Andy Lloyd's Dark Star Blog


The Dark Star Blog explores the existence of an additional, massive planet in our solar system.  It is usually referred to as Planet X.  More recently, astronomers and astrophysicists have begun to name this putative object 'Planet Nine'.   Other ideas about Planet X are less scientific.  They focus upon references made in various mythical writings to rogue gods and fabled worlds.  This blog predominantly explores the science behind Planet X, but is also open to other lines of enquiry, particularly regarding the ancient celestial phenomenon known as Nibiru.

The Dark Star Theory considers whether a binary failed star may be orbiting our Sun at a great distance.  This binary object is a sub-brown dwarf, probably several Jupiter-masses in size.  It occupies the mysterious realm between planet and brown dwarf star. The Dark Star may be the cause of many effects on our solar system.  It can explain a wealth of anomalies in the outer solar system - particularly in the distant Kuiper Belt.  The scientific evidence is solid enough, which has been explored in detail in the authorís popular book 'The Dark Star' (2005).  Even now, it may play an unseen, but vital role, in our solar system's dynamics.


It is also possible that the Dark Star plays an important part in our own history.  Because this object emits heat, and perhaps a small amount of dim light, it is capable of warming and nurturing its own planetary system.  It follows that the Dark Star's planetary system would be capable of supporting complex life right on our cosmic doorstep.  Potentially, this sub-brown dwarf is part of a much bigger picture - one involving a whole new cosmic paradigm.
