Despite my pooh-poohing of catastrophism a few posts ago, I must admit I hold a sneaking suspicion that when eclipses combine the gravitational pull
of the moon and the sun, they might cause some earthquakes. There do seem to be clusters of quakes after eclipses, but whether this is just
coincidence I don't know.
It doesn't seem particularly unlikely that a pull that can raise sea-levels on a daily basis wouldn't also be powerful enough to perhaps indirectly
cause a tiny movement in a geological formation that was already on the verge of triggering a slip.
