It appears a planet has just sort of wandered into our solar system, beholden to no star, purturbed by nothing:
The peculiar and untethered object, succinctly named SIMP J01365663+0933473 (we’ll call it SIMP for simplicity's sake), was first discovered back in 2016. At the time, researchers thought SIMP was a brown dwarf: an object that’s too big to be a planet, but too small to be a star. However, last year, another study showed that SIMP is just small enough, at 12.7 times the mass and 1.2 times the radius of Jupiter, to be considered a planet — albeit a mammoth one.
“This object is right at the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf, or ‘failed star,’ and is giving us some surprises that can potentially help us understand magnetic processes on both stars and planets,” said Arizona State University’s Melodie Kao, who led the new study on SIMP, in a press release.
Bullshit. The only magnetic process to be understood is that the rogue planet is actually a spaceship.
Ancient peoples since time immemorial have been talking about this day. Unexplainable and unprecidented cultural, economic, biological and political changes started to take place on December 21, 2012; the tremendous magnetic pull of this rogue planet is only one of many contributing factors. Be prepared. Watch the skies, but also, watch the world. You thought these past few years were strange? You haven't seen anything yet.
