The Sun that Never Sets
It has been known to many, as it should be known to all, that Night never seems to fall upon the world of MD. The Sun is ever-present in the Sky, and until very recently was rarely seen to move at all. As a student of Astronomy these facts confused and intrigued me, how could this be possible? You may say it is purely through the result of Magic, but I would scoff at that. Magic may seem like an unlimited source of power, but it must draw strength from somewhere, and the strength required to hold the Sun in the sky would be Enormous.
I prefer to take the view that we can explain most of what we see through science, and that even the most powerful magics operate through known channels of science and perception. That is I believe that we can explain the oddities of the Sun with scientific knowledge and allow for the possibility of Magic to influence certain things. Ideally we should strive to explain things in as simple of a way as possible, as that is the way that Nature works.
The theories I intend to Explore in this Article have been discussed with many, and argued against by many more. Through these discussions I believe we have brought our Theory to a final form, or at least as final as our Observations will permit.
The theories on the pages that follow are based on the following Observations:
- The Sun appears to Move very little, or none at all.
This depends on how carefully you make your Observations. With the naked eye it was only recently that the movement of the Sun was visible, before it took careful measurements and observation to detect it. However the Motion is the same in both cases, just more pronounced now (the next Page has a more in-depth description).
- The Moon, though once present, has disappeared from view.
Ancient record does show a Moon once existed around the world. Today it is not Visible as it should be (even accounting for the constant Daylight), but exactly what has happened to it is not know exactly.
- Night has Ceased to be
Little is known about this, what has happened to the Night is the primary motivator of my research. While I will present my own thoughts about this, please note there are many ways to approach this Phenomenon and that there are likely many forces at work.
