It's scientific fact that any object the size of noobiru that's set to hit the earth tomorrow would be clearly visible in the sky.
Astronomers have discovered that the well-studied exoplanet WASP-12b reflects almost no light, making it appear essentially pitch black

New Zealand? Australia? South Africa? Southern South America? What's your view of the sky delivering as far as anything abnormal?
Niku orbits on a plane that is tilted 110 degrees from the plane of the rest of the solar system. One theory is that a large object's gravity is influencing Niku, causing it to orbit at an angle to everything else as well as backward. Various theories, like a hidden Super Earth known as Planet Nine, an unseen dwarf star called Nemesis, or an unknown dwarf planet in the Kuiper Belt are all "problematic" when trying to explain the orbit of Niku, according analyses detailed in the arXiv paper. (It was another group of objects with a highly inclined orbit that first led astronomers to propose the possibility of Planet Nine.)
