Our Friend Vukcevic has sent me an interesting graph with no supporting information on how the curve for ‘Earth’s wobble’ is constructed from the JPL ephemeris. I love mysteries. 🙂
He attaches a suitable health warning.
I would like to make it clear at the outset, it does not appear that correlation is ‘effective’, since signal so obtained does not possess the required energy.
Of course I could be wrong, but for time being it is just an interesting, let’s call it coincidence.
[Update] Just in from the man himself:
Roger, it is not great mystery, but my Byzantine approach to science (blame my ancestors culture and religion; excuses, excuses ..)
Sometime I find out something interesting, and put it on the web, here and there, just in case I fall under No.11 bus…, and again I got my bus pass couple of years ago…
I shall get to point:
I call it a wobble as a shortest and simplest word to use. I had to do my calculations twice and for some parts 3 times to ascertain what is happening here.
Final conclusion is: This is not mechanical wobble in any sense of word!
Lunar, Venus and Mars ephemeredes if added each either individually or as group make a mess or nonsense of whole thing. Neptune makes very little difference, if any not worthwhile bothering with.
So in the graph are included only Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus, all planets with huge magnetospheres. Therefore it has to be a magnetic (or electro-magnetic) wobble, not gravitational (lunar effect would be largest) , and nothing to do with the Chandlers wobble as I understand it.
May I add, I was pleasantly surprised to see good forward agreement with
To all: be critical as you whish, don’t expect too many details, or much further elaboration, until I get down to it to write something more intelligible, but may take time.
