Flew a early dawn patrol in my LaGG-3 from Novorossisk northwest to the German base at Anapa. It was a gorgeous, radiant dawn and the sun rose pink and glowing in the west as I flew towards it....

Things were different back in the 1940's. The Earth rotated in the opposite direction back then.

Yeah, but you tell that to the young 'uns these days...

A magnetic compass has a tendency to get wobbly at the higher latitudes.
A gyro compass has no problem up here.

Theory-1: Looking out the window, along the wing, you might have noticed a german cross - the germans flew captured Laggs as well http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Theory-2: Time does indeed go backwards as you approach the poles, so the sunset actually looks like a sunrise.

blah blah blah

i think time should go faster in everest than in a deep

thats why the moon landing were faked moon has different gravity so time goes at a different rate

radio comunication should sound like if they were pitufos

I'm going to try this tonight.

Go science! http://media.ubi.com/us/forum_images/gf-glomp.gif

Here's a good link:

I think Einstein beat you to it.

Heh, indeed, let's quickly calculate what the difference actually is!

From Schwarzschild metric for gravitational time dilatation:

t1/t2=Sqrt(1-2GM1/r1c^2)/Sqrt(1-2GM1/r1c^2)

where t=time, G-gravitational constant, M-mass (1-earth, 2-moon), r-radius of observer (from the centre of 1-Earth, 2-Moon), c-speed of light).

t1/t2=0,9999999993=1-7,e-10

Practically it means that there is a difference between earth time and moon time for 1 second every 50 years. Are you still sure we should be able to observe the difference in time rate between Earth and Moon?

The original poster was stoned, thus the seeing of things backwards.

As for the moon, well it's still there ain't it!
