In February 2011 amateur astronomers and news junkies have been buzzing over the newest announcements by observatories and scientists that a possible colossal new undiscovered planet may exist hidden in the Oort Cloud which rings our solar system. There are now so many new and confusing news reports on approaching comets, dark stars, brown dwarfsred dwarfsgas giants and other astronomical bodies that it tests credulity. Is the flood of news about these deep space objects actually credible? Is the mass media being overwhelmed with conflicting news reports about these “possible discoveries” for a reason? The typical way that disinformation works is to flood media portals with confusing and conflicting stories on the same topic. That seems to be exactly what is happening now regarding the popular topic of Planet X. It leaves much open to speculation and the internet rumor mill is grinding 24/7.

Below are just a few of hundreds of citizen journalist reports floating around Youtube on what is being discovered, announced, suppressed, edited, altered, deleted, et al. I find the citizen journalism you will see and hear in these collected videos to be sincere, sometimes genuinely endearing and even comical, but consistently urgent. Humanity deserves to know what is coming our way, and we deserve to have a chance to try, at least, to prepare for it.

There’s no doubt something is out there, and someone somewhere does not want humanity to know very much about what it is.

    Will the REAL Planet X aka Nibiru Please Stand Up?

    In 2011 deep space objects, asteroids, planetoids, gas giants and newly discovered  comets are converging in public awareness as the ancient [ Planet X ] Nibiru legend suddenly takes on new relevance. New space discoveries are coming at astronomers so fast it’s hard to keep up. In December 2010 the discovery of Comet Elenin fascinated astronomers, as it was Russian amateur astronomers Leonid Elenin who made the discovery. An asteroid one miles wide is plummeting toward earth as well, keeping observatories on their toes. Now NASA scientists are trying to ascertain just exactly WHAT ELSE is lurking deep within the Oort Cloud, and just exactly how big the object might be. Move over Jupiter. The possible, although doubtful, discovery of a gas giant four times the size of our largest planetary neighbor would throw all current astronomy textbooks into the dustbin, rewriting the known facts about our solar system once again.

    You know how you sometimes can sense that something is present even though you can’t see it? Well, astronomers are getting that feeling about a giant, hidden object in space.

    And when we say giant, we mean GIANT.

    Evidence is mounting that either a brown dwarf star or a gas giant planet is lurking at the outermost reaches of our solar system, far beyond Pluto. The theoretical object, dubbed Tyche, is estimated to be four times the size of Jupiter and 15,000 times farther from the sun than Earth, according to a story in the British paper The Independent.

    Astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette think data from NASA’s infrared space telescope WISE will confirm Tyche’s existence and location within two years.

    The presence of such a massive object in the solar system’s far-flung Oort Cloud could explain a barrage of comets from an unexpected direction, according to a December article at Space.com.

    Its 27 million-year orbit could also explain a pattern of mass extinctions on Earth, scientists say.

    Brown dwarfs are cold “failed” stars; their dimness and lack of heat radiation can make them hard to detect. Gas giants are huge planets – like Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune – that are made up of gases and may lack a solid surface like Earth’s.

    Whitmire told The Independent that Tyche will probably be composed of hydrogen and helium and have colorful spots, bands and clouds like Jupiter.

    “You’d also expect it to have moons,” he said. “All the outer planets have them.”

    Tyche was first hypothesized in 1984 as Nemesis, a dark companion star to the sun. It’s been the subject of astronomical research and debate ever since. In July, another Space.com article said the celestial evidence suggests Tyche could not possibly exist.

    To distinguish it from the Nemesis star theory, Matese and Whitmire are calling their object Tyche, after the good sister of the goddess Nemesis in Greek mythology.

    Their research is published in Icarus, the International Journal of Solar System Studies.

    Up telescope! Search begins for giant new planet
    Tyche may be bigger than Jupiter and orbit at the outer edge of the solar system

    By Paul Rodgers
    Sunday, 13 February 2011

    If you grew up thinking there were nine planets and were shocked when Pluto was demoted five years ago, get ready for another surprise. There may be nine after all, and Jupiter may not be the largest.

    The hunt is on for a gas giant up to four times the mass of Jupiter thought to be lurking in the outer Oort Cloud, the most remote region of the solar system. The orbit of Tyche (pronounced ty-kee), would be 15,000 times farther from the Sun than the Earth’s, and 375 times farther than Pluto’s, which is why it hasn’t been seen so far.

    But scientists now believe the proof of its existence has already been gathered by a Nasa space telescope, Wise, and is just waiting to be analysed.

    The first tranche of data is to be released in April, and astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette think it will reveal Tyche within two years. “If it does, John and I will be doing cartwheels,” Professor Whitmire said. “And that’s not easy at our age.”

