Hello "2010 GA6". Are you the cause of the North Western Pacific Earthquakes?

So I've recently been getting into asteroid tracking and there's an astroid called "2010 GA6" that's going to pass near earth on April 6. Here's the link to see the nasa story: here.
The video for viewing entertainment.



If you notice that right around today is when the asteroid passes the line that connects and extends from the sun and the earth. If the earth, the moon, the sun and the asteroid were to all align they could potentially form a disturbing gravity trench which could cause the earthquakes and tsunamis related to North Western Pacific regions today. This is something I'm still looking into but i just wanted to share my thoughts while they were developing.

What's a gravity trench?

thats pretty nifty, but i dont see how something smaller than a moon, planet or star could have any sort of gravitational effects on earth. maybe im just retarded

If you're using the term to mean what I think you are, then a "gravity trench" is formed every lunar and solar eclipse, and those certainly aren't catastrophic. There is no possible correlation between any asteroid and seismic activity...unless it impacts, but that's another issue altogether.

Hi Mallard,

Thank you for your post.

I do remember someone saying that our Solar System was about to pass through a very busy part of the galaxy with a lot of 'space debris', I wish I could remember the exact wording, he did a very much better job than I can.

Is that correct, or is it that we have not in the past been able to see all the masses travelling through space and some areas are literally more busy or denser than others?

At the moment many people are considering the possibility of a largish planet coming in but is it likely to be more smaller objects nipping past?

Sorry to sound a bit simplistic, although I take an interest in space, its such a vast and specialised subject.

A gravity trench is a weird planetary effect that is created between two planets in space. There's some weird effects that happens when things get between it but more or less it's just a ray between two planets extending from each side.

I wouldn't ever use language so harsh about myself friend, even if you're just being ironic. You're right that something smaller than the moon probably wouldn't do much of anything, I didn't catch that info yet.

I've heard the same thing that we're passing through a rough part of the solar system, but I hadn't heard anyone proposing that it's just cause we can see more, although that's also possibly true.
