Jupiter’s westward movement


Dear Readers of Messiah’s Star

I have uncovered an error in the text of Messiah’s Star in reference to the movement of Jupiter each evening.  The text states in several places that Jupiter moves westward each night, in the field of fixed stars.  This is not correct.  Instead, the text should read that Jupiter moves westward each night from Earth’s perspective.   Specifically, the planet Jupiter is farther in the west each night at pre dawn or post sunset observation, because Earth rotates around the sun eastward more quickly than does Jupiter.

I apologize for this error, and would be happy to send anyone the revised text.  Alternatively, one can wait for the second edition slated for June 17th, 2016.

His Peace!
