That's just the thing Simon, they do deny this...
In short Cluesforum & it's contributors have some work to do in regards to this topic...
(i) Verify as many 'Satellite' observations* as possible & get an altitude via equation
(ii) Find an (alive) amateur astronomer who saw, with his own eyes, NEA's pre-1957
(ii) Find some reference to these things in the thousands of years of human literature
If these are done then great, you've solved it... and provided a well founded alternative theory to the Neutral observer.
Comets Demystified, Asteroids Discovered
An engraving shows Tycho Brahe, who proved that comets lie beyond Earth's atmosphere.
"The discovery of asteroids, celestial bodies that are closely related to comets, soon followed. Only forty-three years after the first confirmed return of a periodic comet in 1758, an astronomer sighted the largest asteroid in the solar system. At the time, scientists thought this object was a small planet. And for a while, as other large asteroids were discovered, these bodies were routinely called "minor planets." Eventually, though, it became clear that they represented an entirely new class of celestial bodies—hunks of rock and metal wandering through the dark gulfs of the solar system along with the comets."
Astronomers continued to use direct visual observation to find asteroids until 1891. In that year, German astronomer Max Wolf introduced a new, much more effective method for the search—photography. After mounting a camera on his telescope, Wolf made the first photographic discovery of an asteroid—named Brucia—in December 1891. (He knew it was an asteroid and not a star because he left the camera's shutter open for several hours; the stationary stars appeared as sharp dots on the photographic plate, whereas the moving asteroids left long trails of light on the plate.) Using this technique, Wolf was able to find four asteroids in a single night (September 7, 1896), considered an incredible achievement at the time. During his career, he discovered a total of 232 asteroids. This record was soon broken by his assistant, Karl Reinmuth, who found 284 asteroids.
Thanks to photography, literally thousands of asteroids were discovered in the early years of the twentieth century. So many new asteroids came to light, in fact, that astronomers lacked the time and resources to track and study them all properly. One of the most successful of the asteroid and comet hunters of that era, American amateur astronomer Joel H. Metcalf, put it this way:
The rapid and continuous multiplication of discoveries, since the invention of the photographic method for their detection, has introduced an embarrassment of riches which makes it difficult to decide what to do with them.
Indeed, many astronomers became bored with finding asteroids and began to view them as useless cosmic garbage littering the heavens. In the 1930s, therefore, asteroid research came almost to a halt. It was not until about 1970, when the U.S. space program opened up fresh avenues for such research, that a new generation of astronomers showed renewed interest in asteroids.

A moon doesn’t have to be gigantic — our minimoons can be as small as one meter across. But they are definitely orbiting us, sometimes for a year or more.
Mikael Granvik (formerly at University of Hawaii at Manoa and now at Helsinki), Jeremie Vaubaillon (Paris Observatory) and Robert Jedicke (UH Manoa) have been simulating these minimoons and determined the Earth definitely has more than one moon at any given time.
While the typical minimoon might hang around for around nine months, some might orbit for decades.

Ballistic physics shows what would happen to a rocket or satellite. Either it falls back to Earth or it flies off into space. There is no in between. If energy were used to try to maintain some kind
of orbit, it would still be falling. If its gravity is negated, it flies off into space. Do the experiment. Twirl an object on a string as fast as you can and let it go. If the race track disappeared while a car was driving in the upside Hotwheels track loop, the car would fly off in a straight line. We are expected to believe a rocket can be weightless and still attracted to the Earth. Do the experiment with centrifuges here on Earth or look at them online. A washing machine disproves what NASA has been showing us. They need another force of some kind to explain the object staying in orbit.
Poetry and choice of words is important as the world we know as real is just art. By the time enough of us wake up and peak behind the curtain the man who once sat there will be long gone. And perhaps we will see nobody has been running the show for a long while.

I'm not trying to tell anyone what to think when I post here. If you've read what I wrote and already understand those subjects, I can't and won't tell you to 'think different'. I'm getting too old for debating and am way more interested in reading what other's think about the nonsense we're sold as real.
