Unsung Binaries and de Sitter's Whimsical Images?

Shade Tree Physics

Latest Update 02 Mar 2018.
New or modified material is in bold.

This page presents a collection of stellar images that might be showing binaries where they wern't suspected to be such, and evidence of Ritzian c+v arrival time modulation for binary stars (also not thought to be such). (The time modulation sometimes allows a component of a binary star to be seen on opposite sides of the component's orbit at the same time. In each example the seeing of the detecting instrument is thought to be sufficient to resolve the separated images.

Mira Ceti has been removed from this page because
I now think it is a Eclipsing Common Envelope Binary.

The origin of the rings remains a mystery.
Astronomy Picture of the Day July 5, 1996

The outer rings are faintly
visible in this image.

SN 1987a   Blink Comparator

The mysterious rings are thought to be the edges of semi-spherical expanding shock waves. See SN 1987a as a Possible Ritzian System.

Reported as having two sets of moving X-ray lines.


Sequential false-color radio images of SS-433, made with the Very Large Array, in January, February, March, and April of 1981. (VLA/NRAO). According to the Ritzian hypothesis the features that have been identified as jets would be interpreted as de Sitter images (of a binary component) that are periodically seen simultaneously on opposite sides of the binary center-of-gravity.

"Actually, current thinking points towards the
possibility of a close star. This star's gravitational
influence would alter the flow and direction of ejected gas."
