This is chapter 002
Ancient Egyptian writings, although not inspired of God, give us their account and a warning of the red dragon/star/comet/planet’s return, named the Destroyer.
It should be noted that the Egyptians were not anxious to point out anything but the natural causes for their destruction. Otherwise they would have given credit to the God of the Hebrews who controls all nature. We can read about their historic encounter with the Destroyer in the
scroll of Adepha, Chapter 5, Para 1
“The Doomshape, called the Destroyer, in Egypt, was seen in all the lands thereabouts. In color it was bright and fiery, in appearance changing and unstable. It twisted about itself like a coil, like water bubbling into a pool from an underground supply, and all men agree it was a most fearsome sight. It was not a great comet or a loosened star, being more like a fiery body of flame.”
“This was the aspect of the Doomshape called the ‘Destroyer,’ when it appeared in days long gone by, in olden times. It is thus described in the old records, few of which remain. It is said that when it appears in the Heavens above, Earth splits open from the heat, like a nut roasted before the fire. Then flames shoot up through the surface and leap about like fiery fiends upon black blood. The moisture inside the land is all dried up, the pastures and cultivated places are consumed in flames and they and all trees become white ashes.”
There is further mention of the Destroyer to be coming back in future times.
From the Great Scroll, Para,1 “Men forget the days of the Destroyer. Only the wise know where it went and that it will return in its appointed hour”
“When ages pass, certain laws operate upon the stars in the Heavens. Their ways change, there is movement and restlessness, they are no longer constant and a great light appears redly in the skies.”
“When blood drops upon the earth, the Destroyer will appear and mountains will open up and belch forth fire and ashes. Trees will be destroyed and all living things engulfed. Waters will be swallowed up by the land and seas will boil”
The timing for this event will be when “women will be as men and men as women” “men will fly in the air as birds and swim in the sea as fishes” “then shall the high strive with the low” etc, etc. There follows a depiction of the effects of the Destroyer this time around which is poetic and terrifying, i.e. “when children will turn gray headed”
Book of Creation, Chapter Three
“At the time of the great destruction of Earth God caused a [celestial] dragon from outer heaven to come and encompass her about. The dragon was frightful to behold, it lashed its tail and breathed out fire and hot coals and a great catastrophe was inflicted upon mankind. The body of the dragon was wreathed in a cold bright light and beneath on the belly was a ruddy hued glow while behind it trailed a flowing tail of smoke.”
“It spewed out cinders and hot stones and its breath was fowl and stenchful poisoning the nostrils of men. Its passage caused great thundering and lightning to rend the thick darkened sky, all heaven and Earth being made hot. The seas were loosened from their cradles and rose up pouring across the land. There was an awful shrilling trumpeting which outpoured even the howling of the unleashed winds. Men stricken with terror went mad at the awful sight in the heavens.”
“They were loosed from their senses and dashed about crazed not knowing what they did. The breath was sucked from their bodies and they were burned with a strange ash. Then it passed leaving Earth enwrapped with a dark and glowering mantle which was ruddily lit up inside. The bowels of the Earth were torn open and great writhing upheavals and a howling whirlwind rent the mountains apart. The wrath of the sky monster was loosed in the heavens. It lashed about in flaming fury roaring like a thousand thunders. It poured down fiery destruction amid a welter of THICK BLACK BLOOD [Red ash].”
“So awesome was the fearfully aspected thing that the memory mercifully departed from Man. His thoughts were smothered under a cloud of forgetfulness….. in this manner the first Earth was destroyed by calamity descending from the skies. Men and their dwelling places were gone. Only sky boulders and the red earth remained where once they were. But amidst all the desolation a few survived for Man is not easily destroyed but crept out of their caves and came down the mountain sides.”
“Their eyes were wild and their limbs trembled. Their bodies shook and their calls lacked control. Their faces were twisted and their skin hung loose on their bones. They were as maddened as wild beasts driven into an enclosure before flames. They knew no law being deprived of all the wisdom they once had and those who had guided them were gone.”
“When blood [the red ash] drops upon the Earth the DESTROYER will appear and mountains will open up and belch forth fire and ashes. Trees will be destroyed and all living things engulfed. Waters will be swallowed up by the land and the seas will boil. The heavens will burn brightly and redly. There will be a copper hue over the face of the land followed by a day of darkness.”
