End of the world LIVE stream: Watch scientists observe Nibiru Planet X in the skies

Thousands of internet doom mongers and apocalypse enthusiasts have speculated for months that a mystical Planet X, or Nibiru, will approach Earth on September 23.

The colossal planet from beyond the fringes of the solar system, will supposedly wreak havoc across Earth, ending the world as we know it.

These spectacular claims have been ridiculed by the world’s scientific communities for months, and now in an attempt to sort fact from fiction, scientists are gathering to search for Nibiru.

Astronomers from the robotic observatory Slooh have called for everyone to join them as they point their telescopes towards the night sky today at at 7.59pm EDT (12.59am BST).

Slooh said: “Many people may believe that the end of the world is upon us, but what evidence do we have to support that idea? 

“Slooh is taking a look at the stars, the planets, and the myth behind those that believe the end of the world is coming on September 23rd! 

“With special guests, we will analyze what these claims are based on and if there could be any truth to them!”

On top of the search for Planet X, Slooh will also follow the path of the potentially hazardous asteroid 2017 PR25, which will fly-by Earth.

Slooh’s experts will also be on hand to discuss the newly discovered comet C/2017 O1 (ASASSN), and talk about the real threat posed by asteroids and other celestial bodies.

The live stream will be hosted by Paul Cox, observatory director and chief astronomical officer’, astronomer Helen Avery, and Astronomy Magazine columnist Bob Berman.

You can find the live stream on the Slooh.com website, but there is a slight catch – it is hidden behind a paywall.

Slooh memberships cost a monthly fee of $4.95 (£3.67) for an ‘apprentice’ account and $24.95 (£18.49) for an ‘astronomer’ account.

In the run up to the prophesied end of the world, the internet has gone wild with conspiracy theories, doomsday hoaxes and outlandish claims.

Leading the Nibiru theory is self-proclaimed Christian numerologist David Meade who has self published several books on the topic.

In his book Planet X – The 2017 Arrival, the author has claimed that Nibiru will approach Earth to fulfil a prophecy set in the biblical Book of Revelation.

However this theory has been constantly debunked by the the world’s leading scientists.

Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, ridiculed the Planet X prophecy calling it a hoax.

He told Express.co.uk: “I don’t know what to say except that it’s nonsense.”

Nasa have also ridiculed the Planet X apocalypse, saying: “The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.

“The story of Nibiru has been around for years (as has the ‘days of darkness’ tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.”

Christian ‘Researcher’ Claims The Rapture Starts On Saturday

There’s yet another doomsday date approaching, with some claiming that the rapture will start on Saturday. 

That’s when certain Christians will get sucked up into heaven while the Earth descends into a chaotic “tribulation” period for those who are left. 

Several videos about the supposed coming cataclysm are going viral with similar claims, including the trippy clip above showing some kind of space queen giving birth in front of a seven-headed moon lizard

But don’t stock up on Jim Bakker’s doomsday food buckets just yet. The entire basis for the prediction is bunk. The September rapture date came from a Christian researcher named David Meade who calculated it would occur 33 days after last month’s eclipse, The Washington Post reported. 

“Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible],” Meade told the newspaper. “It’s a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number. I’m talking astronomy. I’m talking the Bible … and merging the two.”

Meade believes global catastrophes will be caused by a secret planet called Nibiru passing the Earth on Saturday. The world won’t end, “but the world as we know it is ending,” he told the Post.

NASA ― and just about every astronomer ― said Nibiru doesn’t exist. 

Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax,” the space agency said on its website a few years ago when similar doomsday predictions went viral. “There is no factual basis for these claims.” 

Even fellow Christians are calling out Meade and others over the latest doomsday predictions. 

While the writers of the Bible have used numbers at times, Stetzer said there were no “secret numerical codes that require a profession called ‘Christian numerology.’”

In other words, go ahead and make plans for Sunday. 

Kevin Hart Working, Smiling Through Extortion Scandal

Kevin Hart I’m Smiling Through Extortion Plot … It’s My Job!

9/18/2017 12:19 PM PDT

Kevin Hart isn’t missing a beat when it comes to making money … extortion plot, be damned.

In fact, Kevin was all smiles Monday morning on the set of “Night School,” which is currently shooting in Clayton, Georgia. His face didn’t show any tension about the fact someone tried to get up to 8 figures from him to keep a video of him allegedly cheating under wraps.

