Shadow Object Revisited
« on: October 01, 2007, 09:57:58 PM »
I formulated a (possible?) reason to explain why the shadow object is difficult to observe.  As we know well enough, mass bends light.  By this knowledge, we should be able to observe stars since there projected light bends around the object, much like the stars observed during the 1919 Eddington experiment.

Sorry. That's not going to work. You have too little mass to bend enough and no shape that will solve the problem for all observers.

Perhaps its mass resembles a neutron star and its shape expands and contrasts due to varying distance between the moon or some oscillating temporal anomaly?

And if your grandmother had ....s, she'd be your grandfather. (All good science-fiction terms seem to come in three words these days: oscillating temporal anomaly, tachyon transmitter array, collinear warp conduits, Tom Bishop's [Rules Violation], ...)

How come we never see stuff like this with the "Shadow Object"?







Why does the lit side of the moon always face toward the sun?

Careful.  It doesn't.  It always faces towards the sun.

Look at the moon at 5:00 AM sometime late in the lunar month (any day this week) and you will see the lit side of the moon facing almost due east towards the rising sun.

Well, I only looked at it during the afternoon.  Sorry.

I believe Tom claims there are several documented anomolies where stars "disappear" or flicker.  I haven't verified that so, take it as it is.
