Did NASA really say that the sun will rise in the west?

Did NASA really suggest that the sun will rise from the west, or is this a myth that is circulating around the Internet?

  • No, NASA never said the sun will rise in the west. I did go out and checked out your link - https://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/the...
    And, the word "West" doesn't even appear on the page. The only way for the sun to appear to rise in the west on Earth is if our rotation is reversed.

    Good luck with that.

  • Did you know the word "gullible" isn't in the Oxford dictionary?

    There is no such statement in the article you link about the Sun rising in the West. And, just because the Sun's magnetic poles flip, it does not cause any objects to flip or realign. East will still be East. West will still be West. North will still be North. And South will still be South.

    And, it doesn't show that there is ANY possibility of the Sun rising in the West.

    This happens approximately every 11 years. This is a regular part of the solar cycle.

  • It seems to me that you did not bother to read the article to which you linked in your second update. Nowhere in that article does it say the Sun will rise in the West. It does say that the Sun's magnetic field flips every 11 years. So it has flipped at least 4 times in my lifetime and yet during my entire life the Sun has always risen in the East.
