A narrator then says: “Today we will be discussing some rather serious news about the comet that has broken off from Nibiru and is heading straight towards earth.
“According to one doomsday theorist this might just be the one that does us in.
“Since then, NASA has known it will hit Earth. But they are only telling people now.”
It said his “data” indicated that the object was once a part of Planet X.
So just what is the truth?
The story of a comet breaking away from Nibiru actually originated in January 2017 on spoof Nibiru website Someonesbones.com.
The false report was based on true reports from NASA that the then newly-discovered asteroid or comet 2016WF9 was due to pass Earth at 32 million miles in February that year.
Quotes from Dr Zakharovich about it appearing to originate from Nibiru appear to be hoax.
Thenewdaily.com looked at the original spoof story in January this year.
Its report said: “The New Daily was unable to verify if ‘Dr Dyomin Damir Zakharovich’ is a real person. There is no trace online of a person by that name being employed by any university or having published any academic work.”
It also quoted Associate Professor Jonti Horner, an astronomer at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia.
He said: “I’ve never heard of anybody who’s an actual astronomer talk about Nibiru before.
“It’s basically an urban myth — it’s like having a biologist coming out and talking about werewolves and the Sasquatch being real. You just wouldn’t hear it.”
