Another week and another ‘world ending’ event is on the horizon. This time a ‘rogue planet’ has been captured on film and it has sent conspiracy theorists into overdirve.
It’s all about a planet called Nibiru, or planet X as it is otherwise known. Those who are big on conspiracies reckon that Nibiru is currently orbiting at the edge of our solar system. The ‘Nibarau Cataclysm‘ is believed to be a collision between Earth and a large planetary object that will happen at some point this century.
The latest video (found at the bottom of the page) posted to YouTube by Melissa Huffman has fuelled speculation further. The video shows a bright circular shape poking out above the sunset, and it wasn’t long before people started claiming it to be Nibiru.
One person wrote ‘It’s definitely Nibiru. It’s time to freak out the makers are coming.’ Another added, ‘Me and many folk with me have been waiting for this to show up for years. Ancient records state that once The Destroyer is ‘visible to the world’, we have 40 days to prepare.’
40 days – it could be worse we guess.
Don’t panic though guys. It’s probably all a load of rubbish. Well, if we believe NASA that is. They have said:
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.”
So what is this planet that the woman caught on film? The best and most rational explanation that people are sharing is this:
‘It’s a tropospheric reflection created by ice crystals (a solar mirage). ‘The planet you think you see is the sun…that super bright area below it is the sunlight being scattered by ice crystals in the clouds. There is not a planet there. This is a known atmospheric phenomenon – though it is quite rare.’
Still, it makes for a pretty cool video – take a look
So there we have it, it’s either an internet hoax or it’s just the sun.
