WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Obama and NASA have confirmed that the Earth will experience 10 days of total darkness between November 25 and December 5, 2016. The event, according to NASA, hasn’t occurred in over 1 Million years.
Astronomers from NASA have indicated that the world will remain in complete darkness starting on November 25, 2016 at 5 a.m. GMT and will end on December 5, 2016 at 4:15 p.m. According to officials, the “Black Out” event will be caused by a large solar flare from the sun along with an astronomical event involving Venus and Jupiter. Charles Bolden, who was appointed to head of NASA by President Obama, issued a 1500 page document explaining the event to the White House.
According to the report, on October 21, 2016, Venus and Jupiter will engage in a close parallelism, only being separated by 1 degree. Venus will pass to the southwest of Jupiter, causing Venus to shine 10 times brighter than Jupiter. The light from Venus will heat up the gases on Jupiter causing a reaction.
The gaseous reaction will release an unprecedented amount of Hydrogen into Space. The Hydrogen gas will make contact with Earth’s sun at approximately 2:50 a.m. The amass amount of Hydrogen making contact with the sun will cause a massive explosion on the Sun’s surface. The explosions will cause the Sun’s surface temperature to increase to 9,000 degrees Kelvin in an instant. The sun will then attempt to cease the explosions by emitting heat from its core. The heat will cause the Sun to dim to a bluish color. Once the sun reaches the bluish color, it will take approximately 27 days to restore its normal surface temperature, returning its normal color to the Red Giant. While the sun’s surface is cooling, the light from the sun will be much dimmer. Because it takes anywhere from 7 to 8 and a half minutes depending on the Earth’s rotation for light from the sun to reach Earth, people will not know the event has happened until 5:08 a.m. on November 25th. Some areas of the world may experience brief moments of light for 7 to 8 minutes, but the Earth will then go back to complete darkness until the Sun’s surface temperature has been restored.
On October 13, 2016, President Barack Obama issued an executive order aimed at preparing the nation’s infrastructure for “extreme space weather events” that could potentially be powerful enough to wreak havoc on essential electrical grids:
Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.
