On June 12 2010, at 11:16 GMT, the moon was at its peak new moon. When the moon is full or new, it is lined up with the sun and earth. During the full moon the sun illuminates the entire surface of the moon since it is lined up with the sun behind the earth. During the new moon the moon is covered in darkness since the moon is out in front facing the sun and we only see the moon’s darkened side.
Recently I’ve noticed earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occurring right around the new and full moon. I noticed this when the tragic Haiti earthquake occurred shortly before a solar eclipse. And the phase of the moon has once again predicted a 7+-magnitude earthquake. On the evening of the June 12, during the new moon, at 19:26 GMT a 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck the Indian Ocean triggering tsunami warnings. 7.5 is a pretty strong quake. Here is the story:
NEW DELHI (AFP) – A 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck under the Indian Ocean on Sunday, triggering a tsunami watch for nearby islands and causing tremors reportedly felt along India’s eastern seaboard.
With all the talk about the end of the world on 2012, and the silly movie of the same name, we might wonder if an alignment of celestial bodies can indeed trigger earth changes. Perhaps not on a scale as imagined, but it seems the moon is pretty effective in shaking and quaking planet earth when it is lined up with the sun. It will be interesting to see if this continues.
Here is what I collected so far: http://occultview.com/category/moon/
I will be on watch!
