NASA Confirms Earth Will Experience 6 Days of Total Darkness in December 2014!
Hoax or Fact:
The shocking story that went viral online states that people on Earth will experience 6 Days of Total Darkness in December 2014 and that NASA has confirmed it. No, it isn't a fact!
The claim originated from an article on website Huzlers.com published on 24 October 2014 with the same title. Accordingly, earth will experience 6 days of almost complete darkness from 16th to 22nd of December 2014. It is said that during the 'three days' (note the error), world will remain without sunlight because of a solar storm that will block 90% sunlight.
Huzlers is a satirical website that publishes fake stories with sensational headlines, like Ebola victims in African village "Rise from the Dead". Their about information discloses the same, "Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satirical entertainment to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief."
NASA has not confirmed that the earth will be in darkness for six days in December 2014. But unfortunately, thousands of people have been duped with the fake news article. So like always, we advise you to check the validity of sources before trusting and sharing them with others.
