According to Sumerian cuneiform stone tablets and writings that are 6,000 years old, Nibiru is known as the Planet of the crossing. Nibiru is also believed to be what Astronomers call Planet X (the unknown 10th planet exerting forces in our solar system on our outer planets).
According to ancient Sumerian literature, the celestial object Nibiru travels once around our Sun every 3,600 years. It's orbit crosses the orbital path of Earth which means it's subject to causing catastrophic weather-related events on Earth. Nibiru is the home of the Sumerian Gods who are called the Anunnaki, which is translated to mean "those who from heaven to earth came".
Famous author and linguist of many ancient languages, Zecharia Sitchin, refers to Nibiru as The 12th Planet. According to translations of ancient cuneiform writing, the Sumerians counted all of our 9 Solar System planets, plus counted the Sun and Moon as planets 10 and 11, and leaving Nibiru as the 12th Planet (home of the Gods).
Jason Martell has also contributed large amounts of time and travel on the subject of Nibiru and the Alien Astronaut Theory as well. He runs some very impressive websites which are loaded with large amounts of information pertaining to the Sumerian culture. Jason also has the largest Sumerian Artifact gallery on the internet available for public viewing.
There is also a spy-like PC game called "NiBiRu: Age Of Secrets" which is based on German sourced 12th Planet information, but is twisted a little to give more credit to the Mayan Civilization Secrets.

(Best example is always in the form of a question)
When will the planet Nibiru be crossing Earth's orbit again?
Some people believe the answer is roughly... (3600 year orbit of Nibiru) - (The age of Christ at his death 33.5) = 3566 (+ or - 6 months).
The next crossing that will most likely cause global death to living creatures on Earth is roughly... ((The age of Christ at his death 33.5) / (The number of celestial objects 12)) x (3600 year orbit of Nibiru) = 10050
(Since the answer is really not known, the above example is for entertainment purposes only)
Nibiru: this name is common through the whole internet. However, this name is misunderstood by a lot of people. Nibiru is being indentified as a big planet that should be the home of the ancient (Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian, Mesopotamian, Assyrian and Magian)Gods, but Nibiru also has a second name that gives more detail of it's origin. That name is Nib-ru.more...
A sumerian myth about Nibru is 'Enlil and the E-Kur'. Here is a small sample of the myth's translation: "Enlil, when you marked out the holy settlements, you also built Nibru, your own city." The city of the sumerian god Enlil(Ellil) here is called Nibru. This city is known today as Nippur and this name has striking similarity to the name Nibru. Also the Temple of Enlil is, or was, in Nippur.
According to the sumerian Flood myth, Enlil wanted to flood the people because he could not sleep. So he planned this flood and told the other gods not to tell anybody about this. Enki(the wise-one, the al-knowing one) dit not want his creation (men) to die for this. Before the flood, the myth says that the Gods depart from the earth.
Beside the myth, we can understand that the gods are creatures, just like us. And also Enlil should leave earth, because his city Nibru would be flooded. Not a Planet.
Another sign to the city Nibru, is the bond, Duranki. Dur-an-ki is sumerian for; “The Bond between Heaven and Earth”. Dur: a Bond between somethings, An: Heaven and Ki: Earth, Making Duranki. What has this to do with Nibiru? W...
