Planet Nine is Found
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.

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?

Ancient alien theorists believe that thousands of years ago, extraterrestrials landed on Earth, where they were hailed as gods and helped shape human civilization. But what proof could possibly exist for such an encounter?
