According to the lunatic fringe we are supposed to be hit by ‘Planet X’ this day — September 23, 2017. Did they realize that it was the anniversary of Neptune, the ‘Planet X‘ of its time, being discovered.

Neptune’s discovery, as I outlined it above, was pretty amazing and a testament to the cleverness of humans. Its existence was determined mathematically! That was 171-years ago. It still has me in awe.

Aren’t We Supposed To Be Hit By Planet X Today?

I just saw a Flying Pig with a flower sticking out of his belly!

This garbage and the ‘flat earthers’ who believe in it just infuriates me, no end.

If you have a modicum of understanding of basic physics or astronomy you would know that a ‘planet‘, even one as small as Mercury, couldn’t just sneak up on us with zero notice. We would see it coming, worst case 24-hours before it hits us. Planets are NOT small. And we, for the last ten years or more, have some fairly sophisticated, automated telescopic technology, around the world, funded by multiple countries, surveying and monitoring the sky for rogue objects likely to come near.

So, if we were going to be hit today, we would have known about it yesterday.

Hoped For ‘Planet X’, The Ninth Planet, CAN NOT Be Named After David Bowie. Period.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access original.

Contrary to what many realize the officially recognized names of celestial bodies are carefully governed and assigned per some very strict guidelines maintained by the ‘International Astronomical Union’ (IAU) — an organization recognized by 74 world powers.

To have the supposed ninth planet (or any other planet in our Solar System) named after David Bowie he would have to be deemed a god.

Yes, there are those that will avow that David Bowie is a god. But, alas, that alone is not enough.

To be considered for planetary naming honors the god ALSO has to be a well established very long term player, such as Venus, Mercury, Jupiter or Saturn, and it has to be a MYTHICAL god. David Bowie is not mythical. So he is ruled out forever, forever.

The current convention is that Dwarf Planets are also named after mythical gods/goddesses THOUGH they don’t have to be, for obvious reasons, as towering as those assigned to the planets.

Comets, if named, are named after the discoverers or the ‘team’ that discovered them. David Bowie did not discover any comets.

Giving stars official names is now in decline and as with planets/dwarfs any and all OFFICIAL names assigned have to be mythical characters.

So the only option for having a (non-satellite) celestial body named after Bowie is to name an asteroid after him — and that has already been done! 342843 Davidbowie.

The Supposed New 9th Planet, The Latest ‘Planet X’, Might Actually Be A ‘Binary Dwarf’.

by Anura Guruge


Check out this 2:10 minute YouTube video by the ‘Science Magazine’ for the QUICKEST & BEST introduction to this supposed 9th planet — the NEW ‘Planet X’.

CoverJPGIn astronomy a ‘binary’ object is an object made up of two objects orbiting around each other. Pluto in reality is a BINARY DWARF; Charon its largest moon in essence a twin rather than a moon per se. So Pluto-Charon is a Double Dwarf.

My feeling is that this new Planet X, if there is one, will also be a Double Dwarf rather than a single planet.

In case YOU are wondering why I might even know anything about this, do NOT forget that I have written a book about “Dwarf Planets” not to mention Comets and Asteroids.
