Title: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: Cosmic Quest on August 31, 2013, 08:26:36 PM
Somebody claiming to be from near Wichita, Kansas posted this picture at the poleshift.ning of sunrise earlier this month, with what could the sun's dwarf star companion.  Its position appears to be opposite that recorded in South America by Jorge Urena and discussed in Marshall's video "Planet X System Observations and Orbital Analysis."  I wonder if that is because this photograph was taken in the Northern Hemisphere.  Perhaps someone more familiar with astronomy than myself can comment on that.

We finally had a clear day here near Dallas, so I made the extra effort and got up before dawn to see for myself.  Here is what I was able to record just after the 7:01 a.m. sunrise.

(http://i1297.photobucket.com/albums/ag26/AlphaLex9/DSC00290_zpsca1a9d59.jpg)

No dwarf star to be seen, but the sun's declination (angular distance of a point north or south of the celestial equator) is not where it should be.  I went back to the same spot today with a hand-held protractor and was able to approximate the angle at about 20 degrees, as measured from due East.

According to the Sun Simulator (http://"http://astro.unl.edu/naap/motion3/animations/sunmotions.html") at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, the declination is supposed to be 8.8 degrees.   I took a screenshot of what the sun's path should be at my latitude on August 30th.

(http://i1297.photobucket.com/albums/ag26/AlphaLex9/Sunpath2_zps7206f3d4.jpg)

I believe that the blue line above the stick figure is the celestial equator, and the yellow one is the sun's transit across the sky.  As it shows, the sun should be much closer to the celestial equator.   So, unless I am mistaken, this proves what I and others around the world have been observing, (including my brother, a confirmed skeptic) that the sun is rising farther north than in years past.

I am gratified and thank God that I was finally able to get this confirmation that the earth has shifted on its axis, and there was an added unexpected little bonus.  Viewing the red sun comfortably through the atmosphere with binoculars at dawn, I could clearly see two sunspots, tiny to my eye but probably at least the size of the earth.   That was a happy first for me.  :)

Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift

Are you referring to the daily wobble of the axis of rotation, the pending sudden rotation and crust shift as PX passes by, or the slow but accelerating migration of the magnetic North Pole?

Probably wobble.  Since starting this thread I have learned the difference between true and magnetic north, and that solar declination is measured relative to true north.  The technical term for the difference is magnetic declination.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetic_declination

That said, I need to adjust my readings above by about three degrees further east, per my location relative to true north.

I have also learned how to get a precise reading of solar azimuth by using a lensatic compass.  This measurement is an alternative means to determine the sun's rising and setting locations relative to the horizon.

(http://capsis.cirad.fr/capsis/_media/help_en/azelzen.gif)

(http://www.brassbinnacle.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000003/STL-109-lg.jpg)

Subsequent readings I took at the middle of November showed the sun to be setting only two or three degrees off from where it should be.  Then when I checked on December 2nd, it had increased to about 10 degrees again.  This tells me the wobble may have a period of one or two weeks.  I also noticed that at the beginning of December, Texas was experiencing unseasonable warmth.  Now it is in a hard freeze, temperatures having dropped precipitously in the space of two days.  I suspect that the earth is wobbling laterally on its axis rather than back and forth, putting any location north or south of the poles alternately at higher or lower latitudes.  That could explain why weather anomalies are becoming so extreme.

Good work, Cosmic Quest.  We need more data like that from personal observations.
Now, a couple technical points:

Quote
I suspect that the earth is wobbling laterally on its axis rather than back and forth
I don't understand that distinction; could you explain?

Quote
when I checked on December 2nd, it had increased to about 10 degrees again.  This tells me the wobble may have a period of one or two weeks.
Were all measurements made at the same time of day, or all at sunrise?  The time of normal sunrise changes slightly day by day, of course, AND the actual time of sunrise if affected by the wobble.  Could you record the predicted and actual azimuths, and predicted and actual times, of sunrise for several consecutive days?  Also for sunsets?  Also for even more times daily???

That is asking for toooo much, I am sure; but the more real experimental data the better.

When I say "front to back," I mean as if viewing the earth from space directly at its axis corresponding with the prime meridian, or zero degrees longitude.

(http://www.learner.org/jnorth/images/graphics/mclass/Long.gif)

Laterally would refer to viewing the earth from space directly at 90 or 270 degrees.

(http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/files/2010/06/axial-tilt.jpg)

When I took readings of solar azimuth, the sun appeared displaced by an equal distance west at sunset as it was displaced to the east at sunrise.  Logic tells me that if the earth were rocking front to back on the prime meridian, the sun would appear displaced to the east at both sunrise and sunset.   That is, it would rise 12 degrees too far east and also set 12 degrees too far east.  Since the sun sets too far west, that seems to indicate that the wobble is more like east to west than north to south.

I know my explanation is crude due to my limited knowledge of the scientific principles and mathematics involved, but I hope the idea is made more clear.

I only took declination readings at sunrise twice since starting this thread but have taken quite a few azimuth readings from outside my front door. all taken about five to ten minutes before sunset.

Since the Sun sets in the west, generally, does "too far west" mean "too large azimuth"?  And does "too far east" at sunrise mean "too small azimuth"?

Quote

90 or 270 degrees to what?  The ecliptic plane?  90 degrees to the ecliptic would put the observer "above" (northward) of the arctic circle looking "down" or "below" (southward) of the antarctic circle looking "up".  Then, does the observer stay fixed in space while the Earth rotates below/above him, or does he also go around in a circle at some fixed longitude?

Quote

OK, that would make the observer go around with the Earth as it rotates.  Now, at what latitude?  The equator, perhaps (zero degrees)?  Or on the arctic circle or the antarctic circle, perhaps  (66.56 degrees north or south)?

My apologies for just now getting back to this thread.  It's been a busy week.  I actually made a misstatement and meant declination or azimuth too far north of due east and too far south of due west.   I must have been fatigued after work or distracted when I posted.  Sorry about that.

Quote
90 or 270 degrees to what?  The ecliptic plane?

Relative to 0 or 360 degrees true north, I suppose.

I meant as viewed at prime meridian on the same plane as the celestial equator.  Again, I am no astronomer and can only describe what I visualize from a layman's standpoint, so it is difficult to be precise.

I did an observation of solar azimuth this afternoon, 12-16-13 at 17:00, a few minutes before sunset, and after adjusting my reading to true north, it showed the sun setting too far south of due west by about ten degrees.   At the same time, the weather here in North Texas has gone from arctic cold to spring-like conditions in the space of a week and a half.  I believe this tends to support my hypothesis that the earth is wobbling laterally about every two weeks (as if from) east and west on its axis, shifting surface locations alternately too far north or too far south of the celestial equator and causing abrupt weather extremes globally.

Here http://axischange.wordpress.com/ is a blog site with a link at mid-page to abundant evidence that the earth has shifted on its axis.  This particular investigator started posting data several years ago and believes the shift has occurred because global warming and melting polar have altered the rotational balance of the planet.  Regardless of that conclusion, the site provides a lot of supporting information to help prove that an axial shift has indeed occurred.

Cosmic Quest and also Jim Farmer thank you for your work compiling data on this.

Thanks for the comment, Yowbarb.  My hope is that readers of this thread will obtain a lensatic compass and make their own observations.  I picked a decent one up at Walmart for about $9.  Here is a link to determine the magnetic declination for any location.

http://magnetic-declination.com/

After finding that value, it is simply added to a compass reading if positive or subtracted if negative, to obtain a determination of the solar azimuth or solar declination from true north.  When the correct solar azimuth or solar declination is obtained for one's location, it can then be compared with what the output from the solar simulation calculator (linked above) shows that it should be.

Here is a link to the University of Wisconsin SSEC Geostationary Satellite website.  Their current eight-hour animation seems to show the axial wobble.  Amazing if so.  Thanks to poleshift.ning.com for the link.

UPDATE:

I recently called the University of Nebraska at Lincoln Astronomy Department and spoke to a professor there.  He told me that their online solar motion simulator that I was using is a learning tool and only approximate in its calculations of solar declination and azimuth.

So, I am now using Solar Topo instead to calculate what the solar azimuth at my address and exact location should be at any hour of any day, with correction for Daylight Savings Time.  (Note: The date field uses the British convention of putting the day before the month and defaults to Britain's time zone.  It might show the next day if read from the U.S.  If so, simply change back to one day earlier.)

http://www.solartopo.com/solar-orbit.htm

For the first few weeks of spring, the wobble was less pronounced, but as the summer solstice approaches, it is again becoming severe.  Today I measured the solar azimuth at 8:30 a.m. and it was exactly where the Solar Topo placed its correct position.  At just before dusk I checked it again, and the sun was 15-20 degrees further south from where it should have been!  I implore readers to please buy a cheap lensatic compass and corroborate my observations.

I also contacted the Hong Kong Observatory and the University of Wisconsin via email regarding the apparent earth wobble in the FY2D animation, to which I posted a link above.  The observatory spokesman wrote back that as far as he knows, the satellite is functioning properly.  The university spokesman in essence said that the satellite is probably more inclined in its orbit because it is nearing the end of its operational life.  I'm not convinced.

Thanks for posting this, Cosmic Quest, and thank you, Jim, for zeroing in on the details.

Cosmic Quest, I'm with you on this, as I have been gathering data since 2011, and it supports your hypothesis.  One main difference is the changes or alterations in the earth's axis of rotation is something I discovered by ACCIDENT. 

I was only looking to mark out a north-south line on the ground for a tiny experimental solar panel system, after pondering this for a couple of years.  When December, 2011 arrived, I knew it was time, but when winter solstice came, it was cloudy, so I marked the north-south line on the next day--day after solstice.  I am kind of a purist, so I figured if necessary, I can just nudge the poles/sticks #2 and #3 a few millimeters next year, when the winter solstice of 2012 rolls around, and we'll have our true north-south line, marked on exactly 12-21-12, winter solstice.   (To aim the panels at true south (in northern hemisphere) you have to know the north-south line, and a compass is OK, but the issue of magnetic declination, which can vary, and even heavy iron deposits nearby, will make you want to find true north.)

To find the north-south line, it is best done on winter solstice, and one primitive, but fairly accurate way is to line up three poles or straight sticks in the ground so that at exactly high noon, the sun's shadow of the first stick falls on the second stick, and the shadow of stick/pole #2 falls on pole or stick #3 and pole/stick #3's shadow continues in a straight line.  In the northern hemisphere, the sun will be "south" and the shadow going through the three poles/sticks is pointing "north".  The best thing is have pole or stick #1 in place before noon because the 60 second window rolls around faster than you think it will, and you are trying to drive poles or sticks in the ground and have them straight, level, and exactly in one shadow, all during your allotted 60 seconds.  Plus your ground should be level, as shadows can play tricks on uneven or rocky ground.

I should mention one other item about December, 2011.  A couple of days before solstice, I noticed it was "broad daylight" outside at 5 PM.  It was so light, I ran outside to see what was going on!  I've known all my adult life that at our latitude, by 5 PM, or actually 4:45 PM it is totally dark on winter solstice, and for some days before and after that day.  But this day was so light I could not believe my eyes.  I continued to watch, day after day, and the earliest it got dark in the vicinity of 2011 solstice was approximately 5:30 PM.  So something was "off" by 45 minutes.

Fast forward.  As December 2012 solstice approached I synchronized my watch online with time.is, went to the site of my 2011 north-south line, and made sure all was ready for the minor adjustment that might be needed.  I figured it is only going to be a few millimeters, so should be a piece of cake to nudge pole/stick #2 and pole/stick #3, to get the north-south line on exactly winter solstice, 2012.

On December 21, 2012, I arrived at the future site of solar panels, and I cannot emphasize enough my shock at what I saw.  It was only a few minutes before 12 noon, and the sun was in an entirely different direction!   I sort of stared in disbelief, and had to run find some new sticks because I would be unable to pull the old ones out and re-seat them in such a short time.  I found new sticks and drove them into the ground for this new north-south line of winter solstice, 12-21-2012.

Few people have believed me, and to be honest, if someone told me this story, and I had not noticed the 5 PM daylight of 2011, I might be a bit disinclined to believe such a "far-fetched" story as well.  After the truth set in, I got a carpenter's square and placed it gingerly between the 2011 and 2012 solstice north-south lines.  The difference was approximately 45 degrees.  I know, I know, it sounds preposterous.  But remember this is not an exact north-south deviation, nor is it an exact east-west deviation.  It must be some combination thereof. 

Now, it is obvious I have not used a computer-interfaced laser pointer, so the degree of accuracy I have would be subject to discussion.  Also, worth mention is that I finally replaced the "sticks in the ground" with a concrete-reinforced steel pole (for solar mount) and this steel pole is embedded deeply in a massive concrete and stone base.  Now, there can be no hint of "frost heave" which could skew results.  This steel pole is truly level in all directions, and it is from this new pole that I continue to plot out the ever-changing north-south lines.


Now that I have given a preface, I will gather up the other data I've collected from December 2011, through January, 2015, and post it here on this thread, "Evidence of Earth Axis Shift".  Because of all the deviations I have seen in the north-south line, I can say with certainty that the earth's axis of rotation is changing.  Stay tuned.

Another thing I meant to mention relevant to my 1-21-15 post relates to my method of determining the north-south line.

Years ago we had read in some book about how to use the three sticks in the ground at exactly noon on winter solstice, in order to mark the north-south line.  Someone had asked if there is a link to that information.  I did not find an exact link, nor have I found the book we read, but after searching and thinking a bit I realized something:  the stick(s) or pole(s) are basically a SUNDIAL. 

So I searched "sundial" and got a few links that are of interest.  And the reason the vertical, level, stick(s)/pole(s) in the ground will only work at exactly noon is seen in one of the videos on youtube where the narrator shows that the stick or pole must be oriented parallel to the earth's axis for the sundial to accurately depict the time at all the hours, and not just noon.  But if the pole is totally vertical, one can still use the sundial at noon.

Hi ilinda!  Thanks for the detailed description of your low-tech method for marking solar angle.  So simple, a caveman could do it!  :) 

It took over a year for someone to answer my request in this thread by posting any kind of corroboration to my findings.  Too few people are aware or care about what is going on around, above or below them!  That's why the evil power elite have never faced a serious challenge to their nefarious crimes against humanity, such as censoring and murdering scientists who "commit the truth!" 

I look forward to more of your findings, ilinda.  BTW to Admin, is there any way to correct the sizing of this page?  I don't know what caused it to get so wide, but I had to scroll back and forth horizontally to read the latest posts.

Post by: ilinda on February 03, 2015, 04:19:44 PM
This is an update of the saga which began in December, 2011, in which I was attempting to mark our north-south line here in Missouri's Ozarks, in preparation for installing a small, experimental solar electric system of two small panels on a pole.

To get the entire story it helps to read my chronology posted previously, so I can fast-forward to the next paragraph.

Because I have so many north-south lines now, I decided to put them on paper for ease of comparing one to another.    It should be noted that I posted photos of most/all of them in their natural setting as of last year, however because of the outdoor lighting, glare on rocks, uneven shadows, mixed vegetation and the like, it is not easy to discern what you are looking at in the photos, but links to those photos will follow.

As I mentioned before, I began to have so many "sticks in the ground" that my site was starting to look like a military cemetery, and once the steel pole was in place and I had gotten June, 2014 summer solstice north-south line on both the new steel pole and the old "sticks in the ground", I then was able to remove the sticks, which had to be removed anyway in order to complete the solar mount pole's concrete pad.

Back when I marked the first north-south line in December, 2011, I followed that line by stretching a string to the building nearby, ending at a point about 27" from the far corner of building.    Thus nearly three years later, once the steel pole was concreted in place, I was able to mark off the December, 2011 line from the new steel pole by doing this:  measured the distance from the center of the steel pole to the center of the southernmost stick for December, 2011, a length of 31 1/4 inches.  Next, I stretched a string from the center of steel pole toward the first unmovable object, a large cedar tree, and making certain the string would attach to that tree at a distance of 31 1/4 inches from the other string--the one that marked the Dec., 2011 north-south line from the "sticks in the ground" to that point on the building at about 27 inches from the far corner of building.  Whew.  In other words, I needed two parallel strings.

Today I had begun to draw in all the north-south lines, beginning in December, 2011, through this week in 2015.  But I realized there would be so many lines that it would probably confuse everyone, including myself, so I did some erasing and am posting only the north-south lines I marked during the December, 2011 through June, 2014.  These pics will be posted as is, then I can begin drawing in the newer lines, and still have these older pics for comparison.

One possible source of minor error, aside from fact that I don't have a high-tech computer-interfaced laser pointer for accuracy, is fact that while my NOON readings are taken when the clock reads 12 o'clock, there are 60 seconds that comprise this minute and when you begin watching the sun's shadow at high noon, you can see it does move a small, but noticeable distance in 60 seconds.  Having said that, I promise to try to get future readings at EXACTLY 12 noon and 1 or 2 or 3 seconds, but no later.  If possible. 

The next installation will show our north-south lines as they emanate from the stable, concrete-reinforced steel pole, showing lines from June, 2014 through sometime in February, 2015, but that will not be "complete" and will only constitute an update.  The reason is that as long as the north-south line keeps moving, that means, IMO, that the tilt of the earth's axis of rotation is changing.

The installation after that one will be photos of the actual marks on the building or tree where these lines connect.   Also I plan to attach a number of different strings to the pole, stretching them out to their specific positions, each one representing a different dated north-south line. 

The pics are of my drawings on a piece of 18" X 24" cardstock, but fitting that into one shot isn't easy, thus the overall shot, and the close-up of the original first three sticks in the ground for December, 2011. 

The very long dashed lines mark December, 2011 line, and if you look closely you can read that at a point very close to the building.  (If I labeled the line near the bottom of the drawing, it would interfere with the lines denoting other north-south lines--lines that are yet to be drawn in place.)

You are right on that most people aren't aware.  Of all the people I've tried to interest in this stuff, most say nothing, or claim "you made a mistake", or "you're ignorant", or fill in the blank.  At one site, the person scoured the internet to find something that corroborated his preconceived notions of "how things are" and then proceded to expound on something on the internet that proves "nothing has changed".  So be it.

And don't get me started on the elite, or TPTW as I prefer to call them.  It removes some of their power to call them TPTW, rather than TPTB.  :-D)

Hi ilinda!  Thanks for the detailed description of your low-tech method for marking solar angle.  So simple, a caveman could do it!  :) 

It took over a year for someone to answer my request in this thread by posting any kind of corroboration to my findings.  Too few people are aware or care about what is going on around, above or below them!  That's why the evil power elite have never faced a serious challenge to their nefarious crimes against humanity, such as censoring and murdering scientists who "commit the truth!"

iLinda et al,

Please help me and others like me to grasp the essence of this thread. I'm getting, I think, that the 'normal' wobble of the planet and/or it's 'normal'  tilt off of a north-south line through the ecliptic plane is no longer normal; I think I'm getting that it/they may have become rather extreme but extreme is not defined by me. I'm just getting vague notions due to my own limitations so if you could help, it would be much appreciated.

Marshall's videos spoke of two things, one being the Nibiru system and the other being a galactic superwave with accompanying gravitational wave. I read/downloaded a paper on the latter impling something close if not here but it is a very wide 'cloud' which lasts a while; regarding the former, there's not been much lately so I'm at a loss when trying to develop the 'why' to the abnormal planet aspect(s).

Thanks,
GU

I'll be glad to help.  Most importantly, I discovered this "wobble" totally by accident, as is documented in the above posts, particularly my January 21, 2015 post.

OK, here goes.  Because my earlier data was based on "sticks in the ground", which were carefully placed and monitored, but were subject to frost-heave, many people would reject that data.  I don't.  Now, though, I have the concrete-reinforced steel post embedded in a massive base of stone and concrete, and that post is leveled perfectly, so it should remain as is, barring massive quaking.

If we only look at the data gathered since the steel post was installed, we still have a LOT of data showing the north-south line is changing.  What that means is that the earth's axis of rotation is changing.  Here's where it can get more detailed.  Changing how?  Is the Earth leaning in one direction, then another such as east or west?  Is the earth (also) tilting more north, or south, than before?  This is what my data will help determine.

And BTW, I have much more data I have not posted yet, as I'm watching the sun on a daily basis (when there's noonday sun) and marking where that north south line intersects on immovable objects.  The reason I haven't posted some new stuff yet is that the north-south line is coming very close to where it was last summer.  In other words, picture the north-south line last June, 2014, as being drawn on a clock face at high noon on that clock.  Now, picture the long hand of the clock represents that north-south line, and watch that hand move on toward 1 or 2 or even 3 o'clock position, and then watch that hand move back toward noon.  THAT is exactly what I've seen between June, 2014 and now, with the north-south line, if we plotted it on a clock face on paper.

One new piece of data I began gathering last June, with the new steel post, was also measuring the length of the sun's shadow.  That should tell us if the earth is tilting more, or less, north or south.  For example, from memory, I can say that the sun's shadow from the base of the steel pole was 125 1/2" long, around winter solstice, 2014.  And also, from memory, the sun's shadow for summer solstice, June 21, 2014 was only 16" or 16 3/4" long.  BUT, I'm only quoting from memory here because my data is all far away from the computer and is stored near the steel post, and this data is what I will be posting later, but not from memory.  Rather I will be posting exactly what data I have gathered.

So, for example, if the length of the sun's shadow from base of steel post to the tip of steel post, on June 21, 2015 is 14", then it means in my view that the earth's axis of rotation has tilted more northward.  Think of it like this:  the earth has a tilt of it's axis of rotation and if that tilt disappeared, then the axis of rotation would be exactly vertical, truly up and down.  And taking it a step further, if I find on June 21, 2015 that there is no shadow or perhaps a 2" shadow, we would know that the axis of rotation IS nearly vertical.  So my getting the lengths of the shadow of the steel post at noon will tell us about how "steep" or "not steep" the axis of rotation is.

And just the fact that the north-south line keeps moving around, pointing here, pointing there, (even if the length of the sun's shadow at noon on the steel post remains the same) that there is an east-west wobble.  Problem is, I only started this in 2011 and have no "normal" baseline. 

If I have not explained something, anything, everything clearly, please yell.  I get so mired into this stuff that I sometimes forget to mention something really important. 

Last but not least, I learned a lot from reading in my EXPLORATION OF THE UNIVERSE, whose author, George Ogden Abell, is listed in my Oxford Astronomy Encyclopedia.  In his EXPLORATION... book, he clearly states that the sun and moon both are tugging at the earth, in a tug-of-war of sorts.  I can quote him directly when I dig out the book.  Anyway, he shows how the earth's axis of rotation and movements are the result of the interactions, pushes, pulls, between and among the other bodies nearby, primarily the sun and moon.  I cannot PROVE WHY the earth's axis of rotation is now changing-- here and there, but from reading that book, I see it has to be from one or both: mass and/or magnetics. 

For example the mass of the sun and mass of the moon are constant, as is the mass of the earth.  But what if some rather massive body or massive bodies came careening into the solar system, as they approach the earth, they would definitely affect it, even if they never hit it.   There would be an attraction between those bodies that is described by a very short equation commonly known to astronomers and physicists (the same equation that applies to earth/sun/moon).   But complicating the picture is the magnetics.  What if that body or bodies newly entering the solar system have strong magnetic field(s)?  Then it could be attraction or deflection, depending on the orientation of those new bodies passing through.  And then if those new bodies entering our solar system have large mass, plus strong magnetic fields, we would know that all of the forces whether gravitational or magnetic, will both be at work, possibly wreaking havoc on our earth.

This is where gathering as much data as possible now will be helpful in seeing trends.  One thing in the short term I'm looking for is this:  will the north-south line ever move counter-clockwise PAST the December 2011 line?  This will be much more clear to readers as soon as I can get the next several posts made, as they will make it more clear.  (A picture tells a thousand words).

Stay tuned for more data, plus, again, if I have left out something or not been clear about anything, please let me know.

Post by: ilinda on February 26, 2015, 05:09:27 PM
This is an addendum to my above post, as I corrected a couple of things such as book title, etc., so the following can stand alone.

George Abell's  book EXPLORATION OF THE UNIVERSE has educated me a bit since being accidentally drawn into this science project of observing the sun's shadow at exactly high noon, first at solstice, and now, as often as possible, in order to determine the degree and orientation of the Earth's axis of rotation, which appears to be changing.

For the record, George Ogden Abell (1927-1983) wasn't just some guy who liked to watch the night sky, so he wrote a book on astronomy.  His listing in the OXFORD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ASTRONOMY mentions, among other things, that he studied galaxies and clusters of galaxies, and is best known for the Catalog of 2,712 "Rich" Clusters of Galaxies (1958), drawn largely from his work on the "Palomar Observatory Sky Survey".   Abell, of University of California, Los Angelos (UCLA) also had other work to his credit.

Relevant to our discussion of forces on the earth is what George Abell said on page 78 of his EXPLORATION OF THE UNIVERSE:
"The gravitational attractions of the sun and moon upon the earth act in such a way as to attempt to change the earth's axis of rotation (Abell's emphasis) so that it would stand perpendicular to the orbital plane of the earth.    To understand what actually takes place, we must digress for a moment to consider what happens when a similar force acts upon a top or gyroscope...."

Also relevant is that little equation that describes the force of gravitational attraction between two bodies, for example, sun and earth, or moon and earth, etc.  That equation, stated, says that the force of attraction between the two bodies is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.  So for example, two bodies that are relatively near each other (short distance apart) will have a strong attractive force for each other, while two bodies of same size, but much farther apart (long distance apart) will have a smaller attraction for each other.

My reason for including some about Abell and his work is to show I'm relying on those who know more about this than I, to help us understand what is going on, and maybe even note the "progress" of changes we are seeing.

This is another in the series of updates on the changing north-south line of Sol's shadow at high noon, as I have been recording since December, 2011. 

This article will include two pictures of my large card-stock drawing showing  the increasing number of different north-south lines, as the Earth's angle of axis of rotation continues to change.   Very soon I plan to post pictures of the actual on-site markings on the immovable objects so as to give the reader a better feeling of the "scale" of it all.

In a nutshell, for the dates of this article, June 21, 2014 through March 16, 2015, the north-south line (Sol's shadow on pole) pivots clockwise from June 21, 2014 through September 23, 2014, then begins to pivot counterclockwise from September 23, 2014 through February 19, 2015, then "waffles" between Feb. 19 and March 6, then again begins to pivot clockwise through the last day of this article, March 16, 2015.  The details are below:

For starters, I have only added eight "north-south" lines to the card-stock drawing (again, a picture is worth a thousand words), and these eight new lines encompass dates from June 21,2014 through March 11, 2015.  The marker for March 15 and 16 is there (27) but no room to write the dates or draw the line.  It should be noted that I have many more dates of observation during that time period,  but until I can create a larger close-up version, there is just not enough space for all the drawn lines that would be necessary to show all of the additional north-south lines.  Included in this article somewhere is a neat list of each date of observation, and at which "immovable monument marker" the north-south line intersects.

The card-stock drawing and that list  provide essentially the same information, but the visual effect of seeing the lines on paper gives the reader an immediate "feel" for how our Earth's axis of rotation is moving back and forth.

Note that I  began numbering the observations with the new steel post in place (picture to follow eventually) , with "1", "2", etc. and had reached "28", at which point the  north-south lines nearly converged with the first two:  "1" and "2".  The north-south lines for Feb. 19 through March 5 came thisclose to overlying the line for August 12.

To start, I marked  the June 21, 2014  position  on the concrete corner base as "1", and  August 12, 2014, on the same base, but slightly closer to the actual corner itself, as "2",  then got the readings for September 23, 2014, December 17, 2014, December 25, 2014,  and January 5, 2015, labeled  "3", "4", "8", and "15", respectively.    It is important to note that it was so cloudy in December it was impossible to get much data at all, including on winter solstice.  So, we can conclude that the winter solstice north-south line is somewhere in between lines "4" (December 17) and "8" (December 25).  Also marked on our card-stock display are lines for January 30, 2015, and finally  the time period from February 12 through March 11, 2015, (mostly Marker # "28"), during which time the line was not appearing to move much at all, presumably because it was in the process of changing directions, i.e., the Earth's axis of rotation was in the process of changing directions. 

It was during that 28-day period that I began to get "impatient", wanting the line to move one way or another!  Stepping back, I see the hilarity of the situation and need to remember I'm only here to COLLECT data, not cheer for one direction or another! But from these observations, I can see that nothing is predictable in regard to this changing north-south line.  Which brings us to this the next step.

After a few days of constant rain that was finally melting all the snow and ice, sun on March 15 and 16 allowed more observations.  The north-south line is no longer "waffling between position 2 and position 28, but has finally begun moving again.  Now, our north-south line has reversed its counterclockwise direction, and is now moving clockwise again, with March 15 and 16, 2015,  at position 27.    It is worth repeating  that I did not mark ALL of my observations on the card-stock display,  as there would have been too many lines which would have created a confusing and cluttered display.

It is also important to note, I am not 100% certain what happened between August 12, 2014 and September 23, 2014, nor between September 23, 2014 and December 17, 2014, but can conclude there was net clockwise movement between August and September; also assumed is net counterclockwise movement  from September 23, 2014 through February 12, 2015.

These are the dates shown on card-stock display:

March 16, 2015   27

There is more to follow, including outdoor pics of all the landmarks associated with these data.    There is also a smaller database of measurements (but still growing)  of the length of shadow that is cast by the solar mount pole as Sol hits the pole at high noon.  This shadow length is used in a small amount of algebra and trigonometry, all of which is used to calculate the sun's angle.  Details and data to follow. 

It is worth remembering that "noon" always means Standard time.  I use central standard time, CST, and have dedicated a certain watch to this project, so it goes nowhere else, and is never reset every spring for "Daylight" time, and always remains set for CST.

There is one minor error I see and that is in the cardstock display which labels the one line at the exact concrete corner, #28, as being for all the dates between and including February 12, through March 11, which would be true, except for the dates from Feb. 19 through Mar. 6, during the "waffling".

If anyone spots any errors, please inform me ASAP, so that I can correct them and not misinform anyone.  Further, I urge anyone to set up their own post or pole, level it, level the ground around it, and get busy documenting "stuff".  Make certain your watch or clock is checked regularly for accuracy to the second.  Good luck, and stay tuned for updates….

Ilinda:  Would "true solar noon" be better?  That is when the Sun is directly overhead.  Varies with location and date.   See http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/grad/solcalc/

Jim, that's a good idea.  Fortunately, we are smack dab in the center of our time zone, Central Time, so true solar noon is probably what I'm using, but only by accident!

 I do recall someone mentioning he used Polaris, our North Star, when lining up his solar panel system, because it would be more accurate for those not in the center of their time zone.

Anyway, you raised a good point because those at one side of a given time zone will have slightly different readings from someone at the other side of the same time zone.  In fact, people living just a few feet from each other can be in different time zones.  Think of how someone in the far west of Central Zone can be a few feet from someone living in the far eastern part of Mountain Time Zone.

Thanks again, and I'll go back and study the site a bit more, and maybe learn a bit more as well.

It is worth remembering that "noon" always means Standard time.  I use central standard time, CST,

Ilinda:  Would "true solar noon" be better?  That is when the Sun is directly overhead.  Varies with location and date.   See http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/grad/solcalc/
Here's a stray thought that is relevant to those without access to internet, or those without access to much of anything technical, including someone out in the wild.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but one very low-tech way to determine when Sol, our Sun, is directly overhead is to measure repeatedly the sun's shadow on a completely level and straight pole or post in level ground.  Once the person has ascertained the approximate time period of "true solar noon", when the Sun is approximately overhead, then s/he can begin measuring the shadow minute by minute, and then narrowing it down further, second by second, to eventually determine when Sol is directly overhead.  This would take several days, unless one already knows within about 5 or 10 minutes when "true solar noon" is.

