The Earth is Not Round


I always pictured our planet as a perfectly round ball orbiting the Sun. Thank you earthsky for setting the record straight. Earth is actually an “oblate spheroid” it bulges out at the north pole and dips in at the south. There is a 27 Km. difference between the¬†circumference at the equator and the poles.
