This photo of Comet ISON was taken on Sunday morning, November 3. It’s a two-minute exposure made with an eighteen-inch telescope. The comet still is too faint to see with the naked eye, but it is brightening rapidly. We expect it to brighten tremendously as it passes perihelion on November 28. Stay tuned.
Since joining Answers in Genesis at the first of this year, I’ve published six papers in the on-line Answers Research Journal (ARJ). I thought that I’d take this opportunity to let you know about these articles. They are, in the order that they appeared:
- A Further Examination of the Gospel in the Stars: an exhaustive follow-up to my previous paper published 15 years ago. At that time the original source on the subject had been out of print for more than a century, but has since been republished.
- An Analysis of the Dodwell Hypothesis: my evaluation of an idea often espoused by some creationists.
- Bibliography of Creationist Astronomy: an update of a bibliography that Emmitt Williams (a professor that I took classes from) did more than 20 years ago.
- Astronomical Distance Determination Methods and the Light Travel Time Problem: a review that we’ve needed for a long time.
- A Proposal for a New Solution to the Light Travel Time Problem: my proposal for a new solution to the light travel time problem.
- An Evaluation of Plasma Astronomy: my evaluation of another idea often espoused by some creationists.
I have some articles already in press along with a few that I’m currently working on. I expect that I will have a stream of papers in the ARJ for some time.
