Abraham saw a planet. The chapter of Al Anaam Surat, verses 76-77, of the Qur’an describes Abraham’s bewilderment, trying to find God:
“When the night grew pitch dark upon him he beheld a planet. He said: This is my Lord. But when it set, he said: I love not things that set. 76 And when he saw the Moon uprising, he exclaimed: This is my Lord. But when it set, he said: Unless my Lord guides me, I surely shall become one of the folk who are astray. 77 And when he saw the Sun uprising, he cried: This is my Lord! This is greater! And when it set, he exclaimed: O my people! Lo! I am free from all that ye associate (with Him).”
How did Abraham see a planet in the sky with his bare eyes? Staring at the night sky, excluding the crescent or full Moon, one would only notice many sparkling objects. Unless one has a space telescope, a device only invented at the beginning of the seventeenth century; no one could tell whether a sparkling object belongs to a star or to one of the planets of the solar system. All objects appear tiny and sparkling. They all look the same to the naked eye. What if there was a planet that was close enough to be seen as clearly. The planet could be larger but would have only appeared as the Moon and the Sun because of its proximity to Earth. Otherwise, how did Abraham see it and thought of it as the Creator of all? If the last visit of such a planet (let us call it the ninth planet or Tyche as NASA called it) to the solar system occurred at the time of Moses and Joshua some 3,500 years ago as elaborated on the Exodus Mystery page, then when was it that Abraham saw it?
Most scholars estimate the time of Abraham to be 2,000 years BC. According to the Old Testament of the Bible  and according to Abu-Salieh paper in 1999 , Abraham is believed by Jews and Muslims to be the first male to be circumcised in the history of mankind. In the report of Professor James Swain’s presidential address to the Bristol Medico-Chirurgical Society, the statement is made that “there are no representations of Egyptian circumcision earlier than the time of Ramses II (1310-1243 BC)”. Later in the British Medical Journal of March 28th 1908 (p.732, first footnote) G. Elliot Smith, Anatomical Department, the University of Manchester  drew the attention to a series of ancient Egyptian pictures of the operation of circumcision, which were carved 2,000 years before the time of Ramses II. He also referred to the bodies of early prehistoric men from Egypt who had been circumcised a thousand year earlier still. Therefore and since he was the first male to be circumcised, Abraham seemed to have lived some 7,000 years ago? Given the incidents that took place at the Exodus between 3,500- 3,600 years ago as explained on the Exodus Mystery page of this site, a 3,550 years ninth planet cyclic trip to the inner solar system becomes more likely.
One of the explanations for the periodicity of the visit is that such a planet oscillates around two stars: our Sun as well as a dim star that is quite far from our solar plateau. The ninth would have to circle in an elliptic path around the two stars that are situated at the focal points of the planet’s elliptic path. Not only will the ninth planet visit Earth in a cycle of 3,550 years; it will also travel farther beyond our Sun for quite a mileage before it swings back, thanks to the Sun’s gravitational pull. There are, therefore, two cycle times for the ninth planet to come close to Earth, one that takes roughly 3,550 years and another that takes between 40-50 years, as will be evidenced later in the following pages of this site.
In 1665, Sir Isaac Newton was the first to show that the law of the force that pulls the Moon toward Earth is the same law that makes an apple fall. Newton concluded that not only does the Earth attract both an apple and the Moon, but everybody in universe attracts every other body. This tendency of bodies to move towards each other is called gravitation. Newton proposed the law, which is now known as Newton’s Law of Gravitation. “The force that pulls two bodies to one another is proportionate to the product of their masses and is inversely proportionate to the square distance separating them”. So the closer the bodies get to one another, the fiercer the gravitational force becomes. Such a force, when exerted on either body, will help it accelerate. Acceleration is inversely proportionate to the mass of the body. The ninth planet may have a much smaller mass than the Sun does. While both interstellar objects are exposed to same gravitational force, resulting in their coming closer to one another, the acceleration of the ninth planet, because it has a much smaller mass than the Sun, becomes high. This helps the ninth planet gain a huge amount of kinetic energy that gets even higher when the ninth planet revolves around the Sun prior to bouncing back in its 3550-year trajectory path before a newer rendezvous with the solar system.
Apollo 13 was the third manned mission by NASA, intended to land on the Moon, but a mid-mission technical malfunction forced the lunar landing to be aborted. The mission was launched on April 11, 1970. Two days later, while the mission was en route to the Moon, a fault in the electrical system of one of the service module’s oxygen tanks produced an explosion that caused both oxygen tanks to fail and also led to a loss of electrical power. The command module remained functional on its own batteries and oxygen tank, which were designed to support the vehicle only during the last hours of flight. The main question was, ‘How to get back safely to Earth?’ The malfunction caused the abortion of the mission. It fortunately happened on the way to the Moon, when the lunar module was still available with its full complement of fuel and food. Had the malfunction occurred after the landing or on the return to Earth after the lunar module had been jettisoned, the crew would not have survived. The crew decided to move to the lunar module. The chances that the boost would be sufficient to put them on a correct trajectory to Earth were not high. Instead of propelling it towards Earth, the crew directed the lunar module to revolve around the Moon, knowing that the gravitational force that would be established between the Moon and the lunar module would be great enough to help accelerate the tiny lunar module mass straight to Earth.
Although not detected yet by any space observatory, I believe that the ninth planet went through same process at the other side of its elliptic path, and the dim star had helped accelerate it back to our solar plateau. Coming close to the Sun, increases the chances of magnetic pull between the two bodies. The surface of the Sun consists of hydrogen (about 74 percent of its mass, or 92 percent of its volume), helium (about 24 percent of mass, 7 percent of volume), and trace quantities of other elements. The Sun has “quakes” that are similar to Earthquakes. Seismic waves produced by Sunquakes can shake the Sun to its very center, just as Earthquakes can cause the entire Earth to vibrate. However, Sunquakes involve much more energy than their terrestrial counterparts. An observed Sunquake, which was produced by a perfectly ordinary solar flare, was equivalent to an Earthquake of a magnitude 11.3 on the Richter scale. That is 40,000 times more energy than the devastating San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, at a magnitude of 8 on the same scale. The Sunquakes will generate immense and multiple solar flares. Solar flares affect all layers of the solar atmosphere—photosphere, corona, and chromosphere—heating plasma to tens of millions of kelvins and accelerating electrons, protons, and heavier ions to near the speed of light. They produce radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum at all wavelengths, from radio waves to gamma rays. The sudden release of magnetic energy stored in the corona powers the flares. The frequency of occurrence of solar flares varies, from several per day when the Sun is particularly active to less than one each week when the Sun is quiet. Large flares are less frequent than smaller ones. Solar activity varies within an eleven-year cycle known as the solar cycle.
At the peak of this cycle there are typically more Sunspots on the Sun, and hence more solar flares. X-rays and ultraviolet radiation emitted by solar flares can affect Earth’s ionosphere and disrupt long-range radio communications. Direct radio emission at deci-metric wavelengths may disturb the operation of radar and other devices operating at these frequencies. The arrival to Earth of protons and positrons in plasma state amongst other particles will have an impact on ferromagnets and electromagnets, as we shall read on Change Management page of this site, and therefore disable the function of most electromechanical machinery.
