Already covered here on ATS once again this is a hoax,, already decided. Hoax.
Same as Brazillian National T.V broadcast the "Brazil Ufo" has alreaady beeen declared HOAX,, when are these New Stations gonna,, get real? Stop being so guilliable??? please ,,,
Oh Jerusalem Video,, HOAX so don't even bother.
In the Star Wars saga, George Lucas imagined a world where twin suns rose and fell in the horizon. Looks like his vision may not be so far-fetched. Astrophysicists say that Betelgeuse, the red super-giant that is the ninth brightest star in the sky, is losing mass—an indication of gravitational collapse. Brad Carter, a senior lecturer of physics at the University of Southern Queensland, explained to news.com.au that the star is essentially running out of the fuel at its core. “This fuel keeps Betelgeuse shining and supported. When this fuel runs out the star will literally collapse in upon itself and it will do so very quickly,” he said. The subsequent explosion will appear tens of millions of times brighter than the sun, meaning 24-hours of light on Earth. (More on Time.com: Voyager 1 Nears Edge of Solar System.) “It goes bang, it explodes, it lights up," Carter said. "We'll have incredible brightness for a brief period of time for a couple of weeks and then over the coming months it begins to fade and then eventually it will be very hard to see at all.” And while the celestial event could take place before the end of 2012, it may not occur for a million years. As you'd expect, plenty of folks interpret the impending supernova as a sign of the Apocalypse. (Coincidentally, the Mayan calendar predicts Armageddon in 2012, and the word "Betelgeuse" has strong associations with the devil.) But Carter dismisses the doomsayers, pointing out that the implosion will shower the earth with tiny particles called neutrinos that are absolutely harmless. “They will flood through the Earth and bizarrely enough, even though the supernova we see visually will light up the night sky, 99 per cent of the energy in the supernova is released in these particles that will come through our bodies and through the Earth with absolutely no harm whatsoever.”
It sounds like science fiction, but a group of astronomers out of Australia predict it will happen in 2012. The topic has only further fueled talk of an apocalypse. Picture it: sunset and sunrise at the same time. The scenario plays out in "Star Wars," and now astronomers predict it will happen on Earth next year, the final year of the Mayan calendar and the year some believe the world will end. "That would be kind of crazy," one Jacksonville sky gazer said. "I'd be really stoked," another said. "Personally, I don't believe any of the theories," one person said. "I just think some Mayan got sick of writing calendars on a wall." Not everyone is buying the prediction, so the Museum of Science and History is trying separate science fact from fiction. "This whole 2012 thing has really escalated primarily because of that Hollywood movie that came out a year ago," said Thomas Webber, who works at MOSH. Webber said it's a little bit of both fact and fiction. Betelgeuse is a giant red star that is essentially dying. "Stars burn fuel in their core by nuclear fusion, and eventually it will get to the point where it cannot burn anymore," Webber said. At this point, Webber said, Betelgeuse will collapse and then explode. The event is called a supernova. Webber said it will be bright enough to light up the night sky, like a second sun. Scientists said particles from the star will shower the Earth. "It's not going to harm us in any way, and it certainly will not be as bright as our sun," Webber said. But it will be pretty awe-inspiring whenever it does happen, Webber said. He said it may or may not occur in 2012, and if it does, it certainly has nothing to do with the end of the world. Betelgeuse is 640 light years away, so if people do see this supernova in 2012, that means it really happened 639 years ago, Webber said. There's no way to predict exactly when it will be visible to people on planet Earth, but be assured of one thing: It will be a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Wow. Really? That is one heck of an optical illusion! WTF is that? When is the event again? March '11 May '11 October '11 or December '12???
Edit to add: How do we know this is a reputable Chinese news station?
It could be just as hoaxish as the magnetic traffic women.edit on 2-3-2011 by packinupngoin because: (no reason given)edit on 2-3-2011 by packinupngoin because: (no reason given)
