Nibiru is a Planet X-class Kupier Belt Object (XKBO) that allegedly is on an elliptical orbit between our own Sun and a dwarf star that may be located 18 times the distance from our Sun to Pluto, outside of Pluto's orbit - an orbit that takes approximately 3600 years to complete.

According to Zacharia Sitchin, the last Earth flyby was during the Biblical Exodus from Egypt, and it, or some other XKBO could be fly past Earth in 2003 and may cause what some scholars and scientists feel could become a human catastrophe - on a Biblical scale!

A group of scientists in Russia in year 2000 held several meetings to discuss the inbound planet discovered from one of their largest observatories. This led to the infamous 2003 Problem.

The top government officials called for a commission to study the problem, which was said to expect to cause “A string of calamities” & "A massive population shrinkage."

They openly wondered whether Russia would still even exist as a country afterwards...

While many American scientists scoff at Sitchin's work, prominent Russian scientists (in consultation with their government), along with several independent researchers around the globe, are deeply concerned that an XKBO could fly past the Earth in 2003 as his work suggests.

Such a flyby could result in a terrestrial catastrophe that could very well place mankind in the cross hairs of a major kill off.


Can we afford to scoff at this threat any longer?


Are there any potential effects of its passing?

It is felt that an XKBO know as Nibiru (and also known as "Marduk") will pass close by our planet in June of 2003. At the moment of it’s passing it is possible that the Earth may be overtaken by its gravitational influence, being a much larger planetary body.

Sometimes referred to as the red comet or red star in some ancient texts, the effects of its passage may range far and wide according to current opinion.

  • The Earth may stop rotating completely for 3 days.

  • Electrical/magnetic storms may occur of an intensity that could cause lasting damage to our global infrastructure.

  • As the Earth passes through tail of Nibiru’s passage, dust and debris may rain down upon our planet compromising our ability to supply food, and most importantly, water.

Nibiru is reported to be four times larger, and twenty three times more dense than the Earth. The Bible states (defining it as Wormwood in The Book of Revelations) that when it passed, its magnetic and gravitational effects upon the Earth’s molten iron core caused increased earthquakes/volcanic eruptions, and other phenomena.

I have noticed over the last ten years, as I am sure the readers of this site also have noticed, the drastic change in our present day weather patterns, increased earthquake/volcanic activity, reports of the gradual slowing of the Earth's rotation and geomagnetic planetary field deviations, and other anomalies.


All of which are allegedly due to the energy being released by our planet in response to the gravitational field that is preceding Nibiru.


Has it been here before?

The Dallas Morning News published an article, written by Tom Siegfried, Science Editor, in the Science Section on February 5th, 2001, titled, “SCIENCE COULD HELP SOCIETIES WEATHER RUINOUS CLIMATE CHANGE.”


The article went on to define certain planetary events that occurred in our far-flung past. Some have placed the dates of these events at: 12,387 BC, 8787 BC, 5187 BC, and1587 BC.

The myths and legends of our society are replete with accounts of gods and their abodes, which strangely correlate to the passage of Nibiru.


Nordic Legend

Nordic mythology identifies the Midgard serpent as the destroyer of Earth come to herald in the age of Ragnarok. Scholars of mythology have postulated that the Midgard serpent is an allegorical depiction of a comet or planetary body that whose proximity to Earth disturbs the oceans.

Nordic mythology goes on to state:

The ship that is called Naglfar also becomes loose. It is made of the nails of dead men; wherefore it is worth warning that, when a man dies with unpared nails, he supplies a large amount of materials for the building of this ship, which both gods and men wish may be finished as late as possible. But in this flood Naglfar gets afloat. The giant Hrym is its steersman. The Fenris-wolf advances with wide-open mouth; the upper jaw reaches to heaven and the lower jaw is on the earth.

This passage could refer to the tail trailing behind the planetary body and extending from the Earth to the Sun. Some researchers also claim that a planet which passes close to another planet can, in theory, tether to the planet it is passing, each linking to the other by the interweaving of their energetic fields.

If true, this passage could plausibly refer to the linking of Nibiru to Earth, remaining in place for a specified period of time before once again departing on its orbit.

When a comet passes by near to the sun, a series of changes have been reported to allegedly take place.

Fire flashes from his eyes and nostrils. Jets of bright light start out from the nucleus, and move through the fainter haze of the coma toward the sun. Then these jets are turned backward around the edge of the coma, and stream from it, behind the comet, until they are fashioned into a tail.

An excellent and detailed analysis of Nordic mythology, as it may relate to Nibiru, is presented at "Ragnarok - The Age Of Fire And Gravel".

Greek Mythology

Greek mythology is rich with stories of the Greek Gods who were thought to dwell on the peaks of Mount Olympus, or somewhere in the sky.

