I have some shocking news for you!!
.


.
Yeah, I see a problem here. Your pixel resolution is too small and the words are too blurry. That's a problem.
.
Every astronomical day is not exactly 24 hours duuh.
.
This has been the case long before the development of very accurate timekeeping.
Even today, occasionally they have to adjust universal time by one second since the motion of the sun and stars are constantly changing rates in very small increments. Even cesium clocks can't keep up with the changes.
.
We add a "leap year" every four years, but not EVERY four years.
After a few centuries, leap year is skipped. Surprise!
.
The night time stars change appearance every night in small degrees.
Therefore the winter star chart is different from the spring chart or the summer chart.
Do the surprises never cease? But wait, there's more...........
This has been known for thousands of years, but apparently it's "news" to someone with a meme program.
HAHAHA                                  
.
In fact, for several hundred years, astronomical clocks have kept track of the varying length of days all year long.
Some particular days are longer, others shorter, and that's just the way it is.
I know, it comes as a shock to flat-earthers, who have been dreaming fake dreams for who knows how many years.

Clearly the heliocentric explanation for seasons makes no sense.

Lol!  This is hysterical.  Not exactly 24 hours?  So what?  You pretend the difference between an astronomical or sidereal day is enough to make up for day/night difference?  That's a laugh.  The types of days are close enough in time amount to know that the so-called rotation of the ball earth doesn't work.

If I may,

The meme is a fallacy and I will show it to be one. Please bear in mind that I am a geocentrist myself but don't use false arguments because they are easily refuted and often with ridicule for the entire geocentric faction.

Assume the rising and setting of the sun is caused by the Earth rotating.
Assume the Earth orbits the sun once per year.

Now the meme claims that at the diametrically opposed equinox's or solstices the Earth should be indexed the same in reference to the celestial pole because they are six months apart respectively and the time of day should be skewed by 12 hours. This would hold true if six months were a multiple of 24(hours per day) but six months is not, it is rather one half a year. One year is 365.25 days (plus some change but for our purposes call it close enough) so half of that is 182 days and 15 hours. Therefore, starting with the summer solstice (only because the meme shows it to be high noon in the USA) and moving half a year toward winter, the meme author needs to rotate Earth another 15 hours. Half a year away would put the sun at 3 pm in the sky, not midnight as it shows. Gaining three hours every six months becomes one day every four years.

I hope I've helped.

Well, of course, to nescient flat-earthers, accuracy is out of the question. It's not exactly 24 hours and that's why the earth doesn't face the direction relative to the celestial sphere that would be expected if things were according to your INACCURATE OP here.
.
JoeZ tried to help, and did okay, actually.
But flat-earthers don't like to hear why their inane platitudes are wrong.
It pops their bubble. And their bubble gets a whole lot of popping.

Pop.. pop............ pop-pop....pop.....like popcorn!    :popcorn:      :ready-to-eat:      :jester:

Did you misspell macaroon or what?

It takes one to know one and you know 'em all.   :jester: Macaroons, that is.  :facepalm:

Flat-earthers have no intelligent reply because they're blind-sided by the TRUTH and have to re-group, again, to return with more gibberish that will fail like all the other gibberish they dredge up fails, infallibly.
