The Nibiru stupid – it burns!

I was searching for a nice tutorial for my students on using Stellarium today, when I came across this youtube video:

At first I thought it might be something cute inserted by the Stellarium team – it is open source, after all, so someone may have slipped it in. But then I read the description:

…If you also want observe Nibiru, just download and install the software Stellarium ( http://www.stellarium.org/ ) and then go directly to the directory C:\Program Files\Stellarium\data, and copy/paste the information below at the end of the ssystem.ini file.

[nibiru]
name = NIBIRU
parent = Sun
radius = 24000
oblateness = 0.0
albedo = 0.9
lighting = true
halo = true
color = 1.0,0.84,0.68
tex_map = ariel.png
tex_halo = star16x16.png
coord_func = comet_orbit
orbit_Epoch = 630033.0
orbit_MeanAnomaly = 220.0
orbit_SemiMajorAxis = 234.888999
orbit_Eccentricity = 0.991700
orbit_ArgOfPericenter = 270.0
orbit_AscendingNode = 194.5
orbit_Inclination = -145.0
sidereal_period = 1336815.0

And *FACEPALM*

So I ask myself, just how fucking stupid are these people? This guy adds data for a nonexistent object into the software, and then claims the output is proof of the existence of that object. And he tells you how to do it.

So just to show how utterly ludicrous this is, I give you the following screenshot from Stellarium. Proof. What more do you need?

    ELENIN AND NIBIRU VIDEO

    is this real or horse shit? I am so fucking stressed out right now its not even funny.

    • Despite the fact that the video you mention (linked to your name) is a clear troll – the skeleton at the end being the old and tired give away – but there are many people who see videos like this and get genuinely freaked out.
      Let me say it clearly: Elenin is not a concern, it is at its closest today, actually, and is just over 35 million km away, or about 10x farther than the moon. It is such a small comet, it is not even visible to the naked eye at that distance.
      An Nibiru is just made up. Plain and simple.
      The object in your video, and others like it, is sunlight reflecting on the lenses of the camera.
