What about the Pictures of Planet X?
Zetatalk released new coordinates
for Planet X on September 15, 2002. A Zetatalk
supporter, Steve Havas obtained CCD images taken of those coordinates.
Imaging at September 15, 2002 Coordinates
These images were analyzed by
the Zetatalk supporters and 3 faint blips were
found. The "Zetas" themselves spoke up and informed the world that 2 of the
candidates were Planet X! Yes, that's right, 2 Planet X in one image! The Zetatalk
explanation is that red light bends and so the red light from Planet X was in one
spot and the white light in another.

Of course Zetatalk can not explain
why all the other stars and planets only have
one image when Planet X is supposed to have 2.
It is doubtful that anyone believes
these silly claims, even Zetatalk supporters.
A french Zetatalk supporter did his own analysis and concluded that there was
nothing in the recent images. He even wonders if it is possible to image Planet X,
attempting to understand why nothing is there.

Several astronomers familiar
with CCD imaging have analyzed the images and found
that the spots that the "Zetas" claim to be Planet X are actually image defects on 2 of
the 30 images. Apparently with CCD imaging, multiple images are taken and then
combined or "stacked" to amplify any dim objects but remove noise that may appear
on only a few of the images.

Steve Havas's Uncorrected Defects
So the long awaited coordinates were given, images taken, and still no Planet X.
In late July 2002 someone claiming
to have worked on a Russian NORLOK
space probe posted pictures of Planet X. There were not very convincing,
few believed them. Still, some of the desperate people pushing Planet X such
as Mark Hazlewood have been making a big deal about these images.
Some obvious clues are that the
captions on the images are in english and use GMT.
At least one person claims these images were taken from the Mission to Mars DVD!
Planet X images
And speaking of Mark Hazlewood,
someone apparently sent him an image they
claimed was Planet X. This was probably someone having some fun with him, but
of course he took the bait as desperate as he is for new information to help him
generate book sales. It must be difficult to maintain interest in Zetatalk with out
the Zetans and no sign of a planet that is supposed to be here in less than a year.
The image was quickly identified
as a picture of one of Jupiter's moons, Io.
This image is from the Hubble Space Telescope and was featured on NASA's
Astronomy Picture of the Day page on June 23, 1997.
Oops... Hazlewood has egg on
his face again!
In January of 2002 an astronomer
took CCD images of the Zetatalk coordinates.
The pictures showed no magnitude 10 diffuse object as specified by Zetatalk.
In fact, the brightest stars in the picture were magnitude 14, which is 100
times fainter than the Zetatalk magnitude 10 planet.
CCD Images of Nancy's Specified Coordinates
Nancy checked the photos and
claimed that her Planet X had been imaged!
She circled a 20th magnitude blip on the image. This faint dot is 10,000
times fainter than her magnitude 10 diffuse planet!
This is like pointing to a flea
and saying "Yes, there's that elephant I
told you was in the backyard."
January 5, 2002 Comparisons
Mark Hazelwood announced on the
Art Bell show that pictures had been
taken of Planet X and provided a link to the Zetatalk version of the pictures.
The original photos and the obvious contradictions were not mentioned.
This shows the desperation
for validation of the existence of the Zetatalk
Planet X. They still claim that the planet was sighted visually at magnitude 11
last year, yet also claims a that a magnitude 20 object in the photo is Planet X.
