March 8, 2016: Total Solar Eclipse; Asteroid passing on SAME DAY

Numbers of internet doomsday prophecies are talking about something BIG on 8th March 2016 as three events are set for the same day; Solar eclipse, Supermoon and asteroid 2013 TX68 close to the Earth.

Total Solar Eclipse March 8, 2016 – March 9, 2016

Total solar eclipse has been scheduled for late Tuesday (March 8) and early Wednesday (March 9). Total solar eclipse will begin in the Indian Ocean and pass through Indonesia before ending in the northern Pacific Ocean.

The total solar eclipse will occur in more than 35% area of Indonesia. People in northern Australia and parts of South and East Asia will have partial eclipses.

The total eclipse will occur longest (around three minutes) in Maba, a small town in the Maluku Islands of Indonesia.

The total solar eclipse of March 2016 is the only total eclipse of the sun this year. Apart from that, Annular solar eclipse will occur on September 1, 2016. September 2016 annular eclipse will be visible over most of Africa, the southern Arabian Peninsula, and much of the Indian Ocean.

Next total solar eclipse will be in United States on Monday, August 21, 2017. The 2017 total solar eclipse will be the first total solar eclipse visible from the United States since 1991 (visible only from part of Hawaii) and also first total solar eclipse of 21st century in the country.

During a total solar eclipse, the moon casts its shadow upon Earth's surface where all sunlight is blocked out. 

Asteroid 2013 TX68 to pass close to Earth on March 8, 2016

NASA changed the day of Asteroid pass from March 5 to March 8, 2016. Asteroid 2013 TX68 will fly by roughly 3 million miles (5 million kilometer) from our planet. NASA has confirmed that the asteroid poses no threat to Earth.

Not only that, NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California has determined that 2013 TX68 cannot impact Earth over the next century.

Prophecies also claim that the super moon will line up with the sun to create a larger than average effect on earth's oceans causing increased tidal activity. If you remember, Doomsayers claimed severe natural disasters with the occurrence of supermoon in 2013. And as usual, it didn't happen.

The YouTube video explains as why we don't have a total solar eclipse every month.
