Following the posting of an infrared image taken on Jan 5, 2002, the establishment was uneasy but felt the presence of an existing star in the near vicinity would suffice to explain, in the main, to the man on the street, the image. Those following the debate closely, which several thousand are, were not so confused, however, but indeed recognized, in spite of the image makers later protests, that two objects were present in the new image, not on the star charts. In that once is an aberration, in science, but twice is a pattern, the lights went off when the French team came through again with an image taken on Jan 19, 2002. This had the astonishing association of being:
They were horrified. All attempts to suppress such an occurrence had slipped through their fingers, as they had not gone down to the level of trainers and students in their covert warnings to astronomers. The cat was well out of the bag by the
time the establishment became aware. Thus, they huddled, no comment being the mode, as Noted by Steve Havas who found
it odd that David Tholen of the Hawaii complex was absent on the sci.astro Usenet for days after this announcement. The
options were discussed. Should they call it a new object, perhaps a nova, and deal with the motion according to our
coordinates later? Should they ignore it, and have their lack of interest rouse curiosity? Should they state that this is an
existing object, the excuse used on Jan 5, 2002, always the most comfortable answer.
They chose the latter, and proceeded to insert an object in the star charts that would be downloaded by interested parties in the public, so that the public, comparing, would find the new object identified in France an old object, and dismiss the image. They proceeded, but Steve Havas is a gifted contactee whom we have great confidence in, and thus he was guided as to where to look, and when. His early post that he was suspicious when Tholen did not post a comment to Nancy's announcement shows he was aware that activities behind the scenes were in process. Caught in the Act! is his statement to sci.astro, and this it was. By pointing to what was a botched doctoring job, in time for many throughout the world to follow in his footsteps and do their own checking, he produced a catch-22 for the establishment. Should they proceed to fix their botches, hurriedly done by inexperienced image fixing disinfo artists, they had to worry about astronomers worldwide comparing the new star charts to those they had in their possession already.
Thus, the decision was made to withdraw the botched and doctored images, leaving Steve looking like a liar. This supposition was posted today, Mar 2, 2002, on sci.astro, by Nancy, so that those astronomers around the world, who number in the hundreds, who have done their own comparisons and been horrified, will be alerted to the plan. Thus, though Steve may come under some heat, he should and we are confident will, understand that many are out there have proof now of the cover-up, and the search for Planet X has now intensified a thousand fold. For each astronomer looking, or thinking, there will for every astronomer finding the images being doctored, the bastion of integrity the star charts are supposed to be being dooctored, there will be dozens, each, that will be talked to privately in hushed tones about this matter. A wildfire has been lit, and cannot be damped. And Steve cannot be touched else suspicions will go wild.
