New Study proves link between Moon Phases and Earthquakes
This isn't news for any astrologer. As above, so below. The Moon affects the tides, it affects the human body (we're just big bags of water really), and now scientists can prove how the Moon and its phases affect the actual ground we stand on.
HOLLISTER (CBS SF) — A new study that says there may be a link between earthquakes and the moon and sun could change the way scientists study tectonic plates.
Like most of California, Hollister is on shaky ground. And with a swarm of numerous small earthquakes over the last few days.The ground is shakier than normal.
“The internet said there were 18, but I only felt four,” said Hollister resident Rori Nelson. “They were short of rolling quakes, like someone was nudging you.”
But scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey say there is much more going on below the surface than just the earthquakes you can feel.
A new study says much smaller quakes are happening deep down below the earth’s crust almost on a regular schedule that are tied to the phases of the moon.
Just as the moon’s gravitational pull affects the ocean tides, scientists say they now have hard data to show how it has the same effect on hard ground. Continue here
