Immanuel Velikovsky believed that. two planets----Mars and Venus----actually spun out of the orbits located on eithe side of the Earth and had a battle [or a love affair] in the sky. However, it is impossible for two planet in their own orbits, to jump across another orbital planet----our Earth----and then return to their own orbits safely.
But it was only Earth that saw the star gods change their positions in the sky----in other words; our own orbit was jolted so that humans could see that constellation positions had changed and new constellations had replaced the more familiar ones.
The Aborigines of Australia tell us that there was a certain kind of a song that their god, "was singing; louder and louder until the stars began to dance and arrange themselves in time to Pururiki's song"
