comment Retrograde motion and Kuiper Belt Objects
A main component of my question is, given constraints like not being able to observe during the daytime, would we be able to see this prograde motion? If the prograde motion only ever occurs when the sun is up or close to up then we will never be able to observe it.

comment What scientific evidence is there to support or refute the Iron Sun Hypothesis?
Scientists thought something similar to what is proposed here in regards to the composition of the sun, until Cecilia Payne, in what has been called the "most brilliant PhD thesis ever written in astronomy" showed that the sun is made mostly of hydrogen.
