Solomon aftershocks are lining up!

This is an update to some material I posted earlier. The possible orietation of the M 7.6 earthquake may be revealing itself by the spatial pattern of aftershocks.

This map shows some aftershocks.

I placed the moment tensor here also. Then I drew a line that is oriented with a strike aligned to the moment tensor, that is the red line in this second map.
