A fast-moving asteroid the size of a city block will give Earth a close shave on Tuesday, zooming safely past at 6:05 p.m. EDT at a distance of about 126,000 miles. That's about half the distance from the Earth to the moon and the closest approach the asteroid will have made in nearly 300 years, EarthSky.org reported.Add a comment
A small, but noticeable earthquake of Magnitude 3.6 struck San Francisco, CA minutes ago, at 10:18 PM eastern US time (7:18 PM local time) at a very shallow depth of only 8km. The quake is small compared to others that take place in California, but it struck very near the densely populated city, and is taking place while other severe earthquake and volcano activity is also happening in Hawaii.
Geologists and others are wondering if the shaking and eruptions in Hawaii are having an effect on the unstable tectonics of the US west coast; in this case, the Hayward Fault in California?Add a comment
Hawaii's Civil Defense Agency announced a 16th fissure had opened from the erupting Kilauea volcano early in the day Saturday, followed by an announcement at 7 PM local time of a 17th fissure. Both fissures were located in the lower East Rift Zone, east of the Puna Geothermal energy plant and northeast of homes in the Lanipuna Gardens subdivision.
The agency warned previously that boulders the size of refrigerators could be launched from the crater should another eruption take place.Add a comment
