3D Quasar Gravitational Lens Map observations show motion trails of nearby quasars, resembling the motions of asteroids passing by earth across the fixed background sky of stars.
"The shape of the broad absorption lines were different from each lensed image of the quasar. Scientists narrowed it down to two scenarios: (1) We see different parts of the outflow cloud of material. (2) We see changes over a large size scale over a short period of time, since the lenses images take slightly different paths to get to us."
Scenario (3) The simple explanation: The gravitational lens theory is wrong if quasars are not very far away. Quasar distances are all entirely based on the controversial redshift interpretation for the big-bang and expanding universe. Famous astronomer Halton Arp says that quasars are much closer to us, and that conventional cosmology is wrong.
Nearby moving objects like asteroid 2012 DA14 leave motion trails across the fixed sky of stars. The gravitational lens interpretation has not just two possible interpretations, but a better third interpretation by Halton Arp. Quasars might really be a lot closer to earth than most distant galaxies, and the redshift interpretation for an expanding universe is wrong.
