Earth's magnetic north pole has been moving East at an unusually fast pace, heading from the Canadian Arctic toward Russia.
The rapid change of the magnetic poles has caused concern over navigation, GPS systems, military operations, etc.
The northern magnetic pole has been drifting toward Russia at a speed of 34 miles per year (55 kilometers per year) but has slowed recently to 25 miles per year (40 kilometers per year).