“A new moon will appear and break up and fall. The people will scatter in madness. They will hear the trumpet and the battle cry of the DESTROYER and will seek refuge in the dens [underground bunkers] of the Earth. Terror will eat away their hearts and their courage will flow from them like water from a broken pitcher.”
“They will be eaten up in the flames of wrath and consumed by the breath of the DESTROYER. In those days men will have the great book before them, wisdom will be revealed. The few will be gathered for the stand. It is the hour of trial. The dauntless ones will survive. The stout-hearted will not go down in destruction”
Note: In three different texts of Jeremiah below the destroyer is mentioned. From Revelation 9:11 we know that this is the name of the King over the demons of the abyss and their ability to bring the curse upon the earth is not restricted to the effects of the brown dwarf star that has born its name but can also represent armies of enemies.
”They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek [tongue] he hath the name Apollyon “
(Apollyon, Greek: Destroyer).
The Jeremiah texts below are also prophetic of these days 3500 years after the destroyer ravaged Egypt killing so many.
”For Jehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Jehovah will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.”
“Thus saith the Lord, Behold, a people cometh from the north country; and a great nation shall be stirred up from the uttermost parts of the earth. They lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea, and they ride upon horses, every one set in array, as a man to the battle, against thee, O daughter of Zion. We have heard the report thereof; our hands wax feeble: anguish hath taken hold of us, and pangs as of a woman in travail. Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy, and terror, are on every side. O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation; for the destroyer shall suddenly come upon us. I have made thee a trier and a fortress among my people; that thou mayest know and try their way. They are all grievous revolters, going about with slanders; they are brass and iron: they all of them deal corruptly. The bellows blow fiercely; the lead is consumed of the fire: in vain do they go on refining; for the wicked are not plucked away. Refuse silver shall men them, because the Lord hath rejected them.”
We can easily imagine that the scenario of a pole flip or pole shift as we have described it to you in chapter001 ‘Eight Years of Global Changes’ of this blog will result in devastation of immense magnitudes which probably could include the death of a major portion of man and beast and livestock, anywhere between one half and possibly two thirds of all living souls.
In addition we could see all kinds of extreme human behavior that would go along with the turmoil. Famine and pestilence will lead to civil unrest. The absence of government and executive powers in sufficient proportions will provide a state of chaos and then bring about lawlessness with looting, raping, killing and the like. At that point in time you do not want to be in any large city or even close to a dense populated area.
Now that you have learned, what is waiting on us, you will ask yourself: “Am I ready for this?” We know there will be many survivors and we pray that you are all among them together with your families and loved ones. This is why we are bringing ‘The Destroyer’ to your attention. It will not hurt you to be prepared for a worst case scenario and then in reality encounter a less threatening environment at that day.
It will not hurt you to get right with the Lord and straighten out your life and relationships. And why not get rid off our sinful ways of unrighteousness and take a turn onto the highway of holiness. There is safety in holiness and in obedience to the Lord. In fact he is bringing us into the wilderness to make us a holy nation again and a pure bride to his prince.
“For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.”
Unpreparedness on the other hand is easy to get. It would in most cases cost us a fraction because the majority of us would have to change nothing. But then when the worst case scenario would come to be manifested we could be paying this laziness with a high price. We could suffer and loose loved ones or die ourselves.
Think about it. The Lord is starting a shaking here. For those of us who have eyes to see and ears to hear he is putting more then enough signs out in the visible and invisible world to understand what the hour of the time is. For those, who listen to him, there will be no doubt on what is coming upon us right now. He has given us constant warning and dream after dream and vision after vision. You can find a collection of dreams and visions following this link:
Dreams and Visions
We will go deeper into dreams and visions in a later chapter. Please feel free to spread this information so people are warned. You do not want to wait for the mainstream media to inform you or your friends. It will most likely not be televised.
Instead you will probably see the wildest claims and some weird opinions and people on TV dealing with the subject in order for the media apparatus to ridicule anybody who is talking about it. We are already seeing well funded ‘smear operations’ on forums and through email flooding on those who dare to bring this topic into public view.
The masters of the corporate run media complex do not want you to investigate the matter. Instead they will portray it as a conspiracy or a lunacy. TV-land will show you incredible madness evolving all around it, as to destroy credibility of anybody that is trying to address this subject in a serious and truthful manner. Please do your own research and let us help you with this so you can find out what is true and how you can provide.
