PLanet X

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=planet+x

Check out the links ont hat search....

From what my friend told me. in 5 months planet x will be by our planet, and all hell will break loose.... The magnetic poles will switch, gravity will be null for 3 days, and aparently many of the worlds population will also die during that time.

Very interesting stuff.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

If this actually does happen (and I rank this up with Nostradamus prophecies on the probability scale) I plan to stay indoors; wouldn't wanna drift out of the atmosphere, that would suck.

I guess I could tie my car down, too, so it wouldn't float away.

If you clicked on the link on that website regarding the planet's return, it refutes the theory...

like I said its interesting stuff.

I didn't look into it much yet. don't have the time to do that much reading right now, but for every side of it saying it will happen, theres a side saying it wont.

No worries there. These old Benz's are heavy enough to create their own gravitational field. Just climb in it, and your safe!

I plan on stealing a Mclaren F1, pinning the speedo on the sucker, and when gravity releases, I'll have enough momentum to reach the moon.

Of course, I'll suffocate in the vacuum of space, but what a way to go...

I'll be right beside you in an Enzo John.

To be honest I think we have enough Nukes to blow it up.

Yes, it's fascinating and filled with unverifiable data. I ran into this on my trip to the Grand Canyon last year. Our guide recounted all manner of dire Hopi predictions and then blurted out that due to some type of miscalculation, the Mayan "end-year" was really 2003 and not 2012. I'm not sure who is guilty of the miscalculation though, take your pick of the Mayans, the Sumerians, the Hopis, Art Bell,Sylvia Brown...

I always knew Velikovsky was right, Carl Sagan was a rat for shooting him down...

I have followed the sci.astro.amateur newsgroup for many years. The Planet X people have been just killing us with spam. Don't let them get started here!

Joe,

I have an AP 155f7 refractor.

Yes, now that the gas giants are more in the winter and for many other reasons, my observing time is less. When I first started a few years ago, we'd go out in the early winter and it was about 30 degrees F. Now for a city boy like me, that's cold! Other amateur astronomers talk about 5-15 degrees! God bless them!

All in all, a wonderful but brutal hobby.
