Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.
http://star.arm.ac.uk/preprints/2009/539.pdf

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

Nov 28: Lunar Eclipse and Possible MegaQuake

Nov 28: Lunar Eclipse and Possible MegaQuake

This is the closest date for an eclipse to the end of the Mayan calendar. And according to my research, lunar eclipses (and a day or so either side) have double the odds of a major earthquake compared to the average. While most earthquake experts will tell you a megaquake of 10+ cannot happen, I consider it to be a possibility.
Nov 28 is the date I am most concerned about, besides Dec 21. But don’t be overly alarmed, I reckon it would be impossible for the Mayan calendar to be solely an earthquake prediction. That doesn’t mean there wouldn’t be an earthquake, it just means that something else would be triggering the quake. Patrick Geryl suggests the Sun is the trigger.

Rare Australian Earthquakes

Rare Australian Earthquakes

Possibly trigger by the recent lunar eclipse, today there were two 4.2 magnitude earthquakes in Australia, in a region that rarely has any seismic activity:
The centre’s director Kevin McCue said these were the first earthquakes greater than magnitude 4 to strike inland northern NSW since December 1969, when a magnitude 5 quake struck near Coonabarabran.
Mr McCue said the Friday night quakes were felt as far as Coonabarabran, 120km from the epicentre, as well as in Tamworth and Gunnedah.
“It’s unusual to have an earthquake of this size.”

Britton LaRoche: Lunar Eclipse Could Cause Tokai Quake

Britton LaRoche: Lunar Eclipse Could Cause Tokai Quake

From studying centuries of earthquake records, Japanese geologists have mapped out segments of the subduction zone that seem to rupture regularly and repeatedly. The part southwest of Tokyo, underlying the coast around Suruga Bay, is called the Tokai segment.
The Tokai segment last ruptured in 1854, and before that in 1707. Both events were great earthquakes of magnitude 8.4. The segment ruptured in comparable events in 1605 and in 1498. The pattern is pretty stark: a Tokai earthquake has happened about every 110 years, plus or minus 33 years. As of 2005, it has been 151 years and counting.
[Source: About.com]
Shinichi Sakai from University of Tokyo predicted on 23. January 2012 probability of major earthquake during next four years is 70% and during 30 years is 98%.

So it looks like a case of not if, but when. Well Britton LaRoche has been studying historical earthquake records, and like myself he has …

Lunar Eclipse, June 4 = Earthquakes?

May 31, 2012 – 1:58 am | No Comment
Lunar Eclipse, June 4 = Earthquakes?

Last year I undertook a long and tedious task that seemingly nobody else has done. I checked every lunar and solar eclipse since 1973, and I checked them against every earthquake measuring 6.5 or greater in magnitude. I would have gone further back, but that’s the limit for comprehensive USGS records.
For solar eclipses, there was a slight increase of major earthquakes, but not enough to make it worthy of further investigation. Lunar eclipses were quite different, with the odds of a major earthquake doubling within a few days:
M6.5+ … normal is an average of one every 8.4 days
Within four days of a lunar eclipse, averages one every 7.26 days
Within one day of a lunar eclipse, averages one every 5.87 days
M7.5+ … normal is an average of one every 73.8 days
Within twenty days of a lunar eclipse, averages one every 51.6 days
Within four days of a lunar eclipse, averages one every …

Earthquake Alert: Lunar Eclipse on Saturday

Earthquake Alert: Lunar Eclipse on Saturday

According to my research, the five days either side of a lunar eclipse are twice as likely to have a major earthquake – the type that cause deaths and appear on the evening news. We haven’t a major one for a while, so conditions are ripe, especially seeing as it is a total eclipse.
Western Australia just had a 5.1 quake, near the Murion Islands. Cornwall in the UK had a 2.2 quake, which is small but big news for them.
Quakes of magnitude 6.5+ occur on average once a week, yet the last was more than 2 weeks ago. Combined with the knowledge that within 4 days of a lunar eclipse we are almost twice as likely to receive a 7.5+ quake, we could be in for a big one.

Eclipse Quakes in Melbourne, Auckland & Taupo

Eclipse Quakes in Melbourne, Auckland & Taupo

While lunar eclipses tend to trigger major quakes, we have been seeing solar eclipses (July 1) setting off quakes in places that don’t usually get them. On Friday Auckland had a 2.9 quake – unusual for that part of New Zealand and the largest they have received in four years. Scientists said was not associated with any known faults, and although it was beneath Auckland’s volcanoes, normally a cluster of quakes would be signs of unrest. Fingers crossed on that!
Today there were quakes on both sides of the Tasman Sea. Melbourne felt a 4.4 quake with an epicenter 120 kms away. This is the biggest we have received in 44 years. Yep, I live in Melbourne and hopefully Australia is still one of the safest places in the world…
Lake Taupo in New Zealand (which by the way is a supervolcano!) had their biggest in a decade, and it was felt …

Piers Corbyn: Red Alert until July 2nd

Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction.com has forecast the following for the period of June 27-July 2, with the greatest likelihood July 1-2:

