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.

You should include a reference to where you are getting "the latest information."

Do you just want stars in our own galaxy or stars in other galaxies as well?

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.

So, not natural logarithm.

@Py-ser I already did in my original post of the question. To quote myself, "Close to the bottom of page 4 of this article (marked as page 164 in the upper left corner)"

@Py-ser, no the equations are not numbered. It's an inline equation to boot.

comment How do scientists know that a rock found on Earth came from Mars?
As a sidenote, if you go to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., you can actually touch a fragment of a meteorite believed to be from Mars.
