Tracking Phaeton through our planetary system

In a previous post, I wrote about the entry into our planetary system of a fragment of a supernova named Vela. This fragment was named Phaeton by the classical Greeks. A Foreward by Rand Flem-Ath to Allan & Delair’s book ‘Cataclysm: compelling evidence of a cosmic catastrophe in 9500 BC’ reported that Phaeton had pulled one of Neptune’s moons from its orbit to become the planet Pluto (recently it has lost that status).

I quote Flem-Ath further. “Phaeton continued its chaotic journey. Hurtling past Uranus, its gravitational pull dislocated the moons of Uranus. As the deadly foreign invader drew near Saturn, one of the ringed planet’s moons, Chiron, was also forced out of orbit. Chiron bounced into a path circling the sun to become the solar system’s smallest planet.

Jupiter and Mercury avoided the chaos because their orbits had carried them far from Phaeton’s destructive course. It was at this point on its reckless journey that Phaeton electromagnetically demolished a planet that existed between Jupiter and Mars.” The asteroid belt in the ‘vacant orbit’ between Jupiter and Mars (discovered in 1801) may be the remnants of the destroyed planet (what a terrifying thought!) named Tiamat by the ancient Akkadians (in the northern half of Babylonia).

“Three more planets still stood in Phaeton’s reckless path: Mars, Earth and Venus. As the stellar marauder, dragging the remnants of the shattered Tiamat and its moon, Kingu, with it, catapulted past Mars, the red planet’s rotation was slowed by their combined gravitational pull. Mars’ two rapidly spinning moons may well be fragments of Tiamat it acquired then.

After leaving its mark on Mars, Phaeton was on a collision course with Earth, charging through the emptiness between Earth and the Moon. Phaeton’s pull stretched the Moon’s orbit and the Earth’s tilt was altered, condemning Earth to a worldwide catastrophe.” (Flem-Ath) See my previous post ‘What Phaeton did to Earth.’

“Phaeton continued its unstoppable flight. Venus ‘flipped ‘ over, sending it into a rotation opposite to that of the other planets. Finally, Phaeton disappeared into the inferno of the Sun.” (Flem-Ath)
