and updated accordingly.

Remember that OBSERVATORY grade scopes are required until 
mid-2002, as the distance away precludes reflecting sunlight until 
that time (it reflects only 1/81 the sunlight that Pluto does at this
time), and precludes a significant increase in size until that time 
(it is only about 3 times the size of Pluto in your scopes at this 
time). Also a reminder that the predominant color of the inbound
planet is red, specifically in the infra-red range (the means by which
it was located in 1983 by the IRAS team), and the lack of infra-red
capability in all but specialized equipment eliminates the dominant
color that Planet X exudes (thus look for a Magnitude 11 object, not
Magnitude 2 which it is when equipment has infra-red capabilities).
Screen FOR red, go to your local observatory, and insist that the
coordinates specified by the Zetas be used, and none others, and as the
coordiantes are given to be used at any location, look AROUND the 
spot for something not in the star charts.

Prior sightings at the Zetas coordinates, in early 2001 when Orion was 
not in the Sun, are detailed at the Troubled Times site, Rogue Planet 
TEAM pages (


Pluto is reflecting sunlight, and Planet X at this time is NOT, but does

have a dull redish glow as it is a smoldering brown dwarf.  This is
what we're looking for, appearance and size wise, etc.
- Search for an object down to Magnitude 11
- Size in scope is 2-3 times that of Pluto
- Is not yet reflecting sunlight (81 times less than Pluto)
- Has a diffuse glow as is a slow-smolder brown dwarf
- Has a redish color, so filter for red for best results
- Brightness increase detectable not until late 2001 (by computer)
- Coordinates per Zetas as ephemeris will not describe path
- Distance is approximately 9 Sun-Pluto distances away
- Retrograde motion now and dropping below ecliptic
- Rapid passage in 2003

    Although [Planet X] at present is a magnitude 2.0,
    [when infra-red is taken into consideration]
    astronomers should include objects up to a magnitude 10
    in their image capture.

    The operator described the object as diffuse and of approximate
    magnitude 11.

    Though a large planet, 4 times as large as Earth ... it is at this
    time at a much greater distance ...

    As [Planet X] is too far away for reflected sunlight up until 6
    months before passage.
        ZetaTalk™ in Brightness

    It does not shine with the intensity of most stars, but has a dull,
    diffuse, glow. It appears to be the last gasp of a dying star, a
    faint, blurry, reddish glow. Your eye would pass over it if
    attuned to the pin points that are the stars. A star is intense
    in the center and rapidly diminishes in intensity toward the
    edges of the spot you call a star. The light from a star comes
    from a single point and fans out, the periphery a bit less than
    the center, increasingly, but the center very intense. The 12th
    Planet, being nearer, is giving you light rays from its entire
    surface, so the light has an even quality to it.
        ZetaTalk™ in Comet Visible

    [Planet X] has both heat and light, generated from
    within its core. ... The light is diffused in the atmosphere, and
    returns to the land surface, but emerges from the core to
    interact with the atmosphere only via the surface of the deep oceans,
    which cover the majority of the planet's surface. You may equate
    this to volcanic activity, where the Earth has numerous
    places both above ground and under the oceans that ooze
    molten lava. Just so [Planet X] has places where the molten
    and churning substance in its core escapes to the surface. ...
    Light only escapes the core where what is essentially volcanic
    activity under the water occurs. Of course, this would occur if
    there was volcanic activity on the land surface of the planet,
    but there is little land surface, and this long ago hardened.

    The composition is not the composition of reflecting sunlight,
    but is almost exclusively in the spectrum you would call red
    light. Thus you will do best if you filter for red light [including
    infra-red], and by this we mean filtering out all but red light.
        ZetaTalk™ in Comet Visible

    The [computer assisted] eye will begin to register increased
    brightness approximately 1 year 7 months before the
    cataclysms, or late in the year 2001.

    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 ...
    where the primary motion is strongly inbound, rather
    than retrograde, due to the increased speed it has
    attained. This speed allows [Planet X] to increasingly
    ignore the Sun's sweeping arms.

           RA 4.45724 Dec 11.98742 Nov 15, 2001

               ZetaTalk™ (dated September 18, 2001)

    You can assume, in selecting a Right Ascension (RA) and
    Declination (Dec) point, that no more than .2 RA degrees nor
    .45 declination degrees occurs at any time as a variance from
    this path. This variance includes a slower rate along the path
    than would be assumed and a path other than a smoothed or
    curved path between points.
         ZetaTalk™ in Variance

    [Planet X] is circling on a long elliptical orbit around
    the sun and its dead companion which lies at a distance some
    18.724 times the length from the sun to Pluto. It is not a long
    distance to be traveled in 3,657 years, especially considering
    that it transverses the solar system in 3 short months! Clearly,
    the uptick in speed is considerable, and the rate of speed as it
    floats from one binary sun to the other is sedate in comparison.
    Thus, when the passage is due in 2003, there is an exponential
    increase in speed during the last years, and this speeding up
    has already started. To compute the distance from the solar
    system on any given date, create an exponential equation which
    takes into consideration the total distance we have given for the
    sun's dead companion, the years [Planet X] takes to make
    a complete ellipse (3,657), and the approximate May 15, 2003
    date of the next passage. The distance will differ greatly, thus,
    depending upon the date.
        ZetaTalk™ in Distance

    Thus, during 1995 through 1998, [Planet X] will drift
    left and up toward the elliptic, aligning itself in the same
    manner as the planets to the Sun's sweeping arm, but due to
    its mobility out in space, its distance from the Sun, it develops
    a retrograde orbit and begins to move to the right, in the
    manner the ancients recorded.
         ZetaTalk™ in Retrograde Orbit

    While it is out in space [Planet X] moves slowly, but
    increases speed rapidly as it comes close to one of its two foci.
    When [Planet X] is passing your Sun it is moving
    rapidly, the time spent within your outer planet Saturn's
    orbit a mere 3 months. It zips by. ... [Planet X] pulls
    down and away from your Sun only at the last minute.
    This is reflected in time as the last 9.7 weeks or 68 days.
    This is reflected in distance as 1.2598 times the orbital
    diameter of Pluto, or two and one-half times the distance
    from your Sun to this farthest known planet which you call
