So how does GPS work, for instance?



Trilateration look it up


Dont worry I took the time for you.

It is funny when people think they are "smart" but are completely oblivious to the context of, and reason behind a question aimed at one specific person............

I know how GPS works my oblivious and slightly annoying, friend.

Sorry about that I just crawled out from my rock. That went to the wrong way.

I don't believe it. Miles and miles sure but not
thousands and hundreds of thousands of kilometres.

Iridium satellites operate in the low-earth orbit, at the altitude of approximately 780 km. www.satobs.org...

Your comments and your thread on that other forum shows how little you know about orbital mechanics and technology.

Satellites don't need to stop at a certain altitude; they are simply boosted to a higher orbit using propulsion (most commonly, ion thrusters) to increase their velocity. Higher velocity means higher orbit. It's also how they compensate for the tiny amount of atmospheric drag that is still a factor in the low-earth orbit.

I'm going to give you some advice. Go play Kerbal Space Program. It might be a fun as hell game but it will also give you a good idea on how satellites achieve an orbit around the Earth.

So essentially ISON is the Son of the Virgin Virgo, and she will give birth to it???

Watch for planet Mars-in the constellation of Mary to find the ISON?

It's the Morning Star of the Dawn?
Sion-Zion ?
"International Scientific Optical Network" = All Eyes On ISON ?

Ice On - Ice Man leaving his Trail ?
That's somewhat uncanny like an X-man.

It's like the Return of the Qing or something, the Comet of the Kaiser.
Caesar cometh?

That was fun.

Hmm, it then goes into Libra so that's Justice or Balance.

And is right next to Saturn and Mercury then, so that's 'transition' and 'finality-completion'.

Also as noted in prior thread possibly by same OP, that the Comma " , " is the Comet sign.
It's also the spermatozoa and the fish or claw or drop of water, among other things.
The Dragon, it's tail drags on. The Eye of Providence, etc.

I am just really surprised about the whole "Astrology" side of this, it's actually very significant.

I guess all eyes will be on ISON to see if it falls into the sun and becomes one.

I've checked with Stellarium, and it's the same as for everybody else in the world - ISON rises in the East approximately 1hr before dawn.


Thank you so much for the information! And also for the great software tip
This thing looks great!

Like many I just hope it survives its trip round the sun!

That image is absolutely stunning! It's my desktop wallpaper now.


Charles Bell reports:

Using TheSky6Pro I followed ion tail out to star GSC 4956:539 to get a a click distance between position of the comet and GSC 4956:539 or tail length of 03° 02' 10" with Position angle PA ~= 297 degrees as measured to middle of initial part of tail.
From geo center MPC ephemeris
earth distance delta 0.891 AU
solar distance r 0.584 AU
phase 81.3 degrees
gives corrected tail length of 7215910 km or 0.04824 AU

In other words, ISON's tail is well over 7 million km long!

Is it actually green like that? That's so pretty.

I wanna touch it!

Thanks again Cheesy for another great thread.

Considering the tail is supposedly over 7million km long, and providing it doesn't disintegrate. Do you think we'll we'll be able to see a curved tail as it goes round the Sun?

I don't know at what angle we'll be looking at it, whether it'll be totally back-lit by the Sun / invisible.

where did you see the tail being 7 million km long? from what iv'e seen its just 3-4000 miles!

I wonder what properties makes the coma and tail light up/glow?

is it the light from the sun reflecting the ejected material?

If its the sun is reflecting the material, where does the tail material go, the tail has a end! but should it not be possible to see the reminense of the tail material for much longer? or does it really disperse that thin.

Are comets always the same speed?
If the comet was slower would the coma/tail be wider and vise versa.

Does the ejected material speed up the comet? much like a rocket engine together with the pull of the sun/planets
this is proberbly basis knowledge in gravity class but i did not attend that day

What makes a comet create a tail, i read/heard that it was the heat from the sun, but the amount of water ejected seems to be very small compared to the amount of dust. studies determined that Comet ISON is expelling roughly 130 pounds (60 kg) of water and 112,000 pounds (51,000 kg) of dust every minute. These shed materials create Comet ISON's coma, dust tail and dust trail.
Dirty snowball i know, just seems to be way more dirt than snow!

Im left feeling pretty ignorant here, and find i understand very little about comets.
I hope someone can/will answer my naive questions.

Satellites are a hoax, an idea derived from a science fiction writer.


What? Must say I'm intrigued. Care to tell me what my satellite TV dish is pointing at?