In that way, a series of shadow measurements will tell the person that the shortest measurement means "true solar noon" or as I called it "high noon".  It works everywhere, except where the sun is directly overhead and casts no shadow.

That series of shadow measurements, if plotted on a graph, should display something similar to an inverse Bell Curve.  Someone please correct this if wrong.

A vertical pole on a level surface might be easier to work with, especially if you could mark the position of the tip of the shadow on that surface.  Anyway, if you are marking the length of the shadow on a stick as the shadow moves, the surface that that stick rests on and moves around on must be level.

As the Sun just peeks over the eastern horizon in the morning, all shadows are very long towards the west.  The shadow shortens until true noon, at which time it begins to lengthen towards the east, until it is very long again when the sun sets in the west below the horizon.

Shape of the curve of shadow length: parabola concave up. Well, not exactly a parabola, since the shadow is infinitely long at sunrise and sunset if the Sun's elevation is zero and 180 at those times, respectively.

Yes, your parabolic curve is closer to it than the inverted Bell curve, as the "ends" do not flatten out as they do in a Bell curve.

I did try measuring the shadow repeatedly around noon, but two problems arose.  One is that a solid white or other light color sheet or tarp is needed to place on the ground where the shadow will fall, as the vegetation, ground, and all the variety found where the shadow falls makes this venture very difficult.  It is hard enough to mark one shadow, but repeatedly marking it, means backing up, going forward, looking askance, etc.

The second problem is that the length of shadow changes less, by the second, that the direction of shadow, or at least it seems that way. 

In fact, this entire project of measuring Sol's shadow at true solar noon has made me realize the importance of having the shadow fall onto a white sheet or tarp or other light-colored material.

So thanks, Jim.

Finally April 17, 2015 here in Missouri, USA, was a sunny day for observing and measuring the sun's shadow.

For now, the north-south line is still slowly, but surely, continuing to move clockwise, if you can imagine it as the hand of a clock. 
The pics of the cardstock show one new date, 4-17-15 added, and notice that it appears at "mark #15", along with January 5, 2-15.   A third pic shows a listing of some of the dates of my observations. 

As mentioned previously, I have many more observations, but there are way too many to include them all, as the lines representing the north-south line would fill and clutter the picture.  So what I do is watch and watch, waiting for a day when a north-south line has moved enough to make it worth the effort to document and photograph it.  What we are looking for here, folks, is the BIGGER PICTURE, i.e., the overall movement of this line which tells us a lot about the Earth's rotational axis orientation with respect to our sun, Sol.

Stay tuned for the eventual photos of the objects that are only represented as drawings/sketchings now, and stay tuned for more sun-shadow observations.

Going Counter-Clockwise Again!

On May 14, 2015, I gathered a bit more information about the Earth's axis of rotation, and  its wobble, or whatever we want to call it. 

Again, if we want to depict  this axis movement by drawing it on paper,  we draw a straight line on the face of  a picture of a clock,  Initially we can have the north part of the line pointing toward 12 o'clock, and the south, toward 6 o'clock.

Summarizing, and looking at point #8 on my card stock drawing,  we see that on April 29, 2015, the sun's shadow pointed toward #8 on the "concrete stone base", at which time the north-south line (sun's shadow) was moving clockwise, as the days passed.

As of May 3, 2015, the line was still pointing to #8, and by May 6, 2015, the line had moved clockwise a bit more and was pointing toward #4 on the right side of the cellar door.

May 12, 2015 showed the sun's noon shadow  pointing at the right edge of the cellar door where it meets the door jamb, so I gave it # 3.8 to indicate being between #3 and #4, but did not draw a line so as not to clutter the card stock.  By May 13, 2015 the shadow was pointing at #4, indicating a change in direction from clockwise, back to counter-clockwise.  Then on May 14, I noted the sun's shadow was pointing even further to the left, at a location approximately 1" to the left of #4.  I did not note this on the drawing or the card stock, since I eyeballed the measurement as approximately 1".

What this shows is that the sun's shadow showed clockwise movement at successive noon time readings from a period of "waffling" during the period February 12, through March 11, 2015, at #28, and then moving clockwise across the points on the corner stone base, including # 25, 15, and 8, and continuing clockwise to point # 4 on May 6, 2015.

Then we have no readings (due to either illness or cloudy days) from May 7 through May 12, 2015.  It is speculation, but from point #4 on May 6, the shadow could have moved further clockwise, passing up #3.8, then reversing, and returning to #4 by May 13. 

A second possibility is that on May 6, 2015, Sol's shadow pointed toward point #4, then "waffled" between #4 and #3.8 for a few days, as it was in the process of again reversing itself, to its new and current counterclockwise direction of movement.  I tend to think this is correct.

From my point of view, it is probably not that important which of the two possibilities is correct.  What IS important is that the sun's noon shadow is now gradually moving counterclockwise again.  One might ask why the Earth would seem to "waffle" when reversing directions.  My best guess is the Earth is so massive, that it is not like a tiny car being suddenly put into reverse.  The Earth is much more massive than a tiny car, and more importantly, the forces causing the car to go in reverse are all contained inside that car, whereas the forces causing the Earth to reverse directions are external.

One important thing I noticed the other day that needs to be said.  When I drew the little building and landmarks on the card stock, I neglected to accurately depict the "corner base" as jutting out a bit, perhaps a foot or so, in front of the concrete block base.  This means in this two-dimensional drawing the angle between one group of points (28 through 8 ) and the other points (3, 3.8, and 4) is considerably less than the drawing shows.  I certainly did not intend this, and there was no subterfuge involved.  Here's what I need to correct in the next card stock update:  show the corner stone base jutting out, and when that happens, the viewer will see how very close #8 is to #4.  They are actually very close!  My apologies to anyone who looked at this and scratched his/her head.

Note in the card stock I have added a few dates to #8 and #4, and also added a new point, 3.8.

ASAP, I plan to draw a more accurate card stock showing how very close #8 and #4 are, which will hopefully clarify this a bit for anyone who thought I was making a major error.
Updates to follow.

I need to clarify the question.   I'm not sure what you mean by the "angle of the shadow from true North"?

Two angles come to mind.  The angle between point #8 and point #4, which APPEARS in my two-dimensional drawing to be rather large, in reality is quite small, and I plan to correct this in an amended drawing.

 The other angle(s) is the one which I have not yet published, but plan to do so.  I have been measuring the length of Sol's noon shadow on the ground, where possible, and using that data, plan to publish the angle of the sun from the horizon for those given dates.

Sorry for the wordy reply, but still am not exactly sure of your question.

You have a rod standing vertically on a flat surface.  It casts a shadow.
From the base of the rod, draw a line on the flat surface going towards true North.
Measure the angle between that line and the shadow.

Ahhh, I see what you are asking.

I haven't done that, even from the start for two reasons: 
1) don't we get true north by first finding magnetic north, then consider declination?;  there is so much iron-bearing rock around here I'm not sure the reading for magnetic north would be accurate, thus I've never tried to find true north for this project; and
2) the site is totally surrounded on the north by trees and I cannot get a line to Polaris on ANY night.

If you are thinking my thoughts on iron-bearing rock are not as important as I thought, let me know and I can find true north, using the compass and declination.


Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: Jimfarmer on May 17, 2015, 09:02:14 PM
Using the Sun or a compass to determine true North are not reliable methods now that the Earth axis of rotation wobbles and the magnetic field is often perturbed.  Star sighting does not work either because of the wobble.

However, longitude values do not change as the axis moves, and most maps should show the direction of true north.

So, if you could mark your location on a professional map (from USGS, for example) and then find a landmark that is visible from your location and is truly north of your location, then you could draw a line on the flat base from the pole and pointing towards that landmark.  Or you could use some other convenient landmark, measure the angle between true north and the line from it to your location on the map, and then use that angle to draw the line to true north on the flat base of the pole.

But, if the purpose of the experiment is just to document frequent variation in the orientation of the axis of the Earth, then a listing of the angle of the shadow (at true noon or any other fixed time of day) and some arbitrary fixed line from the base of the pole, would be sufficient.

Another, more interesting version of the experiment would be to list the angle between actual true north and apparent north as determined by the shadow-tip method.  If you use the two-point shadow-tip method to determine north as indicated by the Sun, then measurements could be taken at any time of day (not just at true noon).  That data might reveal a diurnal pattern in the wobble.

Compass readings could be taken at any time of day or night, of course, but variations in the apparent declination at your location would be related to fluctuations in the magnetic field, which might or might not relate to the wobble of the axis.  Documenting that relationship, or lack of it, could be part of the project.

Thanks for the reminder (!) that now that we have a new Earth wobble, and magnetic field perturbations, that using Polaris, the Sun, or a compass to determine north is/are unreliable. 

After pondering what you've written I realize I cannot determine "true north", or longitudinal line/direction for the main reason that the site of observation is surrounded by dense forest (primarily cedar) on all sides, and has only been opened up in a small circle around the south, or at least where I thought south was.  We have plenty of USGS maps and in fact have our location noted on a number of them, but to be able to locate/identify a landmark that is north of the site, and somehow tie that "north site" to our site is impossible.

But you've given me an idea with your "But, if the purpose of the experiment is just to document frequent variation in the orientation of the axis of the Earth, then a listing of the angle of the shadow (at true noon or any other fixed time of day) and some arbitrary fixed line from the base of the pole, would be sufficient.".

I got into this "by accident", by virtue of noticing an extreme wobble between 2011 and 2012, while engaging in my first attempt at setting up an experimental solar array, and trying to determine a north-south line for proper orientation of the solar panels.   Upon seeing the disparity between 2011 "north" and 2012 "north",  I got drawn into this investigation out of curiosity if nothing else.

So, using your suggestion, I'm going to attach a string from the base of the pole to the point on a tree that indicates the December 2011 "north-south" line.  Two reasons for this:  1) at no time since December, 2011, has the north-south line pointed in that direction; and 2) the tree is an immovable object.  Once that December, 2011 line has been re-established, it will be an easy matter to measure the angle between that line and any other line, including new ones.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on May 23, 2015, 06:12:24 AM
In checking Sol's north-south line on May 22, 2015, I see it appears that the Earth axis is now "waffling" again.  The line aligned perfectly with #4 location (seen on the cardstock shown in Reply #33 above) so it can be seen that right now the Earth's axis is most likely in the process of changing direction again.  Most likely, but I won't say definitely until we see it.

But based on Jim's suggestion, I have resurrected the first north-south line I obtained, from December, 2011.  In the photos, it can be seen as the one to the most counterclockwise direction, or to the left, represented by the "string" that is tied higher on the pole.

It is also easy to see the other "string", as that represents the north-south line for May 22, 2015.  And even without doing any calculations, one can easily see that there is a marked difference between the two strings and the directions to which they point.

At present I'm pondering the most accurate way to determine the angle between yesterday's line and my original December, 2011 line.  It is not as easy as I initially anticipated, as the pivot point is the CENTER pf a steel post filled with concrete, and whose overall diameter is 2 3/8", thus the radius of that post, 1 3/16", must be taken into account.

Update to follow shortly.

Run a line parallel to one of the lines towards the other line until they cross.  Then measure the angle there.

Will do that. 

Tonight I obtained a printout of one of several on-site shots and plan to work from the printout, rather than try to manually create a parallel line, on site.
Details to follow.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on May 25, 2015, 02:37:57 PM
OK, decided to calculate the angle between our December, 2011 north-south line and our May 22, 2015 north-south line in three ways, each as a check against the others.
 
First, from Jim's suggestion:
1)  I drew a line parallel to Dec, 2011 line, exactly one inch away. 
2) Then used a protractor to make the "parallel-to-Dec., 2011" and May 22, 2015 lines intersect .
3) note that by positioning the pivot hole of our protractor over the intersection point of our May 22, 2015 line and our new line--(parallel to Dec. 2011), we see on our protractor we have an angle of 39 degrees between our two lines.
See Image #0093

Second method, which could have been done prior to the above one, involved using the protractor edge to continue our two lines "into" the interior of our pole, where the two lines do intersect. 
Next positioned protractor with pivot hole over the intersection point where the two lines meet "inside" the pole.  With protractor positioned as such, note that the angle between the lines shows on our protractor as 39 degrees.
See Images #91 and #92

Third method involves a bit of trigonometry.  See Images # 94 and #95.
1) place protractor edge exactly along May 22, 2015 line, for the purpose of making an exactly perpendicular line that will connect our May 22, 2015 line ("x") with our December, 2011 line, with the perpendicular line being drawn as "y".  (Positioned a ruler on top of protractor to accomplish this, using pivot hole and 90 degree marker.)
2) Measured length of "x" from intersection point inside pole to the new vertical line "y".  Next measured "y" .  X=3.8125"  and Y=3.125"
3) Trig tells us that "y" divided by "x" (Y/X)  (in a right triangle) represents the tangent of the desired angle, and Y/X= 3.125/3.8125 which = 0.816993464.
Thus our tangent is 0.816993464.
 Looking in the trig tables of any trigonometry book we find that the tan for 39 deg 14'  is 0.81655
  and the tan for 39 deg 15'  is 0.81703. 

Our 0.81699 is close enough to 0.81703 that we could say the angle between our December, 2011 line and our May 22, 2015 line is approximately 39 deg 15 min.

Note that the tape measure in the photo when reproduced, appears considerably smaller, although I do not have the exact scale.    If anyone sees any errors, glaring or otherwise, please let me know.  We want as much accuracy as possible, even though we're working mostly "in the field" with rather low-tech methods, which are better than none.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on May 30, 2015, 08:52:56 AM
The readings obtained on May 28 and 29, 2015 do confirm that our Earth's axis now appears to be moving counterclockwise again. 

On both days, the north-south line, that is the sun's shadow at exactly noon is pointing at location #8, as shown in our newly revised cardstock drawing of the actual site.  Note that location #8 is counterclockwise from location #4.

And I'll restate that this "movement" of the Earth's axis, or wobble, is not smooth, but seems to go in "fits and starts".    This is to be expected with a massive body such as Earth, normally in balance with the major external forces from Sun and moon.  But now it is obvious that something other than Sun and moon are adding to the mix of external forces acting upon the Earth, and these new forces are most likely both of mass and magnetics.

Note in this revised drawing, I have shown the cornerstone jutting out a bit from the building, as it does do, thus making for more accuracy in showing the north-south lines and their close proximity.

Stay tuned.....

Friday, June 5, 2015 readings of the direction of our sun's shadow from the base of our steel pole show that the Earth's axis of rotation continues to move counterclockwise. 

Our June 5 reading showed that at noon the north-south line was aligned with #16, which can be seen to the left of #15 (which is to the left of #8) on the cornerstone, and is shown on the cardstock drawing in my May 30, 2015 post (see Reply #44).

Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on June 16, 2015, 07:20:55 AM
Still, She moves.  Earth continues to wobble, and right now we are experiencing a move "to the left", which means our axis of rotation continues to migrate counterclockwise as shown on our cardstock drawing which depicts the actual site of our pole, which helps determine the direction and length of Sol's shadow at noon.

For today's post, I screen-captured a pic of our cardstock drawing that accompanies Reply #44 above.  As of noon on June 15, 2015, the sun's shadow struck location #25 on the concrete cornerstone base, which is still further left of its location last week.

Also, as mentioned before, I have been measuring the length of Sol's shadow at noon, and soon should have a batch of new data showing how far "over" the Earth is also tilting.  In other words, not only is it wobbling from "left to right to left, etc.", but its axis of rotation is tilting more southward, as best as I can determine, which means in the Northern Hemisphere, the mid-day summer sun is higher overhead. 

Said another way, this new southward tilting means the known tilt of Earth's axis of rotation of 23.44 deg. or 23.5 deg. from the ecliptic*,  is now less than 23.44 or 23.5 degrees.  If my calculations are correct, this decrease in the angle of Earth's axis tilt from the ecliptic is considerable.  Sometime after summer solstice around June 21 this year, the data on this more southward tilt will be complete enough to publish here.

* some sources show the Earth's axis of rotation is tilted from the ecliptic by 23.44 degrees; others say 23.5 degrees.

Summer Solstice
On June 21, 2015, summer solstice, at true solar noon, I documented the orientation of the north-south line of the sun's shadow against our concrete-reinforced steel pole, and found that the sun's shadow against the pole points to location #2 on our "cornerstone base".  In other words, it is ALMOST to the same point as it was on June 21, 2014 (location #1).

Rather than speculate, as I have so often done in the past, I'll just continue to record and post my findings, so we can all see what is happening.  Also, the length of the sun's shadow is shorter than that of last summer solstice, and those data, as mentioned earlier, will be posted soon.

Note that in 2014 I was gathering far fewer daily records, and for example, we have no way of knowing what happened between June 21, 2014 (location #1) and August 12, 2014 (location #2), although by looking at our cardstock depiction, it appears the north-south line moved only a tiny bit.  I will eventually set up strings for locations #1 and #2, then photograph it all in the field, then calculate the angle between the two lines.

The attached photo is the same one used with Reply #44.

Post by: ilinda on June 30, 2015, 06:51:48 AM
Yesterday on June 29, 2015, the sun's noon shadow fell upon position #1 (see cardstock drawing), which is where it was June 21, 2014.  So the Earth axis orientation has come full circle from last summer solstice, but about a week late.  The only thing that needs to be added to our cardstock drawing is this new date.

Sol's shadow at noon has lengthened a bit since last week and that information goes into a separate database, to be reported on later.

So the question now is, will we now change directions as in the past, or will this axis tilt continue moving counterclockwise?  If it does continue to move counterclockwise, it will be heading toward the location it was in 2011.  Time will tell and stay tuned.

Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on July 01, 2015, 07:40:41 AM
Finally I did a few calculations using the our sun's shadow at noon.  On summer or winter solstice, it should be easy to figure the number of degrees above the horizon that the sun should be.  In between those dates, it is not easy to extrapolate, and I am not sure how to go about determining "where" exactly the sun should be during the interim period, i.e., how high in the sky.

So for now here is the data:  we are in Black, MO, U.S.A., at latitude 37.55 deg. North, or 37 deg. 33' North.  Longitude of 90.992 deg West or 90 deg 59.5' West is not used in this calculation, but is included here for informational purposes.

On June 21, 2014 the sun's shadow against the 64.75" tall pole, at noon, measured 16.5" in length.
On June 21, 2015 the sun's shadow against the 64.75" tall pole, at noon, measured 15.75" in length.

Using trigonometry, with the height of the 64.75" pole as "y", and the length of sun's shadow as "x", one can calculate the angle of the sun above the horizon for each of these dates.  I did use a computer program to calculate the angles and still, the number seems high.  Here's my logic:

According to the computer program, the sun on June 21, 2014 was 75.7037957 degrees above the horizon.  Normally, one would add the 23.5 degrees of tilt, to the latitude, in this case, 37.55 degrees, to give 61.05 degrees.  The sun would, I think, normally be 61.05 degrees above the horizon for that date.  Subtracting 61.05 from 75.7037957 yields 14.653957 degrees which means the sun was 14.66 degrees higher than normal on that date. (NOTE: I believe I have made an error in logic and will post the correction to all of this on August 10, 2015.)

And on June 21, 2015, the sun was 76.3286929 degrees above the horizon.  Add 23.5 degrees for tilt, and 37.55 deg. for latitude to again get 61.05 degrees.  Subtracting 61.05 from 76.3286929 gives us 15.2786929 degrees.  Thus it appears the sun was 15.3 degrees higher in the sky than normal for that day.  (NOTE:  same logic error here; see correction on August 10, 2015 post.)

I have checked this several times and although it seems like a major change in the north-south tilt, the figures say that.  If anyone out there can see an error in my calculations, please let me know.

If needed I can post the lines of code in the computer program that calculates this, so if someone wants to check it, just yell!

If this is accurate as I feel it is, not only are we rocking back and forth from east to west and west to east, the earth's North Pole is tilting more "towards the sun" in the days around summer solstice.    Now having said that, I must add that I have only a small amount of data of the sun's shadow, and if I knew what to do with the data of sun's shadow length during those days between summer and winter solstices, I could work on that data as well.

If we were calculating the angle of the sun above the winter solstice horizon, we would be subtracting the normal axial tilt of 23.5 degrees from our latitude of 37.55 degrees.  That we'll do this coming winter.
Stay tuned for more on this topic.

Good work Ilinda.  I would like to check your calculations, but can't now because I am behind in other tasks.    Your raw data is sufficient to document irregularities in the Earth's orientation and/or position.

Another way to look at this north-south "tilt" or "lean" would be in miles or kilometers.  Here we will work in miles.

We first need to know the Earth's circumference which is the measurement around the earth, and which is slightly different, depending on whether you measure at the equator or around the poles. 

Earth's circumference around the equator is 24,901.55 miles and around the poles is 24,859.82 miles.  The average is 24,880.68 miles, which is the number we'll use.

Now because there are 360 degrees in any circle, and we consider our Earth to be a sphere (although it's not exactly), if we drew a circle around the earth there would be 360 degrees covering 24,880.68 miles.   Now to find how many miles are covered by each degree, we simply divide 24,880.68 by 360 and we get 69.113, rounded to 69.1 miles.  Thus each degree around the Earth represents 69.1 miles.

So, if for example we wanted to know how many miles are covered by 15.3 degrees, we would simply multiply 15.3 degrees by 69.1 miles per degree, and when we do, we get 1,057.23 miles. 

Looking at our findings regarding the north-south "tilt" or "lean", we could say that the Earth's north pole, on summer solstice 2015, was "leaning" or "tilting" 1,057.23 miles farther toward the sun than in the normal years of the past when its axial tilt was the usual 23.5 or 23.44 degrees, depending on the source.

Note:  I believe I have made a logic error in calculating the axial "lean" toward the sun and will post correction on August 10, 2015.

Another reading today of the Earth's east-west wobble shows we are still heading counterclockwise, or said another way, the Earth's north-south axis is moving "to the left".

If we only consider these readings obtained by using the sun's shadow against the concrete-reinforced steel pole, then we are entering uncharted territory.  If we consider the earlier readings from December, 2011 forward through June 21, 2014, using three sticks in the ground, then we are merely headed in the direction where the Earth's axis pointed in December, 2011.

In looking at the attached cardstock picture, today's north-south line (July 10, 2015) points to a location on the cornerstone base that is left of our "#1" mark for June 21, 2014.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on July 12, 2015, 10:04:45 AM
Still we move counterclockwise.

In my haste to post the additional findings from Friday, July 10, 2015, I inadvertently forget to give more detail, and will include it here.

The July 10 reading showed our north-south line registered 7" to the left of marker #28, the actual corner of our cornerstone base.
The July 11 reading showed our north-south line registered 10.75" to the left of this marker #28. 

Keep in mind that although three and three-quarters of an inch displacement seems like a lot,  it must be noted that the face of this cornerstone base is not exactly perpendicular to the north-south line.

Also, it must be noted that I have not assigned new numbers for these new locations yet, as I have discovered that weathering can eventually erase my pencil and magic marker "dots" and "lines", but a measurement of exact distance to an immovable object or location will not ordinarily change. 

For example, I had measured the location of #3 as being on the right concrete block wall and 10" to the right of the right storm cellar door frame.   Then I had also noted location #4 as being on the storm cellar door and being 2.75" to the left of the right storm cellar door jamb.  No matter how much rain, ice or snow we have, a tape measure can re-identify the locations exactly.

Stay tuned....

We are "waffling" again.  Here are some noon readings that suggest it. 
On June 29, 2015 our north-south line pointed to the #1 marker which is 5 5/8" left of the corner (marker #28) of our cornerstone base.
On July 5, 2015 the north-south line pointed to #1 described above.
On July 10, 2015 our north-south line pointed to a point 7" to the left of #28, the corner, or 1 3/8" left of our #1 marker.
On July 11, 2015 the north-south line pointed to a point 10.75" to the left of #28, or 5 5/8" left of the #1 marker.
On July 14, 2015 our north-south line pointed to #1 again.
On July 15, 2015, today, our north-south line pointed to a point 8.25" left of #28, or 2 5/8" left of #1.

While we "waffle", it is worth repeating that the stone face on which these current north-south line readings are marked is not perpendicular to the north-south line itself, making it difficult to easily calculate the angle of change (which can be done with a bit more work) from one reading to the next, or from one reading to any other. 

Regarding another type of aberrant Earth movement, I had posted on July 1 about the Earth's increased tilt or lean toward the sun at summer solstice, and said "if I knew what to do with the data of sun's shadow length during those days between summer and winter solstices, I could work on that data as well.

Now I realize that there are two additional dates that can yield valuable information on the whereabouts of our planet's polar axis, and those dates are the spring and autumn equinoxes.  On each of these days when the day and night are equal in length, and the Earth is mid-way between aphelion and perihelion, it should be easy to learn more about the "lean" or "tilt" of the Earth. 

Because on summer solstice the Earth's axial tilt makes our noon equator appear below the ecliptic by 23.5 degrees, and on winter solstice, Earth's axial tilt makes our noon equator appear above the ecliptic by 23.5 degrees.   So it seems logical that exactly on either spring or fall equinox,  there would be no apparent axial tilt at midday.   By measuring the length of the sun's noon shadow on either equinox, and by measuring the height of the pole that casts that shadow, one can determine, via trigonometry, the angle of the sun above the horizon. 

On equinox, the sun should be above the horizon by an angle that is exactly the latitude where the measurement is made.  For example, here at latitude of 37.55 degrees North, using pole height as "y" and sun shadow length as "x", we can determine the angle of the sun above the horizon and if all is well and normal, we would discover the noon sun is 37.55 degrees above our horizon.  If our trigonometry shows something different, then we have another piece of data for our database of data showing Earth's axis is learning or tilting to a greater or lesser degree than in years past.

One item of interest:  the side of the cornerstone base where the sun's north-south line currently strikes is 36" across.

If someone sees errors in my logic or anything else, please yell.  We are in this together.  Stay tuned....

The Earth's axis of rotation is still "waffling".

 Here are recent noon readings previously posted above:
On June 29, 2015 our north-south line pointed 5.625" left of the corner marker #28.  (#1 marker is 5.625" left of #28)
On July 5, 2015 the north-south line pointed 5.625" left of marker #28.
On July 10, 2015 our north-south line pointed 7" to the left of #28 (or 1 3/8" left of our #1 marker).
On July 11, 2015 the north-south line pointed 10.75" to the left of #28 (or 5.625" left of the #1 marker).
On July 14, 2015 our north-south line pointed to #1 again (5.625" left of #28).
On July 15, 2015, today, our north-south line 8.25" left of #28 (2.625" left of #1).

Now we have a few additional readings:
On July 17, 2015 our north-south line pointed 9.25" left of marker #28.
On July 22, 2015 the north-south line pointed 6.875" left of marker #28.
On July 24, 2015 our north-south line pointed 7.5" left of marker #28.

These data suggest we are waffling for a longer period of time than I have recorded in the past.  Stay tuned for further data.

Also, I have been pondering these two different alterations in our axis of rotation, the east-to-west and west-to-east wobble, as well as the increasing tilting-toward-the-sun of our axis in the days around summer solstice. 

My best guess is that an increase in attraction of mass for our Earth will cause one type of errant Earth behavior, and an increase in magnetics will cause a different type of deviant Earth behavior.

Thus, I feel the increasing tilt or lean toward the sun represents a result of a new magnetic influence on Earth, because the lean or tilt is parallel to the planet's magnetic lines of force that enter at the North Pole and exit at the South Pole, and thus any magnetic force that is new to our Earth and its vicinity should cause repulsion of one pole and attraction for another. 

Further, I believe that the east-to-west and west-to-east wobble is a result of mass, i.e., a new body/bodies of mass that are now affecting the earth in increasing amount.

Stay tuned for more data....

Thank you for your kind words, Ruth.

This whole process has evolved, starting from being shocked at seeing the difference between the 2011 and 2012 winter solstice readings, till now where I anxiously await new data, wondering "where" we are going.  I have no plans to stop recording this phenomenon, and then pondering its significance, although some unforeseen change in my life could pop up.

We are supposed to have full sun for about 4-5 days straight, so yesterday's data, plus these next few days will justify another post. 

Stay tuned brothers and sisters.

Clockwise again!

Yes, the Earth's axis of rotation is now drifting clockwise, or to the right, after "waffling" for a while.
Posted on July25 were these readings:
On July 17, 2015 our north-south line pointed 9.25" left of marker #28.
On July 22, 2015 the north-south line pointed 6.875" left of marker #28.
On July 24, 2015 our north-south line pointed 7.5" left of marker #28.

There were several more readings in July, all indicating waffling.  Then on August 1, things began to change.  Below are listings indicating we have moved out of waffling and our axis of rotation is now beginning once again to point, at high noon, more  clockwise than before.  Here are the latest data:
On August 1, 2015 our north-south line pointed to a position 5" left of marker #28.
On August 6, 2015 the north-south line pointed 2.5"left of marker #28.
On August 9, 2015 our north-south line pointed 1" left of marker #28.

Now, I have a proposal.  I am hoping someone out there in reader-land will experiment with a project such as this for two reasons:
1)  my dreams, etc., are becoming more insistent and intense, telling me I'm going to die if I remain where I am.
2) in order to learn the direction and orientation of the north-south line (axis of rotation) it is not necessary for someone to build a huge steel pole, encased in concrete, etc.  A flagepole could be used as long as it is level on all sides, and you know, or can determine, flagpole's height.   All the information one needs for a low-tech setup is somewhere in these posts. 

Then, if nothing dire happens for now, the bonus is that we will have two different sources gathering data.  Good luck everybody.

And stay tuned for more.....

Hopefully someone else can pick up the baton if something dire happens to this ol' goat herder.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on August 10, 2015, 09:07:00 PM
Hopefully this post will correct my logic errors shown in posts #49 and 51.  After posting that the Earth is leaning/pointing/tilting more toward the sun, or "into" the sun at and around summer solstice, something kept nagging at me that my calculations showing we are about 15 degrees too far "over" toward the sun at that time, were indeed too "far over"!  Actually they were wrong due to my flawed logic.  So I checked around and think I've corrected it.  If not, stay tuned for another correction!

In a nutshell, I erred in thinking about how to determine what the sun's angle above the horizon should be on any given solstice.  For summer solstice, subtract the angle of 23.5 degrees (commonly known as the angle of tilt away from the ecliptic, of our axis of rotation) from the latitude of the location in question.  For my location, latitude is 37.55 degrees North, so 37.55 - 23.5= 14.05.  Now, subtract 14.05 from 90 degrees, and we have 75.95 degrees which would be the normal angle of the sun from my horizon at true solar noon, on summer solstice.

What the angle actually is I found by using trigonometry, with the pole height as "y", and sun's shadow length as "x", and tan (angle)=y/x, that the angles for summer solstices of 2014 and 2015 were slightly different from each other and from the normal, but not too far off.

Summer solstice, 2014 sun's angle to horizon was 75.7037957 degrees, which is about 0.25 of a degree less than the "should be" of 75.95 degrees.

Summer solstice, 2015 sun's angle to horizon was 76.3286929 degrees, which is 0.38 of a degree higher in sky than it would be under normal conditions.  With only two summer solstice readings, it may seem wise to make no assumptions or judgements about our axis of rotation leaning more toward the sun.  On the other hand, one must keep in mind the fact that beginning in 2011, we have observed the condition of "broad daylight at 5 PM" on winter solstice, when ordinarily it is totally dark long before that time, usually by 4:45 PM.

