Mw 6.6 Java Region
updated 31 May 2021 UTC

On 6 July 2020 a strong earthquake occurred at the Java Sea at a depth of 566 km. The seismic event occurred at 22:54:49 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 6.6.

Three planetary alignments from 1 to 5 July preceded the earthquake while the fourth, Sun-Mercury-Saturn was only 9 hours away. The Sun-Mercury-Jupiter alignment on the 5th was followed by a WPG peak, which in turn was followed by a lunar peak that reached 14 later on the 5th, early 6th. Atmospheric electricity was in a 5 mV band since 1 July and began to peak significantly after the alignment on the 5th, around 17:00 hours UTC, indicating the potential of a strong to major earthquake near the longitudes of Java, Sumatra, meaning that eastern China would also have been at risk.