Major Earthquake
Volcanism
Tornadoes and Tornado Swarms
Other Extreme Weather

His methodology is not clear, but it might not be a coincidence that we will be having a partial solar eclipse on July 1. While solar eclipses are correlated with greater likelihood of major earthquakes, my research indicates that the real risk lies with lunar eclipses. Still, a few good quakes are all solar eclipses need to be equally ranked.
If you are curious about the man and his predictions, check out this recent interview from Al Jazeera TV:

6.6M Earthquake in Papua New Guinea

June 16, 2011 – 11:14 am | No Comment
6.6M Earthquake in Papua New Guinea

This is the first 6.5+ earthquake in 30 days, highlighting how the average of every 6 days doesn’t mean they will be evenly spaced, they can occur in bunches, or be absent for quite some time.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 6.6-magnitude quake struck Thursday just off the island of New Britain. It was at a depth of 13 miles (22 kilometers).
The quake comes just 5 hours after the lunar eclipse – strong earthquakes are up to twice as likely to occur around lunar eclipses. Hopefully if a larger quake occurs in the next day or so, it doesn’t harm anyone.

Central Lunar Eclipse in 5 Days

Central Lunar Eclipse in 5 Days

Obviously the Earth is much bigger than the Moon, so a lunar eclipse doesn’t require a precise alignment. When the moon passes in front of the center of the Earth’s shadow, it is called a central total lunar eclipse. The last of these was on August 28 2007, the one of interest to us is on June 15 2011, and the next will be on July 27, 2018.

Could we be building up to a big quake? Quakes of magnitude 6.5+ occur on average once a week, yet the last was more than 3 weeks ago. Combined with the knowledge that within 4 days of a lunar eclipse we are almost twice as likely to receive a 7.5+ quake, it sounds ominous… However there are no certainties. Just like rolling a pair of dice – even though the most likely resulting total is a 7, that doesn’t mean it will happen.

Normally, on average, there is one every 6.8 days. Statistically this isn’t so strange – next month we might have seven, and it all balances out.
However, with solar eclipses due on June 1 and July 1, and a lunar eclipse in-between (June 15), there is an eerie feeling of calm before the storm.
Speaking of storm, many scientists have concluded that some earthquakes do arrive in clusters, or earthquake storms. A mega-quake in 2012 could set off a series of storms. I’ve mentioned this in my new article Eclipses and Earthquakes, where I reiterate that during a lunar eclipse strong earthquakes are twice as likely …

Lunar Eclipses Are Dangerous Times

Lunar Eclipses Are Dangerous Times

I’ve just been through the tedious task of checking every lunar and solar eclipse since 1973 ( as far back as the USGS records reliably go), against every earthquake measuring 6.5, 7.0, 7.5 and 8.0 in magnitude. For solar eclipses the odds of an earthquake were slightly higher than average, but not enough to raise alarm bells.
Lunar eclipses do have an effect. I looked at total and partial lunar eclipses, and compared them to average earthquake rates, from Jan 1973 until the present:
M6.5+ … normal is an average of one every 8.4 days
Within four days of a lunar eclipse, averages one every 7.26 days
Within one day of a lunar eclipse, averages one every 5.87 days
M7.5+ … normal is an average of one every 73.8 days
Within twenty days of a lunar eclipse, averages one every 51.6 days
Within four days of a lunar eclipse, averages one every 41.25 days
Within one day of …

Sun-Moon-Earth Magnetic Relationship

Sun-Moon-Earth Magnetic Relationship

For most people, the moon is a lump of barren rock that provides us with moonlight, and is the cause of tides. Along with that, we know that gravity is less on the moon, allowing astronauts to take floating steps. Few people know that our moon has a magnetic field, just like the Sun and Earth have – meaning it isn’t as dead as it appears. These snippets are from Wikipedia, which states that the information is still speculative:

Roughly once every Lunar orbit, the Moon passes through Earth’s magnetotail for approximately 6 days around full moon. More here.
Interaction with the plasma sheet causes the Moon’s surface to become negatively charged.
The moon’s dayside is lightly charged, while the nightside is strongly charged

The relationship is interesting. We have the Sun which has a magnetic reversal every 11 years or so, and in-between cycles the magnetic field varies quite a lot. We have …

Birds, Fish and Crabs Dying in Great Numbers

Birds, Fish and Crabs Dying in Great Numbers

There’s a lot of talk about these (perhaps) mysterious deaths, both online in conspiracy forums, and in mainstream media. A good summary of all the events is at News.com.au. At this stage, I think the only way we’ll be able to solve this (if it needs solving) is for it to happen again, in great numbers around the world. Here are what I think are leading contenders for why:

A solar and lunar eclipse within a short time-frame. Possibly in conjunction with changes with the Sun, or within our planet, that could lead to a geomagnetic reversal. In which case things will only get worse. Proof could come in the 6 weeks surrounding June 15 2011 – the period has three eclipses.
HAARP. This US Govt. project gets blamed for many strange occurrences. I wouldn’t be surprised if Russia has a HAARP of their own. Perhaps they have timed these events to …
