For over a 100 years it was believed that it was an iceberg that sank the Titanic. There have of course been many conspiracy theories around it too, but it seems scientists have discovered that it was indeed the moon, that might have caused this fateful sinking of the Titanic.

It was actually three months before the Titanic sank, that the freaky lunar event, put the iceberg on a collision course with the Titanic.


An incredibly rare combination of astronomical factors including the closest approach of the moon to Earth in 1,400 years caused an unusually high tide in January 1912, researchers found.
This once-in-a-lifetime swell would have swept a vast field of icebergs from their normal resting place off the coast of Canada and caused them to drift further south.


It would have taken those icebergs almost exactly three months to reach the path the Titanic sailed on.
So although it is still believed that the iceberg did indeed sink the Titanic, the very rare lunar event, can be used to explain why there was so many icebergs in that region at the time of its sinking.


On January 4, 1912 the Moon came closer to Earth than at any point in the previous 1,400 years, and reached its nearest point within just six minutes of a full moon. This rare coincidence happened just a day after the Earth made its closest annual approach to the sun, and the freak combination of factors against overwhelming odds caused a record spring tide.

It would appear that almost everything worked against the Titanic on her maiden voyage. I would even say it was fate that caused this dramatic event.

I think it's ridiculous to even mention such things, seems pointless and doesn't really make a lick of sense. I'm surprised they didn't try to blame aliens.

whats crazy is there was a book written before the titanic sunk that almost explained the titanic story to T. name of the ship in the book The TITAN

Why? All the facts is there to show the alignment, the big tide, which might have moved the icebergs. This is rather far removed from blaming aliens, or some other ridiculous theory.

So that's the only noticeable occurrence from that particular date? The moon moved icebergs? Really? I'd believe a Russian torpedo story over the moon helping to sink the Titanic.

Facts show the alignment, but speculation invokes specific involvement. It's info-tainment, nothing relevant to anything substantial. It's like theory porn for the bored conspiracy minded.

Sometimes the most mundane explanation is the correct one.

Why the need to believe in some conspiracy theory regarding the sinking of the Titanic, while this explanation seems to be as credible as any other.? Sure its not as flashy or exciting, but it does make sense.

It could of been all the moon's fault. I mean maybe they were all too busy looking at the moon instead of paying attention to where they were going.

i find it funny that the launched it right on time with such an alignment..... ritual purposes?
