I agree you put it well.. only the news link says there was a super moon in 2005 before katrina.
I understand what your saying about perigee and the moon having more of an effect on earth then.
but The moon is always affecting the earth no matter what its apogee or perigee I believe it is the fluctuation that causes the most problems the gradual force of the sun and moon working together pushing and pulling the earth.
so I feel the time leading up to perigee and away from perigee are just as important to observe as the day of Perigee if not more important, because the earth changes happen slowly...
hope that makes sense.. I 2 am recovering from a headache.
In other words, the planet’s poles have limbered up to the point that humans - among Earth’s most notorious freeloaders - may be thrown from the surface by a sudden worldwide jolt that one-ups recent seismic outbursts. Readily available numbers give a general feel for what’s going on. While I’m unsure of the implications of all the information I gather, I’m finding that increased solar wind combined with lower particle density seems to create marked instability in Earth’s crust and correspondingly-increased seismicity.

This probaly has no conection with this thread but i mentioned this too a family member i saw today and they work with people with mental conditions of all ages and when its a fool moon or an eclipes,or even this,that being a super moon affects people in all sorts of crazy ways and told me thats where the word lunatics comes from,so if this is an extreme occurence of this then people round the world might go a bit doooowalleeee,and could be a great time to F**# with peoples minds, just a thought.
ohh and if any one knows any one thats bipolar youd better strap them down and get the holy water out

I don't know what that recurring oscillation at the bottom of your chart is -- High tides, maybe?
That's a representation of the lunar cycle...the moon rise, the meridian (when the moon's directly overhead), and the moon set times.

OK, I didn't catch this as the "oregon" area for high tides.
The point of "directly influencing the Pacific plate" -- that's about 8 hours of distance between Oregon and France -- so you are correlating to 1/3rd of the day -- no, wait, that would be 2/3rds of the day due to TWO high tides in a day.
If 2/3rds of all earth quakes don't occur during a high tide over the Pacific plate -- then this concept is a bust. Actually, you might be able to go with "perpendicular" or low tide, and get the same number of earthquakes. Sure, the moon has an influence -- but it is a CONSTANT influence, and that means that regardless of when the earthquake occurs, it will have no correlation to anything specific the moon is doing.

The sun attracts the moon in such a way that it perturbs its orbit every 31.807 days, this phenomenon is called evection. The moon also changes the position of the earth’s equinoxes. The sun and moon each attract the earth’s equatorial bulge, trying to bring it into alignment with themselves. This torque is counteracted by the rotation of the earth. The combination of these two forces is a slow rotation of the earth’s axis, which in turn results in a slow westward rotation of the equinoxes. Looking down from the north pole, the equinoxes would appear to be rotating in a clockwise motion. The equinoxes and poles complete a rotation every 25,800 years. The equinoxes move at a rate of about 50.27 arc seconds per year. This phenomenon in known as the precession of the equinoxes and is illustrated in the following image.
