Tufty Posted November 18, 2022 Share Posted November 18, 2022 I can't align by polaris as my house is in the way. So I use marks I've made from parallels to polaris from other positions. But checking these recently I found my magnetic compass bearing was now showing almost the same as my True North compass. I know magnetic lines move but could it be so different from the time i moved in, or are my compasses faulty? Further research indicates we are in the middle of an historic event. Ordnance Survey says that for the first time in history Magnetic, True and Grid Norths have come into alignment this November making landfall at Langton Matravers Dorset UK. This line stays in the UK drifting East for a couple of years. Apparently the magnetic fields flipped in 2014 and nobody told me this was on the cards. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
