Earthquake Condition Index: A-
Coronal holes: A [Equatorial Coronal Hole is Here] Sunspots: A- [Rising still] Spaceweather: B+ [M Flares] Planets: B+ [Saturn/Sun conjoin Nov. 18]

We expect to hit our highest watch level of A to A+ in the coming days, but the “watch period” is certainly here – we’ve been at A- for 2 days and this morning’s 7 magnitude quake likely kicked off a sequence of seismicity that will continue for a few days.

Today’s FOTW was truly super. Kongpop delivered a true thought-provoking bit of information and insight. Definitely don’t miss it.
