Oh, O.T. but....only took me a few seconds, and I like it.....your "location"....in the mini profile....
Counting inward, eh?? Very clever, I must say! Unconventional, but if coming in to visit a star system from "out there", makes sense in a
way....guess one day we all will have to agree on one standard. I'm betting yours might lose, though....just because of our current precedent of the
last several hundred (thousand??) years.....
Oh, HEY!!! Thought of a "spin" back to topic!!
No, as has been said (and apparently ignored)....NO MASSIVE BODY of any sort, whatsoever, no how, no way Jose', can be approaching and already be
inside the Solar System......since not one...NOT ONE of the outer (known) planets.....Pluto (OK, I know.... downgraded to "dwarf"), Neptune, Uranus,
Saturn, Jupiter, or Mars has had its orbit perturbed. Something like that? Would have been noticed, a long, long time ago. People all over the
World watch this stuff, constantly. The "rising" and "setting" times of the planets are published in daily newspapers!!! Amateur and professional
astronomers alike, would have mentioned something, by now!!!
There are computer programs you can buy, or download to your computer ("Stellarium", for example) with software written many years ago, based on the
predictable and very, very stable orbits of the planets....you can check yourselves, from those programs, to see that the planets STILL "rise" and
"set" exactly on time, as expected.
NO WAY would that be the case if a "massive brown dwarf" were out there, barrelling in towards the Sun.....
COMMON SENSE PLEASE, people! Use your brains, and learn stuff, instead of just running around spouting nonsense.....

I tend to agree with your suspicions......
