A deep earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.3 (and the JMA as M6.5) hit the south coast of Honshu, Japan at 18:33 UTC on July 27. The USGS is reporting a depth of 375.8 km (234 miles).
The epicenter was located 144 km (90 miles) ESE of Shingu, Japan.
Some 200,000 people are estimated to have felt the shaking.
No tsunami warnings have been issued.
And there is a low likelihood of casualties and damage given the location and depth of the quake.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
