the early 1990's, calculations by the United States Naval Observatory
have confirmed the orbital perturbation exhibited by Uranus and
Neptune, which Dr.
Thomas C Van Flandern, an astronomer at the observatory, says
could be explained by "a single undiscovered planet". He and a colleague,
Robert Harrington, calculate that the 10th planet should be
two to five times more massive than Earth and have a highly elliptical
orbit that takes it some 5 billion miles beyond that of Pluto.
know today that beyond the giant planets Jupiter and Saturn lie
more major planets, Uranus and Neptune, and a small planet, Pluto.
But such knowledge is quite recent. Uranus was discovered, through
the use of improved telescopes, in 1781. Neptune was pinpointed
by astronomers (guided by mathematical calculations) in 1846. It
became evident that Neptune was being subjected to unknown gravitational
pull, and in 1930 Pluto (was located). The latest
advances in space imaging do not rely solely on orbital perturbations
as the way for locating and identifying possible candidates for
6,000 year old Sumerian descriptions of our solar system include
one more planet they called "Nibiru", which means "Planet of the
crossing".The descriptions of this planet by the Sumerians match
precisely the specifications of "Planet X" (the Tenth Planet), which
is currently being sought by astronomers in the depths of our own
Solar System. Why has Planet X not been seen in recent times? Views
from modern and ancient astronomy, which both suggest a highly elliptical,
comet-like orbit, takes Planet X into the depths of space, well
beyond the orbit of Pluto. We discovered Pluto with our telescopes
just recently in 1930. Is it not possible that there are other forces
at work on our solar system besides the nine planets we know
of? YES!!!! The Sumerian descriptions of Our Solar System are being
confirmed with modern advances in science. This article will show
actual diagrams from the Sumerian times and how the accuracy for
describing the planets is overwhelming!
