- On one hand, there seems to be scientific evidence and indications of its existence.
- On the other hand, maybe there isn’t.
We'll get to the pros, but first, let’s start with the cons:
Reasons Other than Nibiru
- What is the definable obvious difference between a “sun dog” and Nibiru? (I’ve looked this up and can’t find an answer.) How do we know these images aren’t sun dogs?
- How do we know the images aren’t faked or optical illusions? Apart from wacky charlatans, many of the light green discs labeled as Nibiru resemble the light green or red discs seen in any photo directed at light (to my eyes, anyway).
- A third of the time I see a photo claimed to be Nibiru near the Sun, I can’t see anything.
However, I did notice unusual visibility regarding several planets. But that could be related to their closeness to Earth or the Sun or, as I found out recently, their position relative to the Earth and Sun.
So I looked up the following planets:
Saturn’s closest approach to the Sun was in 2003 and has been moving farther away until it’ll reach its furthest point in 2018.
However, Saturn was its closest to Earth around May-July 2016. So that could easily explain why it was so visible.
In October 2016, Mars was the closest to the Sun it has been since 2014.
On May 30 2016, Mars was the closest it has been to Earth in 11 years.
So its close approach to both the Earth and the Sun could explain its light and visibility.
Venus came closest to the Sun in July 2016.
And in fact, Venus will attain its greatest brightness in February 2017.
(This article explains the factors contributing to Venus’s brightness, specifically Venus's position as it relates to Earth and the Sun.)
Venus is also extremely close to Earth now and will continue to approach even closer throughout March 2017.
So we see that the brightness and visibility of Venus, Saturn, and Mars are easily explained and don’t mean that another light-giving body (like a brown dwarf star) is shining on them.
The Moon is the outlier here, with pros and cons.
During the Summer, I regularly noticed the Moon in the sky around an hour before sunset.
That’s pretty bright.
I already wrote in Thoughts on the Unusually Visible Erev Yom Kippur Moon of seeing the Moon very early on Erev Yom Kippur afternoon. For the month of October 2016, the Moon was farthest from the Earth on October 4 and closest on October 16. Erev Yom Kippur was October 11. (Then the Moon swung in on November 14 for its closest approach since 1948.) Yet I didn't notice the Moon so early on any other day.
And I’m far from being the only person to notice a wide halo around the Moon at times.
So it seems like the Moon’s increasingly bright and unusual appearance can’t only be explained by its nearness to Earth.
Now for the pros:
Evidence for Nibiru
Oddly, the title is misleading, making it sound like, "New planet? Not so fast!"—as if it was all a big mistake, as if no new planet was discovered...when it is really about they DID discover a new planet with an estimated orbit—so why the misleading title?
Yet just 5 days later, Astronomy magazine reprinted the exact same article:
Yet this time, a sub-headline was included: "Astronomers quietly submitted a research paper claiming they may have found a large planet on the far fringes of our solar system."
So the sub-headline totally contradicts the headline.
And why did they submit such a paper quietly? And why the emphasis on them doing so “quietly”? Usually, astronomers are crowing over this stuff, like when they got their Pluto-Charon images in July with the accompanying discoveries.
Not long after that, I discovered an astronomy forum thread by people knowledgeable in astrophysics. They make some interesting points, like how a disruption (indicating another planet) in Neptune's and Uranus's orbits has been well-known for a while in the astronomy community (which I vaguely remember hearing about years ago) and one commenter observes:
"The field of view of ALMA [the Chile telescope] is very narrow so the probability of finding a planet-sized body in just that position is extremely low. On the other hand its brightness indicates that it's a significant object. Something's not adding up here."
So it seems that there is definitely something visible and provable there. But the thread dies out and this topic isn’t really discussed again.
(FYI: I had to look up the terms appearing in the thread KBO and TNO, which are Kepler Belt Object and Trans-Neptune Object.)
A month later, this article appears:
In the Physics Forum, there are also the following threads:
https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/why-is-planet-x-always-depicted-as-being-blue.884132/ (September 16, 2016)
You'll need to scroll down to the last message in the thread for more links.
And as many (if not all) of you know, Devash has been Tracking Nibiru.
Furthermore, many photos and videos have captured another sun-like object in the sky—and maybe those aren’t sun dogs. I’ve also taken photos of the Sun, but my tablet died and I can’t access them now.
My eyes must just be playing tricks on me, I thought. It must be that all this Nibiru stuff I've been reading is affecting my brain.
Yet within the next day or two, I suddenly came across a post on Shirat Devorah, which indicated that other people also thought they saw the moon tilt.
(Can’t find the link now.)
That’s really weird.
I’ve never thought I’d seen the moon tilt before and it never occurred to me that it could possibly do so. If it was just my imagination, why would so many other people “imagine” the same thing on the same night?
Also, the Moon has been VERY bright for a while now. Even before sunset, when the sky is so light, the Moon isn’t just visible, it’s bright.
Again, does that mean another luminary body is shining on it?
There do seem to be more weather catastrophes, but they can be solely ascribed to God simply waking us up; it doesn’t necessarily need to indicate anything else.
It could mean something else. But it doesn’t need to.
- 5 “named” storms made landfall in the US, more than any other since 2008.
- Hurricane Mathew was the first Category 5 hurricane to hit the Atlantic basin in 9 years.
- This year also showed the most active hurricane season on record for the eastern Pacific.
- And who can forget the 2015 hurricane that hit Yemen, the first since 1922 and the strongest on record?
Tornadoes have gotten a lot of attention, but the truth is that violent (F3-F5) American tornadoes peaked at under 90 in 2011 (2012-2016 all show under 30 violent tornadoes per year) compared to 1974, which saw the largest number of violent tornadoes at close to 140. So violent tornadoes haven't increased. And the seeming increase in minor tornadoes has to do with a better detection system.
Earthquakes really are increasing.
- In 1979, we had 10 major (measuring 7 or more on the Richter scale) earthquakes each year.
- But starting in 1992, we started seeing 12.5 major earthquakes per year.
- And starting in 2010, we started seeing almost 17 major earthquakes per year, although 2014 dipped down to 11 major earthquakes that year, leaping up to 18 major earthquakes in 2015 and 14 in 2016.
Meteor fireballs have also increased.
The number of meteor fireballs in America stood at around 500 in 2005 and has steadily increased to over 9000 in 2015.
Note: Some of this data could be affected by the fact that up until 2014, one system tracked the number of meteor fireballs and then from 2014, NASA tracked it. But NASA still shows a jump of several thousand between 2014 and 2015.
Volcanic activity has also increased.
One study showed that minute changes in the gravitational pull of the Moon and Sun on earth quicken the Earth’s rotation, causing an almost imperceptible shortening of the day (by milliseconds). But this miniscule change possibly corresponds to an increase in volcanic activity due to a massive release of energy. (See Terra Nova.)
Just as one example, in a list going back to 1934, a large percentage of those volcanoes re-erupted in 2011 alone. (Sorry, I lost the link to that list.) Usually, we see 50-60 eruptions of varying degrees per year. But 2010 saw 82 eruptions and 2013 saw 83. And 2015 saw at least 21 MAJOR eruptions.
Again, this doesn’t have to mean that a large brown dwarf system is coming our way. But if a large brown dwarf would indeed coming our way, its gravitational pull would certainly affect Earth in such a way as to increase meteors, volcanoes, and earthquakes.
But what are the spiritual reasons for Nibiru?
And why all the scientific uncertainty?
(Meaning, there doesn't yet seem to be clear, undeniable proof.)
