2012 Precession

The Horn of Africa is breaking apart a new ocean is been made a Magnitude 4.8 just hit the region as a recent manifestation risk to dams in the valley

Geologists working in the remote Afar region of Ethiopia say the ocean will eventually split the African continent in two, though it will take about 10 million years seems it is that end of time now we are in. As Many researchers are  described the events as “truly incredible”. Used to understanding changes in the planet on timescales of millions of years  have seen amazing changes in Afar in the past five years, where the continent is cracking open, quite literally underneath our feet. In 2005, a 60km long stretch of the earth opened up to a width of eight metres over a period of just ten days. Hot, molten rock from deep within the Earth is trickling to the surface and creating the split. Underground and  eruptions are still continuing and, ultimately, the horn of Africa will fall away and a new ocean will form. Thus producing risk in the dams being constructed in the  Ethiopian  side of the valley

“The East African Rift System (EARS) is one the geologic wonders of the world, a place where the earth’s tectonic forces are presently trying to create new plates by splitting apart old ones. In simple terms, a rift can be thought of as a fracture in the earth’s surface that widens over time, or more technically, as an elongate basin bounded by opposed steeply dipping normal faults. Geologists are still debating exactly how rifting comes about, but the process is so well displayed in East Africa (Ethiopia-Kenya-Uganda-Tanzania) that geologists have attached a name to the new plate-to-be; the Nubian Plate makes up most of Africa, while the smaller plate that is pulling away has been named the Somalian Plate (Figure 1). These two plates are moving away form each other and also away from the Arabian plate to the north. The point where these three plates meet in the Afar region of Ethiopia forms what is called a triple-junction. However, all the rifting in East Africa is not confined to the Horn of Africa; there is a lot of rifting activity further south as well, extending into Kenya and Tanzania and Great Lakes region of Africa. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the general geology of these rifts are and highlight the geologic processes involved in their formation.” www.geology.com

The fault line in the Horn of Africa’s earthquake is working actively for the opening of the new ocean while the local dictator pursue blindly his project of “Death Dams”

Scores of earthquakes have struck the Horn of Africa in the region known as the Afar triangle  in  this month of   June cumulating in a  volcanic eruption.  May  sky gazers  claim as the approach of the most expected planet x or nibirue while the other attribute the movement of the comet Elenin which is approaching the earth with  a rendez-vous on the 1st of September 2011,  the new year of Ethiopia..  Geologically the horn of Africa is in movement since  millions of years   for the opening of the new ocean by splitting the region for  creating a new ocean. The government of the dictatorial regimes of Ethiopia  continues his project of mega dams on these dynamic fault lines even seen the  volcanoes and the  continues earthquakes . this will menace not only the local inhabitants by immediate danger  but will have a direct consequences on Sudan and Egyptian populations.

Is your family prepared for an M 5.5, Eritrea – Ethiopia region earthquake? Preparedness experts recommend that area families be equipped to survive up to 72-hours without public services in case of emergency. The simplest way to meet this minimum requirement is with a 72-Hour Survival Kit which will meet your family’s food, water, shelter, first-aid, light, heat, sanitation and communication needs.

Read the United States Geological Survey’s full report on this earthquake activity atM 5.5, Eritrea – Ethiopia region. An important part of the USGS mission is to maintain and improve comprehensive earthquake monitoring in the United States with focus on “real-time” systems. The earthquake information above is preliminary and this event may not yet have been reviewed by a seismologist.

June 17:

A moderate earthquake struck near the Nabro volcano in Eritrea Friday, five days after the stratovolcano first sent an ash plume more than 15km into the air.

Volcanic activity decreased overnight but a 5.5 magnitude earthquake on Friday morning could lead to a further increase in volcanic activity. Images from sat24 , however, show what appears to be a much smaller plume being omitted from the volcano.

 

June 16:

Volcanic activity has increased at the Nabro volcano in Eritrea, just four days after the stratovolcano sent an ash plume more than 15km into the air.

The ash drifted westnorthwest over Sudan Thursday evening threatening to bring further disruption to air traffic in the east Africa region.

