Retrograde Motion of Mars, Is It Possible On Earth?
During this period time, I mean from 15th November 2007 to 30th January 2008, Mars began to slow its movements until it showed no eastward motion at all. Then, strange as it may seem Mars will begin moving westward through and it will continue to do so until about January 30th, when Mars will once again slow down, halt and then begin moving eastward. This phenomenon will create a vision that on Mars, the sun will rise from the west and sets on east. What actually happens is the Earth moving faster than Mars during the period and so we overtake Mars and pass it. Mars will appear to be moving the opposite direction, a motion we called as retrograde motion. When Mars displays retrograde motion, it appears to etch out a looped path. The loop is because Earth and Mars’ orbits are not in exactly the same plane. This retrograde loop of Mars is a terrific display of celestial geometry. The loops vary from opposition to opposition and the pattern of the loop changes depending on where Mars happens to be in its’ orbit when Earth passes it.
Many relate this phenomenon to events that happened through the history of mankind.
During retrograde period of November 7, 1975 to January 20, 1976, Indonesian forces launched a massive air and sea invasion, known as Operasi Seroja, 60,000 Timorese were dead by mid-February.
During retrograde period of February 20 to May 12, 1982, Argentina was in the midst of a devastating economic crisis and large-scale civil unrest against the military junta that was governing Argentina in the period leading up to the war. The government, headed by President General Leopoldo Galtieri, decided to play off long-festering nationalistic sentiment by launching what it thought would be a quick and easy war to reclaim the Falkland Islands. The ongoing tension between the two countries over the islands increased on 19 March when 50 Argentines landed on the British dependency of South Georgia and raised their flag, an act that is seen as the first offensive action in the war. On 2 April, Galtieri ordered the invasion of the Falkland Islands, triggering the Falklands War. Though initially surprised by the Argentine attack on the South Atlantic islands, Britain launched a naval task force to engage the Argentine navy and air force, and deployed Royal Marines on the ground. After heavy combat, the British eventually prevailed and the islands remained under British control, although as of 2005, Argentina has still not relinquished its claim to the Falkland Islands. The political effects of the war were strong in both countries. The Argentine loss prompted even larger protests against the military government, which prompted its downfall, while a wave of patriotic sentiment swept through the United Kingdom, bolstering the government of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
During retrograde period of March 18 to June 4, 1999, The Kosovo War occurred and inflicted many casualties. Yugoslavia claimed that NATO attacks caused between 1,200 and 5,700 civilian casualties. Human Rights Watch counted a minimum of 500 civilian deaths in 90 separate incidents. NATO acknowledged killing at most 1,500 civilians. The majority of deaths appear to have been within Kosovo itself; there were up to 5,000 military casualties according to NATO estimates, while the Serbian figure is around 1,000. Large numbers of Albanian civilians were also killed, although the exact numbers are unclear.
Like other planets, Retrograde motion is expected to happen on earth as verified by the scientists, soon or later.
In Quran (Chapter 02:Verse258) “Abraham said, Verily! Allah causes the sun to rise from east; then cause it to rise from the west”
In Chapter 06 : Verse158:- “The day (ie. Portents of the hour e.g., sun rising from the west)that some of the signs of your Lord (Allah) do come, no good will it do to a person to believe then, if he believed not before, nor earned good through his faith”.
Guys, I believe that the retrograde motion phenomenon can occur on earth and the sun will rise from west. Let us be prepared and pray to the Almighty that when that time comes, we will be among the one who were blessed.
