A) Compass needs to be a decent quality
B) Compass works best around room temp or body temp.
C) Keep your compass away from cell phones, PCs, LCDs, ANYTHING electrical.

Place your compass in a spot where it wont move, level, warm, away from electronics. Take a reading on day one. Mark it down. Watch it daily.

Routine makes for good science.

On my way out I saw two dead birds, one was hanging upside down from one leg from a tree limb and the other was just splayed out on the ground. Mandy

Could the amount of static electricity in the air affect the compass direction?
For the past couple of weeks the static here has been worse than normal (and I live in Oregon, where it rains 9 months out of the year) and I noticed when I hold the compass there is a bigger deviation than when I set it down. It is still off a bit when I set it down but not as much as when I am holding it.

Is anyone here a pilot? The reason I ask is about 10 days ago we had company come in from London. We are in Georgia. The entire time the flight was listed as on time/on schedule. No weather issues, etc. The staff said perplexed that it was listed as being on time - that was correct. However it didn't find it's way to the airport until nearly 1 1/2 hours after expected. Anyone else?

Could the magnetic poles reverse in as little as 30 days?

"Scott Bogue, a geologist at Occidental College in Los Angeles and his colleague, Jonathan Glen of the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California, went to Nevada to study a series of well-preserved lava flows. As each flow had cooled into solid rock, it preserved the orientation of the magnetic field at the time.

The two geologists found that the rocks in one particular lava flow had reoriented themselves a whopping 53 degrees in one year, suggesting that the magnetic field had changed direction at approximately one degree per week.

This is only the second report of such a speedy reversal. The first report, published in 1985, was based on a study of rocks formed from ancient lava flows at Steens Mountain, Oregon. That report, which indicated a change of three to six degrees per day, has never gained widespread acceptance.
Although this article says the first report was published in 1995, I mention a report published in 1985 by Prévot, Mankinen, Coe and Grommé in both "Not by Fire but by Ice" ( p.191) and "Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps" ( p. 95).

Regardless of when that first report was published, this new discovery bolsters the theory that reversals can happen very quickly, over a matter of years instead of millennia.
I've received a lot of flack over my assertions that magnetic reversals can occur in as little as 30 days. I cited the rapid reversals in the lava flows on Steens Mountain as part of my proof, so I'm glad to see this new discovery in Nevada."(bold added, ed.)

as to the Vancouver flight scenario.
that did happen, as a poster on this thread posted link to a 'coffee spill' reported by pilots as the reason they had to engage EMERGENCY LANDING PROCEDURES, as ALL their nav were out, due to coffee of course, on their way to GERMANY.
Landed SAFELY in Canada. Oh I'd love to be young enough to WANT to go back through this dross to find linky, buy why should I have all the fun . .. its out there.

This is really anoying, same article posted 100 times, but the clue is not solved yet is it?
They state that they have to redraw the inroute pointers because of the pole have shifted 40 miles or km every year since 1900's, makes no sence?
Unless it suddenly shifted lets say 5-10 degrees(in a matter of days/month) as some have stated looking at compasses

WTF? 40km every year and now its more or what?
WAHT!!???

Very good point. I was doing a science project in high school and got my finger caught between 2 neodymium magnets when they flipped. It was fast and painful. Took a friend to get them apart because I couldn't separate them with one hand.

Yikes. Hope the pole reversal isn't that fast.

IMO the first picture was better because of the dramatic sky in the background and the dead bird hanging on a tree. If you made a close up, perhaps with a telelens, or had the bird a bit bigger, I think it would even have been better and you will have a very dramatic photo - very "beautiful" it its own way.

Thank you for posting the pics.

My cousin views GLP, too. He and I talked on the phone last night and he checked his compass. It was normal.

Tonight, we talked, he checked his compass, it was about 30 degrees out of true. He's utterly baffled by it. We'd both assumed that this was a bs thread, but are now fearing that it's not.

Apologies!
