According to NASA, each December, the Earth and the Sun align at the approximate center of the Milky Way Galaxy but that is an annual event of no consequence. At the same time, NASA has advised people not to believe in the rumours and the fictional and fake stuff flying around through cyberspace, TV and the movies, as it is not based on science.
"Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth in 2012, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist. Eris is real, but it is a dwarf planet similar to Pluto that will remain in the outer solar system; the closest it can come to Earth is about 4 billion miles," clarifies NASA.
