The Radius of an Orbit found from the Radius of the Orbiter. This only applies to orbiters having axial rotation. An experiment: A bicycle with wheels of 10″ radius cycles round a velodrome and completes the course in 740 turns. This makes the radius of the velodrome track 10″ x 740 = 7400″ (or 616.6 […]Read More Is this magic?
The length of a degree is in a ratio to the radius of a circle. (The centre of the circle is the eye! The viewing device). Whatever length of unit is used to define one, equally dictates the other. Earths radius of 3963 miles produces a degree length of 24887.64 ÷ 360 = 69.13 miles. […]Read More A formula for finding the length of a degree.
Axial rotation describes a point on the edge of a plane that moves at right angles to its centre in a way that will cause it to first approach, then recede from any given direction. In other words, if you place a marker on a wheel standing on the ground, that marker will first travel […]Read More “The moon rotates on its axis” Oh, no it doesn’t!
Data used for calculating moons distance from earth: Earths dimensions: Wikipedia Moons rise/set times – Time and Date Moons location above earth: Sub Solar/Lunar Point The diagram above shows the minimum distance for an object to be seen by half the planet simultaneously. Any farther, then like the sun, half the planet […]Read More The moons distance revisited
The second diagram below shows the minimum distance for an object to be seen by half the planet simultaneously. Any farther, then, like the sun, half the planet would see the object and its distance could not be calculated using rise/set observations. But the moon cannot be observed simultaneously over 180˚. For example, when it […]Read More The moon’s distance – calculations explained
DATA: Earth’s circumference is 24887.64 miles( 40044.2 km) 24887.64 x 365.25 cycles= 90900210 miles The radius of this circle is 1447485.7miles, the distance to the sun The sun appears to be 0.5degrees The length of the circle divided by 720(360×2) will give the real diameter of the sun 90900210/ 720 =12625miles( 20313.6 km) You may […]Read More Distance to the Sun
It is described as a process whereby the earth wobbles on its axis in such a way that every 2160 years, on the Spring equinox (March 21/22) a new zodiac sign will rise just as the sun gives a new dawn. On the Spring equinox, half an hour after the sun had risen, Aquarius followed Pisces. […]Read More THE PRECESSION AND RETURN OF THE HEAVENLY KING
It was not until man began to explore the universe with telescopes that he began to consider the question of the speed of light. In the early seventeenth century, the famous Italian scientist, Galileo, first attempted to measure the speed of light, unsuccessfully. But, about fifty years later, the Danish astronomer, Ole Römer, in 1676, measured the speed of light by […]Read More The Speed of Light
All astronomical measurement is only possible using predictable cycles of motion. A ‘Day’ is one turn of the Earth on its axis. A ‘Year’ is one cycle of the Earth round the Sun. There is also the moon’s cycle of 27.32 days, and Precession of the Equinoxes, which I will discuss later. Our measure of […]Read More The God Equation
Our moon is still as mysterious and magical as when our ancestors accorded it god-like powers. Second, only to the sun in its influence on Mother Earth, it causes the oceans to move, affects the growth of all life and most definitely stirs the imagination. Yet we still know very little about it. Obviously, I […]Read More Distance to the Moon
