'The outer solar system probably does not contain a large gas giant planet, or a small, companion star,'
-Kevin Luhman of the Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds at Penn State University, University Park, Pa., author of a paper in the Astrophysical Journal describing the results.
Tyche is the hypothetical gas giant that was proposed to be causing mass extinctions on Earth as well as certain cometary influxes. Unfortunately, as new data shows, he may not exist. On 7 March 2014, NASA reported that the WISE telescope had ruled out the possibility of a Saturn-sized object at 10,000 AU, and a Jupiter-sized or larger object out to 26,000 AU. However, as I mentioned many months ago, The Planet X-based mass extinction theories were somehow rul…

This idea is not as far fetched as it seems. There are PERTURBATIONS in the Trans-Neptunian region that are currently unexplained. Meanwhile, astronomers have proposed an undiscovered planet, called Tyche, may lurk in the Oort Cloud. This blog explores a bolder idea, that Tyche may be a Black hole. If Tyche is a massive ninth planet, it would be 15,000-30,000 AU beyond the orbital ring of the 8 planets, but if he is a black hole, 142,000 AU. A black hole is a hypothetical body in space, believed to be a collapsed star so condensed that neither light nor matter can escape from its gravitational field. This could not account just for the cometary quirks observed by Matese, Whitmire, and Whitman, but also, Tyche and Lykawka and Harrington's P…Read more >
This blog posts attempts to put constraints on Tyche, a hypothetical dark Jupiter in the inner Oort Cloud Tyche, has an issue involving a rogue planet that was detected earlier, PSO J318.5-22. It is 6 times the mass of Jupiter and floats alone in interstellar space, with no Sun. This helps to disprove Tyche's existence. Isn't it ironic this way? We found a rogue planet with no Sun that's 6x as massive as Jupiter but there are some people believing in a planet 4x as massive in our Solar System. Tyche would've already been detected by now. If so, Tyche should be an ice giant, the size of Uranus maybe. However, even this would've already been seen, thanks to it's gravitational tug on the Plutoids. It is not likely that a tenth planet exists, …Read more >
The following article describes how New Horizons would be used to locate a putative trans-Plutonian massive object, dubbed Planet X (PX), predicted earlier by Robert Sutton Harrington and Patryk Lykawka
The radio tracking apparatus of the New Horizons spacecraft, currently traveling to the Pluto system where its arrival is scheduled for July 2015, should be able to reach an accuracy of 10 m (range) and 0.1 mm s^-1 (range-rate) over distances up to 50 au. This should allow to effectively constrain the location of a putative trans-Plutonian massive object, dubbed Planet X (PX) hereafter, whose existence has recently been postulated for a variety of reasons connected with, e.g., the architecture of the Kuiper belt and the cometary flux from th…Read more >
Tyche, the hypothesized 5th gas giant hiding in the Oort Cloud, is believed to have be causing orbital snags in the Long period comets. Matese, Whitmire and their colleague Patrick Whitman first proposed the existence of this planet in 1999, based on observations of the orbits of long-period comets. Most astronomers agree that long-period comets (those with orbits of thousands to millions of years) have a roughly isotropic distribution; that is, they arrive at random from every point in the sky. Because comets are volatile and dissipate over time, astronomers suspect that they must be held in a spherical cloud tens of thousands of AU distant (known as the Oort cloud) for most of their existence. However, Matese and Whitmire claimed that r…Read more >
I hope you've heard of Tyche, the giant 5th gas giant in the Oort Cloud proposed by Dan Whitemire and John Matesee that's believed to have been gathered from data by WISE.Most astronomers agree that long-period comets (those with orbits of thousands to millions of years) have a roughly isotropic distribution; that is, they arrive at random from every point in the sky.

In 1787, William Herschel announced the discovery of six satellites of Uranus. Herschel here made a mistake -- only two of his six satellites were real (Titania and Oberon, the largest and outermost two satellites), the remaining four were just stars which happened to be nearby (...I think I've heard this story before.... :-)Read more >
Uranus unlocked the secrets of the paranormal and revolutionized the sex industry as it transited through Scorpio between 1975 and 1981.
This was the time we left soft rock and went full swing into the disco era with Uranus-ruled John Travolta strutting his stuff in 1977-78. There was an unmistakable sexual awakenining or liberation occuring during the Uranus in Scorpio transit; people explored and experimented freely, the sex industry took off like a rocket, gays and lesbians came out of the closet, and AIDS first reared it's ugly head.
There was also a genuine attempt, on the part of the Uranus-ruled(anyone with a personal planet in Aquarius), to search or uncover deep mystical or occult truths previously hidden from society. The nature of…Read more >
The Astrological Definition of a Planet
Astronomy will always be in a quandary as to what constitutes the term "planet" because they are dealing soley with physical or material considerations. Astrology, on the other hand, also takes into account the spiritual or esoteric component, which is just as important, if not more so.
Basically, a planet, in astrology, is a sphere or world that is bestowed with great spiritual power or significance. More specifically, it is a visible representative of one of the twelve zodiac signs with all of its attributes and functions. Zodiac signs are divine spiritual energies which manifest through matter -in this case, the planets. There are twelve signs, which in turn necessitate twelve planets.

