Could someone put me straight on something. I thought that hole was supposed to be a couple of hundred feet wide, but the guy filming looks to be VERY close to it and it does'nt look to be very big at all. Very small in fact.

Yes, the hole is smaller than the first estimates.

On this page they say 30 metres wide (up to 60, if adding the "parapet") and 50 to 70 metres deep.

Interesting, but could someone tell the person holding the camera to POINT IT AT THE HOLE!!!





Haha I was saying this the entire time while watching!

Interesting though and I wonder what formed it. Was it a natural occurrence or did someone or something do it?

The sides look very smooth though like drill holes. I'm not saying they are they just look very smooth.

Looks like a giant version of a burrow, like that of a rabbit or groundhog.

Though the very idea there are 300 foot rabbits hopping around causing tiny earthquakes is completely absurd


HA that reminds me of a bad joke from when i was a boy,
"what do you get if you cross an elephant and a kangaroo?"
"big holes all over Australia"

EDIT: holy crap is my browsers auto correct missing half the English language....

Wasn't it annoying!

Since I wrote that I've had time to think more about what we were shown. I do not believe that the person with the camera went all that way to do such a crappy job with that camera.
That in itself is suspicious....this is ats

Since the video in the OP is now broke, here's another (or maybe the same one).

Has any updated data been presented on the side located hole @1:20?

Or are there any holes in the lake beneath as the side would make good access point for gas or "force" to push...

Its getting quiet but quiet answers are the best @ times as the imaginations are free to run until a accepted consensus scientific explanation is provided...

Com on people..its all just a clever fake video. At first the helicopter flies over it and it looks like 20-30 m in diameter, and black, but i suspect someone just trew some black die in the water to colour it black so it looks like a hole....amazing how they have a helicopter but film at 240p resolution...then in the second half the person stands next to the supposed same hole, but its clearly just way smaller and obviously about 2 m diameter and a simple sink hole.
The one under the womans bed is clearly photoshoped, if it was real , then the tiles would have had more shard corners and some odges suspended over part of the whole, come on since when does a sink hole use a laser/plasma cutter ? oh wait , its the magical mole-pixie-fairies people..right.

Lets just trow random similar stuff together to create hype and sell another book.

I'm interested to know if the amount of earth around the rim, equals the volume of the hole.

I suppose if it were ice/gas pocket eruption that the mass would have been melted or dispersed.

Is that something that has been addressed yet?

Here are more winter photos from excavations into the Siberian craters:

SCIENTISTS SLIDE DOWN INTO SIBERIAN FROZEN HOLES
"One unusual thing the team noticed was the largest hole is located on the intersection of two tectonic faults. While the peninsula itself is relatively quiet in a seismological sense, the temperature beneath the hole was “higher than usual”."

The mystery continues!

Cool!

Thanks for the update!

Wow! I wonder if it freeze-thawed its way down? Unfreezes during daytime, freezes at night. Every time the water unfroze, the water would seep into cracks. When it froze it would expand and crack open more layers of earth?

You don't have to go down too far into the ground before it gets warm enough to keep everything from freezing. The ground is cold, but it always gets hotter the deeper you get.

I really don't know what to make of this in general. So far the given list of possible explanations doesn't satisfy me. Thanks for posting this... I liked being able to see inside the mystery crater.


Amateur assessment:

I see on one side of the crater, a shallow, continuous depression that I may contribute to water flow.

On the opposite side of the crater, I see a small body of water.

It might stand to reason to me that the aforementioned 'stream' I'll call it, used to supply that body of water, and may still through ground saturation.

If this is the case, I might put money on a small meteor landing precisely in this 'stream's path.

It looks to me that this area is heavily saturated with water. Drop a rock into some heavily-saturated mud. It will create a similar hole.

After some few thousand years ( or whatever ) erosion and such may have trimmed away a bit of the impacts effects, but I personally believe it's clear that this was a meteor strike, and that the ice could simply be a result of that 'stream' being interrupted. I would be very curious what lies beneath the ice in question.

Also looks to me like the crater meets up rather well ( if not perfectly ) with where the water line would be in a higher 'tide'.
