OP: I haven't heard that whatever will be visible in the southern hemisphere in 2012 BUT I did hear in 1994 that something foreign (celestial-wise)
was visible near the south pole. It didn't have a name that I recall but since that time there have been many names.
Once upon a time someone at an unnamed observatory discovered planets which he named Easterbunny, Santa, Xena and Snow White. He was asked to rename
them after mythological gods of creation, which he did, calling them Makemake, Haumea and Eris respectively. Was Snow White renamed? I don't
There followed Quaoar (actually Quaoar preceded the above if news rehashes are to be believed), Sedna, Tyche etc.
Somewhere before or in between (timelines are annoying and shouldn't really be adhered to) came Planet X, Planet V (yes - I know - remember the lizard
V?), Nemesis, Nibiru, the much bandied but still favored brown dwarf and many numbered objects.
Couple of interesting stories (cute and fuzzy):
articles.latimes.com 'Voyage to the Bunny Planet'
mikebrownplanets.com 'Snow White needs a bailout'
So I guess I have to disagree with your OP because it (whatever) has been seen, is being seen and will continue to be seen. The question I have then
is "...a rose by any other name..." is it still a rose?