It is important to remember that these readings of the sun's angle above the horizon on a given solstice, are different from the often-daily readings I obtain by noting the direction the sun's shadow makes at true solar noon.  These readings are telling us about our east-to-west, as well as our west-to-east wobble that has been going on for as long as I have been keeping records beginning in December, 2011.

 Much to ponder here, friends, and more data to gather.  Again, if anyone sees any errors, no matter how small or large, just yell.

The Earth's axis of rotation now continues to move clockwise, or "to the right".

Below are the recently posted data, as a review:
On August 1, 2015 our north-south line pointed to a position 5" left of marker #28.
On August 6, 2015 the north-south line pointed 2.5" left of marker #28.
On August 9, 2015 our north-south line pointed 1" left of marker #28.

And the newest data shows our Earth axis of rotation continues to move to the right or clockwise:
On August 11, 2015 the north-south line at noon pointed 0.5" (one-half inch) left of marker #28.
On August 13, 2015 the north-south line at noon pointed at marker #28, the actual corner of the "cornerstone base".

As mentioned before, this movement or wobble of the axis never seems to be a nice smoothe passage, but is more like "fits and starts", or maybe like a ratchet wrench.

Below is an updated cardstock drawing showing the 8-13-15 date having been added to the cardstock. Stay tuned for more data....

Sun's high-noon shadow against immovable, level object continues day by day, to gradually move clockwise.

Recent data:
On August 11, 2015 the north-south line at noon pointed 0.5" (one-half inch) left of marker #28.
On August 13, 2015 the north-south line at noon pointed at marker #28, the actual corner of the "cornerstone base".

New data:
On August 14, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 0.25" to the right of marker #28.
On August 15, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 0.75" to the right of marker #28.
On August 17, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 4.25" to the right of marker #28.

One might wonder why such a huge difference in readings in the two-day period between Aug. 15 and 17?  The right side of the cornerstone base is at a very sharp angle, and is almost parallel to the current north-south line (sun's shadow).

Hopefully soon I can submit photos of the actual site, with a white tarp on ground, and with strings attached to the pivot pole, each string representing a particular date and the sun's shadow on that date.

Until then, updates to follow as often as possible....

Earth's axis of rotation continues to move clockwise.

Recent observations:
On August 14, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 0.25" to the right of marker #28.
On August 15, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 0.75" to the right of marker #28.
On August 17, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 4.25" to the right of marker #28.

New observations:
On August 24, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 11" to the right of marker #28.
On August 25, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 14.25" to the right of marker #28.
On August 26, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 17" to the right of marker #28.
On August 27, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 18.75" to the right of marker #28.

This current clockwise drift of our axis of rotation seems to be a bit more constant, or continuous, than in the past.  Speaking from memory, without all my data in front of me, I would say that this wobble movement has always seemed to be in "fits and starts", rather than little by little, every day.  Is this a new trend?  We will soon see, as I try to collect the data every sunny day.

Also, coming up in a little over three weeks is fall equinox, the time when day and night are of equal length.  It is on either spring or fall equinox that we can determine more about a different type of earth movement, i.e., the "lean" of the north pole toward, or away from, the sun. 

On equinox this year, we will be gathering two types of data:  1) the angle of the sun above the horizon at this latitude of 37.55 deg North; and 2) the angle that the sun would/should normally be above the horizon at latitude of 37.55 deg North.  In other words, if where it is matches where it should be then we have no "lean".

Photo attached shows marker #28, the corner of the cornerstone base, which is 36" from left to right.  Stay tuned for more.

Still, our axis of rotation moves clockwise.

Recent observations:
On August 24, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 11" to the right of marker #28.
On August 25, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 14.25" to the right of marker #28.
On August 26, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 17" to the right of marker #28.
On August 27, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 18.75" to the right of marker #28.

New Observations:
On September 2, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 24.125" to the right of marker #28.
On September 3, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 26.5" to the right of marker #28.
On September 4, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 27" to the right of marker #28.
On September 5, 2015 north-south line at noon pointed 31.125" to the right of marker #28.

This current clockwise movement of our axis of rotation does seem to be more steady than in the past, not in 'fits and starts" now.  And because the face of this cornerstone base against which the sun's noon shadow now shines is 36" on each side, it appears we are about to move beyond this base, and continue heading toward markers # 3 and 4.  But rather than get ahead of myself, we are where we are, and we do not know what tomorrow brings.

The point farthest clockwise ever documented using the new level, steel post was on September 23, 2014, only 2 days after fall equinox, and it is obvious I need to update the attached photo to include the north-south lines farther right, including September 23, 2014.
Where will we be on 2015 fall equinox?

Stay tuned.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift

Steady She moves, and still clockwise.

Recent observations:
On September 2, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 24.125" to the right of marker #28.
On September 3, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 26.5" to the right of marker #28.
On September 4, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 27" to the right of marker #28.
On September 5, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 31.125" to the right of marker #28.

New observations:
On September 6, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 32.75" to the right of marker #28.
On September 9, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 36" to the right of marker #28; thus, the string brushed the right corner of the cornerstone base, and when stretched out further, touched the storm cellar door at a point 7.625" left of the right door jamb.
On September 13, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 1.125" left of the right door jamb.

We can see from the latest photos, attached, that today's marker is slightly to the right of our marker #4,  pointing no longer on the cornerstone base, but now on the storm cellar door.   It will be interesting to see how close the 2015 Fall Equinox line will be to that for September 23, 2014 (marker #3), assuming we will have sun on the right day (never guaranteed).   It will also be interesting (riveting) to see whether we "turn around" or continue to move clockwise.  Time will tell.  And stay tuned.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on September 17, 2015, 04:54:03 PM
We are nearing Fall Equinox and that often brings changes, plus it is one of two times of the year when daylight time equals night time.  It is also another time when a person can observe the length of the sun's noon shadow against a pole/post of known height, and from that data, calculate the angle that the sun is above the viewer's horizon.

We can also calculate the angle that the sun should be above the horizon.  Come the day of Equinox, we'll do just that, assuming we have sun.

For now, we are still noting the apparent wobble from east-to-west and west-to-east of the Earth's axis of rotation.  We have been seeing it migrating to the right, or clockwise for a while now, and today's post suggests it is possibly beginning to "waffle" which it does when it is turning around.  But it is too early to say, based on this small amount of data:

Recent observations:

On September 6, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 32.75" to the right of marker #28.
On September 9, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 36" to the right of marker #28; thus, the string brushed the right corner of the cornerstone base, and when stretched out further, touched the storm cellar door at a point 7.625" left of the right door jamb.
On September 13, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed 1.125" left of the right door jamb.

New observations:
On September 14, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed exactly at the corner, where the storm cellar door meets the right door jamb.
On September 15, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed to the right door jamb, 2.75" to the right of storm-cellar-door and door jamb corner.
On September 16, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed to the right door jamb, 3.125" to the right of the storm-cellar-door and door jamb corner.
On September 17, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed to the right door jamb, 2.75" to the right of storm-cellar-door and door jamb corner.

Thus, every day listed above, the north-south line gradually moved to the right, until today, where it appears to have moved counterclockwise.  We shall see if this is the beginning stages of the "waffling" during "turnaround", which may take days or weeks, assuming the process is as in the past.  Time will tell.  If we continue to see data indicating we are now moving counterclockwise again, then we did not move as far clockwise this year as in September, 2014, as seen in the cardstock representation.

Stay tuned for more, especially equinox data.

Today being Autumn Equinox (approx. 4 AM), it is a good time to post new data.

Recent Observations:
On September 14, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed exactly at the corner, where the storm cellar door meets the right door jamb.
On September 15, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed to the right door jamb, 2.75" to the right of storm-cellar-door and door jamb corner.
On September 16, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed to the right door jamb, 3.125" to the right of the storm-cellar-door and door jamb corner.
On September 17, 2015 north-south line at noon CST pointed to the right door jamb, 2.75" to the right of storm-cellar-door and door jamb corner.

New Observations:
On September 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on door jamb, 4.5" right of storm-cellar-door to door-jamb-corner.
On September 19, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at outer corner of door jamb, flush with adjacent concrete.
On September 21, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 1.5" right of right door frame.
On September 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 3.25" right of right door frame.
On September 23, 2015, Equinox, noon CST, north-south line pointed to location #3 on concrete, exactly where it pointed September 23, 2014.

The cardstock will be updated to include some new dates before next post, but for now it will serve.  Interestingly, if a person were only monitoring on Autumn Equinox dates, and had just begun last year, that person would have no clue about what has been happening regarding our axis of rotation.

The big question now is, what's next?  Time will tell, so stay tuned.

On the day of Autumn Equinox, September 23, 2015, I did manage to get the length of sun's shadow at true solar noon, and thus can calculate how high our Sol is on our horizon, as well as how high it should/would be if all were normal.

Latitute here is 37.55 deg. N. latitude, and thus, Sol should be 90 degrees minus 37.55 degrees= 52.45 degrees above the horizon here.  Our calculated number of where the sun actually is, i.e., how high above the horizon, is very close, being 52.8128728= 52.81 degrees.

The details:
 "Y" = the height of pole against which sun shines, and casts shadow=64.75" 
 "X" = the length of that shadow cast by our 64.75" tall pole = 49.125"
 tangent of our desired angle (tan angle)= Y/X=64.75/49.125= 1.3181
Since tan of 1.3175= 52 deg 48'
   and tan of 1.3182= 52 deg. 49'
then we will say our 1.3181 is close enough to say our sun's angle above the horizon on Fall Equinox is about 52.81 deg.  And 52.81 isn't a lot more than 52.45.

The difference in this case between where sun should be above horizon, and is,  isn't alarming for two particular reasons:
1)  without high tech tools, including computer-interfaced laser pointer, greater accuracy is difficult;
2)  the farther away the shadow is from its source, the "fuzzier" the edges of that shadow. 

For example, around summer solstice, at this latitude, measuring Sol's shadow is much easier as the noon shadow is around 15 or 16" long, and very close to the pole.  Here at fall equinox, that shadow has already lengthened to nearly 50".  Try this at home:  hold a flashlight near a white sheet of paper, and cast a shadow against a nearby pen, pencil, or whatever.   Now try a similar exercise with the pen or pencil and its shadow quite a bit farther from the flashlight, and you'll notice how hazy and fuzzy the shadow's edge is.  That is what we face when working with longer and longer sun shadows, and IIRC the winter solstice sun shadow is greater than 10'.

On the other hand, it is possible that these figures are highly accurate and the sun is indeed 0.36 degrees higher in the sky than normal.  Since one degree of circumference equals about 69.1 miles, 0.36 deg. would equal about 25 miles, meaning the sun would be 25 miles higher in the sky than normal, still not a lot.

More data coming, so stay tuned.

We're entering uncharted territory--possibly.

Recent observations:
On September 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on door jamb, 4.5" right of storm-cellar-door to door-jamb-corner.
On September 19, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at outer corner of door jamb, flush with adjacent concrete.
On September 21, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 1.5" right of right door frame.
On September 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 3.25" right of right door frame.
On September 23, 2015, Equinox, noon CST, north-south line pointed to location #3 on concrete, exactly where it pointed September 23, 2014.

New observations:
On September 24, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 7" right of right door frame.
On September 25, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 10" right of right door frame (on marker #3).
On September 28, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 9.125" right of right door frame.
On October 1, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 16.125" right of right door frame.

So far, I have not recorded any readings this far "to the right" or this far clockwise from the previous range of readings.  One caveat is that during 2014 I was not recording quite as often, so it is possible that before, or after September 23, 2014, the north-south line did veer over in the range it was in today, and still managed to turn around and head back to the location shown on the cardstock for December, 2014.  Another thing is that prior to June, 2014, I was using the "sticks in the ground" and the only reading that was aligned with an immovable object is that of December, 2011.

The only new changes made to our cardstock are the addition of our October 1, 2015 line; plus I erased that little pesky "marker 3.8" on the right door jamb, that was never officially used and just muddied and cluttered the picture.

With more readings, as often as possible, only time will tell us if we are indeed in uncharted territory.  Stay tuned.

Still we continue to move clockwise.  I should mention that the concrete referred to in these observations measures 23.5" in width from left to right.

Previous observations:
On September 24, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 7" right of right door frame.
On September 25, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 10" right of right door frame (on marker #3).
On September 28, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete, 9.125" right of right door frame.
On October 1, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 16.125" right of right door frame.

New observations:
On October 5, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 22.5" right of right door frame.
On October 6, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 23" right of right door frame.
On October 8, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 23.5" right of right door frame, and exactly at the corner of concrete.

Since we are at the end of that section of concrete/concrete blocks, and assume the Earth's axis of rotation will continue to the right, or clockwise, we will need some new immovable objects against which the sun's noon shadow can shine.  They are there, but I hadn't drawn them into the cardstock yet so as not to clutter the picture with unneeded objects. 

In my next installment, I'll have a new or updated cardstock drawing, plus a photo of the actual site, particularly the part where we are are currently observing.

The Earth's axis of rotation continues, still, to move clockwise, although it appears with a tiny bit of "waffling", sort of like a "tug-of-war".

Recent observations:

On October 5, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 22.5" right of right door frame.
On October 6, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 23" right of right door frame.
On October 8, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed on concrete 23.5" right of right door frame, and exactly at the corner of concrete.

New observations:  (noting that we reached the "end of the line" on the concrete blocks, so further observations (for now) will be on our "add-on board", a piece of 1X6 lumber attached to posts supporting a porch, and which is "around the corner" from the concrete block wall.)

On October 10, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.125" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.
On October 11, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.875" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.
On October 12, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.125" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.
On October 13, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.125" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.  (I checked this measurement several times in rapid succession, as the 2" difference seemed a bit much for one day.)

For now our cardstock drawing will be outdated until I can sketch in the porch posts, showing add-on board.  In the meantime, a few photos of the actual site are attached for better orientation.  Another new item, not yet shown,  is a yardstick that can easily hang on the add-on board to make the marker determination MUCH easier than before when I had to scurry around with tape measure, from one location to another to get both length of sun's shadow and the location where that shadow points on some immovable object, all at noon.

Soon I can determine the angles between our farthest counter-clockwise north-south line location, December, 2011, and any of our other location markers determined since that time, particularly since June, 2014 after which all further measurements were gotten using the steel post/pole. 

This is just an aside, but if we continue this trend of our north-pointing axis of rotation moving farther and farther toward east, won't that make sunrise a bit earlier, and likewise sunsets earlier in the Northern Hemisphere?  Just thinking out loud here.
Stay tuned.....
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on October 18, 2015, 02:57:06 PM
For now our Earth's axis of rotation seems to be somewhat ratcheting in its clockwise movement, sort of like two steps forward, one step back, two steps forward, one step back, etc.   Isn't the movement we are now seeing sort of like what a rider experiences on the uphill side of the roller coaster?  It is obvious we haven't reached the "peak" yet!

Recent observations:
On October 10, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.125" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.
On October 11, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.875" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.
On October 12, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.125" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.
On October 13, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.125" to the right of concrete blocks, on add-on board.

New observations:
On October 14, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.
On October 15, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.
On October 16, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.125" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.
On October 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.75" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.

We can better understand the gradual pace of the sun's noon shadow across the add-on board by considering that this board measures 96.375" in length from the concrete block wall, to the porch supporting post on the right.  Assuming this clockwise trend continues across our add-on board, we may have to shave a few branches off of a small cedar tree nearby, as we are running out of "immovable objects" against which we can align a straight line through the sun's shadow.

I'm posting the pic of the add-on board showing what 96.375" looks like at out site.  Stay tuned for more data.

This is an "in-between" post to show the latest upgrade to the add-on board.  With two tiny brads in place, the yardstick easily attaches for observations, and then can be easily lifted off for indoor storage.

If and when we near the end of the yardstick, I'll attach a second one.

Picture attached.

Still our north-south line representing Earth's axis of rotation in the Northern Hemisphere continues moving clockwise, albeit in a ratcheting motion.
Recent observations:

On October 14, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.
On October 15, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.
On October 16, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.125" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.
On October 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.75" to the right of concrete block wall, on the add-on board.

New observations:
On October 20, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.375" (to the right of concrete block wall), on add-on board.
On October 21, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" right on add-on board.
On October 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right on add-on board.
On October 25, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on add-on board.

OK, doing some crude math, we reached the end of the concrete, and beginning of the add-on board, on October 8, and in 17 days, our north-south line has moved slightly greater than six inches across our add-on board, from the far left edge, to its current location. 

Assuming we continue to move at the same pace and in same direction, ratcheting or not, we can just divide the length of our board, 96.375" by 6" to arrive at the projected time that will elapse before our north-south line points to the right edge of our add-on board.  Multiplying 17 days (per six inch span) times 16 (96 divided by 6) to arrive at 272 days.   Assuming all else remains the same, it would take about nine months for the north-south line, (pointing north at our add-on board) to traverse the board, and since 17 days have already elapsed, we can speculate that in early July our north-south line may be pointing at approximately the right edge of our add-on board.  That is a lot of assuming, but for now that is what we do.

In the meantime, attached are a few pics.  N-SLines3.JPG shows four separate strings, each representing a different north-south line.  Moving clockwise, the yellow string that "slices" through the right side of the stones aligns with our December, 2011 line.  Next, the bright orange line points toward June, 2014.  The third string, a pale pink/orange points toward December 17, 2014.  The white string, faint but visible slightly to the left, overlying the long narrow board, represents the north-south line for today, October 25, 2015.  This shot is looking south toward the solar mount.

In N-SLines4.JPG, aimed north, only three strings are visible, representing left to right, June 21, 2014, December 17, 2014, and October 25, 2015.  Most of these dates, as well as many others are already on our cardstock drawing, a composite I periodically update, in order to show the bigger picture.

The N-SLines5.JPG shows three lines, particularly our December, 2011 north-south line represented by the yellow string farther left than the other strings, which are detailed above.

Several more shots will follow in a day or two as soon as I can do a few calculations to determine some angles, as promised for quite some time.  Stay tuned...

Today being cloudy, it seemed a good time to post this addendum.

In looking at our four markers, (see yesterday's post) each with their representative strings, indicating December 22, 2011, June 21, 2014, December 17, 2014, and October 25, 2015 north-south lines which obviously are not pointing at the same "north" these days, it is time to determine the angle between these lines, to show us how far our axis of rotation is wobbling (thanks to Jim Farmer's suggestion).

Early on, I had done a brief look at this, by looking at the difference between December 22, 2011 and December 21, 2012 north-south lines, and as mentioned then, I just gently pushed a carpenter's square between those lines and saw a 45 degree difference.

Now it is nice to see what is happening here, four years later.  My records show that marker #4 represents a number of dates, including May 13, 2014, May 19, 2015, May 22, 2015, as well as December 17, 2014.  One of the four lines I resurrected yesterday was December 17, 2014, and we know from our earlier comparison between December, 2011 and May 22, 2015, that the difference was (from memory) about 39 degrees.  Logically, because the December 17, 2014  north-south line pointed at the same marker then as did the May 22, 2015 north-south line, so we already know the difference:  about 39 degrees.

But we have a new, "farther-clockwise" line for October 25, 2015 and after measuring off 3" on the horizontal axis, then taking the exact perpendicular, it was found that the vertical axis was about 3" or possibly 3 1/32", thus we can say "x" and "y" are both 3, which means a 45 degree angle.  See two attached photos.

Well, this 45 degree angle is nothing new, even if the "y" axis or vertical line connecting the "x" axis with the "hypotenuse" is 3 1/32, we are close enough to 45 degrees to call it that for now.

So, while we are not yet in "uncharted territory",  we ARE getting close.  Stay tuned for more observations and more data posted.

Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift

Cloudys days made observations sparse recently, but I did manage to get three readings.

Recent observations were:
On October 20, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.375" (to the right of concrete block wall), on add-on board.
On October 21, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" right on add-on board.
On October 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right on add-on board.
On October 25, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on add-on board.

New observations:
On October 29, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7" to the right of add-on board.
On November 1, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" to the right of add-on board.
On November 6, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5" to the right of add-on board.

With three new, consecutive readings suggesting counterclockwise axial movements, one has to ask, are we suddenly reversing the clockwise movement of Earth's  axis of rotation?  In the past, when we did reverse, we always seemed to "waffle" a bit back and forth for days or weeks before consistently moving in one direction or another.  The best thing to do for now is wait and see, because never before in these several years of making these observations has the data shown that when we reverse directions, we do so suddenly.  It just has not happened.  But it could. 

Attached is the closeup of the add-on board and stay tuned for more readings.

Last week I had an opportunity to meet an astronomy teacher, so of course jumped at the idea.  It was a pleasant meeting and the guy was cordial and willing to dialogue.

When I finally wove into the conversation about the findings I've been recording here, he said he didn't want to "burst my bubble", but thought it was analemma I was recording.  This gives me reason to revisit analemma, which thanks to Jim Farmer, has already been touched earlier.

When I looked at analemma in my Encyclopedia of Astronomy, I realized two things: 
1)  it could not possibly be only analemma that I'm recording because the degree(s) of deviation toward east or west in a normal analemma is tiny and we have many, many double-digit east or west deviations, including 45 degrees, in what we are now experiencing; and
2)  now I see why the books have always said that if you want to know true north and south, it must be done on either winter or summer solstice because those are  two dates at "ground zero", neither wafting slightly to the right/east or to the left/west of true north; but spring or autumn equinox will give equal results as well.

I pondered creating an analemma-of-sorts for 2015 using all the data I've accumulated, but the main problem is that for each point on the analemma, one needs not only the number of degrees deviation that day from north, but also the inclination, i.e., the angle the sun makes with the horizon.  It is the sun's shadow that will help us find the inclination, and it is the sun's shadow that I do not always obtain.   The goal now is to be diligent enough to gather enough data for a 2016 analemma.

Post by: ilinda on November 08, 2015, 02:34:08 PM
After reviewing recent data, I decided it's time to update our cardstock drawing to include a few angles, plus one of the most recent north-south lines, and more.

I ran a string along the December, 2011 north-south line, attaching it to the solar mount, and at the same time, attached a string to represent October 25, 2015, which was 6.125" to the right along the "add-on board".  The purpose of this was to determine the angle between our furthermost left, or counterclockwise, north-south line of December, 2011, and our almost-farthest right, or clockwise, north-south line of October 25, 2015. 

By performing the same basic procedure as posted earlier, photographing the strings, then doing the trigonometry on the string/lines, (as was done to determine the angle between May 22, 2015 and December, 2011), I found the angle between December, 2011 and October 25, 2015 to be about 45 degrees.

 Interestingly, that is the angle that the carpenter's square showed on December 21, 2012 when I snugged the square between the only two north-south lines I had at that time:  December, 2011 and December 21, 2012.  This says to me that on October 25, 2015 and these recent days since then, Earth's north-south line is pointing about where it was on December 21, 2012, thus I affixed these two dates for this latest north-south line on the cardstock, as well as listing the angle.

I also added to the cardstock the angle obtained between the line for December, 2011 and the line for May 22, 2015/December 17, 2015.

Note:  I should mention that had I computed the angle between December, 2011 and October 29, 2015 north-south lines, (rather than using October 25) the angle would still be about 45 degrees, as the difference between those two October lines is not great.

In a nutshell, it seems no matter how much wobbling the Earth does, in its right-to-left, or left-to-right manner, it appears to be reversing its direction in the vicinity of, or before, it reaches that magic number of 45 degrees.  So far, at least.

I attempted to attach RAW format pictures, instead of the usual jpeg, but after waiting more than 10 minutes with no luck (as in the past), decided I'll retake the pics in jpeg and post them later today (written in AM).  It's later and here are a couple of JPG's to show the updated cardstock, and if we have a sunny day tomorrow, there will be another update.  It's getting more interesting.  Stay tuned.

We have three additional observation reports to add to our growing database of north-south line directions.

Recent observations:

On October 29, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7" to the right on add-on board.
On November 1, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" to the right on add-on board.
On November 6, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5" to the right on add-on board.

New observations:
On November 7, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" to the right on add-on board.
On November 8, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.75" to the right on add-on board.
On November 9, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.25" to the right on add-on board.

Without readings on October 30 or 31, we cannot know what happened on those dates, but the trend which started between October 29 and November 1, was an abrupt turn-around of Earth's axis of rotation.  So far, this is a first, as detailed before, where we seem to "waffle" for a while during the turnaround period.  The only "waffling" we see is between yesterday and today.  My best guess is that this abrupt turnaround relates to the force/forces new to our solar system, which are most likely operating in such a way that they are exerting increasing influence on Earth. 

I'm trying not to editorialize this situation and just report what the sun's shadow shows:  both the direction, as well as the length of shadow (to be reported later).  So stay tuned for more updates.


Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on November 13, 2015, 04:53:05 PM
It appears our Earth's axis of rotation is now actually "waffling" again as reported in the past.

Recent observations:

On November 7, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" to the right on add-on board.
On November 8, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.75" to the right on add-on board.
On November 9, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.25" to the right on add-on board.

New observations:
On November 10, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" to the right on add-on board.
On November 11, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.875" to the right on add-on board.
On November 13, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.625" to the right on add-on board.

So now it's official.  We are "waffling", and presumably the mass of our Earth is "preparing" to begin drifting to the left, or counterclockwise, after a rather steady march to the right, or clockwise.  But because there may be many different forces, in varying directions and strengths, we just continue to observe and it is best to assume nothing.

So stay tuned for more readings, as well as for a facsimile of an analemma.  A true analemma is a diagram or photograph that represents one year of observations, each gathered several days to a week or so apart, of the Earth's north-south line, at a given location.  There are two pieces of data needed to construct an analemma, one being the inclination, or the height of the sun above the horizon for that particular latitude, on each date, and the other being the amount, in degrees, of deviation from the normal north-south line, on that particular date.   A typical analemma will show four points that are perfectly aligned with regard to east-west deviation:  spring and fall equinoxes, and summer and winter solstices.  Each of these four dates will, in normal times, be precisely aligned with zero deviation to the east or west.  Further the analemma will map out in a very long, longitudinal figure eight, that is quite narrow as the overall deviation to either east or west will only be a few degrees.

Our facsimile analemma will be nothing at all of a narrow figure eight.  It is a work in progress at present as I need more readings of the sun's shadow at noon, which can be used to calculate it's angle of elevation from the horizon.  It will happen, but in the meantime, with sunny days, many readings can be obtained and posted regarding the direction our north-south line is pointiing.

Stay tuned for more data to follow.....

For now, the Earth's axis of rotation is still in a "waffling" period. 
Recent observations:

On November 10, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" to the right on add-on board.
On November 11, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.875" to the right on add-on board.
On November 13, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.625" to the right on add-on board.

New observations:
On November 14, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" right on add-on board.
On November 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on add-on board.
On November 19, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right on add-on board.

Still, we waffle.  Picture of the add-on board attached;  stay tuned for more observations.

Gee thanks, Ruth.  I'm hoping more people will realize that the Earth will not remain in a seemingly stable state for eons, and then suddenly one day "decide" to flip over, with no warning signs given.  There is too much mass and too much inertia, for it to be a sudden, out-of-the blue incident.  I'm guessing what we are seeing is the preliminaries, i.e., the warnings of some major changes on the horizon.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on November 23, 2015, 03:19:53 PM
For now, the north pole of Earth's axis of rotation is migrating counterclockwise, or left. 
Recent observations:
On November 14, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" right on add-on board.
On November 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on add-on board.
On November 19, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right on add-on board.

New observations:
On November 20, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.125" right on add-on board.'
On November 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.625" right of door frame, on concrete.
On November 23, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 17.5" right of door frame, on concrete.

So now the north-south line no longer points anywhere at noon, on our add-on board, and now is swinging back to the concrete block wall.  Further, we have had four consecutive readings that show each one more counterclockwise than the one before.  So now we drift to the left again.

Also, I dug out a book I bought in the recent past that will augment my studies of the cosmos.  The book by Roger Freedman and William Kauffmann III is titled UNIVERSE and I've been diving into it eagerly.  It should help me see any errors I may have made, and/or help clarify some things.

A pic is attached that shows the add-on board, and the adjacent concrete;  an updated photo will appear asap.

Today was beautiful and sunny, but unfortunately I was not home, thus could not get a reading on our Earth's axis of rotation and "where we are" (still moving left).
Recent observations:

On November 20, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.125" right on add-on board.
On November 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.625" right of door frame, on concrete.
On November 23, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 17.5" right of door frame, on concrete.

New observations:
November 24, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.125" right of door frame, on concrete.
December 1, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.5" right of door frame, on concrete.
December 3, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.0" right of door frame, on concrete.
December 4, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right of door frame, on concrete.

Still I am gathering data regarding the sun's angle above the horizon, as often as possible, and by year's end, should be able to create an analemma for 2015, which should look like no analemma we have ever seen before.  As you probably know, three parameters, height of the sun above the horizon, one's latitude, and the location of the north-south line, depicting the Earth's axis of rotation, are needed to create an analemma, which should be unique for each latitude.

Another thing I am working on will help tell us where this north-south line was back in 1980!  Yes, 1980.  We were about to have built our first house in 1981, so on winter solstice, in December, 1980, we set up the "three sticks in the ground" at exactly noon.  (That is basically a sundial.)  That was the guide for the builder so he could orient our house exactly in a north-south direction, so it would face south.  We felt that he did abide by our directions given, as the house seemed to face south as we wanted.

Now, 35 years later, it will be interesting to see how the 2015 north-south line compares to that of 1980.  I plan very soon to establish a string, along the entire east side of  the house, and extending out (north), in preparation for the solstice coming up.  Details and pictures to follow.

In the meantime, I'm attaching a pic of our cardstock showing various north-south lines, many of which are not posted for sake of clarity.  After winter solstice, the new line will be added to the cardstock, in case the back-and-forth movement isn't confusing enough already.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on December 09, 2015, 03:58:04 PM
Today was hazy with intermittent sun, including sun right up until about 11:55AM, then chem-haze wafted in front of the sun, thus only two readings to post.
Previous observations:
November 24, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.125" right of door frame, on concrete.
December 1, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.5" right of door frame, on concrete.
December 3, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.0" right of door frame, on concrete.
December 4, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right of door frame, on concrete.

New observations:
December 7, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1" right of the "outer corner" of right door jamb, (barely on right door frame).
December 8, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at "outer corner" of right door jamb.

Thus, Earth's axis of rotation continues to migrate to the left, or counterclockwise, and because we are approaching winter solstice, we wonder if our north-south line, which reflects the axis, will land smack dab on an earlier winter solstice.

You can match these observations with the marks and landmarks in/on the attached pic of our cardstock.  Update to follow...

Post by: ilinda on December 16, 2015, 04:16:26 PM
As we approach winter solstice, it appears our north-south line on that day will align itself with the December, 2014 solstice, or very nearly so, which means the Earth's axis of rotation is at least lining up, or nearly so, with that of the previous year.  Last year, if you recall, December was cloudy nearly every day of the month and the only readings near solstice were on December 17 and 25.  This year we have a better chance at a sunny solstice.
Recent observations:

December 7, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1" right of the "outer corner" of right door jamb, (barely on right door frame).
December 8, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at "outer corner" of right door jamb.

New observations:
December 10, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" to the right, on the door jamb, from the "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 15, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" to the right, on the door jamb, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 16, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.25" to the right, on the door jamb, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.

As we can see, from matching these observations with our cardstock drawing, Earth's axis of rotation, reflected in the north-south line, continues to migrate left, or counterclockwise.

The hope is that I can recruit some reliable person (hubby hopefully) to obtain readings on solstice from our December, 1980 north-south line mentioned in an earlier post.  Stay tuned.

