The Earth's Magnetic North Pole, where the magnetic field lines become oriented vertically, moves constantly due to the drift in the Earth's magnetic field. In 2005, the Magnetic North Pole was located at 82.7°N by 114.4°W. To find the magnitudal 2-D land displacement (distance) from the Magnetic North Pole to the True North Pole, multiply the difference between the Magnetic North Pole's latitude (+82.7) and 90 degrees, by 60 nautical miles. (Or: [90-82.7 = 7.3]×60 = 438 nautical miles). That value was correct for 2005, but keep in mind that any latitudinal shift in the position of the Magnetic North Poll indicates a change in distance between the two.

The North Pole and the South Pole are far away from the equator.


If you follow a compass pointing north will you reach the geographic north pole?

No. You will reach to the North Magnetic Pole instead, which is a fair distance from the True North Pole, as the magnet always points North due to Earth's magnetic fields. The distance between the two North Poles are also changing, as Earth's magnetic fields will turn. The current South Pole will be the next North Magnetic Pole in the far future.


How far is the magnetic south pole from the geographic north pole?

Half the world away (8000 miles as a neutrino would fly, 12,500 miles as a bird would fly.)


Is earths geographic North Pole the same thing as earths magnetic North Pole?

No. As far as I remember geographic north pole is on the northern most part of the world and the magnetic north pole is a little to the off from the direct north (I don't remember how far or which direction). To add to the above correct answer, the earth's magnetic north pole is currently situated about 1600 km (1000 miles) distant from it's geographic pole, and is in the vincinity of Bathurst Island in Canada's north. For unknown reasons it shifts somewhat over time, but does not consistently shift in the same direction. Naturally, so does the south magnetic pole.

How far away is the north pole from the US?

How far away is the north pole from the US? Take your latitude and multiply by 60 nautical miles. That will give you your distance from the north pool. If you are in the southern hemisphere it will give you your distance from the south pool.

How far is the magnetic North Pole from the geographic North Pole?

The North Magnetic Pole is located at about 82.7° North and 114.4° West in 2005 (northwest of Sverdrup Island). However it's not there anymore. Since it was discovered in 1831 it has moved hundreds of kilometers from where it is now. The average center point of the North Magnetic Pole moves up to 40 km a year more or less towards the west, but it also circles about its average center point at up to 80km/day.


What is the difference between the North Pole and the magnetic North Pole?

The magnetic north pole is the point to which a compass points. 'True north' is a point on the earth's rotational axis (the earth spins around this point). These are two different points on the earth's surface, and in fact their positions both change over the years due to different factors. When using a compass for navigation, the local magnetic declination should be considered, as this tells the traveller how far away their compass will be pointing from true north. Magnetic declination can be as much as 45 degrees - this would mean that a compass pointing NW would be pointing at true north.


Of True North and Magnetic North and Compass North which way is really up?

True North is the real North, following along the lines of longitude which converge at the North Pole, the farthest geographically North point on the planet, and the rotational axis of the planet. Magnetic North and Compass North are both the same thing, with the compass pointing along Magnetic North. Magnetic North however, is not the real North. If you were to follow your compass as far North as it could point, you would end up on the Prince of Wales Island in the Northwest Territories of Canada, over 1,500 miles away from the North Pole. Magnetic North can be adjusted to True North on your compass by knowing the local magnetic variation of your area and adding/subtracting accordingly. A third North is Grid North, which follows the Grid Lines on a standard map. At the South Pole, every direction is True North, so Grid North is used instead and can be found by following the Prime Meridian northwards. Hope that helps.

Can you separate the poles of magnet?

No. If you cut a magnet in half, each part will still have a north pole and a south pole.Scientists have been trying to obtain "magnetic monopoles", pressumably some particle that has a "north charge" or a "south charge", but so far, without success.No. If you cut a magnet in half, each part will still have a north pole and a south pole.Scientists have been trying to obtain "magnetic monopoles", pressumably some particle that has a "north charge" or a "south charge", but so far, without success.No. If you cut a magnet in half, each part will still have a north pole and a south pole.Scientists have been trying to obtain "magnetic monopoles", pressumably some particle that has a "north charge" or a "south charge", but so far, without success.No. If you cut a magnet in half, each part will still have a north pole and a south pole.Scientists have been trying to obtain "magnetic monopoles", pressumably some particle that has a "north charge" or a "south charge", but so far, without success.


What season in the northern hemisphere is the North Pole tipping away from the sun?

This is dependent on how far it is tipping from the sun. If it is tipping as far away as possible, then it is the middle of Winter.

How far is earth's magnetic axis tilted from is geographic axis?

The magnetic north pole, which is not the same as the geographic north pole is currently situated in the Canadian Arctic. It's moving towards Russia at a rate of about 55 km a year. So, the answer to your question will be different every time you ask it.
