Are total solar eclipses possible on other planets?

Star Trek Into Darkness

But that hasn't stopped a cadre of conspiracy theorists from pushing the claim that the solar eclipse is a portent for the end of times.

What is Nibiru or Plane X Conspiracy Theory?

Meade and other conspiracy theorists invoke verses from the Book of Isaiah when claiming this month's eclipse is a portent. The author, however, has been inconsistent when it comes to the time of the Earth's destruction.

As per the conspiracy theorists, when this enormous outsider world collides with Earth, it will blind mankind.

"Unfortunately, I think some people want the world to end because then they're proven right", he said.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will witness an eclipse of the sun for the first time in 99 years, where Moon will pass in front of the sun, casting darkness across swathes of the Earth's surface.

Meade earlier said that Nibiru will mark the end of Earth in October, but now he has fixed his mind on September, only until he changes his mind again.

Even though there's a severe lack of evidence behind the sensational claims - with even Nasa labelling it as an "internet hoax" - many people are still adamant it is real.

Legislature OKs Agency Oversight That Forced Special Session
The House's slower approach has led to frustration for some Republicans who are supportive of Abbott's special session agenda. The House and Senate may be headed for a stalemate over how to improve the state's beleaguered public school finance system.

As warned by Christian numerologist David Meade, the likelihood that the mysterious and puzzling planet "Nibiru" to crash into Earth next month is high and this month's solar eclipse will be the indication of the judgment day of earth. Because of the size of the moon and its distance from both the sun and the earth, the moon is able to completely cover the sun, so we are able to see total solar eclipses.

Meade wrote a book called "Planet X - The 2017 Arrival" in which he wrote that the planet would fly by Earth closely or devastate it. According to the believers, Solar Eclipse on August 21 will serve as a warning for the coming devastation. The Stars of Heaven and their constellations will stop showing their light.

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.

According to Meade, this passage is linked to what he has dubbed the "33 Convergence", where a strand of coincidences all includes the number 33.

Meade added: "The Moon involved is called a black moon".

"This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003 but, when nothing happened, the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 - hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012". This rare occurrence of the cosmic event is crossing the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the US after 99 years, with last such a sight observed in 1918.

"This indeed is an fantastic omen and a frightful sign", according to Meade.
