Two More Unexplained Giant Holes Discovered In Siberia Baffle Scientists - What is happening in Siberia? According to some statements, these giant holes don't look like natural formations and currently there is no valid scientific explanation that would cast more light on these huge mysterious craters.
Earlier this month, we reported about the discovery of a shocking 260-foot-wide crater at the "End of the World" on the Yamal Peninsula.
Now, according to latest news, two more unexplained giant holes have been found not far away.
The first crater on the Yamal Peninsula was wide enough to hold several Mi-8 helicopters inside. At first scientists thought this unusual and rare geographical occurrence, which was 262ft wide, was caused by a meteorite. Later scientists suggested the mysterious crater was caused by rising temperatures in the area and not a meteorite.

When a group of experts visited it earlier this month, they noted an icy at its bottom.

Their footage revealed a darkening around the rim which was earlier seen as evidence of heat possibly from an explosion during the crater's creation."They found the crater - around up to 300ft (70 metres) deep - has an icy lake at its bottom, and water is cascading down its eroding permafrost walls," said The Siberian Times.
The second mysterious giant hole is located is in the area's Taz district near the village of Antipayuta and has a diameter of about 49ft (15 meters).
According to local residents, the hole formed on 27 September 2013, but it is not until now the outside world has learned about its existence.

The new Yamal crater is in the area's Taz district near the village of Antipayuta and has a diameter of about 49ft (15 metres).
"I flew by helicopter to inspect this funnel' which he said was formed last year though only now have reports of it reached the outside world.
There is ground outside, as if it was thrown as a result of an underground explosion," Mikhail Lapsui, a deputy of the regional parliament said.
Observers give several versions. According to the first, initially at the place was smoking, and then there was a bright flash. In the second version, a celestial body fell there.
The second hole is "exactly" like the first one, but "much smaller," Lapsui told the Interfax-Ural news agency. "Inside the crater itself, snow can be seen."

The chief scientist of the Earth Cryosphere Institute, Marina Leibman, told URA.RU website in Sibera: "I have heard about the second funnel on Yamal, in Taz district, and saw the pictures. Undoubtedly, we need to study all such formations. It is necessary to be able to predict their occurrence. Each new funnel provides additional information for scientists."

The third crater is in the Taymyr Peninsula.
The third crater is in the Taymyr Peninsula and was accidentally discovered by reindeer herders who almost fell into it, in the vicinity of the remote outpost of Nosok. The funnel is a perfectly formed cone, say locals who are mystified over its formation. Its depth is estimated at between 200 to 330ft (60 to 100 meters) and its diameter - more than 13ft (four meters)

Why these craters have appeared remains unknown for the moment.

The discovery eliminates the possibility that a meteorite had struck the region in the Yamal Peninsula - the name of which translates as 'the end of the world'
Geologists, ecologists, and historians have not come to a consensus about the origin of the Taymyr hole. "It is not like this is the work of men, but also doesn't look like natural formation," said one account expressing puzzlement at its creation
According to Siberian Times, it is unclear what is behind the creation of these giant holes. "Theories range from meteorites, stray missiles, a man-made prank, and aliens, to an explosive cocktail of methane or shale gas suddenly exploding. The version about melting permafrost due to climate change, causing a release of methane gas, which then forces an eruption is the current favorite, though scientists are reluctant to offer a firm conclusion without more study."
