Mr. Blob possesses great curiosity... One day, he wished to observe the sun... Magical caliper in hand, he determined that the sun was forming a 3 degree angle from one end of the sun's diameter to another.

The Green Wonder knew from this information he can double check the sun's size...

Forming two right angle triangles with the triangle mid line allowed him to use trigonometry formulas...

Using trig, one has the power with degree measurements and collective height distance to determine the length of the base. The base being the radius...

His initial results received, he double checked the establishment's widely accepted values... They say the diameter of the sun is 864,327 miles, the radius 432,114 miles...

Unfortunately, with the distance of the sun being at 92,960,000 miles away and the radius being 432,114 (diameter 864,327 miles), the collective angle aperture for viewing would only be .54 degrees (.27 degrees for one half angle section)... Look at the difference between 432,114 miles for science and the observed 2,434,243 miles for the radius from earth... Too big of an error...

Mr. Blob sits in tears... The sun in the sky should be much smaller than told... Much, much closer... He reaches his fist into the air, lollipop in hand... A homemade Ti-2000 gives him strength to analyze... It would only be a tiny little speck in the sky...
