(Readers new to the whole topic can get a briefing here.)
Hoagland has actually offered three separate versions of the Accutron trace he recorded at Coral Castle during the Venus transit on 8th June 2004. First, this one, in his original article Von Braun's Secret Part 2:
Then there was this one, published much later in a document entitled A Most Hyperdimensional Eclipse... and final Venus Transit.
Then finally there was this one, with a much extended horizontal scale, showing 5.8 hours from before 3rd contact all the way to 12:15. That was also in the Von Braun article, down at the bitter end.
Richard Hoagland was queried, some time back, about the fact that those first two didn't seem to be compatible. Astronomer Stuart Robbins also drew attention to this, in his recent podcast. "Maybe he mislabeled something. I’d prefer not to say that he faked his data," said Robbins, generously. Hoagland's response, at the time, was "Same data, different scale." Well IS IT? The horizontal scales -- representing the passage of time left to right -- on both traces are the same, so they're easy enough to compare as long as the image widths are made the same. Both cover a period of 1.4 hours, although not the same 1.4 hours. The vertical scales -- the tuning fork frequency -- are different, so some stretching is required to provide a fair comparison.
Here are the two traces, with the moment of 3rd contact aligned and the vertical scale forced to be the same.
...and here are the two vertical scales side by side, to prove that I did an accurate job of stretching.
Looking at the results, just one word comes to mind. That word is Busted!
