The math has been done. In fact, more math than you asked for has been done by myself and davidgrouchy.

My bad.
I'll knock that out right now.

Be back with the answer in a bit.

Back of the napkin math on volume of material from a moon with a +300 yard radius...

[excuse me for working in metric,
it's easier
I'll convert back to miles at the end]

average Lunar radius 1737 km

add 0.274 km


2.195270617503 ^19 m3
0.0010390311527 ^19 m3

10390311527000000 m3

and thats [color=gold] 10390311.527000000 km3

or in english...

2,492,768.300937 cubic miles


2.4 million cubic miles of material.

p.s. don't hate me if my math is wrong >.>

Sure, but what kind of area does that cover once it's a particulate in space? A lot of big chunks, dust?

My interest sure is piqued.

It really gets tough when you think about the moon orbiting the earth, ejecting material, orbiting the sun and what conditions would have to be just right for that material to even make it to earth.

It gives you appreciation for just how large the moon is, how far away, and how that scenario would be just as awe inspiring as the religious descriptions.

Your math is right. And, according to my calculations, it would only take, at the minimum, 37 cubic miles of lunar material to globally block out the Sun. 2.5 million cubic miles is obviously more than sufficient. If that's what the OP is getting at.

2.4 million cubic miles of material
0.00057 of the entire volume of the earth's atmosphere

this is greater than all the Neon, Helium, Methane, Krypton, Hydrogen, Nitrous oxide, Carbon monoxide, Xenon and Ozone combined.


It's less than the Carbon Dioxide alone, let alone the Argon, Oxygen, and Nitrogen.

In english that means
volcanic moon ash would become the 6th most comon particle in the atmosphere.

So, yes, I think that would make things pretty damn dark. And cold.

David Grouchy

78.08400% Nitrogen
20.94600% Oxygen
00.93400% Argon
00.03900% Carbon Dioxide
00.00182% Neon
00.00057% volcanic moon ash

Naw whare is mah cookie!

You rock like volcanic ash, thanks for taking the time to confirm the numbers.

Now, is it possible?

Also, Here's the cookie...

Sphere V= (4pir^3)/3

Vm+274 = (4 x pi x 1737.374^3)/3

Vm+274 = (4 X 3.141 x 5244208545Km)/3

Vm+274 = 21966889387Km.^3

Vm_now= (4 x pi x 1737.1^3)/3

Vm_now=(4 X 3.141 x 5241727755Km)/3


Vm+274 - Vm_now = Volume of lost 300yards

If this is accurate(I haven't checked it).....

This will be very approximate.
Given that it would have to blanket the entire planet in order to cause darkness for a full 3 days on a rotating Earth, that represents a surface area of about 518,102,000 km^2 (or half that if you don't want it to cover lower and higher latitudes).
The amount of material, then, depends on the thickness and density required to block the light from the sun. Let's say it's distributed over an altitude of 20 km. That's a volume of (4/3)*pi*2466057260 = 10,329,796,495 km^3.
At this thickness, and as a very rough estimate (it depends on particulate size), the minimum density required to block sunlight should be around 50,000 kg/km^3.
That gives a mass of 516,500,000,000,000 kg. That's 1/142,260,000 the mass of the Moon, and, given the density of the Moon, would represent a lunar volume of about 155 km^3 (37 cubic miles).

Ahh a factor of ...

10391508Km.^3 / 155Km.^3 = 67041 times


To Add.....

If this had of happened in the past, I would expect there to be evidence of it (globally) in the strata (stratum) layers of the Earth's crust.

