The Bad Astronomy Website

I am making this special entry page to my site because of unusual circumstances. There are many people out there who are claiming that a rogue planet, called "Planet X" will be passing the Earth and causing massive destruction, killing millions of people. Let me be very clear here: this planet does not exist. The people making these claims are very, very wrong. However, one, Nancy Lieder, is believed by many people. She claims that Planet X will appear in the sky as a glowing red orb. By coincidence (or is it?), when the Moon is fully eclipsed, it can appear very red. That is why I am making this page: to make sure people understand that the eclipsed Moon is not Planet X! So to make sure: The red object you see in the sky between 3:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. (Universal/Greenwich time) in the sky is not Planet X. It is the eclipsed Moon. >>reference...
