About Ditrianum

Ditrianum is a non-profit organization with a primary focus on seismic activity related to interplanetary influences. Based in the Netherlands, Ditrianum was founded in 2002 by Frank Hoogerbeets who since childhood had a great interest in the solar system and the planets.

In the late 80s and early 90s Frank tried to find a possible correlation between the position of the planets and large seismic movement on Earth. But resources were limited in a time when data had to be collected manually, while astronomy software was (and still is) focused mainly on geocentric observations.

Frank then changed gears and began to study geometry and number theory. Without realizing it, this study became the groundwork for what he later termed "Earth Harmonics", the relationship between geometry with earth rotations and large earthquakes. Frank discovered this geometry related to large earthquakes in the first months of 2013.

Frank explains: "At first I tried to predict large earthquakes with magnitude 8 and higher based on these Earth Harmonics. However, this proved to be more difficult than I thought, as I was unable to anticipate the magnitude 8.3 earthquake that occurred on 24 May 2013 under the Sea of Okhotsk. But this event was an important piece of the puzzle."

Based on these Earth Harmonics Frank successfully isolated 1 April 2014 as one of the possible dates for a magnitude 8+ earthquake. This time his anticipation appeared to be correct when a magnitude 8.2 earthquake occurred on the very same day in Chile.

Frank adds: "This was an important confirmation, but the Earth Harmonics alone were not enough, as they were leaving me with too many options. I needed more information in order to become more precise."

The next piece of the puzzle was found on 23 June 2014, when three strong magnitude 6 earthquakes occurred in the South Pacific, followed by three more in the North Pacific peaking magnitude 7.9. Frank adds: "This was a very sudden huge seismic increase in an otherwise quiet month. My first thought was: where did this energy come from? This is when I looked at the planets for the first time using solar system simulation software. It was a true revelation when I found that no less than three planetary alignments converged around that day."

A subsequent study revealed that indeed large earthquakes in the past occurred close to but usually just after planets in the Solar System aligned. For example, the largest earthquake on record, the magnitude 9.5 earthquake on 22 May 1960, occurred two days after Mars, Mercury and Uranus aligned. Likewise, the magnitude 9.2 earthquake in Alaska on 28 March 1964 also occurred just after Mars, Mercury and Uranus aligned, this time joined by Venus. Another example is the magnitude 9.0 earthquake on 27 January 1700 at Cascadia, that occurred when Earth lined up with Mercury and Jupiter while Mercury was also aligned with the Sun and Venus.

Frank adds: "The problem with all astronomy and astrology software is that computation of planetary positions is limited to geocentric and heliocentric coordinates only. As a result, any alignment of planets not involving the Earth or the Sun, like in 1960 and 1964, goes unnoticed.

After several months of careful study, Frank made his first public earthquake forecast on 20 April 2015 on Facebook, in which he said that the time from 22 to 27 April would be more critical because of specific planetary positions. Indeed, on 25 April 2015 a magnitude 7.8 earthquake occurred in Nepal.

Motivated by this successful forecast, Frank published his first earthquake forecast video on 29 April 2015 with a warning for possible large seismic activity around 28 May 2015. He specifically mentioned the West coast of North America as a location that could possibly be hit. In a subsequent update video uploaded on 26 May Frank added that everyone around the Pacific should be on high alert.

While no large earthquake occurred on 28 May 2015, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake occurred in Alaska early on the 29th, followed a day later by a record deep magnitude 7.8 earthquake at the Bonin Islands in the West Pacific.

But Frank admits that not every planetary alignment in the Solar System necessarily causes a large earthquake: "Sometimes we only see some seismic increase with magnitudes around 6.0. And sometimes we see nothing at all. The key seems to be the condition of Earth's crust, whether or not an area is due for larger seismic movement."

Since we do not know the condition of Earth's crust, i.e. the amount of stress between tectonic plates at various locations, an earthquake warning may be issued and subsequently canceled when no seismic increase occurs, very much like tsunami warnings.

But the combination of planetary alignments and Earth Harmonics has proven to be an important tool that can be used to anticipate large seismic activity. This was again confirmed on 16 September 2015 when a magnitude 8.3 earthquake occurred in Coquimbo, Chile. Earth Harmonics indicated that 17 September would be a critical date. The earthquake occurred late on the 16th (22:54 UTC), about five hours before Earth lined up with Jupiter and Neptune.

We believe that to some extend earthquakes will always be unpredictable, especially the magnitude. But it has been proven that when planetary alignments occur in our Solar System, seismic activity on Earth tends to go up to magnitude 6 or higher. This allows us to isolate critical time-frames. In general, not every alignment causes a seismic increase, but almost every seismic increase (magnitude 6+) is caused by one or more planetary alignments.

Contrary to what many people assume, we do not believe that the gravitational force is responsible for larger earthquakes at the time of planetary alignments. Rather, we believe that electromagnetic waves affect Earth's crust on an atomic level causing specific vibrations to be amplified. This makes sense since electromagnetism is a stronger force than gravity. Also, the gravitational force is related to the mass of a planet and since the mass does not change when planets align, any gravitational pull is expected to remain the same.

In time, we expect these new ideas about the planets to become more widely known. See also our introduction video "Earthquakes and Electromagnetic Waves".