S&F for a thought provoking thread.

a 3 days of darkness ( which involves the 12 hours of light during a 24 hour period...for 3 days running)

is meant to be an exact 'sign'...
the promised 3 'days' of no Sun light would have a most dramatic effect if the 3 day period were during
some festival or daytime related observance/celebration period.

few people would take notice if 3 days of darkness were in Winter
but if the 3 days of darkness were around a May Day or a July 4th...the Media would sure
make it well known to the masses

(hey, most people commute to work in the pre-dawn---return home in the twilight..
.& all their 'days' are in a cubicle or office) --- leaving it to their imagination that there was no 'daylight'

now... since the 3 days of darkness means that it won't be a subdued light nor a twilight...then the 'darkness', must be either a metaphor or a reality
Darkness in a emotional/moralistic sense
Darkness in a physics sense

i can't see the Earth not rotating to create Days/Nights
nor can i see a super mother-ship putting the Planet Earth in the shadow of its presence

so (and I disagree)... the darkness has got to be a supernatural event for 72 consecutive hours GMT
which is supposed to befuddle humankind...and lead to a belief in Christian dogma/religion

hey... does that Photon Belt still exist to all those channelers & assorted 'believers'?
that cloud of photons might be a cause for the 72 hour darkness thing

i get exhausted typing so bye-bye

Can you or anyone else who has studied the "3 days of darkness" prophecy, show me the scriptures where this prophecy is recorded?

In Exodus it is mentioned as the Israelites are being led out of Egypt under Moses, but nowhere in any verse of any chapter including Revelation can I find this prophecy as pertaining to the end times Biblically.

Only a few Catholic "mystics" recorded it recently as far as I am aware.

God Bless,

There are too many unknown variables here. I see what you are getting at but even a physicist with a super computer won't be able to give you anything more than hypotheticals.

If you want to look for a cause of three days of darkness that could be established with a greater relative certainty, look here, on Earth. Study the volcanic events we have witnessed and the observed relationship between eruptions and the atmospheric debris resulting.

Might I suggest beginning with the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo.

There is no Scriptural prophecy concerning three days of darkness. The closest is Revelation 8:12 - "The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night."

But, of course, if I had enough time and energy to do so (and if it wouldn't be off-topic, as specifically requested by the OP), I'd explain why we shouldn't be looking for this, or any of the rest of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, to happen any time soon.

The three days of darkness are caused by there being a cloud of crap travelling with a planet that will pass between earth and the sun,it is possible our life here could have originally been seeded here by this interaction,not humans as we are today,but the life that created the primates that we were made from,original life forms that were delivered here as all life is delivered around the universe.

So calculate at what speed this cloud would have to be travelling to cover us for that long ,how big or long the cloud must be.

Dont discount the earth stopping its rotation or something similar in addition to the cloud of debris,this planet is like the Galaxy express,in the future we might be smart enough to understand that this is the most effective way of travalling through the universe,hitchhiking on celestial bodies going where we want to go.

It will be a good thing to be inside with your doors locked,for this three days ,there will be some type of serious stuff happening to lifeforms because of the magnetic and energy fluctuations and there will be physical and mental effects on all unprotected people and animals.

Kiss all sattelites good bye ,and plan on a generation or two of hell because the powers that be are fully prepared but most people will die before any real help can be offered,the reality is that it only takes six months of global breakdown to starve most of us to death or have us be killed by illness,just six months for most to go,but there will be massive violence by the many countrys not prepared and in the countrys that are prepared but heavily populated.

We have been abandoned already we just dont know it.

Google crop circles j-shaped underground shelter if you want to live,a message was contained in a crop circle and deciphered by someone,the ,message was a survival plan a dead on the money plan for survival that even the poorest human could devise and use to survive,

Read the plans for the shelter so you understand how to build one then stop for a second close your eyes and try to imagine what will happen to all the water on earth when the planet stops turning,the water keeps going,just envision it ,then understand that you need to be able to survive just one massive change and then you have a chance to keep humanitys light ablaze.

Many people have been abducted and given information and direction about this event,all major religons and governments are aware this is a crime against humanity because we can all dig a hole,the powers that be are selfish monsters who are counting resources for the aftermath of the event and they know there wont be enough of anything if to many people survive and they know how violent things will get,global anarchy in developed countrys and utter silence in others,Imagine when all the nuclear reactors go red at once?Thats why these monsters are all hiding underground,they already know they will survive the passing of Nibiru,its the Aftermath they are preparing for.
