Earlier this month, Meade in a statement to The Daily Star said that "The Great American Eclipse of 21st August 2017, is a major - massive - harbinger". "The Rising Sun will be pitch-black, and the Moon will not give its light" - Meade, and other theorists argued that the doomsday of Earth will take place next month, on 23rd September.
With regard to humanity's fascination with solar eclipses, Stojkovic adds, "Our sun is directly related to all forms of life on Earth, so its disappearance, even for a few minutes, was historically associated with some dire predictions - like natural catastrophes, big wars, deaths of kings, etc". As the moon travels along in space, its shadow moves across the Earth's surface, and areas that fall under the darkest shadow observe a total eclipse, while areas that lie under the partial shadow observe a partial eclipse.
This is according to NASA scientists who can predict the movement of our solar system's bodies so precisely that they know to the minute when our moon will pass in front of the sun later this month. 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.
Well, NASA did nothing to quell the conspiracy theories by calling it "Planet X" as well as "Planet 9".
Called the Great American Eclipse, this would be a once-in-a-lifetime celestial spectacle.
Meade wrote a book called "Planet X - The 2017 Arrival" in which he wrote that the planet would fly by Earth closely or devastate it. So what is this "it"? NASA has refused to acknowledge the unseen planet Nibiru. Planet X is no love child of Professor X and Captain Planet, please do not get into comics zone.
"Astronomy-inspired apocalyptic conspiracy theories hitch their wagon to whatever is happening in astronomy this year", astronomer Michael Brown from Monash University in Australia tells ScienceAlert.
The stories of Nibiru causing apocalypse has been mostly brushed aside as a mythical, fascinating story. The conspiracy theorists think that the gravitational effect of Nibiru a rouge planet disturbed the orbits of other planets centuries ago. They said it could have a mass about 10 times that of Earth and orbit about 20 times further from the sun than Neptune, taking a whopping 10,000 and 20,000 Earth years to make one full orbit around the sun.
What is the Date of Apocalypse?Meade and other doomsayers believing in Nibiru conspiracy theory say the earth is indeed coming to an end, 33 days after the American Solar Eclipse. The changes would bring huge alterations in the climate of Earth. The author, however, has been inconsistent when it comes to the time of the Earth's destruction. It reads: "Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than four billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat".
Except her cataclysmic prediction was actually slated for 2003.