Post by: ilinda on December 22, 2015, 04:13:35 PM
Because of clouds it was impossible to get a reading exactly at noon on Winter Solstice, but 60 seconds later, at 12:01 PM the sun presented itself for a few minutes, so I have extrapolated a tiny bit for December 21.

Recent observations:
December 10, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" to the right, on the door jamb, from the "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 15, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" to the right, on the door jamb, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 16, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.25" to the right, on the door jamb, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.

New observations:
December 17, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" to the right, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" to the right, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 21, 2015, noon--clouds, but at 12:01 PM, CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" to the right, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.  This means that at
     noon, CST, the north-south line was slightly left of, or counterclockwise from, its location at 12:01, which could place it pointing at the corner, or even slightly
     on the cellar door.
December 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed to the right corner of the cornerstone base.

If we look at our cardstock drawing depicting the current movement of our Earth's axis of rotation, and examine our three recent consecutive missing pieces of data for 12-19, 12-20, and 12-21, along with the data just prior to, and after the missing dates, we can see the axis is still moving counterclockwise, or left.  It appears at a glance that there is a major jump between December 18 and 22, but it is worth restating that the freehand cardstock drawing isn't drawn exactly to scale, (I tried), but is worth mentioning that a line that touches the right corner of our cornerstone base, as it did today, is very close to any line that touches the right part of the cellar door, or even much of the left part of the door jamb.

Also, while the axis is indeed appearing to move leftward, there appeared to be a minor bit of "waffling" evidenced by the data for 17th and 18th, and it is even possible that we "waffled" on the 19th and 20th.   But still our net movement is counterclockwise.

That above pertains to our east-to-west and west-to-east, or right-to-left and left-to-right movements.  Also I have managed to gather data regarding the sun's elevation, on as many dates as possible, including today, and after the year is over, will be able to compile it into something sensible, as that data will tell us about our north-south wobble if there is one beginning. 

Stay tuned for more data.....

Thanks to both of you, Enlightenme and Yowbarb.

In the next week or so there will be several new tidbits, including the results of checking our our December 21, 1980 north-south line, compared to that of December, 2015.  Also, by year's end, will have gathered as many 2015 measurements of sun's elevation as possible, which will show:   1) how high in sky sun is at noon; and 2) where it should be at noon under normal circumstances.  Last but not least, I'm working to create an "analemma" for 2015.

So, stay tuned and cross your fingers for sun here in MO.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on December 30, 2015, 04:12:13 PM
On December 19, 2015, noon CST, I did obtain a new reading at the location of our December 21, 1980 reading, where, as mentioned previously, we had planted three stakes in the ground to denote the sun's shadow on winter solstice, a procedure we did so our builder could orient our house to face due south.   I obtained this new reading on the 19th in the event I could not be two places at once on 2015 solstice, as well as in case of clouds.  As it turned out it was mostly cloudy on December 21 this year, so did not enlist anyone to gather solstice data, so we will settle for the Dec. 19 data.

Interstingly, and maybe even surprisingly, our near-winter-solstice north-south line this year is close to that for 1980 winter solstice.  Because of cloudy weather and personnel shortage, this Dec. 19 reading will be the only reading at this other location for this year.  It tells us several things:
1)  our Dec. 19, 2015 north-south line is slightly clockwise from our 1980 winter solstice line;
2) our Dec. 19, 2015 north-south line is very close to that of 1980 winter solstice;
3) because the difference between north-south lines measured two or three days apart in a given year will be negligible, and because minute errors can creep into data collected in this manner, it is possible that the true north-south lines for winter solstices for 1980 and 2015 are as depicted in my attached photos, or the lines could actually be superimposed on each other, and identical, or somewhere in between.

At this point in time, the difference, if any, between 1980 and 2015 winter solstice north-south lines is probably not nearly as important as the lines we are analyzing nowadays, namely from 2011 through now.  That is our main focus, and I took everyone, including myself, on this tangent just because we had an original line in 1980.

Img. 175 is looking north, along east side of house; white string on ground depicts December 19, 2015 line, while white string draped along side of house from from to back represents winter solstice 1980.  After setting all this up, I realized I didn't need a string for 1980, as the "line" is the east side of the house or a line exactly parallel to the east side of the house.  The short section of white plumbing pipe on the ground is a ground-level representation of the 1980 line, as it is lined up with the string above it.

Img. 176 is a closer shot, in which I tried to align the camera with the 1980 line, so that the 2015 line is fairly obvious.

Img. 177 is looking south, and by looking closely, one can see that the plumbing pipe on ground aligns with the string representing 1980 winter solstice.  And if one looks really closely, one can see where the white string for Dec. 2015 ties to the post on the south end, as well as where it connects to the stake at north end.

Stay tuned for more updates including the analemma in progress, as well as more north-south line readings.

Have a Cautious and More Aware New Year, brothers and sisters, and stay tuned.

Our cardstock drawing has now been updated to incorporate data for Winter Solstice 2015, and is being posted here.  Dsc01140 shows the "bigger picture", while Dsc1141 is a close-up which is actually legible.

Note I had to condense the three north-south lines that all point at position #8, in order to squeeze in the line for December 22, 2015, which is a tiny bit clockwise and very close.  One can see in the bigger picture of it all that winter solstice north-south lines are mostly within a small range, and could possibly be identical.  Not so for our December, 2011 line.  The December 2013 line is in question because it was obtained prior to using the level steel post to cast the sun's shadow.

Also, since our Dec. 19, 2015 line at the 1980 winter solstice site was slightly clockwise from the 1980 line, it is logical that two days later, on Dec. 21, 2015, after moving ever so slightly counterclockwise (as indicated from data gathered), the two lines are either identical or at least closer.

Waiting for more sunny days again, and when that happens, watch for another update.

You are welcome.

Yes, it has become my "day job" because once I got pulled into this "accidental science project", I realized the importance of following this though to wherever it leads (all of us).   Often I think of an analogy of a spinning bucket of water that has been nudged and is wobbling.  If nudged hard enough, it could wobble awhile, and eventually flip over, spilling its contents.

So unless a massive quake or other disaster destroys our internet access, I'll continue to update everyone as often as possible.  Yes, it's way more work than I originally anticipated because I try to get the reading at exactly 12 noon, to the second, and because the string is at the base of the pole, I must stretch the string along the ground, flush with the ground, but level, and pull it taut against the door, cornerstone base, etc., while crouched on my knees on the ground (often muddy), and squinting/facing the sun, and aiming for a perfect alignment of the string inside the shadow of the post, all within a second or two.  That's why I sometimes get into position a minute or two or even five, ahead of time, and take preliminary readings so as to get a feel for where the shadow will fall that day.  And when I'm all bent and hunched over this string, facing the sun,  and kneeling in the mud, and my jeans are too tight, I can hardly breathe!   But still I live.

Didn't mean to write a novelette about it!

We have finally had a few sunny days to give us more data.

Recent observations:
December 17, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" to the right, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 18, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" to the right, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.
December 21, 2015, noon--clouds, but at 12:01 PM, CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" to the right, from "inside corner" of right door jamb.  This means that at
     noon, CST, the north-south line was slightly left of, or counterclockwise from, its location at 12:01, which could place it pointing at the corner, or even slightly
     on the cellar door.
December 22, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed to the right corner of the cornerstone base.

New observations:
December 25, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.75" left of right corner of cornerstone base.
December 28, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.375" left of right corner of cornerstone base.
January 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.875" right of #28.

As we can see by observing our cardstock drawing, our axis of rotation continues to move counterclockwise (aside from a slight waffling from the 17th-18th), and as the north-south line continued to move/point further to the left across the cornerstone base, I have begun measuring from the left corner. 

Pics attached and stay tuned for more....

According to our growing data, Earth's axis of rotation is continuing to gradually move counterclockwise--for now.

Recent observations:

December 25, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.75" left of right corner of cornerstone base.
December 28, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.375" left of right corner of cornerstone base.
January 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.875" right of #28.

New observations:

January 2, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 24.5" right of #28.
January 4, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 22.375" right of #28.
January 5, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 20.75" right of #28.

Marker #28 is the left corner of our cornerstone base, which, FYI, measures 36" across.  Since we have moved approximately 6" in four days, we can see that if our counterclockwise movement continues at the same pace, our north-south line should be pointing in the vicinity of marker #28 in approximately two weeks.   It is 20.75" from current position to the left corner (#28).

BTW, life just got a bit easier after reading my own words posted on Jan. 1, 2016 post of 5:42:59.  I realized how much work it is to gather the data on the length of Sol's shadow across the ground, as the shadow must be level, as well as the surface catching the shadow.  So I have decided to ditch the 10' long steel fascia board trim which was used to catch the shadow, as the piece was wobbly, and easily wobbled out of kilter. 

Easy solution:  measure the length of Sol's shadow at noon, using a different post/pole--one that is only 9" tall.  Details of this will follow.

In the meantime, attached are the two latest cardstock drawings showing where we are.  where we've been, and where we're going.  More updates to follow:

Title: " Earth's Axis has Changed - Time to Measure the Sun Australia, South Africa and Southern Peru"

The comparison of the Earth to a spinning top is wrong.
Apparently a number of people out there are making observations of this nature.

While the analogy to the spinning top isn't completely accurate, neither is the "spinning bucket of water" which I had used recently, however it is good to have something visual to ponder.  Plus the late astronomer, George Abell, stated in his EXPLORATION of the UNIVERSE:
"The gravitational attraction of the sun and moon upon the earth act in such a way as to attempt to change the direction of the earth's axis of rotation, so that it would stand perpendicular to the orbital plane of the earth.  To understand what actually takes place, we must digress for a moment to consider what happens when a similar force acts upon a top or gyroscope." (page 78).

My limited understanding of this is that the reason the Earth does not fall over is that a balance of these forces has been achieved, which results, not in Earth "falling over", but Earth having a 23.44 or 23.5 degree axial tilt to the celestial equator, all of which is also related to the 26,000 year cycle of precession.

But now we are seeing the result of other forces acting on our Earth, and those forces are manifesting in what some call "wobble" or "wobbling" of the Earth's axis of rotation, which could be an east-west wobble, or a north-south wobble, or both.  I probably would not refer to it as a "death wobble", but perhaps a "chaos wobble".

Interestingly, his records extend back many years and he stated he noted the first axial wobble (in so many words)  in 2004, which correlates with those who claim that in 2003 something massive entered our solar system and is continuing to make its way through and eventually out again.

Thanks for this link, Jim, and hopefully more people will gather data from many different points on the planet.

Thanks for the extract from EXPLORATION of the UNIVERSE.  That is one matter that I have not read about.

The spinning Earth does not "fall over" because it is not resting balanced on a solid surface against gravity, as a top is.  The 26,000-year cycle of procession occurs because the Solar System is circling around the common center of gravity of it and a binary partner system.  That is independent of the amount of tilt of the Earth's axis of revolution, although that tilt determines what is seen to be the North Star as the cycle progresses.  The actual wobble that we are experiencing is caused by the interaction of the magnetic fields of Earth and Nibiru, according to zetatalk.com.  The Zetas say that the extreme "climate change", or at least most of it, is caused by that wobble, if I understand their writings correctly.  However, another version is given in http://www.ashtarcommandcrew.net/profiles/blogs/2016-a-mettronic-overview-by-aa-metatron

[start extract]
the primary cause of global warming is the increase in spin of the inner molten core of the earth.
 
The accelerated core spin, increases the mass & temperature of the molten iron-nickel of the core. The heat generated warms the mantle. The higher spin affects the torque ratio between the inner and outer core in the planets centre interior.

The spinning Earth does not "fall over" because it is not resting balanced on a solid surface against gravity, as a top is.  The 26,000-year cycle of procession occurs because the Solar System is circling around the common center of gravity of it and a binary partner system.  That is independent of the amount of tilt of the Earth's axis of revolution, although that tilt determines what is seen to be the North Star as the cycle progresses.  The actual wobble that we are experiencing is caused by the interaction of the magnetic fields of Earth and Nibiru, according to zetatalk.com.  The Zetas say that the extreme "climate change", or at least most of it, is caused by that wobble, if I understand their writings correctly.  However, another version is given in http://www.ashtarcommandcrew.net/profiles/blogs/2016-a-mettronic-overview-by-aa-metatron

[start extract]
the primary cause of global warming is the increase in spin of the inner molten core of the earth.
 
The accelerated core spin, increases the mass & temperature of the molten iron-nickel of the core. The heat generated warms the mantle. The higher spin affects the torque ratio between the inner and outer core in the planets centre interior.
[end extract]
I agree, for now, that the current Earth wobble (aside from the very slight normal wobble that would be seen in a typical year's analemma) is due to the introduction of a new magnetic force, or body/bodies having a magnetic field, into our solar system.

 For a while in the recent past I attributed it, in part, to the gravitational attraction between Earth and one or more bodies, but upon reflection realize that the only result of that new attraction would be that Earth and any new mutually attracting body/bodies would simply move closer to each other as they dance through space.

Regarding the Earth "falling over",  doesn't it seem possible that the magnetic forces causing the east-west wobble, could eventually also cause a north-south wobble, which,  depending on polarity, direction, and proximity, could cause the planet to tilt even further, i.e., greater than 23.5 degrees?  Understandably it is not resting on a surface, but if the axial tilt continued to increase, at some point we might not say it is "falling over" but we might describe it as "tilting over". 

There may be many new forces involved, and merely gathering data that show planetary wobble, says nothing about how many different forces, and from which specific direction they originate. 

While I still often refer to George Abell's EXPLORATION of the UNIVERSE, I have a newer book, UNIVERSE by Kauffman & (another author) which contains much new information about our universe, and which introduced me to a brand new (to me) formula called the "Small Angle Formula" for deriving information about distant objects which subtend very small angles. 

Look for a post in response to Marshall's latest article regarding Helion, as this little equation may help us learn more about Helion.

While some of Earth's warming may be attributed to the wobble, not all of it is.  The data showing atmospheric CO2 levels prior to the Industrial Revolution, and after, are dramatic proof of the exponential increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide.  Because CO2 is "opaque to infrared radiation" it is considered a greenhouse gas, as is methane, and these greenhouse gases have been playing their role very well, and in increasing intensity.  According to some climate scientists, "the clathrate gun has already been fired".

Still we seek knowledge.

"Pole shift", in other words.  Or rather, "crust shift" relative to the restored orientation of the axis. (Again, according to zetatalk)

Ah, this might tie some things together:

" ZetaTalk Interpretation [http://www.zetatalk.com/ning/22ag2015.htm] 8/22/2015: Why have the waters in the northern Pacific warmed up? It is clear that El Nino is related to volcanic activity and earthquakes in Indonesia. We have stated that the roiling of magma due to the approach of Planet X, aka Nibiru, is another factor related to the increase in volcanic activity. El Nino in the past has emerged as a hot spot in Indonesia which travels due to the ocean tides to the East, affecting the weather along the coastlines of North and South America. The current heating of the ocean waters in the northern Pacific is not due to volcanic or earthquake activity, but plate compression which likewise generates heat. N America is being pulled into an extreme bow. "

Still, Earth's axis of rotation is slowly moving counterclockwise, for the most part, and the north pole is continuing to point farther and farther to the left.

Recent observations:
January 2, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 24.5" right of #28.
January 4, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 22.375" right of #28.
January 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 20.75" right of #28.

New observations:
January 10, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.5" right of #28.
January 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 15.75" right of #28.
January 12, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.0" right of #28.

We have a slight "waffle", or so it appears.  But still we always look for the bigger picture.

One can see how "north" is gradually pointing more leftward on our "cornerstone base".  Stay tuned for more observations.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift

For now, Earth's axis of rotation appears to continue to migrate in a counterclockwise manner, with north pointing more leftward.

Recent observations:

January 10, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.5" right of #28.
January 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 15.75" right of #28.
January 12, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.0" right of #28.

New observations:
January 13, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 14.0" right of #28.
January 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13.125" right of #28.
January 18, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right of #28.

Because our north-south line, pointing north, is now pointing at, and moving along, our "cornerstone base" which happens to be 36" long, we could extrapolate when "north" will reach the left corner, #28, assuming its counterclockwise movement continues as is.  With 10" remaining between today's mark and the left edge, #28, we might be there within two weeks, because "north" has moved approximately 10" since January 5.  Time will tell of course.

In the meantime, I continue to work on our 2015 analemma, and wait for sunny days for more readings, such as posted here today, plus plan to update our cardstock soon, so as to begin incorporating 2016 data.  Stay tuned.

Earth's axis of rotation continues to drift, with the north pole moving left, or counterclockwise.

Recent observations:

January 13, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 14.0" right of #28.
January 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13.125" right of #28.
January 18, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right of #28.

New observations:
January 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.375" right of #28.
January 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.75" right of #28.
January 24, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.5" right of #28.

We do seem to be closely paralleling our similar January, 2015 leftward migration of the north pole.  It is time to update our cardstock to show a few more 2016 points, plus publish a bit more on the sun's elevation, as well as the promised analemma, which is taking a bit of time, but is definitely in the works.

Stay tuned for more data....

The net movement, for now, is that the Earth's axis of rotation continues to move counterclockwise, with the north pole gradually pointing more leftward.
Recent observations:
January 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.375" right of #28.
January 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.75" right of #28.
January 24, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.5" right of #28.

New observations:
January 27, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.25" right of #28.
January 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right of #28.
January 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.125" right of #28.

Today's value appears a bit out of step with the leftward movement, so we shall see if it's a quirk or the beginning of reversal of direction we have seen so many times before.

I have updated our cardstock sketching to incorporate our January 24 position of north pole which was thisclose to marker #25, which happens to be 6.0" right of corner #28.  And since the 24th, the north pole is pointing several inches farther leftward, or counterclockwise.  The updated cardstock pics will be the attachment of choice until the next upgrade.

In re-reading this today, I realize a need to clarify something.  When I state "the north pole is pointing several inches farther leftward", I am talking about how it tracks on the immovable objects I use for markers.  Remember that these objects are at various angles to the straight line representing the north-south pole, which in our case is the string that is stretched out from our level pole, through the sun's noon shadow, till that mid-shadow string hits an immovable object, whether it be a cornerstone base, a tree, or a storm cellar door.  Having said all that, I will still reiterate that this wobble we are documenting is considerably more than the normal "Earth wobble" that would be seen and described by a typical analemma.

Speaking of analemma, we will have one up here sometime this year, hopefully before spring.  Until then, stay tuned for more data.

For now, Earth's axis of rotation, as documented here by noting where the north pole points at noon, CST, continues to migrate counterclockwise, or leftward.

Recent observation:

January 27, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.25" right of #28.
January 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right of #28.
January 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.125" right of #28.

New observations:
February 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" right of #28.
February 4, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.875" right of #28.
February 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.625" right of #28.

As you can see, if the current trend continues, Earth's north pole, at noon, CST, will soon be pointing at the corner, marker #28, which is in the same vicinity where last year we "waffled" for about an entire month. 

Time will tell where we are headed, so stay tuned for continued data.

Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on February 11, 2016, 01:25:46 PM
Earth's axis of rotation is still on the move, i.e., its noon north pole continues to point more leftward, or counterclockwise than before. 
Recent observations:

February 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" right of marker #28.
February 4, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.875" right of #28.
February 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.625" right of #28.

New observations:
February 6, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.875" right of #28.
February 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" right of #28.
February 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at #28.

As alluded to last time, we are now smack-dab in the area where the axis/north pole "waffled" for an entire month last year.  As readers recall, "waffling" is the term I use to describe the axial movements before it changes directions, as it has done so many times before in the recent past.

Now, a year later, and after Earth has moved in another cycle around our Sun, there may be some, or many, new forces, attractive and/or repulsive, that are causing this wobble, which is much exaggerated compared to Earth's "normal" wobble as depicted in an analemma. 

Currently data for creating our 2015 analemma is still being assimilated and compiled, so stay tuned for it, as well as for more updates regarding the regular progression or regression of our axis of rotation.

In the attachment, one can easily recognize marker #28 as the left corner of our cornerstone base.

Still our axis of rotation continues to migrate leftward, or in counterclockwise motion, although we are now in that vicinity where last year, we "waffled" for an entire month.  Time will tell, but for now here are recent and most recent data:

Recent observations:
February 6, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.875" right of #28.
February 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" right of #28.
February 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at #28.

New observations:
February 12, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at #28.
February 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 17, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.

It does appear we are slowing to a crawl, as several consecutive days will show no movement, then after a tiny bit of movement, repeat the process of remaining stationary.

The cardstock drawing has one more update to reflect our current position, and photo is coming soon.  Stay tuned for more data.

Steady She goes.   Our axis of rotation isn't waffling as it did last year while pointing in this same direction--it is holding steady.  In fact, I believe this current situation is a record for "these times", because as long as I've been keeping these records, I've never encountered such steady-ness.  We could assume that on the 16th and 19th, the reading would have been the same, which would make seven consecutive days of "holding steady".  But we won't assume that, so can state that five out of the past seven days have shown the same reading.

Recent observations:
February 12, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at #28.
February 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 17, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.

New observations:
February 18, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.

I will post the latest updated cardstock pic ASAP but in the meantime this almost-new pic has about everything except the notation about February, 2016 north-south lines.

Stay tuned for more data.

Our axis of rotation is for now nearly stable.  Yesterday saw the first noticeable bit of sideways movement in several weeks.

Recent observations:
February 12, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at #28.
February 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 17, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 18, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.

New observations:
February 26, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.50" left of #28.

Our axis has nudged a bit further leftward for now, recalling that last year when it was pointing in this same direction,  it "waffled" or basically rocked back and forth for an entire month before changing directions. 

I am still working on the 2015 analemma, BTW.

Stay tuned for more data and an eventual updated drawing.

As we near spring equinox, we (Earth's axis of rotation) seem to be in a Sargasso-Sea-like condition, as we were in 2015 in the same time period. 

Recent observation:
February 26, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.
February 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.50" left of #28.

New observations:
March 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner, marker #28.
March 6, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner, marker #28.
March 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner, marker #28.

One could say we are now in, or entering,  a "slow wobble", a wobble being that phenomenon that occurs prior to a change of direction at which the pole(s) point.  (Although I observe where the north-south line points north,  and describe what is happening with its movement, a similar phenomenon is occuring for those in the Southern Hemisphere, so I'm always wishing to see someone from below the Equator reporting on this topic.)

A new cardstock photo is attached, and one can see our current cardstock drawing is getting bedraggled, but for now it does tell a story.  Also, on a related note, I am much closer to publishing a bit on our 2015 analemma.

OK, stay tuned for more data.

A few more observations are below, which show we are how leaning to the right or moving clockwise.  Because I have been working on the 2015 analemma, I can see the picture more clearly, and hope to publish it this month.  It is just like connecting dots, which, when connected, create a picture.  After inserting the "turnaround" points, and some others, a fairly good approximation of the analemma is presenting itself, and all it needs now is for the remaining "dots" to be inserted.    For now:
Recent observations:
March 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner, marker #28.
March 6, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner, marker #28.
March 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner, marker #28.

New observations:
March 14, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right of corner marker #28.
March 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right of corner marker #28.
March 16, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" right of corner marker #28.

We "turned around" at the same approximate time and place as last year, so we have a bit of consistency, but you will see in the 2015 analemma there is some marked discrepancies between 2015 and times past.

Stay tuned for more data.

Because of clouds on the day of our Spring Equinox, the 20th, we missed getting an exact reading, but with a reading three days prior, and the two days immediately after, we have a good idea of data for equinox.

Recent observations:
March 14, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right of corner marker #28.
March 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right of corner marker #28.

March 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.875" right of corner marker #28.
March 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right of corner marker #28.

Finally an analemma, plotted from the data I gathered during 2015, for this latitude of 37.55 deg. N, 90.992 deg. W. 

An analemma expert I am not, as this creation was hand plotted on graph paper using pencil, eraser, and ball point pen, so don't expect a professional looking and polished piece of artwork.  Along with mine, I found a couple others online, for comparison.  Plus in an earlier post, Jim Farmer posted an analemma as part of a related discussion.

One thing that seems to jump out is that the points at winter solstice and at summer solstice do not "line up".  It is true I could have "tilted" the figure-eight so as to make those two points align with each other, but in real life they do not, as evidenced by the analemma, but more importantly by the point where the noon sun strikes an immovable object at noon on those days.

It is my understanding that in normal circumstances the winter solstice and summer solstice should be in alignment, as those are the two dates one would use in attempting to locate true north, or as close as possible--or true south if need be. 

There are two aspects of the analemma:  the horizontal, and the vertical.  The vertical aspect, as designated by numbers in the side margins, represent degrees above the horizon where the sun is seen, whereas the horizontal deviation from the centrally located "zero point" is helps depict our natural "wobble".

Some of the movement traced by this analemma is normal, and due to Earth's natural wobble.  But if I understand correctly, winter solstice and summer solstice should be vertically aligned, but they were not in 2015, and were approximately 4-6 degrees apart in the east-west direction.  Because of the different types of data I've collected, and lack of totally computer-generated precision, I can only say "approximately 4-6 degrees" is what separated the two 2015 solstices.

The sun's elevation will be different for different parts of the planet, thus this analemma is specific for the locale for which it was plotted.  I am gathering data for the 2016 analemma and my experience with this one will allow me to craft a more accurate drawing next year, by having learned where errors can creep in and where to make improvements. 

I will have a bit more to post on this subject, in particular regarding the sun's elevation at both solstices.  Also, in one or more earlier posts, I erred when I stated that there are four dates which will align perfectly in the north-south line/central axis, the two solstices and the two equinoxes, but the two equinoxes are not normally aligned at all.  My mistake!  But the solstices should be aligned, and the only difference should be the elevation, whereas at summer solstice, the sun should be high in the sky for most locations, and at winter solstice, very low in sky.

Last but not least, in addition to the east-west deviation between winter and summer solstices, there has been a similar east-west deviation between solstices of different years recently, and that does not ordinarily occur.  Well, it's true that due to precession that approximately 22,000-26,000 year cycle in which the poles move in a complete circle (reminiscent of a spinning, listing gyroscope), deviation occurs, but we are talking about year to year in our observations in "human time".  Thus in our observations from year to year, we should see the sun pointing, at noon, at the same point on winter and summer solstices.  That is not what I've been recording since December, 2011.

Stay tuned for more data, and corrections if needed.

VERY interesting scientific paper on the results in the Earth’s pole shift as a result of water distribution in the polar ice sheets:

Changes in Land Water Storage and Melting Ice Sheets Drive Polar Motion

http://www.aaas.org/news/changes-land-water-storage-and-melting-ice-sheets-drive-polar-motion

Changes in terrestrial water storage, along with the melting of polar ice sheets, are driving changes in Earth's polar motion, researchers report. The findings, which appear in the 8 April issue of Science Advances, help explain why there has been a dramatic eastward shift in the general drift direction of Earth's spin axis since the year 2000.

"With our new insight into the relationship between land water storage and polar position we can now place new bounds on how much ice sheets and wet or dry epochs changed during the entire 20th century," said Erik Ivins, a senior research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and co-author of the study.

The Earth is spinning from west to east (making one cycle each day) and the axis about which Earth spins is called Earth's spin axis. Because the spin axis crosses Earth's surface at two points, or rotational poles, scientists call the motion of Earth's spin axis "polar motion."

VERY interesting scientific paper on the results in the Earth’s pole shift as a result of water distribution in the polar ice sheets:

Changes in Land Water Storage and Melting Ice Sheets Drive Polar Motion

http://www.aaas.org/news/changes-land-water-storage-and-melting-ice-sheets-drive-polar-motion

Changes in terrestrial water storage, along with the melting of polar ice sheets, are driving changes in Earth's polar motion, researchers report. The findings, which appear in the 8 April issue of Science Advances, help explain why there has been a dramatic eastward shift in the general drift direction of Earth's spin axis since the year 2000.

"With our new insight into the relationship between land water storage and polar position we can now place new bounds on how much ice sheets and wet or dry epochs changed during the entire 20th century," said Erik Ivins, a senior research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and co-author of the study.

The Earth is spinning from west to east (making one cycle each day) and the axis about which Earth spins is called Earth's spin axis. Because the spin axis crosses Earth's surface at two points, or rotational poles, scientists call the motion of Earth's spin axis "polar motion."

Agreed, extremely interesting, and for me at least, it shows that there may be a number of total reasons why Polar Motion is changing, including melting ice sheets, land-water storage, and who knows what else, particularly since a lot has changed since around the year 2000.

Finally a few more readings; in spite of a number of recent sunny days, I could not be at the "test site", thus missed good information.

Recent observations:
March 17, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" right of corner marker #28.
March 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.875" right of corner marker #28.
March 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right of corner marker #28.

New observations:
March 25, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.625" right of corner marker #28.
March 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.375" right of corner marker #28.
April 4, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.0" right of corner marker #28.
April 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.75" right of corner marker #28.

Now that I've studied the analemma, and its meanings, I realize much of the day-to-day "wobble" I/we've been seeing is part of the normal "Earth wobble".  However, what the data shows is that there are some serious discrepancies from one year to the next, and that the differences within a given year appear less important than the differences from one year to the next.  Still, the 2015 analemma by itself is skewed a bit and gives the appearance of a "listing Earth".  It is worth mentioning that the so-called normal wobble appears very noticeable to a person who tracks the sun's position throughout a given year.

I plan to write a bit of an update on our 2015 analemma, as it's "just a little ol' figure-eight" to some, but a lot of information is condensed into that figure-eight, and it is worthy of a bit of discussion.  Perhaps a reader can enlighten me on a few points.

Stay tuned for more data.

Finally a few more readings, gotten in between farm chores and cloudy days.
Recent observations:

April 23, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.125" left of right corner of cornerstone base.
April 25, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.0 " left of right corner of cornerstone base.
May 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at right corner of cornerstone base.

New observations:
May 5, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2" left of #4 marker on cellar door,  or about 4.75" left of right edge of cellar door.
May 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed, on cellar door, 9.25" left of right edge of door (also approx. equal to right edge of cornerstone base).
May 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4" left of right edge of cellar door.
May 14, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.25" left of right edge of cellar door, and almost equal to right edge of cornerstone base,.

It is safe to say we are "waffling" now, but having the 2015 analemma, we can understand this so-called waffling a bit better.

I am also recording the sun's elevation as often as possible, and hope to create a graph showing both 2015 and 2016 elevation data,  with 2016 overlaid on that of 2015.  Stay tuned.

Stay tuned for more data.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on May 23, 2016, 05:20:42 PM
As we continue "waffling", which we now know is what seems to happen as Earth transitions from lengthening days to summer solstice, and afterwards shortening days.  But this waffling does not exactly coincide with solstice. 

One question that remains is whether this waffling always occurs, or did it begin at some point in the recent past when our unusual, and not-so-normal, wobble began, a wobble that so far seems to be discernible (by the methods reported here) from year to year, but not necessarily within a given year; for example think of the difference in the north-south line orientation between December, 2011 and December, 2012.

For now,
recent observations:
May 5, 2015, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2" left of #4 marker on cellar door,  or about 4.75" left of right edge of cellar door.
May 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed, on cellar door, 9.25" left of right edge of door (also approx. equal to right edge of cornerstone base).
May 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4" left of right edge of cellar door.
May 14, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.25" left of right edge of cellar door, and almost equal to right edge of cornerstone base.

new observations:
May 19, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 32" right of marker #28.
May 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at right corner of cornerstone base.
May 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at right corner of cornerstone base.
May 23, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 33.5" right of marker #28.

