This thread regarding strange lights over Iran
prompts the prediction that there will be a major earthquake, probably within the next 72 hours.

This is based on the theory that strange lights are created by igneous stress
as examined here (pdf)

Here they come, a few days later and not as powerful as I estimated:

Iran 4.8

More Quakes hit Iran

Iran's southeastern city of Bam shakes by quake

Of course, you don't need to be psychic when it comes to that region:



Minor earthquakes are frequent in Iran, which is located on seismic fault lines.

How did you determine earthquakes would be coming from lights in the sky?

My business is geophysical exploration.

This is a phenomenon which I have witnessed in some rare instances.
'Lights in the sky' stories often accompany earthquakes,
both as precursors as well as after-effects.
Seismic stresses can, dependent upon geological composition,
release ionizing pulses into the atmosphere.
The subsequent behaviour of ionized atmosphere confuses the general public.
Interpreting the lights as UFOs is an amusing tendency, anyway.

Besides creating strange lights, seismic stresses also create noises, em pulses, and other events.
Note that there is a lot more to this than it appears.
Lights and other such events can accompany seismic stress relieved without creating earthquakes.
The anomalies and the earthquakes do not necessarily require each other.
But, where you find one the probability is high that the other will also occur.

First, I noticed the Iranian UFO story
Next, checking the records, I saw that Iran was due for another significant jolt.
The baffling lights story indicated that the time was approaching.
If it were only that easy all the time....

cheers

Fantastic and interesting post there, Teknik. Are you planning on writing a paper on these observations? I would be very interested in your long-term results on this?

I don't think predicting a 5.0 in that region is all that difficult, they're actually quite common. Checkout the IRIS Seismic Monitor site www.iris.edu... - Pretty Cool.


BTW - 4.8 on May 8 in southern Iran - close!

That is about the sum of it, actually.
Look at the data.
Tomorrow, somewhere on this planet, there will be an earthquake of around 5.0
Where ? Pick any seismicly active region and look for a quiet period.
Eventually that period will end with a tremor or series of tremors. Probably with warning(s).
That much is cast in stone, until the earth quits having seismic activity.

People tend to forget that this planet is only moderately stable.
