    When I first moved up here, our magnetic declination was 28 degrees. Now, according to my newfangled GPS/mag-compass app, I find that our declination is a mere 17 degrees! In another 40 years, we be be completely declined....or undeclined.....not sure which.

    One of the many reasons why flying in KL7-land is a real challenge.

    The FAA Aircraft Facility Directory shows the Declination (Magnetic Variation) surveyed as 20 East for Fairbanks, FAI.

    CHARTS ARE BEING CHANGED RIGHT NOW. MAGNETIC NORTH HAS MOVED AS PREDICTED.

    As soon as it gets to zero; both N and S magnet poles will swap places!

    What is this world coming to when even magnetic north isn't in the same place?

    Is nothing constant anymore, gol-darn it?!!

    Good thing the north star is always in the same position...oh, it's not?

    I think Maxwell's Equations are still good...maybe?

    And stay off my lawn!!

    So in other words, it's going from acute to obtuse, obtuse to acute - whichever - makes my head ache :D:D

    No, one of these days we'll be reading about how even the value of c has variability. Just prepare yourself now. :eek:
