You’ve probably seen this story circling the internet and wondered if it’s true. Either you’ve seen someone extremely naive and gullible share it on Facebook or perhaps your friends have been panicking about it on Twitter. The gist of the story is that in November 2015 Earth will experience 15 days of total darkness. For 15 days, apparently, there will be absolutely no sunlight and we’ll just have to live in complete darkness like moles. This story has originally been posted on the website Newswatch33.com. This phenomenon has been explained in a “highly scientific way” by stating it’s caused by an astronomical event between Venus and Jupiter that hasn’t occurred in 1 million years. What kind of event? We don’t know. But I’m guessing it’s a party, the dress code is “black tie optional” and we’re all invited.
To further assure us that the “November Blackout” will happen, they’ve also stated that the head of NASA wrote a 1000 page document to explain it to the White House. You know, because if this was to actually happen only the White House would want to know, so that they could storm in and save the day, just like they do in every apocalypse movie.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, that piece of news is a hoax. There will be no “November Blackout” or “15 Days of Darkness” or anything of that sort. The website that started the rumor is famous for posting shocking and fake news and they are not accountable for the truth of any news. However, feel free to organize a blackout party and have a blast. Bring on the neon light up bracelets and have a rave if you wish. There’s nothing stopping you.
Thanks for reading! And don’t believe in hoax news, folks!
