5,000 Megapixel Photo Of The Night Sky
[link to skysurvey.org]

The Photopic Sky Survey is a 5,000 megapixel photograph of the entire night sky stitched together from 37,440 exposures. Large in size and scope, it portrays a world far beyond the one beneath our feet and reveals our familiar Milky Way with unfamiliar clarity. When we look upon this image, we are in fact peering back in time, as much of the light—having traveled such vast distances—predates civilization itself.

Question, how do you actually know what it is you are looking at through a telescope?

Could be anything, without actually going there.

Why did you bother asking if you thought you already knew the answer? I mean, why pretend to be open minded to hear what I have say when it's clear you've already made up your mind?

A brown dwarf on a 3600 year orbit in our solar system would be incredibly obvious. It would necessarily have at least Jupiter's amount of surface area which would reflect sunlight in addition to whatever amount of light the brown dwarf emits by itself, it would move with respect to the stars and that movement would give away its orbit and distance, and it would gravitationally perturb the positions of the outer planets as it approaches the inner solar system.

That's not what I asked, I asked you how do you actually know anything about what you are looking at in the sky.

Everything everyone says about distant objects in space is theory and speculation.

And I answered your question as it pertained specifically to Nibiru. If you want to make broad sweeping ignorant claims that astronomers can't know anything about anything they see without physically being there that is your business, but it does not have any bearing on reality.

No you didn't answer my question, you made an assumption based on primitive human "knowledge".

Let's not forget a short time ago the acceptable idea of the earth being flat and the center of the universe, now that's changed right?

Imagine what will change about the common way of thinking in 100 years.

I bet you would have been the type to think that anyone who thought the earth wasn't flat was crazy, cookoo, conspiracy nut.

Quite the opposite, I would have been the scientist who proves the superstitious fools wrong about their flat earth and geocentric beliefs, with hard facts and evidence, just as I do now. It was science that triumphed over superstition, not the other way around.

Guess what? When Elenin passes us by in October and the world doesn't end it will be I who was proven right again and the superstitious proven wrong. The claims may change, but the facts do not.

Actually it's a thing that does not exist, just like the invisible two ton elephant sitting on your head right now. And it was a sarcastic joke, not a condescending remark; I thought the OP's post was excellent. Clearly I struck a nerve though. I guess I should be sorry that I offended your religious belief in Nibiru, but I'm not, the only thing I'm sorry for is that trolls like you have distracted from the OP's post. With all that said, I'm out, you can have the last word if you want it.
