Check-mate IMO, looks like Nancy's got you debunked. I have repeatedly
examined the Palomar images and have not been able to find anything above
noise at the Jan 19 location. Your Jan 5 image also does not show anything
at that location. You can even see on your painstakingly constructed site:
that the faint star/PX location on your Jan 5 image would extend down into
the top of the middle star (of the tight three star vertical group) that is
just over on the right while the faint star which is shown on the PSS1E and
PSS2R would not extend down into the top of the middle star on the right.
It does not make sense to me that the faint star on the PSS2R (which is of
higher quality than the Jan 5 image) would suddenly becomes larger and
elongate down a few arc seconds as shown on your Jan 5 image over a period
of 12 years. Is it a slow burning super-nova or what?
You and Tholen previously tried to lead me to believe that the reason I was
not seeing an object on the Palomar images (Jan 19 spot location) was
because that depending on filtering that was used could make an object show
up more or less prominently, depending on the colour of the light, than the
NEAT images which are unfiltered. This object shows up on the NEAT images so
very disgrossly well that it makes me wonder just what colour would it have
to be to be completely washed out on all the Palomar images including Red
and Blue. It makes more sense to me that it is in fact a new, moving object
at that location and that the NEAT images have been doctored.
