Hang on, that's not what he was saying, but that our sun orbits Alcyone and both orbit Sirius which is itself fixed relative to the center of the
galaxy and rotates with the galactic rotation. At one point I noticed that he called it the center of the galaxy, but that wasn't what was presented.
edit on 14-12-2012 by NewAgeMan because: (no reason given)
Our sun does not orbit the star Alcyone.
Alcyone is one of the Pleiades. It's a binary star with two brown dwarfs and while THEY have enough gravity to cause all four to orbit a central
point, there's not enough gravity to impact our solar system.
It was formed 70 million years ago -- 5 billion years AFTER our sun was born.
Our sun does not orbit Sirius. It's too far away. Alpha Centauri is closer and larger and we don't orbit that star, either:
