Ok so I have been looking into this let lines theory and noticed that in Google Earth, when you use the real time USGS function it shows pressure points where plates are pushing up against one another and the arrows indicate the direction, which seem to match up with the ley lines pretty well.

That however is not why I am posting. I discovered an interesting feature that I think could be put to very good use here. That is, once you have the USGS layer on, switch over to sky mode and it will switch over however it keeps that data in sky mode so that you can actually pin point the earthquakes and what stars, planets or constellations may be in the area. It keeps up the lines for the plate boundaries, so I am thinking that that might be interesting to look at and compare to constellations etc.

Right now, I have located the Earthquake from earlier and I am trying to figure out how to go back in time and match it up with the exact time of the quake.

Download Stellarium, if you don't have it already. put in the coordinates and you can set the time and date you want.

Think I will do that myself.

Good Luck, because i don't have a clue how to do that.

BTW I don't think Stelluirm will be able to do what he's trying to do, he's trying line the earthquake points with the planet points. That's if I read that correctly.

Thats a good idea I think I will give it a try.

The only downfall though is that I will lose my overlays.
Unless there is a way to adjust the time in Google Sky.

Yeah basically to compare the overlays with the sky.

Using Stellarium this is what I came up with. Now if only I could figure out a way to use those overlays that would be cool.

In any case you should notice this was around noon exactly. Visible planets include Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, the sun and moon.

Heres a sample of how the overlays might look.

Now that looks pretty cool and interesting.

Hey Honeycomb.
Very interesting idea, but I fail to understand your goal.
Are you trying to correlate earthquakes with leylines and celestial objects ?

Otherwise, this is a cool feature in google earth that I was not aware of. Good find.

Yes, I think that is what he's trying do.
