The Wang Eclipse
Year: 2012 Pages: 4
The Wang eclipse has two bumps in the gravitational curve that have not been explained and therefore are called anomalies. This eclipse happened on March 9 of 1997 and Qien Shen Wang recorded the gravitational acceleration on the surface of the earth during a full eclipse. The results of the measurements are reported in the paper titled ?Precise measurement of gravity variations during a total solar eclipse? . The interesting point of his result is that the visual eclipse is shown in relation to the gravitational eclipse. If the measurements are accurate, we can then determine the speed of gravity relative to the speed of light. Also the two large bumps imply that the mass of the corona is very high. With the proper equations the speed of gravity and the mass of the corona can be determined.

About the Wang eclipse1 year 7 months ago [2012-05-04 09:47:16]
Results from a precision gravimeter experiment in China 1997 demonstrate an assumed gravitational shielding present before and after the eclipse. No (or very small) effect is demonstrated during the eclipse. This is explained by Bob as caused by a very masive corona around the Sun. An alternative interpretation is presented here by means of a compensating effect due to gravitational shielding effecting central parts of our planet. Just before and just after the eclipse gravitational shielding effects exist in peripheral parts of our planet, but not in the gravimeter mass. A more detailed description of this idea will soon be present on my personal NPA page. Regards _____________ John-Erik