Over all use this remaining short time frame that is left and get prepared, you and your family, to move quickly according to the directions the Lord will freely give to you. We know that many will hesitate and it will be too late for them to escape all these things. We urge you to spend some time today with the Lord so he can show you how he wants you to go about it. Please do not follow any directions from us other then to acquire from the Lord and to hear from him personally. The advice that we give to you at this point is simply to get ready and enable yourself and your loved ones to move quickly in case the Lord wants you to move to higher grounds.
“If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the Lord, if thou wilt return unto me, and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight; then shalt thou not be removed; and thou shalt swear, As the Lord liveth, in truth, in justice, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory. For thus saith the Lord to the men of Judah and to Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns. Circumcise yourselves to the Lord, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem; lest my wrath go forth like fire, and burn so that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings. Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry aloud and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the fortified cities. Set up a standard toward Zion: flee for safety, stay not; for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction. A lion is gone up from his thicket, and a destroyer of nations; he is on his way, he is gone forth from his place, to make thy land desolate, that thy cities be laid waste, without inhabitant. For this gird you with sackcloth, lament and wail; for the fierce anger of the Lord is not turned back from us. And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the Lord, that the heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes; and the priests shall be astonished, and the prophets shall wonder. Then said I, Ah, Lord the Lord! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the life.”
The star has been given many names during its course through the history of mankind
The many Names of ‘The Destroyer’
- “The Destroyer” in the Old Testament of the Bible
- “The Destroyer” in ancient writings of the Egyptians
- “Wormwood” in the book of revelation
- “Nibiru” in the writings of the Sumerians and Babylonians
- “Marduk” in the Babylonian religion
- “Phateon” in the Greek literature
- “Nemesis” in the Greek mythology
- “Apollyon” in Babylonian mythology
- “Apollo” in Greek mythology
- “G1.9” as a working title by NASA
- “Eris”, the name given by NASA to the newly discovered 10th planet which could also be an attempt to move your attention away from the real thing
- “Planet X” by various astronomers and authors
- “Nemesis” as a nickname by NASA scientist
- “The Planet of the Crossing” in ancient writings
- “Brown Dwarf” is the term that classifies the object in its astrophysical nature
There is much in a name,
and we will bring more light into the history and significance of the name giving in a future chapter of this blog. Unfortunately people get confused because many are using the same name while talking of different objects. I would want to stick with the biblical term and will call it “The Destroyer” and we believe it to be a star, not a planet..
The evidence as to this day (April 2010) points to the object being a ‘brown dwarf’, which is simply put a star which never ignited due to a lack off sufficient mass. It is therefore not emitting a lot of light in the visible realm. But is has a strong heat signature or radiation that can be picked up in the infra-red spectrum by telescopes and observatories. A more scientific explanation would sound somewhat like this:
A ‘Brown Dwarf’ is…
a sub-stellar object which is too low in mass to sustain stable hydrogen fusion. The mass is below that necessary to maintain hydrogen-burning nuclear fusion reactions in its core, as do stars on the main sequence, but which has a fully convective surface and interior, with no chemical differentiation by depth. Brown dwarfs occupy the mass range between that of large gas giant planets and the lowest mass stars; this upper limit is between 75 and 80 Jupiter masses (MJ). Currently there is some debate as to what criterion to use to define the separation between a brown dwarf from a giant planet at very low brown dwarf masses (~13 MJ ), and whether brown dwarfs are required to have experienced fusion at some point in their history. In any event, brown dwarfs heavier than 13 MJ do fuse deuterium and those above ~65 MJ also fuse lithium. The only planets known to orbit brown dwarfs are 2M1207b and MOA-2007-BLG-192Lb
Animation of ‘The Destroyer’s Orbital Path through our Solar System
To better illustrate ‘The Destroyers’ spatial relationship with our world we show you an animation which demonstrates the orbital path ‘The Destroyer’ takes through our solar system. The simulation is courtesy of Gilbert Eriksen, author of The Millennium Prophecy and is originally located at www.millenniumprophecy.com/wormwood.html
Note that the plane of our solar system is placed horizontally in this simulation with the sun being the center. Watch how there is another object coming into the picture entering from the lower right corner or from underneath our elliptic plane. It will travel all around the sun and then disappear back southwards. We believe that it has done so also roughly 3500 years ago.
