Then I guess the Heliocentric model is wrong, huh Pete? LOL. Seriously, don't introduce Heliocentric theories as facts which do not rebut the inconsistency I have shown with the model.
The moon's speed is constant, period. 2 cars are traveling on a highway the same direction. One at 60 MPH one at 65 MPH. They have a different relative velocity to each other and to the pedestrian watching them go by, but they still have a constant velocity. If you know of some source claiming the speed of the moon varies to maintain a relative velocity to the Earth of 2,288 MPH throughout its orbit, you need to post that source. The moon would have to come to a stop and travel backwards (the opposite direction it was traveling during full moon phase) at 64,712 MPH during the new moon phase to maintain a relative velocity with the Earth of 2,288 MPH. Remember Earth (our frame of reference) is flying in a linear direction at 67,000 MPH. It would then have to stop and change direction and velocity again to maintain its relative velocity to Earth.
