Sun will rise continuously for 36 hours starting 17 October

I received the following email message:

FW: Coming October 17 the sun will rise continuously for 36 hrs (1.5 days). During this time the US countries will be dark for 1.5 days. It will convert 3 days into 2 big days. It will happen once in 2400 yrs. We're very lucky to see this. Forward it to all ur frenz.

Did u got this mail? If not I am sure you will, in coming few days.

Now, a question arises that is it true or just a rumor. I don't think it is a true statement. Someone has created a hoax just to get attention. If it is, Nasa wouldn't keep quiet about it. So , do not belive stupid hoaxes unless there is real proof. For it to happen all of a sudden only for a day, the Earth would need to slow down its rate of spin. For a body as massive as the Earth, it is not possible without destroying itself as the energy from angular momentum changes so abruptly.

What.. you think about this please share your comment.

Last Sunday I got a chance to visit the famous temple of Baba Balak Nath at Gadkhal.
Gadkhal! A place about 35 KM from Solan, near kasauli.It comes just 5 KM ahead of Kasauli,
which is also a famous tourist spot, while driving from Solan. Gadkhal is a hilly area and is famous for the temple of Baba Balak Nath. The beautiful temple is situated on the hill top. One can reach there by bus or taxi.
People from all over the Himachal as well as neighboring states visit this temple especially on Sundays and in Navratras. People believe that all their wishes are fulfilled in this temple. Every Sunday, priest of the temple “Baba ji” sits on his ‘Gaddi’ and answers all the queries of the followers. It is said that when he sits on his gaddi a supernatural power of Baba Balak Nath enters in him, then the Baba correctly tells about ones’ past and gives exact prediction of future.

I visited the temple with my family members. We set out early in the morning at 6.30 am by Taxi and reached at 8.00 am. It was a bright sunny day. We witnessed beautiful sunrise at their. The Scenic beauty of Gadkhal itself is awesome. About 300 people were already present there, when we reached the temple. Most of them had reached the place on Saturday evening and stayed in the ‘Mandir Sarai’ to get the Token for ‘Darshan’. The first line of about 80 people was started at 5.30 in the morning. As one of our family member was there since Saturday evening we managed to get the 95th Token and we were at 15th place in the second line. We had to wait for 1 Hour for our turn. After ‘Darshan’ and taking ‘Aashirwad’ of Baba ji we came out of the temple and captured some nice pics in my camera.

Then we went to ground near temple, and the holy ‘Langar’ was ready. We took the Langar and left the place around 2.30 PM.

By the sunset we were back at home i.e. Solan.
