Are you serious guy? You give me a grade 7 astronomy lesson? Obviously you didnt read correctly what I wrote; I said the planets of the second sun
wouldnt be visible because they do not emit their own light, and they are REFLECTING light from a BROWN DWARF star.
Im not an idiot, I know basic astronomy as anyone else... Then you make a useless point about Saturn and Jupitar looking bright in the sky - no
kidding.. They are reflecting a YELLOW STAR. The point I was making is the 7 planets of this so-called 'Wormwood' would be reflecting a brown
dwarf.. Which is dim.
I would recommend you take some literature classes.
Point 1) Your reply is sarcastic and abusive, normally indicating no real way to counter what I have stated in my previous post.
Point 2) As you stated, "7th grade Astronomy", yet your above statement shows that you either didn't pay attention in the 7th grade, or you simply
do not remember the information.
If another star system were to be approaching, or orbiting us in such a manner to where the planets that orbit around it will come very close or into
our solar system, the light from our own sun would reflect off of them just as it does with the planets within our own system.
Or did you really think that our star will only allow light to be reflected off objects in our own system?
Even as small as some of the dwarf planets are in the Kuiper Belt can be detected by the very, very faint sun light reflecting off of them, even
though the sun at those distances simply looks like a very bright star in the sky.
A planet as massive as 4 Jupiters, even at that distance would stick out like a very sore thumb.
And the Kuiper Belt is 30 to 50 AU out. The speed at which this system would have to travel to get here in just a few days, or even a few weeks is so
great, that there would be no way for it to be in orbit around our sun at all.
You see, the further away you get from a star, the less escape velocity is......here, at the orbit of the Earth, solar escape velocity is about 30
km/s. Out in the Kuiper Belt, it's less than 5 km/s....
So any star orbiting our sun would have to be moving not too fast, the any planets orbiting that star, again, have to follow Orbital
Mechanics.........which means in order for anything out there to be coming at us to wreck havok with it's gravitational mass would be quite visible,
because it would be more than near enough for our sun's light to be reflecting off of it.
Who cares about the light from it's star? Ours would be lighting it up like a spot light by now......
And since you didn't seem to understand that.......then yes, I think you do need a refresher in "7th grade Astronomy"
Now, do you have anything constructive to offer that can counter this basic astronomy and physics?
Or are you going to continue to make sarcastic and abusive posts? I can tell you from all the Nibiru threads I debated in all last year that, it
really won't help your case.