Sunday night’s eruption led to some flight cancellations in neighbouring Sudan, Djibouti and Ethiopia, and saw a massive ash plume being carried as far away as Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkmenistan, the Central African Republic and Egypt.

The below MODIS Terra 1km True Colour satellite image, captured Thursday afternoon, shows the ash plume drifting hundreds of kilometres west of Nabro.

Ethiopian Ocean on making :- Earth Quake 4.5 on 31/05/2011 hit gulf of Aden stretching afar triangle and Omo river tectonic fault line of menacing dams

 

 

 

Today an earth quake of  4.5 – GULF OF ADEN – 2011-05-31 00:36 UTC  hit the gulf of Eden streaching to Afar triangle.

This seismicity on the  the fault line of the tree  tactonic plates is working to open  the coming new ocean dividing the Horn of Africa. The last three month has been actively moving. This is not a good news for the Omo river dams  in preparation by the Ethiopian regime since they are located on the fault line of this active plate movements.    [stream provider=youtube flv=http%3A//www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D77ksc00NYLg%26feature%3Dplayer_detailpage img=x:/img.youtube.com/vi/77ksc00NYLg/0.jpg embed=false share=false width=440 height=360 dock=true controlbar=none bandwidth=high autostart=false /] [stream provider=youtube flv=http%3A//www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DRbTwU9k5THU img=x:/img.youtube.com/vi/RbTwU9k5THU/0.jpg embed=false share=false width=440 height=360 dock=true controlbar=none bandwidth=high autostart=false /]

Eritrean Sea Earthquake Magnitude 4.4 menaces Millennium “Death Dams

Today’s earth quake of magnitude 4.4 moved the Red Sea which is a prelude for the making of Eastern African ocean. It has a direct impact on the different dams which are in construction in the Horn of Africa, especially that of the Millennium “Death  Dam”  in the the Nile region of Ethiopia. This the second earth quake in the region since the start of the Death Dam. On March 31 st Magnitude 4.6 – hit Eritrea, Ethiopia and Djibouti border on Afar depression. This is the region where the new ocean is in formation. It is high risk for the population in the area to peruse damming by the dictatorial regime of Ethiopia especially the Omotic population in the rift Vally. The Afar region of Ethiopia is plate form of  a living volcano preparing the breaking of the continent for the creation of this new ocean of Ethiopia. It takes only  a dictator to  try to build dams on the splitting  plates of Eastern Africa trying to connect two separating plates with with a cement. Last year a 26 km  tunnel collapsed on the Omo Dam known as Gibe due to the earth’s movement on its diverging eastern African plates .

Japan doom’s day Earth Quake & Tsunami 3 days after Hawaiian Volcanic high movement showing the scenario of the coming days

The New Earthquake and Tsunami that followed March 12, 2011 devastation will join our past and the coming history of   two remote times in Japanese and world civilization. In the Antediluvian time of pre 12000BCE, the region of Yonaguni not far from the joining point of the three tectonic plates Eurasian, Pacific and Pilipino, once existed   the Japanese Atlantis. It was constructed with great curved rock hewn city similar to the Ethiopian highland Lalibela churches. Today under water vanished from our memories swept away by the moving plates of the earth. One thing sue the Japanese civilizing had had build cities hewn from rocks predicting the coming danger. We hope the nuclear stations and the coming cities are built out of such stones by dispersing the population in larger areas…

Floods in Australia “The Coming Times”

Our  planet is passing to the approaching galactic alignment. This  new era of cleansing our  continents is working  through Icy temperatures, Volcanic irreptions  , Tectonic shift movements, Earth quakes and Catastrophic  hurricanes. Australia is going through, like the rest the continents, receiving her share of the dynamical changes. The earth seems will never be the same again at the end of these events.


In the island Continent Fitzroy River passed 9.2 meters Wednesday morning and was expected to peak at around 9.4 meters later in the same day. The coming rain is expected to raise the flood in the eastern state, Bureau of Meteorology, issued a severe weather warning Wednesday.
Heavy rainfall could lead to flooding and worsen the existing river-flood situation for Maranoa, Darling Downs and Granite Belt, Southeast Coast, Wide Bay and Burnett, and Capricornia.

