The one I think your refering too is the one where our solar system lines up directly with the center of the Galaxy. Which, as of right now, is happening.. No extreme effects were predicted that I'm aware of though. At least not REAL ones. I'm sure there's a doomsdayer or too that would say otherwise.. But I'll wait till tomorrow to bash them... Heh
I'm sorry, but you just confused the crap out of me. Can you provide a link of some kind?

We'll find out in 27 million years time when the solar system next crosses the galactic equator. Until then, I'd not lose sleep over it.
The odds of all nine planets lining up in a row are one in 8.6 billion trillion trillion trillion--8.6 followed by 45 zeros. This number is larger than the estimated age (in years) of the universe.

Wouldn't it be neat if the shell of the solar system locked temporarily to the galactic plane and it spun as we went through it. The earth is locked to something outside of the solar system so it wouldn't tilt more so we would not be effected except our eliptical orbit would be altered changing our seasons. Just a wild thought
