More Likely in 2012

Will Nibiru Return in 2003?
Interview With Zecharia
recent release of Zecharia Sitchin's latest book
"The Lost Book Of Enki," caused a lot of public
interest, as well as some unexpected and unwarranted
misinformation concerning our destiny and the return
of Nibiru. Consequently, some have predicted that
Nibiru will fly through our solar system next year
and with catastrophic results for our planet.
YOWUSA: According to your findings, at about
11,000 BC, 7,400 BC, and 3,800 BC because of the
appearance of Nibiru or the visitation of the
Anunnaki, mankind experienced significant
technological and/or sociological advances.
For example, the year 3,760 BC coincides with the
beginning of the Jewish Calendar and according to
you the time of the state visit to Earth by Anu (a
leader of the Anunnaki or Nibiru) in Nippur,
Summer's "culture center." Assuming a
relatively stable orbit for Nibiru, that would place
a similar event in 3,440 AD.
According to NOSTRADAMUS scholar John Hogue, the
quatrains of Nostradamus predict that the Earth will
be destroyed by the expanding Sun in the year 3,797
AD. Mayan calendars are interpreted to
indicate an "ending" at 2012 AD, and so on.
How do such predictions jive with the data on the
ancient clay tablets?
SITCHIN: That Mankind's progression from
Paleolithic (Old Stone Age) to Mesolithic (Middle
Stone Age) to Neolithic (New Stone Age) and then the
great Sumerian civilization, had occurred in
intervals of about 3,600 years, is a fact.
That Anu visited Earth, approved the grant of
civilization (=knowledge, science, technology) to
Mankind, marked by the start of the calendar in
Nippur in 3760 BC (which is still the Hebrew/Jewish
calendar), is certain (as far as I am concerned).
But as I have tried to explain in my recent Seminars
(though not yet in a full length book), the visits
to Earth and the nearing (at what is called
perihelion) of Nibiru do NOT coincide. This is
a point of immense significance, which those who
have only read my first book somehow ignore.
Also, the assumption that the 3600 years, as a
perfect mathematical given, is also at all times the
actual orbital period, is untenable: Even the orbit
of Halley's comet, about 75 years, varies from 74 to
76 or so. All attempts to pinpoint a precise
date for future arrivals of the planet and/or of the
Anunnaki are thus difficult questions. I will
answer them once I am satisfied that, based on
historical and astronomical data, I have come up
with the right answer.
Sitchin's answers in this exclusive YOWUSA
interview are highly significant. He states
unequivocally that mankind experiences devastating
natural catastrophes roughly every 3,600 years and
that an external influence could be the cause of
If that is true, and one of them was around 3,760
BC, the beginning of the Jewish calendar, another
would have been close to the beginning of the
However, there may be a second periodicity of
roughly 3600 years, as Sitchin points out. He
states the visiting of Earth and the perihelion of
PX or Nibiru do not coincide by necessity or even
Rather, this perihelion may have its turn coming
up in probably just a decade, which is when the long
Mayan calendar will run out and start anew.
What remains, then, is to research previous
Looking backward from the present, the most
recent event would have taken place around 1600 BC.
In 1628 BC, there was the Minoan eruption at
Santorini, held responsible for the end of the
Minoan kingdom on Crete. This cataclysmic
eruption may have been triggered by a menacing
flyby, perhaps of a planet in a long period orbit
around our sun.
Now getting back to your neighbor who most likely
is rolling his eyes in disbelief despite his nagging
sense of curiosity. So far, you've only given
him the first half of a one-two punch. Now
comes the roundhouse swing from out of left field.
The interview with Sitchin is titled, "Will
Nibiru return in 2003?" To which, Sitchin
replies ‘not likely,' even though many claim that it
will flyby in 2003. YOWUSA has always
maintained that the greatest concern about this 2003
claim is that if this alleged flyby turns out to be
a non-event, the whole issue of Nibiru will have
been done a great disservice.
Why YOWUSA Concurs with Sitchin
For the record, YOWUSA agrees fully with the
position of Zecharia Sitchin, and the existence of
Nibiru. Likewise, will we refuse to yield to
the reasoning, that this celestial body is capable
of altering/bypassing the laws of nature. For
this reason, we are skeptical about the physics
behind a 2003 flyby event; which are quite
complicated at best.
To help you understand our reasoning, we first
need to establish the type of orbit our
XKBO/Nibiru/Planet X does follow and the stellar
masses pulling at it.
To begin with, let's apply a simple two-body
approach to the problem and then we'll examine a
three-body approach as well.
Two-body Nibiru Solution
In this approach the two bodies are Nibiru and
our Sun. This assumption yields us a simple,
elliptical orbit, with the perihelion being at the
point of closest approach to the Sun, wherein the
Sun is one of the focal points of the orbit.
As to the other focal point, it would be empty.
This is because Planet X, the second body, would
come rushing in around the Sun in a few months to a
year from the distance of the radius of Jupiter's
orbit, and then rush right back out.
So what would it look like? Nibiru's orbit
around the Sun in this two-body approach to the
problem would have something of a hairpin structure.
Consequently, there will a violent flyby of Nibiru
through our Solar system, which in turn will disrupt
the natural stasis of most of the bodies in our
Solar system, and with profound consequences.
However, given that mankind has managed to
survive and that Sitchin is of the firm belief that
Nibiru has passed this way before, there is likely
some friction between our simple two-body approach
to the problem and the true path of Planet X/Nibiru.
For this reason, a much more likely scenario would
be the three-body approach.
Three-body Nibiru Solution
In an attempt to explain a three-body approach,
Cyberspaceorbit web site first posted an
illustration, made by one of his sleuths, of such an
orbit. After some comments on the possibility
and impossibility of such a scenario, this man later
presented a much
more credible view on the orbit structure of
such a body's path.

The work is admirable,
however we see one major drawback with regards to
timeframe used. While a flyby can happen
along the path depicted by Kent, physics does not
support a May 2003 date.
In order to make Kent's path work with a May 2003
flyby, Nibiru would have to be at Pluto's distance
by the end of 2002, where it would remain
undetectable to most amateurs, because it will be at
a distance of 39.5 AU or 5.925e12 m to travel in 6
months. That would indicate an average speed
of 5.925e12 meters in 1.57e7 seconds or 3.77e5 m/s.
It is said to pass at 0.5 AU or 7.5e10 m from the
Taking this to the next step, the logical
conclusion regarding Kent's path is that Nibiru
would fly by the Sun once, never to return. Because
we know that Nibiru has flown through our system
before, Kent's 6-month "invisible to fly-by"
scenario cannot happen. This is because a mass
flying faster than this speed at the distance it is
calculated for will not be kept in orbit by the
gravity of the Sun.

This does not mean
however, that Nibiru is not coming!
Nibiru Flyby More Likely in 2012
Given all the inexplicable perturbations
happening to the planets in our solar system, we
feel the chances are strong that a large object such
as a rogue XKBO or Nibiru will transit out system
sometime before the end of the next decade.
We also feel that this whole debate may be
pointless, because Nibiru may have already been
secretly sighted and plotted and that this
information may be intentionally withheld in the
interest of national security.
If Nibiru has in fact been observed and plotted,
the basic physics we've discussed in this article
tell us it will pass through our inner Solar system
within a timeframe, coinciding with the end of the
Mayan calendar in 2012.
