Zetas RIGHT Again! : Moon Swirl
Prior to July, 1995 ZetaTalk described the
Trailing Moons of Planet X
and again in late Dec, 2001 ZetaTalk stated that the
Moons of Planet X
swirled behind, rather than orbit, Planet X, due to the periodic rapid
passage it took it passing one of its suns. On April 23, 2002 the
New York Times reported that when asteroids were discovered to have moons,
or were of relatively equal size to each other, this was the behavior.
Why would such a moon pattern perpetuate itself?
Does Planet X not come to a virtual stop at the
mid-point between its two foci? Having established
a swirl behind the planet, the moons have two
factors preventing a return to the normal orbital
pattern of moons around a planet. First, their swirl
perpetuates itself. The speed is dictated not only by
the normal rotation around a gravitational master
that attractants in the vicinity would create, it is
dictated by the need to move away from the other
moons in the swirl. Second, the larger moons in
the cluster are perpetually trying to reach a closer
proximity to their planet, the point where the
repulsion force between the moon and its planet
creates a stalemate. Being the larger moons, they
push smaller moons away from their path, but this
pushing action, in space, has the effect of causing
them both to move, thus not only increasing and
perpetuating their swirling motion, but also pushing
the larger moon away from the planet it seeks to
come closer to.

Abundance of Cometlike Objects With Moons Stuns Experts
The New York Times
April 23, 2002
Even small cometlike bodies at the edge of the solar
system often have companion moons, to the surprise
of astronomers who cannot yet explain how such
tenuous gravitational pairings formed. Writing in the
current issue of the journal Nature, a team of
American and French astronomers describe the
looping elliptical orbits of 1998 WW31, a small icy
clump 4.3 billion miles from the Sun, and its moon. ...
Dr. Christian Veillet of the Canada-France-Hawaii
Telescope in Kamuela, Hawaii, noticed that 1998
WW31 appeared elongated, like a blurry peanut.
Comparing their images with those taken earlier,
they found that the shape of the peanut changed
over time, suggesting the motion of a moon around
1998 WW31. The astronomers announced the
discovery last year, the first known around a Kuiper
Belt object, ....
With help from new photographs by the Hubble
Space Telescope, the same team of astronomers
has now mapped out the trajectories. Roughly the
same size, 1998 WW31 is estimated at 75 to 90
miles wide; its moon is 60 to 75 miles wide and the
two twirl around each other in a slow, highly
elliptical dance. At their closest, they pass 2,500
miles from each other. At their most distant, they
are 25,000 miles apart. They take 570 days to
revolve around each other. ... Astronomers once
thought the gravitational pull of small bodies like
asteroids and comets to be too slight to hold onto
moons. In 1994, they were astonished when
photographs from NASA's Galileo spacecraft
revealed a tiny moon circling the asteroid Ida.
A handful more moons have been discovered since
among the thousands of asteroids between the orbits
of Mars and Jupiter. ...
Low-speed collisions between two Kuiper Belt
objects may dissipate enough energy to allow the
two to go into orbit around each other. A collision
could also split one of the objects into a pair. "Then
the details after that are hazy," Dr. Jewitt said.
