5. I haven't posted for a year or so, but I do remember comments from
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 12:32 PM by Democracyinkind

people who said things like "anyone who knows what they're doing in Alaska won't be surprised to see this".

Don't know how common it still is or ever has been on DU outside of the dungeon, probably not that much. I like to post that link because I was completely baffled when I first learned of the phenomenon.

7. Google it. They believe that CMEs cause earthquakes and
that someone is using HAARP for hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.

9. Interesting
Earthquake lights are caused by an unknown mechanism. There are numerous theories as to how and why they occur.

3. That'd be my first guess...
my second would be arcing of major transmission lines.

After that I'm out of guesses

8. Could just be shorting of a transformer/s...
problem with a 7.1 earthquake is that under these circumstances, the latest earthquake could be a foreshock or another aftershock.

Had a 6.3 here back in '93. Aftershocks continued for a couple of years.

12. That'd be my guess, too, especially since we see the power go out afterward

11. So, what's your theory?
Since earthquake lights are common, I would love to hear some "musing" on what causes them.
