The May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse and the Tectonic Plates of Japan.

May 3, 2012 – The Solar Eclipse of May 20, 2012 and the Tectonic Plates of Japan: Three separate plates collide to the southeast of Japan: (1) the Pacific Plate, (2) the Philippine Plate and (3) the Eurasian Plate. The May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse totality line is shown in red; passing directly through Tokyo. The blue eclipse lines mark the limits of seeing the full eclipse. I’ve also marked the mega-quake and tsunami of March 22, 2011. Several subduction zones, along the southeast of the country are highlighted by this eclipse.
An expanded view of the entire eclipse shows that it starts in the east, sweeps up towards the Aleutian Island chain and down through California and Nevada. Earthquakes usually travel along eclipses.

Where, when and if a large earthquake strikes along this eclipse I do not know, however, if one does hit; this eclipse line is the most likely location.

    Sort of leaves that open then Bill, anywhere from Japan to the Aleutian Islands, or Cascadia or California! We shall see! 🙂

      open, yes – – I have no idea if their will be an earthquake relative to the May 20, 2012 Annular Solar Eclipse. If their is, the eclipse line; from Japan to the U.S. is a likely spot. Along that Eclipse line you have to suspect areas of high earthquake activity, i.e., Japan, the Aleutian Islands or Cascadia. My best guess is Japan.

      • PuterMan says:

        I think I would be inclined to go Cascadia. Japan is resting temporarily but Cascadia (Southern end at least) is well up there and ready in terms of stress and there has been quite a bit of small activity in the past week or so from Vancouver Island down.

        All the best. David

    What is the theory on how the shadow of the moon can create an earthquake? I am just not understanding the connection here. Thanks!

    • wfoster2011 says:

      A reasonable quesetion. The connection between eclipses, earthquakes and other disasters goes back at least 3,500 years. Here is one link among thousands:
      I think you’re looking at the issue from an astronomical perspective. From a meta-physical and astrological standpoint the cause and effect is much different.

        Here is part of that link I gave you:
        “This has been identified as a description of the total solar eclipse of April 6, 648 B.C. Another eclipse reference (from the Bible) goes like this:

        “And I behold when he had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great earthquake; and the Sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the Moon became as blood. — Revelation 6:12

        This compelling passage is only one of a number of literary and historical connections between eclipses and earthquakes. The Greek historian Thucydides, in writing about the Peloponnesian War, remarked about “earthquakes and eclipses of the Sun which came to pass more frequently than had been remembered in former times.” On another occasion he noted “… there was an eclipse of the Sun at the time of a new Moon, and in the early part of the same month an earthquake.” Another Greek writer, Phlegon, reported the following events:

        In the fourth year of the 202nd Olympiad, there was an eclipse of the Sun which was greater than any known before and in the sixth hour of the day it became night; so that stars appeared in the heaven; and a great earthquake that broke out in Bithynia destroyed the greatest part of Nicaea.

        This interest in linking the two types of events by coincidence may have been attempts to derive some order out of the unpredictability of earthquakes, possibly a carryover from the celestial omens of the Babylonians. Oddly enough, this type of coincidence seems to persist. The earthquake in Iran on September 16, 1978, the most devastating one of that year and which killed more that 25,000 people, occurred just 3-1/2 hours before a total lunar eclipse was visible there.”
        The first sentence of the second paragraph reflects the thousand year connection between eclipses and earthquakes, “This compelling passage [Reveltion 6:12] is only one of a number of literary and historical connections between eclipses an earthquakes.”
