Hover your mouse over an alignment to see its effect on Earth ~M6+ seismicity as an INCREASE-PEAK-DECREASE pattern in M6.2+ magnitudes. Very long alignment to Mars not seen affecting seismicity.
The peak-magnitude in each distinct M5.7+ magnification episode/jolt marked by omitting of trending arrows. Each M6.2+ magnitude marked red, except in proximal alignments.
Proximal (marked with an *) alignments occur when bodies are non-strictly aligned (never align themselves or do on occasion, staying within 5° window), so frequent updates and unusual patterns can be expected.
As usual, the alignment to Mars is seen as not affecting Earth's M6.2+ seismicity.
Note: A "~" means ±5% so M5.7-6.2 quakes, obviously useful as oscillation magnification's trending/jolting indicators, are also used for pattern enhancement at ends to show pattern is excited state.
M6.2+ seismicity mostly occurs at the alignment onset so forecast can change once alignment begins. For plots see our Google+ or Pinterest. For 100%-successful 2011-2014 test-phase see archives.
It is too often asserted that a "successful seismic forecast" is the one which can successfully predict: earthquake's location, time, and size (magnitude). But satisfying this all-or-none approach has turned out futile. The insistence on the absolute forecast has been impractical, to say the least. Such a most stringent requirement is found in no other science or human endeavor. Are we talking double standards here?
For you don't refuse a cancer medicine which does not cure the terminal illness but does turn it into a chronic condition! You don't discard a weather forecast for not telling you the exact hour and minute, as well as the part of the city to be hit with that downpour! Yet, we somehow developed an expectation of seismologists that they must tell us exactly when and where the next killer-earthquake will strike. Or else they're - "useless"!
Although many lives and huge property are at stake here, seismic forecasts are usually dismissed unless absolute. They are mostly rejected as scaremongering, unscientific, etc. But the antiforecast that you'll find on this site tells the exact days without killer-quakes - anywhere on Earth, years ahead. It also tells, mostly days ahead once M6+ seismicity picks up, when or where the next big one is most likely to strike...
Moving part(s) in a simplest mechanical oscillator can interact in different ways, such as friction. That interaction gives rise to electricity, magnetism, chemical and/or structural changes, and so on.
The same can be shown for our planet as well, under the gravitational force of the Moon and other heavenly bodies as they affect all geomasses: core, mantle, rocks... stirring our atmosphere even.
Extending that georesonator concept mathematically (to our entire Universe) shows it holds universally. This gives it predictive powers such as forecasting of quakes - anywhere in the Solar system!
• Based on discovered increase―peak―decrease pattern in M6.2+ seismicity strength as Earth aligns with 2 heavenly bodies for 3+ days
• The discovery confirmed a previously unproven feeling by Alfred Wegener that the cause of geoseismicity lies outside the Earth!
• The increase begins normally at the onset of the alignment that obviously can occur only within the Solar system's "plane"
• As 2 such alignments begin simultaneously - the M7+ seismicity gets set off on Earth (except for its polar zones)
• A very long alignment (lasting for 2+ weeks) also sets off the M7+ seismicity (except for the polar zones)
• Why ~ M6 cut-off? M6+ quakes account for ~2/3 of quakes-energy, faithfully representing Earth
• Our entire instrumented seismic records (since 1890s) exhibit the same pattern
• The above applies to seismotectonics of all heavenly bodies alike...
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS: an example of the discovered pattern in M6+ earthquakes' strength: always increasing―peaking―decreasing during an astronomical alignment(s)
between the Earth and two other celestial objects within our Solar system's "plane" that last for 3+ days - the mantle response-time (to forced oscillation) for forming the pattern.

The seismic forecast which tells when for sure there won't be any catastrophic earthquakes anywhere on Earth
is much more a "dream come true" for financial (insurance primarily) industry, than a forecast which pinpoints
(when and where) such a disaster will strike. Here's an incomplete list of some of our regular clients since 2011:

As challenged by the guest of this Swedish radio-show, of August 2011, a M6.6 earthquake did strike exactly on 22 Nov 2011 due to an alignment -
as predicted by Hyperresonance Unifying Theory (HUT). This confirmed the predictive power of HUT, its special case (the georesonator) in particular.