As we have seen from our 2015 analemma, this "waffling" can be understood by viewing the middle portion of the figure-eight analemma.  It shows how prior to crossing the "center cross-point" of the analemma, the sun can be east (or west) of the analemma's vertical axis, but after crossing this center point, Sol can be seen to the west (or east) of the axis, for example.

Stay tuned for more readings, and in particular our summer solstice reading which, along with winter solstice, tells us much.

June 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1" left of marker #28.

Our current cardstock drawing is becoming too crowded with data and lines, as I did cram in our new summer solstice readings from the 20th, but this is the last time we'll need to use this drawing and any future representations will be on a new drawing. 

The new drawing should remain much less cluttered, as we have a very valid reason:  we now have three successive summer solstice readings and it will be obvious from examining the drawing, that the direction the sun points in the Northern Hemisphere on Summer Solstice has changed slightly for three consecutive years, and appears to be slowly moving east; similar can be said of Winter Solstice readings, in that they are changing.

Importantly, both summer and winter solstice readings should coincide, i.e., the sun should point in the same direction at winter solstice, as it did during summer solstice.

Stay tuned for more data, as well as updated cardstock drawing.

The Sun Is Rising North of East – too Far North!

http://beforeitsnews.com/space/2016/06/the-sun-is-rising-north-of-east-too-far-north-2500298.html

The footage was taken in Philadelphia, but I actually noticed that also here in Australia, opposite to Philadelphia. The sun is closer to the Northern horizon than it has been.

It’s been cold, early in our winter months. -4° in June rather than at end of July or early August. Our high temps are also lower, 10° or 11° rather than in the teens. Due to the influence of a larger Antarctic Ice Cap, our coldest weather usually takes place towards the end of Winter, not at the beginning of it like this year.

Australia is not that far off being antipode to Northeastern United States. The actual antipode is in the Indian Ocean and a bit lower than Australia.

It appears we are waffling, but from our previous work, we now know that is a normal phenomenon, given our axial tilt and other factors.

I am still watching the sun's angle above the horizon and so far it is close to that of 2015, although not equal.  It is possible that with a leap year last year there may be a bit of data that appears "off" but is not.  Time will tell, and sometime this year, I'll post something on the sun's angle.  In the meantime, stay tuned for the updated cardstock drawing of our site, showing the various locations of our north-south line on solstices, all of which should be aligned, but are not.  Most are only close.

July 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.0" left of marker #28.

July 18, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.25" left of marker #28.

Not a lot of apparent "action" for now, but maybe that's a good thing!

Since we have a new cardstock drawing of the actual site where these data are collected, and our new depiction shows only the summer and winter solstice readings, most of our north-south lines won't show (on this newest cardstock).  Just for the record, marker #28, for those who don't remember, or did not look back at previous posts, is the left front corner of our cornerstone base.

Stay tuned for an explanation of this new depiction.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on July 19, 2016, 06:16:41 PM
The north-south lines shown in this new drawing are all obtained from summer or winter solstices in Black, MO, at exactly noon, Central Standard Time.

The most important aspect of this entire depiction is that because each of these lines emanating from the solar pole mount represents a solstice reading, then all lines should be superimposed on the first.  In other words, in normal times, there would appear just one line and that one line would show where north and south are on solstice-winter or summer.  It is easy to see we are not in normal times.

We can see that on December 22, 2011 the north-south line would be far west of all future readings (something I would have no way of knowing at the time of gathering the data).  Then one year later on December 21, 2012, the line appeared about 45 degrees eastward or to the right.    And yes, I agree, it seems preposterous, but I remember so clearly that day, staring in disbelief and at the same time, scrambling to find new sticks to hammer in the ground.  (I did later read that someone else had posted somewhere ?David Icke? about having seen a 45 degree difference, but I never had time to search for the post).

Note that because of clouds I could not get reading for 2014 winter solstice, but did on the 17th and 25th, and one can see that by extrapolating where our 2014 winter solstice would be, that the 2014 and 2015 winter solstice lines were most likely identical.

Note the three most recent summer solstice readings are in close proximity, with each successive year landing slightly eastward of the year prior.
Stay tuned for more data....
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on July 28, 2016, 05:36:32 PM
More thoughts on where, in normal times, our north-south line would fall.  In studying the most recent cardstock drawing, it dawned on me that the most likely scenario is that in past normal times, our north-south line was co-incident with our 2013, 2014 and 2015 lines.  (I deduced the 2013 line was probably also in that same area as that of 2014 and 2015 after studying my earlier depiction and pictures of the "strings and sticks" representing solstices for 2011, 2012 and 2013.)

One possible scenario is a massive, "imaginary" object or objects, having a magnetic field, entering our solar system.   Next our imaginary object approaches Earth (2011), then passes us (2012),  then moves behind the sun (2013, 2014, 2015), during which time, our more massive sun would shield Earth from the magnetics of said  massive object allowing Earth to move back into its normal, or almost normal, position.

The above scenario could mean that for example the 2010 (and years prior) north-south winter solstice lines were co-incident with those later lines of  winter solstice 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Thus after 2010, on 2011 winter solstice, Earth's magnetic north was pushed or pulled westward from normal by about 22-23 degrees due to new, external magnetic forces.  Then by winter solstice 2012, we see Earth's magnetic north was pulled or pushed eastward, seemingly by about 45 degrees, but relative to its normal position, only about 22-23 degrees eastward.

Hopefully this doesn't come across as gibberish, but this 45 degree difference between 2011 and 2012 winter solstice line orientations is always in the back of my mind and this is my latest guesstimation of where we stand.  Stay tuned.

July 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5" left of marker #28.
July 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6" left of marker #28.

This is what we have called "waffling" in times past, so maybe we'll just continue the tradition until someone tells us to stop! 

Am thinking in spite of having created the new cardstock showing only solstice readings, I will have to resurrect the last cardstock, in spite of its being filled to the brim with lines, dates and whatnot.  It does give the viewer an idea of what sort of pattern we are seeing, if any, between solstices.

Notice that all of the readings listed above fall on the left side of the cornerstone, to the left of the June, 2014 summer solstice reading.  Stay tuned for more.

While events around the planet don't seem so placid, right now our Earth axis orientation seems to be closely matching that of 2015.  For now.

August 3, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" left of marker #28.
August 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at marker #28.

We can say we have stopped our "waffling" and our north-south line is slowly moving eastward, just as it did in 2015.   As we move in time farther away from summer solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere, daylight hours shorten and the sun's apparent elevation decreases.  As mentioned previously, I am documenting the sun's elevation for later inclusion in the 2016 analemma.  In the meantime, stay tuned for more data.

August 24, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13.25" right of marker #28.
September 2, 2016, noon, CST, north-south line pointed 25.5" right of marker #28.

So, we appear to be basically tracking last year's path, for a relatively stable-appearing orbit.  By equinox we will know if three of the four landmark solstice and equinox dates show this consistency.  Calm before the storm?

Stay tuned for more data.

Only a week away from autumnal equinox and we appear to be neatly tracking in our 2015 footsteps.

Recent observations:
August 19, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right of marker #28.
August 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.625" right of marker #28.
August 24, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13.25" right of marker #28.
September 2, 2016, noon, CST, north-south line pointed 25.5" right of marker #28.

New observations:
September 3, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 28" right of marker #28.
September 4, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.875" right of marker #28.
September 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 29.5" right of marker #28.
September 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 35" right of marker #28.
September 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at #4 on the cellar door.
September 12, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at #4 on the cellar door.
September 13, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at the "inside corner" where right side of door meets left side of right door jamb.

Although my records show current planetary stability, i.e., tracking in the path of our 2015 readings, mention should be made of this:   There are those who state that there is a daily wobble, and it may be true; however the records I am keeping would be of little help in demonstrating that phenomenon.  So if one wants to follow that, it would be helpful, as those records, along with these records, paint a slightly bigger picture than either alone.

Also I realize that soon I'll need to resurrect the cardstock that is loaded with lines, angles and other drawings going in all directions, because we will want to show consecutive fall equinox readings, among other things.  Stay tuned for more....

The past week or so I've gotten fewer readings than possible due to having lost my watch, the one that always remains at Central Standard Time, and besides, it is hubby's watch--the second one I've misplaced.  So each time I want to get a reading now, I must promise to return watch #3 immediately afterwards; but help is on the way.  Amazon should be sending my very own $14 watch any day now!

Recent observations:
September 3, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 28" right of marker #28.
September 4, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.875" right of marker #28.
September 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 29.5" right of marker #28.
September 7, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 35" right of marker #28.
September 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at #4 on the cellar door.
September 12, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at #4 on the cellar door.
September 13, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at the "inside corner" where right side of door meets left side of right door jamb.

New observations:
September 17, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at right side of right door frame.
September 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at outside corner of right door jamb.
September 23, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed (1" right of #3) 11" right of right door frame.
September 24, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right of right door frame.
September 26, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10" right of right door frame, at #3.
September 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 14.5" right of right door frame.

In general we are seeing movement of Sol's noon shadow to the right, with an occasional exception, for example, when there was a "stutter" between the 23rd and 24th, which could be observer error.  But the overall progress is to the right or clockwise.  And I continue to note the length of the Sun's shadow, useful in later calculations.

In addition to the above new data, I'm posting an update photo of our much-used cardstock drawing with too many lines and angles to discern anything at a glance, but with a bit of study, it is still very useful.  The only update in it relates to Fall or Autumn Equinox, which this year fell on September 22.  Although I did not get a reading on the exact day, I did get one two days prior, and one the day immediately after, and can easily extrapolate where the sun's shadow was or would have been on the 22nd, and it does line up with the two previous years of 2014 and 2015.  I rarely extrapolate any dates or lines, but the mass of the Earth dictates that the north-south line for that day could not have been on either side of the lines for the 20th or 23rd.

Stay tuned for more data and check out the updated pic.

Is Our Sun's Mysterious 6-Degree Tilt Linked to A Huge 9th Planet?


“It's such a deep-rooted mystery and so difficult to explain
that people just don't talk about it.”


- Michael Brown, Ph.D., Prof. of Planetary Astronomy, Caltech


https://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=2470&category=Science

Our sun is the yellow sphere. Planet orbits are depicted as
gravitationally interacting rings. Orbit 9 depicts the great elliptical path
of what Prof. Michael Brown, Ph.D., Caltech, thinks is a gaseous 9th planet
billions of miles from the sun in the Oort cloud that is 10 times the mass of our Earth.

Why such a huge planet would have such an elliptical orbit is still unknown. Speculation is
that a passing star at the time the solar system formed might have pulled
Planet 9 into the strange orbit. Graphic by Michael Brown & Konstantin Batygin 2016.

October 22, 2016 Pasadena, California - Earlier this year in January 2016, planetary astronomers Michael Brown, Ph.D., at the California Inst. of Technology (Caltech) and his colleagues in Hawaii and Yale University [see Earthfiles report link below] reported they have found gravitational evidence of a gaseous 9th planet far out in this solar system's Oort cloud that is 10 times the mass of Earth. But no one has yet seen it physically, even after infra red searches.

Well not that they are telling us about!!

Elizabeth Bailey and Prof. Batygin explained in an October 19, 2016, Caltech press release: “Because Planet Nine is so massive and has an orbit tilted compared to the other planets, the solar system has no choice but to slowly twist out of alignment. ...the sun is staying put in its fixed reference frame, but it's the planetary orbits that are being tilted ...so Planet Nine has tilted the entire disk of the solar system by 6 degrees and because we live on that disk, to us it looks like the sun is tilted. But it's actually the other way around.”

Another mystery is why would such a huge gaseous planet have such a strange, far out elliptical orbit around our sun. Speculation is that a passing star at the time the solar system formed might have pulled Planet 9 into the strange orbit.

A few more observations are here, in spite of my unfortunate luck with watches, the first two I lost, then after buying a brand new replacement, I accidentally put it through washer and dryer.  So for now I'm lugging a large clock around at mid-day!
Recent observations:
September 17, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at right side of right door frame.
September 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed at outside corner of right door jamb.
September 23, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed (1" right of #3) 11" right of right door frame.
September 24, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right of right door frame.
September 26, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10" right of right door frame, at #3.
September 28, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 14.5" right of right door frame.

New observations:
October 6, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3" right on Add-on-board (AOB).
October 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3" right on AOB.
October 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" right on AOB.
October 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right on AOB.
October 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right on AOB.

Because I missed the days between the 11th and 21st, we have no idea if our line wandered to the right a bit as it has in the past, although not much.  This is the time slot in which the analemma will show the widest separation between the near vertical legs representing the apparent path of the sun, when plotted to show a "figure-eight" of sorts.

Still collecting length of Sol's shadow at noon, in order to determine the sun's apparent elevation, which will be posted later.

I did order a new watch and wait anxiously for its arrival, and maybe this one should be worn around the neck.

Thinking out loud here, but wondering how an astronomer knows  or believes the above-mentioned planet to be gaseous?  Especially in view of not having any photographs, spectrographs, IR, or much of anything yet except evidence of gravitational effects that are affecting our solar system.  As time moves along, we'll probably get many more surprises from Bailey, Batygin and Brown.

And again, I hate to be so nit-pickey, but there is another problem with what they are saying.  What they are telling us is that the entire slate of planets in our solar system is tilted 6 degrees, which makes it seem to us that it is actually the sun that is tilted 6 degrees.

 OK, brothers and sisters, please follow me....if all the planets in our solar system were in an imaginary "disc of planets" that is tilted 6 degrees from our previous position, but all the stars are still where they were, then wouldn't the stars appear out of place?  In picturing this all in my mind, it seems the stars should  appear to be 6 degrees "off".

Last but not least, in my measuring the sun's shadow, then using trigonometry to calculate the angle of the sun above the horizon, it appears to me that we are not tilted 6 degrees to the north or south of where we should be, nor does the sun appear to be tilted 6 degrees north or south of where it should be.  Now it is true that I, and others, have documented east/west or west/east tilts from time to time, but if I read the blurb/article correctly the 6 degree tilt is supposed to be a north-south tilt.

I have sun shadow length data for 2016 to add to that of previous years, but truthfully I have not analyzed it carefully yet, so it is possible I'm missing something.  Thanks, everyone, for letting me blather on.

Finally I have a brand new watch and no longer need to lug around a huge clock around mid-day.  As mentioned previously, I regularly co-ordinate my watch with time.is to make certain it is accurate, or that if 5 seconds fast, for example, I am aware of that.

Recent observations:
October 6, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3" right on Add-on-board (AOB).
October 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3" right on AOB.
October 11, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" right on AOB.
October 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right on AOB.
October 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right on AOB.

New observations:
October 23, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" right on AOB.
October 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on AOB.
October 31, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.75" right on AOB.
November 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.625" right on AOB.
November 4, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" right on AOB.

There seems to be a bit of waffling for now, but it is minor, and is also possibly data gathering error.  This is the time of year when the sun's shadow is dramatically lengthening daily and as much as some of us don't enjoy short winter days, we're headed there anyway!

Stay tuned for more data folks.

Inuit Elders Issue Official Warning To NASA 'The Earth Has Shifted'
Indigenous people beg NASA to Warn The World

http://www.neonnettle.com/sphere/375-inuit-elders-issue-official-warning-to-nasa-the-earth-has-shifted-

he Inuit elders, otherwise known as the indigenous people of the arctic regions of Canada, have issued NASA, and the world, a warning that the earth has 'tilted' or 'wobbled'. The indigenous people are now maintaining that the sun no longer rises were it used to and that the days warm up quicker.

Indianlife.org reports: The earth has shifted, tilted or as they put it, "wobbled" to the north and they all agree "Their sky has changed!"

The elders maintain the Sun doesn't rise where it used to, they have longer daylight to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before. The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the same thing, their sky has changed.



The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic.

The elders all agree, they believe the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted to the North.

In an article in The Big Wobble Almanac, and in a video, we see some of the extreme weather events being attributed to this "wobble."

In the article, it states that NASA scientists and experts are "worried" by the information the Inuit Elders are providing for them.

The Inuits are indigenous people that inhabit the arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland and throughout history their very lives have been dependent on being able to correctly forecast weather.... and they are warning NASA and the world that global warming isn't the cause of what we are seeing with extreme weather, earthquakes and other events.

Thanks for posting this.  The video, accessed by scrolling down near end of article, has been posted on yowusa several times over the past few years, and thus was made a few years ago, so I wonder if the Inuits are now coming forward AGAIN, but this time by appealing to NASA.  Who knows?

Back when I saw that video I searched and finally contacted the videomaker, Zachariah Kunuk (sp), and although he didn't answer directly, he must have forwarded my e to some university professor, as that is who answered me.  I could not determine the gender of said professor, via his/her name, but s/he did say, among other things, "we read your letter with enthusiasm".  I took that as meaning they know more than they will admit publicly.

One additional note/correction on the videomaker.  His name is Zacharias Kunuk, and I accidentally learned that the other night while viewing a wonderful Netflix video called Hollywood Injuns.  In this documentary about behind-the-scenes info. on Hollywood's use of "Indians" or "Natives", one of the interviewees was Zacharias Kunuk, who has helped clarify the true role and nature of our Native peoples, in history, and modern day life.  This is off-topic, but I needed to correct his name, and any future posts about Mr. Kunuk will be in the appropriate section.

Many sunny days lately, so we're gathering a bit of data.
Recent observations:

New observations:

November 13, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.375" right on AOB.
November 14, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.875" right on AOB.

The north-south line appears to be moving quite slowly and "stuttering" in the process.  The one thing that is not stuttering is the increasing length of the sun's shadow at noon.  It can be a sort of downer, mentally, but I just tell myself that in "X" number of weeks, the days will be growing longer.  That is about five weeks away!

The image I'm posting here has been around a while, and you can see that our north-south line is hovering on the far right in the scene shown in IMG301.   Stay tuned for more data, including the 2016 analemma, which could be identical or nearly so, to the one for 2015.

We are rapidly approaching Winter Solstice, and of course the shortest day of the year--a reason to celebrate, because then the days grow in length, meaning more sunlight each day, and OMG, what a wonderful thing--to enjoy days of more and more sun!

Recent observations:

November 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.5" right on AOB.
December 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.75" right on concrete.
December 2, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.875" right on concrete.

We are approaching the same area we reached in 2015, that is, our north-south line is moving in such a direction that it just might be lined up exactly with that of our 2015 Winter Solstice.  If so, we are in a period of stability.  So we can count our blessings for now.  Am still gathering data on the noon sun shadow length which will tell us the apparent elevation of Sol, so we can compare the result with the projected and predicted elevation, i.e., where it should be, and would normally be found.

Attached are two pics, and by solstice time, there should be an updated "solstice cardstock".

'Earth Has Shifted' Inuit Elder Warning Comes Back To Haunt Us As Something Big Is Happening Along The Ring of Fire!

allnewspipeline.com/Something_Strange_Going_On_At_The_Ring_Of_Fire.php

In December of 2014, the Inuit Elders issued a warning to NASA and the world, a warning that could very well explain the extreme weather and increasing activity being seen on the Ring of Fire today as yet another large magnitude, 7.9 earthquake, and subsequent Tsunami warning hits Papua New Guinea just this morning. Papua New Guinea sits on the Pacific Ocean's Ring of Fire.

FLASHBACK - INUIT ELDERS WARNING: THE EARTH HAS 'WOBBLED' AND 'THEIR SKY HAS CHANGED'

    The Inuits are indigenous people that inhabit the arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland and throughout history their very lives have been dependent on being able to correctly forecast weather.... and they are warning NASA and the world that global warming isn't the cause of what we are seeing with extreme weather, earthquakes and other events.


STRANGE VIBRATIONS, INCREASING INTENSITY OF EQ'S AND GIGANTIC HOLE FOUND IN OCEAN FLOOR

Fast forward to present day and we note that since that warning was issued, there have been a number of extreme weather events, and an astounding number of active volcanoes noted, as well as an increase in frequency and intensity of large magnitude earthquakes all along the Ring of Fire.


As Stefan Stanford reported on December 10, 2016, hours before the massive Solomon Islands earthquake struck, there was a strange and mysterious vibration detected on seismographs all across the planet, which had the whole planet "ringing like a bell." As of yet, there is still no explanation as to what it was.

On December 15, 2016, it was reported that a gigantic hole in the ocean floor near Australia, approximately 60,000 square kilometres and is seven kilometres deep, could "cause catastrophic natural disasters," with the Sun UK describing them as "apocalyptic earthquakes and tsunamis." According to the Daily Mail "Geologists have for the first time seen and documented the Banda Detachment fault in eastern Indonesia," which is part of the Ring of Fire.

Taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, using a world map, from December 17, 2016, we see exactly how much seismic activity is happening in real time, along the Ring of Fire.

BOTTOM LINE

The Inuit elders provided warnings to NASA and to the world, warnings which had officials concerned, and since then we have seen disturbing reports as more and more scientists continue to warn of the "big one," referring a mega-quake and catastrophic events, which will not only include earthquakes and tsunamis, but volcanic activity along the Ring of Fire as well.

For example, just days ago it was reported that "3 million cubic meters of lava are ready to blow in the air at Popocatepetl," which according to Volcano Discovery, is part of the Rng of Fire as well.

Something big is happening along the Ring of Fire.

Fortunately we are slated to have sunny days through at least Winter Solstice, Wednesday, December 21, 2016, so cross our collective fingers.

Recent observations:
November 15, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.25" right on AOB.
November 16, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" right on AOB.
November 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.25" right on AOB.
November 21, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.5" right on AOB.
December 1, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.75" right on concrete.
December 2, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.875" right on concrete.

New observations:
December 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on concrete.
December 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ outside corner of right door jamb.
December 9, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.625" right on right door jamb.
December 18, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cornerstone base.

We are very close to solstice, and we are also in the vicinity of where our winter solstice lines have been for 2014 and 2015.  Stay tuned for more data and an updated cardstock or two.  In the meantime, one can see from the attached pic where lines fall "on concrete" or "on the cornerstone base".

One can also note that on three consecutive Autumn Equinox dates (2014, 2015, 2016), our north-south lines are identical.  We are in a period of stability, sometimes known as the calm before the storm.

Finally 2016 Winter Solstice has come and gone, daylight hours are lengthening, and sun-lovers are happier.


FINALLY, we have comparison north-south lines for the winter solstice lines for the years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
  It was a long time coming, and for the 2013 line, I refer the reader to post #9 in which the second picture shows my hand-drawn depiction of those "sticks in the ground" that had to finally be removed from the ground in order to install the steel pole.  One can see from post #9 that December, 2013 is about halfway between Dec., 2011 and Dec., 2012, putting it smack dab in line with 2014, 2015, 2016 winter solstices.

In a nutshell, we see the 2011 winter solstice line points considerably farther west than any line of the 2012-2016 years.  Further, the 2012 winter solstice line points considerably farther east than any other winter solstice line.  (Summer solstice 2013 is really "out there".)

Then, interestingly, winter solstice 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 are all aligned with each other.  So if we could zoom backward out into outer space and then watch a time-lapse reply of this entire time period, we might see a massive object or objects enter the solar system sometime prior to or near 2011, exerting some force(s) in 2011, whether pushing or pulling we do not know, on the Earth's magnetic field, causing a skewing of Earth's poles in one direction, during the approach, and then a year later in December, 2012, a skewing of Earth's poles in an opposite direction, as the massive body/bodies affect Earth's poles in an opposite manner, after having moved from the "approach" position to the "receding" position.

And then if we were still viewing this time-lapse reply after the 2011-2012 period, we would see that the massive body/bodies have already entered the solar system, and moved way beyond our Sun in its own very oblique orbit, but also in the vicinity of perihelion.   Perihelion for the massive body/bodies, puts them far on the opposite side of the Sun from Earth.  For now.

Disc01167.JPG shows what I have described above, and I titled it "Winter Solstice Summary 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016".

Then DSC01165.JPG has been updated to indicate the sum total of solstice readings.  At first glance, it appears there is a discrepancy in the winter solstice readings of 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, but notice that in 2014 cloudy days exactly before, on, and after winter solstice prevented getting an exact reading, but it is obvious that the line between the 25th and 17th of 2014 would fall right in line with the others.  And I labeled the 2013 line as being on the same line as Dec. 25, 2014 solely due to space constraints.  It is obvious now that these four winter solstice lines were aligned.

Another bit of data is relevant when discussing where exactly Earth's axis of rotation and North and South Poles are in relation to Sol, our sun.  For this discussion, I can only talk about the years 2011 through 2016 because that is all we have in real data.

As mentioned in one or more earlier posts, the method of determining the correct angle of the sun above our horizon at Winter Solstice is this:
add your latitude (in this case mine--37.55 deg. N) to the degrees of tilt of Earth's axis of rotation, which is 23.5 deg. above the ecliptic.  We have 23.5 + 37.55 to give us 61.05 degrees.  Now subtract that total from 90 degrees, to yield 28.95 degrees, which should be the angle of the sun above the horizon on winter solstice at noon.

Now we measure to determine if we are where we should be.  By measuring the Winter Solstice sun's shadow ("x") against a level pole of known height ("y"), and finding the value of (y/x), we have in "y/x" the tangent of the angle opposite our right angle.  Then, armed with this tan alpha, we look in trig tables for the tangent value that matches or closely matches ours, and in doing so, we find our angle, "alpha" as we sometimes call it.

The 2016 Winter Solstice noon sun angle for this location turns out to be 28.4 degrees, which considering our primitive measuring tools, is close enough to the 28.95, that we can say there is stability in our north-south direction.

Now there appear to be two problems with this assumption.  The Inuits have stated (IIRC) that the sun is "higher in the sky" than it used to be, and that it rises and/or sets at locations different from days of old.  Plus my own observations are that at 5 PM on winter solstice decades ago, it was dark.  In fact it was dark before 5 PM.  One possible explanation is that tilting of the Earth's axis in the east-west or west-east direction can explain the sun appearing "higher" in the sky, as well as setting later than normal around winter solstice. 

Think of what happens when Earth is turned more toward the west than it "should" be.  That means that as the sun sets  (in the west), it shines on your area longer in the afternoon than it ordinarily would.  It would also seem higher at or near the North Pole for the same reason--more sun and delayed setting time.

Looking at the fact that we have no data about where the north-south line was pointing prior to December 2011, my best guess is that in the pre-2011 years, that line was pointing more easterly, which would explain the seeming discrepancy, i.e., why it was dark at 5 P.M. on and around winter solstice decades ago, and why the Inuits observe that the sun is "higher" now and rises and sets at different locations from days of old.

So for now, we can say that our north-south line and angle are stable, and since this year's data match those of 2015, our 2016 analemma would perfectly overlay that of 2015.  And because of our relative north-south stability during the 2013 through 2016 time period, if we do see some discrepancies start to creep in to the data, at least we will have a heads-up and can monitor even more closely to see "where we are headed".

Stay tuned, as today's reading (to be posted later) shows our north-south line is again slowly appearing to move more westerly (across our cornerstone base in the pic).
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on January 04, 2017, 03:45:00 PM

We are now seeing that familiar pattern where the sun's shadow appears to move slightly more westerly with each passing day, in its trek toward its location at summer solstice.  In addition, I am documenting the length of our sun's shadow daily, where possible, as another important piece of information that will help us determine our degree of planetary stability.

Recent observations:

December 5, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on concrete.
December 8, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ outside corner of right door jamb.
December 9, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.625" right on right door jamb.
December 18, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cornerstone base.

New observations:
December 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #4 on cellar door.
December 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cornerstone base.
December 27, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.625" right of #28, the left corner of our cornerstone base.
December 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 27.875" right of #28.
December 30, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.375" right of #28.
January 4, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 21.5625" right of #28.

One can see our progress across the cornerstone base, whose length is 36", by comparing daily locations of the noon sun-shadow.  Stay tuned for more!

After nearly two weeks without sun, finally it came out for a couple of hours mid-day.
Recent observations:
December 20, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #4 on cellar door.
December 22, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cornerstone base.
December 27, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.625" right of #28, the left corner of our cornerstone base.
December 29, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 27.875" right of #28.
December 30, 2016, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.375" right of #28.
January 4, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 21.5625" right of #28.

New observations:
January 6, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 20.628" right of #28.
January 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 19.0" right of #28.
January 9, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.125" right of #28.
January 21, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.0" right of #28.

The 2016 analemma would overlie that for 2015, so none will be done, saving time for other work.  In comparing where we were last year at this time in January, we are tracking along the same path, at least in our east-west motion of analemma.  And while I am still gathering sun shadow length to determine the sun's apparent elevation, those calculations aren't completed yet, so nothing can be said about that yet.

In viewing the attached pic, note that #28 is at the left corner of the cornerstone base, the base measuring 36" from left to right, giving you an idea of where we are now (9" is 1/4 of 36").  Stay tuned for more data.

While the direction the Earth's north-south line points is apparently, slowly moving westward (as part of its natural "wobble") as it has done is years past at this time of year, this year it appears to be farther westward than in recent years--on the same dates. It is too soon to know if this is just "observer error" or genuine change.  Time will tell and more info. will be posted as it comes in.

In addition, I am noticing a tiny discrepancy in the sun's apparent elevation between 2016 and 2017, on the same dates, and will have a more detailed update later.    For this, I am plotting the sun's apparent elevation (Y-axis) against the date (Julian) shown on the X-axis, all of which creates a lovely sine wave pattern.  I decided to plot these Sol elevations on the same grid, allowing 2017 data to overlie that of 2016  for a fairly accurate comparison.  As soon as a couple of months of 2017 data is obtained, I'll post a draft "sun's elevation on date" depiction comparing January and February from both years.

In the meantime...
Recent observations:
January 6, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 20.628" right of #28.
January 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 19.0" right of #28.
January 9, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.125" right of #28.
January 21, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.0" right of #28.

New observations:
January 24, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.0" right of #28 (left corner of cornerstone base).
January 30, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" right of #28.
January 31, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" right of #28.
February 1, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.5" right of #28.
February 2, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right of #28.

We have two sets of data to post, but the second one relates to a graph that I need to photograph first, possibly this week.

For now we have more data:
Recent observations:
January 24, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.0" right of #28 (left corner of cornerstone base).
January 30, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" right of #28.
January 31, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" right of #28.
February 1, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.5" right of #28.
February 2, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right of #28.

New observations:
February 3, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right of #28.
February 5, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right of #28.
February 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.
February 10, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.

In comparing this February time period with last year, it is interesting that for about one solid month, from February 11 to March 11, 2016, the north-south line remained at the corner marker #28.  This year is different, with few if any consecutive days remaining in the same apparent spot.  However tomorrow is the 11th, and we could see, beginning tomorrow, a sudden replay of last year.  Time will tell.  As soon as I finish the chart comparing the sun's shadow from 2016 to 2017, it will be posted.
Stay tuned!

In "Reply #159" above, I mentioned a tiny discrepancy in the sun's apparent elevation above the horizon in very recent times.  Now that I have more than one month of data, I've created a graph which contains data from both 2016 and 2017 during the same time period, January 1 through February 11. 

It was not my imagination that the sun is slightly higher in the sky this year, than last year, but because there are many factors involved, I'm not brave enough to make predictions or even hypothesize about what our near future holds.  I just gather the data and post it here for all of us to see and digest.

Below is my first graph showing a 2016-2017 January through February 11 comparison of the small but steady decrease in the length of the sun's noon shadow, a normal occurrence after Winter Solstice, and before Summer Solstice.   However, what is not a normal occurrence is the consistent discrepancy in the data of 2016 compared to that of 2017.  A few differences would most likely indicate observer error, but consistently varying shadow lengths, and thus elevation angles, would have a different explanation.

