Spanish Astronomers Claim Dwarf Sun Beyond Pluto


The idea of a new planet being discovered in our Solar System is pretty exciting. Even more so because of the many theories about "planet-x" or "Nibiru" being associated with space aliens and the doomsday prophecies of 2012.

Scientists at places like NASA and famous observatories have deflected inquiries about the discovery for a few years now, mainly because they feared being associated with these "fringe" theories. But like it or not -- it has happened. Well... according to a team of Spanish artronomers who call themselves the StarViewer Team.

The group made the rounds of all the news web sites in the past two weeks, claiming they discovered something very significant. It's almost twice the size of Jupiter and just beyond our furthest planetoid, Pluto. Although it's not a planet, it appears to have planets or large satellites encircling it. It's what astronomers call a "brown dwarf star" and its official name is "G1.9".

You might well ask why astronomers have never detected this object before. In fact they did. G1.9 was first identified as a "supernova remnant" in 1984 by Dave Green of the University of Cambridge and later studied in greater detail with NRAO's Very Large Array radio telescope in 1985. Because it was unusually small for a supernova it was thought to be young -- less than about 1000 years old.

It's on the other side of Pluto?
Methinks it shall be late for the 2012 shindig.

You seem to be rather sure of an unpopular opinion. I'm interested
why do you think this is true?
This is old news.

The latest data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope suggests that the universe might be brimming with planets that have two suns like the desert world that Luke Skywalker called home.

More than half of all known star systems are binaries, with twin stars locked in a gravitational dance, NASA scientists say.

-----------------------------

It is very plausible to conclude that our sun does have a binary companion...

That would explain alot of our his-story and also explain what is happening in our solar system right now.

I'm intrigued to know what this would explain about our 'his-story' as you put it? And what exactly would it explain about these 'happenings' in our galaxy?

As half of all stars, as you say, are binary systems; then that is still a 1 in 2 chance we have only one sun.

All our theories about gravity and the behaviour of stellar bodies is based on observations of our own galaxy and the fact we have one sun. These theories can be accurately applied to other observable galaxies, both singular and binary. This wouldn't be the case if we had missed the mass of a brown star out of these calculations!

Sorry, but no planet x, unless it's in one of the earth's Lagrange points (story for another day), but keep watching the skies, you might see a cloud or two!

sorry i might sound a wee bit braindead but what does this mean for us and the earth

Do you have an opinion or are you just questioning other peoples opinions?
Is "is" what is about or "is" it not what it is?

It would explain the rise and fall of past civilizations and cultures…all the way back to Atlantis…seems there is a cycle that repeats every so many thousands of years.

Currently all the planets in our solar system are heating up…whether it has to do with an incoming planetary body or passing through the photon belt..not sure.

Walter Cruttunden claims that the star Sirius is our suns binary twin...

Here is an interview on Conscious Media Network where Cruttenden talks about Sirius being the Suns binary star…

I was just commenting on what the article said. If it is true, then unless it is going at insane speeds-it obviously can't be the Nibiru discussed in the associated threads.

My personal oppin on the whole Nibiru stuff: It's a whole lot of supposition and conjecture based off extremely shaky circumstantial evidence.

It almost seems like in the associated threads-the more obscure or discredited a person/idea is, the more considered fact it tends to be.

A planetary body wouldn't heat up all the other planets in the solar system by any noticeable amount, and the "photon belt" does not exist. So it's neither.

I also saw another theory that said that the government (of course...) was going to provoke a vulcanic eruption so that the skies get all foggy and that we can only see the so called 'Planet-X' when it's already too late..

I found this website:
www.universetoday.com...
I'm not an expert, but that clears up all possibilities, right?


Also, if the planet would be 4 to 8 times larger than earth, could we possibly change its orbit with nuclear stuff and all that? We've seen it before, in 'Armaggedon' the movie.. Is is possible?
But anyway, tell me if any theory remains yet-to-explain, on that website I just posted.. And then just tell me.. should we be worried? Even if we couldn't do anything to stop it, I tend to get very influenced by this stuff, and I don't want to keep this nervousness until 2013.. Please answer me.

EDIT: I think that that website covers all theories, and it says all of them are fake (i think). However, imagine if it existed and was 4-8 times larger than earth, could we like, move it or maybe eliminate it somehow?
also I found this: www.universetoday.com...

just because our theories apply does not mean that others do no also apply ....

Just because one answer is correct does not mean it is not one of many correct answers....

so you may be right but you may not be the only one who is right.....which means you can't be so sure the other poster was wrong...

Could you not have just said 'you may be right, you may be wrong'? Though very poetic, kudos.

This is all theoretical, however one man and a website will not change the weight of evidence against us having the one star.

For me evidence is more important than opinion and anecdotes. I'm sure if I set up a website saying that all the planets are becoming polka dotted and shrinking due to Nbiru, there would be a thread on here within days.................

actually, not a bad experiment!

Ah, experiments and research, now there's a way to prove something
