Chasing the Sun

The Vedic statement that time varies in different celestial regions predates theories of relativity by centuries. We've heard how traveling west by airplane during the day, produces the phenomenon of 'chasing the sun," or approaching continuous daylight. Flying in an airplane or rocket at the equator, at an earth groundspeed of approximately 1,000 mph makes this a reality.
