The sun's direct light is seen on the mountain's surface... the angles of light from the source, and shadowing effects all reveal truth in plain sight; proving to me, the sun is close to earth. This clip is taken with my cell phone just a few days ago in the early afternoon. Location is approx 30 miles east north-east from this volcanoe known as Mt Hood in Oregon, USA; elevation 12,000+ ft above sea level. This is a tiny example from my daily observances of the sun and its light/shadowing effect upon the mountain. I have many other vids and pics to the same setting backdrop of nature's effect, evidencing the close sun to earth... and within miles to me, like its a reflected light thru a glassy or reflective/magnifying surface of some sort that follows the viewer with movement in visuals and phisicality to transfer light and heat. Magnifying-glass-like light pinpointing, but not converging to the pinpoint on us fully.
