Zero Gravity Day

Planetary Alignment On Jan 4, 2015 Will Decrease Gravity For 5 Minutes Causing Partial Weightlessness.

Strange natural occurrences are happening in the world today. But nothing more magnificent than the one you will experience on January 4, 2015. 

According to British astronomer Patrick Moore, at exactly 9:47 PST AM on January 4th, Pluto will pass directly behind Jupiter, in relation to Earth. This rare alignment will mean that the combined gravitational force of the two planets would exert a stronger tidal pull, temporarily counteracting the Earth’s own gravity and making people virtually weightless. Moore calls this the Jovian-Plutonian Gravitational Effect. 

Moore told scientists that they could experience the phenomenon by jumping in the air at the precise moment the alignment occurred. If they do so, he promised, they would experience a strange floating sensation.

I'm going to try... Who'd miss the chance to feel that rarity without requiring Ketamine? Not me is who.

Gravity is proportional to the distance from the center of mass. Considering the distance from Jupiter, and the mass of Pluto, the overall effect is probably as pronounced as the effect of a BB rolling down the sidewalk next to the Empire State Building. I doubt you'll have a momentary feeling of nausea and dizziness. Then again, if you do, remember what you ate for breakfast.

Okay, I don't normally get incredibly well thought out and highly intelligent sounding comments like yours. I get the momentary feelings of nausea and dizziness every payday... Please come back and comment any time you like.
