While several hypotheses have been put forward to explain this alignment, to date, a theoretical model that can successfully account for the observations remains elusive.

I have my doubts, but since I'm not an astronomer, I'll keep an open mind. After speaking with my father, Amnon Sitchin, brother to Zecharia Sitchin, Ph D in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering, and also the person who calculated the orbit of Nibiru for my uncle Zecharia, I found an interesting piece of news based on some additonal calculations he did this week: Yes, you heard that right.

I don't know whether the Cal Tech astronomers based their estimated orbital period on a circular or elliptical orbit.

As a result, he is unable to reply personally to your inquiries.

However, this tidbit means that I should not dismiss this planet as being Nibiru based on this estimated orbital time frame.

I obviously need to learn more about planetary motion and astronomy to make any conclusions myself.

Last week we heard new evidence of the existance in our solar system of another large planet, which might be Nibiru.

This week Mathieu Ossendrijver published an article in Science magazine about a cuneiform tablet detailing the position of Jupiter based on geometrical calculations by the Babylonians in 350-50 BCE. "The idea of computing a body's displacement as an area in time-velocity space is usually traced back to 14th-century Europe.

It would dwarf Pluto, at about 4,500 times its mass.
