Is this Nibiru? NASA boffins STUNNED as HUGE alien planet found

Aliens, News

A MASSIVE alien planet has been discovered by space boffins – and people think its proof mystical planet Nibiru has arrived.

The object – dubbed OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb – is 13 times the size of Jupiter and is located 22,000 light years away.

Although it’s orbiting its own star, researchers believe the planet could be a failed star, or brown dwarf.

The discovery has fuelled speculation that an alien planet predicted to unleash an apocalypse on Earth is real.

Doomsayers have long thought that Nibiru – or Planet X – is hurtling through space and will appear in our skies at any moment.

The planet will wipe out most of mankind, believers warn.

One user of conspiracy theory website believes OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb could be proof of Nibiru, reports.

The user with the handle Daniel started a forum on the site titled “Has Nibiru Been Hiding in the Heart of Our Galaxy All Along?,” after learning of the news.


One person with the user name Anonymous replied: “Looks like no one really knows what is out there.”

However, others rounded on the forum creator for starting it.

A third with the user name Anonymous Coward posted: “Please apply your mind.

“Nibiru is an ordinary planet that will never orbit near here again and it hasn’t been hiding anywhere.”

TECH: The planet was found using NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope

Details of the new planet – found using NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope – were published in a paper on

It was found using microlensing, a technique for detecting alien worlds which doesn’t require the light from its host star.

The team said: “We report the discovery of OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb, which is likely to be the first Spitzer microlensing planet in the galactic bulge/bar, an assignation that can be confirmed by two epochs of high-resolution imaging of the combined source-lens baseline object.”

The planet is so big the team is not sure if it is actually a failed brown dwarf star instead of a giant planet.

It orbits its parent star approximately every three years.


Earlier this year US space agency NASA announced the discovery of a hypothetical Planet 9 at the edge of our solar system.

The planet is believed to be 10 times bigger than Earth and 20 times farther out from the sun than Neptune – the outer-most planet in the solar system.

The newly discovered planet aids scientists in their quest to figure out the distribution of planets in our galaxy.
