Thanks for the post Sophismata. I take it from your avatar that you are assuming the role of pedagogue. Thanks anyway.
Am I the only one who *doesn't* see a huge alien craft being denied by Nasa?
So if I understand your question you are asking if you are the only one that is not able to see the 31,000 mile long spaceship, the existence of which
is denied by NASA. I would respectfully suggest that you read "Ringmakers of Saturn" by Norman Bergrun and then give us your answer. Thanks.
If a real astronomer came in here and gave an expert opinion, would you even listen, or would her "it's likely a meteor" (or whatever) win
her an invitation to take her sciencey ways over to badastronomy.com?
I would consider the expert opinion of a 'real' astronomer the same as I would consider the expert opinion of a 'real' scientist: 'currently
accepted dogma' which should be taken into consideration when forming an opinion.
Secondly, though it may appear to not move perfectly straight, it probably IS moving perfectly naturally and straight but the probe taking the
photos may be adjusting its angle, etc. The object in question is likely much closer and smaller than Saturn, hence parallax would explain any motion
that's not noticed in the rings themselves.
If somebody asked me for an example of sophistry I would give them the above quote.
Thanks for your post sophismata.
