icon Coordinates


Coordinates will be updated when requests for these updates come in. Since early 2001, when the 12th was first visible from observatories, such requests have been frequent. The coordinates are listed with the latest date at the top of the page (except for the Mar 3, 2003 coordinates that were given in 1997). Due to the light being from the 12th being primarily in the red spectrum, and the tendency of this light to bend readily, the exact RA and Dec for your location will probably vary slightly from those given depending on your position on the globe. Movements in the RA and Dec also take into account changing factors in the solar system that bend red light. Look around the spot slightly.

In that there is a Campaign to have amateurs look too early for this inbound brown dwarf, no larger than a one of your distant planets and thus not yet reflecting sunlight, diffuse and without the intense pinpoint of sunlight that stars have at their center, in the astronomical dawn when the skies are hardly dark enough to see even small stars clearly, when it is close to the horizon and not high enough in the night sky to be clearly delimited, we are withholding our coordinates until the time that astronomers Not on a disinformation campaign of discouragement and ridicule have stated. Coordinates will be provided on mid-September, 2002, as those looking prior to that time will be guided into discouragement, quite deliberately, by NASA chronies.

What might appear to be bobbling of the 12th Planet, inbound, as the RA and Dec may move side to side over time, is in fact an illusion caused by the bending of Red Light, the predominant light coming from this smoldering brown dwarf. Thus, these coordinates give the globe at large our educated guess as to what light particles in the red spectrum will be encountering, between the 12th Planet and Earth, and where they will appear to be coming from as they bend back toward Earth.

Having assumed a retrograde orbit, the significant motion of the 12th Planet is nevertheless inbound, toward the Sun. From the Earth, however, this appears to be a motion to the side, in a retrograde orbit. At the mid-year point in 2001, several things happen to the 12th Planet during its inbound trek.

  1. it picks up speed, moving from what was an essential dither between its two foci to an increasing motion toward the Sun.
  2. it comes closer to the Sun's sweeping arms, and thus does a stronger jump over these arms when they pass, increasing its retrograde motion.
  3. it makes what appears to be a tick back in its path, bumping up and then around, as it passes what we will call an influence that likewise hovers near the midpoint of the two foci.
  4. it settles into a period where the primary motion is strongly inbound, rather than retrograde, due to the increased speed it has attained. This speed allows the 12th Planet to increasingly ignore the Sun's sweeping arms.

It was known that at this time, approximately February 1, 2001, the 12th Planet would be visible without question to an observatory. This activity is outside of US control, establishment control, they are braced for it. They cannot stop it, and know this, thus are not trying to do so. But will offer countering explanations for what has been found. This will be a difficult time for amateur astronomers, or astronomers without access to the type of equipment that most observatories have at their disposal. Amateurs cannot yet bring the 12th Planet into focus, so the spot being pointed to is yet dark, for them, or so dark as to not be discernible. Disinformation on just what is being seen by the observatories will start, so once again, amateurs must spend their time sorting out a barrage of conflicting information.

The 12th Planet will appear to linger at the point where it turns to assume a retrograde orbit, spending a two year period in this portion of the path alone, anticipated to be at:
