We derive stronger bounds on the magnetic monopole charge of the proton, and hence on non-associative quantum mechanics from measurements of the magnetic fields of the Earth, the Moon and Mars. Limits are several orders of magnitude stronger than the ones inferred from the hydrogen atomic levels, assuming that electrons do not retain a magnetic monopole charge. Conversely, we show how to estimate bounds on the magnetic charge of a proton correctly, when the magnetic monopole charge of the electron is taken into account.
