A viral video which is circulating on Twitter and Facebook, shows a planetary object or a moon rotating next to a circular rainbow. Throughout the video, we can hear people scream in terror. A Twitter user posted the viral video and claimed it is from Uttar Pradesh along with Gujarati and Hindi texts translated, “Today in the skies of Iraq, strange structures were seen and people started crying for fear that this was the beginning of the end of the world!
The same clip was uploaded on YouTube in 2017 however, there are no screams in the background. This suggests that the voices of people panicking were superimposed to the clip. According to the title, the video shows a ‘mysterious planet Nibiru.’ However, this is not an actual event but related to a popular doomsday theory debunked by NASA in 2017.
A 2017 article from The Telegraph says, “Planet X, or Nibiru, refers to a mythological planet in our solar system that will supposedly crash into Earth and wipe out the human race, however it has been consistently dismissed by Nasa and other experts as an internet hoax.”
NASA released an article around the conspiracy theories in 2012. “The biggest missing link in the doomsday prophecy is Nibiru itself. Because no giant, rogue planet has been found in the outer solar system to play the role of Nibiru…” reads the article.
