SOLAR SHOCKWAVE from The Sun Impacts Earth creates Very Deep M8.2 Earthquake hits Fiji region, two M6+ aftershocks
A solar shockwave impacted Earth at 04:25;38 UT on 08/19/18 triggering a Mega Quake that was over 560km deep.  The shockwave came from a series of large coronal holes that were Earth-facing for the last several days.

As the shockwave sped toward Earth at over 1 million MPH+ it picked up more speed with a burst of 1,829,814 MPH









A very strong earthquake registered by the USGS as M8.2 hit Fiji region at 00:19 UTC (12:19 local time) on August 19, 2018. The agency is reporting a depth of 563.4 km (350 miles). EMSC is reporting M8.2 at a depth of 558 km (346 miles). This earthquake can have a low humanitarian impact based on the magnitude and the affected population and their vulnerability. According to the USGS, the epicenter was located 272.5 km (169.3 miles) E of Levuka (population 8 360), 330.6 km (205.4 miles) SE of Labasa (population 27 949), and 364.8 km (226.7 miles) E of…

Scientists at Chicago's Field Museum are now studying a piece of the meteor that broke apart earlier this month over Michigan.

The peach-pit sized meteorite arrived Wednesday and scientists with the museum have started studying it.

NASA scientists say the originally 6-foot-wide meteor broke apart about 20 miles over Earth on January 16th. It created a bright light and what sounded like thunder in the sky.
Museum associate curator Philipp Heck believes the meteorite came from an asteroid orbiting between Mars and Jupiter. Meteorite hunter Robert Ward found it on a snow-covered lake near Hamburg, Michigan, and donated it to the Field Museum.
A meteoroid is a small chunk of asteroid or comet. When it enters Earth's atmosphere it becomes a meteor, fireball or shooting star. The pieces of rock that hit the ground are meteorites.
