I sent an email to NASA requesting the official explanation of what this thing actually is, here is their response:
If so many people weren't hitting the server, you could see the page:
and you would know that it's Venus. If you're patient, the page will (as of this writing) still load, but it may take quite a while. I apologize for the slow performance, but apparently many people are interested in the subject.
I am, however, not a NASA "official," just a scientist. And I don't have a "stand point" on the matter; it's Newtonian physics to predict where the planets are as seen from the STEREO spacecraft.
(Dr.) Joseph B. Gurman
STEREO Project Scientist
The problem I find with this statement is that this object is located 30 degrees to the LEFT of the Sun...this is NOT where Venus is located, then again....guess I could be wrong. Opinions???
Tom Jordan, a USC professor and director of the Southern California Earthquake Center, says that while some studies indicate tidal effects may have an effect on smaller quakes, there's no evidence they have an effect on bigger quakes like the one April 4 centered in Baja California. "And these effects," he adds, "were only found after searching very deeply."
Author David Nabhan thinks a quake could be caused by a lining up of the moon, sun and Earth and says most large earthquakes happen when the moon is full. But Lucy Jones, of the U.S. Geological Survey, says, "There has never been any demonstrated correlations of large earthquakes with the full moon?If doing the easy things like the full moon worked, we would be doing it."
Jim Berkland, a San Jose geologist, predicted the 1989 quake five days before it happened in an article in his local newspaper. He claims to have 75% accuracy at predicting major quakes by consulting the planetary alignments?as well as the Lost and Found section of the newspaper, to figure out how many dogs and cats have run away from home. He also consults the geyser at Calistoga, California, to find out if its regular eruptions have been interrupted.
The latter, which arises from the periodic alignment of the Sun and Moon, has often been claimed in the popular press to incubate earthquakes (sometimes termed the "syzygy" effect) and occasionally for small datasets in the scientific literature (e.g.,), but generally such effects do not appear in careful studies of large datasets.

Just end this #, science and logic and at least some #ing well thought out hypothesis at the very minimum. Stop this dribble, you'll get no where
I don't want vague jumps from the mayans had a calender, sumerians have some pictures and we can't prove anything happened 3600 years ago but lets make a # theory up out of nothing, yeh that's scientific - WAKE UP fools

That's one post with no content or thought. There sure seems to be a trend of posting absolutely nothing when it comes to Nibiru or whatever nonsense name you want to give an impossible new planet.

We sure have had a surplus of new members lately, this one brought something entertaining though; welcome and good job. I am not sure what this is, I have heard about a few comets heading our direction, and I also remember there was a comet that got very close to the sun recently; not sure when that was will look this info up and add it here.
I am sure you will get all sorts of responses to this, just keep going; it also helps to try and debunk your own work, adds a sort of validity to your pursuit for truth.
