I know that grammatically "I sat on the couch", or "I set the cup on the table".
I know that if you are doing the action yourself then it is 'sat'. Why doesn't this apply to the sun? The sun is doing the action
So couldn't you say "I watched the sun sat" rather than "I watched the sun set? Maybe there is a simple answer.
I mean really, the sun doesn't do either right? The sun doesn't move. If anything the earth is what does all the moving. Thanks
