AN ASTEROID the size of a blue whale is shooting past Earth later today and conspiracy theorists believe “it could be the last hour”.

The Sun reports that there are allegedly two other signs that the end is nigh, including a super moon that will appear to grow in size as it reaches the closest point to the planet.

Earth is also expected to enter darkness as the moon passes in front of the sun, blocking its light and creating a solar eclipse.

Some believe these are biblical omens that could suggest doom and gloom for the future of humanity.

Anita Fuentes, an internet pastor, and her husband Ignacio, spoke on a YouTube video about ‘the end’.

In the strangely cheery video, Ms Fuentes revealed the day coincided with her birthday.
