1202 Syria earthquake

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Jan 09, 2022 5:00 pm

May 20, 1202, dawn, epicenter 33.5° N, 36.0° E

As the Fourth Crusade was starting, a 7.6 magnitude earthquake sliced through the Middle East centered in Syria, felt from Sicily to Iran - very widespread - and from approximately Constantinople to Aswan, Egypt.

As many as 1,100,000 people died, including those killed by consequent famine and epidemics. More conservative estimates of around 30,000 are probably closer to how many died directly from the quake. It primarily impacted that part of the Holy Land that was the target of the Crusades, called the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem.

Sunrise at the epicenter was 4:51 AM LMT. Dawn (which was surely an approximation and might have been a record from another location) would likely have been a bit earlier, though the exact timing doesn't matter much.

I calculated these charts in both SF and TMSA, with an 18° difference in the Capsolar Ascendant, so I've then edited the SF charts to the time calculated by TMSA.

The Capsolar itself seems on target if we just take its general message:
something of huge/large scope, that affects a big number of people, and requires focused attention of the leading individuals/organizational-hubs.
