MessageToEagle.com - 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.
|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).
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."
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."
