A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.3 struck the Pacific-Antarctic ridge at 13:13 UTC Dec 12. The agency is reporting a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
According to the USGS, the epicentre was located 3,532 km (2,195 miles) SSW of Hanga Roa, Chile and 4 338 km (2,670 miles) SE of Wellington, New Zealand.
There are no people living within 100 km (62 miles).
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The global uptick in earthquakes and volcanoes we’ve witnessed lately is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
