But I have read what these people have said, and here are the points my very scientifically uneducated mind has perceived.
1. Some of those amateurs with telescopes would have seen it.
2. Not just the south pole observers would see it.
3. If it was this close, it's effect would be seen in changes in the movement of planets and moons in the solar system
So my question is whether these science savy people know things that make it clear that Planet X is not going to happen, or is it possible that Planet
X is a totally new phenomena that even science brains haven't figured out?
1. If any large planet or brown dwarf was on course to enter the inner Solar System (ie. somewhere near Earth) in 2012, then it would have to be
within the orbit of Uranus right now. Since Uranus is actually just visible to the naked eye if you know where to look, amateur astronomers would have
no trouble seeing a large planet closer than it with small telescopes, or even binoculars.
2. The south celestial
pole would be easily visible from any southern hemisphere locations (Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina
etc). If a large planet was approaching us from that direction, it would have been seen by thousands
of amateur astronomers. Keeping it a
secret would be impossible.
3. An object of the size attributed to Nibiru/Planet X would indeed have caused measurable gravitational perturbations to the orbits of the outer
planets. The magnitude of these perturbations would depend on how close the object was to a particular planet, but they would be noticed even if it
was relatively distant. The orbits of the major planets are calculated using very sophisticated Digital Ephemeris algorithms, and the discrepancies
between those calculations and the actual perturbed
positions of the planets would have been detected by now.
