Hello All,

In these times of turmoil it pays to remember the good and the true. I thus place a post here on the Tychos to celebrate the rational power that a man can control if he puts his mind to it. He can collect data and assemble a working model and by sharing it, test it: even beyond his own lifetime!

I have just finished my third reading of Simon's book and have learnt a magnificent amount about astronomy, but, as important, about the history of astronomy which had remained hidden from my sight all my life.

Others should post here who have read the book and put down their thoughts.. it is a personal journey for each of us but ends with something stupendous...a vista of beauty vast and unspoilt.

Jupiter, Saturn and Mars rose early in the morning a week ago and I saw the 'ecliptic' plane that they were on so clearly in my minds eye, better than I had ever seen it before. But this time I saw them, ever so slowly, orbiting the Sun which orbits the Earth ....this is the privileged perception of a rational mind.

The TYCHOS year 2 in review

On Friday the 20th of Mars at the Vernal Equinox, Simon's model of the planetary movements – The TYCHOS had its second birthday (of official release).

The year 2019 has been a truly fantastic year for the TYCHOS.

At the beginning of the year, I managed to add astronomical positions to the TYCHOS simulator - Tychosium (Declination and Right Ascension) which makes it possible to compare the planetary positions in the TYCHOS model with observational data, and it checks out remarkably well. Especially considering this is an unfunded one-man research project that has been going on for seven years and that I have assisted in the last three years.

The outer planets – Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus were also added to TYCHOS during the year and the question if they are orbiting the Sun or the Earth was solved. The outer planets are orbiting the Sun as Tycho Brahe claimed in the 17th century. The idea was challenged at the time by Giovanni Battista Riccioli, the author of Almagestum Novum. But with the power of 3D simulation, we can conclude that the geometrical configuration that agrees with observations is a heliocentric one for the outer planets. So the geo-heliocentric model that Tycho Brahe gave birth to (and was later perfected by his assistant Longomontanus who gave Earth a daily axial rotation) still holds with the addition of the PVP-orbit that Simon has discovered.

Another remarkable discovery was that Halley's Comet agrees with TYCHOS and its strict axioms of circular orbits and constant speeds. Simon managed to devise an orbit for Halleys Comet in the Tychosium that agrees with several known historical observations of Halleys Comet. It was discovered during this research that many historical sightings of Halleys, for unkown reasons have been altered or omitted entirely in later records. It was also discovered that several comets that had been identified as other comets during passages of Halleys agree with the suggested orbit in Tychosium and that it is therefore likely that these comets were, in fact, Halley's Comet.

This last year we have also engaged in extended discussions with a seasoned astronomer. This however resulted in mostly demeaning language from his part and various futile attempts to invalidate the TYCHOS model. I think it is quite clear that the Copernican/Keplerian model is indeed an unshakable dogma in the present scientific climate - no matter how much evidence is laid forth to highlight its multiple paradoxes and absurdities; the TYCHOS model resolves each and all of these problems.

Perhaps we should do what a dissident in medicine - Stefan Lanka - did regarding the existence of the measles virus: set up a reward that can be claimed if it can be proved in court that the Copernican/Keplerian model agrees with basic logic and geometry. Simon has demonstrated (beyond reasonable doubt) that it doesn't.

I wish you all a great TYCHOS year! /Patrik

Thanks for your work on it Patrix. I was showing my Dad the Tychos simulator to show to him what I was talking about. He was at first very skeptical of the Tychos ideas, but he is extremely good at visualizing how the curves & mathematics work in relation to something once you show him just some brief examples. (as he is an electrical engineer who is naturally good at moving shapes around in his head)

I showed him the comparison of the Copernican model of the Earth-Mars-Deneb Algedi star alignments. Then I showed him how the Tychos simulator shows it. Using Simon's graphics taken from the different simulators.

I also told him that I don't know if the Tychos is the exact model, but it must be said it seems a far better model than the Copernican model.

He was questioning how Mars can influence the Sun's being so much smaller. But I gave him Simon's info on how other Stars have been found to be binary stars. With the closest star being a binary system, having the same ratio of size & distance as the Sun does to Mars.

