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.
Adding more to the fiction, it was reported that the event will be a result of a highly complicated astronomical phenomenon that will engage Venus and Jupiter, and cause Venus to shine many times brighter than its usual and cause a high increase in temperature.
And that's not all! It went on to say that the sun would try to bring down the temperature by apparently emitting waves of heat from its core, and that would turn the sun's color to a dim blue! Now that's some high-class bullshit!