According to astrology we have twelve main senses with which to experience the fullness of our reality -one for every planet or sign of the zodiac.
1 Aries/Mars - our sense of Life/Being/Self/Movement
2 -Taurus/Venus - our sense of Touch/Substance/Ownership/Worth
3 Gemini/Mercury - our sense of Thought/Perception/Speech/Communication
4 Cancer/Moon - our sense of Security/Home/Fullness/Belonging/Memory
5 Leo/Sun - our sense of Ego/Centeredness/Warmth/Love/Playfulness/Creativity

The Nibiru cataclysm is a supposed disastrous encounter between the Earth and a large planetary object (either a collision or a near-miss) which certain groups believe will take place in the early 21st century. Believers in this doomsday event usually refer to this object as Planet X or Nibiru. The idea that a planet-sized object will collide with or pass by Earth in the near future is not supported by any scientific evidence and has been rejected as pseudoscience by astronomers and planetary scientists.
Real planets are born from vast clouds of gas and dust encircling their parent stars. The non-existent planet Nibiru appears to be the brainchild of Zacharia Sitchen, who apparently introduced it to the world in his book The 12th Planet in …Read more >
Neptune's moon Triton is currently getting closer and closer to the Roche limit. Predictions are that some 3.6 billion years from now, Triton will pass within Neptune's Roche limit. This will result in either a collision with Neptune's atmosphere or the breakup of Triton, forming a ring system similar to that found around Saturn. Bad news: We won't be around (duh!) and the Earth will have already become hot and Venus-like, courtesy of the Sun, which is still in the main sequence but getting hotter.Read more >

Before Uranus was discovered in 1781 the world was very much an autocratic or feudal type of society where only the rich and powerful ruled with an iron grip. There was the Sun(the ruling elite), the Moon(the general populace), the merchants and educators(Mercury), the growers and artisans(Venus), the military(Mars), the clergy(Jupiter), and the wise men or elderly(Saturn). Uranus' discovery unleashed the scientific and rebellious nature of man which sought truth and freedom and no better is this exemplified than in the colonial movements from Europe to the Americas beginning around 1500 AD. Tired of the oppressive and autocratic rule under which they lived, a brave group of souls rebelled and ventured across the great Atlantic in search o…Read more >

The Kuiper belt terminates suddenly at a distance of 48 astronomical units (AU) from the Sun (by comparison, Neptune lies 30 AU from the Sun), and there has been some speculation that this sudden drop-off, known as the "Kuiper cliff", may be attributed to the presence of an object with a mass between that of Mars and Earth located beyond 48 AU. The presence of a Mars-like planet in a circular orbit at 60 AU leads to a TNO population incompatible with observations. For instance, it would severely deplete the plutino population. Astronomers have not excluded the possibility of a more massive Earth-like planet located further than 100 AU with an eccentric and inclined orbit. Computer simulations by Patryk Lykawka of Kobe University have sugge…Read more >
While scientists had expressed hope that once-in-a-lifetime Comet ISON had survived after a close pass by the sun on Thanksgiving day, those hopes have faded and a team of scientists dedicated to observing the comet have declared it dead.
They wrote a cute and geeky obituary:
Born in a dusty and turbulent environment, comet ISON spent its early years being jostled and struck by siblings both large and small. Surviving a particularly violent first few million years, ISON retreated to the Oort Cloud, where it maintained a largely reclusive existence for nearly four billion years. But around 3-million B.C., a chance encounter with a passing star coerced ISON into undertaking a pioneering career as a Sungrazer. On September 21, 2012, ISON made itse…Read more >
STOCKHOLM (AP) — A comet that gained an earthly following because of its bright tail visible from space was initially declared dead after essentially grazing the sun. Now, there is a sliver of hope that Comet ISON may have survived.
New images, basically faint smudges on a screen, being analyzed Friday showed a streak of light moving away from the sun that some said could indicate it wasn't game over just yet.
VIDEO: A snippet of hope
"It certainly appears as if there is an object there that is emitting material," said Alan Fitzsimmons, an astronomer at Queens University in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Basically a dirty snowball from the fringes of the solar system, scientists had pronounced Comet ISON dead when it came within 1 million miles of…Read more >
The Nemesis theory postulates that every 26 to 30 million years, life on Earth is severely jeopardized by the arrival of a small companion star to the sun. Dubbed “Nemesis” (after the Greek goddess of retribution), the companion star”through its gravitational pull”unleashes a furious storm of comets into the inner solar system that lasts anywhere from 100,000 years to two million years. Of the billions of comets sent swarming toward the sun, several strike the Earth, triggering a nightmarish sequence of ecological catastrophes. This theory has been abandoned since 2011, and a fairly recent study shows that Nemesis himself would destabilize the 3 last planets-Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Nemesis would make our solar system a binary star sys…Read more >
The Kuiper Belt suddenly terminates at 48 AU. FYI, Neptune is at 30 AU from the Sun. The number of mini planets like Pluto and Quaoar quickly decrease. As you can see, something is really going wrong here. Computer modelling by Patryk Lykawka of Kobe University has claimed that the gravitational attraction of an unseen major planet, perhaps the size of Earth or Mars, might be responsible. To have any real affect on the Kuiper belt, they believe this putative planet to lie between 50 and 72 AU and be between the mass of Earth and Mars. Another guess is that this putative planet is a frozen world between the sizes of Uranus and Earth, but less massive and having an highly elliptical orbit that takes it out to 5 billion miles from the Sun, ha…Read more >
A swing high above Saturn by NASA's Cassini spacecraft revealed this stately view of the golden-hued planet and its main rings. The view is in natural color, as human eyes would have seen it. This mosaic was made from 36 images in three color filters obtained by Cassini's imaging science subsystem on Oct. 10, 2013. The observation and resulting image mosaic were planned as one of three images for Cassini's 2013 Scientist for a Day essay contest.
Saturn sports differently colored bands of weather in this image. For instance, a bright, narrow wave of clouds around 42 degrees north latitude appears to be some of the turbulent aftermath of a giant storm that reached its violent peak in early 2011. The mysterious six-sided weather pattern known …Read more >

