May 11, 2016 - Supermoon
The channel of Mercury in front of a sun, called a Mercury transit, was witnessed by a universe final May 9. But right after a astronomical show, a internet was flooded about prophecies claiming that a transformation is a pointer of a biblical aplocalypse. It got so heated that NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Twitter pages, @asteroidwatch, only had to pronounce adult and to put a stop to a swindling theories observant it’s a ‘hoax’.

Mercury transformation occurs 13 times any century, a final transformation happened in 2006. Some purported eremite groups including a Youtube Channel called The Prophetico as a pointer of a Biblical apocalypse, as settled in a news by a Huffington Post.
These groups even expelled videos of a purported astronomical anomalies, gaining some-more than 110,000 views as of May 11. The channel related a new moon and supermoon cycle with a transit, observant this transformation of astronomical bodies could meant finish of a world.
An research of a planet’s positions has also been given suspicion during how it could lead to Armageddon.
“The moon itself has been incited into a sickle, so literally branch Orion’s bar into a mace as he strikes a lion’s whelp along a impertinence during a transit” pronounced a channel.
They also pronounced that a astronomical physique could be knocked off of a circuit that will afterwards interrupt a healthy transformation of moons and planets in a solar system.
“If not now could we declare a large impact that knocks it out of circuit altogether?” they added.
Sadly a video from a Youtube channel was rarely sensationalized, appearing in amicable media and several internet sites. Express UK instituted a consult to find out how many people indeed trust in a Armageddon fiasco.
But NASA was discerning to encourage a open that there’s no Armageddon or doom’s day looming. NASA’s JPL and one of a central Twitter handles, @asteroidwatch, can't reason their overpower any longer. That’s because when asked about a “Biblical prophecy” a group soon replied “Sounds like another hoax. Mercury transits take place about 13 times any century. Last one was 2006”.
