The cosmic alignment of five planets can be more dangerous than people think.
Five planets – Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter – are visible in the night sky at the moment for the first time in a decade.
Amateur stargazers, UFO hunters and so-called “truthers” have taken to the internet to warn the spectacular concurrence fulfils and ancient prophecy and heralds the coming End of Days.
They have predicted the astral alignment could magnify the gravitational pull of planets and trigger earthquakes, tidal waves – and even an apocalyptic polar shift – on Earth.
Doomsdayers – such as the “Truthernews” website – claim that the lunar calendar, the rare planetary alignment and “events in the news” suggested the long-fabled “Three Days of Darkness” were about to happen.
Marie Julie Jahenny prophesied that the world will be plunged into three days of darkness before Armageddon. Jahenny – known as the “Breton Stigmatist” – was a Frenchwoman who died in 1941.
She predicted numerous disasters that would befall France and the rest of the world – including earthquakes, plagues and failed harvests – as well as the coming of the Antichrist.
The mystic warned all hell would break loose at the Three Days of Darkness with demons killing anyone who leaves the house.
