|The Green Boy on Wheels of Fire|
The Asian Version of the Aztec Twin Comet Quetzalcoatl
It actually has an orbit around the Earth that returns in eight year cycles. So it would appear in the first orbit say, coming from the east and does not reappear in the east until the next year eight different times. My co-worker at the motel where I worked, gave me his chart of Venus, the planet, for those eight years. His chart ended in the year 2012 and it contained all the planet's azimuthal (degrees) sightings because he found that it was as regular as clockwork.
It appears to me, that if the event was astronomy, then the whole world would have seen the same thing, so there would have been nothing strange about the Chinese, thinking that the Green Boy with fire at his feet, moved across the sky for the first time. . . . so they claimed that the comet was a boy, and not a man-size yet. At a time, when there were no Palomar or Greenwich observatories, nor radios, or even telephones, the description was appropriate.
Looking down his nose sternly, a knowledgable professor could easily cower any bright student of philosophy in about two seconds. And they would never again mention any detail they had suddenly visualized after reading a myth or a Fairy Tale to their small children. Emphasizing "a more Intelligent level of study" instead of silly myths or fairy tales is a great way to guard closely information that was in the process of government censorship and apt to be wiped out completely from the history books.
