A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.1 hit the Molucca Sea, Indonesia at 04:37 UTC on March 24. The agency is reporting a depth of 37.4 km (23.2 miles).
The epicenter was located approximately 141 km (87.6 miles) ENE of Bitung.
There are no people living within 100 km (62 miles), with just 12,000 estimated to have felt weak shaking.
No tsunami warnings have been issued.
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 increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
