Mw 6.4 Kermadec Islands, New Zealand
updated 31 August 2021

On 31 August 2021 a strong earthquake occurred at the Kermadec Islands, New Zealand at a depth of 40 km. The seismic event occurred at 02:52:51 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 6.4.

Some critical planetary geometry occurred early on the 30th while the Moon lined up with Uranus on the 28th. The Moon was about to make critical geometry with Mars and Neptune. The earthquake occurred at the lunar peak index 12 following the planetary geometry. On the 27th an atmospheric peak seemed to point to the New Zealand region and South Island was estimated to be the most likely area, which was about one hour off from the isolated longitude.
