It's taking me way to long to parse this. (Assuming this isn't too necro of a thread that you've forgotten all about it... )Stargate38 wrote:It seems to be in a perfect 7:5 resonance with the secondary star.
I think what 7:5 resonance means is that one object goes around the 'central' star 5 times, in the same time it takes the other to go around 7 times. But for some reason that's not what I'm seeing? Am I confused? (Answer, yes, yes, I am)
I just counted (non-ptolemy and non-lagrangian) as each went around the star, and I didn't see the 7:5 resonance. The blue one went around 7 times, and the star went around... 3-ish times? No dice there.
Then I watched it in Lagrangian, and got this... Woo - seven loops before the blue orbit perfectly lines up!
So I went to Ptolemy and watched... Woo - five loops before the blue orbit matches up!
Five and seven. That's the point at which I started to doubt reality, and threw my cards in with numerologists. Is this a coincidence? Is this why I *should* be seeing 7:5 resonance? Help!
