- I have been following the Earth view from the sun via satellite http://www.fourmilab.ch/cgi-bin/uncgi/Earth and the current latitude as of 11:15 PM Pacific time is 20° 16' north. At the current rate the sun will be at the Tropic of Cancer (23° 50') around June 1st - three weeks ahead of time. It will be really hard to hide the fact that the sun is beyond the tropic. I'm afraid that if the government spots this they may tamper or shut down access to the satellites.
View from Sun: 151453231 km above 20°31'N 23°13'W
