Ok now wait. THIS is just too bizarre:

That 4.9 at 10 km depth just occurred in the middle of nowhere. Never EVER seen an earthquake anywhere NEAR there.

Go away you friggin supermoon. You're making me nervous.

No WONDER I couldn't figure out where that sukka came from. I saw traces of that quake on spectro on various stations, but I couldn't identify where, because it was like a weak trace.

Not according to this

Closest Perigee this year is Nov 14 11:24 356511 km
That's UTC, so add 13 hours for NZDT, making it 15 November 2016 at 12:25:00 a.m (today about 1 hour ago)
and the Hope Fault 7.5-7.8 was 13 Nov 24:02:56NZDT or 13 Nov 11:02:56UTC
so about 37 hours early.
But who is to say the quake will strike just as the Moon swoops by the closest, there may be a tipping point at say 357,500.
Where you get an exact distance at the time of the earthquake?

April 7th was 357163 km

I got the moon distance from here:

I thought the same thing, "That's flippin weird..."
Glad to see your post about it, validated my curiosity.

This 5.6 near Tonga is a bit unusual as well, near the end of the known fault?
ETA: But yeah, at least there's a known fault there...

So now at 7 days past the super duper moon, a 6.9(USGS) to 7.4 (JMA) hits Japan, in addition to all the other "increased magnitude" quakes that have been pointed out in this thread.

T-totally coincidence, right? All you scientists had to do was make it through a couple weeks with no big quakes. Just a couple weeks. And you couldn't even do that. The super duper moon pwned us all.

I came on to say "but what about this 7.8/7.9 at Solomon Islands?
No SuperMoon or anything else happening with the Moonthat I can see.

Then before I typed I checked Chadwickus' link above
At the time of the Solomons 7.8 Moon Earth Distance [km]: 371,912.303
the day before it was 377,200.391km

so guess what? in the 24 hours around the Solomon quake slips into the 357,500km "tipping point" I suggested relating to the Marlborough 7.8
perhaps it works both coming in and going away

Need to check this against some other M7's

Another big quake
F-E Region: New Ireland Region, P.N.G.
Time: 2016-12-17 10:51:10.9 UTC
Magnitude: 7.8 (Mw)
Epicenter: 153.46°E 4.52°S
Depth: 93 km

Moon Earth Distance [km]: 374,860.6, moving away from Earth
no where near the 357,500km "tipping point"

Please explain?
Another Red Herring?
