"Morever," says Neugebaur, "if we can show that our own solar system is still creating planets,we'll know that it's happening around other stars, too."Hazelwood, M.,(2001) Blindsided: Planet-X Passes in 2003. Earthchanges.(ISBN 1-931743-40-1. First Publish.)In January 1981, several daily newspapers carried a report that
Dr. Richard Harrington and hiscolleague, Dr. Thomas Van Flandern, of the US Naval Observatory, had told a meetingof the American Astronomical Society that “irregularities in the orbit of Pluto indicatedthat the solar system contained a 10th planet.”
A similar story was run by the New YorkTimes on June 19, 1982. “One year later, in 1983, the newly launched IRAS (Infrared Astronomical Satellite) quickly foundPlanet-X: “
A heavenly body as large as Jupiter and part of this solar system has beenfound in the direction of the constellation of Orion by an orbiting telescope” –
wrote theWashington Post. In
August 1988, a report by Harrington calculated that its mass is probably 4 times that of Earth
.” In 1992, Harrington and Van Flandern published their findings and their conclusionthat there is an ‘intruder’ planet. The search was narrowed down to the southern skies, belowthe ecliptic.Planet-X is likely to be a brown dwarf whose orbit takes it back and forth between our Sun andour Sun’s twin. Planet-X has an orbit which takes 3660 years.“When a planet’s orbit is between two suns, instead of round one, that orbit is a bit peculiar. Itspends 99.99% of its time slowly going away from one of the suns…to reach the half-waypoint. Then…the gravity of the sun it’s approaching takes over, and in a relative flash it travels theother half of its journey. Planet-X reached the halfway point sometime in 2000. It only takesabout 3 years to travel the rest of the distance…It’ll be cooking with its greatest speed by thetime it passes. Once it crosses Pluto’s orbit, it will only take 90 days to pass right betweenEarth and the Sun.”The most likely date for its passage and effect on planet Earth is springtime 2003. In 1982, evenNASA, momentarily officially recognized the existence of Planet-X:“An object is really there beyond the outermost planets.”Today, NASA is trying to sweep the danger under the carpet, claiming that it is nothing more thana large asteroid. But, whereas until early 2001, only the largest telescopes could have seenPlanet-X, now even small to mid-level observatories are sighting it. On the 4th of April 2001,the Lowell Observatory reported its magnitude and co-ordinates.
