Ecliptic Controversy
May 2004

Venus is not aligned with the Ecliptic, correctly.

I have made accurate measures of Katkam pictures . First I adjusted the correct positions using the tree as reference, then I draw the ecliptics (as SKYMAP). At the end I traced an angle between the sun at the 2 hours and Venus. Per skymap was 122 degree and you can see the difference. But there is another thing : Venus does not stay correctly on the ecliptic, so the position of the earth is not correct, and in the other picture (21:30) I think that the sky is not as my previous picture, but at least 1 mount before (or 2).
