"I was searching for an answer to the mysterious seismic lulls where the normal factors appeared less relevant for a month at a time once or twice per year.
(0:16) Hey folks, we're going to take a look at some data. Solar Polar Fields since 2003, a chart from Stanford University.
(0:32) Folks there's Sunspot data, flaring levels, geomagnetic conditions all fringly suggested to potentially affect human existence, but these: the Solar Polar Fields have never been considered important for life on Earth; I strongly disagree.
(0:46) We're going to start at the present and go backwards year by year. Please consider that the most relevant magnetic points here are the peaks, troughs, and when the magnetic lines cross the baseline to switch polarity and when the polar baselines individually cross each other.
(1:25) Well, here they are: all plotted. The list on the left from most recent to earlier down at the bottom. Two of those quakes occurred in 2013 and I'll plot them on the Solar Polar Fields chart, here.
(1:38) May 25th, 2013: 8.3 in Russia as the 'Blue' and 'Red' cross each other, with the 'Red' diving down across the baseline just days later.
(1:47) I would also like to point out some significant planetary geometry: Venus and Mercury, less than two days from conjoining Jupiter as well; complimented by a Full Moon.
(1:56) Our primary Earthquake Factor at this channel is Coronal Holes, and we had 'em both North and South.
(2:16) Three events in 2012, but only two days involved. The latter, October 27th, as the 'Blue' and 'Red' again crossed each other; took the 7.8 in Canada.
(2:27) Saturn was hiding behind the Sun in conjunction and when we tilt around we can see Mars and Jupiter on opposite sides of Earth.
(2:33) It's hard to see without the Field Chart, here, but a crack in those fields did face Earth that day.
(2:39) Other big day in 2012 was April 11th, two 8-pointers. Again, peak of a mini-cycle.
(2:48) Earth was between Mars and Mercury 24 hours earlier and was less than a week until the Saturn opposition of the Sun; this was one of the most diabolical Coronal Holes we'd ever seen…Fields went haywire.
(3:09) One of the biggest Coronal Holes we've ever seen. And the most peculiar planetary geometry: focus on the outer planets all down below…now we're going to zoom-in, all still down below.
(3:22) Folks, despite being the third closest planet to the Sun, Earth was the furthest planet out in this direction over nearly the full 180 degree half-arc; had just seen Mars conjoin the Sun and was just a few days from being in that major line-up across there.
(3:39) Three important days in 2010: here again we see the double-peak, now tremendously significant, but we're going to start with the latest: October 27th, kind of at that double-trough.
(3:51) Hey! I remember those guys, fancy seeing you there. Earth had also just exited a major long range conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter.
(4:01) Back to the double-peak, latter date is April 6th, 2010, which predates the SDO. Luckily Dr. Tony Phillips was watching for us at SpaceWeather.com and has the easiest site archive for past dates data I've ever seen.
(4:14) Anyway, there was a major Coronal Hole that was finishing up it's Earth-facing position and I'm really starting to think that these blokes are stalking me…go away.
(4:30) Earth-facing Coronal Hole on that day actually spanned across the Equator and King Zeus took the podium conjoining the Sun. I bet you're seeing a pattern, but I'm going for more than coincidence here.
(4:43) Three more significant days in 2009, you see a break between them there because the USGS put the same Quake on there twice; all three at the bottom of this cycle trough.
(4:53) The latest, on October 7th, is one of the very few not to have a Coronal Hole, but Earth had watched the inner children conjoin 36 hours earlier, while Saturn took the opportunity to jump right in afterwards; and I wonder if any of them even noticed Uranus with multiple birds in one cross-hair.
(5:09) Just days earlier, the 8.1: we had a modest Coronal Hole that day and that was indeed the beginning of Uranus eyeing planets past the blue dot.
(5:19) Months before, on July 15th, we began the trough with Neptune and Jupiter conjoining from Earth; Mercury simultaneously hiding behind the Sun.

