Or how a small sun can illuminate the bottom of cloud cover, when it never truly sets below the horizon? Some truly Olympic-level mental gymnastics are necessary.

Shine a flashlight on a flat object and hold it close. That's how FErs explain it. The sun is alot closer to the earth than we think, (according to them)

I admittedly do not know all that much about FEers, and would need to spend more time reading about how big and hot that their sun is, and the size of their Moon, its phases, solar/lunar eclipses, and the like. Just seems like its been more recently that I have seen a noticeable increase online about subjects and articles referring/related to FE beliefs, for whatever reasons.