Flyby Animation of ‘The Destroyer’ through our Solar System
We were sent this second simulation with slightly different details that we also want to post here. Note that we did not have the chance to interview the producer about the time stamp in the upper right corner. Therefor we can not confirm or disagree on the given dates in the clip. Please look at this as a visual model and not necessarily as a scientific presentation of the actual event.
“For, because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou also shalt be taken: and Chemosh shall go forth into captivity, his priests and his princes together. And the destroyer shall come upon every city, and no city shall escape; the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed; as the Lord hath spoken. Give wings unto Moab, that she may fly and get her away: and her cities shall become a desolation, without any to dwell therein. Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord negligently; and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.”
Note: We are aware that it is a sport now days to deceive and later claim credit for it but we search for truth and hold lightly even to the videos which seem more credible to us. The authorities are also using disinformation to discredit any search for the truth in this area so pray the Lord will show you.
We also came across this youtube channel and found that
‘The Destroyer’ might just have been caught on film.
maintained by James Cattera, an amateur astronomer and senior engineer living in the US, who happened to catch real footage of a very interesting object with his infrared telescope. This is his first video:
Could this really be Planet X ? 2010-03-18 Update
The following description is taken from jcattera’s channel on
“jcattera – March 18 2010 – Coordinates confirmed w/Meade LX200-ACF Telescope on three separate nights in conjunction with my IR camera to locate this object. I also confirmed with four of my astronomy friends. We all know where Mars is located. The coordinates for this object are no where near Mars.
(…) *the provided link needed to be censored by the authors of this blog. We do not want to send anybody to be falling for the many deceptions that Marshall Masters already fell for. More about ‘The Deceivers’ will further be revealed in a separate chapter. If you really need to go there be advised and take heed that no one lead you astray!)
Planet X, also referred to as Nibiru, The Destroyer, or just Brown Dwarf.
This planet or failed star supposedly comes around Earth every 3500 years and creates destruction on Earth and is due to come around in 2012.
So, I’ve very been interested in capturing an Infrared video of this very large orange object which is visible right now just to the upper left of the star constellation, “Orion the Hunter”. This bright orange planet or star is not on any star map, and Mars is over by the “Cancer” star constellation, so it isn’t Mars.
Just to point out, Brown dwarfs are too cool to give off much visible light but they do emit substantial amounts of infrared radiation, but they are detectable by ground-based and space borne infrared telescopes.
So, that being the case, I wanted to see how bright the infrared video would be on my Yukon IR camera. After capturing this video, I came to the conclusion that this planet or star is actually giving off a lot of infrared radiation. As you can in the video, I scanned other parts of the sky to show how bright this object really is compared to the other stars.
With that, I’m going to continue monitoring and recording video of this object on every clear night to see if this is getting bigger by the day or week. If it is getting bigger, that would clue us in that this could be Nibiru and is coming closer to us.
Also, an important thing to remember, one of the air shafts in the king’s chamber in the great pyramid of Eygpt points to the first star on the left of Orion’s belt. That is very close to the location of this orange bright object. My question is, were they trying to tell us that Nibiru will be aligned with this 1st star on Orion’s belt in 2012?
Anyways, I’ll continue giving updates when I can …”
This is his second video and as of today (2010-04-09) there is two more to be found on his channel.
Possible Brown Dwarf (Planet X) very close to Orion’s Belt
We also in this case recommend you to watch the original video at its source on youtube. There you will be able to read the embedded annotations which add a lot more information.
The description reads:
The confirmed coordinates for this star is: 6h42m8.44s, 41 40′ 18.94″
Coordinates confirmed w/Meade LX200-ACF Telescope on three separate nights in conjunction with my IR camera to locate this object. I also confirmed with four of my astronomy friends. We all know where Mars is located. The coordinates for this object are no where near Mars.
In his latest video release (April 2010, when this article was published) you can see that the object has moved.
Planet X? It’s Moving!! Update 040910 @ 1:15 am EST
The same object has now slightly different coordinates compared to the before shown video. This is because is is moving. Also the small object has changed its position, relatively to the big one, making it a planet. James gives us the new coordinates.
Again you will see more annotations on the video when you watch it on youtube.
Maybe somebody can roughly calculate the speed from those two points in time.If you can help just post your result as a comment at the and to this article.
On March 18 2010 it had these coordinates: 6h42m8.44s, 41 40′ 18.94″
On April 9 2020 it had these coordinates: 6h41m55.77s, 41 35′ 19.45”
Oh, and please don’t get distracted by the flying crafts.
