Planet X: SIZE Clarification

In 1995 the Zetas stated that Planet X, though 4 times the size of
Earth, was smaller than Pluto when viewed from Earth.  I’ve been
repeating this guildline, but perhaps this is no longer the case since
it is inbound.

    Though a large planet, 4 times as large as Earth and
    thus larger than Mars or Pluto, it is at this time at a
    much greater distance and thus its visibility is not
    equivalent to Mars or Pluto

Some have ignored the statement that Planet X, per the Zetas, is 4 times
the diameter of Earth, taking the above statements to mean it is smaller
than Pluto, and thus at its distance impossible to see.  Josh has
computed the visible arc seconds, given the 4-times-Earth size and
distance at 9 Sun-Pluto spans, to be 3 times larger than Pluto.

So Planet X is visible from the ground, certainly from observatories, as
has OCCURRED this year in France, Canada, and the US.
