There have been a lot of reports about the changes our planet Earth could endure in the months and years to come but many of them didn’t really pan out, making us question about everything that we read on the internet.
But, this time NASA confirms what has recently been circling the web – our planet Earth will experience total darkens for about 15 days in November 2017, which will start from November 15 to November 29.
NASA reports that this strange experience was expected to happen but they didn’t know exactly when it will happen. Upon some more detailed examination the astronomers from NASA confirmed that the phenomenon will start on November 15 at 3:00 am and that it will most likely last until November 30, 4:45 pm.
According to some experts, this blackout will be caused by an astronomical event between the planets Jupiter and Venus. There was even a detailed 1000 pages document which was written by Charles Bolden, head of NASA, explaining the event to officials at the White House.
According to that period, during this specific period, the planets Jupiter and Venus will come in close proximity of each other and will be separated by just 1 degree. The planet Venus will move to the south-west of Jupiter and as a result of that, it will shine 10 times brighter then Jupiter. The bright light of the planet Venus will heat up the gases in Jupiter causing a reaction which will release an absurdly high amount of hydrogen into the space. Then, this reaction will come in contact with out Sun at 2:50 am on November 15th.
Once the hydrogen reaches the Sun, a massive explosion is also bound to occur on the surface of the Sun, in that way increasing the temperature to more than 9000 degrees. This whole process will generate so much heat that the Sun will change its color into a bluish shade. After this happens, the Sun will need a minimum of 14 days in order to restore its normal color, as well as temperature.
As a result of this strange phenomenon, the light of the Sun will be seen much dimmer from the Earth and hence the 15-day blackout NASA is talking about will happen.
Bolden said the following:
“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.”