Around 200,000 people in Queensland have been directly or indirectly affected by the flooding, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported, with 4.000 residents evacuated.
The populations on the other side of the continent life continue as usual. The world seems to get use to catastrophes and dramatic change. The old theses of worming planet are not holding any more.

We all must give our help and our mind to Australia like we did to Haiti and Chili, since every one of is involved in the coming days. Image what will happen if   the under developed countries flooded as much as Australia.  Imagine living in small hats in Africa… what will happen to you?  Pakistan   is  not yet out of its   flood disaster.

Ethiopian Dome is Moving rapidly than expected creating an ocean, with approaching 2012 galactic alignment

As expected and predicted in the recent  past here in our site  the Eastern African  tectonic plates started moving faster  menacing the megalomaniac dams constructed in the moving rift valley rivers ( GebeI, GebeII, GebeIII and that of the Nile, power  Awash dams ) . These destructive dams have been constructed against the international criticism due to their disastrous    effects on the inhabitants of the riparian countries around Ethiopia, since the Abyssinian highland plateau has being the main source of life giving water as far as Egypt. Shebelle River for Somalia, Omo for Kenya, the rest is watering for Sudan and Djibouti. These destructive dams are not supported by geological and scientifically based nature friendly studies. They are rather build for the water power to be used against the surrounding countries  domination as recently manifested in the regime’s  declaration of  war against Egypt, a country only  depending on the dammed water of the Nile for her survival.

Triple Junction in the Afar region of Ethiopia. Image shows areas of stretched and oceanic crust as well as areas of exposed flood basalts that preceded rifting. Areas unshaded or covered by flood basalts represent normal continental crust. As the crust is pulled apart you end up with thinned crust with a complex mixture of continental and volcanic rock. Eventually the crust thins to the point where oceanic-type basalts are erupted which is the signal that new ocean crust is being formed. This can be seen in the Gulf of Aden as well as a small sliver within the Red Sea. The original extent of the flood basalts would have been greater, but large areas have been buried within the rift valley by other volcanic eruptions and sediments. Nasa photos

A magnitude 5.1-5.3  earthquake hit Hosanna town in Southwestern Ethiopia on   Sunday, December 19, 2010 at 12:14:24 UTC Local time at epicenter : Sunday, December 19, 2010 at 03:14:24 PM (at epicenter, Depth (Hypocenter) : 9.8 km
Send an “earthquake experience report” for this earthquake Geo-location(s) (horizontal uncertainty +/- 15.3 km) : Approx. 10 km from Hosanna, Fonka and Jajura 200 km (124 miles) SW (215°) from ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia 219 km (136 miles) N (9°) from Gidole, Ethiopia.

Last month, an earthquake swarm at Yemen caused alarm. The swarm was situated at the opening to the Red Sea at the Gulf of Aden, and seemed to be an unusual place for seismic activity.

According to the history of the area, at USGS, the Yemen-Gulf of Aden-Djibouti area IS seismic, but in a minor way. Between 1950 through Sunday in Hosanna this area had 56 earthquakes ranging between mag 4.0-5.9. There were no quakes greater than mag 5.9 during that date range. But in 2010 there have been 31 (as of 1:00pm), which is 2/3 as many as in the last sixty years. “

This famous volcanic landscape of the Afar Triangle region results from tectonic forces working deep below the surface as we have seen it above. The tectonically active nature of the Ethiopian Rift expresses itself in the many volcanic features in this area, including Erta Ale, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and numerous other volcanic cones and fissures.

“The highly active volcanic boundaries along the edges of tectonic ocean plates may suddenly break apart in large sections, instead of little by little as has been predominantly believed. In addition, such sudden large-scale events on land pose a much more serious hazard to populations living near the rift than would several smaller events”,  Prof. Cindy Ebinger, professor of earth and environmental sciences at the University of Rochester .

