Alrighty, watched the video. Here's CLPrime's take
The astronomy aspects of the video are good. First of all, he does seem to know what he's doing with a telescope. He also knows that a brown dwarf
should emit light mostly in the infrared range. I have argued before that a brown dwarf would be visible by now, but cooler brown dwarf are,
admittedly, optically dimmer, and they would be indistinguishable from the field of stars.
Unfortunately, he also seems to be your typical conspiracy theorist (chem clouds? *sigh*), which knocks his credibility down a bit, but, if he's truly
onto something, he should be able to overcome that. So, is he onto something?
Well, he is right that, where he's looking, there is nothing obvious to suggest the presence of a comet. However, it's debatable whether or not Elenin
should have a tail by now. It's just entering the inner solar system, and that's when tails usually start to form. It might be some random, tiny point
But, then, that doesn't account for the object he's pointing out, because that is (as far as I know) not the appearance of a comet. It actually looks
like a star with some sort of accretion disk, given its elongated shape. It also matches the description of a brown dwarf, as I said, because it's
very dim optically, but it becomes very visible in the infrared.
So, observationally, he has a case. Physically, not so much. This doesn't negate all of the replies I've posted on related threads stating how
impossible the "Nibiru" scenario is. Give me a physically stable orbit and a reason why the brown dwarf's gravity is not perturbing the other planets
and I will agree that there is possibly something to this.
