Three examples of stories coming out of various scientific circles subtly hinting at a second celestial star in our skies. Now we are being told that Earth has more than one moon.
This idea of a twin planet or binary Sun is at the centre of the overarching story of the Fox television series Fringe, where the planet from a parallel universe is rapidly converging on the prime one. As a result of this imminent convergence, cataclysmic events are set in motion at areas where there is a conjunction, resulting in weak points in the fabric of each world. The repercussions of which are the sudden and mysterious death of people and animals, the extinction of various species of animals such as sheep, the destruction of a large section of western California due to a San Andreas Fault-type event, worldwide coastal submergence, destructive voids and vortexes, and various other weather anomalies.
The new paper titled "The population of natural Earth satellites," from Cornell University's Mikael Granvik, Jeremie Vaubaillon and Robert Jedicke states that these "secret moons" enter and exit the Earth's orbit without notice. "At any given time, there should be at least one natural Earth satellite of 1-meter diameter orbiting the Earth," Granvik writes. Scientists have confirmed at least one such temporary moon, discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona in 2006. "Our results are consistent with the single known natural [temporarily-captured orbiter] 2006 RH120, a few-meter diameter object that was captured for about a year starting in June 2006," the report says. - Yahoo.
If all of that sounds familiar to you, then it should be, it might not just be the creation and production from the mind of producer J.J. Abrams, but something we are currently experiencing now, that will escalate further in the coming weeks, months and years.
UPDATE: First Low-Mass Star Detected in Globular Cluster and Earth is Threatened by "Dark Comets"?!
It is seems that something is unraveling here, and moreso at a quickening pace, as 2012 approaches. Take a look at the following two articles and carefully read between the lines:
First Low-Mass Star Detected in Globular Cluster.
|This is the globular cluster M22 with the low-mass star.|
Even the most powerful high-tech telescopes are barely able to record remote low-mass and thus faint stars. Together with researchers from Poland and Chile, an astrophysicist from the University of Zurich has now detected a low-mass star in globular cluster M22 for the first time through microlensing. The result indicates that the overall mass of globular clusters might well be explained without enigmatic dark matter.
Until now, it was merely assumed that low-mass and therefore extremely faint stars must exist. However, in view of the vast distances and weak luminosity of low-mass stars, even the most modern telescopes fail. Together with a Polish-Chilean team of researchers, Swiss astrophysicist Philippe Jetzer from the University of Zurich has now detected the first low-mass star in the globular cluster M22 indirectly. As their recent article published in Astrophysical Journal Letters reveals, it involves a dwarf star that has less than a fifth of the mass of our sun and is 3.2 kiloparsecs from it (one kiloparsec corresponding to 3,210 light years). The evidence, which enables the mass to be determined highly accurately, is based upon so-called gravitational microlensing and requires the highest technical standards available. The measurements were carried out on the ESO VLT 8-meter telescope with adaptive optics at the Paranal Observatory in Chile.

In August 2000 Polish astronomers discovered that the brightness of a star located at about two arcminutes from the center of the globular cluster M22 increased for twenty days. They suspected that the phenomenon was due to so-called gravitational microlensing, which is based on the fact that light spreads along a curved path near large masses as opposed to in a straight line. The brightness of the star increases briefly through the gravitation of an object crossing in front of it, which acts as a lens. The star – the source, in other words – appears brighter for a short time before fading again after passing by the lens. In order to confirm this supposition, the astronomers turned to gravitational microlensing specialist Philippe Jetzer from the University of Zurich. The control measurement carried out on July 17, 2011 at the Paranal Observatory confirmed the hypothesis. "The detailed analysis revealed that the source was outside M22," explains Jetzer. "A low-mass star acted as a lens within the globular cluster itself."Earth Threatened by “Dark” Comets?
The first evidence of a low-mass star in a globular cluster is extremely important for astrophysics as it sheds new light on the structure of globular clusters. Until now, the overall mass of globular clusters could not be explained other than with dark matter, the existence of which, however, is also unproven. "The overall mass or at least a significant proportion of globular clusters can now be explained through the presence of previously undetected low-mass, faint stars," says Jetzer. - PHYSORG.
The vast majority of the detected still space objects are rocky asteroids. Comets and asteroids that pose a threat to the Earth, are under scrutiny, thanks to the International Monitoring Program Spaceguard. However, astronomers from the UK claim that many comets could remain undetected. Under certain circumstances it may be that these dark, dormant comets may become invisible and deadly threat to Earth.
Scientists have suggested that periodic solar system crossing the galactic plane pushes the comet in our direction. And it seems that these periodic comet showers are correlated with the dates of ancient craters found on Earth. This implies that most of the space objects crashing into the past, our Planet, were comets, not asteroids. British astronomers have warned that some of these comets may still be worn in the solar system. At the current pace the appearance of bright comets in the solar system, they should be around 3000. To date, only 25 are known. Perhaps we just do not see them simply because they are too dark.
Such dark comets – are nothing new. Comet dark when reflecting light water ice evaporates, leaving behind an organic crust that reflects very little light. For example, in 1983, Comet IRAS-Araki-Alkoka (IRAS-Araki-Alcock) flew past Earth at a distance of five million kilometers, which is the closest distance you approached any known comet for 200 years. It was noticed only two weeks before approaching the Earth at very small distance. Only 1 percent of its surface was active, the rest of it was covered with very dark spots that do not reflect light. However, some scientists are skeptical about the discovery by British scientists. They believe that the dark comet should have a good absorb sunlight and, therefore, can be found on their radiated heat. - Science Ray.
