Over the past years, the Earth's north magnetic pole has been drifting away, moving at about 34 miles per year, from Canada towards Russia. IT has already crossed the international date line in 2017 and is leaving the Canadian arctic towards Siberia. This constant shift is troublesome and affects many things that are dependent on the magnetic north for navigation such as military, planes, ships, and consumer electronics.
