from the book "Nostradamus 1999" by Stefan Paulus
Century 10 , Quatrain 72
The year 1999,
the seventh month,
From the sky will come
a great King of Terror:
Resuscitating the great
King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars
to reign happily.

I have heard about this not too long ago but have just watched the video on Google Video below-
Is this what the Incas saw, when they stopped their calender at 2012?
Is this what Nostradamus saw when he spoke of "the great King of terror coming from the sky" ?
Are we being dumbed down in regard to this matter?
There is a whole lot of info from researchers all over the net about a "possible" Planet X and its 3,600 year orbit, and how it is expected soon.
I guess one thing to look out for is that Ed Dames states that we will know when this is about to begin when a shuttle mission is forced down fro orbit due to a large meteor shower.
Mate, Im going to go nuts, anybody else out there worried like I am?
Asteroid passed by Earth unnoticed for four days
Last Updated: Wednesday, March 20, 2002 | 5:19 PM ET
An asteroid 70 metres across zipped by the Earth in early March and wasn't noticed until four days later, say astronomers.
The asteroid, dubbed 2002 EM7, passed within 461,000 kilometres of Earth on March 8 but wasn't seen until March 12.
On the scale of the solar system, it was a close call. The moon is only about 400,000 kilometres away.

Dames lost it years ago. He has been predicting doom and gloom for over 20 years. If you look at his claims and track record, he's a joke.

Does A Companion Star To Sun Cause Earth's Periodic Mass Extinctions?
THE THEORIZED COMPANION STAR, THROUGH ITS GRAVITATIONAL PULL, UNLEASHES A FURIOUS STORM OF COMETS IN THE INNER SOLAR SYSTEM LASTING FROM 100,000 TO TWO MILLION YEARS. SEVERAL OF THESE COMETS STRIKE THE EARTH.
"We expect that in a typical comet storm, there would be perhaps 10 impacts spread out over two million years, with intervals averaging 50,000 years between impacts," says LBL astrophysicist Richard Muller. In 1984, Muller, along with UC Berkeley astronomer Marc Davis and Piet Hut, an astronomer with the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University, announced the Nemesis theory in Nature magazine. As could be expected, it was and remains controversial. However, although the evidence for the existence of Nemesis is still circumstantial, this evidence continues to mount, and the theory has so far withstood all challenges.
The Kuiper Belt is full of leftovers from the formation of the Sun and solar system.
Stern has said the distant belt probably contained enough material when the solar system initially developed to have created another Neptune-sized planet. For some reason, most of that mass is gone. And the "10th planet" never formed, though it pops up routinely in computer simulations.
So what happened? Something must have disrupted the Kuiper Belt, way back more than 4 billion years ago, Stern figures. Perhaps the formation of Neptune caused a gravitational shift that tore the other fledgling planet apart. Or maybe several large planetary wannabes were ejected out of the solar system by Neptune and, along the way, swept parts of the Kuiper Belt clean. Possibly something else is to blame.
Studying the Pluto-Charon system, as well as one or more other KBOs, could answer this question of the "missing" planet.
Does solar system have far-out planets?
Sedna's existence could hint at worlds on the edge
Several astronomers not involved in the discovery support the idea that Sedna was lured outward by a star. But others don't buy that explanation.
"I don't really like that," said Marsden, who heads the Minor Planet Center in Cambridge, Mass., where newfound solar system bodies are cataloged.
Marsden favors an object closer in, a "planetary object," he told Space.com, perhaps at between 400 and 1,000 AU.
"Perhaps there's more than one planet out there," Marsden said. "Who knows? But let's suppose it is something of an Earth mass, maybe even a few Earth masses. A close approach could throw this object [Sedna] from something more circular into something more eccentric."
Mysterious force holds back Nasa probe in deep space
By Robert Matthews, Science Correspondent
A SPACE probe launched 30 years ago has come under the influence of a force that has baffled scientists and could rewrite the laws of physics.
Researchers say Pioneer 10, which took the first close-up pictures of Jupiter before leaving our solar system in 1983, is being pulled back to the sun by an unknown force. The effect shows no sign of getting weaker as the spacecraft travels deeper into space, and scientists are considering the possibility that the probe has revealed a new force of nature.
Two ideas for how to perturb the Oort Cloud have been proposed:
A dark sister sun called Nemesis: Our sun formed as a binary, with a secondary star that never began to shine (too small for fusion). Interaction of the orbit of the two stars could regularly cause gravitational perturbation of the Oort Cloud. Systematic search for Nemesis has not yet revealed such a dark star.
Galactic Plane Oscillation: Our solar system is not static within the galaxy, but oscillates up and down through the main symmetry plane of the Galaxy with about a 60 million year periodicity. Each passage through the plane could lead to the surrounding Oort cloud being perturbed by increased interstellar mass in the galactic plane. This would release a hail of comets, some of which would strike the Earth. The timing is not quite perfect, but it is on the right scale. We are now pretty much in the middle of a cycle, so would not expect another mass extinction for millions of years.
A mystery revolves around the sun
Researchers suggest that huge unseen object orbits on fringe of solar system.
Oct. 7, 1999 Two teams of researchers have proposed the existence of an unseen planet or a failed star circling the sun at a distance of more than 2 trillion miles, far beyond the orbits of the nine known planets. The theory, which seeks to explain patterns in comets' paths, has been put forward in research accepted for publication in two separate journals.
How could such a massive object exist so far from the sun? The researchers say a planet or dark star could have coalesced during the formation of the solar system billions of years ago, but more probably would be a passing celestial body that was captured by the sun�s subtle gravitational pull.
Another question: Why hasn't such an object been seen? Murray says that even a Jupiter-scale planet could not be observed at the immense distances involved. Matese and his colleagues say that their hypothetical brown dwarf wouldn't have been detected even by the Infrared Astronomical Satellite, which surveyed the heavens in 1983 but that the yet-to-be-launched Space Infrared Telescope Facility just might be able to pick it up.
Runaway star voted off the island
Astronomers have stumbled onto a runaway star inbound to our galaxy that might have been kicked out of our nearest galactic neighbour by a supermassive black hole.
The star, HE 0437-5439, was found on a star survey and initially led its discoverers to suspect their instruments were out of whack.
"We first thought our wavelength calibration was off," says astronomer Dr Ralf Napiwotzki of the University of Hertfordshire's Centre for Astrophysics Research in the UK.
The light from the star was the wrong colour, or wavelength, for where the star was located.
And it showed spectral signs that it was travelling inbound to the Milky Way at an unusually high speed, at 2.6 million kilometres per hour.