Starting 2010 up unto the 2012 the earth is passing through an intensified magnetic filed in the galaxy centers increasing solar flares having a direct effect on seasons and climate change. This has been manifesting through  extreme weathers and tectonic movements  causing – freezing winters, hot summers,  heat waves, foods , landslides, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tsunamis etc.. Over a quarter million people in 2010 perished – the deadliest year in more than a generation.

The earth has gone in its geological histories in the past the same destructive and cleansing acts. In its historical records such events has been recorded in past civilizations. Based on the past events the ancient not only recorded but predicted such coming events. Ancient Ethiopic apocariftic   writing had predicted   the coming events at the end of times as being the 8th millennium events. The Ethiopian prediction is based on books like the pre deluvian Book of Enoch, and other secretly kept books coming down from the past .

The German meteorologist Alfred Wegener (1880-1930) called such movement as Continental Drift. He believed that the continents had at one time been joined together in a supercontinent that he named Pangaea, meaning “all lands.” In the other words if we follow  Wagner’s theory ,it seems  the earth was smaller from what we know it today as  it is constantly bulging like a balloon drifting the continent and land shift  apart. But if we look at tectonic theory the earth is the same see the following videos  and compare:-


This new tectonic activity on  Sunday December 19, 2010 in Hosanna on in the East African Rift Valley has aggravated to widen the vast fissures where the African Plate is being split into two parts. Five years ago , there was a major tectonic event in the Afar region when a rift 60 km (35 miles) long and 8 meters (26 feet) wide was torn apart  just in a few  days. It was with a series of earthquakes, and a volcanic eruption.

The Nubian Plate or the main plate of the African continent and on the eastern coast the Somalian Plate, are in constant movement in opposite directions at a divergent plate boundary creating an ocean. The region which will soon be under water is known as the Afar Triangle. The meeting point of this tectonic movement which includes north-eastern Ethiopia, Djibouti and the southern Red Sea region of Eritrea. The news ocean is created by theses diverging three plates moving away from each other due to an upwelling of magma from the mantle, which melts the crust and causes it to thin and pull apart. Horn of Africa or the part known as the Somalian Peninsula will secede from the rest of the continent, creating an island. This phenomenon is similar to the mid-ocean ridges, where hot magma rises up and pushes the oceanic crust out to each side in the process of seafloor spreading.

H.A.R.R.P considered as New Arm of Armageddon of DOOM’s day as men play God?

Decades have passed since    HAARP has been suspected being responsible and an instrument of Armageddon bringing all recent earth quakes, floods, forest fires, drought that our planet is enduring. While others put the responsibility on the coming Doom’s day effect which will culminate on 2012 at the end of Maya calendar cycle.  The Ecologists put the main culprit being pollution caused by excessive use of fossil fuel all over the world. The religious leaders claimed   a sign of the end of the time as prophesied, when men play as God. These days’ voices have been raised against the installation of HAARP even among some political leaders. Most of the denunciation of the HAARP comes from some people one way or another worked in and around the project.

HAARP The High frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is a program focused on the study of upper atmospheric and solar-terrestrial physics and Radio Science.

It has been there  since the 1950s to investigating the  fundamental physical principles which govern the earth’s ionosphere.

Brabcheces are found  in Puerto Rico, near the Arecibo Observatory, and the other (known as HIPAS) in Alaska near Fairbanks.

The  European Incoherent Scatter Radar site (EISCAT), a premier ionosphere research facility located in northern Norway near Tromso the offspring of HARRP. It has some reflect factlties all around the earth Jicamarca, Peru; near Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod (“SURA”) and Apatity, Russia; near Kharkov, Ukraine and in Dushanbe, Tadzhikistan.

HAARP in its offical site gives the follwing mains resons of its funtioning:-

  • The Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high power transmitter facility operating in the High Frequency (HF) range. The IRI will be used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere for scientific study.
  • A sophisticated suite of scientific (or diagnostic) instruments that will be used to observe the physical processes that occur in the excited region.

HAARP is composed of  power, high-frequency (HF) phased array radio transmitter (known as the Ionosphere Research Instrument (IRI), used to stimulate  ionosphere,  geophysical research instruments including an HF ionosonde, ELF and VLF receivers, magnetometers, riometers, a UHF diagnostic radar and optical and infrared spectrometers and cameras which are used to observe the complex natural variations as well as to detect artificial effects produced by the IRI.

