It's very interesting to read people noticing Quaoar and UB313 influencing their lives. |
It set me thinking: if someone found a way to cross-reference enough anomalous astrological info from enough people, could that be used to tell astronomers where to start looking for as yet undiscoverd kuiper belt objects?
LOL - I don't think that's possible. You have to ponder the increased difficulties of Astronomy to find such objects, like KBOs: they are fainter than all directly visible and many other stars and they aren't even in the region of the ecliptic for the most time, they also orbit very slowly what makes it quite hard and "tedious" task to screen the whole sky in search for them. Still this has been the method of Brown and others that has lead to so many discoveries. (See the section on the finding of "Xena" at: http://www.gps.caltech.edu/~mbrown/planetlila/ to get the idea). UB313 like many other objects was first photographed long before it was identified as a "planet" through careful search. Honestly I doubt anyone among astrologers can figure out the exact corrdinates where to look for nor I think astronomers would care to follow such indications anyhow.
