Check out Jupiter! Next good view will be in 2022.

Cheers,

Never mind Jupiter. 2.5 degrees north of Jupiter is a dim green star. That is the planet Uranus. It's about magnitude 6 and is visible in binoculars. Uisng 7x50 binos ( with a 7 degree field of view) If you put Jupiter in the centre of the field of view, Uranus will be the dim star about 2/3 of the way from the centre to the edge.

There was an experiment with a space mission where they had 2 precision time pieces synced up... Left one on earth and sent one into space... According to the clocks time passed significantly differently... Position to the earth shouldn't cause it but the differences in forces (gravity, magnetism, etc) would be more likely to cause the change... In the triangles there is known anomalies with energy and magnetism... I would put my money on you sailed through some type of a magnetic discharge from the earth... Think solar but energy from the earth... YouTube has loads of videos on this stuff...

Re: Astronomy Group

I'm not sure you're serious but gravity bends space/time as predicted by Einstein's theory of relativity. With an accurate enough measurement of time, as with an atomic clock, at differing gravities we see less time has passed under a stronger gravity field. Magnetism might affect an electric watch but not space/time. The difference in the rate of time from an earth orbit to the surface of the earth isn't measurable with a wrist watch and there is nothing on earth that will cause a measurable change in the passage of time.

Actually there is a noticeable difference in time... Approx 5-7 minutes on a shuttle launch... See it on YouTube! Magnetism is stronger than gravity... I've never had a dead battery speed my watch up like that. Now there are 2 theories eh...
Low battery
Magnetism in the triangle, maybe a boost of juice to the watch eh...

I agree with you 100% and I just realized that we are talking about different things... I'm talking about a watch reading... Not bending of space-time with Einstein and newton...
