It never ceases to amaze me what absolutely absurd connections some people make. I was baffled to see so many people on the internet asking if there is any connection between the position of the Moon (which is very close to the earth) and the devastating earthquake in Japan. The answer is NO ! But hey don’t take my word for it, just take a look at this chart.
If Cleopatra was closeby, you'd probably smell her before you see her.
