Saw the comments wondering why the US Navy would be taking pictures of the sky.
The United States Naval Observatory has been around since 1830. Some people might wonder why the Navy would have an observatory for the study of the
stars, but the answer is quite simple: Navigation.
Having accurate star charts, along with an accurate time piece (clock), and a well made sextant was vital when navigating the large oceans of our
planet. (of course now a days, GPS comes in quite handy, but the US Navy still teaches and uses star navigation. Simply put: if all your electronics
were to fail, you'd still have a reliable way to find your way home!
Here's a link to their site if anyone is interested:
S&F to the OP for an interesting read, and interesting theory, and for the time spent on putting it together.
I'm afraid I don't buy it though. Heh.
As has been pointed out, our star, Sol, matches more closely to the stars make up in the Milkyway as opposed to Sag.
The orbital velocity of our sun around the Milkyway's core far exceeds the relative velocity crossing the plane.
The solar plane that most of our system objects (planets, astroids, etc) might be at a 90 deg angle when compared to the galactic plane, but this
doesn't really prove anything. Here's why:
Star Formation: When planets form around a star, they do so out of the accretion disk that surrounds that star, which follows the star's spin. A
star's spin is completely random due to the fact that it is based upon the eddies and currents that form from the first clumping of interstellar mater
that begins to clump together to form the star.
There for it is completely possible for stars in the Milkyway to have planets that are 90 deg from the galactic plane. If you thought that all stars
in the Milkway are suppose to have their planets lined up with the galactic plane, I'm afraid you're mistaken, and should not be used as evidence that
our solar system originated outside the Milkyway.
As for some of our planets being out of alignment (read that as Uranus), it's pretty much accepted that Uranus got knocked over on it's side by a
early impact, and the same goes for Venus, so much so that it literally flipped the planet over, and is why it rotates opposite compared to all the
other planets in the system (sun rises in the west there). Given the rather violent nature of planet forming during the beginning of a solar systems
this isn't too hard to believe.
Still an interesting OP and well presented (unlike some OP's that I've seen on here that post an outlandish idea in a single sentence, then point to a
paragraph of external text as their only piece of evidence....those posts drive me up the wall), so I give you a thumbs up on how you presented your
material. Keep posting!
