stock here. Been watching Mauna Loa for like a month, there is unusual activity. Today saw 2 high altitude earthquakes (magma movements). The solstices and equinoxes are inflection points for the earth movement relative to the sun. As such they often have earthquake / volcanic events associated with them.
Mauna Loa used to be more active in the early 1900’s. The relative dearth of activity in the “modern warm period”. I researched a particular eruption on August 11, 1875 and came across the Hawaiian Gazette, a very interesting view into history. King Kalakaua wrote this on the same day (see clip) “The free offering of a treaty of commercial reciprocity is another act of graciousness, as formerly you lifted us from the bonds of heathenism, and now from national poverty.”
Mauna Loa does not erupt for very long durations, usually a couple weeks, but sometimes a handful of months, although months is rare.
It’s Odd that August 8 thru August 11 keeps repeating in the history of Mauna Loa eruptions.
It’s been 36 years since Mauna Loa erupted in 1984
So calling for it’s Eruption is against the odds. The 1984 event threatened Hilo. My prediction is that this one will threaten the Kona coast cities.
These guys do an excellent job, the
y don’t appear to be keyed in on the space weather, CMEs, CH, GCRs, nor the Indonesian trigger connection.
And here a summary of the 2018 Kilauea Eruption
