Dear All, I have just been away for a week and am catching on my forum e-mails. Sorry to hear of R. Bennett's resignation, I respected his scientific input. What would be a reason for the stars' 'abberation'?

Movement of the Sun around its orbit explains the seasons, but the stars (all of them) do exhibit something called aberration, which is best described as being tiny elipses.

According to my knowledge, the positions of the stars don't move all year around relative to Earth, while the position of the Sun does move. So the universe cannot oscillate north-south in a yearly motion; only the Sun can do that relative to both Earth and stars. The Sun can oscillate north-south while orbiting daily around the Earth. The yearly oscillation explains for the seasons. Marc V.
