We were also very eager to see if Earth's atmosphere would respond to specific planetary and lunar geometry, an idea that was first presented by John H. Nelson, a radio engineer who worked for the RCA in the 1940s, -50s and -60s. He concluded that certain arrangements of the planets from a heliocentric point of view caused shortwave radio signal interference and even blackouts. According to his book Cosmic Patterns the NASA adopted his research at the time.
As it turns out, Earth's atmosphere does indeed seem to respond to specific planetary and lunar positions. It supports our claim that the influence of the planets and the Moon is first and foremost electric and electromagnetic in nature, rather than gravitational as has been assumed for centuries.
In the first month of our measurements — August 2019 — obvious electric peaks in Earth's atmosphere were measured at the time of planetary alignments involving the Sun and Mercury.
Although we cannot draw definite conclusions based on six months of measurments, overall results thus far suggest that on average electricity levels in Earth's atmosphere are lower during Summer on the northern hemisphere when Earth is farther away from the Sun, and higher during Winter on the northern hemisphere when Earth is closer to the Sun.
But electric peaks continue to occur consistently when a) Mercury lines up with the Sun and an outer planet, b) when certain planetary alignments converge like on 7 October 2019 and c) when Earth lines up with the Sun and Jupiter and to a lesser degree with Saturn. Peaks are also being observed when the Moon lines up with an outer planet.
What we have been able to find so far with regards to larger earthquakes is that atmospheric electricity gets more excited before earthquake occurrence, resulting in ~4 mV fluctuations in a narrow 5-10 mV band. When we started recording atmospheric electricity late on 1 August 2019, the graphic showed a narrow but excited signal within 1408 and 1413 mV prior to and during the M 6.8 Sumatra earthquake.