As TMZ first reported, authorities are on the case and closing in on a suspect.

Kevin seems confident. Or he’s just a really good actor.

Pete Souza reminds us of when our president wasn’t feuding with every pro sports league

In 48 hours, President Donald Trump ignited feuds with the NFL and the NBA

Hey, remember when the president didn’t do that? 

Pete Souza does. The Obama White House photographer turned full-time shade-thrower posted a photo of President Obama with Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry on Saturday morning. 

“President Obama with Steph Curry last year at the White House. The President was ‘helping’ Steph with his jump shot release,” Souza captioned the photo. 

Souza posted his photo a few hours after Trump disinvited Curry from visiting the White House via Twitter. Curry and the rest of the Golden State Warriors were invited to visit as league champions. Curry’s inclination not to attend and his criticism of the president inspired Trump to personally and publicly uninvite him. 

“I don’t want to go,” Curry said on Friday. “That’s kind of the nucleus of my belief…(But) it’s not just me going to the White House. If it was, this would be a pretty short conversation.”

“That we don’t stand for basically what our President has … said and the things that he hasn’t said in the right times, that we won’t stand for it. And by acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye to. It’s not just the act of not going there. There are things you have to do on the back end to actually push that message into motion.

“[Athletes are] all trying to do what we can. We’re using our platforms, using our opportunities to shed light on that, so that’s kind of where I stand on it. I don’t think us not going to the White House is going to miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.”

Souza wasn’t the only one to shade Trump over his Warriors-related temper tantrum. Jemele Hill, the ESPN journalist that Trump tried to get fired, also had a scorching social media response to the president’s petty tweet.

At the request of Chrissy Teigen, moms share the meanest things their kids have said

Little kids can really throw away the filter when it comes to sharing their feelings—in fact, they will often say pretty much anything. Sometimes this is adorable. And sometimes … it is scathing.

For proof, look no further than the following stories. After a difficult day, Chrissy Teigen asked moms on Twitter to share the times their kids were, uh, less than angelic.

And boy, did the parents deliver.

Here, though, is perhaps the most brutal story of all: a tale of mac and cheese, of lies, of broken promises.

At least we’ll always have good old commiseration.

LeBron James drags Trump with a perfect ‘U Bum’

Champion of insults.

There are so many things to call President Donald Trump. 

On Saturday morning, LeBron James found the perfect one. The NBA star called Trump “U bum” over the president’s rescinded invitation for Steph Curry to visit the White House, which came only after Curry stated that he didn’t want to go anyway. 

It’s so simple, yet so perfect. Who needs to curse out the president when “U bum” gets it across so well? 

Everyone loved James’ insult so much that it got more than 130,000 retweets in less than an hour. 

#UBum

Jimmy Kimmel’s Healthcare Monologues: The 11 Most Emotional Moments

5. “Which part don’t I understand?”

“Oh, I get it, I don’t understand, ’cause I’m a talk show host,” Kimmel said in his second monologue, in response to Cassidy telling CNN that Kimmel “doesn’t understand” his bill. “Help me out, which part don’t I understand? Is it the part where you cut $243 billion from healthcare assistance? … Where states would be allowed to let insurance companies price you out of coverage for having pre-existing conditions?” And he went on.

“Or could it be, Senator Cassidy, that I do understand, and you got caught with your G.O.Penis out?” he added.

6. “I don’t get anything out of this.”

Kimmel’s biggest argument in this whole thing has been that he has the means to help his son, but has been compelled to speak out because so many families don’t.

“Brian [Kilmeade], you phony little creep. Ooooh, I’ll pound you next time I see you,” said Kimmel, saving some of his harshest words for the Fox & Friends host, who Kimmel claims secretly “wants so bad to be a part of the Holllywood elite,” despite rallying against it on his program.

Kimmel’s wife and co-head writer Molly McNearny also explained why the couple had no choice but to speak out on Twitter, writing, “It would be irresponsible knowing what we know and experiencing what we experienced to ‘stay in our lane.’ Move over. We’re merging.”

Selena Gomez’s Mom Opens Up About Her Daughter’s Kidney Transplant

Selena Gomez’s mother, Mandy Teefey, has opened up about her daughter’s kidney transplant in a touching Instagram post. 

Over the weekend, Teefey shared a photo of Gomez with best friend and kidney donor Francia Raisa in the hospital. It was the same photo that the “Fetish” singer shared last week when she first revealed news of her kidney transplant.