Regardless it doesn't make any difference whether this 'makes sense' from ideas people had previously learned about how gravitation works between planets.. the reality is the reality. It must then be that those previous theories were wrong in how the relationship works.

QUORA CENSORSHIP :huh: :rolleyes:


So yesterday I was feeling a little bored and decided to post an answer at Quora to this question that someone had submitted : "WHY IS MARS AN INNER PLANET?"

Here's the answer I submitted :
Image

My above answer evidently remained online for a little while (and was visible to everyone) since it has had 22 views. Problem is, it is now visible only to me - since Quora's "Ministry of Truth" has decided to "collapse it":

"YOUR ANSWER HAS BEEN COLLAPSED"
Image

I have submitted an appeal that goes like this:

"I would appreciate to know precisely what Quora policy my answer has violated. Thanks."

:mellow:

Update (April 16, 2020): NO reply from the Quora administrators so far...

The aberration of light? :)

No, seriously, what are they afraid of? An orderly system?

It appears so.

THE ANALEMMA : AN UPDATE AS TO WHY THE SUN IS ALMOST NEVER "ON TIME"

Dear friends, "Simple Simon" will now further elaborate as to just why the Sun is almost never synchronized with our clocks (which of course tick at a constant rate).

In Chapter 26 of my TYCHOS book (which came out two years ago), I tried to explain and illustrate the analemma to the best of my capacities - and I still stand by everything that I wrote in my book. However, I now realize that the analemma can be explained in a far simpler manner. I just LOVE simplifying things! So here we go:

The "Analemma" is the name given to the 8-shaped pattern that our Sun traces in the sky over the course of a year (that is, if you take a picture of the Sun, say, at noon every day). The problem is, to this day, NO ONE has ever managed to provide a rational explanation as to why this 8-shape is ASSYMETRIC.

Here's a classic diagram of the Analemma. As you can see, the lower part of the Analemma is roughly 2.5 times wider than the upper part:
(This diagram is borrowed from an astronomy site - I have only added the blue and green zones)
Image

Now, there's of course no mystery as to why the Sun moves VERTICALLY (i.e. up and down) in the course of a year : this is due to Earth's 23.5° tilt. The "mystery" is why the Sun would also move SIDEWAYS - and why this sideways / lateral drift is far larger (as viewed from the Northern Hemisphere's) in the winter months than in the summer months.

This sideways drift causes our clocks to be "wrong" almost all of the time! Only on four occasions every year (Dec 24, Apr15, June16 and Aug29), our clocks will be correctly synched with the Sun (say, at noon - when the Sun is at the "mean zenith"). And this is why we have the "Equation of Time".

But WHY are those lateral oscillations of the Sun (summer months versus winter months) heftily ASSYMETRIC?

To be sure, this "specialist" website (which treats the Analemma extensively) provides no clear-cut answers to this crucial question: http://analemma.com/

The TYCHOS model, on the other hand, provides a "graphic" explanation for this crucial question - as illustrated in this new graphic of mine:

Image

The white dots in my above graphic represent an earthly observer / astronomer (let's call him "Joe") who takes a picture of the Sun every 21st day of each month for a full year. Since Joe will be carried around this trochoidal path (caused by Earth moving slowly at 1mph / or 1.6km/h around its PVP orbit), we can see just why he will end up with an ASSYMETRIC 8-shaped pattern of the Sun's yearly motions: between (roughly speaking) April and August, the observer will be displaced laterally by a factor of "1". Whereas between (roughly speaking) November and February, he will displaced laterally by a factor of "2.5".

Yet, Joe will always be "trusting his clock" (which of course ticks at a fixed / constant rate) - as he keeps snapping his pictures at NOON.

I know, this may at first appear somewhat counter-intuitive (and it's taken me years to wrap my head around it). Yet I'm now confident to be able to make this case in front of a "scientific court of law"...

The TYCHOS model, I dare say, is here to stay. -_-

Thank you Simon, putting this in a slightly different way is beneficial for me.

So I have a question. Did the analemma become known only with the advent of mechanised clocks? Or is there an analog way of working it out from time out of mind?

