Have just read in the guardian news feed on my phone that compasses in the UK will be pointing true north for the first time since the Greenwich obsrvatory was set up. I had noticed my compass pointed to one corner of my kitchen when I first moved in nearly 20 years ago. Now it points to the window. I mentioned this to several friends and they all said I was imagining it! Ha ha I'm vindicated. Has anyone else noticed this and wondered? . I knew that the magnetic north has been moving west over many years but it has apparently sped up remarkedly in the past few years. Pole flip comming? I don't know but the speed it is moving could be a sign. It may carry on slowly moving for many more years yet. What do you think? I'm not an alarmist but it's a very interesting phenomenon.
