But where there's hype, there's also conspiracy theories.
They claim, since 1996, we have already been feeling the disruptive effects of the inbound rogue Planet X.
Twelve American states will fall into the path of a total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 (Monday). The changes would bring huge alterations in the climate of Earth.
"Now, I don't know about that", he adds, before spending a few minutes discussing faux research about Planet X.
For the uninitiated, the non-existent Nibiru (sometimes called Planet X) is a planet-sized object supposedly hurtling through space towards an inevitable smash into our own planet.
He continues, the "author mentions several times how certain things are "facts" just because 'God said so on the Bible", and then goes on and on over the rapture'.
"Nibiru is populated by the Anunnaki, an advanced humanoid race, who visited Earth thousands of years to mine gold in Africa".

There have been predictions since 2003 that Nibiru would soon end the world.
The agency said if Nibiru were headed for an encounter with the Earth, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.
David Meade is a Christian numerologist has given warning that there is a strong likelihood of a mysterious planet "Nibiru" to crash itself into the Earth. Called the Great American Eclipse, this would be a once-in-a-lifetime celestial spectacle. The writings are present in Isaiah chapter 13 verses 9-10, "See, the day of the Lord is coming - a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger - to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it".
"The Stars of Heaven and their constellations will not show their light". That means you need a moon for a solar eclipse to happen and that moon has to be the right size and distance from the planet and the sun.
Mr Meade claimed that there are several coincidences involving the number 33 that also suggest the apocalypse is near. "The eclipse will start in Lincoln Beach, Oregon - the 33rd state - and end on the 33rd degree of Charleston, South Carolina. Such a solar eclipse has not occurred since 1918, which is 99 years - or 33 times three". He said the eclipse enters through the 33rd U.S. state, exits at the 33rd latitude by Charleston, and occurs 33 days out from the Great Sign of Revelation 12. From the Bible version to the Mayan numbers, the apocalypse had many versions.
"Images and data from potentially as many as millions of people will be collected and analysed by scientists for years to come", Carrie Black from the US National Science Foundation said last month.
The scientific staff of NASA claim that Nibiru is located in 20 times farther from the Sun than Neptune, so the ninth planet cannot affect the existence of humanity and life on Earth.
"That's why so many cultures have created stories and myths about eclipses throughout history".
