RCH: Outright lies ….
Q – Why does the current route ISON seems to deviate slightly from those drawn on the image of the instrument LASCO C3 and published by Apolo11?
R – The orbiter was published as an approach to serve as a guide and not an orbital model made to represent 100% sure the path of the comet during the solar approach.It was only an approximation and ISON (or what’s left of it) is where it should be.
RCH: This is the most blatant demonstration of outright disinformation on ISON I have seen to date:
RCH: The idea that NASA’s pre-perihelion “ISON trajectory diagrams” were only “approximations” is ludicrous; why officially publish ANY “ISON path” at all … if they were NOT intended to accurately represent the flight path of the comet through the SOHO and STEREO spacecraft camera fields-of-view!, so that the general public would know where to look in the released SOHO and STEREO images for ISON?
RCH: And, as you have seen from the Enterprise Mission diagrams I’ve forwarded, the deviation of ISON from the previously published flight path is not “slight” … it is HUGE; in three days, ISON is fully over a MILLION MILES from where it was previously calculated it SHOULD be … if the orbit was “unchanged.”
RCH: “Someone” is demonstrably lying about this .. Big Time.
