We talked about the Earth precessing like a gyroscope. There is more about this in the screen shots from 11/17-11/21.

This animation shows that it doesn’t matter what order you add vectors in the Head-to-Tail method . . . the resultant is still the same.


An amateur astronomer caught this accidentally in 2012. Jupiter captures another potential earth destroying asteroid that no one even knew was out there.  That visible plume from the asteroid exploding in Jupiter’s atmosphere is about the size of the Earth.   Jupiter is my best friend (sorry Randy). Image 2
