HOAX - 'NASA Confirms 6 Days of Total Darkness'
A circulating report claims that NASA has confirmed that Earth will experience 6 days of total darkness between the 16th and the 22nd of December due to a solar storm.
According to Hoax-Slayer:
Brief AnalysisThe claims in the report are fanciful nonsense. NASA certainly has not confirmed the supposed 6 days of darkness. No such event will occur. The story comes via the fake-news 'satirical' site Huzlers. And Huzlers apparently adapted the fake story from an earlier hoax that claimed that there was to be a three-day blackout in December.
NASA Confirms Earth Will Experience 6 Days of Total Darkness in December 2014!
WORLDWIDE - NASA has confirmed that the Earth will experience 6 days of almost complete darkness and will happen from the dates Tuesday the 16 – Monday the 22 in December. The world will remain, during these three days, without sunlight due to a solar storm, which will cause dust and space debris to become plentiful and thus, block 90% sunlight.
