Yes, I have an opinion of what happened, but it would be speculation. But when I speculate you tend to attack it for lack of evidence. So why don't you tell us what Mr. Buley meant by the lights going by them, and that she disappeared astern of where the ship sank.

Everything we have been discussing is speculation. In my last post, I told you what is my speculation on Mr. Buley's statement. It appears you've missed it. Here it is one more time. I believe that by the lights going by them Mr. Buley meant that the lights he was watching on his left-hand side moved to his right-hand side. At least it is how I read this part of the testimony. I honestly have no idea what he meant under "astern", and I'd be interested to hear what you think about this. I do not attack every speculation you make. I only point out the ones that in my opinion are baseless. I do like your speculation on the cause of the diminished brightness of the Titanic's masthead light. I believe it is very plausible speculation.
