Something very strange hit almost EVERY seismograph in the US at the same time!!!

Well, here's a far fetched idea. Something coming toward us and slowing from the speed of light would emit gravity pulses. Maybe we just had a gravity wave pass through. [ TOLD you it was far fetched ]

thats weird kind of makes me think whats all going on out there

Perhaps we just nuked hollow earth
No but seriously it may be due to the explosions at the oil spill.

I was confused at first (nothing new, lol) the red dots are stations not actual earthquakes. Maybe its just a glitch thru the stations. I hope so, otherwise something very strange is a happin-ing. Will keep tabs here for updates, haven't heard anything on the news.

Possibly this (though i am not sure of the times/timezones)

COSTA Rica's Arenal volcano has erupted, spewing geysers of lava, ash and toxic gases from its crater and forcing the evacuation of the national park where it is located.

I have fond memories of Arenal. When it blows, especially at night, it is gorgeous. I wouldn't put too much stock into the connection between the seismic activity and Arenal. The damned thing goes off all the time, and whats more there are so many volcanoes in Costa Rica, plus it sits on one of the most active regions of the Ring of Fire that it renders the event insignificant.

Why is this thread 10 pages long? It just makes us look silly, here at ATS.

It was the 6.5 earthquake.

P-waves don't take hours to first be registered on seismographs around the world. (Although it can take that long for things to stop bouncing around.) The p-wave travel times are publicly accessible. They would have started everywhere around the world by 16:37. Here they are:

Kathmandu, Nepal 150.70 18:41.7 16:37:10.7 PKPdf

When you see something like this, first of all check a cleaner seismograph. The ones accessible at the OP's link have a pretty primitive display. Try one of the ones at Yellowstone:

(Horse Butte)

then, go to the global earthquake list and look for a quake of any substantial size just before the anomaly:

Oh, I see a 6.5 earthquake in Brazil, registering at 16:18 UTC. Let me check the P-wave times. OK, that explains it. Done! You Are Not Doomed.

If you don't want to do that, cool, but stop ignoring the people who are telling you what it was.

Maybe this is a sign that the poles are shifting or about to happen??

In the last 30 days there have been 15 quakes of 500km or deeper around the world. The deepet being over 710km. If your explanation was correct then readings all over the globe should be a relatively (once every two days or so) occurence. How do you explain that this phenomenon seems to be unique?

How many 6.5 earthquakes have there been?
It takes a fairly strong quake to be picked up around the world. Just because some people on ATS have not seen it does not mean it is unique.

I highly doubt that N. Korea had anything to do with this.

Okey, I'm gonna put this out there. I know it'll be off topic. But if I have my military time right, the 1630MDT would be about 1:30 in NY right? I was woke from a sound sleep just before 130AM having a hard time breathing. I don't have breathing problems. Has anyone else experianced anything like this at the time of this 1620/1630 event?

Hmmm...the Norway station reading was pretty dramatic compared to the rest:

Obviously, this is the same country where the volcano is but the reading came across at the same time all the others did and seems to be the most dramatic from the others I saw, SO FAR.

Also, the Florida center is crazy looking (that's my technical term
) is it some sort of glitch?:

All in all, this is a very strange occurrence. I know Phage suggested P waves from the Brazil earthquake on Monday. My only question is: Why would the Norway station have a much stronger reading compared to all the others, even the ones closest to the earthquake itself?

edit to add: I am NOT doubting the Brazil EQ explanation, in fact, it seems to be the most obvious. I'm just trying to understand the phenomenon more as this is all new to me.

I believe that would be due to varying sensitivity settings of the various instruments.

The ambient ground-noise level is one of the most important factors in determining sensitivity requirements for a seismograph system. This paper, on the basis of eighty-one measurements in three areas in Texas, concludes that for these areas minimum ambient noise levels (in terms of particle velocity) of the order of 3 to 5 millionths of an inch per second are common.

Seismometry is not simply a matter of measuring how far the needle moves.

ok...assuming the Brazil quake was at the right depth, and of the right magnitude to send P waves around the word, and assuming they would all be registered around the world within an hour, surely we can simply look at the times and easily deduce that they propagated from Brazil? And also we can assume that the magnitude of the quakes would reduce as we move further from Brazil?

EDIT: And another question, we have quakes being registered all over the world, and it seems quite large quakes were recorded at many distances quite far from Brazil, but we have no corroborating reports of people feeling quakes, so I'm assuming P waves don't make much of an impact?

I don't know about easily.
But that is exactly how the earthquake in Brazil was located, by using data from various seismometers.

The magnitude is the amount of energy released by the earthquake. It doesn't "reduce". As I said seismometry is not a simple reading of needles.

Global events are rare. Solar system wide events even rarer. Events that include deep space anomalies must have odds worse than winning a fixed lottery. The many simultaneous anomalies listed in almost every post of this thread take my breath away. If there is a pattern, it seems vast. Great thread and great posts.

Thank you quakewatcher, my sentiments exactly!

This thread was driving me nuts, no one reads or listens it seems.

Maybe, or should be, related. ( must check the day )

Video: Kamikaze Comet Dives Into Sun’s Lower Atmosphere

NASA’s twin sun-observing spacecraft tracked a comet further than ever before as it dove into the sun.

The images were presented at the American Astronomical Meeting in Miami May 24.

We cannot see what happen after the crash. But you could possibly find other information elsewhere.

[edit on 25-5-2010 by psychederic]

Supposition the phenoma "earth quake" (if linked with the comet) let us these supposition :
1) Solar/Magnetic flare ?
2) Gravity wave disturbance ?

Earth may be approaching super-hot gas cloud

maybe this is the cause?

The Earth may be about to move into a million-degree cloud of interstellar gas, according to Polish and US scientists.
They suggest that the Ribbon of enhanced emissions of Energetic Neutral Atoms, discovered last year by NASA Small Explorer satellite IBEX, could be explained by the fact that we're approaching the boundary between the Local Cloud of interstellar gas and another cloud of a very hot gas called the Local Bubble.

Might I add only 2 months ago there was a 6.9 (or so) magnitude quake registered some 350 miles under the Granadian Mountains in Southern Spain, this is exactly the same magnitude and depth as this Brazilian quake and yet worldwide sensors failed to pick this up.

Explain that.
