Linked to the close of the Mayan calendar, a variety of rumors spread regarding ways the world could end back in One popular contender was Nibiru, a supposed planet that some claimed would collide with Earth at the end of that year. But despite the buzz, there's no scientific evidence supporting the alleged planet's existence — and, of course, our planet survived without absorbing a massive impact.
Nibiru has been linked to NASA by various bloggers. Because of this claimed connection, space agency officials put out a statement saying that no big planet was coming to destroy Earth in What follows below is the true science and history of this supposed rogue planet, with reference to a real object, Comet Elenin, that somehow got mixed up in the whole mess.
And we'll also talk about another hypothetical world that may actually exist in the far outer system — Planet Nine. The story began inwhen Zecharia Sitchin wrote "The Twelfth Planet," a book which used Stitchin's own unique translation of Sumerian cuneiform to identify a planet, Nibiru, orbiting the sun every 3, years.
Several years later, Nancy Lieder, a self-described psychic, announced that the aliens she claimed to channel had warned her this planet would collide with Earth in After a collision-free year, the date was moved back towhere it was linked to the close of the Mayan long-count period. When Comet Elenin appeared inmany were concerned that it was the mysterious planet in disguise, despite the fact that planets and comets appear very different under a telescope.
A comet has a gas atmosphere, called a coma, and a tail, while a planet does not. But instead of slamming into the Earth, the comet strayed too close to the sun and broke into pieces. The leftover fragments will continue on their path to the outer solar system for the next 12, years, still bits of comet and not a more cohesive planet. Proponents of the fictitious planet note that, ina scientific paper was published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters which discussed several infrared sources with "no counterparts" that turned up in a survey of the sky.
Such surveys are common in astronomy and usually involve follow-ups that individually detail the more interesting sources. In the follow-up of the survey, most of the sources turned out to be distant galaxies. None were identified as planets. Both papers are available to the public. A planet with an orbit so eccentric that it took 3, years to orbit the sun would create instabilities inside our 4.
After only a few trips, its gravity would have significantly disrupted the other planets, whose own gravitational pushes would have changed the hypothetical world's orbit significantly. The easiest and most verifiable piece of evidence arguing against the existence of the theoretical planet can be performed by anyone: According to the information available, a planet with a 3,year-long orbit that was due to impact Earth in should be available to the naked eye.
Easily performed calculations show that, by Aprilit would have been brighter than the faintest stars viewed from a city, and almost as bright as Mars at its dimmest. This would have made it visible to astronomers everywhere.
The Nibiru Cataclysm: Has Planet X Returned To Our Solar System?
The most common rebuttal to this is the cry of "Cover up! On top of that, most of the thousands of professional astronomers are linked not to the government but rather to private universities. Between the amateur and professional astronomers, there are plenty of people who would have noticed a new "star" in the sky.
Doomsday reports across the internet frequently incite fear, but it's interesting to note they are nothing new. Rumors spread like wildfire on the internet, but the same technology can make it easier than ever to delve into the scientific evidence about such events.
All of the above notwithstanding, there may actually be a big, undiscovered world lurking in the dark, cold depths of the outer solar system.
The evidence for this hypothetical " Planet Nine " has been building over the past few years, as astronomers such as Mike Brown, Konstantin Batygin, Scott Sheppard and Chad Trujillo have noticed weird clustering in the orbits of small objects beyond Neptune. The best explanation, these researchers say, is an unseen "perturber" very far from the sun. Calculations suggest that this Planet Nine may be about 10 times more massive than Earth and orbit perhaps times farther from the sun, on average, than our planet does.
Astronomers around the world are scouring the sky with powerful telescopes as we speak, trying to spot Planet Nine directly. Finally, a note about the name: Brown and Batygin dubbed the putative world "Planet Nine" because, if discovered, it would "replace" Pluto as the solar system's ninth planet.
The International Astronomical Union reclassified Pluto as a dwarf planet inyou probably recall. This can get confusing, because "Planet X" was also the term used for a world once thought to be responsible for supposed oddities in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune.The Nibiru cataclysm is a supposed disastrous encounter between the Earth and a large planetary object either a collision or a near-miss that certain groups believed would take place in the early 21st century.
Believers in this doomsday event usually refer to this object as Nibiru or Planet X. The idea was first put forward in by Nancy Lieder,   founder of the website ZetaTalk.
Lieder describes herself as a contactee with the ability to receive messages from extraterrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli star system through an implant in her brain. She states that she was chosen to warn mankind that the object would sweep through the inner Solar System in May though that date was later postponed causing Earth to undergo a physical pole shift that would destroy most of humanity.
