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...

7 major quakes in 5 days rock the Pacific Ring Of Fire: All 7 have occurred during coronal activity and G1-class geomagnetic storms

The K-index, and by extension the Planetary K-index, are used to characterize the magnitude of geomagnetic storms.
Kp is an excellent indicator of disturbances in the Earth's magnetic field and is used by SWPC to decide whether geomagnetic alerts and warnings need to be issued for users who are affected by these disturbances.

Earth is currently inside a stream of solar wind flowing from a massive coronal hole on our Sun which is facing Earth, see dark areas on the image below.
This is the 2nd G1-class geomagnetic storm to impact Earth in the last few days after another coronal hole caused a G1-class geomagnetic storm on Sept the 7th and 8th.
The coronal activity on the Sun and the two geomagnetic storms have coincided with a flurry of seven major quakes to impact the Pacific Ring Of Fire, coincidence?

GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS: Right now, G1-class geomagnetic storms are sparking bright auroras around the Arctic Circle as a stream of high-speed solar wind buffets Earth's magnetic field.
Originally, NOAA forecasters thought the stream might cause a G2-class geomagnetic storm, but now it appears set to peak as a weaker G1-class disturbance.

Another major quake struck the Pacific Ring Of Fire last night bringing the total to seven in five days to hit the volatile area.
Last nights quake was the 7th major quake of September and the 84th of 2018.
All the major quakes in September have struck during the coronal activity on our Sun
