October 17 2008 , A Normal day.. Well think again!
According to many reports and scientific research it may have the sun rise continuously for 36 hrs (1.5 days). During this time the US countries will be dark for 1.5 days. Strange but might be true.
It will convert 3 days into 2 big days. It will happen once in 2400 yrs.
According to Wiki Oct 17 has always been eventful (WIKI)
I feel it is a hoax. I never saw the 27th August Moon Mars (Double Moon).
For it to happen just for the day, the Earth would need to slow down its rate of spin. Not possible for a body as massive as the Earth, without destroying itself as the energy from angular momentum changes so abruptly.
Well whatever will happen I will love to witness as it happens once in 24oo yrs ;we have already seen one happen some 2400 yr back ......
