Marching On Together

Marching On Together I have had a romance with a lady since my childhood just like thousands of other people around the world who are also in love with her. I have remained in love with her through the many bad times and the few good times, my love for her has never faltered and never will. My lady's name is Leeds United and she is just five games away from returning to the English Football Premiership, after sixteen years in the football wilderness. In the sixties, seventies and early nineties my lady was known as "Super Leeds," however in 2003, my love was relegated from the English Football Premiership due to financial miss-handling by her owners. "Super Leeds," dropped down to the third tier of English football. If Leeds United can grab ten points from their last five games my lady will be back where she belongs in the higher echelons of English football and I can once more embrace my love with happiness.

Leeds 5 v 0 Stoke, 7 points needed from 4 games...

A mag 6.6 - Southwest of Africa is the eleventh major quake of 2018

After last weeks record-breaking week along The Pacific Ring Of Fire, we have yet another major quake in the busy month of January.
A mag 6.6 - Southwest of Africa is the 11th major quake of January and of course 2018.
And with reporting the sun is leaking solar wind from a peppering of small coronal holes now facing Earth, see pic below, this would imply an impressive 11 from 11 major earthquakes this year have occurred during solar wind and or a coronal hole influencing the Earth's magnetosphere.
It is a Big Wobble project this year to document just how many major quakes occur during a coronal hole facing Earth, so far so good, it's 11 from 11, 100 %.
Todays quake carries on the trend of a busy January for major quakes, however this is the first major quake this month outside the Pacific Ring Of Fire
A number of small coronal holes are merging into a larger hole that is spewing a consolidated stream of solar wind into space, see picture below. Credit: SDO/AIA
