Interesting, I knew that the magnetic south pole was not true south, but I always thought the North Pole was steady.
I wonder if this means the poles are ready to flip?
Our North loses the Pole
After centuries in Canada, the roaming magnetic North Pole has crossed into international waters, en route to Siberia.
A Canadian scientist who recently returned from a trip to measure the Pole's current location says it has now left Canadian territory and crossed
into international waters.
"I think the Pole has probably just moved past the 200-nautical-mile limit," said Larry Newitt, head of the Natural Resources Canada geomagnetic
laboratory in Ottawa. "It's probably outside of Canada, technically. But we're still the closest country to it."
