To further expand on bigmooses Answer (and appoligies for my spelling, I'm smart but dyslexic) - Planet X (X refering to 10) or Niribu (The name
given to it by the Mayans) is believed/rumored/said to be a partner brown dwarf star to our own sun. More than half of all stars out there have a twin
although many of these twins are brown dwarfs (Stars that did not have quite enough mass to sustain fusion) so consequently don't have very much
visable light comming off of them. They tend to have a mass around 1-3 times that of Jupiter. Much bigger than that and they become regular stars.
Niribu/X is said to have an orbit of around 3600 years and is believed to have been responsible for past near extinction events on earth - The exodus
of egypt, The great flood mentioned in the bible, and the fall of the mayans themselves. Many people believe that this will happen again soon, on or
around 2012. As the planet/dwarf star comes through our solar system again it is said that it will cause major changes to our sun due to the
interaction of EM (electromagnetic) forces between it and our own sun, As well as causing potential gravitational havoc when it passes between us and
the sun (think of an extra large spring tide - a phenonom caused by the interaction of the sun and the moon working toether on tidal actions) coupled
with Electical havoc (Telecoms and TV going down, Compasses going nuts, Power outages ect) as well as metor and asteriod inpacts due to the debris
trail from this stars own satilites if they exist. In addition to temperatue changes of an extreme nature due to increases in solar activites. I
myself believe there maybe some truth to this - It's odds on that our sun does have a twin, And Brown dwarfs are harder to see without an IR infered
telescopes. There are a lot of these going into orbit at the moment, As well as the US bringing in one to the south pole (At massive expence) These IR
telescopes are perfect for seing brown dwarfs as well as looking at solar activites. My advice - Do some of your own research - Don't belive that
CERN will be that involved in it directly - Buy the time it can be seen in the northern hemespere it will be to little to late to tell us much more!
And last of all - Keep an open mind, Be warey of conspiracy nuts and disinformation, There are a lot of attention seekers, Religious loons, as well as
well meaning misinformed people out there all telling there own stories. There are some descrepencies and blank outs in Google sky's and microsoft
telescope's star maps (You can find a few sources of infomation online about where to look for this) so somthing is amiss there. Live life, Love
life What will be will be. Hoax, Rumor, fact or fiction we are all in the same boat. If red object apears in the sky in 2009-2010 in the southern
hemesphere take it seriously and either build a deeo bunker, or party like theres no tommorrow, And do all you can before you die, If nothing shows up
then just shrug it off and enjoy a mild sence of relief.
