It could happen. A rogue planet or a brown dwarf. They're both floating around out there. One day one will show up.
Why do they call them "dwarfs" if they're supposed to be massive?


Anyways, Pluto is about 3 billion miles away, and something could both enter and exit without doing us damage, as long as it stayed far enough away.

If I hear something is closer, then I'll worry.

I found this image of it...



It is just behind Jupiter. We are all doomed!

Lets see, all the other scientific fact stories about a "killer planet" killing us have failed... so lets revitalize the genre and say its a new and improved really bigger nemesis gonna kill us!!!

Maybe they'll believe that.

Because, although we now know them to be quite common, they are still much smaller than normal stars, like our Sun (which in turn is much smaller than giants stars, like Betelgeuse).

It's just a relative term. An ant might wonder why we call some humans dwarfs ....

All stars are massive, Just some are not as massive as others.

Since the report was aired August 2011 (and Dec 2012 which was associated with the return of Nibiru came and went)....perhaps an update on its location would be in order.

They are fiant by the measure of earth, but as far as a sun goes, it is the dwarf of the family, think adding saturn to jupiter, and making a slightly glowing, barely warm sun, that just never took off.

Think failure to launch, on a stars scale, they just arent big enough to fully fire up and burn, they are basically smoldering versions of a nuclear reaction, no fire, just a little smoke and heat.

LOLL although this is CNN.

I would love to see what Phage would say about the headline..

Like I said I know it's CNN.

However, I have been saying that Nibiru is a Brown/Black Dwarf.

The reason being why astronomers cannot see it during the day - Because no light is reflecting off of the Brown Dwarf from the direction it is coming from.

You would only be able to see it if the Sun where to reflect light off of it.

Much like Gliese 229B.







Their strongest emissions would be in the infrared (IR) spectrum, and ground-based IR detectors were too imprecise at that time to readily identify any brown dwarfs.


Let me tell you; A brown dwarf entering our Solar System would do a lot more than comets...

Gravitational Attraction - EQ, Tsunami's, Weather, Messing up our Orbit (Within reason).

Why?

Because that's how gravity works.

The Vatican owns and operates one of the largest Infra Red Telescopes here in the U.S.. (It is called Lucifer by the way) It is the only way to see a Brown Dwarf Star. Today they just started up the largest Infra Red telescope array in the world. Its in the high desert in Chile. They either found it and want a closer look or they know its out there and they want to find it.

People need to understand that our Solar System is moving through a new part of the Milky Way every day at lets say 30,000 miles an hour. Our planets don't spin around the sun all flat and goofy. The Sun drags us through space like a giant spinning top with the point being the sun. Its not so much that new things are heading at us anymore than we are heading at IT!!

They have no clue what is in our way and with the combined approach speed we will have very little time to do squat about it.

Since CNN has not redacted the story as a mistake, one would have to infer that that the story simply fell off their radar, or... The Government has a forced media blackout on the subject. Either way, could explain the increasing number of comets, asteroids and meteors lately in 2013...

I knew your post sounded fimilar as if it was copy and pasted directly from another link. You forgot to use the external text or quote button for your post because not a single letter you said in the OP is of your own words.

Source - Before it's News

You say Youtube was your source when you got it from before it's news? Everybody knows not to take youtube too seriously because things are easily made up nor to take MSM seriously because they never tell the truth regardless. Before it's News isn't a source at all so therefore, I wouldn't take this too seriously if I were you.

Not really. The X in this case is the Latin letter "x" which stands for "unknown". Planet X is a term for any possibly existing Solar System planet out there that hasn't been yet discovered. Pluto was the Planet X when its presense was guessed by astronomers but before it was actually discovered. en.wikipedia.org...


Or does the X stand for Planet #10?

never take anybody's word when it comes to space. nobody knows # about it and thats the way it is.

Nice find. I have watched a few videos by NASA regarding the possibility of "planet X" but then they disappear.

People seem to forget, in the 80s, NASA recognized the possibility of an extra planetary body. In 1983, NASA launched the IRAS (Infrared Astronomical Satellite), which was set out to locate the possible giant. The Washington Post summarized an interview with the IRAS scientists.