Interestingly, around February 10-11, it appears the data for both years is starting to converge.  Our next graph (February 12 forward) will be revealing.
Stay tuned.

We continue to gather both noon sun shadow length, as well as direction the sun's noon north-south line is pointing.  We are not seemingly stationary as last year for an entire month when the line pointed at #28, the left corner of our cornerstone base.  We are more or less "waffling" for now.
Recent observations:

February 3, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right of #28.
February 5, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right of #28.
February 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.
February 10, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left of #28.

New observations:
February 12, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.125" left of #28.
February 15, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.
February 17, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.625" left of #28.
February 19, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.375" left of #28.

There we have it for another few days, and our next adventure might be what kind of data we see on Spring Equinox.

 In the meantime, I should mention that a year or so ago I decided to start taking dual measurements of the sun's shadow, one as a backup or control for the other.  A bonus is that the second measurement is on a rather short pole, actually on a nearby deck.  The deck segment measures 9" in height, while our pole measures 64.75" and it is easy to see how a tiny bit of difference from one year to another, when looking at the "deck data", will be greatly increased in the "pole data" for the same date, assuming there are no observer errors.  In fact, in spite of a bit of extra work, I welcome the opportunity to show more accurately the sun's apparent elevation, which I can now do.

And the shot I posted recently showing "sun shadow length at noon", comparing 2016 and 2017 data, relates to the 9" deck segment.  A similar graph for the 64.75" pole will show a greater discrepancy due to the much greater height, but the corresponding angle will be the same or almost so.

Stay tuned for more data....

While we await storms and possible tornadoes (under tornado watch until 9 PM tonight), it seems a good time to post this data, in case we get blown away!
Recent observations:

February 12, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.125" left of #28.
February 15, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.
February 17, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.625" left of #28.
February 19, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.375" left of #28.

New observations:
February 20, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.375" left of #28.
February 22, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.
February 25. 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.375" left of #28.
February 27, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.

There you have it; we seem to be "waffling" in the vicinity of #28, rather than remaining stationary as we did last year.  Still gathering sun shadow length, and will post more in a few weeks--when there is enough data to fill one sheet of graph paper.

Stay tuned.....

Thank goodness for sunny days. 
Recent observations:

February 20, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.375" left of #28.
February 22, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.
February 25. 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.375" left of #28.
February 27, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.

New observations:
March 1, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28, left corner of our cornerstone base.
March 2, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.
March 4, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.
March 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.

Thus it appears our north pole is in the same vicinity as last year, when it "hung around" marker #28 for an entire month.

Also, more thoughts on the slight difference in the Sun's noon shadow length (which is a reflection of the Sun's elevation) between 2017 and last year.  Is it possible this difference is only an apparent and temporary difference, which will eventually disappear during the next four years, as the 2016 Leap Year's extra day is eventually compensated for?  Time will tell and stay tuned for more readings like the ones above, plus those on the Sun's elevation, coming later this month.

It appears we are finally "moving" again, after approximately one month of being in the same general orientation, as our north-south line seems to be moving east again.
Recent observations:

March 1, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28, left corner of our cornerstone base.
March 2, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.
March 4, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left of #28.
March 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.

New observations:
March 8, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.
March 9, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.875" right of #28.
March 10, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right of #28.

Still I gather data on the length of our Sun's noon shadow for incorporation into the continuing graph comparing data from 2016 with that of 2017, and this will be published again in a few weeks.
For now, one can see from the attachment that our north-south line will be moving to the right across our cornerstone base.  For a while.  And then if all is normal, it will again return to the vicinity of our left corner marker #28, which should occur around the time of Summer Solstice.  Stay tuned.

As we approach Spring Equinox, I am now thinking about Marshall's latest video posting, in which is stated something about March 20 having some significance.  As they say, whatever is, is.  For now, I'll keep gathering data and posting it ASAP.
Recent observations:
March 8, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ #28.
March 9, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.875" right of #28.

March 15, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" right of #28.
March 18, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.0" right of #28.

Still gathering noon sun shadow length, which is used to calculate sun's apparent angle above the horizon, and within a week or so, should have enough data to post the continuation of previous graph comparing 2016 with 2017 data (see February 12, 2017 posting).  Stay tuned for more data.

Even though we have three new pieces of data related to our north-south axis and which direction it points, I only have two here on the computer desk; the third (today's reading) will be added tomorrow in an "edit".
Also, I feel compelled to post separately, today,  the addendum to our graphing of sun shadow lengths, comparing 2016 with 2017.

March 23, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.75" right of #28.
March 24, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.25" right of #28.

In a nutshell, our north-south line is generally migrating to the east as it does at this time of year, but the pattern seems to be more of a "ratcheting" movement, which will become more apparent after today's reading is posted (tomorrow).  The data show that we move forward a bit, then back a bit, then forward again, as we did between 3-10 and 3-11, as we did between 3-15 and 3-18, and also between 3-23 and 3-24.  I took the liberty of including the March 10 reading in this edited post, to make it easier to see the apparent "back-and-forth" ratcheting of where the north-south line is pointing.
Stay tuned for more.  (Note:  this was edited today after retrieving my 3-24-17 data, and incorporates the 3-10-17 data for clarity.)

Finally we have a second graph, this one running from Feb. 11 through March 23, comparing 2016 and 2017 data for the sun's shadow length, which as we all know, is used to calculate the sun's apparent elevation above the horizon.  This second graph was suggesting that the two lines are converging, which would suggest they will become identical or nearly so, and that perhaps that initial variation between the two early in the year was due to the Leap Year day being added.  That was my first guess as to why the discrepancy.

Now after seeing the latest data, I'm not convinced Leap Year has anything to do with this discrapancy.  The graph speaks for itself; the shorter the sun's shadown length, the higher the sun's elevation in the sky.  Think of the sun being directly overhead--there would be no shadow at noon, and the sun cannot be higher than directly overhead.

For comparison, see the graph posted February 12, 2017.  We can see from today's graph that there is a rather large jump after Equinox in the difference of the sun's shadow length between 2016 and 2017.  I have written (squeezed in) the sun shadow length for 2016 along the top of the page, and sun shadow length for 2017 along the bottom margin of page, to give the reader the data itself, as well as the graphical representation, which conveys to the viewer how the shadow is changing over time. 

In the event I have not mentioned this before, I am now measuring the noon sun shadow length on two different posts, the original steel post, and a nearby shorter, but level, wooden 9" post.  The reason is simple--to avoid data gathering errors, as each post/pole can serve as a control against the other.  In other words, the data from each pole/post, when used to calculate the sun's apparent elevation above the horizon, should always yield an identical angle, or be very close.  It is difficult to achieve identity with these "in-the-field" measures, but "very close to each other" tells us we are getting good data.  More data and updates tp follow....

We are approximately at the point where our north-south line starts to migrate slowly westward again, and it is easier to envision when looking at an analemma.
Recent observations:

March 20, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.0" right of #28.
March 22, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.875" right of #28.
March 23, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.75" right of #28.
March 24, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.25" right of #28.

New observations:
April 2, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13" right of #28 (at far left corner of cornerstone base).
April 3, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.375" right of #28.
April 6, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 19.0" right of #28.
April 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.0" right of #28.

Still gathering data on the sun's noon shadow length, and have decided to plot 2017 data in red, and with 2016 data in black, we'll have a bit more clarity, and that graph has a week or two more data to gather before another posting.


Stay tuned for more data...

Finally a new graph comparing 2016 and 2017 data for sun's noon shadow length, a figure which can then be used to calculate the sun's apparent angle above the horizon.  It is interesting, but at this point, all I can say is, "it what it is".

There is one serious blip, then the two lines parallel each other, or one might say, are fairly identical, and considering my primitive measuring methods, the "fairly identical" might actually be "identical". 

Still, I gather data as carefully and accurately and precisely as possible, one reason being it just makes sense.  The other reason is that with all the more recent pictures of objects that appear in the same field of view as our Sun, there will eventually have to be some force(s) that will become obvious.  But for now, if those objects are still "behind" the sun, even if they appear "adjacent to" it, their position behind the sun would mask any gravitational pull between the object and Earth, as long as our Sun is more massive than the object(s).

See attached pic of graph and stay tuned for more data.

As we approach summer solstice, not only do the days become longer, but the sun's shadow gets shorter very quickly, suddenly it seems, and it actually makes it more difficult to measure its length on the shorter 9" post, so having two posts, one 64.75" and the other 9", make up for each other's weaknesses.  This data I use less often than the direction of the north-south line, but both are equally important.

Recent observations:
April 25, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13.0" left of cellar door's right edge
April 27, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.0" left of cellar door's right edge

We are only weeks away from Summer Solstice and the thing I love about it now is gathering the pertinent data for that particular date and comparing it to those related data for previous years.  As you know the summer and winter solstices are key data points in the issues we are now studying.

Although this graph isn't proof of Earth Axis Shift, it is part of the bigger picture, which has already shown the changes in direction of the north-south line over time. 

Further, if the Earth's apparent elevation changes from the normal, it would manifest rather soon on a graph such as this.  Since I have data going back a bit, have decided to do these comparison charts, showing data from 2015, 2016 and 2017, together for better comparison.

Since I'm so late with this one, it won't be too long before the next one is ready to post, as the next one is more than half-full of data points already.

Pretty impressive records you've been keeping Ilinda! 

We notice the shift daily here, as ground wasn't broken for our house in the 1990's until an Amish solar consultant had used his Solar Pathfinder to mark the direction the house should face, which is due east with the roof ridgeline running east-west, in order to capture the most southern sun.  The sun now rises at the far north-east corner of our house, making me wonder if solar companies around the world are taking notice.  They surely must, using the Solar Pathfinder on a regular basis in their work.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on July 25, 2017, 04:13:29 PM
It seems a number of people are noticing "things aren't like they used to be".  One friend said when he bought his farm about 9 years ago the sun rose and set at certain places, and now that has changed.

You are most likely correct in that solar companies would have to be noticing the changes.  The Inuits certainly have.  I've not used Solar Pathfinder, so will investigate it.

Plus my readings are at noon, which is only one minute out of 1,440 per day.  I've seen on the internet reports of a daily wobble, which if I understand correctly, would not be seen by my 12 noon observations, and which is yet another anomaly to all of this.

Finally another graph showing the length of Sol's noon shadow (12 noon CST or 1 PM CDT) for the years 2015, 2016 and 2017.  This figure is used to calculate the sun's apparent elevation above the horizon. 

This can be calculated using trigonometry:  angle alpha is obtained from tangent of alpha (tan alpha), which is "y/x".   "Y" is the height of our vertical pole against which the sun shines, and "X" is the length of the noon shadow of said pole as its shadow falls across the level surface at the base of the pole, in our case the ground.  Once we have "y" and "X", and then Y/X, we look in trig tables for the angle that coresponds with the tangent.  (Ordinarily I don't repeat the above details, but periodically do so for newbies.)

As we can see from attached photo, 2017 is closely tracking 2015 and 2016.  Admittedly, I don't have these figures for years previous, as I was not collecting this data then, except at solstices.

Today's reading should be a bit further to the right, as that would be expected if everything is working as usual.  Time will tell and we shall see if today's apparent backtrack is of any importance.

This spring and summer have been unusually normal, and no, I'm not complaining, but will be curious to see if this normalcy is reflected in any of our data.  Within a week or so, we  should have yet another three-year graph comparing the sun's shadow length (used to calculate sun's apparent elevation above horizon), and it will be interesting to note if this normal and sometimes cool weather is indicated in our graph in any way.

Am also just about ready to post the latest graph showing 2015, 2016, and 2017 Sol's noon shadow length, day by day when sunny, and this shadow length is used to calculate the sun's apparent elevation above the horizon; there are two dates, winter and summer solstice, on which the apparent elevation is "written in stone".  In other words, elevation for these two dates can be calculated prior to each solstice, and then the data gathered on solstice should match the precalculated figure.

For now, we can see how our north-south line is pointing farther and farther to the "right" or easterly.

Here is the latest three year comparison graph showing Sol's noon shadow length, a piece of data used to calculate the sun's apparent angle of elevation.  Mind you, I do not have such "complete" records for years prior to 2015, because between 2011 and 2014, inclusive, I was only thinking that solstices had much value (but then wised up a bit).

Also, sorry about all the stray marks, and "whiteout" plastered all over to cover said stray marks, and also apologize for the serious wrinkling of paper.  The latest graph, on which I am now working is being kept separate from my field notes, for better protection, so should show marked improvement over the attached one.

As noted on the paper, red ink is used for 2015, blue for 2016, and black for 2017, and am mentioning it in the event not all computer screens show darker colors that clearly.  Also, at this time of year, the shadow length is growing quickly, thus the new graph chart I am now creating is on typical graph paper, but is turned 90 degrees, making it taller than it is wide, and meaning more data can be squeezed onto one sheet.  Until the next update, enjoy.

Another sunny day, so more readings to report.  My data seems somewhat consistent with the past two years, but I'm hearing reports about a daily Earth wobble, and should mention that my data most likely would not record that, as I only get readings at exactly noon, Central Standard Time, on sunny days.  The reports I hear talk about the sunrise and/or sunset wavering from one location to another, and not showing a gradual movement, as normally occurs during the change of seasons.  If I hear anything definite, will report on it here.

Recent observations:
August 27, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 14.875" right of #28.
August 30, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 22" right of #28.
September 2, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.5" right of #28.
September 4, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 28.125" right of #28.
September 5, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 32.0" right of #28.
September 6, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 33.25" right of #28.

New observations:
September 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 36.0" right of #28.
September 8, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed at right corner of cornerstone base (a few millimeters from 9-7-17 reading).
September 9, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5" left of cellar door's right edge.
September 10, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" left of cellar door's right edge.
September 11, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5" left of cellar door's right edge.
September 14, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed to door jamb, 3.25" right of the inside corner where jamb meets door.

More data to follow, so stay tuned.

In just a few more days we will have yet another triple graph showing and comparing the sun's noon shadow length (in MO, USA) for 2015, 2016, and 2017, this coming graph representing  September, 2017.  In the meantime, more sunny days means more data.
Recent observations:
September 7, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 36.0" right of #28.
September 8, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed at right corner of cornerstone base (a few millimeters from 9-7-17 reading).
September 9, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5" left of cellar door's right edge.
September 10, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" left of cellar door's right edge.
September 11, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5" left of cellar door's right edge.
September 14, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed to door jamb, 3.25" right of the inside corner where jamb meets door.

New observations:
September 15, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed to door jamb , 2.875" right of inside corner...
September 16, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed to door jamb, 5.25" right of inside corner...
September 21, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" right on concrete blocks.
September 22, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right on concrete blocks.
September 24, 2017 noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.0" right on concrete blocks.
September 25, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right on concrete blocks.

Haven't had time to compare the exact direction and location of the current north-south line, to that of 2015 or 2016. The attachment pic  is getting "old", but right now it is relevant to where our north is pointing.  Stay tuned for more data.

It is time already for another update graph showing the length of Sol's noon shadow, plotted against day/date.  Not every day has noonday sun, so there are many missing days/dots.  Again, the graph shows data for 2015 (red), 2016 (blue) and 2017 (black) and if we're still around in a few months, 2018 will be in green.  And as readers probably know, the length of the sun's noon shadow can be used to calculate the sun's apparent elevation above the horizon, and from this information, we can determine if we are "where we are supposed to be", especially on solstice and equinox. 

This chart is not perfect, but I try very diligently to make this as accurate and precise as possible, as this is the best we have until someone with high-tech equipment and data records steps up to the plate.

Sorry that this is a bit dark, as the camera always fools me into thinking it will provide the pics I want.  So I had to lighten it up a bit in a color utility just to show the text details, in this latest attachment, #0476.
NOTE:  Editing this on 10-11-17 to incorporate a clearer pic/attachment.

In this film, Scott Cone and Dr. Claudia Albers use satellite photos of planet earth dating from December 2015 to present, demonstrating visually how clearly evident a 2,000 mile crustal pole shift already is from space.  The photo below shows that Australia has moved to the equator, explaining the blistering hot summers there.  Our planet has tipped over on its side, they say.  Question: if the seasonal tilt is 23.5 degrees and there are 69 miles per degree, then doesn't that account for 1621.5 of the 2,000 miles?

Contrary to reports by Matt Rogers, Dr. Albers says that magnetic north (as opposed to polar north) has indeed shifted toward Siberia (which now drops down to nearly -60 degrees F in winter), causing the earth to right itself such that polar north returns to a position perpendicular to the ecliptic plane, resulting in a gentler crustal slide that exposes the Arctic and Antarctic to more sunlight in winter, and that cannot be felt by us at this time.  This indicates that the crust is still fused to the core, and will not float freely until the core heats up enough to allow the mantle to break away.  Significantly heightened earthquake activity will signal that this has occurred.

Watched about 5 minutes of this nearly-three hour video and it looks worth viewing in its entirety.

I've seen and read of this same claim in the past year or so about the extreme wobble or tilt to the Earth, and while my data does not show that, I'm not going to dispute their claims.  One reason is that I keep seeing reference to a daily wobble, where it may be possible, if it is occurring, that the sunrise and sunsets are "off", but mid-day may be "normal" whatever that might be in these times.

Also, there was a time in the past couple of years where I made some erroneous calculations, and stated it appears our polar tilt is about 15 degrees off.  Then I checked my calculations and realized the error, and posted such.

Another thing about the tilt being off:  From my records spanning from December, 2011 through October, 2017, the largest difference between the direction the north pole points was between December, 2011 and December, 2012, and then again between December 2012 and December 2013.  Importantly, my data ONLY shows data collected at exactly noon, CST.

I do not have one speck of data on the sun's angle or any other time of day, so imagine this scenario.  Picture a huge pendulum, similar to that of a grandfather clock.  But there is one difference in our pendulum:  it is not restricted to an east-west or west-east or right-left or left-right swing.  It can swing in any direction, and sometimes does.  However, no matter in which direction it swings, it is tethered at the top, so always passes through its central point (noon) on its way from one direction to another.  In visualizing this scenario, one can see how a noon-day reading (pendulum at mid-point) could give the appearance of normalcy, i.e., the pendulum always swings past that same mid point, regardless of where it's been or where it's going.

Hopefully I haven't confused anyone, but am trying to help show (myself included) how my data shows somewhat consistent readings these past few years, as opposed to the time between 2011 and 2013.  And remember, my data only shows a noon reading, for the direction the north pole points, as well as the length of Sol's shadow.

I'll watch the video and maybe learn something!

Thank you for the compliment, but I won't "put myself out there" to anyone or any local agency, as like most in awareness, "been there, done that".  Here's a perfect example:  About 2 years ago or less, I met an astronomy teacher who was building a couple of tiny cabins not too many miles from where I live.  A friend who had met him took me over there to meet him (I had heard he teaches astronomy so my radar went up), and the conversation came around to things somewhat unusual. 

I mentioned my data gathering and a general overview of it, and he said, "I hate to burst your bubble, but if the Earth were shifting or had shifted, the mainstream news would be all over it!"   So I didn't push the issue any further, thinking he is where he is, and I am where I am, and that is that.

Then about a year or so ago a friend got wind of some of the claims by Carlos Ferrada, and I mentioned that he has a lot of credibility as far as I can see.  Friend then said, "You don't really believe that do you?????  I reminded her of what I had told her initially--that my visions came long before I ever heard of Z. Sitchin or Carlos Ferrada, and it was they that correlated with my visions.

I've given up trying to show anyone antthing.  Heck, I didn't even bother to show hubby the pic I took of the sun at 6:02 P.M. a few weeks ago which shows something in the same field of view as the sun.  Nor have I shown him the three pictures (to be re-posted tonight) that I took in 2015, that are too bright, but suggest "something" very near the sun  (last night I did a few color manipulations on them making them even more convincing).

So the long answer is above, and the short answer is "no".  LOL sort of.  Hope you're not offended.

We've passed Equinox and our next landmark will be Winter Solstice, and this one I'm REALLY looking forward to, as it will make the seventh such solstice for which we have data, and will show if the holding pattern remains as it has for the years 2013 through 2016.
For now:
Recent observations:
September 15, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed to door jamb , 2.875" right of inside corner...
September 16, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed to door jamb, 5.25" right of inside corner...
September 21, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" right on concrete blocks.
September 22, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right on concrete blocks.
September 24, 2017 noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.0" right on concrete blocks.
September 25, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right on concrete blocks.


New observations:
September 26, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed at junction of concrete block and "Add-on board" (AOB).
September 28, 2017, noon CST, north-southg line pointed 1.75" right on AOB.
September 29, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right on AOB.
September 30, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" right on AOB.
October 2, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" right on AOB.
October 12, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on AOB.
October 13, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.0" right on AOB.

Our north-south line (pointing north) is approximately where I think it has been at this time of year, but will check carefully, as it seems 8.0" is the farthest it has been on this AOB.

Stay tuned for more data....

One addendum would be that if circumstances change, i.e., that it appears TPTW have little or no power left, then it might be a different story.  We'll all be reading our situations carefully looking for the signs we need.

Because the sun's angle above the horizon changes rather rapidly at this time of year, the data gathered for one month will quickly fill a sheet of graph paper, or even run off the top of the page before the month is over.
The attachment shows the latest figures for the sun's apparent angle above the horizon, comparing 2015, 2016 and 2017.  Interesting.
Stay tuned for more.

Hard to believe that it's time to post another graph plotting the sun's noon shadow length by date.  Quite by chance, we now will have two consecutive graphs posted, showing how the sun's apparent elevation changes at this time of year, as the days grow shorter, and sun's apparent elevation continues to be reduced.

It may be too early to say much of significance about the appearance of our current graph, but it does appear to display the beginning of a trend.  Time will tell, so stay tuned.

Hard to believe we're barely a month away from winter solstice!  In the meantime, we still have a lot of data to gather, so hang on to your seats.

Recent observations:

October 25, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.0" right on AOB.
October 26, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" right on AOB.

New observations:
October 31, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.875" right on AOB.
November 3, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.5" right on AOB.
November 8, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" right on AOB.
November 11, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on AOB.
November 16, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.0" right on AOB.
November 19, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" right on AOB.

There we have it for now, and it does appear that the north-south line is slowly on the move in a westerly direction as it does at this time of year, which is more easily envisioned when viewing an analemma. 

But rather than preparing an analemma for this year, I plan to concentrate on the creation of successive graphs showing the changing length of Sol's noon shadow, comparatively for 2015 and 2016 and 2017.   Studying these graphs gives the observer a better picture of any new trends or patterns that may appear.  Stay tuned.

Soon we will be at Winter Solstice, and this is one I've been waiting for all year!  Because of the pattern I'm seeing recently regarding the length of the Sun's noon shadow, am especially interested in both types of Solstice data:  noon sun shadow length, as well as direction the north-south line points--will it be consistent with the recent years' data, or will it diverge? 

Stay tuned, as the graph of noon sun shadow length, plotted by day, comparing 2015, 2016, and 2017 will be published shortly as the most recent graph is filling up quickly.

Our other data, the latest graph plotting the Sun noon shadow length, by date, comparing 2015, 2016, and 2017, is about to be released, so stay tuned.  In the meantime, our north-south line seems to be tracking years past, as it appears to move left or west, and we'll see if on Winter Solstice it appears in same position it did in years past.

Attached is the latest three-year graph which plots the length of Sol's noon shadow, by date, this particular paper covering November 11 through approx. December 13.  I apologize for the "white-out" as I rarely create these in pencil.  As mentioned before, the sun's noon shadow is used to calculate the sun's apparent angle above the horizon, and very shortly we will be in Winter Solstice where the exact expected angle is easily calculated, and can be compared to the angle calculated from our observational data.

Because the differences between 2015 and years 2016 and 2017 are obvious, I have already begun creating the next graph.  This next one (which will need all data for December 2017 before I can post it) is so bizarre that I wonder if I have erred in data collection along the way.  This will be discussed further around the end of December with the next three-year graph posting.

For now, enjoy the two pics of the current three-year comparison.  When I try to rotate the one to vertical, much is chopped off in the process, so both are posted.

Yesterday on Solstice, we had total clouds.  Same with today.  I did get a reading on 12-20-17, and am just waiting for sun again.  But with a "before" and "after" line, it is fairly easy to determine its approximate location on Solstice.  Because the north-south line is right in the same vicinity as the lines for certain previous years, I did go ahead and prepare the cardstocks for an update, which I'll post within five minutes!

BTW, thank you for your compliment and stay tuned for more data...

OK, we lived through a totally cloudy Winter Solstice yesterday, 12-21-2017, but I did get a reading on 12-20, and am just waiting for the next sunny day.  But in the meantime, the 12-20 reading was right in the same vicinity as those for the years 2013 through 2016, and very different from the readings of 2011 and 2012.

I'm posting a distant, overall view of the "site" where readings are obtained, as well as a close-up view.  The overall view shows the landmarks mentioned in the readings such as concrete, cornerstone base, cellar door, add-on board.   The close-up view shows the north-south lines drawn from the steel pole of the solar mount, out to their respective locations.

It is obvious that the 2011 north-south line pointing more westward, is quite distant from the north-south 2012 line pointing far east.  Then, it can be seen that the north-south Winter Solstice lines for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 are identical or nearly so, and in between the far-left 2011 and far-right 2012.

So what that suggests is that whatever force(s) were acting on our Earth, presumably our magnetics, such as North Pole and/or South Pole, in 2011 and 2012 are not being noticed right now.  It also suggests that the forces working in 2011 were different from those acting in 2012.

 As suggested before, think of the possibility of a body, object, or group of objects having moved into our Solar System in 2011 in a manner described by Carlos Ferrada in his (?1978?) interview. (The orbital plane of the Hercolobus system was depicted as quite oblique to our ecliptic.)  As a massive body with magnetic field moves toward our Sun, and toward the Earth, it would exert certain forces.

 Then imagine that same object(s), a year later, in 2012, still moving toward the Sun, but having passed the Earth, and then moving away from Earth, but still toward the Sun, the forces on the Earth and its magnetic field would be very different from those experienced in 2011.

My best guess is that the mass of our Sun is, for the present, still the predominant player, regarding forces acting upon the Earth.  And in spite of the hundreds or more of world-wide observations showing objects in the same field of view as our Sun, they are still far enough "behind" the Sun, that they are not yet close enough to override the influence and control the Sun has over the Earth.

But because of Ferrada's depiction of Hercolobus' orbital path, it appeared that the "outward" journey of that system will appear to play out much more rapidly than the "inward journey".  OK, stay tuned for more updates, and check out updated pics.

Based on your many measurement(s) do you think that PX has reached perihelion yet?

Very interesting data!  ;)

Ilinda,

Based on your many measurement(s) do you think that PX has reached perihelion yet?

Very interesting data!  ;)
Max.
You are asking the same question I'm now pondering, and am glad you brought this up.  My data alone would probably not give a definitive "yes" or "no", while very early in perihelion, or receding from it, however we have a lot of help.

In a nutshell,  I think this is where we are:  because Marshall has vetted his interviewees so well, I think we can look at the pics and videos of the two most recent ones, namely Lana in Tucson and Amber in West Virginia.  There have been many, but  Lana and Amber have captured successive images, which show the sun, along with one or more objects, aside from the usual lens flare(s).

There are at least two things that can be done that will help answer your question.  One is so low-tech it's something even a person too young for school could probably do, and that is measure these objects.  For example, if someone knows the magnification/zoom used (if any) on a given shot, a careful measurement (preferably metric which seems a bit more precise) of the apparent diameter of any non-solar object can be made, and this measurement should be made on at least one shot from every video session. 

The reason is simple:  If the size of a given object continues to increase, albeit slowly, we can be fairly certain it is approaching closer and has passed perihelion, whereas if the size continues to remain the same we cannot tell yet.  And if it decreases in size, it is likely still headed "out" toward perihelion. 

A second exercise we can do is take the(se) measurements of the objects in question and use them to roughly calculate the distance a given object is from us/the observer.   We do this by using the "Small Angle Formula" (gleaned from my astronomy book Universe, by Roger Freedman and William Kaufmann)  which will allow any of us to make this calculation.

Initially when I viewed Amber's first video, I did measure the object of interest.  I held a metric rule up to the screen and measured the object to be about 1/3 the size of her pointing index finger.  (Edit: I have edited out the measurement of 33 mm until I find my original notes, however the object was approximately 1/3 the size of her finger.)

Today I re-watched Lana in Tucson describe and show her findings, and I did also measure the object(s) in some of the shots.  It is really important to know whether the camera is zoomed in, or out, with no zoom being best for our purposes in calculating.

The Small Angle Formula is  D = (alpha x d)/206,265 and I'm attaching a shot of a better visual of it.  I will be glad to elaborate on how it was derived, but cutting to the chase, the number 206,265 is required in the formula, as it is equal to the number of arcseconds in a complete circle (360 deg)--divided by the number 2 pi (which itself is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to that circle's radius).  Anyway, I don't study and dwell on the derivation of this formula--I just use it. 

The "D" represents the linear size of an astronomical object approximated by seconds of arc.
"Alpha" represents the angular size of the object to be measured.
The "d" represents the distance to the object.

Since we want to calculate for distance, we rewrite the formula,  d =  (D x 206,265)/alpha

I'll review my notes from the measurements I made by merely holding a ruler up to the screen, and hopefully tonight show a few rough calculations based on the very valuable information we are getting from these researchers, Lana and Amber.

Stay tuned....

Post by: ilinda on December 25, 2017, 04:37:20 PM
This is an addendum I promised earlier today.

We'll do an exercise using some of the data from one of Amber Williamson's images, and for now we will pretend the object she captured in the same field of view of the Sun was Nemesis.  Mind you, by pretending she captured Nemesis, we are also pretending we know which object she photographed.  And in Marshall Masters' book, Being In It For The Species, we find some handy (relative) sizes postulated for the various objects in the PX system. 

From the book we find:  Arboda - 2.5X the size of Earth; Helion - 3.5X; Nibiru - 6X; and Nemesis - 56X, and since we are going to do the calculation based on our view that Amber photographed Nemesis, and now we know Nemesis is 56 times the size of Earth, we are close to finding one number for our Small Angle Formula.  Since Earth is 12,756 km in diameter, and Nemesis is 56 X the size of Earth, then Nemesis would be 56 X 12,756 km = 714,336 km in diameter.  This will be "D" the linear size of our object.

How do we find alpha, the angular size of the object?  By looking at it in the sky and comparing it to a finger, open fist, closed fist, etc. and in this case, the object appeared to be about 1/3 or 0.33 the size of Amber's index finger.  The websites showing how to calculate distances in the sky often use the "little finger" as an example of 1 degree, when held at arm's length against the sky.  For now, we will pretend Amber's index finger is about the size of her little finger, thus it subtends an angle in the sky of about one degree.  Thus one third of that, which represents the object seen, would be 0.33 degree.

Now, since there are 3600 arcseconds (arcsec) in each degree, that means there are about 1200 arcsec in 0.33 degree (actually 1188) and we will use 1200 for ease of calculation.  (Remember this is just an exercise to show how to use this neat little formula!)  So our alpha will be 1200 arcsec.

And back to our little formula we rewrote to:  d = (D x 206,265)/alpha
We can now start to plug in numbers:   d = (714,336 km x 206,265)/1200
                            and we get:            d = 147,342,575,040 km/1200
                             resulting in:           d = 122,785,429.2 km is the distance that our "Nemesis" is from the observer.  Now, what would that mean to us?  Well, our Sun is about 93 million miles or 146 million km from Earth, so comparing 122 million to 146 million, we would realize that, oops, Nemesis is closing in, as it would be closer to us than is the sun.

