I AM LOOKING FOR ANY INFORMATION REGARDING THE PLANETARY ALIGNMENT. E.G. DATES;WEB SITES;LINKS. IF ANYONE OUT THERE CAN HELP ME PLEASE E-MAIL ME. I AM NEW AT THIS COMPUTER BIZZ AND I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON THIS FOR DAYS. THERE IS TONS OF INFO ON SPACE AND SUCH BUT I CAN'T LOCATE INFO ON THE UPCOMING ALIGNMENT OF THE PLANETS. ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED FROM,DORI

There will not be an alignment of all of the planets for possibly a millennium. As far as two planets lining up, that may happen within a few hundred years. I think.

Actually

There will be a planetary allignment 5th of May 2003..

Too bad this is coupled with the theory of the 12th Planet, or Planet X proposed by Zacharia Zitchin.

I cant remember the site URL, but if you look for the keyword "Etemenaki" you should be able to find it :)

Happy hunting.

So what's in these alignments apart from looking aesthetically pleasing?

A fear factor in planetary alignments derives from Chaos Theory. It's been awhile since I've read up on such things, but when the periodic cycles line up in such a way, there is a chance (however small) that the whole thing might just blow apart. Planets scattering willy-nilly.

I forget the source where I read that at, so it's quite possibly pseudoscience.

This next is almost definitely pseudoscience. People are afraid that the tidal forces involved in a full planetary alignment would wreak havoc on orbital mechanics.


Anyway. Is there really supposed to be one on May 5th, 2009?
With these new planets being discovered in the Kaiper Belt, the alignment might get cancelled, eh?

I'd wouldn't call them planets, but that's another well known discussion/problem. ;)
Thanx for the input, btw, I didn't know such myths/theories.

Hum,
Jupiter and Neptune are quite close then, but hardly worth mentioning....

(I assume you mean our solar system) i imagine the next big alignment will be around two thousand years time from now.

On May 5th, 2009, the planets look like this;

Er, what alignment?

and on May 5th, 2003, they looked like this;

Again, no alignment.

Why can't woo woo's look up facts?

About 1975-1980 some scientists with real credentials published a book called The Jupiter Effect, which described an alignment of the major planets in 1984. They claimed that it would have cataclysmic effects. They knew that what they were saying was nonsense and one or more of them recanted years after the book was published (probably because they wanted to reestablish their credibility in the academic community).

I do not think such an alignment will occur again for thousands, perhaps millions, of years.

Coincidentally, In the 1970's there were more than the usual number of preachers talking about the end times predicted in the book of revelations. Some of this was due being in the last quarter of the second millennium. Some was due to arithmetic based on adding some magic numbers to the date of the creation of Israel. Perhaps the authors of the book were aware of this religious movement and expected it to be a good time to write their phoney book.

The end time preachers cited the book as scientific support for the disastrous events prophesied in the book of revelations.

As posted previously, I remembered a grand alignment happening in 1982 and described in a book called The Jupiter effect. I have discovered that my memory was a bit off: the alignment occurred in 1982, not 1984.

In 1982 all nine planets were on one side of the sun, although not in a straight line. The 2000 & 2002 alignments involved only about 5-6 planets. In one of these alignments, the Earth was on the opposite side of the sun from the other aligned planets.

Minor alignments of 4-6 planets occur every 20-30 years, but a grand alignment of all nine planets is much rarer. I am not sure how often a grand alignment occurs.

The book was a lot of nonsense about cataclysmic events being caused by the alignment in 1982, and the authors (who knew they were writing nonsense) should have been ashamed of themselves.

Yeah, in March 1982, all the planets were within about 100 degrees on the same side of the Sun. Hardly an 'alignment'.

Given that the message of the OP has date of 1999, I strongly suspect that he/she was alluding to the planetary alignment of May 2000, when Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn were all more or less forming a line

Hi, in that occation of 9 planet alignment at the same side of the sun, I was 2 years old, and I woke up with an sing on my right arm, it was like a tattoo, but disappear 4 hours after, it was like Jupiter sign, I dont know Why? Who?? did me that... some of you know something like this????

macravel, this is a sign that you need to become an astronaut and travel to Jupiter's moon Europa. You need to get there or else bad things will happen. You need to!

I was 7 years old. I lived on the central coast of New South Wales, Australia. Yes, it was fancifully predicted by some minority dregs of the 60's that in early 1982 the planetary alignment of that year would cause incredble global catastrophes and natural disaters. Extreme hurricanes, tidal waves and earthquakes were among some of the chaotic events forecast. Anyone living on a coastline was encouraged to get as far in land as they could. By whom? There was various literature and minority groups spreading this doomsday warning.

How do I know? Because my Mother was very much influenced by the literature which was circulating concerning this, and around March 1982 she took the advice and fled from the coast. We ended up in the rural N.S.W. town of Mudgee. We remained there for a couple of weeks till my Mother was sure we had safely avoided any prophetical turmoil, after which we returned to our home on the coast.

Now, of course there was no cataclysmic destruction of epic proportions as was feared. But, as I remember, there was unusual seismic, tidal and meteorological activity reported and recorded all around the world. I recall on the way to Mudgee, peering out of the back of my Mum's boyfriend's Panel Van as it trekked down a desolate dusty country back road and seeing the most amazing cloud formation I had ever seen and have not seen since. For as far as the eye could see and postioned almost exactly the same distance apart from each other in the sky were hundreds of boot shaped clouds. I also recount (and alot of you may consider me a complete "nutbard") seeing a U.F.O. a couple of days later. I was standing next to my Mother who was conversing with residents of a Caravan Park (that's a trailer park, for all you Yankees out there) we were staying at when I looked out into the distance at a regular puffy cumulo nimbus cloud and, to my astonishment, witnessed a silver coloured object doing horizontal loops around this cloud. At the time I thought to myself, "Hey, that looks like the inside of one of those wine boxes I've seen adults drink, blown up." It did look like an inflated silver wine box bladder, or like a novelty balloon full of helium. That very well may have been what it was but I doubt it. There is no way the wind could have been moving this thing so controlled and steady like. Also, I could see this thing clearly from a considerable distance and it would have been much larger in actual size than a wine box bladder or balloon. It did about 4 orbits of the cloud before it never reappeared from behind the cloud. For all intents and purposes, what I saw would probably be best described as a flying silver disc or saucer but just a bit fatter.

I think I yanked on my Mum's arm trying to draw her attantion to the ufo but by the time she responded it had vanished and she was saying, "That's nice, Dear.", or something to that effect.

Anyway, I've rambled long enough and I credit someone being able to remember a strange mark on their arm when they were 2 years old. I don't doubt it though, and maybe I should have checked for the ancient symbol of Mars on my skin! Must have missed that one. Oh well. Next time.

And what's the difference between this and the alignment on 12/21/2012 which only happens every 26,000 years or some redonculous number like that?

EDIT: Let me answer my own question: This thread is about planetary alignments. 12/21/12 is a Galactic alignment. Something much more note worthy, because the Maya predicted the exact date a long with a prediction that people or a person will come from the sky on the date. Even a book published in 1998 could only predict the Galactic Alignment to "2012-era" ! Not even an exact date in 1998, but the Maya predicted it thousands of years ago? WTF?

If you can provide the evidence from a reputable source that what you assert is true, I would be very interested in hearing it. Please give links.

garbonzo, there is no such thing as the so-called Galactic Alignment. It is a fiction. Captain Kremmen is saying much the same thing, but it too polite to be direct (or delightfully devious, leading you to expose your ignorance).