HARRP is a  big big  capacitor whcih  only stores and releases electrical energy, without dissipating any. In reality, all capacitors have imperfections within the capacitor’s material that create resistance.

Men through centuries were trying to harness energy  similar to the Ark of  covenant.  Th king of o kings of Ethiopia Menilk the II used the holy Ark to bit the invading Italian troops in 1896 at   the hills of Adwa . The Biblical account relates that during the trip of the Israelites, the Ark was carried by the priests ~2,000 cubits (Numbers 35:5; Joshua 4:5) in advance of the people and their army or host (Num. 4:5-6; 10:33-36; Psalms 68:1; 132:8). When the Ark was borne by priests into the bed of the Jordan, the river was separated, opening a pathway for the whole of the host to pass over (Josh. 3:15-16; 4:7-18). The Ark was borne in a seven day procession around the wall of Jericho by three priests sounding seven trumpets of rams’ horns, the city taken with a shout (Josh. 6:4-20). When carried, the Ark was always wrapped in a veil, in tachash skins (the identity of this animal is uncertain), and a blue cloth, and was carefully concealed, even from the eyes of the Levites who carried it.

HARRP is like a man made Ark which is made to control nature.

According to the its institute  HARRP  to ensure the safety of all flight operations in the vicinity of HAARP, the facility employs an aircraft alert radar (AAR) to automatically shut off appropriate transmissions when aircraft are detected either within or approaching a defined safety zone around the facility. Flight tests are conducted regularly to demonstrate the capability of the HAARP radar to detect even very small targets. Research operations are not conducted unless the AAR is operating satisfactorily.

2012 Precession the end of the old and beginning of new dimension

by Dan Eden for ViewZone [See Dan Eden’s Confidential Message]

Note: Since this article was first published, viewzone has received more information on “doomsday,” including visual and scientific evidence that a solar “extinction event” happened in the past. See Part 2 – The Previous Doomsday of 12,950 BC: what was it like? for details.

ViewZone asked me to write a story about the Mayan Calendar. There is a common belief that the calendar holds a prophecy that the world will end in 2012. I knew very little about the whole topic when I began doing the research. I like to think I had an open mind. My investigation began with mainstream archaeology and expert interpretations of the calendar. But it soon took a turn that made my hair literally stand on end. I am now convinced that these prophecies are true.

To understand what is likely to happen to Earth and its people, you will need to remain calm and try to follow the facts. It’s not as simple as some people describe. It requires an understanding of some fairly complicated science, but I think I can explain this in a way that you will easily understand.

The Calendar — A Descrption

First, the Mayan calendar is also sometimes called the Aztec Calendar. This calendar is recorded as a carving on the Aztec “sun stone,” currently on exhibit in the National Museum of Anthropology and History located within Chapultepec Park, Mexico City. There’s a lot we could say about this carved stone but most of those details are irrelevant to the “end times.”

Our modern calendar, called the Gregorian Calendar, has daysweeksmonths and years. In the Mayan Calendar it’s more complex. In fact, it’s really three calendars at the same time.

First there’s a religious calendar that takes 260 days to complete a full religious cycle. There are 20 “weeks” made up of 13 days. Each week has a special name, a graphic logo and unique meaning associated with it. This reminds me of the Chinese years which cycle through “the year of the rat” and “the year of the monkey,” etc., each with it’s special image and meaning.

Graphic logos for each of the 20 religious weeks.

Next there is the solar calendar. This has 365 days, like our modern calendar. It’s divided in 18 months of 20 days each. At the end of the cycle there’s five special days considered to be unlucky because they don’t belong to any month. Each of the months has a special name, graphic logo and some special significance, similar to the icons for the weeks in the religious calendar.

So it is possible, for any specific date, the calculate the religious week and the solar month and to predict the influences that might be guiding fate. But that’s not really what’s involved with the prophecy of 2012. To understand that we must look at the third calendar, called the long count.

