A day after we announced the second Magnetic Filament Eruption for the SECOND February Piers Corbyn "R5" Red Warning Period we have just received a news report from Eastern Russia that they have had a M6.9 Earthquake, just another coincidence? Or is there something to these high end "R4+" forecasts, you decide....more to follow
A magnitude 6.9 earthquake has hit the Kuril Islands, south of Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). The quake had a depth of 18 miles.
There are no reports of damage.
It's the second quake to hit the Kuril Islands this year. A magnitude 5.5 earthquake struck the Isles on January 1. The Islands were also hit with two earthquakes in November 2012, which measured magnitudes of 6.8 and 5.3.
The Kuril Islands are located 90 kilometers (56 miles) from Severo-Kuril'sk, Russia. Tokyo is located 2,204 kilometers (1,369 miles) away from the Isles.
The population of the Islands is around 19,000 people, and the total land area is about 15,600 square kilometers (6,000 square miles).
Below is an awesome video capturing the C8.7 solar flare around Sunspot 1667. During the eruption, a blob of plasma above the blast site is captured spinning like a Tornado vortex. Most of us Sun lovers hope for X-Class solar flares, however even a C-Class flare can be fascinating. A slow motion version is also included.
EARTH-DIRECTED ERUPTION - SpaceWeather.com: The magnetic canopy of decaying sunspot AR1667 erupted this morning (Feb. 6th @ 00:21 UT), producing a long duration C9-class solar flare and hurling a coronal mass ejection (CME) into space. According to first-look images from NASA's STEREO-B spacecraft, the CME appears to be heading in the general direction of Earth...click SpaceWeather.com link for Video link
The last and ONLY M7+ EQ so far this year was on the 5th January, and it was a direct result of a Solar flare, but unlike this time it did NOT fall in a high "R" period and there was no Tropical Storm "power up", unlike this time, this time we did note a major Tropical Storm "power up" that went up to CAT 4, so once again our view of solar activity and changes in the Earth's climate has something in common and it's thanks to Piers we have a good idea when it will happen (not 100% but better then ZERO)....well done again to Piers.....pity the media have not reported on your success yet
Yesterday was the Fist day of the February Piers Corbyn "R5" Period (13th - 17th) and we reported a CAT2 Cyclone and also a Magnetic Filament Eruption on the Surface of the Sun. Today we have a report from Russia of a M6.6 Earthquake and as before I have associated this event with yesterdays Magnetic Filament Eruption. For those of you who think this is a completely unscientific and unrelated thing to do, as events on the surface cant alter events on the surface of our world, good luck with that thought, they do ....more to follow.

The Piers Corbyn "Red Warning" seems to be off target when it comes to rating the two August "Full Moon" periods, both were not expected to produce much and yet they have! Only yesterday I mentioned that the SECOND August "Full Moon" was set at an R3!
