A bit of common sense (and / or a few minutes staring at a globe) would be enough to tell you that if an astronomical object is visible from
Antarctica, it would be visible from Chile (where some of the world's largest optical observatories are located), Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand.
It would also be visible from the decks of any cruise vessels or commercial ships sailing in southern waters. With all those potential sources, isn't
it odd that only one person managed to capture this rather spectacular video?
I'm stunned and disappointed to see just how far some people will go to prove how 'open minded' they are. In this thread, I've seen people
actually suggest that rewriting the laws of physics, or coming up with an entirely new mechanic to explain the cycle of the tides makes more sense
than coming to the conclusion that an internet video is a fake. It's even more exasperating in the case of "Nibiru" given the history of that
particular idea...if memory serves, Nibiru was supposed to make a close approach to Earth, causing seven shades of mayhem, societal collapse, and
spiritual carnage in 2003...and 2006...and 2008...and 2010...and 2011. Isn't it time we invoked the "baseball rule" on the prophets of Nibiru? You
know the one...three strikes and you're out.
