I do know an astronomy professor (dad of a childhood friend)... I've been contemplating running this stuff by him.

But if you take the stance we can't believe anything NASA tell us, who else do you not trust? How do you know, for example, there are thousands of islands in the Pacific Ocean? Someone told you. How do you know Mars is actually a planet? Maybe it's only 200 miles wide? Maybe the Earth orbits the Moon?

then finally they go and name it after the Greek Goddess of strife and discord.
I always thought it might be Nibiru, but evidence says Niburu is red.
Looking for Planet X? - we have a whole index page on this (supposed) visitor to our solar system
