About Rediscovered Astronomy
Welcome to Rediscovered Astronomy. We publish articles on astronomy, space, and aerospace -aeronautics and astronautics alike. We especially have animations of the eight main planets in our solar system. We have released some of the animations to the public domain and we will continue to do so on a limited basis. You can also visit our YouTube channel and embed all animations on your website or non-profit project. Educators have the choice of requesting the animations for educational purposes free of charge; an educator’s email address is required.
A word from the Editor
Ever since I experienced a major solar eclipse in Mexico during my childhood, my interest in astronomy grew. Later in the decade, when I heard the statements of a world renowned astronomer about changes in our solar system, I was to say the least astonished! Unfortunately, his radio interview was not broadcasted on the mainstream media and it is a shame not many had the chance of paying attention. Sadly, most astronomers did not talk about it despite the fact that each one of his predictions have been confirmed and discoveries [which he had predicted] have been announced in the last decade.
Later on, I was never able to track the interview to its original source and copies of it have not been found on the web or anywhere else. So I cannot verify the identity of the astronomer.
I have this to say, people at least need to be paying attention to the stars. Look up at the sky and stand in awe. Space is full of surprises!

Just recently the discovery of 2012 VP113 was announced which along with the already known Sedna, point to a very different outer Solar System. Only time will tell, but it is probable that more Sedna-like bodies will be found and perhaps, something bigger.
