It’s a story that is repeated yearly. Remember comet Elinen and what a big story that was in the conspiracy world. There’s a new one every time you turn around, and 2016 WF9 is the first one of 2017. According to conspiracy theorists, this asteroid, which is supposedly a chunk of Nibiru, the mysterious planet that some say is encroaching on the solar system, will smash into the Earth, causing a doomsday scenario with mega tsunamis quite possibly leaving no one left standing. Predictably, NASA says it’s no big deal and no one should be worried. Below are some videos from people out there pushing that this is it. Should we even bother filing our taxes this year with the end just around the corner? Let us know what you think. Are you worried about 2016 WF9?
Conspiracy theorists are going nuts after some public images from NASA satellites showed some mysterious blue spheres in the area of the sun. There is all sorts of speculation going on as we speak, including everything from UFO’s to apocalyptic predictions. NASA is saying that this is all a silly coincidence. According to scientists there, it is quite common for cameras on their satellites to become “overloaded” causing images to be corrupted. When that happens, something like the blue spheres can show up on an image, causing a whole lot of speculation over nothing. Of course, many in conspiracy circles aren’t having none of that hokey explanation.
What do you think of the blue spheres? Do you buy NASA’s explanation, or are they covering up for something?
Claudia Haignere is the nation of France’s first female astronaut. In 2008, almost exactly ten years ago, she was in space when she apparently lost her mind. Blamed officially on an overdose of sleeping pills, her suicide attempt-turned-tyrade included an eerie message… Earth must be warned!
This is one of those stories that not a lot of people have heard about, but it’s absolutely true and right there to discover for those that know what to look for. That’s why we at Common Sense Conspiracy felt like the tenth anniversary of this interesting episode was a good time to put it in front of our loyal readers. Check out the video below that outlines the entire event in excellent detail.
The summer solstice isn’t unusual at all. It happens regularly. A strawberry moon is a very rare indeed, even rarer than the “blue moon” in the saying. Both of them falling on the same day is priceless, and extremely rare. So, it’s no surprise that there are some people in conspiracy circles pointing to this as something to be afraid of. There are references to Israel becoming a nation again in 1948 and the like. There is also the even more rare Cherry Moon made famous by Prince, who was apparently murdered by the Illuminati.
The reality: Common Sense Conspiracy loves a good conspiracy theory as much as anyone, but there’s nothing to the strawberry moon on the summer solstice. The reality is that this is a cosmic coincidence. But here’s some great videos showing what other people think. If we’re wrong, I guess we’ll see you in the afterlife.
The concept that there might be another quite gigantic planet past Pluto in our solar system is nothing new. Ever since Pluto was found, the search has been on in the astronomy community for the mystical Planet X. The unusual orbit of Neptune and Uranus was pointed to as classic evidence of another gravitational force out there in the far reaches of the solar system, but until this past week, it was only conjecture. Now, scientists have confirmed that the calculations are in and Planet X is real. And when Planet X is finally discovered, there won’t be any Pluto planet debates on this one. Planet X, according to the calculations, will be massive, perhaps even rivaling Jupiter for the title of largest planet.
Astronomers aren’t the only ones to warn of the existence of the ninth planet (Pluto got ousted, remember?). The legend of the dark planet Nibiru on a collision course with Earth from the far reaches of the solar system is a recurring conspiracy theory that won’t quit. As a matter of fact, we have seen serious talk about Nibiru on several different occasions over the last decade, each instance turning out to be nonsense. But now, it’s time for the Nibiru talk to heat up again as it seems almost like scientists are confirming that Nibiru exists after all.
Bear in mind that the undiscovered Planet X and Nibiru have some major differences. Planet X is definitely not getting any closer to Earth or the sun, and there is no reason to think that it would be likely that i could harbor life at that distance. But it is still interesting, and you can bet there will be plenty of people talking about it as the search is on.
Meet asteroid TB145, another large one that is going to cruise uncomfortably close to the Earth in a few days, sparking many in conspiracy circles to panic and say that this could be some sort of world-ending, catastrophic scenario. Here’s the reality. TB145 is the size of the Empire State Building, which sounds really menacing when you put it that way, but in astronomical terms is a speck of sand (not that, even). However, as we all know from Hollywood, it doesn’t take that much of an asteroid to make a really “deep impact” on Earth, so the concerns are legitimate. NASA says that TB145 will come within 300,000 miles of the Earth, meaning that even if you have a couple of thousand miles error, Earth should be safe and sound when the trick-or-treating ends. The video below shows more details. As always, the only real troubling thing here is that the asteroid was discovered so late in the game, indicating that if it were on a collision course with Earth, we would have had mere days to prepare, if there was, in fact, anything to be done.
The Cassini spacecraft returned images to Earth back in April that have scientists at NASA completely stumped. One of Saturn’s many icy moons, Tethys, was photographed by Cassini at close proximity, and the images revealed mysterious red arcs on the surface that as of yet there is no precedent or explanation before. NASA even alluded to the concept that the markings look like they were “spraypainted on” although it quickly pointed out that obviously that is not really the case. It’s amazing how these spacecrafts keep revealing new things day in and day out, and especially when you have a supposedly natural phenomenon here that no one can even begin to guess what the cause is. What do you think? Were the mysterious red arcs on Tethys a marking or message of some kind, or just some sort of work of nature in the far reaches of our solar system that we have yet to understand?
