First it was the moon hoax, then the Mars hoax and now astronomers warn there's a galaxy hoax.
An article in Viewzone Magazine, which has prompted a number of calls to the astronomical community, says that new evidence from a survey of the skies known as 2MASS, 'proves' we come from an alien galaxy.
It says that our sun and all its planets do not belong to the Milky Way but rather to a stream of stars being stripped from a dwarf galaxy known as Sagittarius Dwarf.

But astrophysicist Dr Denis Sullivan, from Victoria University of Wellington, warns that although the article quotes legitimate scientists and their research, the conclusions it draws are false.
The 2MASS survey uses automated telescopes to map the infrared sky at near-infrared wavelengths.
By mapping the positions of thousands of particular stars known as M giants, which are common in the dwarf galaxy but not the Milky Way, scientists have traced the collision between the galaxies that has occurred over billions of years.
