Mw 7.7 Southeast of Loyalty Islands

updated 24 May 2021

On 10 February 2021 a major earthquake occurred Southeast of the Loyalty Islands. The seismic event occurred at 13:19:59 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 7.7.

This seismic event occurred due to a series of planetary alignments for which a warning was issued on 8 February. The series started on 5 February with a Mercury-Sun-Saturn alignment, which under critical conditions raises the possibility of a high 7 magnitude earthquake. Most critical and decisive were the alignments from the 6th to the 9th, all of which involved Mercury. Therefore, a seismic event around M 7.8 was anticipated, but because of additional critical geometry, the most critical time was considered 14-17 February. See also the report above.
