NASA put out an ALERT this this week confirming that the world will experience total darkness between December 16 – December 23, 2015. NASA Director Charles Bolden released an emergency preparedness speech in the video below. He encourages us all to prepare for any “attacks” that may effect our communities during this time. Considering the current rioting, violence and shootings that are already occurring, he warns that the 8 days of darkness will only intensify the disorder.
The world will remain dark for these 8 days, completely void of sunlight, due to a solar storm which will cause dust and space debris to block 90% of the sun. Bolden urges American’s to remain calm as we experience the largest solar storm our solar system has seen in over 250 years.
Reporters interviewed people and some of their responses were disturbing. One man said he was ready: “We gonna be purgin’ my n*gga. Eight days of darkness means 8 days of ‘turnt up fam.’ Betchu I get me a big screen TV before Christmas. My ass is Christmas lootin’.”
Despite these 8 days of darkness, officials say they do not expect Earth to experience any major problems, except for cell phone disruption. However, they do encourage you to listen to the emergency preparedness video below and be proactive for any possible occurrence. “We will solely rely on artificial light for the entire 8 days,” says NASA scientist Earl Godoy. “Stocking up on light bulbs, flashlights, water and food would be the best way to start preparing.”
