ZetaTalk: Severe Wobble
written September 30, 2009
At noon today, I checked my 2 compasses and saw that they had switched from holding at due North for many days to 60 degrees West of North. A huge swing! Then a couple hours later, the 8.3 quake hit Samoa. A big wobble must of occurred and the compasses reflected the change. Coincidence? Checked the Magnetosphere Simulator site and the S Pole (red) seems to have disappeared! It was shrinking when the 8.3 hit in Samoa around 17:00 UTC on September 29, but 12 hours later was completely gone!