Here is an article published 4 days after the launch,

Clues Get Warm in the Search for Planet X

This article, was written a year later,

U.S. News and World Report

Planet X — Is It Really Out



There are also many curious photos of said brown dwarf that apparently leaked from sources,


(Some believe this to be planet X... although it has been linked to other sources)

Do I believe it's there? Not sure...but I definately think there is a possibility.

That means that Garry Coleman was reanimated by aliens in an off world laboratory and is now headed back in a U.F.O.

He is really pissed off too!


OH HELL no you didn't!!!!!

That is just too damn funny!!!! Good one.

Many ancient cultures recognized the passing of a heavenly body and recorded it. (Not just in Sitchin books!)

That is V838 Mon: Mystery Star

Credit: Lisa Crause (Univ. Cape Town), Warrick Lawson (Australian Defence Force Academy)

Explanation: A leading candidate for the most mysterious star found in recent times is variable star V838 Monocerotis. At a distance of about 8,000 light-years, V838 Mon was discovered to be in outburst in January of this year. Initially thought to be a familiar type of classical nova, astronomers quickly realized that instead, V838 Mon may be a totally new addition to the astronomical zoo. Observations indicate that the erupting star transformed itself over a period of months from a small under-luminous star a little hotter than the Sun, to a highly-luminous, cool supergiant star undergoing rapid and complex brightness changes. The transformation defies the conventional understanding of stellar life cycles. A most notable feature of V838 Mon is the "expanding" nebula which now appears to surround it. Seen above in two separate images from the South African Astronomical Observatory's 1 meter telescope, the nebula is probably a light echo from shells of formerly unseen material lost by the star during its previous evolution. Light-years in diameter, the shells progressively reflect the light from V838 Mon's outbursts, providing an opportunity to look back at the history of this remarkable star's behaviour.

And you're one of the people who sees 'planet x' in the article but doesn't read the article.

Go back and read the articles you put image links to. You'll find that they're talking about an object orbiting way out beyond Pluto. It's in the Oort. It doesn't come into the inner system. You won't see it, because it's too far out to show. It's not "Nibiru". Ancient peoples didn't see it either, because it's out in the Oort.

The IRAS made headlines back in 1983. However, they were incorrect in what they thought they had found:


The observatory made headlines briefly with the announcement on December 10, 1983 of the discovery of an "unknown object" at first described as "possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system."[4][5] Further analysis revealed that, of several unidentified objects, nine were distant galaxies and the tenth was "intergalactic cirrus".[6] None were found to be Solar System bodies.[6][7]


After the IRAS we had the ISO Infrared Space Observatory which while giving us great data, did not detect any large or massive infrared bodies in our solar system.

After ISO, there was Spitzer Space Telescope which also gave us a wealth of data and incredible images of our universe. However, again, no large or massive infrared bodies in our solar system was detected.

Then came Akari from Japan. There was a problem with it, but it did get 94 percent of the sky surveyed.

Once again: no large infrared bodies detected in our solar system.

Then came WISE which actually did two surveys of the skies. This is also the probe that Matese and Whitmire were banking on to help them find their hypothetical planet Tyche.
With WISE being able to detect a Neptune sized planet at 700 AU and Jupiter massed one at up to 1 lightyear away, it was their best bet.

So far the WISE data has not shown any evidence of Tyche or any brown dwarf in or close to our solar system. There is a 2nd part of the program that is combining the sky surveys to bring out more data, however, any large massed IR object in our solar system would have stuck out like a sore thumb out of the first 2 surveys.

The next space IR platform is Herschel an ESA project that is suppose to be launched at the end of this month.

Yeah, I did read the articles...




and a colleague, Dr. Robert Harrington, calculate that the 10th planet should be two to five times more massive than Earth and have a highly elliptical orbit that takes it some 5 billion miles beyond that of Pluto – hardly next-door but still within the gravitational influence of the Sun.




Some astronomers say the heat-emitting object is an unseen collapsed star or possibly a "brown dwarf" — a proto-star that never got hot enough to become a star. However, a growing number of astronomers insist that the object is a dark, gaseous mass that is slowly evolving into a planet.


Did you?

And, I didn't say that the ancients "saw" the planetary body, I said they "recorded" it's passing...as in the knowledge was passed down to them. Research it further of you would like.

I have actually seen a brown dwarf myself. I flushed it down the toilet. I'll take a picture next time.

A good friend of mine is under 4 foot and Spanish...so yes I have seen a brown dwarf....many times.