(6:40) And this video would be somewhat useless without this: combining the two. Okay, I began the year missing a significant quake; a 7-pointer in Alaska. And as you can see: I missed a few others. Now there are way more factors than the Cosmic ones mentioned, here, including air pressure, sea level, temperature, magma movement, wind direction and just natural releases of pressure.
(5:45) 2007 was a major year: five matching quakes on four different days.
(5:52) Lets go ahead and plot those four significant days: the latest, December 9th, another cross at the baseline by the central 'Purple' and 'Green' lines to switch polarity.
(6:00) The was a Coronal Hole facing Earth that day and in one more day Mercury and the Sun would conjoin followed a day later by the solidification of a long-range four planet line-up complimented by a New Moon; where Pluto is actually much closer to the alignment than it looks here on JPL.
(6:16) 'Magenta' is September 12th, at the base of the 'Purple' and 'Green' lines. The double-day again: Coronal Hole faced Earth while we were days removed from the Mars opposition of Jupiter; Neptune was geocentrically opposing Venus, all the while Uranus sat directly opposing the Sun bolstered by a New Moon.
(6:35) Less than a month earlier, in 'Orange,' August 14th, at the 'Blue' trough we had a pair of Coronal Holes that day actually. And while the usual suspects still had a whopping four days until they lined up; Saturn was already hitching a rid along Venus' line of sight.
(7:01) There was also an 8-pointer on January 12th, 2007; that is the ONLY non-fitting Quake of the entire bunch to these Solar Polar Fields. It did, however, have a solid Coronal Hole and one of the familiar suspects.
(7:15) I'll speed this up going through the other years on the chart.
(7:17) 2006 back through 2003, and for the sake of time we'll just look at the biggest: 8.0 and higher. The latest of those, November 15th, 2006: 'Purple' and 'Green' crossed the baseline to switch polarity and we took a 8.3 in the Kuril Islands.
(7:33) Earth had just left one conjunction and headed into that Jupiter-Venus dance once more.
(7:39) 8.0 in Tonga on May 3rd, 2006 and look where they change polarity again; King Zeus again with Earth blocking his view of our star and you guessed it: Earth-facing Coronal Hole.
(7:53) Again, this is the same Quake listed twice for some reason: 8.6 on March 28th, 2005; right along with the second, the higher peak of the mini-cycle. Venus conjoining the Sun with Mercury less than two days away from joining; Coronal Hole leaving, another unmentioned on the South and a third incoming at the same time.
(8:26) And the first major Quake after the last Solar Pole flip was September 25th, 2003; at the base of the 'Blue' and the 'Purple' in that cycle.
(8:35) Another of the rare ones lacking a Coronal Hole, but with Mars conjoining Uranus…and I suppose you saw Jupiter swing back there too. Spoiler: these four are so close that Jupiter was just seen between Earth and those other two; that's as close to conjunction as you get without actually conjoining.
(8:53) If you were to plot all the 7 magnitude Quakes and higher from 2003 to Now, you'd find that the non-mentioned peaks, troughs, and crosses of the Solar Polar Fields are not going to hold on to to every one of those quakes.
(9:05) But they're capturing far more than their pro-rata share of a otherwise random distribution. The January and March 2009 'peaks' are the best proof of that.
(9:16) The odd Quake lulls, where the Coronal Holes and Planets seem not to matter as much could be plotted on here too, but with slightly lower correlation; still something we're missing when it comes to those curious, rare extended absenteeism's.
(9:28) That full video, with all of those things mentioned, however, take a very long time to compile. And, if I don't mind saying so: I think we've got some good things to go on now. And I know 160,000 plus people who are going to keep doing it along with me. Be safe everyone.
"Only three quakes lacked a coronal hole."

2) Jupiter opposes the sun now, and Venus conjoins Mercury on January 8th. Anyone see that coronal hole coming in now?
3) There are some things you cannot un-see. If indeed the IMF and coronal holes are quake factors as I suggested for 2 years, then the underlying magnetics of the sun MUST be relevant to seismicity. I THOUGHT I was going to find an answer to the baffling quake droughts! ...I'm still in shock at how perfectly this matches.
