Earth's Axis Shifting
The Chilean earthquake of 2010 shifted the earth's axis by 3 inches or 8 cm.
It shortened the day by a few miliseconds.
The Japan earthquake has added to this effect by moving not only Japan as much as 14 inches to the west, but by moving the earth's axis a whooping 17 centimeters and shortened the day even more.
The Sumatran earthquake shortened the day by 6.8 microseconds and shifted Earth's figure axis by 7 centimeters, or 2.76 inches.
No figures on the effects of the New Zealand mega quakes seems to be available but the earth is on the move.
We already see that volcanos are more active, there are more large earthquakes than usual etc.
Now thousands of people are noting that the sunrise and sunset seem off. The sun, they say, seems to be rising more to the northeast than previously and setting more northwest than before. So despite scientists saying these changes are "not noticable" hundreds of thousands are indeed noticing.
