Sumatra-Andaman Earthquake was Positively Huge
At an estimated magnitude 9.1 to 9.3, the Sumatra-Andaman earthquake that occurred on the morning of December 26, 2004, was so massive that when trying to display the energy released as a linear value, it completely dwarfs all other values.
The above chart displays the Sumatra earthquake as a magnitude 9.3.
On the following charts I’ve artificially reduced the linear value displayed for the Sumatra Boxing Day earthquake, to make it possible to see other values on the chart.
At the present time I only have been able to track down the historical data for several months in 2004. These charts are generated from the data that is available from the Way Back Machine at Archive.org
Magnitude 8.1 – NORTH OF MACQUARIE ISLAND
2004 December 23 14:59:03 UTC
This is very close to the winter solstice and almost the exact same alignment between the Sun Earth and Orion as will we see this year on December 21st.
Magnitude 9.1 – OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA
2004 December 26 00:58:53 UTC
Its hard to imagine December 21, not being a day of major earthquakes!
On December 21 2010, both these alignments occur more precisely and virtually simultaneously.
This time however, the Sun, Earth, Moon alignment, coincides with a full Lunar eclipse.

These charts display the frequency of earthquakes at various magnitudes day by day for the second part of 2010.
While not every alignment coincides with major earthquakes, it would appear that every major earthquake coincides with an alignment.

One curiosity is the magnitude 7.7 Kepulauan Mentawai Indonesia earthquake on October 25th. It doesn’t fit any of the obvious alignments however it coincides with a perfect alignment between Earth, Venus and Mercury. Mercury however was on the opposite side of the Sun. Could be just a coincidental alignment or perhaps even alignments as seemingly insignificant as this do matter? Or perhaps it wasn’t a natural event…
Update: The Moon was not directly in line with Orion but about 2 days ahead of that alignment. So at first glance it would seem to not fit the pattern observed so far for many of the large earthquakes in the past 10 years.
However the Moon is in almost the exact same position as Japan’s magnitude 9.0 earthquake on March 11 2001 and the magnitude 8.1 earthquake North of Macquarie Island on December 23rd 2004. That is within 1 hour over a period of 30 days or half a degree.

Magnitude 7.7 Kepulauan Mentawai Indonesia
The December 21st Bonin Island earthquake occurred virtually on the winter solstice and just hours after the full lunar eclipse.
This earthquake like the October 25th earthquake in Indonesia, registered as massive movements on seismographs around the world. The world wide plate movements or world wide wobble continued for over 2 hours. Over 50 magnitude 5 earthquakes were recorded in this location within 24 hours of the quake.

Magnitude 7.3 earthquake VANUATU REGION December 25, 2010 at 13:16 UTC
This is will probably be the last large earthquake of the year as the Earth moves out of the Sun, Earth, Black Sun alignment.
The total earthquake energy each day is calculated using the Richter and Gutenberg seismic energy method. Data source is the USGS
Energy = 10^(11.8+1.5*Magnitude)
The x axis displays energy in Joules x 10^-21. This value is also displayed as a logarithmic value using the same Richter and Gutenberg seismic energy method. The log value is then multiplied by a factor 100 and a value of 525 subtracted to keep it within a reasonable range on the chart. The log values are not intended to be read directly from the chart but are there to emphasize the fluctuations in energy released by earthquakes each day.
The total earthquakes on each day is based on the data from the USGS which includes earthquakes over magnitude 2.5 within the US and 3.5 worldwide.
