The biggest and baddest alignment of all planetary alignments is less than 6 weeks away.
The full lunar eclipse on December 21, 2010 at 8:17am UTC coincides with the near perfect alignment of the Galactic core, Sun, Earth, Moon and Black Sun.
In the above image:
Top left is the position of the Moon relative to the Sun if Orion (direction of the Black Sun) is at the 12 o’clock position.
Bottom left shows the Earth relative to the Sun.
Top right shows the position of the Moon in the sky at the time of the full eclipse.
Bottom left shows the position of the Sun and Earth when looking from the Moon towards the core of our Milky Way galaxy.
Above is an animation of the Moon as it passes through the penumbral and umbral shadows of the Earth. Dimming slightly as it passes through the penumbral shadow and then the subtle red glow as it passes through the umbral shadow.
The December 21st full lunar eclipse will be viewed best in North America. Southern Africa and Central Asia will be on the Sun side for the entire duration.
The question is: Will this alignment result is significant geological and solar events?
So far it appears that alignments do coincide with a significant rise in earthquake activity (more on that in a future post). And if the CME event (coronal mass ejection) on August 1st this year is any indication. Then the side of the Earth facing the Sun during the could literally be in the firing line.
On August 1st 2010, there was a spectacular CME that traveled from the Sun to the Earth at almost half the speed of light.
Was this CME related to the beginning of the next sunspot cycle?
Or was it the unusual solar system configuration that left the Sun as the closest object to the likely location of the Black Sun?
The premise of BlackSun2012.com is our solar system is in a 11,500 year elliptical orbit around a neutron star or black hole, the Black Sun. At this point in our elliptic orbit, the Black Sun is in the direction of Orion.
Is it possible that the CME event was the tail end of a interstellar spark between the Sun and the Black Sun?
If it was then we’re damned lucky the Earth was not in the firing line for that event.
If planetary configurations cause solar events then why don’t we see this phenomenon more often?
Perhaps we do, perhaps the sunspot cycle is in fact an interaction between the Sun and and Black Sun. Could it be that the orbits of the planets, especially the giant planets Jupiter and Saturn directly influence the sun spot cycle? After all the sunspot cycle is approximately 11 years and Jupiter’s orbital period is 11.8 years. Now throw Saturn and other planets into the mix and you have a seemingly chaotic 11 year cycle. Note also that there is much debate over the beginnings and ending of the sunspot cycle. Some cycles seem to merge while others start earlier or later than expected. Eleven years is just an average for the 400 years of solar cycle observations.
In the climax of the movie, Jupiter is collapsed by a exponentially multiplying mass of black monoliths, until it ignites into a second sun. The solar system is now a binary star system.
The film 2010 was released on December 7, 1984.
Coincidentally, just as is the case in the later part of 2010 and 2012, the Earth was the outer most object in the solar system in the direction of the Black Sun in 1984. On midnight of December 7, in Los Angeles, the Sun Earth and Moon were in alignment but it was not a winter solstice and not a lunar eclipse.
A full lunar eclipse on a winter solstice that lines up the galactic core, Sun, Earth and Moon, only occurs once every 10 million years or so.
Along with August 1st of this year, November 22nd and 23rd, 2010, will likely give us some idea of the impact of this alignment as the Moon swings around between the Earth and Black Sun for the last time prior to the exact alignment on December 21, 2010.