However we only used Nemesis to show how to use this handy little formula and we could have easily used any of the objects mentioned in Marshall's book.  In fact, in the book Universe, there is a similar example which starts, "For example on November 28, 2000, Jupiter was 609 million km from Earth.  Jupiter's angular diameter on that date was 48.6 arcsec.  Using the Small Angle Formula, we can calculate Jupiter's diameter as follows:  D = (48.6 x 609,000,000 km)/206,265  = 143,000 km.

Now that we have a formula that can be very useful for calculating astronomical distance, and we are starting to see objects in the same vicinity, i.e., in the same field of view, as the sun, our main task is to determine to the best of our ability which object we are viewing.  If we do not know, but have really good images, then we can do the calculations for several of the objects for which we have "known" sizes relative to Earth, and will have a number of possibilities.

As time moves on, and these objects show themselves better and better, for example the obviously blue, small object in some of Lana's shots, we will be more and more confident about naming the object and honing our calculations to become more and more accurate.

Last but not least, I may have made a minor error in my post a few hours ago, regarding a measurement I had made a month or two ago, of the object in one of Amber's images.  I need to review those older notes and if possible will "edit/correct" today's earlier post.

MadMax, hopefully this answers your question--I tried not to write a novelette, but sometimes we need these details.  Stay tuned for anyone and everyone to start taking more pictures and doing some calculations.

Ilinda, Thanks for the fascinating explanations.  Am excited that we may be coming to a point of being able to extrapolate some hard data on location, as that would seem to be necessary in guesstimating the "when" of it, assuming a regular elliptical trajectory and not the static circular orbit @ perihelion that a few have speculated about.

Like you, I'm excited about all this, as we have reached a new stage in this whole "PX thing" because now we have these successive observations being produced by credible witnesses/researchers such as Lana and Amber, and maybe we can individually and/or collectively use their observations to begin calculating movements of objects, distances, directions, etc. 

It's all new to all of us and also so complex, when you think of how the Earth is rotating around its axis, while at the same time, moving slowly in its orbital path around Sol, and simultaneous to that, we now have these other bodies (who knows how many?) of varying sizes and masses, also moving in their own orbit around a central body, all of which is moving around Sol!   Probably the best we can do is to begin to identify the largest bodies in the PX System and focus on them.  For example, the objects photographed by Lana and Amber are ones I'd categorize as "large", even that smallish blue one in Lana's pics. 

Now that we are at a new stage, it makes me want to catch a few more pics now and then.  Also, hopefully others will want to capture some shots now that the objects of interest are looming larger and more distinct all the time, depending of course on chemtrail spraying.  Good luck everyone!

Because MadMax has asked the question about perihelion, I'm curious as to what everyone else thinks?

Is the system we've been observing approaching perihelion? 

Is it approximately in perihelion? 

Or has it passed that closest point in its orbit around our Sol and is now starting on its outward journey away from the sun for another approximately 3648 lunar years, but still must pass through the proximity of the inner planets including Earth on its way out?

Dr. Claudia Albers has stated that the Px system is here and trapped due to in excess of a thousand brown dwarfs docked at Sol's corona.  She has expressed that their combined mass is exerting a force upon the Guest Star that is preventing it from exiting at this time.  Seems like maybe a new twist on the narrative of how events have played out in the past?

Also, I don't know if Terall Croft's Black Star is part of the Px system, as he says it is entirely invisible except for its energetic calling card, and is also trapped in a back-and-forth position between Saturn and Jupiter.  Almost seems like a stellar version of the Traffic Jam game  :)

(https://beigomon.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/blogo.png?w=353)

@ 1:45 on the Helioviewer footage from November 3, 2017,  Nemesis is coming around from the backside of the sun, reaching and passing perihelion according to Dr. Albers' analysis.

Ilinda,

Thanks for all the interesting information and analysis! I guess that another key metric for me is the size and frequency of large “fire ball” events and how their frequency and size seems to be increasing recently.

As more good pictures are coming in from reliable sources this should enable measurements to be refined and made more accurate in the near future.

Thanks again for all your good work here,
Max.

I certainly appreciate the input from both of you, as this story just keeps evolving, doesn't it?!

I had no idea of much of what Dr. Albers is saying of late, but if true, then maybe we've bought some time.  OTOH, nothing is static, and the increase in fireballs does suggest that it, or part of it, continues to approach. 

Thanks again for your input, plus all of the posts you've both made.   It seems like this site just gets better and better as we become acquainted with more researchers, more data, and more people posting, as we continue to piece together this puzzle.  And it makes us all aware that exactly what happened in the past flyb-by would never be exactly what is to happen in a future one.

Finally the graph for December, comparing sun shadow length, by date, for the years 2015, 2016, and 2017, is complete.  I did carry over for a few days into January 2018, and when January's graph is done, I'll probably stretch it a bit into February, etc.

The only thing I really want to emphasize on this graph is that it is possible I have made a mistake, and that even if I have not, my only advice is, "do not panic", when you examine the graph.  Remember the "upset" parts of the graph represent only an inch or two here and there, and when one looks at the size of the planet compared to a few inches of possible deviation from  the norm, one can realize the near insignificance of the possibly abnormal data.

Attached are two pics of the same graph, as I'm still a novice at getting exactly the shot I want.  Stay tuned for more data--not only January sun shadow lengths, but also the direction of the north-south line, i.e., where north really is.

Apparently I've missed posting quite a few readings (since 12-11-17), probably due to the anticipation over winter solstice readings.
Recent observations:
December 6, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.75" right on concrete.
December 8, 2017, noon CST, north--south line pointed 0.76" right on right door jamb.
December 9, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1/0" right on concrete.

New Observations:
December 11, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" right on right door jamb.
December 12, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.9375" right on right door jamb.
December 16, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on right door jamb.
December 20, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.0" left of right door corner.
December 25, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 34.125" right on cornerstone base.
December 27, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 32.75" right on cornerstone base.
December 29, 2017, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.0" right on cornerstone base.
January 4, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.25" right on cornerstone base.
January 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 17.5" right on cornerstone base.
January 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.25" right on cornerstone base.
January 18, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13.5" right on cornerstone base.
January 19, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 12.125" right on cornerstone base.

As can be seen, our north-south line is slowly migrating "to the left", or westward, as it does at this time of year, and very shortly I'll be posting another comparative graph, showing different data, i.e., the length of Sol's noon shadow, which can be used to calculate the Sun's apparent elevation above horizon.  Stay tuned for more....

Finally the latest three-year graph comparing sun's noon shadow length for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 is here.  I'm still calling it a three-year graph because of several reasons: 

In addition to 2016 and 2017, we only have January of 2018 for this year, plus we only have one or two dates in early January, 2015, and March through December, 2015, since I did not collect this data through most of January and February, 2015.   So, when March 2018 arrives, we can then begin posting our four-year graph, which should be really interesting, as comparing four years worth of data is something we haven't yet done.

We can see in today's post that the sun's noon shadow length, and thus its apparent elevation above the horizon, has varied a bit over the past three years, so we will certainly be anxious to see what unfolds as 2018 progresses.  Stay tuned....

February 6, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on cornerstone base.
February 8, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.9375" right on cornerstone base.
February 9, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly @ cornerstone base.

Soon I will have another three-year comparison graph of the sun's noon shadow length, and by the end of March, we will be having four years worth of sun shadow data, as March, 2015 is the time I finally recognized the importance of sun's shadow length on days other than solstice!

Today Dr. Albers posted a white paper documenting the signs of an imminent pole shift:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzLRt7MEduk

In addition to a weakened magnetic shield, power grid instability and the appearance of multiple pole locations, she also adds increased cancer rates, misplaced auroras and the appearance of noctilucent clouds as signs of the shift.  With the weakest spot in Earth's magnetic field being concentrated above Brazil's coastline, Dr. Albers notes that so much space radiation is pouring in at that location, that orbiting satellites can become fried just by passing through the zone.

Dr. Albers may be correct.  It's been a long time since those graphic representations of Earth's polar magnetics have looked normal as the one of the left.  I don't think they are quite as disoriented and jumbled at the one on the right YET, but there have been so many posted showing lots of magnetic abnormalities in our magnetics.

We are now at a point in the slow movement of our north-south toward a more westerly direction (easily seen in an analemma), where everything appers to slow to a crawl for a while. 

In years past, we (the north-south line pointing north in Northern Hemisphere) have "remained" stationary for about a month at this time of year, and so far, this year is no exception, so observational data is somewhat routine for now.

Recent observations:
February 2, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.0" right on cornerstone base.
February 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right on cornerstone base.
February 6, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on cornerstone base.
February 8, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.9375" right on cornerstone base.
February 9, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly @ cornerstone base.

New observations:
February 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ cornerstone base (csb).
February 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.
February 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.
February 18, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.
February 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.

Another comparison graph has been prepared which is showing three years of data on Sun's shadow length at noon, and it will be posted ASAP.

I don't know if this has a direct connection to what you're doing Ilinda, but there is a tree in bloom near here that should be dormant right now, here in the North in February.
It could be related to the slight change in axial tilt, although I don't have as many years of data as I'd like.  But I cannot forget that the Inuit elders interviewed in a video talked about how the sun isn't where it should be, and they would know, as their survival always depended on knowing where the sun rose and set at any given time during the year. 

The data I'm getting doesn't show much if viewed for a short period, but seen in totality, it shows a pattern if change.

The weather seems to be bizarre about everywhwere and just today my farmer friend said she's so worried about our current warm spell as she's afraid many things will bloom too soon, then get frozen.

Some things are on time, and others ??
1)  woodcocks making their strange beep/honk/bleat sound out in the fields around dusk--heard a couple of days ago.
2) hubby pointed out egg masses of spotted salamander in one of our hand-dug ponds
3) peep frogs singing like maniacs, which I could listen to for hours (and do)
4) ?? Eastern Bluebirds--saw male and females yesterday, but not sure if it's a bit early
5) Canada Geese--difficult to describe--they seem to spread out their time of migration longer each year.  Heard some in January this year--early for migrating back north--but hearing more in early February--but still not all of them, cuz when they really start moving, there are many many flocks passing over and so far that hasn't happened

Am trying to think of all the early blossoming trees and Shadbush comes to mind, as IIRC it blooms (white) even earlier than dogwood, but around here not in February! More like March.

In fact I recall reading once it's named so because it blooms when the shad are spawning (or migrating?).  IIRC the shadbush flowers are in clusters so that could possibly be one, but I don't recall seeing one up close and personal, so not sure.

I wasn't familiar with it under that name Ilinda, but looked it up and recognized Canadian Serviceberry.  Interesting about its bloom being timed with shad migration!

Finally below is the latest three-year graph comparing the length of our sun's noon shadow, for the years 2016, 2017 and 2018. 

This current graph runs from January 27 through approx. February 17, and after the next graph which will run from approx. Feb. 17 through early March, we will be able to see a four-year comparison, as my 2015 data was missing early data, and begins in earnest around March 6.

This graph shows a rather "jerky" appearance of what is ordinarily straight-ish or curving lines.  It is interesting to note that data for 2017 and 2018 show very close correlation with each other.

  Note:  Because I had forgotten to re-set the internal time/date battery for this picture, it defaults to December 31, 1969--a date long before the camera even existed).  Picture was taken first week of March, 2018.

Stay tuned for more data.

Taking a quick break from other pressing matters....
Recent observations:
February 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ cornerstone base (csb).
February 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.
February 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.
February 18, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.
February 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb.
Taking a quick break from other pressing matters....

New observations:
February 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" left of csb.
March 2, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb. left corner
March 3, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb. left corner.
March 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" right of left corner of csb.
March 14, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right of left corner of csb.
March 15, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.25" right of left corner of csb. (same as saying "3.25 right on csb").

Am still gathering sun shadow length data for calculating apparent elevation of Sol above horizon, and will post ASAP, when several pressing projects here are complete.
Stay tuned for more data.  And finally after the longest winter I can ever recall, today was in 70's and sunny and FUN.

Note:  this was edited May 13, 2018, after discovering on May 13, that I had made an error for April 4 north-south line.
Time is flying, according to recent posts, the fireballs, comets, and debris, bolides and the like are "falling almost like snowflakes", and Amber Williamson is showing us the object she is photographing in the same field of view as the sun is moving into a new position, and appears to be larger than it did in earlier pics.  The times they are a'changing.

Recent observations:
February 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" left of csb.
March 2, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb. left corner
March 3, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ csb. left corner.
March 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.75" right of left corner of csb.

March 15, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.25" right of left corner of csb. (same as saying "3.25 right on csb").

New observations:
March 30, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right on csb.
April 4, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 29.5" right on csb.
April 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.615" right on csb.

Very soon, I will post some new 3- and 4-year graphs comparing the sun's apparent elevation, in approximate one-month intervals.  The papers are in front of me, beckoning, wanting to be put into graph form.

Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on April 26, 2018, 11:51:24 AM
Finally, the long overdue sun shadow graph.  Notice that the green line represents 2015, and prior to March 5, 2015, I was getting the sun's noon shadow length mainly on soltice, and maybe equinox, but nothing in between.  At some point I began to realize the value of this stuff--daily if possible, depending on the sun.

And now we finally have data from four years to plot --all on the same graph.  It's been so overdue, that another one or two can probably be constructed, beginning today.  So for now, enjoy.  Notice how the line for 2015 seems quite far removed from those of 2016, 2017 and 2018. 

One way to read that part of the graph is that in 2015, the sun's shadow was "later" in reaching a certain length.  Another way to state this is that, on a given date, for example March 5, notice that the 2015 shadow length was 66.125", whereas the other three years of 2016, 2017 and 2018 were all very close together, between 60" and 60.75".  So, in 2015, the sun appeared slightly lower on the horizon, (longer shadow means lower on horizon) at least on March 5.

Another thing to notice in this series, is that 2017 and 2018 are nearly in lockstep!  More to follow....

You're welcome.  Funny thing, it's always exciting, anticipating what kind line will arise with each new graph.  I have all these figures on paper, but don't see the picture until plotting them.  Also, it was surprising to total the number of graphs and discover there have been 13 already!

Stay tuned for one or two more fairly soon.

Here is graph #15 which runs from around March 10 through around April 10.  One can see the red line for 2015 near the top left is widely separated from the lines for the other three yearss of 2016, 2017, and 2018, but notice that around late March, i.e., shortly after equinox, it crosses the other lines and then runs on the "opposite" side.

After posting this today, I'll finish work on graph #16, as it is nearly done also.  For newcomers, the graph compares four years of data of the length of noon sun shadow, a figure used in calculating the sun's apparent elevation above the horizon.  Stay tuned for #16.

How would you interpret the crossover Ilinda?
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on May 04, 2018, 08:16:06 PM
How would you interpret the crossover Ilinda?
I was hoping someone else noticed that.  I mentally picture the solar system and like they often show in graphical form in astronomy books, as the earth moves from lengthening days to shortening days, which happens abruptly on summer solstice, as it is going around the sun. 

But then try to imagine what is happening as each year passes, and the only major thing that is different is whatever is in the sky that we are all capturing in photographs!  It is obviously affecting our planet.  But because there are apparently so many objects in the system, it is nearly impossible to calculate or guesstimate a trajectory at any given time.

But I'm thinking that in 2015, it was still inbound, thus the forces against or toward the earth are/were different than they are now. There are many things to ponder, but I must mention I did have a dream within the last week and it was about recordkeeping and how I had to start something new because I kept running out of room, or...I need to go read exactly what I wrote, but when I wrote it, I knew it was about THIS recordkeeping.  More to follow and if anyone else has ideas, I'm all ears.

Hopefully that wasn't a garbled answer!

Post by: ilinda on May 05, 2018, 08:28:33 PM
On reflection, I could have been more to the point:  it appears something changed slightly during the week after spring equinox in 2015. 

However, the graph I'm working on now will show yet another twist, and this time it's with the data for 2018.  I suppose every graph will contain something new because new forces will be situated in different places.  I think that's it in a nutshell.  We're dealing with our known solar system with its known major forces--Sun and moon--and now the newer forces, whose number and identity are only hinted at.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on May 11, 2018, 08:16:19 PM
OK, here's our sun's shadow graph #16 which runs from April 8 through May 11, for the years 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.  During this time period, it appears lines 2015, 2016 and 2017 were gradually merging, so that by early May, there was a lot of overlap.

Readings for 2018 tell a slightly different story.  Note that around April 13, line 2018 crosses line 2016, eventually dipping below the other three on April 17, then crosses the lines again, rising above all of them by April 28, then back down on the 29th, then back up above the others through about May 1 to 10, when it dipped low again.  What does all this mean?  We will wait and see, but for now it appears to be rockin' 'n rollin' a bit, which translates into this:  for this time period in 2018, the sun's noon shadow appears to be less smooth than those of the other three years.  In other words, first it's shorter, then longer, then shorter, etc.

We will just have to continue to watch this, perhaps a bit more closely than before.  Ok, stay tuned.  Am posting two pics, nearly identical.

The purple line from 2018 seems to have a defined wobble to it, compared with previous years.

Thanks for posting Ilinda!
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on May 13, 2018, 06:52:24 PM
Hard to believe it's been a month since posting these readings.

Recent observations:
March 30, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right on cornerstone base (csb).
April 4, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 29.5" right on csb.
April 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.615" right on csb.

New observations:
April 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.0" right on csb.
April 18, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.875" right on csb.
April 28, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right csb corner.
April 29, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right csb corner.
May 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ cellar door on right, where door meets right door jamb.
May 7, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right on right door jamb.
May 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on right door jamb.
May 11, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" right on right door jamb.
May 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ cellar door on right , where door meets right door jamb.

It is definitely time to drag out the cardstock display to see "where we are going", as it appears there may be some irregular movements.  Stay tuned for an updated cardstock pic.

In all of this, I noticed a mistake I had made in lifting data from my field notes for April 4, 2018.  I have correctly listed it here as 29.5" right on the csb., rather than the original 9.5", and in a few minutes will be editing the original post, using a different color of text for clarity.

The past few days have been frustrating for gathering data.  The days have been partly sunny if you're an optimist, or partly cloudly if a pessimist.  It seems that as noon approaches (actually 1 PM CDT because I always keep my clock/watch set to daylight time), a big puffy cloud will roll in and often it will almost allow a little sun to peek through.  Frustrating to say the least.

Recent observations:
April 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.0" right on csb.
April 18, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.875" right on csb.
April 28, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right csb corner.
April 29, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right csb corner.
May 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ cellar door on right, where door meets right door jamb.
May 7, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right on right door jamb.
May 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on right door jamb.
May 11, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" right on right door jamb.
May 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ cellar door on right , where door meets right door jamb.

New observations:
May 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cornerstone base (csb).
May 20, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 35.0" right on csb.
May 23, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 33.5" right on csb.

We seem to be tracking previous years' paths, although there is more to this than which direction the north-south polar axis points.  I have perused the latest cardstock and realize we are so close to summer solstice that I'll wait to post the then-updated cardstock showing north-south lines on winter and summer solstices.

One thing that is changing and is apparent from the current multi-year, sun-shadow graph, as the almost erratic path of the 2018 data suggests that the Earth is sort of "bobbing" back and forth in the north-to-south or south-to-north direction.  As can be seen from earlier graphs, each one covers about a month at most, so the next one will be ready for publication soon, so stay tuned.  In the meantime, am posting the cardstock for solstice readings and as you know, the cornerstone base (csb), cellar door, etc., are all on it for visual reference.  Stay tuned!

Post by: ilinda on June 05, 2018, 04:52:39 PM
As the days pass and we approach summer solstice, we can see how the north-south line is "moving" slowly to the west, (left) as is seen in the shrinking distance measured from the left corner of the csb.  Soon the line may match or nearly match that of previous lines for solstice, which if one studies the cardstock, can be seen in the vicinity of the left corner of the csb, but not exactly at the corner.  I plan to re-photograph the cardstock after adding the 2018 Summer Solstice reading, and hope to produce a higher quality (more light especially) picture.

Recent observations:
May 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cornerstone base (csb).
May 20, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 35.0" right on csb (as measured from left corner).
May 23, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 33.5" right on csb.

New observations:
May 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 32.125" right on csb.
May 30, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.75" right on csb.
June 1, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 24.25" right on csb.
June 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.25" right on csb.

The parameter that is changing noticeably, in comparison to previous years, is the length of the Sun's noon shadow, as will be seen in our next four-year graph, coming within a few weeks.
Stay tuned.....

The latest four-year graph comparing sun's noon shadow length for the years 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 is below.  For now, this "new and improved" OS for Mac (High Sierra) will not allow any iPhone or even Canon stand-alone camera to upload pics to the computer.  The only pics now uploadable to this so-called new and improved OS are on one of the oldest cameras we have, from around 2000!  Thus the pics look grainy compared the modern-day resolution.  But it is what it is.

The graph runs from May 1 on far left, through June 13, far right.  The purple is 2018, black, 2017, blue, 2016, and red is 2015.   One can see how data for 2018 is as "herky-jerky" as tha of 2017, perhaps slightly more.  Enjoy the ride, brothers and sisters.

I suspect it's because the iPhone is only activated as a camera. 

To address your question, I suspect that "they" want total information on us, and by disallowing iPhones that are not used as phones, they prevent information flowing that they can not as easily see.  For example if this iPhone is activated as a phone, then they will have 100% total access to every single thing that is done on the phone.  Right now they don't.  My best guess.

Probably I just need to get something like your Canon Elph.  Hubby has a little Nikon Coolpix which looks about the same size.  Great for pockets.  But I notice yours has 10X magnification which is better. 

To move pics to computer, do you use usb cable or insert memory card into a card reader that is hooked to computer?
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: R.R. Book on June 19, 2018, 03:41:15 AM
The computer tower comes with a built in memory card drive.  The camera has a little door that opens, revealing both the memory card and the card-shaped battery.  The memory card, which is spring-loaded, is released by pushing on it, then plugged directly into the memory card drive of the computer tower (there is no pigtail).

If you then click on "This PC" or "My Computer" or whatever icon is on your desktop, or locate the file if not on desktop, there will be a special file that only appears when the card is plugged in.  Clicking on that will offer a list of batches, or albums, of photos taken on different dates, unless you keep the card wiped clean for more memory.  Clicking on the bottom batch file will reveal the latest individual photos, allowing you to decide which ones to keep, which to delete, and which to crop with a tool such as Paint.

Some of the fun filters that the camera uses, if you choose that setting, include posterization (looks cartoonish), brown-scale (looks antiqued), cameo (surrounds pic in a frame with fading edges), B & W (can be gray-scale or have dramatic contrasts), vivid scale (colors become more intensified), etc.  In addition, if you point in one direction, the camera will find a few specific details to zoom in on which you might not have thought to focus upon, with surprising effects.  Example: I photographed a singing convention once and when I pointed the camera and clicked, the camera all by itself chose to notice and take a neat soft cameo of a pair of elderly hands holding a very well-worn and loved song book, which spoke volumes. :)

Tomorrow is Summer Solstice, but forecast is for rain, which means clouds, which means no visible sun.  Still, I did get a reading today which is thisclose to that longest day.
Recent observations:

May 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 32.125" right on csb.
May 30, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.75" right on csb.
June 1, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 24.25" right on csb.
June 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 18.25" right on csb.

New observations:
June 6, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 11.0" right on csb.
June 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 12.5" right on csb.
June 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.125" right on csb.
June 14, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" right on csb.
June 15, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.875" right on csb.
June 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.75" right on csb.
June 20, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at left corner of csb, cornerstone base.

With the north-south line at noon aligning with the left corner of the cornerstone base, we can see in the attached pic that we are pointing "in the vicinity" of where we seem to be about every Summer Solstice, at least as far as direction at noon.

Very soon I'll be posting another four-year graph of sun's shadow length, as we have enough data now, that I can just apply current data to previous graphs.  That is, we have enough graphs now that we have some with the full month (approximately) of data for each of 2015, 2016, and 2017; so now all that is needed to add the 2018 data to that older graph.  Saves a lot of my sitting hunched over a new sheet of graph paper, clutching a ball point pen and ruler, etc., and hoping not to make too many mistakes that WhiteOut can't cover.

Plus, if I can maneuver the graph papers properly, I can align the month before and the month after Summer Solstice graphs, so that they appear as one sheet, and  we will have a rather stunning display.  This might require some photographic creativity as well.  Stay tuned.

Editing, a few minutes after posting:

Since we had a sunny period at mid-day on this Summer Solstice, I did get a reading today, and added that north-south line to our solstice map.
(Pics taken with hubby's Nikon Coolpix S3700).

One can see that our 2018 Summer Solstice reading is "in the vicinity" of previous ones.  Today and yesterday, the north part of the north-south line pointed exactly at the left corner of the cornerstone base (csb) as seen in the pic.  This latest cardstock picture now replaces the older, outdated one.

Also, noted is the December, 2017 reading, as that may have been inadvertently missed (not posted) six months ago; the December, 2017 reading co-incides well with the lines for December, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, but deviates greatly from December 2011 or 2012.

My second post today is the three graph overlay, which gives a better "bigger picture" of Sol's noon shadow length, as this graph covers several months.  It can easily be seen how the length of the sun's noon shadow on today's Summer Solstice does coincide well with those of 2015, 2016 and 2017.  It can also be seen how, as we move farther away in time from solstice, the "opportunity" for variances seem to increase.

The great thing about this three-graph picture, we will be able to observe any near-future changes, while comparing them to those just prior to solstice.  As mentioned before the length of the Sun's noon shadow is used to calculate Sol's apparent elevation above the horizon.

 Enjoy and stay tuned for more.....

East/West Wobble

http://zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue613.htm

The East/West tilt of the daily Earth Wobble has gotten so extreme that twilight can at times be seen hours before the appointed hour in Europe and the N American continent. An observer in the UK reported the early light of dawn at 2:00 am recently, and I, Nancy in Wisconsin, recently observed the twilight bright enough to read a book at 9:22 pm. Such is the tilting of the N Pole to the right and left during the daily Earth Wobble. A Crop Circle at Gulkevichsky, Russia (Sochi) on June 19 depicted this Wobble Tilt.

ZetaTalk Insight 6/30/2018: This beautiful and quite legitimate design laid at Sochi is showing what the daily Earth wobble is doing to this part of the world. The Figure 8 of the wobble tilts first to the right and then to the left as the day passes. This tilt has lately become extreme, such that the Sun appears to be coming up hours early in Europe and again lingering in a delayed twilight at dusk in the N American continent. During both tilts the N Pole of Earth has a lower latitude, the Earth somewhat laid on its side, thus more sunlight reaching what would otherwise be considered northern latitudes.

Sochi experiences both the right and left tilt of the wobble. The clash causing this wobble is also depicted by the normal direction of the planets in the inner Solar System on the left, a counterclockwise orbit, and the direction that Nibiru assumes on the right, a clockwise direction. The result is shown below in the design, where an orbit around the Sun normally has a relatively peaceful path, the presence of Nibiru has caused reverberations, an attempt by the Earth to escape the magnetic slam of Nibiru and a bounce back into position by the distressed Earth.

Fascinating.  Is it their normal "moo"?  Our neighbor at around this time of year separates some of the new calves from the moms, too soon in my opinion, and there is a lot of bawling by the moms in emotional distress, calling for their babies.  But this is not a dairy herd, so maybe there's no comparison.  Still, very interesting observation.

Summer solstice has come and gone, so our next landmark will be the "turning point", that point on our test site where the north-south pointing shadow stops its westward or to-the-left migration, and begins to once again move to the right, or eastward. 

I looked back over 2016 and 2017 data and noted that the turning point, or turn-around point on our cornerstone base is/was approximately 12 or 13" left of the left corner.  On one of those two years it was around July 16 that the north-soth shadow line stopped migrating left, and began its rightward movement again.  So, this year we will be watching closely to see how our 2018 data compares--now that we have some older data for comparison.

Recent observations:

June 6, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 11.0" right on csb.
June 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 12.5" right on csb.
June 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.125" right on csb.
June 14, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" right on csb.
June 15, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.875" right on csb.
June 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.75" right on csb.
June 20, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at left corner of csb, cornerstone base.

New observations:
June 21, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at left corner of csb.
June 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.125" left on csb.
July 1, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.625" left on csb.
July 2, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.5" left on csb.

The location of these data points can be seen in the attached pic, as the cornerstone base is fairly obvious, and although only solstices are shown, one can visualize moving left from the left corner of the csb.  Stay tuned for more data.

Many days we have a lucky streak, as it will be mostly cloudy, then the clouds will part a few minutes around noon, just long enough to get a good reading, then clouds will roll in to cover the sky once again.  So for right now, we're lucky in being able to capture these oi

Recent observations:
June 21, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at left corner of csb.
June 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.125" left on csb.
July 1, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.625" left on csb.
July 2, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.5" left on csb.

New observations:
July 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" left on csb, cornerstone base.
July 6, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.75" left on csb.
July 7, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.125" left on csb.
July 9, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.25" left on csb.

In the attached pic, one can see these current readings would lie to the left of the June 21, 2014 Solstice reading.  Stay tuned....

I'm not sure if I'm interpreting what you say correctly, so maybe this will help:  the shadows, or lines representing shadows around the left foundation corner represent summer solstice lines, whereas those to the right are for winter solstice, or as close to solstice as possible.

I'm attaching "closer-up" view of the solstice lines.  (Edit:  the close-up wasn't any closer than the original pic, I discovered after posting.)

Post by: ilinda on July 10, 2018, 08:02:04 PM
Here's an addendum, though, to your question, RR.

While I don't know about the "retrograde wobble for 2016 and 2017", because my data would not show it (to my knowledge), it does show something else.  At least the data seen in the "Solstice Map" shows something. 

It is my understanding that both Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice should align perfectly, as would be seen in an analemma.  I did one or two analemmas a few years ago, but because of the amount of work, and fact that most people can't or don't relate to the long, narrow figure eight analemma, I stopped plotting them.

But by preparing a "solstice map", I'm "plotting" the key points from an analemma, but omitting all the intervening points.  Now, in a perfect world, I believe the winter and summer solstices should align, and when they do not, either the creator/data gatherer has made one or more errors, or there is a skew in the pattern of Earth's motions.

I believe my SolsticeMap shows that on the winter solstice the north-south line of the Earth's axis is skewed slightly east, and that on the summer solstice, the north-south line of Earth's axis is skewed slightly west. 

This means if I plotted an analemma using data from any of the years of 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, or 2017, we would see a long thin, nearly vertical, figure eight, but one with the upper part pointing slightly to one side, and the lower part pointing slightly to the opposite side.  In other words, a slightly skewed figure eight.  I believe when all is normal, the Earth's analemma is truly vertical.  Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Actually I don't feel qualified to discuss a unipolar earth because am not sure how that would work.  Thinking of the north and south poles of any magnetic body, whether it's a little magnet you hold in your hand, or a huge cosmic object such as Earth, don't there have to be opposing or opposite "sides"? 

I really don't have the answer to that, as I'm not even sure what exactly they mean.  Did do a search and found a few links, one of which is:
http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0022-3727/11/5/020/pdf

Some links talk of earth as a unipolar generator, others slightly different slant on unipolarity.  If someone figures it out, we're all ears.

Post by: ilinda on August 02, 2018, 09:13:51 PM
Sun shadow data through August 1 is now finished, as seen in tonight's post.  Notice that the last few days of readings this year show that the sun's noon shadow is shorter than in the other years for which we have data, i.e., 2015, 2016, and 2017, so that means that the sun appears a bit higher in the sky than in recent years.

