Circulating message claims that NASA has predicted a total blackout of the planet for a three-day period in December. The original version claimed that during the blackout, the universe will be aligned and the Earth will shift into another dimension. A later version claims that the three days of darkness will be caused by a solar storm.

Brief Analysis

The claims in the message are fanciful nonsense with no truth to them whatsoever. NASA has made no such prediction. Nor has any other credible scientific entity.


NASA confirms that the 3 days of darkness will take place this year in the days 21, 22 and 23 December. The land will remain during these three days without sun, night ie in total darkness due to a solar storm

This is the head of NASA Charles Bolden who made ​​the announcement and asked everyone to remain calm. This will be the product of a solar storm, the largest in the last 50 years for a period of 72 hours. Note that in the responses of Light Beings to questions Monique Mathieu by his members “From Heaven to Earth,” she wrote: “The three days of darkness will actually take place. This will be an extremely difficult time for humanity.

The plunge into total darkness for three days Earth, this is the incredible event announced for centuries by different traditions and religions and supposed support the transformation of the Earth in our time.


On 21st of December the Earth will enter a still ring called Photonic belt at 1:00 AM. Colombian time. Where our planet will go off completely and will last 3 days of darkness. NASA confirmed it December 5th 2012.It is said that when it is completely dark you will feel cold and there will be flashes of lights, ”Nothing is going to happen, it’s just an extraordinary phenomenon that happens every 11 million years.”

It is recommended to remain in your house as power fails or electronic devices. 3 days of darkness will pass.

This is what the Mayan calendar was referring. A planetary alignment. NOT the end of the world.


Subject: NASA predicts total blackout on 23-25 Dec 2012 during alignment of Universe.

US scientists predict Universe change, total blackout of planet for 3 days from Dec 23 2012.

It is not the end of the world, it is an alignment of the Universe, where the Sun and the earth will align for the
first time. The earth will shift from the current third dimension to zero dimension, then shift to the forth
dimension. During this transition, the entire Universe will face a big change, and we will see a entire brand new

The 3 days blackout is predicted to happen on Dec 23, 24, 25….during this time, staying calm is most important, hug
each other, pray pray pray, sleep for 3 nights…and those who survive will face a brand new world….for those not
prepared, many will die because of fear. Be happy, enjoy every moment now. Don’t worry, pray to God everyday. There
is a lot of talk about what will happen in 2012, but many people don’t believe it, and don’t want to talk about it
for fear of creating fear and panic. We don’t know what will happen, but it is worth listening to USA’s NASA talk
about preparation.

Whether it’s true or not, better be prepared. No panic, stay calm, just pray. Remember to smile more, love more,
forgive more…everyday.

Better avoid traveling during December.


Detailed Analysis

According to this message, which is making its way around via social media and email, NASA has predicted that the earth will experience a total blackout for a three day time period in December.

The original version of the message claimed that the blackout was to occur in December 2012. More current versions specify the date as just “December” and do not mention the year.

The first version of the message claimed that during the blackout period, the universe would be aligned and the earth would shift into the zero dimension before shifting to its new home in the fourth dimension. The message recommended that during the blackout time, people stay calm and pray to prepare themselves for a brand new world. But, warned the message, many people who remained unprepared might die of fear during the blackout.
The updated version of the message blames the cause of the blackout on a large solar flare and claims that the impending blackout had been predicted for centuries by different religions and traditions.

Not surprisingly, the claims in both versions of the message are complete and utter nonsense. NASA has made no such prediction. Nor has any other credible scientific organization anywhere else in the world.

In what is apparently an utterly lame attempt to make its outlandish claims seem more believable, the message links to a video featuring NASA administrator Charles F. Bolden, Jr. In the video, Bolden does talk about family preparedness but makes no mention of planetary blackouts, universe alignments or even shifts to the zero dimension. The video can be seen in its original context on the NASA website.
on the NASA website.

And, for the record, there is no mention of such an impending blackout anywhere on the NASA website. Nor are there any reports about it on any credible news or scientific websites.

Perhaps whoever penned this piece of nonsense meant it as just a leg-pull. A bad science fiction writer perhaps? And a master of understatement? The messages predict a catastrophic, utterly world-changing event but ends with a casual warning to avoid travelling in December! But whatever its motivation, submissions and comments indicate that the message is nevertheless causing fear and anxiety among at least a few of the more wide-eyed among us.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
