Few days back there was an article called, "NASA confirms that Earth will experience total darkness for 15 days". Later, it was known that the news was written by a satirical news called huzlers.com and was just a hoax. Nonetheless, its still quite a good read if you see it as science fiction!
Anyway, this news is a hoax as cleared by Huffington Post. So the moral of the story is: Don't believe everything on the Internet.
This went viral and later busted as hoax news.
The news was first written by a satirical news portal, Huzlers.com.
It's unbelievable that the hoax spread fast.
