When people on ATS start talking about alignments it is almost immidiately accepted that alignments amplify gravity. The first I have every heard of this phenomenon is while following the nibiru stories. Is there actually any science to back this up? Or should we instantly dismiss any thread that mentions alignments altering gravity?
1976: The British astronomer Patrick Moore announced on BBC Radio 2 that at 9:47 AM a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event was going to occur that listeners could experience in their very own homes. The planet Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, temporarily causing a gravitational alignment that would counteract and lessen the Earth's own gravity. Moore told his listeners that if they jumped in the air at the exact moment that this planetary alignment occurred, they would experience a strange floating sensation. When 9:47 AM arrived, BBC2 began to receive hundreds of phone calls from listeners claiming to have felt the sensation. One woman even reported that she and her eleven friends had risen from their chairs and floated around the room.
Within a week of these alignments, there was always an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0+
