They celebrate April Fools' Day in Russia?
In Russia, April Fools' Day Hoaxes Compete With the Actual News : Media: Citizens learn about snakes in Moscow sewers and a potion that covered Gorbachev's birthmark. One of those reports is for real.

It is convenient for this ignorant conspiracy though to say it can only be visible through infrared or it is approaching the earth from the south pole. That way the conspiracy can remain alive for as long as possible. Come on use those critical thinking skills, please!
For the first time since 2007, astronomers have spotted a new meteor shower over Earth. And while this sky show may not be as dazzling as the upcoming Perseids, it could provide the seeds for locating a mysterious and potentially hazardous comet. Even though astronomers can't say much yet about the path of the new meteor shower's parent body, there's no need to hit the panic button, said Geza Gyuk, an astronomer at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. "Collisions are extremely rare events in Earth's history, so I would think this shower is not a predictor of any future impact, but rather a possible indicator of potentially hazardous objects that now could be traced back and followed." But Gyuk admits that we may have a hard time pinning down this object, because in all likelihood it's a long-period comet—one with a highly elliptical orbit that takes it hundreds of times farther than Pluto is from the sun. National Geographic It seems 2016 would be the best bet for predicting gloom and doom. By tracing the orbits of the individual meteors, the team predicts that Earth will slam into the outer edges of the same debris stream in 2016 and 2023, but then won't hit it again until 2076.
Three relatively bright space rocks recently found in Pluto's neighborhood may be new members of the dwarf planet family, astronomers say.
The Kuiper belt is full of objects about the size—or at least the brightness—of the three new bodies, Brown added. In fact, there are 37 other objects in the Kuiper belt at least as bright as the newly discovered candidate dwarfs.

I found this video about some Russian News Channel/Documentary which seems to reveal the fact that Nibiru is very much real and will apparently affect the Earth as it reaches its closest point in our solar system on 21st December 2012.
Now I don't know whether the English subtitles are translated correctly or completely misinterpreted, so can any ATS user who knows Russian, please check if this video is legit or a fake?

And I also checked the coordinates 09h47m57.30s, +13 16'44.0" on www.sky-map.org... then viewed the sky in Infrared Sky Survery (IRAS) and this is the image I got. Strikingly the images also happen to be located near the Leo constellation. Source: www.youtube.com...
And this is the image when you select the filter: SDSS-II (Data Release 7).
It is the dim red star in this picture.

there is no such planet as nibiru, and the whole thing is a hoax to keep your minds busy with the fear for your ass while the world is heading towards a much worse challenge than any mythical crap of a supposed planet. wake up people you're about to lose your underpants to a financial crisis
