If you ask a 2012 doomsday proponent about the Google Sky Blank Spot you'll undoubtedly hear that it's an effort to cover-up the truth about Nibiru.This video explores the claim in detail while exploring the stitching error, the Digitized Sky Survey and obtaining data directly via telescope.

Note: As I flip through photographic plates you'll see the star HIP27803 move. Some explanation regarding this -- nothing in space is completely static and over large time scales even stars drift through the cosmos. The Space Velocity for HIP27803 (aka GI 221) is U: +000 km/s, V: -034 km/s, W: -021 km/s. Information about HIP27803 can be found in the SIMBAD database.

Note: The bright star visible at the bottom of the blank spot is HD39364 which is a 7.9 magnitude star. Information about this star including spectra can be found in the SIMBAD database.

Update: Aug 24 '11 -- The original video of which this is a response too has finally been removed from YouTube with the following message "This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content." Chalk up one for the good guys!
