There have been some  very intriguing videos on the internet lately about the flat earth theory. The most compelling ones I have seen was the ones where a guy is using an infrared camera and able to see mountains and cities from very long distances, which if true proves the implied curvature of the earth is a lie. The other one was a video where they talk about having this pressurized air that we breathe every day being a bubble right next to the vacuum of space and how the air is supposedly held down to earth with gravity.

 

I had started thinking about these things and realized that if the earth is a sphere and the moon is in fact circling it and causing the ocean tides to rise and fall that we should see very abnormal tides during a solar eclipse. When that happens, the moon is basically on the wrong side of the earth and should be pulling the tides in that direction. This would cause a high tide in the daytime on the side of the earth where the eclipse is taking place. From what I have studied (I am not an astronomer or oceanographer) is that during a solar eclipse the sun and moon are lined up and there should be higher than normal gravitational pull in that direction.

 

I decided to check the tide levels on the east coast of the United States at the time when the August 21st, 2017 solar eclipse past over the east coast. I expected to see a high tide when it should be a low tide or tides that are very abnormal. You would think this would be a really big deal as a lot of ships and boats rely on high tides to get in and out of certain areas. Even if it did defy the laws of physics and not create an out of time high tide you would expect to at least see a very unusually high tide during or around the normal high tide time. If it were to pass over when it would normally be low tide, you would expect it to be drastically higher than a normal low tide.

 

 

I visited the NOAA website and expected to see tide data as decribed above. What I found was that when the solar eclipse passed over the east coast a high tide had just finished and was actually lower in respect to the previous and following days. At the very least you would have expected that high tide to be higher than the average of the proceeding and following days. This was very unexpected and leaves me wondering what exactly is goin on?

 

Here are links to the NOAA data and screenshots in case the data suddenly becomes unavailable.
