New Zealand covers a big area, not just the 3 Islands, there were only 2 Mag 8's under the islands landmass, the rest were offshore in territories under NZ juristiction (sp?) ie Kermadecs, Balleny Is, Auckland Is.

Same with the USA, thats why I put in /Alaska/Hawaii, there have only been 4 Mag 8's on the US Mainland

October Moon Phases
www.fourmilab.ch...
interesting that Full Moon and Apogee both fall on the 12th
and New Moon and Perigee both fall on the 26th

I wonder what the consequences of this are earthquake wise, if any?

So on the 12th it is about as far away an un gravitational as it can get and on the 26th - something else rings a bell for that date - it is at the closest and most gravitational if I understand that right.

Oh yes Elenin on the 26th. The next end of the world date I believe. I really don't think I can go on having ends of the world. It is very tiring!

Quake in the middle of the Atlantic? Looks strange to me but maybe I just never paid much attention to that part of the world before.

I have been following Quakes a while, and never seem one near Bermuda before. Thats diverse.

yeah thats about it, closest point all this year, and the moon will be between the Sun and The Earth at that point on the 26th
maybe this is what started the doomsdayers going, still not too late to get your affairs in order!.
I'm still giving out installation warrantys on my roofing work, what the heck eh, no problem if its the end of the world in 3 weeks

Quakes in Bermuda area? Texas? Alabama? Canada? They may not be big ones, but they are in diverse places.

I've personally only been following USGS for the last year and a half or so when I became more interested in earthquakes so I can't really judge but things certainly seem out of the ordinary lately don't they? I'm sitting here in California patiently awaiting our big one and all of these quakes popping up in weird places makes me think somewhere else may be getting it first.

Yeah Bermuda hardly ever has them according to USGS. Two in a row or this just an error? Pondering.... SO uh....what ya say guys? Is this it or what?
I laugh, but ya never know.

They often have duplicate quakes recorded from different monitors and delete one later, so I'm not sure but I'm guessing it was just one.

Hmm - moving down or up? I dislike this current quake! Make me feel on edge. Just a gut feelilng....

Hi Muzzy, whatcha doin? Why you making me think about loony stuff like the moon?

Just 'cause you mentioned it, how about noting the moon's position during the two swarms at Yellowstone. The first I believe was Boxing Day 2008. I'm sure about the second. That was January 15th 2010. Because I predicted it. Documented it on ATS. It happened just after the moon's shadow left the earth after the total eclipse.


The big difference between then and now is perigee and apogee were reversed. And another major distinction is the earth's position. I think the moon's affects are more pronounced during perihelion. Just saying.

Giving you guys a tid bit of info,as I am currently researching it.
The effect of the moon on Earths lithosphere.
Besides causing the oceans to wane back and forth,the tides,it also causes the earth's crust to deform,or "bulge".

~ 30 cm, then the tidally induced average radial expansion is ~ 5 cm (ie., the Earth's crust oscillates from -25 to +35 cm). This result seems plausible, and may be Order-of-Magnitude accurate.

Another interesting theory is glacial rebound.
That is the weight of the ice on the crust actually causing it to depress.
Now,take in fact that many glaciers have retreated,and iceshelves have become smaller and broken off.


People often wonder how thick the glacial ice was that covered North Dakota. When asked, my response has usually been "I don't know," but sometimes I've speculated if the questioner has persisted. My answer is usually something like "The ice may have been as much as a mile thick in the northeastern corner of North Dakota at Pembina, which is where I think it was the thickest in North Dakota," or "It was up to 8,000 feet thick near Hudson Bay." But I've never done any kind of study myself to verify whether my estimate for North Dakota was even close to being correct. This "Geologic Note" will deal with the question of the thickness of the glacial ice and with isostatic depression and rebound of the earth's crust due to the effects of glaciation, especially in eastern North Dakota. There would seem to be a number of ways to get at the answer to the question "how thick was the glacier?" We can make comparisons with existing glaciers in places like Greenland and Antarctica, but these may or may not be typical of the glaciers that covered North Dakota 20,000 years ago, near the maximum of the most recent glaciation, the Late Wisconsinan glaciation. Another way of indirectly getting at the answer of how much ice existed during the Ice Age is to determine the amount that sea level dropped at the time - the amount of the drop must represent the water that was tied up as glacial ice during the Ice Age.

It is a very complex system,and any change to that,albeit small considering the earth,major to us as humans.

The weight of water and ice is being redistributed around the globe.

OMG! I looked at the link - TOO MUCH MATH! OY!

I'm glad there are those of you here who are math minded - because I am not


So from your synopsis, it causes the oceans to wane back and forth, causing the earth to "bulge". Got that much out of it - thank you

Anyone living along the coast knows that at certain times,the tides are "running".Meaning the are more extreme then at other times of the year.
I learned this during shrimping season in Charleston.
But,It also affects the lithosphere,or crust of the Earth.




Sorry,I should move this over to the hoax thread.

It's not a hoax. The moon causes quakes. The proof was in the statistics.
The argument is how much does the moon influence earthquakes. I am a total believer. But even I think the influence is small. It is combined with other factors. Is mostly a trigger. And it's largest influence is when you have the gravitation force at it's maximums and when it happens over two cycles. I've described it like a pump. Meaning it's a process where you need to prime the pump. The sun is also included. So you have dance of the three main bodies. Like the spinning dancers in a waltz when they exchange partners. The greatest momentum is felt after the exchanges as the swung around and then handed off. Sorry. For kdog's sake, you may all have felt this sensation when you've done some square dancing in school. Do you remember the tickle when you got thrown around? Them's little earthquakes.

Sorry.

I get loony around the full moony. This one coming is the Hunter Moon or the Harvest Moon.
