It's a rather simple answer...."Nibiru" is fiction.
We, the lay-person, who don't have the equipment or knowledge of the cosmos to decipher between a nebulae from a rogue planet
Even a lay-person can do the research, and find the differences......and, with the financial wherewithal, buy their own personal telescope, and take
some classes at Univ. or local College on Astronomy....or, read up about it at the local library, for free. Alternatively, short of buying one's own
(admittedly not a cheap hobby) telescope, one could seek out a local-area astronomy club of amateur enthusiasts, who might be willing to lend their
own personal knowledge and experience to a lay-person, when asked.
And, the definition of a 'nebula". Most who have even the most vague understanding of the Cosmos don't need to look up the definition (because
there is no
similarity to a nebula and a "rogue" planet), but here's the definition anyway, for anyone else (I presume the definition of
"planet" is not necessary?):
Types of Nebulae
Originally, the word "nebula" referred to almost any extended astronomical object (other than planets and comets). The etymological root of
"nebula" means "cloud".
And skipping in the "Intro":
More strictly speaking, the word "nebula" should be reserved for gas and dust clouds and not for groups of stars.
Therefore, it is rather obvious that the term "nebula" can never be applied to a planet, of any sort......whether fictional (like "Nibiru") or
