In this paper, I refocus on the second one of the findings that I described in my paper: Did Einstein cheat? The precise and detailed bending of star light grazing the sun can be found for light rays, just by applying the Maxwell Analogy (which has firstly been suggested by Heavyside at the end of the 19th century) and by using the sun's orbital motion and its rotation. I find that the bending on the sun' poles complies with the measured values, and I find different bending at the left and the right side of the sun. Also observation confirms an asymmetric deviation of light, depending on the latitude where the star's light grazes the sun.
