Magnetic Poles drifting

It isn't knitting but it is interesting the magnetic north pole is drifting! Okay yes, it is always drifting so don't panic, but it at least for the lay-public we now know the direction, Siberia!

So, it may be that aurora become more rare and we will need to do a better job teaching children about magnetic declination (or variance) and explain why they shouldn't use those 50 year old maps with our compasses!

You can find the whole story at the "Universe Today" website. Now I am willing to bet that we start seeing "Doom and Gloom" emails about the end of the earth or the huge swing in the magnetic poles in emails by the end of the week. Remember folks the magnetic poles oscillate normally.
