"Visually it looked almost like a satellite--just farther away."
08-13-2002 06:49 PM **Minimum distance is now .0006509 AU or about 1/4 the distance to the moon, based upon 515 observations and 7 discards. This has changed from a minimum of approximately lunar distance a week or so ago and there only five more days for revisions. Break out the tin hats ... This could get interesting**.08-14-2002 12:27 PM Reset Panic Mode ... Everyone can go back to sleep. :-) 0.0035223 Nominal 0.0035213 Minimum Both about 330,000 miles or ~ 1.3 x lunar distance ( Look 2/3 of way down for 2002/08/18 ) 602 Observations 7 discarded It looks to me like they may have made a mistake
Caution, have no idea what is seen defined in the solar plasma; could be insignificant. Sleuths?

BARDSQUILL: The figures are jumping all over the place, makes no sense to me.
Friend: me neither...even dates changing
BARDSQUILL: Now these figures:
BARDSQUILL: yesterday the sigma was at .0004+
Friend: think they changin em just to mess with us?
BARDSQUILL: I was told that sigma is a margin of error figure
Friend: yea...sigma usually about standard deviations etc...margin of error
BARDSQUILL: so I went away, whew, yesterday thinking that the 003.3 AU might go up and down a little but not much...
BARDSQUILL: But now this error figure is HUGE
