Re: Axial rotation measurement anomaly *Update on pg 21 - Problem Solved*
Don't know if this relevant, but if the measurement of 6 arcminutes corresponds to a surface movement of around 9 meters, then could this be attributed as being a Chandler Wobble? I'm no scientist but have just Googled "earth wobble effects" and wiki came up with that.
Check it out.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29190143


Chandler wobble is far, far smaller. Too small for me to detect with my telescopes, let alone with a telephoto lens. 6 minutes of arc corresponds to 6 nautical miles or about 11 kilometers of "surface movement." Ridiculous, isn't it? That's why it's extremely likely to be measurement error from flexure, settling, etc.

Ummm taking the measurements with two different instruments..both coming up with the same findings does seem to considerably lessen the degree of falsehood in the measurement, although i suppose a malfunction in one and a malfunction in the other are both possible at the same time..the odds are against it.

If Polaris actually IS 6 arcminutes off, then you could roughly guesstimate how the time it took.

It was mentioned somewhere that the oceanic floor lifted by 10 m during the boxing day earthquake of 2004 in Hiti. The Japan earthquake in 2011 uplift the oceanic floor by 50 m. Now if 10 m can affect the axial rotation what would 50 m do?

It's impossible for this to be true without many, many people knowing about it. And not just pro's, people like me as well. So far I've heard nothing. That most likely means something went wrong last night with the tripod. I was joking that if it's real and there's still nothing heard about it except from me, then it must be because they're killing everyone and I'm next.

Mods, please forgive my cross-posting this from the other thread, but I believe this anomaly deserves its own thread until resolved. Updates will be forthcoming.

While testing the rather silly claim that the constellation Orion moved out of place, I found that Orion was where it should be, but the offset from Polaris to the north celestial pole appears to be off from the expected value by about 6 arcminutes. This may be due to flexure or settling in the flimsy camera tripod, but the only way to know will be to repeat this measurement telescopically. Further posts will detail repeated measurements starting tomorrow if weather allows.

It's been over an hour. Either the shit hit the fan or he fell asleep. Like I should be doing. Or, maybe he is on the phone with NASA. Got to get past pressing 1 a dozen times before you can choose English to proceed. Then there's a ton of red tape to fight your way through which sends you to the janitor. After you convince him he doesn't need to sweep away and hide any dirt, you get a security. need to convince him you arent on GLP by talking about the latest on Fox news, then you get a scientist. When you convince him you aren't asking about Nibiru he may answer.

These things take time.
 Quoting: Serendipitous


It's probably gonna take a while. When he makes a video, he spends a good amount of time on it.
 Quoting: #Geomagnetic_Storm#


Not making a video. Somethings not adding up on the axial rotation measurement (and you all thought I was a "shill" - I'm honest, even when it's very likely nothing at all). Tonight I took a shortcut and just used my SLR with telephoto lens on a tripod rather than hauling out the whole telescope. I also only had a few minutes of a gap between clouds and then it was clouded up completely. But something about this picture I took isn't adding up...
[link to i319.photobucket.com]
I'm consistently coming back to a distance of about 35 arcminutes for Polaris from the north celestial pole. That ain't right. It should be just shy of 41 arcminutes. Now, I've never calibrated this lens astrometrically before tonight, but I used the Polaris image itself as well as an earlier image I shot a few months back and they both resulted in about the same image scale of about 8.2 arcseconds per pixel at the resolution I'm using for analysis. Maybe I screwed my math up somewhere along the way, I'm running on very little sleep and I need to get some now if I'm every going to.

For the sake of sanity in the thread and so that people don't start killing themselves before I can solve this mystery, I've never tried to use my SLR camera by itself for this particular measurement before (I've always used my telescopes with the SLR catching the light at prime focus) and the 300mm telephoto lens I have is rather heavy. I'm thinking something settled or flexed on my camera tripod over the 8 minute exposure, causing the star trails to be artificially shifted by about 6 arcminutes (and for what it's worth, that's a small angle, one fifth the diameter of the moon's disc, it's not something Bubba in his trailer is going to notice just by casually looking and comparing by eye to a mountain range).

The telescopes I normally use are much beefier and sturdier. I'll repeat the measurement telescopically tomorrow. If telescopic measurement confirms it... I'll probably take a sniper bullet in the head because there's no way that kind of change could be kept secret without a mass assassination of every person like me.

My grandmother lives near the Red River on the Ok/Tx border, and the past three year winter has arrived in January and is lasting through March. Last year they had two massive ice storms move through; once in late February and then two weeks later in March.
The summer months proved worse, with not a single storm from May-September. There were massive thunderstorms and not a few number of tornadoes (common in Texas, yes, but the metroplex DFW area almost NEVER gets one [perhaps the elevation???] as they seem to occur in less occupied areas [perhaps due to the heat the concrete and asphalt retains in the 'urban jungles'??]). I am not implying that tornadoes in Texas are uncommon, as they happen frequently in the Spring/Fall weather changes; they are seemingly larger and more frequent, according to my grandmother.

You know Astro even if you find that your numbers are incorrect we still have the major issue that everyone seems to be in denial of and its still right in front of our eyes every day.

So Even if the stars are in alignment and the moon isn't upside down and the sun isn't super hot. The WEATHER is absolutely without a doubt NOT Normal.

And the thing is.. One day its winter weather and the next its Fall or Spring and sometimes feels like Summer again. This I think we can ALL agree on!

So if the Earth has a Major Wobble it would be a true statement that there Will be times when your measurements will seem normal and at other times they will not.

So the Measurements Must be taken everyday for a few months and compared.

However if it was a Permanent tilt of the Axis well then that would show up everyday the same I assume unless we have both wobble and tilt.

The Point is, if it isn't any of the above.. Then what in the world is causing the weather fluctuations!

A major Wobble would explain everything however.

No way, not telescopically. I'm talking about measuring the position of the axis of rotation with about 4-8 times the angular resolution than what I had last night, so not only will the mount be sturdier, but the angular resolution will be far higher. It's a more stringent test; it could detect a much smaller shift that a telephoto lens would miss.

There been crustal/tectonic displacement that is causing this.
The ground shifted north 6-8 degrees. And it was reported by people like george kavassilas awhile ago when chile and japan earthquakes happened.

Our south pole can be starting to lock on to a north pole of a passing body as well. That would shift us north.

No way, not telescopically. I'm talking about measuring the position of the axis of rotation with about 4-8 times the angular resolution than what I had last night, so not only will the mount be sturdier, but the angular resolution will be far higher. It's a more stringent test; it could detect a much smaller shift that a telephoto lens would miss.

Okay, so in the rare event that your initial findings were indeed correct, what does this mean exactly?