Please remember to go back to his channel so you can catch up on the latest observation footage. Consider to leave James an encouraging comment on his channel to make up for all the smear and hate mail this man is receiving lately.
Nemesis, ‘The Destroyer’ is now being taught to our children on TV
The Science Channel produced a clip addressed to school children. Please follow the below posted link as we were unable to retrieve or embed the source material.
Spaced Out – Nemesis – Does the Sun Have a Twin?
Recently we saw a similar article in the scientific community published by the
‘Astrobiology Magazine’ titled
“Getting WISE about Nemesis”
that made us believe that NASA is preparing to admit that we are in fact part of a binary star system. Reading between the lines we got the impression that the officials are about to disclose the existence of ‘The Destroyer’, which they call ‘Nemesis’.
Knowing, that they will not be able to conceal it from public view for much longer, because more people are seeing it, we expect them to release some information, but we also project that they still will be lying about its path and its dangers and the time line.
Why are they trying to hide the existence of the Destroyer? In chapter003 of this blog we will talk more about it.
We strongly suggest you be most careful please with past and future publications of any official space agency and any official publication in general. We are aware that they most likely want to carry you away or at least lead you in a different direction.
The article reads as follows:
“A dark object may be lurking near our solar system, occasionally kicking comets in our direction.
Nicknamed “Nemesis” or “The Death Star,” this undetected object could be a red or brown dwarf star, or an even darker presence several times the mass of Jupiter.
Why do scientists think something could be hidden beyond the edge of our solar system? Originally, Nemesis was suggested as a way to explain a cycle of mass extinctions on Earth.
The paleontologists David Raup and Jack Sepkoski claim that, over the last 250 million years, life on Earth has faced extinction in a 26-million-year cycle. Astronomers proposed comet impacts as a possible cause for these catastrophes.
Our solar system is surrounded by a vast collection of icy bodies called the Oort Cloud. If our Sun were part of a binary system in which two gravitationally-bound stars orbit a common center of mass, this interaction could disturb the Oort Cloud on a periodic basis, sending comets whizzing towards us.
An asteroid impact is famously responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, (note inserted: we do not believe in the millions of years tales – authors of this blog) but large comet impacts may be equally deadly. A comet may have been the cause of the Tunguska event in Russia in 1908. That explosion had about a thousand times the power of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, and it flattened an estimated 80 million trees over an 830 square mile area.
While there’s little doubt about the destructive power of cosmic impacts, there is no evidence that comets have periodically caused mass extinctions on our planet. The theory of periodic extinctions itself is still debated, with many insisting that more proof is needed. Even if the scientific consensus is that extinction events don’t occur in a predictable cycle, there are now other reasons to suspect a dark companion to the Sun.
A recently-discovered dwarf planet, named Sedna, has an extra-long and usual elliptical orbit around the Sun. Sedna is one of the most distant objects yet observed, with an orbit ranging between 76 and 975 AU (where 1 AU is the distance between the Earth and the Sun). Sedna’s orbit is estimated to last between 10.5 to 12 thousand years. Sedna’s discoverer, Mike Brown of Caltech, noted in a Discover magazine article that Sedna’s location doesn’t make sense.
“Sedna shouldn’t be there,” said Brown. “There’s no way to put Sedna where it is. It never comes close enough to be affected by the Sun, but it never goes far enough away from the Sun to be affected by other stars.”
Perhaps a massive unseen object is responsible for Sedna’s mystifying orbit, its gravitational influence keeping Sedna fixed in that far-distant portion of space.
“My surveys have always looked for objects closer and thus moving faster,” Brown told Astrobiology Magazine. “I would have easily overlooked something so distant and slow moving as Nemesis.”
John Matese, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, suspects Nemesis exists for another reason. The comets in the inner solar system seem to mostly come from the same region of the Oort Cloud, and Matese thinks the gravitational influence of a solar companion is disrupting that part of the cloud, scattering comets in its wake. His calculations suggest Nemesis is between 3 to 5 times the mass of Jupiter, rather than the 13 Jupiter masses or greater that some scientists think is a necessary quality of a brown dwarf. Even at this smaller mass, however, many astronomers would still classify it as a low mass star rather than a planet, since the circumstances of birth for stars and planets differ.
The Oort Cloud is thought to extend about 1 light year from the Sun. Matese estimates Nemesis is 25,000 AU away (or about one-third of a light year). The next-closest known star to the Sun is Proxima Centauri, located 4.2 light years away.
