On 24 November 2016 a major earthquake occurred off the Coast of Central America at a depth of 10 km. The seismic event occurred at 18:43:48 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 7.0.

The earthquake was preceded by two planetary alignments, Mercury-Venus-Uranus on the 22nd and Earth-Mercury-Saturn 23rd, both of which are considered critical, especially Mercury-Venus-Uranus. The earthquake occurred as lunar geometry became critical reaching 11 on the 24th and 15 into the 25th, which resulted in a second strong earthquake.
