well, Gliese 229/581 is a RED dwarf star...not BROWN. so, does that make a difference in if we can see it or not? Gliese 581 has at least one planet orbiting around it (581c)...just like the many that orbit around "Nibiru" maybe?

And if it did have a 3600 year orbit and was the mass of a brown Dwarf which is 8-10+ Jupiter Masses or more
Brown Dwarfs vary in size from the the size of Jupiter to 80 Jupiter masses. There is plenty other information here on brown dwarfs, it also supports the fact that most are only visible in infrared.

For this to be nothing good ole' weedwhacker sure is spending alot of time defending his stance!! If this is nothing I wonder why he is trying so hard to discredit an opinion?

He has the first two checked off; come Sept./Oct. he can complete the cycle!
