Earthquakes – A magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck Japan at depth of 60 kilometers, no reports of damages to buildings or injuries. 5.4 earthquake took place in Iceland at a depth of 10 kilometers, as the volcano in the area is still receiving earthquakes.
Yesterday there was a deep 124 kilometer earthquake in Vanuatu measuring 5.9 in magnitude. So after the large earthquakes in California and Peru, we have more significant earthquakes on the Indo-Australian plate, and Philippine plate.
This verifies the ricochet effect that occurs after a large earthquake on one plate. As the earthquake jolts occur worldwide these plates clash as the 7 of 10 sequence slowly but surely is taking place as described by zetatalk.com.
Usually, the lower the depth of an earthquake the more it impacts people living on the surface of where the earthquake occurred, and the deeper the depth the less impact it has. For example an earthquake with a depth of 10 km usually has a higher impact than an earthquake with a depth 100 km.
Volcanic Activity – We have two earthquakes to report for the yellow stone super volcano in the old Faithful Geyser in Wyoming measuring 0.7 and 0.6 in magnitude, at a depth of 33 km 30 km.
The Tavurvur volcano in Papua New Guinea could disrupt flights from Australia as an ash cloud drifts slowly southwest.
“The volcanic eruption reached the top of the atmosphere at 50,000 feet which is the same height as which planes travel,” said Mr Shepherd.” – source
The volcanic eruption has sent locals in panic, posting on social media pictures of the eruption. A brought out earlier just yesterday there was a magnitude 5.9 eruption which took place, so this plate boundary is active and something to watch.
Gas Explosions – A gas line in Subang west of Java Indonesia caused a serious fire on Thursday,
“The Pertamina-owned gas-line explosion caused around 50 meter-high flames and sent smoke 100 meters into the sky in Subang,” source
An apartment gas explosion took place In Brandmayergasse Australia, with no injuries in the incident.

Fireballs In The Sky
120 pending fireball reports for 8/29/2014 currently pending at the American Meteor Societies website. These fireball reports are for the following states AK, AL, AZ, CA, CT, DC, DE, GA, IA, IL, IN, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MO, MT, NC, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA & WV and 7 reports from Canada.
“I have seen many shooting stars and meteors before but never this large and close up and detailed. Most zip across the sky fast as small and if you blink you’d miss them but not this. “ source
As we can see from one of the recent fireball events, the same areas keep witnessing fireballs, sense this is the case we can all agree that something has to be approaching our inner solar system.
If these events were sporadic, and random, we would see these fireballs in China , and maybe Australia, but the pattern has mainly been the United States and Canada.
Speaking of Canada, we managed to find the dash cam footage of the fireball even which took place today:
