This topic deals with observations I've made of Jupiter over this past summer. I am not a proffessional or an expert in any field dealing with
astronomy, astrophysics, or even advanced mathmatics..................However I feel compelled to share a few points of interest to see how well it
holds up (and really, I won't mind a mauling over this)
I have to admit that my recent resurgence of amature astronomy came on the heels of my interest in the dreaded planet X. At one point I got tired of
all the BS topics of supposed brown dwarfs coming up from the south pole. I decided that I would reaquaint myself with the night sky in order to know
what I'm looking at when I see a strange star
. I bought a 127mm reflector telescope with autotracking, and a few filters and other accessories
and then I was off.
I Live, and work on the gulf coast. I sometimes work a night shift, and I started setting the scope up at work for when things got slow in the middle
of the night. It was fun to see my friends and co-workers pull their faces away from their I phones and such, to actually LOOK and wonder about things
outside their little bubbles. I noticed over the weeks and months one of my friends has exceptional eyesight. He would aways be the first to pick out
mars or even saturn as the daylight would fade after dusk. One fairly good night me and my friend were looking at Jupiter, and it's four largest
moons. He was watching the Jovian system till he reached eye fatigue, then moved out of the way, for me to take a look. While I was taking my turn he
suddenly blurted out, "you know what's wierd, I can actually SEE that." When I realized he meant he could see the moons of jupiter too, I just smiled
inwardly and told him I wish I had his eyesight. I mean everyone knows you can't see jupiters moons with the naked eye right?
Almost a month later (mid august) I was just looking at jupiter with my eyes, and noticed an extra glaryness to it. I stared, and looked away, and
stared again. The planet had a "Spikyness" to it, and in between two of the larger spikes I could see 2 tiny "stars" lined up in a row along the edge
of one of those spikes. I couldn't believe it. Was I seeing two of jupiters moons? Later I quickly set up a little Tasco spotting scope I have, and
confirmed two moons lined up at jupiters 7 o'clock position with the other two close or behind the planet. I continued making observations, and found
I could predict what the moon arrangement would look like before I would look at stellarium or in a scope. I couldn't do it all the time, especially
when the moons were closer to jupiter, but I was getting right enough times to look more into it.
This is a representation of what I usually see: a spiky star with two little stars tucked in close.
Jupiter is indeed getting closer than it has since 1963. It will closest to us on tuesday sept 21 2010. but close enough to see the moons? I made a
few searches an found a report from 1976 describing possible sightings in the 1800's. A few weeks ago I started posting in various nibiru threads to
keep an eye on jupiter, and reporting what I was seeing. Stereoligist posted results of a search on naked eye siteings which had a report from the
ancient writings of a chinese astronomer (Gan) from the 4th century BCE. I became even more intriged and started looking more possible references from
long ago, as well as getting to know jupiter better. I always knew jupiter had lots and lots of satalites beyond the 4 we can see, and I assumed all
those moonlets went around in their ever expanding rings of orbits.
Boy was I wrong about that! Beyond calisto are 59 other objects moving in long elipses, protracted slingshot orbits and other chaotic revolution
arrangements. Here is a site that shows a gif as an example of their jovian simulator.One group even forms what looks like a star pattern in the way
jupiter yanks it back under control as it moves thru the solar sysytem.

Sept 17 2010 yahoo story
In my searches I found that Jupiter is associated with Marduk, son of ENKI from ancient summarian text. This is the same Marduk that Zacharia Sitchin
writes about. Everyone calls him a quack because the story is nice, but the number of times nibiru, along with it's nemisis brown dwarf, comes around
never fits with the supposed 3700 year orbit. That and his reading of the ancient writings seems more like an extreme opinion in some cases. Based on
what I've seen so far he seems to be dliberately miss leading his followers, with some very obvious exemptions to the story. Take a look at the WIKI
for jupiter, in it scroll down to the mythology section, and marduk plainly is listed there. I know wiki is not the final word but it can be used as
Even in his own book "The End Of Days" on page 204 he quotes from an ancient tablet:
From the station of jupiter, the planet passes towards the west
From the station of jupiter, the planet increases it's brilliance, and in the zodiac of Cancer will become nibiru.
On this same page he has a huge footnote saying how everyone else is wrong, that this is not jupiter, but nibiru coming in with another known planet
in close proximity. IMO this one page, in all his works, is a major linchpin that shows his mistake in everything else.
I have more so please hang on for the next post.
