hello, i got that message from a friend, it reads. " Coming October 17, 2008 the sun will rise continuously for 36 hrs. (1.5 days). during this time the US countries will be dark for 1.5 days. it will convert 3 days into 2 big day. it will happen once in 2400 years. we're very lucky to see these. this is a global phenomenon." Courtesy of CNN/BBC NEWS. i don't know if it's true but it also strucks me like you did.
