Mw 6.8 Offshore Coquimbo, Chile
updated 30 May 2021 UTC

On 11 November 2015 two strong earthquakes occurred off the coast of Coquimbo, Chile. The first one occurred at 01:54:37 UTC. The second one occurred at 02:46:19 UTC. Both earthquakes had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 6.8.

While considered aftershocks of the great earthquake on 16 September, one planetary alignment occurred on the 6th, which may have been of some influence. Decisive was the lunar geometry, which peaked 12 from the 8th to the 9th, and two WPG peaks on the 10th.
