Two Suns? Twin Stars Could Be Visible From Earth By 2012

Two Suns

Earth could be getting a second sun, at least temporarily.

Dr. Brad Carter, Senior Lecturer of Physics at the University of Southern Queensland, outlined the scenario to .au. Betelgeuse, one of the night sky's brightest stars, is losing mass, indicating it is collapsing. It could run out of fuel and go super-nova at any time.

When that happens, for at least a few weeks, we'd see a second sun, Carter says. There may also be no night during that time frame.

The Star Wars-esque scenario could happen by 2012, Carter says... or it could take longer. The explosion could also cause a neutron star or result in the formation of a black hole 1300 light years from Earth, reports .au.

But doomsday sayers should be careful about speculation on this one. If the star does go super-nova, Earth will be showered with harmless particles, according to Carter. "They will flood through the Earth and bizarrely enough, even though the supernova we see visually will light up the night sky, 99 per cent of the energy in the supernova is released in these particles that will come through our bodies and through the Earth with absolutely no harm whatsoever. "

In fact, a neutrino shower could be beneficial to Earth. According to Carter this "star stuff" makes up the universe. "It literally makes things like gold, silver - all the heavy elements - even things like uranium....a star like Betelgeuse is instantly forming for us all sorts of heavy elements and atoms that our own Earth and our own bodies have from long past supernovi," said Carter.

Eh, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but, eh, well you see the world came to an end about eleven years ago. During the Why-2-K fiasco.

No such thing as the end of the world. But there is such a thing called solar cycle 24. Super nova explosion my ass, this second sun is actually the star that the 10 planet Nibiru orbits. My best guess is that comet elenin is also this star/sun and will become visible in mid August. What can happen as a result? Chaotic weather,earthquakes,Tsunamis from asteroid impacts and of course rising ocean levels and land masses sinking and land masses rising.I would recomend stockpiling all the things you think you would want to have in a situation where there is no electricty for a period of time. Volcanic ash could block the suns warmth for a year or so before settling leaving a cold planet say 14F--4F for a year or so. WE WILL NOT ALL PERISH !!!! Our ancestors have written extensively on this subject and we need to heed there warnings to better our chances in the catyclsms that will ensue.Good luck and see you all on the back pass.

If Betelgeuse went supernova today it would take 650 years for the light to reach earth (It's 650 light years away!!). The second sun that you'll see in the sky is Elenin (Planet X). You can view the JPL orbital tool located here:
If you align Elenin w/earth & the sun, you will notice the last 2 times it was in line was Feb 27, 2010 (Chile's earthquake) and March 11, 2011 (Japan's Earthquake). Coincidence? You decide cause' it could be a white knuckle ride!!

I haven't seen two suns since the 70's, back then it was almost every weekend, and sometimes during the week!
