Star Aberration Derivation

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing" - Albert Einstein ( 1879 - 1955 )

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds" - Albert Einstein ( 1879 - 1955 )

Riemann spacetime gravity; curvature parameters

star aberration; Copernican heliocentric solar system; speed of light

And what this means in terms of classical physics mathematics as well as astronomical observation, is that beginning with special relativistic mathematics for earth observation of star positions we can now derive the following:

Star Aberration: Phenomenon of our Solar System or the far reaches of Interstellar Space itself?
