But the path of totality for consecutive solar eclipses in the same Saros shifts across the Earth because the planet rotates for an additional 8 hours during the cycle's fractional day. But the news about this astronomical event was soon followed by the news of Earth will be facing an apocalypse soon.
Dr. Carlson explained the Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax.
He continues, the "author mentions several times how certain things are "facts" just because 'God said so on the Bible", and then goes on and on over the rapture'.
Nibiru is a hypothetical planet that is yet to be observed by scientists.
Nibiru is also sometimes referred to as Planet X - hypothesized orb, located on the edge of our planetary system.
The conspiracy theorist said that after the eclipse Nibiru will appear in the skies on September 23 before colliding with Earth. Nibiru is based on the myth of Babylonian and Sumerian mythology.
Despite the predictions of doomsday theories, the world would not end on December 21, 2012. "There is no factual basis for these claims".
On August 21, just before the alleged apocalypse occurs, United States sky-gazers will be treated to a total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast. Doomsday has been predicted in the year 2003, 2007, 2012, and 2015.
According to Meade, the Total Solar Eclipse is a sign that the world is nearing its end. This awesome solar eclipse has not occurred since 1918, which is 99 years or can be said three times of 33. More than half the planet will witness a once-in-a-lifetime event - dubbed the Great American Total Solar Eclipse - when the moon covers the sun and it causes a sudden drop in temperature, plunging the Earth into darkness.
Christian numerologist David Meade has once again warned of the possibility that the giant mysterious planet "Nibiru" is about to crash into Earth. NASA reports that the last total solar Eclipse in North America was February 26, 1979, but it was not as long as expected.
The scientific community does not agree Nibiru exists.
With lack of evidence, David, along with a number of other conspiracy theorists claim the Bible passages and solar eclipse's existence to support their statement of end of the world.
He pointed to warnings in the Old Testament book of Isaiah, Chapter 13, Verses 9 to 10, which reads, "See, the Day of the Lord is coming - a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger - to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it".
"The Stars of Heaven and their constellations will not show their light".
"This indeed is an fantastic omen and a frightful sign", according to Meade.
Diameter-wise, the sun is about 400 times the size of the moon, and the distance of the moon from the sun is about 400 times the distance of the moon from the earth.