Nibiru: The Nonexistent Planet
The prediction has subsequently spread beyond Lieder's website and has been embraced by numerous Internet doomsday groups. In the late s, it became closely associated with the phenomenon. Sincethe Nibiru cataclysm has frequently reappeared in the popular media, usually linked to newsmaking astronomical objects such as Comet ISON or Planet Nine. Although the name "Nibiru" is derived from the works of the ancient astronaut writer Zecharia Sitchin and his interpretations of Babylonian and Sumerian mythology, he denied any connection between his work and various claims of a coming apocalypse.
A prediction by self-described "Christian numerologist" David Meade that the Nibiru cataclysm would occur on 23 September received extensive media coverage. The idea that a planet-sized object will collide with or closely pass by Earth in the near future is not supported by any scientific evidence and has been rejected by astronomers and planetary scientists as pseudoscience and an Internet hoax.
All the current candidates are in orbits that keep them well beyond Neptune throughout their orbit, even when they are closest to the Sun. The idea of the Nibiru encounter originated with Nancy Lieder, a Wisconsin woman who claims that as a girl she was contacted by gray extraterrestrials called Zetanswho implanted a communications device in her brain. Inshe founded the website ZetaTalk to disseminate her ideas.
She stated, claiming to speak as the Zetans,  that: "The Hale—Bopp comet does not exist. It is a fraud, perpetrated by those who would have the teeming masses quiescent until it is too late. Hale—Bopp is nothing more than a distant starand will draw no closer. Lieder described Planet X as roughly four times the size of the Earth, and said that its closest approach would occur on May 27,resulting in the Earth's rotation ceasing for exactly 5.
This would be followed by the Earth's pole destabilising in a pole shift a physical pole shift, with the Earth's pole physically moving, rather than a geomagnetic reversal caused by magnetic attraction between the Earth's core and the magnetism of the passing planet. This in turn would disrupt the Earth's magnetic core and lead to subsequent displacement of the Earth's crust. Although Lieder originally referred to the object as "Planet X", it has become deeply associated with Nibirua planet from the works of ancient astronaut proponent Zecharia Sitchinparticularly his book The 12th Planet.
According to Sitchin's interpretation of ancient Mesopotamian religious texts, which contradicts conclusions reached by all credited scholars of Mesopotamian history,   a giant planet called Nibiru or Marduk passes by Earth every 3, years, allowing its sentient inhabitants to interact with humanity.
Sitchin, who died indenied any connection between his work and Lieder's claims. Inpartly in response to Lieder's proclamations, Sitchin published a book, The End of Dayswhich set the time for the last passing of Nibiru by Earth at BC, which would mean, given the object's supposed 3,year orbit, that it would return sometime around AD Though Lieder herself has not specified a new date for the object's return, many groups have taken up her idea and cited their own dates.Does Planet Nibiru exist?
Is Nibiru Approaching? The new information on Nibiru is more mysterious than its own origins. Not too many people know the true details of Nibiru, and why it exists in our solar system.
Let me tell you some basics first about this planet. Planet Nibiru, which was referred by the Sumerians as Planet X, was supposedly the 12th planet in our solar system. The true meaning of planet Nibiru is 'Planet of Crossing'. In the hydrophilic of Sumerians, and Egyptian, they talked about how planet Nibiru had an elliptical orbit than a normal horizontal orbit.
The planet took aroundyears to come between Mars and Jupiter, and when it did, it created devastation on all the planets during its flyby. Archaeologist Zecharia Sitchin and Burak Eldem also suggested this planet, which looks a lot like CRwith the similar orbit; however, the crossing path of CR is very different than Nibiru or Planet X.
According to historians, Tiamat, a planet which had lain between Mars and Jupiter aroundmillion years ago, was a victim of Planet X, as Tiamat collided with one of the moon's of Nibiru; it crashed, broke into half, as one half became the asteroid belt, and the other Phobos: Mars moon, while the other half is our home, planet earth.
This strange planet has known to be twenty times bigger than Jupiter, with a burning moon which acts like Nibiru's personal sun. Since Nibiru goes much, much further away from our sun; this theory actually does make sense, and stands out.
Even the Mayan predicted the existence of Nibiru, or according to them, a certain dark energy in shape of a planet which would be coming near earth in the distant future. Every time this planet came around, entire civilization from planet earth were wiped out. James McCaney, an expert on Planet Nibiru and Mayan history explained, around 10, years ago major devastation occurred which destroyed many civilization on our planet.
He also explained how ruined cities in South America were vanished not because of war or plague, but major physical distruction on earth. He also went on to say that before Nibiru passed us by 10, years ago, the North Pole was somewhere in the state of Wisconsin, while South Pole was somewhere in Pacific Ocean. This is why the earthquake that are happening in Japan, Chile and other places, could be due to the fact that magnetic pull from Nibiru is increasing as it nears our plain.