Dear Peaker, you may wish to read this interesting paper about the history of the analemma. Short excerpt:

"Around the year 2020 BC the gnomon was already used in Mesopotamia to determine day-time hours, while 60 minutes and even 60 seconds as standard time scales could be measured by sand or water clocks. At roughly the same time obelisks in Egypt served as community sundials."
https://www.researchgate.net/publicatio ... athematics

So yes, the analemma "phemomenon" has been known for quite a while. In fact, it really isn't a phenomenon at all; it's just that ALL time-measuring tools ever devised (from sand/ or water clocks to modern digital chronometers) tick at a constant / fixed rate. Yet, since the Sun revolves around our slowly-moving Earth (at times in the same direction / and at times in the opposite direction as Earth) - and, more importantly, since an earthly observer's annual frame of reference is a peculiar / constantly fluctuating trochoid (see my above graphic), the Sun will naturally keep drifting back and forth / and "out of sync" with any clock that's ever been devised.

A fun, future project (enabled by the TYCHOS) would be to build a clock that actually slows down and speeds up over the course of the year, calibrated to the shape of our trochoidal path and Earth's 1-mph motion (both of which cause our Sun to APPARENTLY accelerate and decelerate*) - and so eliminating the analemma! That is, the analemma would no longer be 8-shaped - but just a straight vertical line (as the Sun would consistently return to the same zenith point in our skies). But does humanity need such a clock? I doubt it. Besides, the 8-shaped analemma is quite beautiful, isn't it? I vote to keep it that way. :)

(* a third contributing factor being that the Sun is a bit closer to Earth in December and a bit further away in June)

MORE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE SIRIUS SYSTEM

Dear friends,

In my TYCHOS book (which was released two years ago, in March 2018), I pointed out a remarkable fact that no astronomer had pointed out before:

The relative diameters of the Sun and Mars are practically identical to the diameters of Sirius A and Sirius B.

That is, the diameters of the two "baby" bodies ( Mars and Sirius B ) are both just about 204X smaller than their "mother" bodies ( the Sun and Sirius A ).

But one question remained: do the ORBITAL SIZES of Sirius A and Sirius B resemble in any way the ORBITAL SIZES of our Sun and Mars?

So let's see: it is commonly-accepted that Mars can transit as as far as 400Mkm from Earth (apogee) - and as close as 56.6Mkm from Earth (perigee).
This means that we have a "furthest-to-closest" ratio of 7:1 ... Here's how it looks in my TYCHOS model:

Image


Today, I finally found a rare "official" diagram that depicts the actual relative SIZES of the orbits of both Sirius A and Sirius B :
(Note: most diagrams to be found - by NASA & co. - only depict the orbit of Sirius B around a "stationary" Sirius A).

Image https://www.pinterest.it/pin/1742330793 ... login=true

Now, before we get on, let me remind you of the French academic study by Benest and Duvent (1994) which concluded that there is most probably a THIRD body within the Sirius system (which "revolves around Sirius A"). They named this THIRD (yet still undected / invisible to our best telescopes) body "Sirius C".

"IS SIRIUS A TRIPLE STAR?" (by Benest & Duvent) : https://www.tychos.info/citation/017A_I ... e-Star.pdf

In my TYCHOS book, I had speculated that this elusive THIRD body ("Sirius C") might be some sort of "twin sister" of planet Earth.

Well, let us now postulate that "Sirius C" truly exists. Here's how it would "interact" with Sirius B... at a ratio of 7:1

Image

I know, some folks might argue that the above-illustrated 7:1 ratio isn't quite exact - since we see (from Earth) the Sirius system at an angle.

Still, isn't this quite remarkable? And doesn't it warrant further study? Are there any professional astronomers out there who may consider helping out?

I don't know about you, but in my humble opinion, the idea that the Sirius system might be some sort of "TWIN SISTER" of our own solar system is quite fascinating.

Exellent find Dear Simon. Yet another confirmation of the Tychos model.

My thought as well. Come on in! The water is warm and there's plenty of room. It's almost as if you have created a new field of astronomy. Perhaps we should dub it geoastronomy? Since this is about figuring out the proportions of, and motions in our universe that makes geometrical sense. Current astronomy seems to be mostly about shoehorning everything into a Heliocentric model and Newtonian "physics". None of which makes much sense.
