The lurch continued into April, the lean of the N Pole toward Planet X, to be in a side-by-side magnetic position, showed up with more consistency and was noted on message boards, the Sun rising to the North. As this side-by-side alignment can occur more readily when the N Pole of Earth is hidden behind the curve of the Earth, this likewise shows up in the reports - an average of a 12° lean when the N Pole is just coming into view or fully exposed (New York), an average of 25° when the N Pole has gone around the bend and has just become hidden (Singapore), an average of 43° when the Sun is fully hidden (Turkey). Another pattern that has emerged is a strong lurch of the N Pole toward Planet X at times, with a snap back of the N Pole away from Planet X in reaction. This is seen when the N Pole is going round the bend, disappearing from view (Samoa) or about to come into view (Atlantic) but also at a time when the S Pole of Earth is just going around the bend (Iran). The snap back from a strong lurch has also become evident, occurring at times when a strong lurch occurs also.

SantiagoChili: Apr14 10:20 hrs. Stellarium states that the Sun should be at Azi 46° 36' and Alt 34° 09'. What I see is that the Sun is now at approx. Azi 30° and Alt 45°.

PalermoItaly: Apr10 17:45 hrs. Azi 275°. Per Skymap, should be Azi 263°. Sun is over NYC. Lean of the N Pole toward Planet X by 12°. Magnetic N Pole fully exposed.
Hungary: Apr13 19:41 hrs. In Central Europe (48° North 17° East) the Sun sets 10 minutes later, should be 19:31, were 19:41, and more north. I have checked it with three PC programs. Likewise Venus. I don´t know why, but it is a fact.
It should set 7:31 pm circa 285° (azimuth) - it was 10 min later and some 3 degrees more north. Venus should set circa 22:45; actually it was later. Sun is over N America. North by unknown degrees. Lean of the N Pole toward Planet X. Magnetic N Pole is fully exposed.
MadridSpain: Apr2 20:38 hrs. Sunset was at aprox. 310º NW. Skymap expects Azi 277°. Sun is over Alaska. Lean of N Pole toward Planet X by 33°. Magnetic N Pole is fully exposed but retreating.
Sweden: Apr7 1:30 hrs. The Big Dipper (Karlavagnen) is roughly 90° off, toward the West. Its 90° degrees off towards the West (left) from the expected position. This is just in a few weeks! Skymap expects Big Dipper to be in the NW, cup between 270-285°, Alt 60° or higher. For a halted orbit, Oct 1 position, cup between 270-300°, Alt 70. Sun is over N Zealand. Strong 90° lean of N Pole toward Planet X. Magnetic N Pole is disappearing. Strong lurch!
Germany: Apr13 4:00 hr Polaris was too high in the sky. I live at 49°26' northern latitude, so Polaris should be at 49.5 degrees over the horizon. However, it was at least 55 degrees. I drew a line from the horizon through Polaris to the point straight over my head. Polaris should divide that line about 5:4. However it was divided like 2:1. Polaris was dead North. Sun is over Australia. Apparent lurch BACK to the South by 5. Magnetic N Pole just disappeared from view.
SeattleWA: Apr2 7:32 hrs. Sunset Azi 283. Skymap expects 277, 6 too far North. Sun is over the Philippines. Lean of N Pole toward Planet X by 6°. Magnetic N Pole hidden. Apr14 7:45 hrs. Sunset Azi 290°. Skymap expects Azi 283°, 7° too far North. Sun is over the Philippines. Lean of N Pole toward Planet X by 7°. Magnetic N Pole hidden.
El PasoTX: Apr11 20:45 hrs The mid belt star of Orion was Azi 255°, Alt 42°. Per Skymap, Orion should be Azi 233° Alt 43° for Apr 11 but for a halted orbit in Oct 1 position should be Azi 235° Alt 40°. So 20° deg too far North. Sun is over Malaysia, slight 20° lean of N Pole toward Planet X. Magnetic N Pole fully hidden.
El PasoTX: Apr9 23:00 hrs. The belt of Orion was Azi 280-290° and less than 10° degrees above the Franklin Mts. Per Skymap, for Apr 9 Orion's belt should be Azi 255°, Alt 20° but for a halted orbit, Oct 1 position, it is still close, Azi 250° and Alt 25° high. So too far North by 30°. Sun is over India, 30° lean of N Pole toward Planet X. Magnetic N Pole fully hidden.
MadridSpain: Apr16 7:40 hrs. The Sun was at aprox. 105-110º E. Official data: the Sun to appear at 7:37 (GMT 2). Per Skymap, Sunrise should be at Azi 72°, so 33° too far South! Sun is over Iran. Strong lurch BACK of the N Pole away from Planet X by 33°. Magnetic N Pole is fully hidden. Apr17 7:40 hrs. The Sun was at aprox. 80º E in Galapagar. Official data: the Sun to appear at 7:35 (GMT 2). Per Skymap, Sunrise should be at Azi 72°, so 8° too far South! Sun is over Iran. Slight lurch BACK of the N Pole away from Planet X by 8º. Magnetic N Pole is fully hidden but S Pole has just disappeared.
VancouverCA: Apr14 23:15 Leo was facing south behind my condo and with Denebola (tail star of Leo, mag. 2.16) approximately several degrees east of south. According to Stellarium, Denebola was due to be at azimuth 180°. Too far west by approximately 4°. Apr16 I found the stars in the constellation Leo were once again about 4 degrees too far west at the times they should have been at azimuth 180 degees. I tried out the sextant I made and my average measurements had those stars at 4 degrees too low as compared to Stellarium. Sun is over Iran. Lean of N Pole toward Planet X by 4°. Magnetic N Pole is fully hidden.
MadridSpain: Mar26 8:40 hrs approximately 95 East. Skymap expects Azi 93°, so, very close. Sun is over Saudi Arabia. Intermittent lean gone. Magnetic N Pole is fully hidden.
OsakaJapan: Apr3 17:50 hrs. West is calculate by S/N strret. High poll or chimney is 276°. Per Skymap, sunset in Osaka should be about 18:18 at Azi 276°. In the photos submitted, Sun is just above the horizon at 17:50. 20 minutes to go until sundown but the Sun is now North of the chimney, so the sunset is farther North than it should be. Sun is over Saudi Arabia. Lean N pole toward Planet X by unknown degrees. Magnetic N Pole fully hidden from view.
MadridSpain: Mar12 9:45 hrs. At 9:45, the Sun was aprox. 160º E. Mar13 it was aprox. 165º E. Skymap expects the Sun to be only Azi 117 Alt 24 for Mar12. Sun is over Turkey. Lean of N Pole toward Planet X by 43°. Magnetic N Pole is fully hidden.
BarabooWI: Mar22 5:00 hrs. Big Dipper at 320° and Alt 45. While watching, the handle suddenly fell over to the West by about 45, then straightened out again, pointing up! Skymap expects Azi 315° and Alt 40°, and in a halted orbit for Oct 1 position Azi 315° Alt 35°. Sun is centered over Italy. Lean of N Pole toward Planet X by 5°. Magnetic N Pole still hidden but about to come into view. Suddenly lurch!
