A couple of questions. What does a errant satellite have to do with Mother Nature? ie Lunar eclipse and an earthquake?

Jeez, are all you guys so jaded by what you read here, that you can't see humor in anything? Maybe I should have said it was all Bush's fault and we should deport them all and fire all the overpaid cops and teachers. Oh and lawyers, too.

the whole thing with th esatellite and the events tied so close together just something is not right i dont normally pay attention to this stuff because i think that people just over react.
but for some reason this is very strange to me.

it seems strange that they shot the satellite down at the darkest moment of the lunar eclipse.

why are the natural events taking place in a sequence?

why shoot down a satellite?

we have had satellites in space for years and now all of a sudden we have to shoot down a satellite and why not shoot it before the eclipse.

or after

also the meteor that crashed on the 19th of this month in the northwest some how they can't find it.

but everybody saw it got pictures and everything.
whats the deal?

There is quite a strong correlation between quakes and lunar tides. The rift & drift trans & comp quakes tend to cluster around the spring tide point on the tide cycle.

The strongest probability is closest to perigee & spring tide when the range is highest.

The r/lx events are different. These occur when there is a maximum tide range which means there generally is BOTH Perigee & spring tide AND also usually cluster around Perihelion (Oct-Mar) when the range is at its greatest.
For r/lx look at Good friday 1964 Alaska & Boxing day 2004 (Both events rebounded the crust & also caused major crustal relaxation on the arc side of a megathrust along with a bloody great big tsunami).

As a result of lunar tide cycles, it also means that the probability is ALSO increased around a New moon.

The nevada quake was a rift & drift, the area NW. of the fault has gone closer to Oregon,(apparently it wants to settle over there).

Have a nice day: Ag
