Should you check out this website, the "doctor" claims
that the "galactic
alignment" happened in 1997. He seems well-versed in the history.
Also, this website calls it a "non-event"
and has G Hancock's "Fingerprint..." book
This guy says the event "galactic alignment" is about 10 minutes
long and unseen.
Lastly, as I usually like to play devil's advocate, this site is a Doomsday site, w/ news of a gravity
that are comparable to "end times" -- some legit looking info and charts.
