A planetary alignment within the solar system on January 29 and 30 will cause widespread destruction Earth as it will trigger major quakes. This is because the “positions of Uranus and Neptune: are tugging on the Earth’s tectonic plates, increasing tension which will eventually be unleashed. One earthquake researcher says that a major tremor, possible registering up to a magnitude seven on the Richter scale, could hit by February first.
New age earthquake forecaster website Ditrianum, run by researcher Frank Hoogerbeets, made the bold prediction, writing: “Critical planetary geometry late on the 29th and early 30th could trigger larger seismic activity from the 30th to February 1st.
“A mid to high 6 or even a low 7 magnitude earthquake is possible.
“So far, strong earthquakes have occurred above average in January. In particular the positions of Uranus and Neptune have been instrumental in this seismic unrest.”
A magnitude seven is classified as a major earthquake, and has the potential to rip down buildings and be felt up to 750 kilometres from the epicentre.
The Dutch researcher reached his conclusion using his Solar System Geometry Index (SSGI) which “is the computation of a dataset for a specific time-frame of values given to specific geometric positions of the planets, the Moon and the Sun”.
He said: “After three years of observations, it became clear that some planetary geometry in the Solar System clearly tends to cause a seismic increase, while other geometry does not.”
But experts have previously dismissed Mr Hoogerbeets’ claims, saying that there is no way earthquakes can be predicted.
John Bellini, a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey (USGS) has said: “We can’t predict or forecast earthquakes.
“Sometimes before a large earthquake you’ll have a foreshock or two, but we don’t know they’re foreshocks until the big one happens.”
