Next, click on Settings/Event... and fill in the event magnitude, location (latitude, longitude, depth) (remember that western hemisphere longitudes are negative),  and time (hour, minute, and  second.)  Finally click on "Create files for Seismic Waves."

Click OK, and then resave this event with the same name in order to preserve the added event information within the sac header.  Also note that now the earthquake location and distance to your station are displayed above the record.

Start up the SeismicWaves program and click on the label for the event that you just added.  In this case I clicked on "Kurile Jan. 13, 2007"

The animation will then begin.
