Japan earthquake

Yes seen it on the news. Where i am i was getting mixed info on the size of it. One report said it was 8.4 and another said 8.9. Either one would be a massive hit anyway and then got to contend with the water as well. Totally devastating for all concerned.
Yes. Some will blame the moon.

The lunar perigee on 19 March.

"I would say that the chances of disaster from this supermoon is as great as the chances that the world will end on December 21 next year," said Australian Astronomical Observatory's research astronomer Simon O'Toole, citing interpretations of the Mayan calendar that suggest December 21, 2012 is the day when the world ends.
