AAAAAAAND the name of the town means end of the world....classic. S&F sir

End of the world as in the geographical back of beyond. Not as in Armageddon.
Quite a common name, eg Cape Finisterre, or Land's End... don't read anything into that!

Hehe I know. I was stating the propoganda value. Idk what the heck makes holes like that. I never saw a sinkhole so perfect. Didn't some scientist say the north pole migrating towards siberia? Maybe that has something to do with it.

Just need to be patient while scientists do their investigation.

Yep, thats boring but the explanation is there, just has to be discovered. If the earth farts and no ones around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Looks like something that happend on one of the Galapagos islands during the 70's.

Turned out to be a hydrothermal explosion.

They can be as powerful as small volcano eruptions and just as violent.

It is highly unlikely it's a sinkhole, material falls inside a sink hole, it isn't ejected out. I think it's unlikely it was a large methane explosion, the material around the edge looks a little too uniform in the amount of material around the edge. There also doesn't appear to be enough material around the edge to fill the hole and you'd expect to see some scorching if it were an explosion. I really doubt something bubbled up, there would be evidence that material "flowed" towards the lowest point, which I presume to be the lake beside the hole. Finally, if it was an explosion, it would have been picked up on satellite heat sensors looking for nuclear explosions and rocket launches.

The way the material appears on the top sides, looks like it has almost been pushed up and out, like something inside the hole pushed its way out and whatever did the pushing slowly accelerated.

Cheers - Dave

Looks like Galactus may be thinking of revisiting planet Earth...
Anyone seen a silver surfboard flying around Russia, lately?

It's clearly the "Gopher of Legend." It's so obvious. Enough said... (Almost)

Wow they really didn't wait at all to try and throw the global warming spin in there. Not that it doesn't exist (necessisarily), its just any environmental issue now is "global warming", like how the Pacific dying has nothing to do with Fuku.

I'm certainly interested to read everyone's theories; I do concur that it has the "prarie dog hole" shape that suggest earth was moved from the inside out. I mean hell, I'll throw it out there: Inner Earth? Didn't they just officially annouce an underwater ocean? Vast underwater Ocean Can we really say that it's NOT possible?

I hope a real life Kaiju crawled out of that thing and is currently wandering the Siberian wilderness until it randomly encounters a city.

Come on, no end of the world scenario in which we all die of Ukarinians and Israel... Boooooring

Kaiju, army of undead breaking free from Middle Earth... throw me a bone

Reminds me of different movie scenes ,where space ships inbedded thousands of years until this alien race restart the engines and take off. .

This has got me really intrigued....

Gaseous escape
Volcanic activity
Impact crater....?

From memory isn't there a 'firery hole' which burns constantly nearby this area...... Again related to the natural gases buried beneath the ground....

This is interesting........ What's at the bottom?

With moles that big I'd hate to now the grass there.

Could it have been caused by super cooled water that might have been exposed to the elements causing it to bubble out?

Like a coke in the freezer too long, introduced to you opening it and suddenly turns to slush?

Would explain the riverbed type appearance around the mouth of the hole.

Here's a YT video. It looks as if there's some type of reflection on the sides and even an odd glow that "domes" over the hole - almost like a "force field"
Odd stuff!

Is it the same diameter as the disc spotted on the bottom of the Baltic two years ago?

posted on Jul, 15 2014 @ 07:43 PM
I want to add - I know the article claims this recently occurred, but I'm not so sure. The video isn't high enough resolution, but the berm around the hole appears to have grass growing on it. One thing is for sure though, it all looks too neat for this to have been caused by some type of eruption. JMO

Good place for Russia to install a big missile silo....It's already dug for them.

We never get cost saving breaks like that in the USA. If this happened in the USA someone would get a contract for digging it, using a little bribe money to politicians. Excuse me, I shouldn't call it bribe money, I meant campaign contributions.

Or there would be an endangered earthworm in the area that prevents any kind of development.

Looks like one of those holes that spiders make with a trap door that catch insects that stumble into the depression.

Giant spider? Did Russia test nukes there in the 50s and 60s?

Where is Godzilla when you need him?

Curious hole though. I would like to know what caused that.

Maybe it is a Dune worm hole....

Sorry, I couldn't resist.
