Satellites Prove The Flat Earth Deception

This website exposes the flat earth deception and proves that the earth is globe shaped.

This page provides proof that satellites exist, which is contrary to what flat earthers say.

They proclaim that there are no satellites, and that communication is done through cable or towers.

Flat earth explanation for communication towers

The answer to the question is that satellite communication has to overcome distance and can be affected by weather, so they erect towers to provide better communication over a localized area.

Flatearthers must deny the existence of satellites, because satellites cannot orbit a flat earth.

So, they invent other ideas for how GPS / GNSS works, mostly involving antenna towers on the ground. This seems to satisfy large numbers of people that accept this flatearth claim made without knowing anything about how GPS / GNSS really works.

WGS84 is standard for GPS

The World Geodetic System (WGS84) is the reference coordinate system used by the Global Positioning System.

It comprises of a reference ellipsoid, a standard coordinate system, altitude data and a geoid.

You can watch this weather video, to see him showing different satellite imaging of the same storm, to know that satellites exist.

Every day News stations around the world show weather satellite images.  Do you think that it’s all faked, every day?

To say that there are no satellites would mean that countless companies and people who are involved in the conspiracy to cover up the flat earth; which is just ridiculous!

Here is a list of communication satellite companies.

You can simply look at HughesNet satellite internet service to see that people in remote locations can get internet service. It would be impossible to receive land-based signals or cables, as flat-earthers claim.

GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is a satellite system that is used to pinpoint the geographic location of a user’s receiver anywhere in the world.

VLBI Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) is a technique being used by the United States Naval Observatory (USNO) to determine the reference frames for stars and the Earth, and to predict the variable orientation of the Earth in three-dimensional space.

LIGO The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is a large-scale physics experiment and observatory to detect cosmic gravitational waves and to develop gravitational-wave observations as an astronomical tool.

How do you think that Google gathered images of every point on the Earth, to use on the Google Earth program?

From the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Landsat 8 satellite.

Himawari 8 is a Japanese weather satellite, the 8th of the Himawari geostationary weather satellites operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency.  http://himawari8.nict.go.jp/

You can use the SkyView Explore The Universe and Satellite Guide apps to use on your phone, to know where to look in the sky to view planets and satellites such as the International Space Station.

That in itself disproves flat-earthers proclamation that there are no planets or satellites.

Satellite Internet is the ability to transmit and receive data from a relatively small satellite dish on Earth and communicate with an orbiting geostationary satellite 22,300 miles above Earth’s equator.

All Geostationary satellites are always located above the equator (or zero latitude), so we can simply look at the angles of locations above the equator and below, to see that satellite dishes are not pointing to a ground-based antenna, but a satellite.

This Satellite Look Angle Calculator helps you determine the angle between a satellite dish installation location and an orbiting satellite.  Notice the angle increases as locations are closer to the Equator.

Broadway, New York
Satellite: 91W GALAXY 17 (G-17)
Elevation: 39.7°
Azimuth (true): 205.1°
Azimuth (magn.): 218.1°

Denver, Colorado
Satellite: 91W GALAXY 17 (G-17)
Elevation: 41.8°
Azimuth (true): 158.7°
Azimuth (magn.): 150.6°

Houston, Texas
Satellite: 91W GALAXY 17 (G-17)
Elevation: 55.0°
Azimuth (true): 171.3°
Azimuth (magn.): 168.7°

Peru, just below the Equator
Satellite: 91W GALAXY 17 (G-17)
Elevation: 68.4°
Azimuth (true): 299.2°
Azimuth (magn.): 302.9°

Santiago, Chile
Satellite: 91W GALAXY 17 (G-17)
Elevation: 45.4°
Azimuth (true): 326.1°
Azimuth (magn.): 324.2°

Falkland Islands
Satellite: 91W GALAXY 17 (G-17)
Elevation: 23.9°
Azimuth (true): 322.1°
Azimuth (magn.): 318.1°

You can clearly see that all of those locations are pointing to the same 91W Galaxy 17 (G-17) satellite, and that the angle of the satellite dish changes based on location.

Here is a video that was on Dec 18, 2008, long before people online were proclaiming the flat earth, that shows a satellite through night vision goggles.

You can research these photos of the ISS, which flat-earthers will dismiss as being photoshopped; but they are dismissing many amateur astronomy buffs who have witnessed the ISS through optical telescopes.

This picture of the International Space Station was taken with a Nikon P900 by Mick West, about 83° above Shingle Springs, California, ISO 400, 1/250th, f/6.5. Manual focus. Handheld.

It’s not a great image, but the ISS is small compared to the moon, and it’s on the move.; but you can see how the shape matches up with those that are captured using a telescope.

You can find out when it’s going to be visible by subscribing the the NASA “Spot the Station” site, which can email you whenever there’s going to be a good flyover, or just give you a list of all upcoming times when it will be visible. https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/

This  is the first attempt to capture the ISS without transiting either the sun or moon as background and which is most difficult given the lack of contrast presented by the daytime bright sky as well as the immense difficulty in achieving perfect focus. Although the Sun was used for focusing a few minutes earlier, the absence of sunspots aggravated the situation. The ISS was captured on two successive digital images spaced approximately 0.33 seconds apart and layered to form a single composite image. The ISS was moving from the bottom right to the upper left and, as suggested by the arrows in the annotated second image, transited (occulted?) the giant gas planet.  http://www.perseus.gr/Astro-Sat-ISS-2010-05-29.htm

This image was taken as the ISS transits the Sun.

Additional information on satellites:

In radio communication, skywave or skip refers to the propagation of radio waves reflected or refracted back toward Earth from the ionosphere, an electrically charged layer of the upper atmosphere. Since it is not limited by the curvature of the Earth, skywave propagation can be used to communicate beyond the horizon, at intercontinental distances. It is mostly used in the shortwave frequency bands. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skywave

Digital Globe captures high-resolution imagery from their satellite, to provide information to a broad list of customers.

Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) was formed in the early 1990’s as a response to increasing demand for medium and high resolution 2D and 3D satellite image data.
