Regardless of any correlation that may exist or otherwise, there is also the point to ponder, that minute increase in any tidal forces that may happen due to the relative near approach of the Moon and Full Moon/New Moon phase, cannot in any physical way cause quakes 10-15 days prior to this near approach and alignment. So, drawing conclusions from just two data points – that of the nearness of dates of the perigee full moon and earthquake in March 2007, and that of the nearness of the perigee new Moon of January 2005 and the tsunami of December 2004 – would be completely meaningless. No inferences should ever be drawn from looking at just two data points – any statistical correlation has to be checked over a number of data points.
Some students working with the planetarium are also compiling earthquake and Moon related data, to visualize and check whether any kind of a correlation at all exists between the Moon related data and earthquakes, looking at data for the last hundred years and more.
Results from this work, as well as general Moon related interesting information, will also be displayed as a small exhibition during the skywatch at the planetarium, on the 19th of March.
