Gamma ray bursts are common, as can be seen here:
They come from very distant sources (so far) and are very weak by the time they get to our sensors. They have no effect on anything. While a gamma ray burst from a near source would be devastating we would be dead before we knew it happened.
This has been a fairly significant event with the magnetopause position being pushed back to a geosynchronous orbit for a period of about 7 days before it snapped back all at once on July 15th only to be suppressed going into the 16th of July once more but at the time of the creation of this video it had not moved below a geosynchronous orbit .
This statement make no sense whatsoever. The magnetopause is not in a geosynchronous orbit. It is not in any orbit. It does not orbit.
The entire article is nonsense.

A similar blast within 3 parsecs (10 light years) of earth would destroy the ozone layer and would be similar to a 12 kt of TNT (50 TJ) nuclear blast at 7.5 km. The nearest known magnetar to earth is 1E 2259+586, 4 kiloparsecs (13,000 light years) away.

Something definitely happened and there IS a correlation between flares/burst etc. to quakes.
That is Fact!

Are you implying that the gamma ray burst had something to do with the "bite" in the magnetosphere? Electromagnetic radiation (including gamma rays) does not affect the magnetosphere.
Do you see anything there on the 15th at 16:50? I don't either. It looks to me like the simulator had a hiccup over some minor bit of data. In fact it's apparent that the disturbance does come from the direction of the Sun. The dude with the website picked a frame that makes it look like it didn't. More nonsense.
I have reason to believe that some of the magnetopause position data has been falsified in the animation though the actual magnetopause position has greatly rebounded into the 15th of July according to the actual data . It is much like a rubberband snapping back into place. I sure would have loved to have seen this actual rebounding take place however that data has been overlayed and censored as you can see towards the end of the first animation in this movie .

i hope there wasnt too much damage to the earth. so how big was the earth quake? did anybody get any readings? 15th has pretty much run its course hasnt it? just wondering.....

Thanks Phage for your input. On these topics I seem to wait for your personal response.
