New information comes from NASA. Our planet will experience total darkness for 15 days in November 2016 starting from November 15 to November 29.
NASA confirms that this phenomenon was in the pipeline for a long period and the astronomers from NASA have informed that the world will experience a strange event from November 15 at 3:00 am until November 30, 4:45 pm.
Charles Bolden , the head of NASA, believe this blackout is the result of an astronomical event between Venus and Jupiter. He issued a 1000 page document which explains the event in detail to the White House.
He explains that Venus and Jupiter will be very closely engaged and they will be separated by a mere 1 degree. Venus will surpass to the south-west of Jupiter which results in Venus shining 10 times brighter than Jupiter and this light will heat up the gases in Jupiter causing a reaction. This reaction will release a never before seen amount of hydrogen into the space which will make contact with sun at around 2:50 am.
When hydrogen makes contact with sun it will cause a massive explosion on the sun’s surface and it will have an effect on the temperature which increases to 9,000 degrees kelvin in no time.
The sun will take at least 14 days to restore its normal temperature .Meanwhile, the light from sun will be much dimmer than normal and people will experience the change only after 2:58 am on November 15th.
“We do not expect any major effects from the Blackout event. The only effect this event will have on Earth is an increase of 6 – 8 degrees in temperature. the polar cap will be mostly affected by this. No one should worry much. This event would be similar to what Alaskans experience in the winter”. Bolden said.
