Is this magic?
The Radius of an Orbit found from the Radius of the Orbiter. This only applies to orbiters having axial rotation. An experiment: A bicycle with wheels of 10″ radius cycles round a velodrome and completes the course in 740 turns. This makes the radius of the velodrome track 10″ x 740 = 7400″ (or 616.6…

A formula for finding the length of a degree.
The length of a degree is in a ratio to the radius of a circle. (The centre of the circle is the eye! The viewing device). Whatever length of unit is used to define one, equally dictates the other. Earths radius of 3963 miles produces a degree length of 24887.64 ÷ 360 = 69.13 miles.…

Distance to the Sun
DATA: Earth’s circumference is 24887.64 miles( 40044.2 km) 24887.64 x 365.25 cycles= 90900210 miles The radius of this circle is 1447485.7miles, the distance to the sun The sun appears to be 0.5degrees The length of the circle divided by 720(360×2) will give the real diameter of the sun 90900210/ 720 =12625miles( 20313.6 km) You may…
