A simple method for observing the state of the earth. …
Shan, R. Shanmugasundaram lives in Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, Southern India. He is a physics graduate and a ham radio operator.
Shan has conducted consistent observations of deviation of the sun's shadow since 1996. His observatory, located about 11N 77E, is basically a large Sun-dial. A steel ladder fixed to a wall at the top and at the foot.
He tracks the path of the sun's shadow moving over an east facing wall. This simple procedure is one of mankind's most ancient astronomy techniques.
The "normal path" of the sun shadow location on the wall measured at the same time each day forms a fairly straight line. However, after careful observation Shan discovered that the actual sun shadow path often deviates from that line. At times it will move to the right side of the line and at other times to the left.
Additionally, the amount of deviation will be different at different times of the day.
He realised that these deviations were observed when earthquakes occurred within 90 degrees longitude from his observation station. And he began to use that information to post daily EQ forecasts nearly every day for quakes greater than Magnitude 4.0.
Here is a clip for the year 2003:

Shan had to move with his employment so his efforts came to an abrupt halt a few years ago. He still posts irregularly as and when he can. His explanation is consistent with perceived views on crustal deformation and the like.
Oddly (or perniciously) the same beliefs has drawn insults from his fellow believers, as earth crust motion can not possibly disturb the observatory enough and couldn't do so with any regularity.
But that just goes to show how wrong plate tech is.
As it happens, the times I have watched Shan's predictions, they only went wrong when there was a severe tropical storm in the same regions as he'd posted warnings for quakes at.
Which to my mind, proved we were both onto a winner. I was whilst following his predictions I realised that earthquakes were related to Low pressure systems by 90 degrees.
Then I found it was only 80 degrees -an angle that did not "gel" with me at all.
I lost heart. Then whilst following the NCAR and other US weather sites, I realised that Rat Island was active seismically every time a Low or an High left the States at Cape Hatteras.
And Rat Island is 80 degrees from there. Shortly afterwards Shan had to move. I lost touch and the status quo is that no one has been saved from either of our meagre efforts.
Score all and more for Satan.
Not my fault or his.