    Once Tyche has been located, other telescopes could be pointed at it to confirm the discovery.

    Whether it would become the new ninth planet would be decided by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). The main argument against is that Tyche probably formed around another star and was later captured by the Sun’s gravitational field. The IAU may choose to create a whole new category for Tyche, Professor Matese said.

    The IAU would also have the final say about the gas giant’s name. To the Greeks, Tyche was the goddess responsible for the destiny of cities. Her name was provisionally chosen in reference to an earlier hypothesis, now largely abandoned, that the Sun might be part of a binary star system with a dim companion, tentatively called Nemesis, that was thought responsible for mass extinctions on Earth. In myth, Tyche was the good sister of Nemesis.

    Tyche will almost certainly be made up mostly of hydrogen and helium and will probably have an atmosphere much like Jupiter’s, with colourful spots and bands and clouds, Professor Whitmire said. “You’d also expect it to have moons. All the outer planets have them,” he added.

    What will make it stand out in the Wise data is its temperature, predicted to be around -73C, four or five times warmer than Pluto. “The heat is left over from its formation,” Professor Whitmire said. “It takes an object this size a long time to cool off.”

    Most of the billions of objects in the Oort Cloud – a sphere one light year in radius stretching a quarter of the distance to Alpha Centauri, the brightest star in the southern constellation – are lumps of dirty ice at temperatures much closer to absolute zero (-273C).

    A few of these are dislodged from their orbits by the galactic tide – the combined gravitational pull from the billions of stars towards the centre of the Milky Way – and start the long fall into the inner solar system.

    As these long-period comets get closer to the Sun, some of the ice boils off, forming the characteristic tails that make them visible.

    Professors Matese and Whitmire first proposed the existence of Tyche to explain why many of these long-period comets were coming from the wrong direction. In their latest paper, published in the February issue of Icarus, the international journal of solar system studies, they report that more than 20 per cent too many of the long-period comets observed since 1898 arrive from a band circling the sky at a higher angle than predicted by the galactic-tide theory.

    No other proposal has been put forward to explain this anomaly since it was first suggested 12 years ago. But the Tyche hypothesis does have one flaw. Conventional theory holds that the gas giant should also dislodge comets from the inner Oort Cloud, but these have not been observed.

    Professor Matese suggests this may be because these comets have already been tugged out of their orbits and, after several passes through the inner solar system, have faded to the point that they are much harder to detect.

    So if it is real, Tyche may not only be disrupting the orbits of comets, it may also overturn an established scientific theory.

    Now and again I locate an unusual source of inside information on a topic that seems important enough to repost and examine. Having investigated the new age movement for at least 30 years in my youth, I am aware that about 90% of so-called “channeled” information is nonsense, much of it  designed to sell books, build bank accounts  and keep new age cults afloat. But now and again there is a bleed through from the relevant 10% of information received that is worthy of a second look.

    Below is a video, about 9 minutes long of “channeled data” concerning colossal solar storms which will occur between May and October of this year that will affect the entire world. What follows is the grounded and earth-bound practical science gleaned right here on planet earth which seems to support what the first video is saying.  This post will be updated as more information comes in.

    Giant Solar Blast Headed for Earth

    By Lisa Grossman February 16, 2011 | 5:13 pm | Categories: Space

    The biggest solar blast in four years erupted late Monday, and it’s sending jets of charged particles right at Earth. The spray will spark bright auroras when it hits the magnetosphere in the next 24 to 48 hours.

    A cluster of sunspots called Active Region 1158 unleashed the flare at 8:50 p.m. EST, Feb. 14 [1:50 a.m. UT, Feb. 15]. It was categorized as class X2.2, meaning it’s the most powerful flare since December 2006. The sunspots have continued to let loose smaller flares and may still be active now.

    As Spaceweather.com notes, the sunspots didn’t even exist one week ago, and now cover a swatch of sun wider than Jupiter.

    NOAA forecasters estimate a 45 percent chance of geomagnetic activity on Thursday, Feb. 17, when the bulk of the radiation hits Earth’s magnetic field. The December 2006 storm was powerful enough to disrupt GPS systems.


    Should the new storm prove as powerful, it could be a preview of what’s expected this year and in 2012, as the sun reaches an expected maximum in its natural cycle of activity.

    There is, however, a silver — and green, and yellow, and glowing — lining to the flares. In higher latitudes, where the sun’s ion spray is pulled by Earth’s magnetic poles, collisions between solar particles and atoms suspended in our magnetosphere produce photon sparks. Together these form the aurora borealis, or northern lights, and it looks like Earth is in for quite a show.

    What’s more, though a full moon often outshines the auroras, this storm may be so powerful as to mix moonlight and northern lights in one spectacular swirl. So look up! And if you take pictures, send us your best shots. If we get enough, we’ll create a reader gallery.
