How about, every 12,000 years or so the Sun micro-nova's and the ensuing output blasts the Earth a bit farther away from the Sun.
Hey, Great post, thanks. I get the feeling that you might find this of interestI guess I'm a bit flummoxed by the title - The Sun is Getting Closer implies that the Earth's orbit is shrinking over time, when of course, it isn't.
Russian dynamicists Gregoriy A. Krasinsky and Victor A. Brumberg calculated, in 2004, that the sun and Earth are gradually moving apart. Not by a great deal – just 15 cm per year – but since that’s 100 times greater than the measurement error, something must really be pushing Earth outward. But what is the mechanism?
One idea is that the Sun is losing enough mass, via fusion and the solar wind, to gradually be losing its gravitational force (see Astronomical unit may need to be redefined) (𝐹 = 𝐺𝑀1𝑀2/𝑟2). Other possible explanations include a change in the gravitational constant G, the effects of cosmic expansion, and even the influence of dark matter. None of the latter have proved satisfactory.
Takaho Miura of Hirosaki University in Japan and three colleagues think they have the answer. In an article submitted to the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, they argue that the sun and Earth are literally pushing each other away due to their tidal interaction.
A similar process is gradually propelling the moon’s orbit outward: Tides raised by the moon in our oceans are gradually transferring Earth’s rotational energy to lunar motion. Consequently, each year, the moon’s orbit expands by about 4 cm and Earth’s rotation slows by 0.000017 second.
Likewise, Miura’s team assumes that our planet’s mass, and the mass of the inner two planets - Mercury and Venus, are raising a tiny but sustained tidal bulge in the sun. They calculate that, thanks to just the Earth, the sun’s rotation rate is slowing by 3 milliseconds per century (0.00003 second per year). According to their explanation, the distance between the Earth and sun is growing because the sun is losing its angular momentum.

Indeed, it's challenging to say the least. I've been absorbed in/by it for the past few months. Velikovsky was one of the pioneers in this area. Good sources here also https://suspicious0bservers.org/Sally -
I think I'm going to need some time to examine this man's credentials, digest this, and look into this so called synchronous process.
We measure a large amount of mass being accelerated from our star to well out pass Neptune. Continuously. Stars shine mass too. Think of the eons of stars. And if stars start out as hydrogen, then a side product is fission into isolated charge. The earth's shield protects us from fission products.
This has to have an effect on the strength of the star's gravity. According to all theory. And it decreases the density of free isolated charge in the star. The other particle ratios go up. Over time, this must have some effect.
First of all, attention must be paid to the proper terms. Are you describing coronal mass ejections when you state "large amount of mass being accelerated from our star to well out pass Neptune?" If so, this must be clearly elucidated. Are coronal mass ejections accelerated beyond Neptune? And, if so, what is the total mass of such an ejection vis a vis the total mass of the sun? Eons of stars are mentioned. An eon is the largest division of geologic time, comprising two or more eras, while in astronomy an eon is equated to one billion years. Are you describing a set of stars through a particular length of time or just a finite number of stars however large?
In any case, not all stars begin as pure hydrogen.
Stars may be classified by their heavy element abundance, which correlates with their age and the type of galaxy in which they are found.
Population I stars include the sun and tend to be luminous, hot and young, concentrated in the disks of spiral galaxies and are usually found in the spiral arms. With the currently accepted model of heavy element formation in supernovae explosions, the gas from which they formed had been seeded with the heavy elements formed from previous giant stellar explosions. About 2% of the total belong to Population I stars.
Population II stars tend to be found in globular clusters and the nucleus of a galaxy. They tend to be older, less luminous and cooler than Population I stars. They have fewer heavy elements, either by being older or being in regions where no heavy-element producing predecessors would normally be found. Astronomers often describe this condition by saying that they are "metal poor", and this coefficient of "metallicity " is used as an indication of stellar age.
