Earthquake Condition Index: C to C+
No earth facing coronal holes. Spaceweather is quiet. Technically the Mercury/Sun conjunction is effective for another day or two, but the conditions are quiet. Does this mean we can’t have quakes? NO! But they would not be able to be correlated with space factors – remember that the pressure is always building beneath our feet, and absent the space triggers they WOULD eventually release.

Yesterday’s FOTW was spectacular… enough said. Watch it here.
