Geosynchronous Satellites are not rigidly locked to a point referencing earth. They operate within a 'box' and are routinely moved to realign within the parameters of the box. Your receiving equipment is made to tolerate the variations so the 4 inches may very will be within those tolerances.

There are some theories that the Earth has under gone axis shifts in the past and it could happen again.

Recommended reading: "Polar Shift" by Clive Cussler. It's fiction, but based on fact.

I thank everyone for the responses and insight to axis shift. It's been an interesting topic at our happy hour and we've had many of the same responses from our friends. Ranging from the entire solar system shifted 4" to a detailed and over my head, explanation of magnetic field shifts and planetary gravity YIKES!

I guess I'll just have an extra cold adult beverage tonight and not worry about it

Thanks again to all.

also a good read: The HAB Theory by Allan W. Eckert. I have read it a few times since it came out in '76.

I can hardly wait until some bozo asks if this 'shift' will put him in a different time zone.

I'm saying right here and now, I claim the 'SMARTY PANTS' award.

I gave enough time for the answer to pop up.

The people (not anyone here) making the "news" are as always not telling you anything you need to know.

This is a NATURAL occurrence and they have no way of knowing what did what to whatever.

Chandler wobble - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I KNEW I remembered SOMETHING from high school.

I'd be willing to bet those satellite guys know all about this.
