I use a telescope with a clock drive and a nearly perfect alignment. Polaris always falls in the center of my finder's cross hairs. Since the last few weeks it is no longer the case. It is as Alderamin has become closer to my cross hairs . Take a look yourselves tonight .

the planet has shifted by around 3 inches since the Chile quake, would this be the cause?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 771077


If the earth's axis were to move relative to Polaris, this would be evident with long-exposure (at least several minutes) photography taken with a stationary camera. The more the earth's axis deviates from Polaris alignment, the image of Polaris would become a larger and larger radius arc instead of a small dot as it should be now.

Ok, if true, then simply put, your finder scope is the only thing that has "shifted".

Re: I think Polaris has shifted. It is no longer in my cross hair. Take a look yourselves.
Polaris would have to move thousands of miles for it to be evident on your telescope. Isn't more likely that the position of your telescope has changed? A comparatively small earth movement would be enough to throw your alignment off. Has Polaris changed relative to the other stars, or just relative to your telescope?

OP if you have a permanent telescope mounted on a pillar sort of thing then the earth quake the other day will have moved the alignment a touch.

Other than that Polaris has not moved the earth did.

You are correct, Op. Many people have noticed that during the past week something is wrong with our lean, and it is not the tinsy bit NASA or whomever is claiming the Earth's tilt or rotation has changed. We are leaning somewhat to the left, as one looks toward the Sun from the northern hemisphere during the day. Leaning, I might add AWAY from Nibiru, ala Planet X.

Polaris Az 358 53 23
Alt 53 39 37

Alderamin Az 346 23 45
Alt 27 58 44

That's a 12 degree displacement Az wise, and a 26 degree Altitute wise. Those on the payroll who have the assignment of claiming all is normal will scream otherwise, and tell you that you are incompetent. Let them rot in hell where they deserve to go. YOU believe your own eyes. This, from LA, just recently. You are not alone!

I always use Orion as center. In LA tonight it shifted horizontally to right of center from last night. Way out of position from last night. Usually stars rise in east set in west, tonight they seem to be going from south to north (a N Pole lean to the left at night)

Today, I was struck with the very very VERY obvious mislocation of the sun on my way home from work. It was WAY too far to the NW for this time of year and it happened in only a day's time. Yesterday it was in the standard SW position that it has been in for a few years (which I never though was quite right anyway). I drive a 7 mile rural road to and from work every day that has no curves and 2 medium to small size hills. Straight as an arrow. On a clear winter day you can see the stop sign or tail lights at the top of the last hill from the top of the first hill 6 miles away. Two times a year for a few weeks each, this road will be torture to drive because the sun shines directly into your eyes going to work in the morning, and coming home at night is the same way. The last few weeks, the sun has bounced from one side of the road to the other. Today it was at the 1:30 position where yesterday it was at the 11:00 position. The road is 12:00. (N pole lean to the left at sundown for Sun too far in the NW)

Yes, During the summer we noticed instead of the sun being in the usual SW position it seemed to steadily be in the NW position. I noticed it the other day with a clear sky. My backyard fence faced directlly west, with a tree in the SW position and my garden gate in the NW position. One day it seems the sun is in the correct SW position and the next moment it's in the NW position. Hard to miss when observed. Noticing the sun should be in a position at a particular time, but seems to have shifted more to the NW than ever at this time. I've noticed it for many months. (NW at sundown is lean to the left)

Columbus, OH.
Yesterday, a wonderful day, my granddaughter, Claudia, was in Columbus, Ohio taking her State Boards. She had started her examinations at 8 o'clock in the morning. By 3:15 pm, EST, new license in hand, she headed home. Being unfamiliar with the layout of the city, she was heavily dependent upon her GPS system. She turned it on, but kept getting a message that the signal was lost. This was the only problem she had had all day. Funny thing was, it was a beautiful, clear, sunny day in Columbus. The weather was like Spring.

And from California on the day OF the quake, after the Chile quake:

I was driving down the coast of California on Saturday afternoon [Feb 27] into the late evening. I know the route well but I turn on my GPS just for the company. Just outside of LA I stopped for gas and then continued on southbound I-5. The GPS was telling me to "turn around when possible" and head in the opposite direction (north) to go to San Diego from LA. It was several miles before it reoriented itself and started giving the right directions.

Re: I think Polaris has shifted. It is no longer in my cross hair. Take a look yourselves.
I use a GPS device in my car in northeastern Pennsylvania, and I've done so for about 24 hours every weekend since October of last year. On Thursday night (Feb. 25) when we received about 14 inches of snow, the Garman brand GPS worked flawlessly as usual. However, on the following night (Feb 26), when we received just a dusting of snow, the GPS was going nuts all night. It stopped working about two or three times per hour, and when it was working it often showed me driving on the wrong street. Sometimes the street locations just floated up and down on the screen, as if the satellites were being buffed around in their orbits. I first noticed the GPS acting up around 5:30 pm eastern time on Friday afternoon, getting knocked out of commission 6 or more times per hour. The voice on the GPS would say "Satellite signal lost," or something to that effect. The screen would say 'weak satellite signal.' Usually the GPS is accurate to within half of a city block, or even better. It even tells me what alley or court I'm in when I'm between blocks. When the screen did work last Friday night, sometimes the streets would float up and down the screen, and they would be several blocks away. The GPS has never done that before, and I've used it almost 24 hours a week or more since October. Sometimes the street grid would rotate inexplicably on the screen.If I'm correct the quake occurred at 1:34 am eastern standard time, or 6:34 UTC on Saturday morning. At 1:30 am I picked up a young man in the Pennsylvania city of Scranton and drove him for 30 minutes south to the city of Wilkes-Barre. He took it upon himself to program the GPS for his street, and I told him it would probably lose the signal before we arrived. Interestingly, the signal held for the entire ride, but then it started acting up again around 2:15 am or so, about 45 minutes after the quake. On Saturday night into early Sunday morning the GPS worked perfectly again for 11 hours straight. My GPS has never acted up like this in the past. It's a Garmin brand, and the clerk at Best Buy told me it's the best brand to get because Garmin has the most satellites in the sky.

Houston, similar during September. I do photography daily of the sky, cloudships, ufo's. There is a parking drive that runs due west of my apartment. Makes it easy to track sun movement throughout the year. One afternoon it was due west as usual for that time of year. The next afternoon, I stepped out to point camera, but the sun wasn't due west. It was decidely north of it's expected position. More NW.

I posted about it, but of course got the usual comments about being a woo woo.

LOL. first of all the GPS cluster is owned and operated by Uncle Sam, NOT Garmin, and they ALL use the exact same satalights. Second, the signal was weak not due to weather but more likely they lost a satalight, or were performing an update to the system which happens from time to time. Third, you base your observations of a multi-billion dollar Satalight system compared to a 100.00 best buy special reciever. no WAY that could be the issue right?
