|Many writers write scary scenarios about the movement of the magnetic poles. The actual point where magnetic compasses point directly towards the centre of the earth is not where the strength of the of the earth’s magnetic field lies.
Current Auroral Oval: South Pole
The magnetic ovals show how the earth is deflecting the ions streaming out from the sun.
The points where magnetic dip needles are perpendicular to the surface exert little on the
aurora borealis and aurora australis. The actual north magnetic pole is 2500 miles under
the northern shore of Greenland. Likewise the south magnetic pole is 2500 miles under
central Antarctica very near the geographic south pole. The two auroral ovals have not
moved much over the past century. The auroral ovals demonstrate Mother Earth flexing
All the theories on the cause of earth magnetism are inadequate. We do not know what
is generating planetary magnetism.
