Planet Nine is Found

Updated on December 10, 2016


For years and years, we were told there were only 9 planets in our solar system. Then in 1992, Pluto was downgraded to a dwarf planet after the discovery of several more similar sized planetoids. In 2016, a new planet nine is found and it is exciting news. Why? I will explain.

- Dec. 2016


In 1976, Zecharia Sitchin wrote a ground breaking book called "The 12th Planet" which describe a distant planet called Nibiru. This planet, he coined the term 12th planet due to the fact that in ancient times, they count the Moon and the Sun as the 10th and eleventh heavenly body. This newly described planet was in the Sumerian tablets that he was translating. Later, people also referred to this as Planet X.

What was interesting is that this planet had a very elongated ellipitical orbit which comes around every 3600 years. He also claimed that the planet was populated by an advanced alien race called Anunnaki who helped created the modern homo Sapiens using genetic engineering. The scientists at the time discredited Sitchin's theory and claimed it is impossible for a planet to have such an orbit let alone having a hand in our development. It would turn the theory of evolution on its head.

On 20 January 2016, researchers Konstantin Batygin and Michael E. Brown at Caltech explained how a massive outer planet would be the likeliest explanation for the similarities in orbits of six distant objects, and they proposed specific orbital parameters. The predicted planet would be a super-Earth, with an estimated mass of 10 Earths (approximately 5,000 times the mass of Pluto), a diameter two to four times that of Earth, and a highly elliptical orbit with an orbital period of approximately 15,000 years.

Zacharia Sitchin died in 2010. He would have been thrilled at this new discovery.

I am not sure how this will play out. The show Ancient Aliens on the History channel has expored many aspects of this theory. They are confident that our earth has been visited by advanced alien races in the distant past. Many of our myths around the globe were based in part on these alien encounters. Even passages from the Holy Bible are references to aliens and "Gods" that came down from heaven.

What will happen when plant nine makes its appearance the next time around. Will we be here to greet it?

      Buildreps, you may be right. The difference between 3600 and 15,000 years is significant. Also, the size difference in the two estimates. Never the less, for one to exist at all is fascinating. One will have to give Sitchin more credit and respect for sticking to his belief when all others in the scientific community was against it. If this is true, you have to wonder what else Sitchin was right about too...

      Very interesting subject, Jack Lee. Planet Nine hasn't been spotted yet, but all mathematical proof about its presence is there. All very distant objects have been predicted mathematically and then later spotted. Sitchin interpreted from the ancient texts that Nibiru orbits every 3600 years around the sun. Planet Nine is believed to be orbiting every 10,000 to 20,000 years around the sun in a very elliptical orbit. These estimations are so rough that it can be easily 24,000 as well. Then we might have found the source of earth's precession every 24,000. We shall see. But it seems to me that Sitchin was speaking about another planet than Planet Nine.