While the first two cycles could be thought of as cogs or gears (see below) revolving through time, the long count is a linear number of days, starting from the first day, “1,” and counting through each day to the present. Any day in history can be recorded using the long count and, with some simple mathematics, the corresponding religious week and solar month can also be found.

In writing this article, I thought about creating a javascript program that would do this calculation. My friend, Gene Matlock, then told me that when he was in Mexico, he found a place that sold wooden, mechanical calculators with gears that did just that. He said that Mexicans sometimes used these mechanical calendars to foretell the future or to find auspicious times for special events like marriage or births. Anyway, although it might be nice to know the religious and solar significance, it’s the long count that foretells Doomsday.


Cog or “gears” can be used to compute the religious and solar cycles for any date.

The days of the long count are numbered with an unusual system. Instead of writing numbers as we do, from right to left with each place being a multiple of 10 (i.e. 10000, 1000, 100, 10, 1), the Mayans had only 5 places.

The first place recorded a number from 0 to 20. To the left, the second place could have a range from 0 to 17; the third from 0 to 19; the fourth from 0 to 19 and the last from 0 to 12. The numbers were written from right to left, like our system, separated by a dot. Instead of multiples of 10, the first place had a multiple of 1 (like our system); the second place a multiple of 20; the third a multiple of 360; the fourth a multiple of 7200 and the fifth a multiple of 144000.

So a long count number, for example, could be written as 4.12.5.9.0 and would be calculated as follows:

(4 x 144000) + (12 x 7200) + (5 x 360) + (9 x 20) + (0 x 1) or a long count of 664,380.

It’s not too difficult to realize that the maximum number which can be recorded this way would be12.19.19.17.20, although some researchers like to write it as 13.0.0.0.0. This amounts to a long count number of 1,872,000 days or 5125.36 years of our modern calculations. Obviously, the calendar is very old!

Over the years, archaeologists have found carved monuments that recorded the long count for known dates in Mayan history. Once a date was fixed in time, it was easy to determine “day 1” as August 11th, 3114 BC. And it was also easy to calculate the date at which the calendar would end —December 21st, 2012.

Trust me, just because the calendar ends doesn’t prove that time, or the world, or life will end. We need to look carefully at December 21, 2012 and try to understand why the Mayans never calculated a date beyond this point in time. To do this we must move from Archaeology to the science of Astronomy and Astrophysics.

It’s all about the Sun

It’s ironic (or maybe not) that the Mayan Calendar is often called the “sun stone.” While the calendar does have “solar” days, acknowledging the 365 days it takes for Earth to rotate around the Sun, it is also true that the Sun plays a key role in the final day of the “long count.” To understand what will happen to the Sun on December 21, 2012, we need to review some scientific terms like “ecliptic,” “barycenter,” and “sunspots.” These are important in the discussion that follows. We’ll start with the most difficult one first.

Terms we will encounter…What is the Barycenter?

You’ve no doubt heard that Earth revolves around the sun. Well, actually, that’s not quite true!

Have you heard the term “center of gravity”? It’s a technical-sounding term for something pretty simple. It’s the exact center of all the material (that is, mass) that makes up the object. For example, if you have a straight stick, like a ruler or yardstick, there’s a place at the middle where you can balance it on your finger. That’s its center of gravity.

Ruler's center of gravityBut the center of gravity may or may not be the point that is exactly in the middle, distance-wise, of the object. Some parts of the object may be heavier (denser) than others. If you have something like a sledge hammer that is heavier on one end than the other, the center of gravity will be much closer to the heavy end than the lighter end.

Hammer's center of gravityTo get an idea of where the center of gravity is, rest the ends of any object like the ruler or a pencil on one finger from each hand. Slowly move your fingers together without dropping the object. Your fingers will meet underneath the object’s center of gravity. You can balance the object on one finger at that special place.

The actual center of gravity could be close to the surface or deep inside, depending on whether the object is flat like a ruler or a dinner plate, or “three-dimensional,” like a box or a ball. And if you let the object spin (like when you throw it), it will try to spin about that point.

