Did the Full Lunar Eclipse December 21 2010 Cause any Earthquakes?
It would seem not, however there was a “World Wide Wobble” event on December 20th at around 6:40 pm UTC
You may not have felt it but all the seismographs around world recorded a big movement for over an hour.
The only notable earthquake that coincided with this world wide wobble event was the Magnitude 6.5 – SOUTHEASTERN IRAN 2010 December 20 18:41:59 UTC
The last time that all the seismographs went off like this was during the magnitude 7.7 earthquake in Kepuluan Mentawai Indonesia on October 25 2010. However on that occasion the almost hour long wobble left virtually every seismograph almost completely black with ink.
There is still the risk of a large earthquake based upon previous Earth, Moon, Orion (Black Sun) alignments such as the magnitude 8.1 earthquake north of Macquarie Island on December 23rd 2004.
Or the magnitude 7.3, 7.6 and 7.4 series near Mindanao, Philippines on July 23rd 2010.
Earth and Moon Alignment at the time of the Irian Earthqake and World Wide Wobble
The image captured from Celestia shows the position of the Earth relative to the Sun at the time of the magnitude 6.5 earthquake in Southeastern Iran.
- The left hand side of the image looking down on the Solar System with the Earth at the top of the picture.
- The lower right hand side is zoomed in to show the position of the Moon at this moment.
- The top right hand side is the view of the Earth and Moon from the perspective of the Sun. The Earth and Moon are both in an alignment which is consistent with most of the major earthquakes of this century.
It won’t be until after December 26th that the Earth will have moved out of the danger zone.