This rant goes to ImhotepBallZ who floods this wiki with fake info on Tyche, which does NOT exist!!!
Are there discovered planets in our Solar System? FUCK NO!!!
While anything is possible, it is not likely that there is another planet lurking within our solar system. Careful monitoring of the perturbations of the sun has ruled out anything larger than Eris. There is a possibility of the existence of a couple of "planetoids" that reside within the asteroid belt, and an even greater possibility of one out in the Oort cloud, or beyond. They would, however, be considered dwarf planets for the same reason Ceres, Pluto, MakeMake, and Eris are-THEY HAVEN'T CLEARED THEIR ORBITS YET!!! Neptune and Pluto were found because we knew where to look in sp…

God cannot possibly exist, as he would've been detected many years ago and be imaged by Hubble and Voyager
If God was real outside of outside of our Solar System, Hubble would easily detect him and take breath-taking pictures. He is the creator and would've been one of the first sights by Hubble. Also, IRAS would easily detect heat from him. If he was inside our Solar System, he would severely affect the orbits of Pluto and MakeMake and also would've been detected long ago, through his disturbing signature on the paths of the dwarf planets. Meanwhile, I count on Hubble, WISE, New Horizons, the Voyagers, and Pioneer 11 to disprove God's existence.

Although they appear as small points of lights in the night sky, many of these stars are f***ing gargantuan. Some of these stars, if they replaced the Sun, would engulf some of the planets. For example, Betelguese would engulf Mercury, Venus, and possibly Earth and Mars.Read more >

All of the 2 newly discovered planets beyond Saturn have long-term orbits which exceed the average life span and which may signify that we are moving towards longer life spans ourselves(or that the possibility is certainly there). In ancient times, the life span was about 29 years old, which is close to Saturn's orbit. Man can now live to 84, close to Uranus's orbit. What this all means is that we are moving towards an even higher number! Neptune with its 165-year orbit is certainly pointing towards this goal.
Result: 162 year old peopleRead more >
In ancient times, humans noted that while most stars remain fixed, 7 moved against the background of stars. The most notable were, of course, the Sun and Moon, but 5 others were also observed: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Copernicus's system demoted the Sun and Moon and added Earth to the list of planets. Since then, 2 more planets have been discovered: Uranus in the 18th century and Neptune in the 19th. Also, dwarf planets have also been observed: Ceres was discovered in the 19th century, Pluto in the 20th and MakeMake and Eris in the 21st. :)Read more >

NOTE: THIS PAGE IS ONLY A SPECULATION, ITS ONLY A SPECULATION! :
The visible solar system from Sun to Saturn has its invisible counterpart which is smaller and of course much farther. Both halves our solar system have seven main bodies; one solar or sub-solar, four terrestial or sub-terrestial, and two giants or sub-giants, making six different classes in all.
4 major planets and the Sun's binary are out there, just waiting to be found.
The Sun in system A corresponds with its binary in system B. Mercury corresponds with a tiny as yet unknown planet closest to the binary. Venus corresponds to another unknown body second from the binary. Earth corresponds to a 3rd unknown planet and both are central to both systems with three bodies on either…Read more >
Nibiru, the Winged(or Horned) Disc
Many believe that since Nibiru causes so much fear, chaos, and destruction, that it is a reptillian or satanic instrument of war. In fact, the Dark Star and its entire system of planets may be a counterfiet system to our own, and domininantly alien or reptilian. Is this the domain of Lucifer and his fallen angels -the "outer darkness" of which the Bible speaks of, with the Dwarf Planets acting as Guardian of the Gates to Hell?
Do we have a miniature version of Nibiru and the Dark Star within our very own planet? If our hollow earth can be likened to to a cosmos or solar system and its inner central sun to a star around which other objects (representing planets) revolve, then we have a similar model, only on…Read more >
