It's a figment of a schizophrenic's imagination. Yes, really. This woman has voices in her head and believes they speak to her. She developed a
doomsday cult around her and even though the planet never showed up at the dates promised, and most of her following figured out she was not mentally
stable, a few still believe her.
When the hysteria was at its height, hoaxers started sending her pictures of lens flares (walk outside. Take picture of sun. Guess what... you get
spots on the lens (lens flares)) and hoaxed pictures (several confessed to this in public) and she used them as "proof."
Hubble never saw it... Hubble is "farsighted" and can't focus on stuff inside the solar system.
There's no gravitational anomalies.
You'd have seen the thing by now. This is what it would look like if it was that close and was what she claimed it was:
Now... go outside and ask yourself if you see that anywhere.
And the earth's rotation was supposed to have stopped (have any of you gone slipping off the planet yet? That's what would happen if it stopped
suddenly.) How about have you seen the days being longer than 24 hours?
Anyway, all the points you mentioned are covered here:
Remember... the motto of the board is "deny ignorance." This issue has been examined by a lot of people and you can easily look at the claims for
yourself. You'll find that they're the delusions of a very psychotic (and very unpleasant) woman.
You can discuss it in depth here:
Astronomers and physicists hang out on the board.
