Solar PointI don't know. I know what the subsolar point is, it's the point in a orbit (of an object around a planet) where the sun is as close to overhead as it can get. Am I close?

if this is true then the solar point would most likely be noon on earth. or at scale (since he said a satelite to the sun) it could be when the center of the galaxy is closest to overhead earth of course that could be the galactic point. im not really sure either.

The sub-solar point is the point on the Earth where the sun the sun is directly overhead. Currently, the sub-solar point is Tamaulipas, Mexico.

The sun is the centrl point of the solar system.

The "sub-solar point" is the point on Earth where the Sun is straight up, at a 90 degree angle to the ground. This point moves around the Earth each day as the Earth rotates, and appears to move north and south over the course of the year. The sub-solar point is exactly on the equator at the moment of the two equinoxes. In March, the sub-solar point is moving north as it crosses the equator; in September, the sub-solar point is moving south across the equator. In June, the sub-solar point creeps up to the Tropic of Cancer and then heads south again. In December, the sub-solar point gets all the way south to the Tropic of Capricorn at the winter solstice.

the point of drawing a solar system is to show where the planets, moons, stars and stuff all come together

No. The "sub-solar" point is that point on the Earth where the Sun is STRAIGHT UP from there.

A "solar still" is a device used for purifying water from damp waste or brackish water

It is the sub-solar point. It is the point where the Sun is directly overhead. The sub-solar point has a latitude equal to the Sun's declination at any moment, so all points on Earth between latitudes of ±23½ degrees can be the sub-solar point. If you want to know the direction to the sub-solar point at any instant from where you are, just point at the Sun and then move your arm vertically downwards so that it points horizontally. If you want to know the distance to the sub-solar point, measure the Sun's angle relative to overhead where you are. The distance (in nautical miles) is 60 times that angle in degrees.

the point is solar energy is to save money and to reduce less technology things.

During a total solar eclipse, at one point it will be almost completely dark.

Solar wind makes a comet's tail always point away from the Sun.

well the solar kamehameha could destroy the whole solar system while the instant kamehameha is just a point blank kamehameha, so its obvious that solar kamehameha is stronger

A solar collector that has motors and a guiding system to point towards the Sun which improves efficiency. A passive collector has no such systems.

! have you just been born!?? the whole point of solar energy is the sun. The sun's rays beam down and hit the panals and it makes solar energy

From the point of view of our survival, I would say that the earth, moon and sun are the critial members of the solar system.

South, unless you are in the southern hemisphere, then you would point it north. In the direction that captures the most sun

They don't. They point away from the sun as the solar wind sweeps material off the surface of the comet.

Solar noon shadows are longer in winter than in summer. The solar noon shadow in summer is at its shortest length when the Sun is at it highest point along the ecliptic.

Solar is still pretty much a novelty. Less than .1 percent of all power comes from solar. Hopefully, the science will evolve to the point it will become a workable alternative.

It makes the "tails" of the comets point away from the Sun.
