North Magnetic Pole Moving Toward Russia 64Km per Year

Posted by Info on 05/01/2010

Just interesting:
“National Geographic” reports that the Earth’s north magnetic pole — which for decades sat immobile under the frozen reaches of northern Canada — is on the move. And it’s racing toward…Russia.

Magnetic north is the place where compass needles actually point. It’s near but not in the same place as the geographic North Pole. Due to little understood changes in our planet’s core, the magnetic pole is now moving toward Russia at the incredible speed of 64 kilometers per year.
