Yet, too many varied sources during the period in the 1980's, as well as one in a key 1992 article, spoke of the same findings. And it is therefore important that this data be revisited, instead of simply allowing this critical information to get buried - along with its significance. That would only serve the whim and or paranoia of certain individuals with media sway. With that said, this what we know.
Before I go on, I'd just like to say that I am intentionally trying to avoid saying 'US Govt this' and 'Washington DC that'. Because, well the 14th amendment (one's right to due process) was written out of the constitution by the previous presidential administration (very convenient and well timed, no?). And I really don't want to be locked under some remote prison without a phone call. I just want to share my findings on Planet X. That said, I'll continue.
On January 25, 1983, NASA launched the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS). During its roughly ten month time in operation, IRAS detected an object in space that was / is 'possibly as large as Jupiter'. NASA scientists working with the IRAS project also stated that this object was so close to Earth that it 'could be part of our solar system'. These facts regarding this mysterious mass were reported in a highly controversial article that was published in The Washington Post by reporter, Peter O'Toole. The story was entitled, "Possibly as Large as Jupiter; Mystery Heavenly Body Discovered". And was released on December 30, 1993, eleven moths after the telescope-carrying IRAS was launched.
A second article entitled, "Planet X - Is It Really Out There", was released by US News and World Report on September 10 1984. This piece stated that according to NASA scientists, a force generated by something invisible to the naked eye, was 'mysteriously tugging at the orbits of Urans and Nepune'.
And lastly, in 1992 a NASA press release stated the following, "Unexplained deviations in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune point to a large outer solar system body of 4 to 8 Earth masses, on a highly tilted orbit, beyond 7 billion miles from the sun."
The commonality of these reports were initially received with agreement by the better part of the astronomical community. And a conclusion was drwan that something is definitely out there.
published in December 1983
Most scientists, however admitted that they still had no idea what it was or is.
Around the same time, the New York Times published an articles that said, in not so many words, that apparently the only thing left to do regarding Planet X was to 'name it'.
What one might find interesting are these additional facts. On Sept 17, 1984 just one week after the opening story on Planet X was published, the magazine, US News and World Report ran a new article that basically retracted the information given in the story that ran the week before. Another interesting thing to note is the mysterious death of one, Dr. Roberst S. Harrington.
Dr. Harrington was the chief astronomer for the US Naval observatory. He had gone to New Zealnd in 1991 with an 8 inch telescope because it was one of the ideal locations from which Planet X could be viewed. The calculations made by Harrington during his time in New Zealand showed that The orbit of Planet X was tilted 30 degrees below the ecliptic - our solar system's orbital plane. And that furthermore, this object, Planet X was headed toward our inner solar system. In other words, Planet X was shown by Dr. Harrington to be approaching the obital perigee toward which it is now headed, as far back as 20 years ago.
Strangely however, Dr. Robert Harrington died suddenly before he was ever able to properly publish these findings. Better said, Harrington sent back news of his findings. Then suddenly dropped dead of esophageal cancer before ever being able to pack up and return home to what would no doubt have been a 'highly publicized' press conference. I don't know about you, but I find the timing of Dr. Harrington's death curious to say the least.
It should be mention that DR. Harrington's stay in New Zealand lasted until 1993. It was in that year that he died. However, what we now know of his findings, indicate that they very likely had an impact on the 1992 NASA press Release mentioned above.
Since the mid-eighties to early nineties period of sincere reporting on Planet X, many scientists in the astronomy field who were once advocates of the 12th Planet's validity have since reversed their stories and become part of the movement to write Nibiru off as a comet or some other less significant body. I dare say that their health is evidently more important to them than spreading the word. Yet in giving these same individuals the benefit of the doubt, perhaps it is via their efforts to disseminate the real data through less obvious means, that people in search of the truth about the 12th Planet now have the information that we do.
Nevertheless, it would seem from a broad perspective that a great many scientists do - or at one time did think that Planet X was real. Regrettably though, subsequent events since the 80's - 90's period point toward a disinformation campaign that is tantamount to a coverup.
Consider this, In the even that Planet X is real, and is headed this way to wreak havoc amidst life on Earth, how could the powers that be retain control over the masses should indisputable proof of such a colossal event become widely known?
The topic of a new Planet is daunting to say the least. And it is all I can do to keep these postings brief. On that note, I will simply leave with these words until next time... Take what you read in newspapers and hear on the television with a grain of salt; Consider the timing of some of the events that I've cited; Ask yourself questions like, "what are they really doing up there in the International Space Station?"; Or "why the sudden rash of global catastrophies and Solar Flare activity?"; And "what might some of the passages in the bible actually be referring to (eg Edin was actually a own in Ancien Sumer, and the first chapter of the Book of Ezekiel talks about a 'Celestial Chariot')?"; Do some research of your own if you need to. And you decide.
