Planetary alignment starting on Valentine’s Day has some earthquake forecasters on excessive alert, as they consider an enormous “mega-thrust” tremor is on the best way. Uranus, Mars, Venus and the solar are all mentioned to be tugging on the Earth, combining to unleash an enormous tremor. The planets may have a gravitational tug-of-war throughout our photo voltaic system and can pull from all sides on Earth’s tectonic plates.
The forecast was made by new age earthquake prediction web site Ditrianum, run by researcher Frank Hoogerbeets. He mentioned: “Essential lunar geometry afterward the 10th and early 11th has the potential of triggering bigger seismic exercise, probably into the mid 6 magnitude vary, even perhaps increased.
“Total, the second half of February, beginning across the 14th goes to be very essential with the potential of a mega-thrust earthquake between the 20th and 28th.”
Mr Hoogerbeets fails to state the place the “earthquake” would possibly hit, but when it have been to be a “mega-thrust”, it might absolutely be devastating for at the very least one nation, if not worldwide.
The Dutch researcher mentioned he reached his conclusion utilizing his Photo voltaic System Geometry Index (SSGI) which “is the computation of a dataset for a particular time frame of values given to particular geometric positions of the planets, the Moon and the Solar”.
He mentioned: “After three years of observations, it grew to become clear that some planetary geometry within the Photo voltaic System clearly tends to trigger a seismic enhance, whereas different geometry doesn’t.”
However consultants have persistently rejected Mr Hoogerbeets’ claims, saying that there isn’t any approach earthquakes may be predicted.
John Bellini, a geophysicist on the US Geological Survey (USGS) has mentioned: “We won’t predict or forecast earthquakes.
“Typically earlier than a big earthquake you may have a foreshock or two, however we do not know they’re foreshocks till the large one occurs.”