In the beginning there was only chaos. Then out of the void appeared Erebus, the unknowable place where death dwells, and Night. All else was empty, silent, endless, darkness. Then somehow Love was born bringing a start of order. From Love came Light and Day. Once there was Light and Day, Gaia, the earth appeared.

Erebus is defined as “the land of the dead” – a fitting description for an extra-solar planetary object that may not contain an atmosphere suitable for life as we know it to be.


The sentence, “Once there was Light and Day, Gaia, the earth appeared,” seems curiously linked to Velikovsky’s description of how our Earth came to be.

Immanuel Velikovsky describes how the Earth after an extra-solar planetary object careened through our Solar System and struck an ancient planet. The planet was disintegrated and its remains now form the asteroid belt located between Mars and Jupiter. Also, a large piece of this planet was hurled toward the Sun, captured by its gravitational force, and placed into an orbit along with its own satellite. Velikovsky postulates that this planetary piece is now what we occupy as Planet Earth.

A detailed analysis of his work is found in the Immanuel Velikovsky Archive. Also, a group of students at North Polk Senior High School, Alleman, Iowa, devised a computer simulation to at least begin testing Velikovsky’s cosmogony. A detailed analysis of their simulation and its results is located at Formation Of The Asteroid Belt By Catastrophic Destruction Of The "Missing Planet.


Zeus the hurler of thunderbolts

Was the depiction of Zeus really a planet that came near to Earth?

Zeus, according to his Homeric epithets, is the cloud gatherer, the dark-clouded, the thunderer on high, and the hurler of thunderbolts.

Could the mythological god, Zeus, really have been an extra-solar planet? Ancient cultures observed their environment and described what they observed in the language of their age. It was common to define the planets as gods. Wal Thornhill, the author of the Electric Universe presents a theory that the universe is governed at a fundamental level by electromagnetic forces. He states that the planets move together in a plasma sheath.

The plasma sheath provides a balancing electrical force that acts with gravity to keep the planets in alignment and to buffer the planets against colliding with each other. A distinguishing characteristic of plasmas is the generation of what is termed Birkeland currents, named after Kristian Bierkeland. Experiments have shown plasma sheaths are regions of strong electric fields and therefore electric currents. Birkeland current filaments follow the magnetic field lines.

When planets are in close proximity to each other inside a plasma sheath, currents flow between the planets along magnetic field lines to their respective polar regions.


A website on Thornhill’s work shows (with photographs) many instances of what appear to be intense and powerful electrical strikes upon our planet.


Has it been reported in the news?

Something large and red has been discovered orbiting in Pluto's neighborhood. This discovery has reignited the idea that there may be more than nine planets in our solar system.

Large Object Discovered Orbiting Sun

Discovery News

July 3, 2001

The discovery of a large reddish chunk of something orbiting in Pluto's neighborhood has re-ignited the idea that there may be more than nine planets in the solar system.

What the discoverers are calling 2001 KX76 might be one of the largest "Kuiper Belt Objects" or KBO's, found in what is essentially a second asteroid belt beyond the orbit of Neptune. Initial reports give 2001 KX76 a diameter of 900 to 1200 kilometers — roughly the size of Pluto's moon, Charon. Pluto itself, it should be noted, is smaller than our own moon.

Because KBOs are believed to have very elongated orbits around the sun they spend a lot of time on dark, centuries-long excursions into deep space. That makes them very hard to find, said astronomer Robert Millis, director of the Lowell Observatory, which was involved in the discovery.

If 2001 KX76 is any indication of larger KBOs out there, it might also lead to the demotion of Pluto from puniest planet to king of KBOs, said Marsden.

Millis prefers a third alternative: "There may exist a new class of planets."

What does NASA say?

NASA recognized the possibility (in 1982) of an extra-solar planet. One year later, NASA launched the IRAS (Infrared Astronomical Satellite), which located a large object.

The Washington Post summarized an interview with the JPL IRAS lead scientist:

A heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescope...

'All I can tell you is that we don't know what it is', said Gerry Neugebauer, chief IRAS scientist.

Has a sighting been made?

There are certain moments when one surfs across a site, allegedly given from a channeled source, that is so well developed, so well written, the ideas so cogent and coherent, the continuity of topic to idea to hypothesis and leading to conclusions are so well presented, one must take into account the possibility that - the site which is that well developed and presents itself as "channeled" information, could possibly be a website managed by an authoritative source.


The ZetaTalk site is exactly this type of data source.

ZetaTalk states this is a visible comet-like object that will approach from the constellation, Orion, at a 32-degree angle to the ecliptic and assume a retrograde orbit.


The site goes on to state that 2003 will be its next passage through our solar system.

The Zeta site provides the path of this inbound planet, and its degree of variance. For the serious amateur astronomer, the coordinates (convert to degrees) and visibility factors are available at


Has a path been plotted from the coordinates?