In the case of the Earth and the sun, both bodies actually revolve, or spin, around the very center of the mass (similar to center of gravity) between them. This point is called the “barycenter.” Earth and the sun are “connected” by the gravity pulling them together. It’s just like the light end and heavy end of the sledge hammer. Compared to the size of the sun, Earth is about like a flea on a cat! So the center of mass between the Earth and the sun is almost–but not quite–the very center of the sun.

In the case of a planet the size of Jupiter, which is 318 times as massive as Earth, the barycenter of Jupiter and the sun is a bit further from the sun’s center. So, as Jupiter revolves around the sun, the sun itself is actually revolving around this slightly off-center point, located just outside its center. Thus, a planet the size of Jupiter will make the sun (or any star) appear to wobble a tiny bit. This picture shows you that the center of mass and barycenter can be slightly different points. It isn’t meant to be very accurate!

Barycenter of Jupiter and Sun

We can take advantage of this bit of knowledge and look for large planets in other solar systems by learning to detect this type of tiny wobble in the star’s position.

For now, let’s forget all the small planets and focus on Jupiter. It makes one complete trip around the Sun every 11.861773 years. There’s a new theory put forth by Dr. Rollin Gillespie which shows that Jupiter, and to a smaller degree the other less massive planets, may trigger the 11 year cycle of sunspots and solar flares.

For now, let’s forget all the small planets and focus on Jupiter. It makes one complete trip around the Sun every 11.861773 years. There’s a new theory put forth by Dr. Rollin Gillespie which shows that Jupiter, and to a smaller degree the other less massive planets, may trigger the 11 year cycle of sunspots and solar flares.

Here’s how it works.

The  is not a single point in the Sun. Because the Sun is a rotating gaseous sphere, the barycenter forms a vertical, cylindrical “sleeve” that is partially inside and outside the main solar body. All of the planets have such a “sleeve,” one inside the other, depending on their relative mass and the location of their barycenters. The particular sleeve representing the mass of Jupiter intersects the solar surface at 35.9 degrees North and South. This is precisely where sunspot and flare activity begin and end during each 11 year cycle.

The new cycle has already begun with the recent observation of a solar spot with reverse polarity. But some surprising activity on March 27, 2008, showed some huge eruptions with M-class radiation at about the equatorial region of the Sun. [ See Solar Map]. These surprising eruptions suggests a barycenter of disturbance from an object even more massive than Jupiter, placing the “sleeve” outside the Sun. Could this be the beginning of the Galaxy’s effects (keep reading to learn more about this) on our Sun?

Scientists have noted that when Jupiter and Saturn are aligned on the same side of the Sun, the solar maximum (the period when we have the most sunspots and flares) is at its weakest; when they are on opposite sides of the Sun the solar maximum is at its strongest. The positions of these two planets on December 21, 2012 are ideal for extreme solar activity.

Above: Position of Jupiter and Saturn on 12/21/2012.

We recently learned that we had overlooked an even more significant alignment that we are presenting here for the first time [Above]. There is a straight-line alignment from Jupiter, the Earth, the Sun and (most significantly) the Galactic Center (a black hole). This alignment happens on December 20th, 2012 — just a few hours before the actual “doomsday.”

These cylinders are usually quite orderly because the planets adhere to a narrow plane, called theecliptic which resembles a thin plate extending from the equator of the Sun. The planets hang out here because (in simple terms) this is the zone where the gravitation of the system is the strongest.

The planets orbit the Sun in a narrow plane called the ecliptic.

But nature is never perfect. The Sun rotates at a slight angle (7.25 degrees), much as our Earth does. As it wobbles, it tilts the sleeves, causing them to clash with eachother and eventually disrupt the surface. Having the barycenters of the to most massive planets, Jupiter and Saturn, in maximum misalignment is especially disruptive. This disturbance, to put it simply, works its way to the surface and erupts in sun spots and solar flares or CME’s (Coronal Mass Ejections).

The last solar cycle was at its maximum in 2001. Each active solar cycle has a period when the flares are strongest, usually happening near the solar equator, called the “solar maximum.” This is significant because the next “solar maximum” event will coincide with December 21, 2012. But wait — there’s much more!

