WAYTE, RICHARD On the precession of Mercury's orbit. Revised v4. Earth, Moon & Planets, and vixra.org. (Submitted)
The Sun’s orbital motion around the Solar System barycentre contributes a small quadrupole moment to the gravitational energy of Mercury. The effect of this moment has until now gone unnoticed, but it actually generates some precession of Mercury’s orbit. Therefore the residual 43arcsec/cy always allocated to general relativity will now have to account for this new component along with a reduced relativity component.
