M 6.6 earthquake Central Mid-Atlantic Ridge

last updated 24 May 2021

A strong earthquake occurred on the Central Mid-Atlantic ridge on 6 September 2020 at 06:51 UTC. The estimated moment magnitude is 6.6.

Critical planetary geometry involving Mercury and Uranus occurred on the 4th and 5th almost 24 hours apart, while the Moon made a 45° angle with Uranus and Neptune. About 3 hours before the tremor, the Moon aligned with Mars. However, atmospheric electricity was the reason to issue a warning earlier on the day.

Update 28 May 2021: A WPG peak formed early on the 3rd followed by a lunar peak on the 6th.
