Solar eclipse 2017: 11 cool things to know about the moon

Ученые подтвердили существование девятой планеты

Ученые подтвердили существование девятой планеты

As his theory goes the solar eclipse of this month would indicate whether this unknown planet would collide with Earth or not. During this period, Moon will get ahead of the sun, in front of it, which will cast a complete darkness across bandages of the Earth's surface.

Meade told a news portal this month, "The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017, is a major - huge - harbinger".

Diameter-wise, the sun is about 400 times the size of the moon, and the distance of the moon from the sun is about 400 times the distance of the moon from the earth.

Speaking about a planet called Nibiru, Meade explained how it will appear in the skies on September 23.

What is Nibiru or Plane X Conspiracy Theory?

Those outside the "path of totality" will see a partial eclipse. This rare occurrence of the cosmic event is crossing the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the USA after 99 years, with last such a sight observed in 1918.

While America is preparing to witness the much excited Great American Total Solar Eclipse, on the other hand, conspiracy theorists are buzzing with incoming "hidden planet". The result was the creation of the asteroid belt and planet Earth. So what is this "it"? NASA confirmed the existence of a hypothetical new Planet X deep in space in the solar system. Nibiru is based on the myth of Babylonian and Sumerian mythology.

David Meade is the conspiracy theorist who came up with this hypothesis.

He further added: "When the eclipse begins on August 21, the sunrise will be dark, just as Isaiah predicts".

What is the Date of Apocalypse?

Though there is no reliable evidence about this celestial crash, David Meade alongside many other conspiracy theorists has claimed that bible passages and the existence of the solar eclipse completely promotes the idea that the end of the earth is around the corner and next month, it will be annihilated.

If the latest prediction of the conspiracy theorists is to be believed, we all are going to be dead in next 45 days as earth will be colliding with a mysterious alien planet "Nibiru".

The "Nibiru Cataclysm" movement claims the eclipse heralds the end of the world and the arrival of Nibiru.

Before you hit the panic button, you must read the about the threat Nibiru on the NASA website (it is comforting).

"This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003 but, when nothing happened, the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 - hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012".

Other scientists have dismissed the claims as nonsense, saying many have been linking eclipses to apocalypses since the dawn of civilisation just because of the astounding nature of the phenomenon.
