A post in another recent thread about a nearby (10 light years) brown dwarf star prompted me to have a think about an approximate location of Nibiru, it's only 989 days away till the infamous date of December 21st 2012.
So doing some calculations based on what I've found out about Nibiru and other local planets of similar size I have come up with some interesting figures.
First up I needed to find the size of Nibiru, my search brought many results but the most accepted seems to be four times the size of earth, which is the size of Neptune.
I decided to base my calculations of Nibiru on Neptune, due to the similar size:
Neptune travels at about 5.43kms per second, which calculates to 19,548kms per hour or 469,152kms per day.
Now we have two figures.
989 days till impact and a speed of 469,152km per day.
So with these two figures we should be able to calculate the distance from earth by simply multiplying the two numbers.
That figure is 463,991,328kms from Earth.
That places Nibiru inside of Jupiter's orbit.
Now, all this is based on the speed the planet is moving and I have picked the speed of a similarly sized planet. If we were to use the speed of the fastest planet in our solar system, Mercury, the figure would be 4,090,472,352kms from earth.

That's why it's hiding behind the sun, silly.
It's like a giant game of Peek-A-Boo, and so far it's winning.

There are actualy brown dwarf stars closer to Earth then the nearest star is.
Check out this video with info from the infrared WISE telescope.
