It sure doesn't look to me like this follows New Madrid at all. I put the approximate location of the fault on the map.

It's almost like it's something in the center of the U.S. that has a distinct range.

You're right!
I am in Tampa, Florida (USA).
And my compass is also showing wrong.
If I point it no North, it right now.. shows 52 degrees instead!

Good find!

Update: Now, 15 minutes later. It shows 33 degrees wrong.
It really is changing.
I am setting up a fixed compass too.
This need to be monitored.

Can someone post a picture or video of what their compass is doing? Not calling anyone specific out, but far too often I have seen people jump on the "omg me too!" train just to try and increase the hysteria level.

SoB! Call it intuition... but the other day I brought my telescope compass in here to put on my desk to watch for anomalies... I havnt gave it much thought in 2 days, but as I look at it now ,the damned thing says that north is where west north west used to be!

ok.. i just read all 19 pages
im in Mminneapolis,MN..the declination around here is approx 1degree east. i just went for a walk around the neighborhood and compass is still correct. definatley is influenced by transforms and vehicles but nothing......yet.

awsome thread
we are sorta getting a 'baseline' for some numbers and it will be interesting to see how the readings change over time.

another thought..solar flares...anybody got a link to recent solar flare activity? put that together with the EQ data......

I think it was Michael Scallion that discussed pole shift as a series of magnetic "pools" that are dispersed. The main shift would occur when they all joined. Kinda like a group of magnets that get too close and then jump on each other.

With that being said, I was amazed several years ago when I observed water going the drain COUNTER clockwise. I'm in Texas. That should only happen in Australia. I checked at other friends houses and got the same result (and weird looks from friends
).

I was talking to a freind in california and mentioned it. he told me I was nuts. I told him to fly his happy ass down here and bet dinner on it.

He eventuallly arrived, went to the sink and was also amazed. My wife and I had our dinner paid for that night!

This sounds likek one of those incidents. Some folks are on effected zones and some arent.

i just grabbed my expensive compass from my wilderness survival kit. It's reading the same thing as my telescope compass...showing N around where NW used to be...

Ughhh yea...it counts...cause it is an app...and it SHOULD be pointing the right way...NOT the same as the real compasses...so yea...I would say it counts...considering some real compasses are pointing east, and app compasses...that defiantly means there is something going on I would think...just saying...

Interesting thread. Here in New Mexico, I put my magnetic compass next to my iPhone compass and they are in agreement. North hasn't moved.

Maybe magnetic north has drifted south away from us on the west side of the U.S., so that our compasses still point north, while the farther east you go, magnetic north moves south relative to your position? I can't imagine the discrepancy would be that great, though. Globally speaking, New Jersey and California aren't that far apart.

Created an account to tell what happened/ what is happening here in Queens, NY.

When I read this thread title, I thought I was going to read some entertaining half-truth, but in the sake of sanity, I decided to check my iphone compass. I was shocked to see "North" off quite some ways to the east. I didn't measure exactly, but it was at least 30 to 40 degrees to the East.

I then started the map application and lo and behold, North was North! When I tried running the compass again to verify the first reading, North was North.

I decided to place the phone on a flat surface away from interference and "North" has been fluctuating by about 10 degrees for the last hour. I'm not sure what to conclude of this. I know there is an error margin in compass, but 10 degrees seems very wide.

What 'secrets' would those be Oracle??? Military ones perhaps??? To 'protect us??? Ok.....

I wasn't able to locate my old seldom used compass, but for what it's worth I made the boy scout version (cork and needle) placed it in the center of a room (way to windy outside when I tried to use it there) and the needle seems to very slowly rotate each time to the direct north facing wall of my home (my house is purposely placed south facing for passive solar gain). I'm posting from central Missouri, I know my little experiment could be getting interference from wires (etc.) so maybe not valid, I'll repost later when and after I borrow a working compass.

I just had a thought. For those of us in Europe, perhaps the French, British and American forces having taken out Gadhafi's air defences and *communications* has disrupted satellite signals, for those using smartphone compasses. Surely knocking some signals around like that would have some kind of disruptive effect since smartphones use GPS?

Even a cheap compass will pick up the weakest magnetic interference. Not saying that you are not measuring a pole shift, but try this:

Place your compass on a flat surface, aligned with the NS. If you think your compass will show N in a different place, align it anyway so the needle and markings match on a NS line.

Then, pass above the compass at around 5 inches above its glass, while holding a cell phone, or even a battery operated wrist watch. Play with the shifts


If you have a TV set inside an entertainment center, place the compass on its surface and slide it slowly over the entire surface. It will begin spinning even if your TV is OFF.

Close your laptop (after you turn it OFF) then place the compass on top of it. Move it around and you'll see not only spinning of the compass' needle, but also titling as if the Earth's axis has titled..

Before jumping to conclusions, make sure the reading you take are 100% interference free from any artificial or even natural weak magnetic fields. Look up how easy it actually is to generate a magnetic field anywhere there is electricity (aka wires, underground cables, shallow underground running water, etc.)

Also, if you're measuring from your car, most likely you will get slight variations.

My compass points to N where N should be. And I'm in S. Illinois.
Cheers.

During a Polar Shift (wich takes 100 to 1000 years),
You get several North and South poles.

See here, for illustration:
www.dailycommonsense.com...

What me might have seen, is the creation of a second magnetic North Pole, in central north east USA?

I am also in Northeast OH. We are avid hunters and use the compass all the time going into the woods. I called my brother and talked to my dad. We all agree its about 15% off from where is has been. OLD N is closer to NE now. We use a North Land marking going into the woods. There is some maps showing the speed of shift since 1993 , but there has been some big moves in the last year. Im not a complete weather expert, but follow the patterns. I would think this will bring some big weather events for the hills of california down the road.

I diddn't read the whole tread, only the first

completely bull#t

the noth is still the north and hasn't moved lately, atleast not noticeble enough for "normal" people with small compasses

so stop with making such a rediculous treads

people get scared

Just reporting in, NE Ohio, with my data. I have an Evo smart phone, with both the compass app and the tricorder app, and I've locked signal with 6 gps satellites. I'm showing 20 degrees off from true north, to the east as well. Strange thing is, the needle will occasionally drift to true north, then wildly fluctuate nw, then settle back to the 20 deg "off" reading. I've recalibrated the magnetometer (built-in), and the same pattern emerges, but mostly it points 20 east of north.

I was just out on a 2.2 mile hike a week ago, and used it then to find my way out and back again. It shouldn't be acting that strange. Something is going, definitely fluctuations in the earth's magnetic field.

There's currently a solar flare with RF Flux: 89, and a r=8.4M km.

I have been watching this thread since last night and thought I would chime in. I am in North Idaho and the compass is reading North as North. Although, last night it was staying steady and not moving, today it keeps bouncing back and forth a degree.

It is sitting on a flat non movable surface and it is an app on the droid. I need to find one of our other compasses.
