How much did the latest earth quake alter time?

    The 8.8 earthquake that struck Chili shifted the Earth’s axis by approximately 3 inches, shortening the length of a day by 1.26 milliseconds.  Larger earthquakes in the past have had lesser impact on time.  The Chili earthquake effected the length of days because of its distance from the equator.
