Thank you for supporting this wiki project
Arcturus is the brightest star of B÷otes constellation. Near it we find Muphrid, Eta Bo÷tis. Although we see stars between Arcturus and Muphrid, Arcturus is in fact its closest stellar neighbor, and their distances to the Sun are very similar.

This picture was taken in May 2009, from the center of a light polluted city using 70 subframes of 5 seconds each. Canon EOS 450d (Rebel XTi) was the camera used with 55mm lens at F:5.6.

B"HTake heart. If you check the 2012 date with the Hebrew date of that time it could be much later, for instance my slaceur birth day is Nov 19. My hebrew birth date is Kislev 13, which this year is about a month later.So be optomistic and stay with the Hebrew calender which will probably give you longer life.If I am wrong and the Mayan calender is correct and the world ends, I will graciously issue a public apology to all.Bone's is trying to scare the world by not using his Hebrew Heritage.Shavuah Tov for many years to come.

Are people atlaulcy getting scared because of the Elenin Comet and what they think it might bring or have they been brain-washed by one of Holywood's 2012 movies produced simply to make lots of money? It was very interesting what some people did before the Y2K scare when computers were supposed to crash and we all would be out of water and unable to flush our toilets. They went out and bought land in the east mountains outside of Albuquerque. Well, if the world was going to end or be drastically different in the year 2,000 would there be any place to run to or any place that would not be affected? And yes, I am aware that the year 2,000 was based on the Gregorian man-made calendar, unlike the Mayan calendar based on earth seasons. What's interesting is that so many books of pure speculation have been written about 2012, yet none of them have bothered to consult the Mayans themselves about the prophecy. Ask a Mayan elder and you will find that the prophecy does not mean the end of the world, but rather the end of an age of consciousness. However, if one chooses to jump into Hollywood fear, that is one's choice.