Solar flares are pieces of the sun which leap into space, discharging radiation and strong electrical currents that travel outward into space. They often fall back to the surface of the Sun. Sometimes, a very strong flare, called a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), actually leaves the Sun and this deadly mass shoots out from the Sun towards the planets like a bullet. Usually these CME’s don’t hit anything but occasionally they hit a planet like Earth. Some believe a powerful CME once hit Mars.


Most solar flares are small. But even a small flare can be dangerous. In 1989 a flare hit the North American continent and fried electric lines, zapped power grids in the US and Canada, and created large power backouts. Flares can also effect our moods and physical health. In theory, a large flare impacting the Earth could zap the ionosphere (there goes all the satellites, cellphones, GPS…) and irradiate the surface, killing every living organism that it touched.

Solar flares and sun spots have an average cycle of 11.120412 years (estimated from one “solar maximum” to the next). Right now, 2009, we are just entering the active period of cycle number 24, after an unusually long period of quiet solar activity. This quiet period led some people at NASA to conclude that cycle 24 would be a very quiet cycle — contradicting the earlier predictions they made for an extremely violent cycle. Now they have redacted their call for a quiet cycle since the activity has again commenced. The scientists who study the Sun have also recently announced that they have measured the solar currents, deep inside the Sun, which correspond the Dr. Gillespie’s barycenter currents. But to date they have not been able to agree what causes these deep currents of solar material.

The small discrepancy between the average 11.120412 year solar cycle and the 11.861773 year period of Jupiter is close enough to be significant but suggests that something else is also influencing solar disturbances. Sure, it could be attributed to the various positions of the other less massive planets, but it could also be something even more significant — the Milky Way.

The Galactic Alignment of December 21, 2012

The Perfect Storm

Our solar system is part of a huge disc shaped collection of stars and planets called the Milky Way. We’re located somewhere on the edge of the disc, slightly on top of the narrow disc. But very soon we’ll be moving to the bottom of the disc. This change, from top to bottom, begins on December 21, 2012.

Yes, that’s right. On the same day when our Sun is at it’s solar maximum, something will happen that’s never happened for thousands of eons of time — the ecliptic of our solar system will intersect with the Galactic plane, called the “Galactic Equator” of the Milky Way! [see star chart].

If you imagine our solar system as a bunch of peas on a plate, with a huge meatball in the center, imagine the Milky Way as a city-size pizza with the “Guiness World Book Record Meatball” in its center!

Prior to December 2012 we have been drifting on the top of the pizza, never really able to see the bottom. The plate and pizza are not parallel. They are moving at different angles. We’ve been drifting down, down, down… and on December 21st, 2012, we will be exactly level with the crust — forming an “x” at the Galactic Equator where galactic gravity is the strongest. After 2012, if we are still here, we will be passing through the bottom zone, viewing the Milky Way pizza from the South.

Yes, there’s even more!

By some amazing coincidence, not only will we be intersecting with the Galactic Equator, but we will be doing this precisely aligned with the center of the Galaxy where there is maximum mass! More mass means more gravity. More gravity means more influence from those barycenters in our Sun. That means exponential increases in solar disruptions — all coinciding on the same day! Whew

Magnetic Somersaults – Other possibilities on December 21, 2012:

In the first quarter of 2001, the Sun switched magnetic poles. This occurs every eleven years. Prior to this the Sun’s north magnetic pole was at the north rotational pole. Now the Sun’s north magnetic pole is at its south pole. Since opposite poles attract, the magnetic poles of the Earth and Sun are now at their most stable.

Just about the time of 2012 Winter Solstice, the Sun’s poles will switch back. During this switch there will be a tendency for the Sun’s magnetic field to pull the Earth’s field with it.

If the Earth’s magnetic poles switch, this would put stress on the planet aggravating earthquakes and volcanos, not to mention destruction of the electrical power distribution grid. And, if the switch happens fast enough don’t ever expect your computer to work again. But if you have old tube type equipment, keep it. It should survive just fine. It will work if you can find electricity.
