Last night I looked up into the sky and saw the big bright moon waxing gibbous.  it was beautiful.  But also dangerous.  While admiring the moon, my thoughts turned to the knowledge that we often have earthquakes during the full or new moon.  I wondered if we’d have another quake soon.  Today, as the moon was 98% full, we had a strong 6.7 magnitude earthquake in Mexico’s Gulf of California. 

The details for Thursday October 21:
USGS reports magnitude-6.7 earthquake in Mexico

“The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude of the quake that hit at 11:53 a.m. (1:53 p.m. EDT, 1753 GMT) was calculated as 6.7.  The epicenter was about 65 miles (105 kilometers) south of Los Mochis and 85 miles (140 kilometers) northeast of La Paz in Baja California. It was at a relatively shallow depth of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers).”

On my side bar, if you scroll down, you will see a widget that gives the current phase of the moon.  It’s a handy thing to check out if you ever need to know what the moon’s phase is at the minute.  I did a screen print of it (pictured below) so we could see the phase at around the time of the earthquake. 

I fear soon we’ll have a truly massive earthquake and the moon will be responsible.  The moon is so far away but still dangerous.  At least the moon gives us a warning!

DANGEROUS FULL MOON UPDATE:  October 25 at 1642 GMT a 7.7 magnitude earthquake hit off the Indonesian island of Sumatra.  In 2004 a disastrous earthquake and tsunami hit the same island.   The moon was waxing gibbous 93% full.  October 23rd the full moon was at its peak. Here is the story: Major Earthquake Strikes off Indonesia’s Sumatra Island

MORE UPDATES:  More then 270 people were killed by a tsunami caused by the Indonesian earthquake. Indonesia tsunami deaths increase after Sumatra quake  And a volcano has begun erupting.  Indonesia Responds to Dual Natural Disasters   “And in Central Java, Mount Merapi, the country’s most active volcano, began spewing searing ash and debris late Tuesday.”

    It’s not only the moon. IT IS THE SUN, OUR STAR THE SUN that ultimately creates earthquakes and all the climate change issue. October 16th a sunspot(named 1112) erupted creating solar storm. Also Oct.17th there was new solar eruption from the same 1112 sunspot and we must know that it takes 3 days to these for reaching our planet Earth to create geomagnetic storm in our atmosphere and 1 day more to provoque thermonuclear reaction and this last one is what shakes tectonic plates. So next time that NASA or similar informs of a sunspot that ejected solar storm DIRECTED TOWARD US let’s wait 3 days for geomagnetics go wild here and ONE ADITIONAL DAY to see an earthquake whatever on Earth and if at the same time we have full or new moon the worst it could be.
