I'll give it a shot Zenjewel. Nibiru, AKA The Destroyer, sometimes characterized as Planet X, frequently compared to Wormwood of the Bible.
It is theorized to be a "rogue" planet, sometimes called a brown dwarf star, with a huge eliptical orbit which -- according to some -- enters the
inner planets' area of influence every 3600 years.
If you search for Nibiru on youtube, many of the pieces you will find will detail photos/video that allege to depict a "second sun" supposedly
visible sometimes from Earth. Usually these objects are close to the setting sun, and by their very definition of "second sun" they are always
within the frame of a photo or video that also shows the sun. My belief is that all of this category of photo and video depict atmospheric phenomena
(sun dogs, etc.) or are lens flares. One way of manufacturing a lens flare that looks like a smaller version of the sun is to take the photograph
from behind glass.
There are many people who are convinced that Nibiru is a real phenomenon and that it has caused an extinction level event (ELE) on the Earth several
times as it passes near us. Many people -- some of them whom I respect their intellect and opinions -- believe this is tied into the dreaded 2012
That's part of what makes this all so frustrating, and also intriguing -- the many different theories in which Nibiru is often dovetailed with, such
as Mayan calendar/prophecy, Biblical prophecy, Native American, as well as dozens of ancient Earth cultures. Almost every culture has a destruction
mythology, which is viewed frequently by that culture as being history. If one is looking for a confirmation, I believe they can find it, because
few of these cultural or religious documents are precise, and are interpretive biased towards the readers' desires. I'm quite guilty of this
myself: I read old cultural/religious documents and I see things that speak clearly to me of non-Earth intelligences (aliens, EBEs), but is that
really what they are talking about, or just what I want to see?
Much of the Nibiru theory comes from a Russian named Zecharia Stitchin, who professes to be an expert on the ancient Summerian language and culture,
and of course, sells books and videos of same. Zecharia Stitchin
He weaves a very engaging tale about aliens -- called the Annukai -- coming to Earth, creating humans for various purposes, and eventually waging war
with each other on and around the Earth. They allegedly came from the planetary body of Nibiru, and it is said by many to be coming again.
There are frequently folks that create hoaxes that have quite a shelf life. There was an ATS member named NibiruShock, who created a youtube hoax
which claimed to be a video of Nibiru approaching Earth as seen through an infrared telescope located in Antarctica. He later confessed to having
created the hoax, and proved it was he or she who made the youtube video by saying how he/she would change the text on the youtube, and then did so.
Only the user of a youtube account can make changes, which most of us considered to be quite conclusive.
I have taken and posted several photographs here on ATS taken outside of a clear sky of sunset, and sundown sequences showing only a single sun.
It's a very easy thing to do, and we are sometimes lead to believe by some members here and elsewhere that Nibiru is only visible some of the time,
often in association with cloud cover. Some members believe that contrails/chemtrails are being sprayed to intentionally obscure view of the sun.
That's what makes this all so difficult to pin down -- you can't disprove a negative, and the tendrils of this conspiracy are far-reaching, into
OTHER conspiracies which also cannot be disproved and so on and so on.
As I say in my profile, "I don't believe in Nibiru, but I can't help tracking its progress." And it's true........... or I wouldn't be here,
in your thread, creating a Nibiru 101. If you are interested in learning more of the theory, the links above might give you more information. I
urge you to be critical of any information about Nibiru -- including my own -- and look for data that is measurable.
Hope that helps!