Another trend I noticed recently is that, especially in the past year, that around the time of summer solstice, the longest days of the year, the sun's noon shadow length for each of the four years is remarkably close to that of the other years.  Conversely, looking at the sun's noon shadow length for the days around winter solstice shows a noticeable difference.

Around the time before, during, and after winter solstice, we notice the seemingly erratic behavior of the sun's noon shadow, as it goes from lower one day to higher the next day, and then more ups and downs suggesting "herky-jerky" behavior.

My thoughts on why summer solstice seems so normal, whereas winter solstice readings suggest not-so-normal movements relate to the distance Earth is from the Sun.  Around summer solstice, the Earth is approximately the farthest from the sun than at any point in its travels around the sun.  And, importantly, the reason I believe the seemingly erratic behavior of the Earth around winter solstice time is the Earth's proximity to the sun, being closer to the sun than at any other time during the year.

Why would that be?  Well, if all the pictures and videos we are seeing are credible, and the information we've received from Carlos Ferrada, Dr. Harrington,  and a few other researchers is fairly accurate, then there is a grouping or constellation of objects moving through our Solar System as I type, and you read, this.  One or more of the bodies or objects in that system has mass, and one or more most likely has a magnetic field, or electromagnetic field.  Mass and/or magnetic field of one or more bodies or objects can affect other objects or bodies, for example by exerting force upon other bodies, whether pushing or pulling.

So it makes sense to ponder that when Earth is closest to the Sun, it is also closer to the system that appears to be at or near perihelion as it travels around and behind our Sun, before soon heading outward once more.  If all this conjecture conjures up an accurate reflection of our status, then as we head toward another winter solstice, we should see even more "herky-jerky" behavior as the Earth will appear (at least on paper) to be bobbing up and down more than ever, as we approach closer and closer to not only the Sun, but the PX system.  Stay tuned...

Yes, in winter, around January 3, distance between Earth and Sun is about 3 million miles or 5 million km closer than around July 7 when the distance is farthest.

Here is one link:
https://www.space.com › Science & Astronomy

Oct 18, 2017 - Earth's closest approach to the sun, called perihelion, comes in early January and is about 91 million miles (146 million km), just shy of 1 AU. The farthest from the sun Earth gets is called aphelion. It comes in early July and is about 94.5 million miles (152 million km), just over 1 AU.

I probably should have clarified a bit more.  The approximately 23.5 degree tilt of the Earth's axis remains the same throughout its orbit around our sun, Sol.  It is the actual physical distance between the two bodies, Sun and Earth, that gradually changes during the course of our annual revolution.

So while closest to the sun in January, our axial tilt causes it to be colder in the Northern Hemisphere, and warmer in Southern Hemisphere, and in July, that same 23.5 degree tilt, in opposite direction, causes a warmer North, and colder South.

Hope this helps.  It also helps to place a globe on a tabletop around a central sun (lamp or whatever), and slowly move that globe in a circle around the "sun", and you can better see how tilt plays a role in seasons and obviously temperature.

In observing the slow back-and-forth apparent migration of our north-south polar axis, I can see we are finally back to pointing directly at the left corner (previously #28) of our cornerstone base.   It's just a landmark, but of no greater or lesser significance than any other point in between the farthest left or right.
Recent observations:
July 22, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" left on cornerstone base, csb.
July 24, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.75" left on csb.
July 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" left on csb.
July 26, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" left on csb.

Latest observations:
August 1, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" left on csb.
August 2, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.875" left on csb.
August 3, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" left on csb.
August 4, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" left on csb.
August 6, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" left on csb.
August 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ left corner of csb.
 
Interestingly, last winter seemed the longest I can ever remember, and this summer seems to have fewer cool-down periods, and daytime temperatures seem to hover in the 90's most days.  However, it is ridiculous to complain when viewing and reading about the largest fires in California's known history.

It will be a few weeks before another graph of sun shadow length is posted, as now the curve is less steep, thus one page can contain many more data points than the periods near solstices.  Pic of cornerstone base attached.  Stay tuned.....

Finally sunny today and a "clear" reading, as the two days previous were hazy, causing me to squint just to get readings.

Recent observations:
August 1, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" left on csb (cornerstone base).
August 2, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.875" left on csb.
August 3, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" left on csb.
August 4, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" left on csb.
August 6, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" left on csb.
August 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ left corner of csb.

New observations:
August 11, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ left corner of csb.
August 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right on csb.
August 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right on csb.
August 15, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.25" right on csb.  (cloudy)
August 22, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.5" left on csb. (hazy)
August 23, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.75" right on csb. (hazy)
August 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.875" right on csb.

Looking at these August readings, it appears the north-south line had been slowly migrating right, or east, as it normally would do at this time of year, then readings on Aug. 22 and Aug. 25 are not conforming to the pattern.  It is possible I erred on those two days.  It is also possible that those are rather accurate readings--as accurate as the others, in view of my rather primitive methods, although I try my utmost to be as accurate as possible. 

The difference between Aug. 22 and Aug. 23 readings seem huge, but while the corner of the csb is a normal 90 degree angle, it is not situated in such a way that readings to the left are symmetric with those of the right.  In other words, 4.0" left on the csb (from the csb corner) and 4.0" right on the csb (from the csb corner) do not define an equal number of degrees due to the fact of where the north-south line originates.  Hope this clarifies and is not gibberish!

In spite of the seeming erratic nature of these several readings, there is no new pattern yet.  In the attached pic, "SolsticeMap1", #28 is the left corner of our csb, cornerstone base.  Within a couple of weeks, at most, another four-year graph of the sun's noon shadow length will be posted.  Stay tuned.

Finally the latest four year graph for Aug.1 through Sept. 7 (years 2015 through 2018), showing the noon sun shadow length, is finished and attached.

Note that the 2018 line runs lower on the graph than the year 2016, on every point, and that most of the points on the graph are higher than those of 2018.  The higher a data point is on the graph, the lower in the sky it is.  Remember, that the length of the sun's noon shadow will lengthen as the sun is lower and lower in the sky.

I have already begun placing the data points for recent days on the next graph, so stay tuned.  Also, autumn equinox is coming soon, so we'll have another bit of data for comparison with previous years and with what is considered normal.

I had to reduce the pic in size, as I posted all of this yesterday only to have it disappear into the ether never to be found again!

In a few days we will be at a point in time where the length of daylight hours is equal to night hours, called equinox, in this case Autumnal Equinox. 

In the meantime, we do have a few readings.
Recent observations:
August 26, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 16.375" right on cornerstone base, csb.
August 28, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 19.5" right on csb.
September 3, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 27.5" right on csb.

New observations:
September 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 34.0" right on csb.
September 14, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.25" right on right door jamb.
September 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" right on right door jamb.
September 18, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.75" right on concrete block wall.

Our data generally parallels that of years past, regarding where the north-south line is oriented, at least as long as I have been gathering year-long data.  As I've mentioned before, early on beginning in 2011, I was only gathering solstice data, not realizing the importance of all the dates in between!

Picture attached for ease of ascertaining where we are "pointing" now.  Stay tuned for more data.

Autumn equinox came and went, but cloud cover prevented me from getting any readings.   So the next major landmark date will be winter solstice.
Recent observations:
 
September 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 34.0" right on csb.
September 14, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.25" right on right door jamb.
September 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" right on right door jamb.
September 18, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.75" right on concrete block wall.

New observations:
September 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 19.5" right on concrete block wall.
September 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on add-on board (AOB).
September 28, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.625" right on AOB.
September 30, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed at junction of AOB with concrete block wall.
October 3, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" right on AOB.
October 8, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" right on AOB.

I have another four-year sun-shadow-length graph completed, and wil take pic, and post it ASAP.  In the meantime, anyone can locate the current "pointing position" of our north-south line by looking at the attached photo.

Finally an update of our four-year, noon-sun-shadow-length graph, showing approximately one month worth of data, as that's about all that will fit on one page.

As we approach winter solstice, still a couple of months away, we will keep in mind how, around that time of year when the Earth is closest to the Sun, it does appear the readings show a lot more erratic, back-and-forth movements.  But now in October, things still appear fairly normal, even though not one set of annual data points matches any other!  But they are close.

As soon as we get more sunny days, I'll post more readings showing the direction the north-south line points.

Today's sky looked like a winter sky--totally dense blue and beautiful with not a trace of chemtrails or chemclouds.

Recent observations:
September 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 19.5" right on concrete block wall.
September 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.0" right on add-on board (AOB).
September 28, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.625" right on AOB.
September 30, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed at junction of AOB with concrete block wall.
October 3, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.75" right on AOB.
October 8, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" right on AOB.

New observations:
October 11, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.25" right on AOB.
October 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.875" right on AOB.
October 21, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.15" right on AOB.

On another note, our four-year graph showing Sol's noon shadow length for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 is getting so steep (as it does at this time of year) that the line is almost off the top of the page, and I'm nearly ready to post the latest update.  Stay tuned a few days...
In the meantime, you can see by the attached pic where our north-south line currently points, on the "add-on board".

No postings for over a month because of computer being down.  Now am trying to get accustomed to new computer, new OS, and feeling like a total newbie, so bear with me while I "learn how to use a computer all over again!"

New observations:
October 22, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.625" right on Add-on board (AOB).
October 27, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" right on AOB.
October 28, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.0" right on AOB.
October 30, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on AOB..
November 6, 2018 noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.75" right on AOB.
November 7, 2018 noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.0" right on AOB.
November 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.0" right on AOB.
November 13, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" right on AOB.
November 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.25" right on AOB.
November 21, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right on AOB.
November 24, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 11.5" right on concrete.

As soon as I figure out how to upload pics in this new system, I'll do so.

In the meantime, I have two additional pics to post, showing two additional four-year graph comparisons of the length of Sol's noon shadow, plotted against date.  These cover much of October and November sun shadow measurements at noon, which tell us about the apparent elevation of the sun in the sky.

Further, a third four-year graph should be complete with another week or so.  So stay tuned for more pictures and data, and bear with me while I learn the computer ropes all over again!

OK, this is my first attempt to upload pics from a different computer running different OS  and using a different picture app, so fingers are crossed.

This first pic shows approximately a month of data of our four-year comparison graph, showing Sol's noon shadow length in inches, plotted against date.  The four lines on the graph represent 2015 through 2018.  (I may need to edit this if this doesn't work well.)

Edit:  This graph runs from October 1 through about November 27, and because the graph is not on this desk, I cannot give more detail, except to note that the data for 2018 is tracking more closely with that of 2015, than the other years.  Plus will try to have better lighting for future photos, and it should be noted that the next pic will be of this same quality. 
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on November 28, 2018, 06:16:35 PM
This is hopefully the last pic displaying such  poor quality lighting.  Apologies.  Also, since I don't have the original on this desk, it is difficult to give many details, other than to say that this is the latest four-year graph pic that is complete, i.e., the lines have moved off the graph (onto the next one).

This graph shows more clearly that the sun's apparent elevation in this time period for 2018 is much more like that of 2015 than of either 2016 or 2017.

I hope to have improved picture lighting for future pics.  Stay tuned for the next four-year graph, as one  I am currently generating is nearly a complete graph itself and should be ready for photographing and posting within a week or so.  Thanks for your patience!

Hard to believe but we are getting very close to Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, and also the time of Earth being closest to Sol.

Hope to get new pics soon of our test/data site, as all previous pics are stored on broken computer.  In the meantime, and just for the record, our four-year graph showing noon sun shadow length, plotted against date, will be ready to post on approximately Dec. 13.

Stay tuned for more data and newer pics.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on December 12, 2018, 06:01:10 PM
Am posting the latest four-year "Sun's Noon Shadow" graph a day early because, although the graph has space for one more day, 12-13-18, it is slated to begin raining early tomorrow morning and thus, no sun, and no data point for 12-13-18.

The first pic shows the current graph covering November 11, and ending December 13.  The second pic shows the current graph overlapped on the left edge of the following graph, which runs from December 1 through January 4.  One reason for overlapping the two graphs is to show the rather smooth curve of data points in the days since November 11 to now, and at the same time the "herky-jerky" movements of our plotted lines in the graph that covers Winter Solstice.  Remember, around Winter Solstice, Sol and Earth approach closer to each other than at any other time during the year.  That ALSO means that any object that may be "near" Sol will also be closer to Earth at that time.

Notice in our first graph that the data points for a given day in 2018 were "lower" than those of other years, with one or two exceptions in 2015, at which time they were the same.   "Lower" on the graph means shorter noon shadow, which means Sol is higher in the sky.

Remember, the numbers along the left side of graph represent the sun's noon shadow in inches, and the shorter the shadow  cast by Sol striking our vertical pole, the higher in the sky is Sol.

It will certainly be interesting to see if our data points for the remaining days of 2018 will follow the seemingly chaotic trend set by years 2015, 2016, and 2017. 
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on December 16, 2018, 05:26:17 PM
Finally a sunny day, so here are three more data points, while we await solstice.
Recent observations:
December 1, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.0" right on concrete.
December 5, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.5" right on concrete.
December 9, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.5" right on right door jamb.
December 10, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.0" right on right door jamb.

New observations:
December 11, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.0" right on right door jamb.
December 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right on right door jamb.
December 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right on right door jamb.

And now that we are back at our old, and now repaired computer, we can access some of those needed pics.  It can be seen where our north-south line is pointing now, and it is very close to those positions in previous years, but the most important date will be Winter Solstice, which this year is December 21, so cross your fingers we have a sunny day then.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on December 22, 2018, 05:56:55 PM
Day after solstice and we have sun!  We do have a few more data points which show the direction the north-south line points.  We finally now have Winter Solstice data for the large cardstock, which shows the "bigger picture" of how the north-south Solstice line has moved over the years.

Recent observations:
December 11, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.0" right on right door jamb.
December 12, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right on right door jamb.
December 16, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 2.5" right on right door jamb.

New observations:
December 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right on right door jamb.
December 19, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner where cellar door meets right door jamb.
December 22, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed on cellar door, 3.125" left of the right corner.

Am attaching an updated (as of today) solstice map, which shows our solstice data from 2011, through 2018, and it can easily be seen where the cellar door is, cellar door's right corner, and right door jamb, thus easy to notice that our data for this time of year is right in line with that for years 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017, but not 2011 or 2012.

Interesting that the line fell in the same spot as Solstice-ish of last year. 
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on December 23, 2018, 05:42:17 PM
It appears by just glancing at the solstice map, whether the closeup or overall view, that the north-south line is only "close" to each of the others for any given year.  One thing that needs to be mentioned, though, is that in some years, there were clouds on the exact day of solstice, winter or summer, and sometimes, not only that day but several prior, and several after. 

For example, in 2014, we had sun on December 17 and December 25, but none in between, so I listed each of those two dates.  And it can be seen in the solstice map that the north-south line for solstice would have to be in between those two lines, which means the 2014 winter solstice line might well have been aligned with the two lines for 2015 and 2016. 

Yesterday's reading was one day after solstice, and because the actual data showed the line was a mere 1/8" or 0.125" different from last year's reading on Dec. 20, 2017, I showed them on the same line.  Why did do that?  On a graphic image of this resolution, it would be impossible to draw a second line for 2018, that tracks on the target, by a measure of only 0.125" away from the first.  If the two lines for winter solstice for 2017 and 2018 were drawn precisely as the data shows, the "two lines" would end up appearing to be one smudged and messy line!

I've updated the overall "solstice map summary" as that is solely the winter solstice summary.  Like the cardstock showing both summer and winter solstices, it demonstrates the overall idea that the years 2011 and 2012 were rather aberrant, whereas years 2013 through 2018 are fairly close in the direction our Earth's north-south axis points.

The other data regarding Sol's apparent elevation in the sky is displayed on those four-year graphs I've been posting, and within about two weeks, another one should be ready to post.  If the current pattern it is now showing continues, we might be able to say we are seeing a new trend.  But until this next graph is complete, it is still just guesswork.  Stay tuned!
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on January 02, 2019, 04:12:55 PM
Since we have not had sun in a few days, and 2018 is over, it is time to post our last four-year sun's-shadow graph of the year.  One can see from the graph that the data points for 2018 were less chaotic, and showed more of a nearly bell curve than did those for any of the years 2015, 2016 or 2017.  In other words, the data points yielded a more smoothed-out curve. 

Further, note that most of the 2018 data points were lower on the graph's y-axis than most data points in other years, which means that for much of December, the sun appeared higher in the sky in 2018, than it did in the years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

If this is a new trend, and not just a year-end blip, we'll begin to notice as soon as our 2019 data points begin to roll in.  We will plot them in green on our five-year graph as soon as we accumulate about a month of data.  Stay tuned.....

It has been longer than I thought since posting the north-south direction data, and now it is obvious we are moving (north-south line is pointing) further to the left, or west, as we do at this time of year.
Recent observations:

December 17, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.0" right on right door jamb.
December 19, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed at corner where cellar door meets right door jamb.
December 22, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed on cellar door, 3.125" left of the right corner.

New observations:
December 23, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed on cellar door, 2.75" left of right corner.
December 24, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cellar door.
December 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed on cellar door 1.0" left of right cornerstone base (csb) corner.
December 29, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.25" right on csb.
January 3, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.5" right on csb.
January 5, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 23.0" right on csb.
January 8, 2019, noon CST, north0-south line pointed 20.0" right on csb.

There we have data finishing out 2018 and ushering in 2019.  Within a couple of weeks we'll have a five-year sun-shadow-length graph to help us determine if there is any new trend.  Further, as promised, I'll post, ASAP, data regarding winter solstice and Sol's apparent elevation at that time, and how the elevation compares with that described in astronomy books, i.e., what it should be on solstice.
Stay tuned.

Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on January 11, 2019, 04:05:55 PM
There are two types of data I've been accumulating: 1) north-south line, or direction the north pole is pointing at noon in Northern Hemisphere; and 2) length of noon shadow of Sol, for use in calculating apparent elevation of sun in sky.
 
Attached is a graphic showing the north-south line, (where the north pole pointed) on winter solstices for eight years inclusively, for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.  The attached summary shows that in December 2011 the north pole/north-south line, as my test site, was pointing to an old cedar tree and that represented "north" for that date. 

Then one year later, on December 21, 2012, the north pole/north-south line had moved and was pointing approximately 45 degrees east of the 2011 reading!  I know this sounds unbelievable, but I have conjectured how this could have happened.

Then for the years 2013 through 2018, the north-south line pointed approximately half way between the 2011 and 2012 lines.  My best guess is that where the north-south line pointed in the years 2013 through 2018 is its normal position, or nearly normal, and am guessing that in 2009 or even 2010, it may have been pointing in this middle area where we pointed in 2013-2018.

It could be that any large object or group of objects entering the solar system, and approaching close enough to affect the earth, would have exerted its influence in 2011 by a magnetic push or pull in one direction, then one year later, that object or group of objects would have exerted its magnetic influence in 2012 in an opposite direction.  That would mean, the deviation in 2011 would have only been about 22.5 degrees west from normal, and then a year later, the December 2012 deviation would have been 22.5 degrees east of normal.  That is my best guess as to why 2011 and 2012 are so far from these more recent ones.

The other summary is that of the apparent elevation of Sol in the sky, and what I need to do to summarize that is compile all the graphs (each of which covers approximately one month) into a yearly graph, something RRBook suggested, and which I plan to do.  That yearly composite will show how the sun's apparent elevation varies from year to year.

 As soon as I calculate Sol's apparent elevation above horizon for winter solstice, 2018, will post it.  Further, as soon as I can create a yearly composite of sun-shadow graphs, will post that as well.

In a nutshell, our north-south line, or the direction the north pole points at noon is remaining stable, and assuming 2013 through 2017 were normal, then this past year was also normal.  Stay tuned.
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on January 12, 2019, 05:50:24 PM
To calculate the apparent elevation of Sol, our Sun,  above the horizon on Winter Solstice, do this:
1) find your latitude
2) add your latitude to Earth's axial tilt of 23.5 degrees*
3) subtract the sum of #1 and #2 from 90 degrees.

In this case, my latitude is 37.55 degrees.  So 23.5 + 37.55 = 61.05 degrees.  Now we subtract 61.05 from 90 to get 28.95 degrees.  This means that in normal conditions, on winter solstice, at this latitude anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, the Sun should appear to be 28.95 degrees above the horizon at noon.

My calculations show a slightly higher apparent elevation for Sol on Winter Solstice 2018:
Because of clouds on the day of solstice, I am using the day after solstice for the length of the sun shadow, so there would be a minuscule error of however much the sun's shadow length changes from Dec. 21 to Dec. 22 (not much).
Here is how I calculate:  the pole against which the sun casts the shadow is 64.75" tall, giving us our "y" data, and the sun's shadow length at noon was 116.25", giving us our "x" data.  Since we know in trigonometry, that "y"/"x" gives us the tangent of the angle desired.  In other words, in a right triangle, the length of the side opposite the unknown angle is divided by the length of the side adjacent the unknown angle, to give us the tangent of this unknown angle.

So, our y/x are represented by 64.75"/116.25", which = 55698.9, which we will round off to 55699.  In the "trig tables" in the back of any trig book, the tangent of 55699 gives us the angle of 29 degrees 3', or approximately 29.05%, meaning the sun was higher on the horizon on this winter solstice at 29.05 deg.', than it would be in a normal year at 28.95 degrees

We do have minor errors due to using the day after solstice data, plus rounding very large numbers, but even without those two "errors", there is still a slight difference between Sol's slightly increased height above horizon this year, and where it "should" be, i.e., slightly lower.

Then for those who want to know how that translates into miles, I went to the USGS site:  https://www.usgs.gov/faqs/how-much-distance-does-a-degree-minute-and-second-cover-your-maps and found that at 38 degrees Latitude in Northern Hemisphere, one degree equals 364,000 feet, or 69 miles. 

* some sources use the more precise figure of 23.44 degrees, but here we use 23.5

(Edited minutes later to correct an incomplete post.)

Can you give us a brief summary (major trends) of what you are seeing in the last  five years of data?

You said brief summary, so that's what I should have done.  In a nutshell, we have two types of data: 1) the direction the north-south line, or polar axis points, and 2) the apparent elevation of Sol above the horizon.

1) The winter solstice at noon, 2011 showed the north-south line pointing at a landmark cedar tree at, and winter solstice at noon, 2012 saw the north-south line pointing approximately 45 degrees east of that cedar tree.

Then from winter solstice at noon, 2013 through winter solstice at noon, 2018, the north-south lines all point almost midway between the lines of 2011 and 2012, and all are essentially in the same orientation.

2) The normal apparent elevation for Sol on winter solstice at noon, 2018, at my latitude should be 28.95 degrees above the horizon.  The calculated apparent elevation for the sun on winter solstice at noon, 2018, at my latitude of 37.55 deg. N, based on sun-shadow length, was 29.05 degrees above the horizon, meaning that this year, the sun was about 1/10 or 0.1 of a degree higher in the sky  than normal.

After weeks of cloudy days, finally we have had a peek at the sun for an hour or less, but luckily, around mid-day.

Recent observations:
December 23, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed on cellar door, 2.75" left of right corner.
December 24, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed @ right corner of cellar door.
December 25, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed on cellar door 1.0" left of right cornerstone base (csb) corner.
December 29, 2018, noon CST, north-south line pointed 30.25" right on csb.
January 3, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.5" right on csb.
January 5, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 23.0" right on csb.
January 8, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 20.0" right on csb.

New observations:
January 24, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.625" right on csb.
January 25, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.0" right on csb.
January 29, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on csb.

In summary, the north-south pole or axis appears to be migrating slowly westward, as it does at this time of year, (more easily seen in an analemma).  But we have something almost as good as shown in the attached pic of the site, including csb, the cornerstone base.

Tomorrow I plan to post the latest four-year graph of Sol's noon shadow length, which will soon encompass five years, as it was in 2015 that I realized the value of data throughout the year, not just on winter and summer solstices, and it was in the first week of March, 2015, that I began measuring the Sun's noon shadow.

We are getting close to the time when our four-year sun-shadow graph will encompass five years of data.  The newly completed graph shows that data points for 2017, 2018 and 2019 are tracking fairly close to each other, while those of 2016 seem to be the "odd man out".  So far, even when it appears there is a new trend in these graphs, the data points and the line they draw seem to veer back into a rather normal position.  In early 2015 I realized the value of gathering these sun shadow lengths for as many days as possible, not just on solstices, but it wasn't cemented in my mind until about March 5 when I began in earnest.  So, on the current graph of today, there is only one data point 2015, on January 1.

I dreamed last year that the current line begins veering off and away from where all other lines are, and that the current line was so far afield that I had to plot the current line on a different paper, however I am very cautious to gather measurements as exact as possible so as not to inject any preconceived notions about where the line would be or could be.

What we are seeing now is just a variation of what we keep seeing, in that none of the lines of data points for any given year lines up with those of any other year, but all lines continue to drift in a state of "nearness" to other lines for other years.   Truthfully, I don't know what all of this data would look like if we didn't have something perturbing the bodies in our solar system, that "something" having been photographed and video'd many, many times, and which most likely constitutes more than one object.

(Edit:  I inadvertently did not label the green line as 2019, as the other lines are marked by year, but in spite of this marginal quality pic, it appears that the green is obvious, as are the blue 2016, black 2017 and purple 2018.)

ilinda,

Thanks you for all your hard work and diligence in collecting and analyzing the data for the last few years, its really quite impressive!  ;)

The data does show the earth is being perturbed by a large astronomical body and does "spur us on" to greater prepping efforts to prepare for what is soon to come..

Maax

It should be mentioned that in spite of the fact that the data I've been gathering shows, for now, seeming normalcy or near normalcy, in Sol's elevation, and also in the direction our north-south line points,  several others have mentioned seeing and reading about other researchers who are finding serious discrepancies in the location of our rising and/or setting sun. 

It is good to keep in mind that my data only reflects what is happening at noon each day, and gives little or no clues about where the sun is rising or setting.  So those who claim major variances between where the sun rises or sets, and where it "should" rise or set could very well be demonstrating the beginnings of some kind of change.

We are almost finished with yet another graph plotting length of Sol's noon shadow, which should be publishable in a week.  In the meantime, we have new data from the direction our north-south pole points.
Recent observations:
January 24, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.625" right on csb.
January 25, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 8.0" right on csb.
January 29, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.125" right on csb.

New observations:
February 1, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.375" right on cornerstone base (csb).
February 3, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.125" right on csb.
February 9, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.625" right on csb.
February 14, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left on csb.

Stay tuned for more data.

As long as the sun's shadow length is changing rapidly, each graph is "shortened" because the lines flow off the page to the next one before an entire month is over.  This is how it is at this time of year.

Note in the current graph, which covers four years, that 2016 appears as the "odd man out", and that 2019 in green is running very close to those of 2017 and 2018.  Note that within a few weeks, we will have a five-year graph, as it was in the first week of March, 2015, that I realized the value of measuring Sol's shadow as often as possible, rather than at winter and summer solstice only.

Stay tuned for more data....

Finally a day with sun.  We have had many days recently with perhaps 5 minutes of sun, and rarely around noon.

Recent observations:
February 1, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.375" right on cornerstone base (csb).
February 3, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.125" right on csb.
February 9, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 1.625" right on csb.
February 14, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.5" left on csb.

New observations:
February 24, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left on csb.
March 4, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at corner of csb.
March 5, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at corner of csb.
March 14, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right (of left corner) on csb.

ASAP, will post the latest 5-year graph showing length of Sol's noon shadow, plotted against date, currently showing a decreasing-length shadow, as days are becoming longer now, as the sun rises higher in the sky, as it will continue to do in the Northern Hemisphere until around Summer Solstice.  For now, "steady as she goes...".  Stay tuned.

With several consecutive sunny days, we have more data.

Recent observations:
February 24, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 0.25" left on csb (cornerstone base).
March 4, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at corner of csb.
March 5, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed exactly at corner of csb.
March 14, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 3.5" right (of left corner) on csb.

New observations:
March 15, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" right on csb.
March 16, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 6.25" right on csb.
March 17, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.5" right on csb.
March 18, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 4.75" right on csb.

At this time of year, after the first week or two in March,we ordinarily see the north-south line slowly and steadily moving eastward again (to the right at our test-gathering site).  But the past few days show something different.  For example, the past three consecutive readings show the line, for now, is moving westward, or to the left, and I do not believe it has done that since I've been gathering data.  We will be watching this closely, with each passing day.  Stay tuned for more data, including the sun's shadow length graph.

In addition to our north-south line pointing data below, we have two additional graphs, depicting the length of Sol's noon shadow, information that can be used to calculate the Sun's apparent angle above the horizon.  These two graphs will be posted as soon as pics are taken and uploaded.

Recent observations:
March 21, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 5.25" right on csb (cornerstone base).
March 22, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 7.0" right on csb.
March 26, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.5" right on csb.
March 27, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 9.25" right on csb.
March 31, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 10.625" right on csb.
April 3, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 11.5" right on csb.

New observations:
April 6, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 13.0" right on csb.
April 10, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 20.5" right on csb.
April 15, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 25.125" right on csb.
April 17, 2019, noon CST, north-south line pointed 26.5" right on csb.

One can see in the attachment approximately where our current location (26.6" right on csb) is on the 36" base.  Stay tuned for the graph pics soon.

These three five-year graphs represent a continuation from post #334.
  DSC 1224:  Feb. 15 through approx. March 15
  DSC 1225:  March 10 through approx. April 10
  DSC 1226:  April 8 through approx. May 11.

As mentioned before the y-axis (numbers along left margin) represent length in inches of the sun's noon shadow, correspondiing with the dates along the bottom of page (x-axis), and it is the shadow length which can be used to calculate Sol's apparent elevation above horizon.

Aside from some of the data points in 2015, much of each year is closely tracking the other years.  I apologize for the marginal quality of the photo, as the newer camera is problematic and refuses to co-operate in moving pics from camera to computer.  And, oops, I noticed I forgot to set the date on the decades-old camcorder, thus each pic is dated the default date of Dec. 31, 1969 (long before the camcorder existed!)

Hope to have a sunny day on summer solstice, as winter and  summer solstice data points seems more important than non-solstice readings because the exact shadow length which should normally be observed on that date is known and easily calculated.  Stay tuned, as updates will follow.

Thanks for sharing this Ilinda!  It's hard to believe the Solstice is already almost here!
Title: Re: Evidence of Earth Axis Shift
Post by: ilinda on June 02, 2019, 01:58:02 PM
Just for the record, and in anticipation of our Summer Solstice reading, here is an easy way to determine what the sun's apparent elevation should be on that day. 

Subtract Earth's declination of 23.55 degrees from your own latitude.  Here at my location in MO it is 37.55 deg. N.  Thus 37.55  -  23.5 =  14.05 deg.  Now subtract that remainder of 14.05 from 90 deg., thus 90  -  14.05 = 75.95 deg.  So if conditions are normal the sun should appear to be 75.95 degrees above the sun at noon on summer solstice at this particular location.

So, assuming we have sun that day, we'll get a reading of Sol's noon shadow, and from that shadow length, (which will be "x" in our formula), we can calculate the apparent elevation of Sol above the horrizon.  The "y" in our formula will be the height of our steel pole, against which the sun casts a shadow, and that value is 64.75".  Our little formula is "y/x", which = 64.75/shadow length.  As soon as we plug in the sun shadow length obtained by observation on summer solstice, we can divide the formula out, giving us the "tangent".  Next we look up in a trig book, in the trig tables in the back, to find what angle corresponds to our own calculated number.  In this way, we can calculate the sun's actual apparent angle above the horizon, in order to determine if the actual angle matches the projected angle (what it should be).
