Our Moon: A Large Crystal-Like Ball Covered in Sand

Shabbos evening I was looking at the Moon in the South East Sky and to me it look Full. Each month our Moon is visual 28 or 29 days (more approximately 27.3 days). Each month we go from a Full Moon to a Sliver of a Moon and then to a Full Moon once again, repeating this process throughout the year. The Moon's orbit is for 354 days. The Sun's reflection on the Moon is what gives us this visual. However Earth's orbit around the Sun is 365.256 days. How does one correlate this?

Most years can have four full moons, but this year there is five)

I went to their website. Why don't they have anything about Nibiru? They certainly have the equipment to do so. They see Mars..and other celestial bodies. By-the-way, there is a lot of talk and concern regarding the halos seen around the sun all over the world. There is a lot of volcanic ash and smoke from that massive fire in Canada being spewed into the environment. Maybe this has something to do with this halo. I don't know what to think. I know Hashem rules the world. Of this I am certain. All the other, what is one to think?

Anonymous, I guess you mean you went to the Slooh website (there are a couple of them). Well Mr Paul Cox (in theCanary Islands Observatory) did mention "another sun" possibly Nibiru in one of his videos. Yes, its not on that site, its to be found in Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh7n5pWySuc. However it may have put him in hot water with NASA. They don't want anyone disclosing anything about Nibiru. Only the so-called backyard astronomers are doing anything about Nibiru.

You're right! I was just coming to show you what I found. It's coming straight from Paul Cox mouth and it doesn't sound like a joke to me. BTW, I think it's a fellow Yid who posted the video..
