VANCOUVER, BC – In an in-depth ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, New Zealand astronomer David Greg has refuted beyond a reasonable doubt the claims made by “Planet X” researcher Marshall Masters and his team that the Brown Dwarf star system is in our inner solar system and on a trajectory for a cataclysmic flyby of Earth in the 2015-16 timeframe.
Based on his research shown in the interview, Mr. Greg states, “There is no brown dwarf star in our solar system.” Mr. Greg continues, “The nearest known brown dwarf is 6.5 light years away, further away than our nearest ‘other’ star most commonly know as ‘Alpha Centauri’ (Rigel Kentaurus), which is 4.3 light years away. If a brown dwarf were within our solar system, it would certainly reflect visible light from the Sun and would be at least as easily visible in the sky as Saturn or Mars. If it were within our inner solar system (within the orbit of Mars), it would be unmistakable. Again, brown dwarfs are only ‘invisible’ to us in visible light because of their vast distance away from our Sun.”
David Greg concludes, “From my analysis of Jorge Urena’s photos in Marshall Master’s video, I can conclude without any doubt that the “orbs” of light in the photo at 1829 hours can not possibly be Venus and Jupiter, as they are too close to the Sun and the position of Mercury is wrong. I am satisfied that Jorge Urena did in fact photograph the planetary conjunction at 2000 hours, but Marshall Masters’ ‘Planet X’ object” is not a real object, it is just a type of lens flare.”
David Greg has provided a written summary of his analysis in the ExopoliticsTV interview as follows
Summary Statement by Astronomer David Greg
I have carefully analyzed the photos taken by Jorge Urena, in Marshall Masters’ video “Planet X System Observations and Orbital Analysis”.

There are two key images presented in Marshall Masters’ video, the photo taken at 2000 hours of a planetary conjunction, and a second photo, taken earlier at 1829 hours, which supposedly shows “Planet X” (a brown dwarf).
The photo of the planetary conjunction taken by Jorge Urena from an aircraft at 37,000 feet between El Salvador and Lima, Peru at 2000 hours is used as “proof” to verify the earlier images, in particular the image at 1829 hrs, which Marshall Masters claims is “The first visible light non-governmental observation of the Planet X System Brown Dwarf sun”
I examined all of these images carefully and checked the positions of the planets Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, relative to the Sun, using StarryNight Pro 6 astronomy software – the same astronomy software used by Marshall Masters in his video.
Although Jorge Urena’s photo taken at 2000 hours certainly does appear to be the conjunction of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, the other images presented do not match the planets’ actual positions and are nothing more than lens flare and/or internal lens reflections typical of iPhone type cameras, but in this case, likely caused by reflections and refraction of the bright sunlight though the double layer Perspex windows in the aircraft cabin.
In the genuine image of the planetary conjunction (2000 hrs.), overlaid in StarryNight Pro, we can see that there is approximately 1.25 degrees of angular separation between Venus and Jupiter, and there is approx. 15.75 degrees angular separation between Venus and the Sun. However, using the distance between the two orbs of light in the photo at 1829 hrs, we can see that the distance from Venus to the Sun is far too short. Since the known angular separation between Jupiter and Venus was about 1.25 degrees, we can estimate the angular separation between Venus and the Sun (in the photo at 1829) as being approximately 2.5 degrees, however we know that the Sun was much further away than that, at about 15.75 degrees angular separation. So the photo at 1829 hours cannot possibly show Venus and Jupiter.
Further, if we check the actual positions of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in StarryNight Pro, we see that “Mercury” was not in the correct position in the photo at 1829. Mercury should have been some distance to the right of where Masters indicated it to be. This is further proof that the “orbs” of light in the critical image (1829 hrs.) cannot possibly be Jupiter and Venus as claimed by Masters.
Another consideration is the solar halo that we see in several of the photos. A solar halo is 22 degrees from the Sun. This is due to the angle of refraction of the sunlight as it passes through the hexagonal shaped ice crystals in the cold upper atmosphere. This gives us another useful tool to judge the “distance” or angular separation between the two orbs of light and the Sun. Since the radius of the solar halo is 22 degrees from the Sun, we can see that the orbs of light are only a few degrees away from the Sun, instead of about 15.75 degrees – as they should be if they were in fact Jupiter and Venus.
