I know some people believe they are just contrails, but riddle me this... how come the same temperatures exist on a daily baisis, as do the number of flights around the world and yet you see regular commercial jets leaving regular contrails that disapate within a matter of moments, yet you have these others that leave these big fat trails that only spread wider and lay a haze across the whole sky.

Brown dwarfs are sub-stellar objects which are too low in mass to sustain hydrogen-1 fusion reactions in their cores, which is characteristic of stars on the main sequence. Brown dwarfs have fully convective surfaces and interiors, with no chemical differentiation by depth. Brown dwarfs occupy the mass range between that of large gas giant planets and the lowest-mass stars; this upper limit is between 75 and 80 Jupiter masses (MJ). Currently there is some debate as to what criterion to use to define the separation between a brown dwarf and a giant planet at very low brown dwarf masses (~13 MJ ), and whether brown dwarfs are required to have experienced fusion at some point in their history. In any event, brown dwarfs heavier than 13 MJ do fuse deuterium and those above ~65 MJ also fuse lithium. Some planets are known to orbit brown dwarfs: 2M1207b, MOA-2007-BLG-192Lb, and 2MASS J044144b
Estimated relative size of the planet Jupiter and brown dwarfs Gliese 229B and Teide 1
Coronagraphs have recently been used to detect faint objects orbiting bright visible stars, including Gliese 229B.
Sensitive telescopes equipped with charge-coupled devices (CCDs) have been used to search distant star clusters for faint objects, including Teide 1.
Wide-field searches have identified individual faint objects, such as Kelu-1 (30 ly away)

The big difference is Y2K would have been a man-made disaster, whereas the '2012' event would be a natural disaster. HUGE difference.
I still believe that the events to occur from the '2012' date will happen, just not in 2012.
Smart move by the folks in power to to get this event hyped up so when it doesn't happen in 2012, the sheeps will just lay back down and think all is going to be ok...then a decade or 2 later, we will all be in for a huge shock.

He may be THE first backyard astronomer to observe AND report his findings to a public forum. If it is legitimate I think an equally equipped backyard astronomer who sees this report will attept to replicate astro's findings and if so have the courage to report it. Additionally, if it is legitimate, then we should certainly have secondary, independent confirmation within the next two months. I do not have the equipment or technological ability to do it.
AP's gone offline? Or into hiding?
Why? Well I'm not sure.....
But I can tell U this:
I left a message on his:
http://www.youtube.com/results?search_q ... =0&spell=1
2 days before he went off line.
AP: $5000 up4grabs if U can prove.....
This bloke offerring the 5k has the gear (telescope,camera,ect). Never heard Bac from AP. Then he went offline.
▲Not an invitation peeps..... It's a warning.
