That's fine Neville. What then do astronomers mean when they talk about the pole star precessing?As I understand, it is a quick solution to some kind of problem.

Sorry for the delay. The way the stars should look is almost exactly like the image shown in the lecture, with the pole being the south ecliptic pole and the time period being 1 year. Perhaps I ought to have said in the lecture that the clearest way of proving that this is not the case is the fact that the celestial pole is always in the same place. In fact, this was well known from way before the time of Kopernik, since navigation is based upon it. As for the angle between the pole star and the World at six-monthly intervals, this is indeed extremely small, but is a parallax issue, rather than a rotation axis issue. Regards, Neville. -----Original Message----- From: jack.lewis@xxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thu, 30 Aug 2007 18:23:15 +0100 To: geocentrism@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [geocentrism] Re: Celestial Poles Talk Dear Steven, I watched the video and thought that it explained the differences quite clearly, although I think a spotlight on your dad, standing to one side of the projected display, would do him more justice. There is on thing that I reckon ought to be included, if it is possible, and that would be to show, in the heliocentric model, how the stars would appear to move during one year. Would the angle subtended between the pole star and the earth, 6 months apart, be too small to be seen?
