Galactic Alignment Spells Doom end world in 2012. Many of the sky-watchers believe 2012 will close with a "galactic alignment," which will occur for the first time in 26,000 years.
According to this scenario, the path of the sun in the sky would appear to cross through what, from Earth, looks to be the midpoint of our galaxy, the Milky Way, which in good viewing conditions appears as a cloudy stripe across the night sky.
Some fear that the lineup will somehow expose Earth to powerful unknown galactic forces that will hasten its doom perhaps through a "pole shift" see above or the stirring of the super massive black hole at our galaxy's heart.
NASA's Morrison has a different view.
According to NASA report there is no 'galactic alignment' in 2012.
Scientist explained that a type of "alignment" occurs during every winter solstice, when the sun, as seen from Earth, appears in the sky near what looks to be the midpoint of the Milky Way.
So Horoscope writers may be excited by alignments, Morrison said. But "the reality is that alignments are of no interest to science. They mean nothing," he said. They create no changes in gravitational pull, solar radiation, planetary orbits, or anything else that would impact life on Earth.