Kent Steadman, the founder and author/developer of the Cyberspaceorbit web site has plotted a possible course for Nibiru using a StarFnder II. Mr. Steadman asserts that Nibiru may rise to the left of the rising sun on 5/15/03.


Venus and Mercury rising along the ecliptic just ahead of the sun (Figure 1).

Figure 1

According to Steadman’s research, as Nibiru approaches the inner solar system, it may accelerate quickly below the ecliptic, passing behind and below the sun before it comes back up from beneath the sun at a 33 degree angle.


Steadman continues to report that, after March 3, 2003, Nibiru will drop below the elliptic (Figure 2), passing behind and below the sun.

What is being done about it?

It seems that many factions within our government, and other governments, are all timing certain events with the year 2003!

  • Reported in Reuters, May 11, 1999, Defense Secretary William Cohen and the Pentagon Joint Chiefs of Staff Tuesday urged the Senate Armed Services Committee to vote on a proposal to pave the way for two rounds of base closings in 2001 and 2003.

  • Submitted by Lieutenant General Jeffrey W. Oster (USMC Deputy Chief of Staff Programs and Resources) on February 26, 1997 to the Subcommittees on Military Procurement and Research and Development of the House National Security Committee on Navy Shipbuilding – The cornerstone of the Navy shipbuilding plan for the Future Years Defense Program in fiscal years 1998 through 2003 is full funding of all of the ships in the plan, including all submarines and the tenth and final NIMITZ class aircraft carrier, the CVN 77.

  • The dedication of the International Space Station is planned for 2003.

  • Lawrence-Livermore Laboratories is planning on having developed a laser, made up of 192 beams, and housed in a complex the length of two football fields. The laser will be capable of simulating the blast of a small-scale fusion bomb. This weapon is planned for completion in 2003.

  • Nuclear weapons are planned for a 2/3 reduction by 2003. The ZetaTalk site discusses a preliminary forecast of reductions.

  • In 1995, the U.S. signed an international agreement for search and rescue, to be in place by 2003.

  • The Mayan calendar predicts the end of our world, as we have known it to be in 2012. Sylvia Brown alleges that the Mayan date of 2012 is actually the Gregorian date of 2003. A calculator that converts the Mayan date to a Gregorian date can be found on the Gregorian-Mayan Date web site.

  • According to a Discovery News Brief, a mission to Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons, is planned for 2003. This could make for a very interesting fly-by should Nibiru truly pass through our solar neighborhood.

This list does not even begin to address the international political trends intended to:

  • Centralize a global government with the United Nations as it’s leading authority and governing body

  • Disarm all civilians on a global scale (presumably to forestall mass panic should Nibiru turn out to be the ultimate reality)

  • Train regular military units in the streets of our cities for urban warfare.

What do I think about all this?

All this data says one thing to this writer - our governments are frightened and are reacting to whatever it is that is frightening them.

My own preliminary conclusions (based on available data) are:

  • There may indeed be one more planet in our solar system that we have yet to catalog.

  • It may be arriving well within our own lifetime - possibly in 2003 as some researchers assert.

What will happen when it does arrive?


Read Velikovsky. Yes I do accept that Velikovsky has never been validated yet, if there is a planet that will intersect our own orbital plane, then possible effects from earthquakes, to lightening storms, to tsunamis, and perhaps even to visitations from another race may be imminent.

I am from New England. In 1978, we had a snow storm that left up to 16 feet of snow in some areas (when you count the drifts). It snowed steadily for nearly seven days.

Many of my friends thought me foolish:

"He's stocking food! He's buying water supplies! He's got a great supply of wine and beer too! He even bought army medical kits, batteries, flashlights, emergency lamps, etc."

Did I mention the full tank of heating oil and containers of gasoline for our two vehicles?

Yes I became the focal point of neighborhood entertainment. That is, until the snow began. And still they laughed on Day 2, and Day 3. By Day 4, one of my friends requested if he could stay with us.


The snow ended on Day 7.

  • Where there were no drifts, the snow was six feet deep.

  • Where there were drifts, the snow was over twelve feet deep.

  • They were finding people frozen solid in their cars up to two weeks after the snow ended!

  • We were not allowed to drive in our own city for one week after the snow ended and prohibited from parking in other major cities for up to one month.

My friend? He was no longer laughing.

The bottom line is that we live in a strange and wondrous universe - a creation that many take for granted, assuming it will never change. Yet, the only thing of any permanence in our fragile lives is the reality of constant change.

Yet, the tendency of nation states to withhold potential threat information on what they believe to be a need to know basis never does seem to change. Therefore, the question for each reader is whether or not this XKBO is in fact headed towards a catastrophic flyby rendezvous with the Earth in June 2003.

Rather, the question is, who will you as the reader allow to determine your need to know about this potential threat and when.
