In OZ there has been no compass movement.North is still north.
However there are many here keeping tabs on this it is good to report movement so we can all check.
When we all check and we all have movement that will be one very interesting thread.

Can you sumerize it for me, I hate reading little shyza and searching little shyza


Thanx, VV6


We are having a Pole Shift, you need to read it yourself, I'm sorry, but it is just too much for me to summarize, it is not going to be pleasant and you should probably prepare for it. Wish I could help more but it is very complex. The site I sent has everything you need to know on it, there are also a lot of other sites that can explain what is happening.
Good luck....

I didn't use a compass but the sun and the moon are still coming up in the same directions they usually do. Some one needs to tell the watchman up stair to turn off the night light after 8. (Midnight sun right around the bend). One thing that did strike me as odd was seeing a catipiller out on friday. Little early for this time of year. Unusually warm winter from what I was told by the natives.

The Earth's magnetic field is changing at an increasing rate, throwing off airports and altering the aurora borealis -- and its effect on ordinary compasses could mean the difference between homeward bound and hopelessly lost.

Earth’s northernmost magnetic point -- or magnetic north -- is distinct from its geographic North Pole, and scientists have long known that the magnetic poles are on the move.

[...snip...]

Since compasses rely on magnetic north to point you in the right way up the trail, the average $2-dollar model could very well point you in the wrong direction. Depending on location and journey length, unaware hikers or boaters could find themselves hundreds of miles off course if they don’t calibrate for the shift, experts said.

[...snip...]

But don't touch that calibration dial just yet: The accuracy of compasses fluctuates with the field, he said, meaning compasses are more or less accurate depending on where you use them.
“It's different at different places on the earth,” Love said.

I broke out my compass and there was no change in North at all in the Southern US. Haven't had to make any adjustments at all.

I don't know what this means but if you go to Realtime Plot
and select 500nT and below you will see that AK plots are fluctuating while rest are flat.
Looking at the map mostly everything on one side of AK is playing up and on the other is normal. Something to think of.

Good place to start is with the Brits and the current location of magnetic north.

www.geomag.bgs.ac.uk...

Next place would be:.

www.ngdc.noaa.gov...

Run the software, put in your elevation and lat&long and it'll tell you the field strength in your area. Compare that to what is expected by the BGGM model and you can tell if you've got a magnetic anomoly.

And I guess my point is, you're running a compass thats seeking magnetic north. PA and Virginia get magnetic anomolies all the time which jack with finding magnetic north.

I'm not saying that the pole hasn't shifted or whatever.

I'm in Ireland and my compass seems to be about 15 degrees off too but to the WEST. My mother is a big feng shui fan so will have notes on all the directions for her house, will see if her readings are off too later today and get back to you.

Couldn't sleep, so decided to see what's going on at ATS....This thread caught my eye, so figured I see for myself....Got two compasses - one an inexpensive little thing, the other much better quality. Took them outside, set them atop a plastic storage bin & waited....

A little twitchy to begin, but settled down pointing the way toward north, so I figured I was going to post ALL NORMAL readings for Pickens, SC, but while I was waiting for my two pups to visit the bushes, I started watching the cloud cover & mourning that the SuperMoon wasn't visible tonight....had a little storm front move through at sunset, so the wind has been gusty since....anyway, as the hounds & I were heading back into the house, I started to pick up the compasses & nearly had to visit the shrubbery myself...

Both were way off, the cheap one more so than the good one...It was 42 degrees off to the east, while the other was 22 degrees out, but the odd thing was that they gave even more erractic readings whenever the wind picked up. These are sealed compasses, no needle on a cork that any puff of air might throw off. I've never seen anything like it, so I deliberately moved to several spots, in the wind, out of it, etc...& each time, after a few minutes, similiar incorrect readings, but the needle was really reactive whenever the breeze got stronger.

Haven't seen anyone else mention other weather conditions, so don't know if this may be something to look at or if it's just an anomaly within an anomaly, but I do know after living here all my life which direction is which, & I'm telling you, north just isn't where these things were pointing...

Ok when I get back home I am giong to grab my compass (military) and check this out. I will let you know what its like in Alaska. Although on a side note, I had to reset my electric compass in my truck about a month back it was showing N as E also... hmmm. Ok now I MUST break out my real compass and give it a whirl.

Sorry, why are people posting as if this is a mystery?

Again: This is a known and expected phenomenon.

Sonora reporting in here. I sadly don't have a compass handy nor did I see the video on how to make one. But in the spirit of cooperation, and as an extra excuse to go outside and climb up onto my RV and look at the moon I headed outside by the light of a full moon and checked for the north star Polaris. I also whipped out my 7X20 binoculars to take a good look at it and as well at the moon, but that burned my eyes it was so bright. I can inform everyone that while I cannot confirm compass location of north, the north star is still in the north where it always was.

The pole-shift will not happen in one day....

I recently read an article on the magnetic north pole is currently over Russia. From what I understand, the poles have been shifting at a rate of 25 miles a year, but I don't know how long it has been shifting at this speed. I will try to find the article and post the source that I got this information. Sorry if somebody already replied with the same info.

mine works fine, north is still north!

If any one in the UK has an Ordnance Survey Map, latest edition you can tell what the current Mag N Offset is from True north.

When I was using them regularly circa 1993 It was always 8 deg offset to the east.

Would be interesting to know what it is now. But lets not pretend that magnetic north is a static point Its just not.

The thing about it affecting airport runway designations is also not new.

Just to really freak you all out, did you know that aircraft have to have their navigation databases updated every 28 days in order to keep on top on minor changes like this, and tectonic changes.

We are part of a living world folks. It is that simple.

Im going out out a limb here. My compasses are working normal. Both are adjusted for declination angle. For example. I know here in seattle the declination is 18 degrees East. Everybody's compass is adjusted for declination, RIGHT?
It matters. Otherwise when I looked at mine if they were not adjusted I might be inclined to think that its off by 15 degrees, which a lot of people are seeing. Check your local declination angle and double check your compass