The pull from Nibiru will increase gravitational force of each planet in a rubber band effect. Most of this informaiton is not provided in Wikipedia.
As far as the Mayan dooms day theory is concerned, Nibiru will not be showing up this fast, because even though the earthquakes are happing and floods are taking place; like the one in Japan recently, it is still a good 10 years away where a naked eye can detect it.
We, as a common man, could be in the dark by the big government and NASA, while Mars might be going through some devastating effect on its surface, or planet Mercury and Venus are having major, major earthquakes. In my new science fiction novel Kyirux: The Message of PascalI discuss the same theories and more in a cinematic form. This planet, has a very special role to play in my sci-fi trilogy. Can you feel its presense? Additonal Terms.
Knights of Malta. Secrets of the Pyramids. Bilderberg Group. The Real Aliens. The Reptilians. Planet Nibiru.
Black Hole Secrets.Doomsday prophecies can often find receptive ears. Sure they're grim, but for various reasons, some people actually take comfort in apocalyptic predictions. That doesn't, however, make these prophecies true. A lot of widespread ideas about end times rely on faulty science and nonexistent "evidence. Take the Nibiru cataclysm. It's perhaps one of the worst doomsday offenders.
Most believers say that Nibiru is a mysterious planet that orbits the sun, completing a new trip around the star every 3, Earth years. And supposedly, Nibiru is on a collision course with us. The story goes that Nibiru will someday crash into our home world or, failing that, get close enough to trigger a mass outbreak of natural disasters that'll end human civilization as we know it.
Don't worry; Nibiru is pure fiction. If it was real, there'd be traces of its gravitational influence all over the solar system. No such clues exist. Besides, any planet with Nibiru's alleged orbit likely would've kissed our sun goodbye ages ago, leaving mankind in peace. Nibiru entered the public consciousness in with the publication of " The 12th Planet " by Zecharia Sitchin. We should note that Sitchin himself didn't believe Nibiru posed any immediate threat to mankind.
On the contrary, he thought it was linked to the creation of our species. Yeah, there's a lot to unpack here. The late Sitchin was a journalist and a student of Sumerian cuneiform — ancient writings of Mesopotamia and Persia mainly on clay tablets. Somewhere down the line, he became convinced that Homo sapiens are not the product of natural selection — at least, not entirely. According to his questionable interpretations of ancient Mesopotamian texts and inscriptions, the first humans were bio-engineered by some aliens called the Annunakiwho once colonized southeastern Africa.
Sitchin claimed these beings hailed from Nibiru, a hitherto-undiscovered planet. His writings state that Nibiru approaches Earth once every 3, years and then retreats to the depths of space. As for Nibiru, it was destined to become an object of fear. Starting in the mids, the mythic planet was incorporated into a slew of doomsday theories. One psychic predicted that Nibiru would fly past us in the yearcausing mass destruction en route.
Obviously, this didn't happen. But Nibiru kept making headlines. Many proponents of the faux apocalypse thought Nibiru was going to strike Earth that December, vindicating their beliefs about the Mayan Long Count calendar. More recently, insome Christian fundamentalists declared that Nibiru or a similar object was fast approaching and would soon herald the apocalypse. Let's take this opportunity to try and put some minds at ease. To recap, Nibiru supposedly has an orbital period of 3, Earth years.
On its face, that claim seems plausible. After all, it takes the minor planet Sedna which actually exists an incredible 11, Earth years to finish one trip around our sun. But Sedna gives the sun a wide berth. Scientists use astronomical unitsor AUs, to measure some of the vast distances in the cosmos. One AU is equal to about 93 million miles million kilometerswhich is the average distance between Earth and the sun.
Even at its closest point to the sun, Sedna is 76 AUs away from the life-giving star — putting it far beyond NeptuneUranus and the much-maligned Pluto.
Yet Nibiru is supposed to make regular forays into the inner solar system, which is the domain of Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. Using these criteria, Bruce McClure at Earthsky.From ancient Sumerian texts, there was a description that our creators came from a yet discovered planet that enters our Solar System ever 3, years. The texts said that they were known as the Nephilimand that they had colonized Earth overyears ago.
This was done in the middle East and is why we find the Great Pyramid and adjacent pyramids in alone with constellations in our Solar System. They created portals on Earth highly magnetic areas to send their minerals back to Nibiru. The alien leaders did not like this interbreeding and chose not to warn humankind about the impending doom on Nibiru in BC that would eventually cause the great flood here on Earth.
However, one of the Annunaki takes it upon himself to inform Noah of the impending doom so that he can help avoid the races extinction. From there, the Annunaki promise to return in time but leave humans alone to rule the planet. After entering inNibiru went on to influence the orbits of the planets in our system, changing their axes and poles along the way.
