The Sun Changes its Position in Space…by August Tischner
The Sun changes its position in space, therefore it cannot be regarded as being “in a condition of rest.”
Si concedimus, eos, qui corpora in mundi spatio moveri eademque non moveri posse dicunt, insulsa loqui, praesumere non licet hominem astronomum talem sententiam elocuturum utque eam demonstraret operam daturum esse.

The Sun Changes its position in space…
Astronomical science, at the present day insists upon the system of Copernicus, which, as is well known, is based upon the theory of a fixed sun, and remains convinced of the incontrovertible truth and importance of this system, even after it has become an incontestable fact, that the sun changes its position; endeavoring to explain away this discrepancy by the sophism, that the sun may be considered as in a condition of rest. But the smallest movement of the sun overthrows the entire fabric of Copernicus. Unless we take into account the observations, made for the last 3000 years, respecting the movement of the sun in space, it is impossible to comprehend the solar system and its movements.
