: j'ai utilisé vos propres chiffres et en tenant compte d'une observation faite au niveau de la mer. Evidemment si l'observateur se trouve en hauteur, il peut voir encore plus loin d'autant plus qu'il n'y a aucun obstacle sur le trajet.

  2. <<Google le dit donc c'est officiel>>.Non mais au pire ferme juste ta gueule, la terre est sphérique, c'est prouvé depuis longtemps.

  3. Ca vous choque pas vous que pour prouver la soi-disant platitude de la Terre, ce type soit obligé de monter en altitude pour voir l'île au loin. En prétendant démontrer une chose, il prouve l'inverse.
    A ce compte, je vous signale que quand les conditions météo s'y prêtent l'on assiste à des choses bien plus spectaculaires ( ex Mont Canigou visible depuis Marseille )

    Ceux que des explications SCIENTIFIQUES ne rebutent pas pourront consulter ce site avec profit. .

  4. je cite " Cette photo a été prise alors que le soleil se levait derrière Oahu, ce qui a probablement aidé pour la qualité de l'image " se levait comment est-ce possible avec une terre plate ? simple question ?

  5. Calculs totalement exagérés….  Ridicule théorie… Ne mérite pas de perdre de temps a répondre a des incultes, et je suis poli là…  Vous les "platistes, vous êtes des criminels conscients de la connaissance et de la vérité, c'est a mon avis gravissime et condamnable..

  6. la photo prise avec le lever de soleil pile derrière est très interessante parce que comment expliquer la réfraction d'une image sur l'eau quand le soleil est plus bas derrière l'objet observé?
    the picture with the sun behind the island at sunrise is very interessant
    how could it give a refraction ( that' the common explaination) in such a situation?

  7. on a plusieurs images de ce type par ex la Corse vue de Nice dans ce cas le soleil se lève sur à l'est et ne passe jamais derrière l'ile,
    et là on a un lever de soleil derrière l'ile? comment la lumière du soleil pourrait elle éclairer l'ile? si le soleil se lève quand on est sur Kauai c'est qu'il est déjà levé sur Oahu
    ( et inversement sur le mont canigou vu depuis marseille)

  8. avec les distances le soleil se couche ou se lève avec 30 mn de différence entre Grenoble et Brest
    comment pourrait on voir le soleil se coucher sur derrière le canigou en même temps qu'il se couche à marseille?
