We have reached a milestone of the last calendar date of what historians believe is the final day on the ancient Mayan civilization's calendar. Specifically, the Mayan Calendar is supposed to end at 11:11am UTC today, which is 6:11am Eastern and 3:11am Pacific, or view in local time.
The top of the earth's axis will indeed be tilted away from the sun today, but it will not cause the earth to split open, it actually happens on December 21 every year.
One thing to note is the Mayans made their calendar out of a wheel, and contrary to some mis-information out there, today would probably be a celebratory day in the Mayan culture as the wheel reaches its end and simply resets. Sure the image of culture has faces made out of rocks that can look like scary monsters, but nothing in their culture says doomsday will happen when the calendar ends. However, there are some that believe today is a start of a new era. Regardless whether things seem the same or different than this time last year, or the winter before that, things have and always will change. Nothing in science supports anything bad will happen today. This, like many holiday seasons come and gone remind us the value of sharing memories (happy or sad) with family, friends, and community which embody our spirits louder than voices who fear doom and gloom.
If you do feel fearful of the unknown, just relax and eat an Oreo cookie. Come back here tomorrow and watch this video from NASA.