“This picture is one of the most breathtaking images that will live with me forever,” Teefey wrote. “For all those moments of not knowing if we were going up or going down, I can always come back to this picture and know we can always make it back up.”

“As a mother I was helpless, scared and all I could do was pray for both of them, Francia’s beautiful family,” she continued, before joking, “I am pretty sure I am banned from that hospital. Mama Bear was in high gear.”

Teefey went on to say that while her daughter gained a kidney, she herself gained another daughter in Raisa. She then made sure to thank everyone for their support.

“We survived from all the love, prayers and God,” she wrote.

Teefey’s post comes just a few days after Gomez went public with the news. In her own post on Instagram, the “Bad Liar” singer thanked her “incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery.” 

“There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa,” she added. “She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis.” 

Raisa also opened up about the surgery, posting the same photo on Instagram and writing, “I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life, but changed mine in the process.” 

Both Gomez and Raisa have said that there is more to their story, which they plan on sharing soon.

Roy Jones Jr. Praises Jake LaMotta, ‘Top 10 Boxer Of All Time’

Roy Jones Jr. Praises Jake LaMotta ‘Top 10 Boxer Of All Time’

9/20/2017 9:31 AM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Roy Jones Jr. says Jake LaMotta is one of the 10 greatest fighters EVER — and says the late, great boxer had a very real impact on his own legendary career. 

“He taught me that no matter how tough things got, no matter how hard things got, you don’t stop,” Jones tells TMZ Sports.

“That’s why he’s called a Raging Bull. You don’t stop for nothing.”

As for why Jake belongs on the All-Time Top 10 list, Roy says the way he pushed Sugar Ray Robinson (widely considered to be the best boxer ever) to the brink 6 TIMES is one of the most incredible feats anyone has ever accomplished in the ring.

Jake died on Tuesday. He was 95.  

Where is Nibiru believed to be NOW? Has Planet X already reached Earth?

Nibiru enthusiasts on the internet have long claimed that Nibiru has a 3,600 year-long orbit, during which it circles the Sun, Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Earth.

Theorists now speculate that the colossal planet – 10 times the size of Earth – will pass Earth on September 23.

Several amateur astronomers anticipating Nibiru’s approach have supposedly already photographed the celestial body travelling through space.

Pictures of a mysterious red blob in the sky have been touted online as the first images of Planet X before it reaches Earth.

The photographs were posted on the arcticstardesign.com discussion forum by a user named Dew, with the caption ‘Nibiru Incoming! Infrared Monster Approaching (IRMA)!!!’

Dew wrote under his post:  “It was aiming at Virgo’s lower half at 2:43pm – 2:46pm during the total solar eclipse using Canon EOS Rebel T3 with Hoya Infrared (pass-through) filter.”

A second set of images was supposedly taken on September 5, to further prove Nibiru’s approach.

Dew said: “Images above taken from Bradenton, Florida aiming at Virgo’s lower half between 9:24pm – 9:27pm using Canon EOS Rebel T3 with Hoya Infrared (pass-through) filter.

“Camera may have wiggled during 30 second exposure while holding steady on top of tripod.

“We still need to pinpoint the exact location and best exposure shutter speed to use, and then input into Stellarium.”

If the pictures taken by the online user are real, then they could suggest that Planet X is heading towards Earth.

But the outrageous claims have been dismissed by leading astronomers and scientists who have said that Nibiru is nowhere near Earth – because it does not exist.

, the world’s leading scientific expert in astronomy has labelled Planet X an online hoax.

Scores of conspiracy theorists are convinced that Nibiru is hurling towards Earth to marks the start of the apocalypse.

The popular online theory purports that Nibiru will appear over Earth to trigger earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis with its powerful gravitational waves.

The Planet X conspiracy has been circling the internet since the mid 1990s, but no concrete proof of Nibiru’s existence has since emerged.

Nasa has found evidence to suggest that an undiscovered planet may be lurking beyond Pluto, but it is not headed for Earth.

Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, ridiculed the Planet X prophecy underlining that it is a hoax.

He told Express.co.uk: “I don’t know what to say except that it’s nonsense.”

David Morrison, a leading scientist at the American space agency also explained: “There is no credible evidence whatever for the existence of Nibiru. 

“There are no pictures, no tracking, no astronomical observations.”
