As been shown more than once that the web cam is in fact facing NE and not NW,so how is it you still stick by this you tubers word and keep saying it
is facing NW?
Because the line of site in the video I put up and the line of site in the NE facing web cam are different. The web cam with line of site from my
video is no longer available on the site. Convenient. There are a bunch of videos on You Tube from around the time of my video saying that west
facing web cams have been removed. Conspiracy? Or just more lunacy from the segment of the public that doesn't lap up label changes and other
Astronomy and the internet interpretation of it have married. The Justice of the Peace was Homeland Security (or, more correctly, government
contractors.) It's a beast but not one that, informed, we can't deal with.
But you see, at this point, you are literally, very, very, VERY literally, are ignoring (and I do mean that word in every way, shape and form) the
evidence that is being presented to you to show that the camera that is present today is pointing is the exact, same direction as the camera
from the video..
You have been shown that there is NO mistake. the pictures from the YouTube video, and the pictures from the camera there today, line up perfectly.
You have offered absolutely NO evidence to contradict this, except to keep insisting on saying that the LOS is not the same. Which is a lie. Period. A
bald face, lie.
Also, while we are on the subject. NO object can hide be hind the sun AND rise up from the southern part of the solar plane, and NOT be seen by the
entire southern hemisphere of the Earth. Allow me to demonstrate:
Here is a model of the Sun and the Earth. The sun with a diameter of 880,000 miles, and the Earth with a diameter of just under 8,000 miles:
Yes, the Earth is hard to see, but it's that very small blue spec to the right of the very large golden sphere.
Now, let us move the Earth out to about 93,000,000 miles where it sits away from the sun:
At this point, the Earth is so small compared to the sun and our distance to it, all you can see is my X,Y,Z moving tool to the right of the
As you can also see, it is physically impossible for an object to be both behind the sun, and approaching the Earth from south of the solar
Glare: yes, the sun's glare can hide object. Objects that are extremely close to it. Some objects, like Mercury, can be seen by the casual observer
if conditions are right, and they have a flat horizon to view from (like the ocean, or vast grasslands.).
So then, your magical planet must much closer to the sun. Much closer. How close is it? Can you tell us?
Could you also tell us how it can be that close to the sun, and yet, violate orbital mechanics?
You see, it would have to violate orbital mechanics. Because if it is that close to the sun, it would have a tremendous amount of orbital velocity.
Much more than the Earth's at 93 million miles, and much faster than Mercury which is about 36 million miles out. Mercury that goes around the sun in
just 88 Earth days.
Which means it can not stay "behind" the sun.
Not unless it was orbiting the sun at the same distance as the Earth. That would be the only way.
But if that were the case, then there is nothing to worry about. Planets do not just suddenly decided to get up and leave their orbits.
But there is another problem with it being in Earth's orbit: it would still affect things. Especially NEOs and some comets.
And there would be no hiding that. Not from the millions of amateur astronomers out there. Some, who have equipment that rivals some universities
(amateur simply means they don't get paid for it.).
