Throughout history, ancient cultures warn of a major cataclysm in the year 2012.There have been tell-tale signs of an approaching cataclysm for a few decades. Theescalation of natural disaster has the scientific community pointing the finger at globalwarming. Although, their findings’ linking the natural disasters to global warmingdeserves merit, their findings are far from conclusive. A report by Dr. William Gray fromColorado State University and Philip J. Klotzbach, posted on weathernewengland.com,in tells that the 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season has had below average activity. In anarticle published by Sam Roberts on the New York Times website on July 31, 2009, hebriefly explains the average temperature in New York City during the summer of 2009.Notably, he states that the temperature for both June and July did not reach 90degrees. It’s well known among amateur astronomers that the Earth is farther awayfrom the Sun when the northern hemisphere is experiencing summer. As a result,Earth’s northern hemisphere is subjected to more direct Sun light. This direct sun lightis the reason for summer high temperatures. By these accounts and many others, thesummer of 2009 may be noted as the “coolest” summer on record.Life on Earth, as we know, would be very different if the Moon did not exist. TheMoon’s gravitational pull helps keeps Earth tilted an angle, relative to the Sun. This tiltis how the four seasons are maintained. In addition, the Moon’s gravitational pull alsoregulates the tidal flows on Earth. The Moon is the closest interstellar body to Earth.Its gravitational influence, as stated, helps maintain the Earth’s climates. With that inmind, it stands to reason: if the Moon can influence the Earth meteorologically, why notgeologically? Scientist has surmised that seismic activity can be linked to the Earth’sgravitational pull. Low level seismic activity is measured worldwide on a regular basis.These low levels seismic activities, over time, can compromise the structural integrity of human infrastructures’. In some severe cases, may result in structural collapse andpossible loss of life. With that in mind, it stands to question: How would the Earth fair if an interstellar body with a mass similar to Jupiter, passes within close proximity toEarth?In January of 1983, NASA launched IRAS (Infrared Astronomical Satellite). IRASis a joint venture between the United States, Great Britain, and the Netherlands. Soonafter IRAS was launch, an article was published in the New York Times aboutobservations made by the satellite. In the article, astronomers announced irregularitiesin the orbits of both Uranus and Neptune. Such irregularities can only be caused by alarge interstellar object of incredible mass. An article published on December 30, 1983by Thomas O'Toole, in the Washington Post, describes an unknown objectapproximately the size of Jupiter. In the article, astronomers surmised that the unknownobject was about 50 trillion miles away from the Earth. In addition, there was somespeculation among the astronomers that the massive object may be on a trajectorytoward Earth. An object with a mass equivalent to Jupiter, moving through the solar system would perturb the orbits and possible rotations of any other interstellar body itsgravitational field may come in contact with.