Richard Muller of the University of California Berkeley first suggested the Nemesis theory, and even wrote a popular science book on the topic. He thinks Nemesis is a red dwarf star 1.5 light years away. Many scientists counter that such a wide orbit is inherently unstable and could not have lasted long – certainly not long enough to have caused the extinctions seen in Earth’s fossil record. But Muller says this instability has resulted in an orbit that has changed greatly over billions of years, and in the next billion years Nemesis will be thrown free of the solar system.
Binary star systems are common in the galaxy. It is estimated that one-third of the stars in the Milky Way are either binary or part of a multiple-star system.
Red dwarfs are also common – in fact, astronomers say they are the most common type of star in the galaxy. Brown dwarfs are also thought to be common, but there are only a few hundred known at this time because they are so difficult to see. Red and brown dwarfs are smaller and cooler than our Sun, and do not shine brightly. If red dwarfs can be compared to the red embers of a dying fire, then brown dwarfs would be the smoldering ash. Because they are so dim, it is plausible that the Sun could have a secret companion even though we’ve searched the sky for many years with a variety of instruments.
NASA’s newest telescope, the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), may be able to answer the question about Nemesis once and for all.
WISE looks at our universe in the infrared part of the spectrum. Like the Spitzer space telescope, WISE is hunting for heat. The difference is that WISE has a much wider field of view, and so is able to scan a greater portion of the sky for distant objects.
WISE began scanning the sky on January 14, and NASA recently released the mission’s first images. The mission will map the entire sky until October, when the spacecraft’s coolant runs out.
Part of the WISE mission is to search for brown dwarfs, and NASA expects it could find one thousand of the dim stellar objects within 25 light years of our solar system.
Davy Kirkpatrick at NASA’s Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech found nothing when he searched for Nemesis using data from the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). Now Kirkpatrick is part of the WISE science team, ready to search again for any signs of a companion to our Sun.
Kirkpatrick doesn’t think Nemesis will be the red dwarf star with an enormous orbit described by Muller. In his view, Matese’s description of Nemesis as a low mass object closer to home is more plausible.
“I think the possibility that the Sun could harbor a companion of another sort is not a crazy idea,” said Kirkpatrick. “There might be a distant object in a more stable, more circular orbit that has gone unnoticed so far.”
Ned Wright, professor of astronomy and physics at UCLA and the principal investigator for the WISE mission, said that WISE will easily see an object with a mass a few times that of Jupiter and located 25,000 AU away, as suggested by Matese.
“This is because Jupiter is self-luminous like a brown dwarf,” said Wright. “But for planets less massive than Jupiter in the far outer solar system, WISE will be less sensitive.”
Neither Kirkpatrick nor Wright think Nemesis is disrupting the Oort cloud and sending comets towards Earth, however. Because they envision a more benign orbit, they prefer the name “Tyche” (the good sister).
Regardless of what they expect to find, the WISE search won’t focus on one particular region of the sky.
“The great thing about WISE, as was also true of 2MASS, is that it’s an all-sky survey,” said Kirkpatrick. “There will be some regions such as the Galactic Plane where the observations are less sensitive or fields more crowded, but we’ll search those areas too. So we’re not preferentially targeting certain directions.”
We may not have an answer to the Nemesis question until mid-2013. WISE needs to scan the sky twice in order to generate the time-lapsed images astronomers use to detect objects in the outer solar system. The change in location of an object between the time of the first scan and the second tells astronomers about the object’s location and orbit. Then comes the long task of analyzing the data.
“I don’t suspect we’ll have completed the search for candidate objects until mid-2012, and then we may need up to a year of time to complete telescopic follow-up of those objects,” said Kirkpatrick.
Even if Nemesis is not found, the WISE telescope will help shed light on the darkest corners of the solar system. The telescope can be used to search for dwarf planets like Pluto that orbit the Sun off the solar system’s ecliptic plane. The objects that make up the Oort Cloud are too small and far away for WISE to see, but it will be able to track potentially dangerous comets and asteroids closer to home.”
”Let mine outcasts dwell with thee; as for Moab, be thou a covert to him from the face of the destroyer. For the extortioner is brought to nought, destruction ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land. And a throne shall be established in lovingkindness; and one shall sit thereon in truth, in the tent of David, judging, and seeking justice, and swift to do righteousness.”