The short answer is because of NASA. They decided to question the true orbit and return of Nibiru to our Solar System. The US government had urged them that it was required that they deny the existence of Nibiru in order to not cause widespread panic throughout the world.
NASA then prepared a very well-built simulation that projected the orbit of Nibiru. The simulation done by NASA computers presented visually not only the displacement of Nibiru in its orbit, but also the orbits of all the planets of the solar system.
The goal of the video was clear for any scholar, confuse everyone with a false orbit path for Nibiru. That goal, was accomplished as everyone thought there was nothing to be seen or any adverse effects for us on Earth. Nibiru, by all definitions, concepts and research scholars in the field, is a red or brown dwarf star that carries along with it seven planets orbiting around each other; therefore it is a Mini Solar System.
Nibiru is close to 5 times than Jupiter. So by turn, it is times larger than the earth! With the gigantic size, it has very strong gravitational pull and it influences our oceans and all magnetic fields. The core of the Sun is only 65 times that Nibiru. The emissions are in the ultraviolet solar radiation level range from 0 to 16 are currently at 15, and the normal is between 9 and 10 units.
This was caused by the approach of Nibiru towards the Sun. Because of the magnetic and gravitational intensity of Nibiru, it influenced the Sun in a way that it initiated the reversal of its magnetic poles. The same reversal is also happening here on Earth: gravitational pull and magnetic fields. In order to perform this reversal, these two forces acting together are required!If you have done much reading on the Annunaki, you probably have at least a passing familiarity with Nibiru.
In case you are not familiar with Nibiru, the theory is that there is a planet or other large body in our solar system that remains undiscovered by modern astronomers. According to the myths and legends surrounding the Annunaki, Nibiru is their homeworld. The last time Nibiru was close to earth, its presence caused the Great Flood, a motif which crops up with astonishing consistency in religious texts and mythologies from around the world.
If the legends are true, humanity did survive of course —but could we survive a second encounter with Nibiru? Maybe not. If Nibiru is real and is indeed in a long orbit, its return is inevitable.
It also played a key role in a viral marketing campaign for the film Image Source: CalTech. Now, Nibiru further reading has entered the public eye for another reason. For the first time ever, mainstream science has made an astounding discovery which may indicate that Nibiru is real.
The research was published by the California Institute of Technology in January of The model in question would answer a number of other mysteries if indeed a ninth planet is in orbit around the sun. The studies were conducted using computer simulations and mathematical modeling by Mike Brown and Konstantin Batygin.
How huge? According to mathematical models and simulations run by the two Caltech researchers, the ninth planet may have 5, times the mass of Pluto! That is no dwarf planet. In fact, that makes it larger than any of the eight planets we do know about.
The biggest piece of our solar system may be orbiting unseen! How did this discovery come about? Well, it all has to do with the Kuiper Belt. This is a group of small objects outside the orbit of Neptune. The Kuiper Belt contains numerous asteroids and comets as well as other small icy bodies.Is Nibiru real?
Does it take Nibiru 3, years to complete one orbital journey? As you can imagine, the gravitational effects of a sizable planet moving close to the inner solar system would spell big trouble for planet Earth.
Earth has been acting up lately with an increase in earthquakes, volcanoes, global warming oops. Open your mind a little and stop believing everything our so called scientists and NASA folks have to say.
Every week NASA seems to have learned something new that was unthinkable. First you have to understand that we might be part of a binary solar system. NASA just found a binary solar system last year. Would it be too far off to believe that a planet can share both solar systems? If you took the time to watch this video, then you might be interested in this newspaper article and these Planet X abstracts. Explore this site and ask questions and share your thoughts.
Keep an eye out for a blue star. Did this article just come out? Yes, it did. What they are not telling you is that this is our Second Sun Dead Star. This is the Blue Kachina!!!! The single most important aspect of studying history is that it suggests to humanity it is only through understanding the past that humanity has the chance to survive.
There are presently nine known planets in the solar system if you want to include Pluto. Soon after German astronomer a scientist specializing in the study of matter in outer space William Herschel discovered Uranus inscientists noticed that Uranus was changing direction from its predicted orbit.
This led them to hypothesize that there was another planet out there, the gravitational field of which was tugging at Uranus. Neptune showed movement away from its predicted orbit, as well. The search for Planet X continued.A New Planet in our Solar System? NASA Takes a Look
John T. Hollin at Maine University U. From our research, we think Nibiru will appear in December and pass over at the end of April. What year? We already guessed obviously wrong. So maybe? Come on Man!!! It shows the Earth, the Sun, a dead star at 50 billion miles or AU and a tenth planet at 4. Published by H. Stuttman Inc.
