Very interesting. Those first two are quite intriguing to my untrained eye.

Could the tracks in the first be from melting snow?

Good find. How long did it take you to find these?

I'm with you guys. They look completely out of place to me too. Paired with all the previous assertions that 'something fishy is going on down there', it would be foolish to just wave them away as natural formations. Had there been no such reports over the years, it would then be equally senseless to leap straight to the conclusion that it must be "something".

Very interesting finds. And nice to see somebody actually posting pic's and zoom's along with coordinates, etc. Very nice work.

The first two look to me to be going into or through the rock - not simply carvasses in the ice or between ice and rock. So, those are definately more interesting to me. Of course, that doesn't make them man-made. Could be some left-over from glacial melt, lava tubes from a long-dead volcano. I'm no geologist, so I can only make consumer-grade guesses. From a satellite image, it's just really hard to tell anything more than they exist. An on-site survey would really be needed to determine what's really there - as opposed to what it looks like from a satellite image.

Regarding the others, well they basically don't look unusual to me at all.

But, anyway that's my 2-cents (discounted for current economic conditions to 1-cent). Thanks for sharing though!

wow incredible work, just wondering where you found those images from? looks too clear to be from google earth... just wondering if more of us looked maybe we could find some more.

I think its weird that they all have a similar shape, but it could just be caused by melting snow.

It's Superman's house.

And the next time I visit I won't fall for any of that putting the crystal in the wrong crystal thingy either! He's a tricky *astard, as well as morally defunct. Look at the lengths he'll go to just to avoid junk mail!

Ice forming in partially collapsed lava tubes is an excellent call.



Granted the similarity .... but unfortunately not one of your images appears to be an example of an Antarctican lava tube.

Therefore, to try and validate your conclusive statement, I have tried (very unsuccesfully) to find even a single mention of lava tubes in Antartica.
As you appear to be extremely knowledgeable on an incredibly diverse range of topics, could you please submit evidence or sources referencing existing Antarctican lava tubes ? Thanks ....

I, too, was surprised at the relative clarity of the GE images ... which makes quite a change from some of the low grade images we're subjected to within GE.

It was also fascinating to be able to apply a rough time estimate to at least the main opening and conclusively determine that this particular opening is of VERY recent manufacture.
Also the fact that in both images, the ice immediately infront of the openings is very clear and without ANY snow covering ... again indicating that BOTH openings are VERY recent.

Lava tubes are not at all unusual in areas with volcanic activity. The image I showed shows a complete collapse but partial collapses do occur.

I tried to find something specific to that region of Antarctica but could only come up with this. Though the location of the holes is pretty far removed from the crater itself, it's pretty fascinating.

There are alternative explanations for this mass concentration, such as formation by a mantle plume Mantle plume A mantle plume is an upwelling of abnormally hot rock within the Earth's mantle . As the heads of mantle plumes can partly melt when they reach shallow depths, they are thought to be the cause of volcano centers known as Hotspot and probably also to have caused flood basalts.... or other large-scale volcanic activity.

This kind of activity (similar to Hawaii) is very likely to produce lava tubes but you've gotta read the rest of the story!

Going along with the possible "lava tube" origin, I've again tried without success to find any corroborating info regarding such a phenomena on the Antarctican continent.

Failing that, I did a little research to determine the potential sizes of lava tubes and came up with



Lava tubes can be up to 14-15 metres wide, though are often narrower, and run anywhere from 1-15 m below the surface.

A lava tube system in Kiama, Australia, consists of over 20 lava tubes, many of which are breakouts of a main lava tube. The largest of these lava tubes is 22 m in diameter.


But if the 1st opening is in fact a lava tube, then it's almost guaranteed to be THE BIGGEST one in existance as a rough GE measurement gives an approx width of 90 metres and a height of approx 30 metre ... this makes it more than 4 times wider the the widest currently known ... thus making this "lava tube" a runaway MONSTER !!!!

So again, this particular opening is extremely "unusual" no matter how you look at it !

Possibly the Olcars finaly managed to get there mothership out of the ice, and departed the planet. temps have been really weird in certain places around where youve located. 50 to 80 degree rise for short periods of time were listed on space weather.com a few months ago. Maybe the aliens decided to leave before the shift?
Or..
its just a bunch of rocks..
or
Its what Phage said it is..hes the brainy guy::grins::

Another curiousity ... apparently lava tubes are almost ALWAYS associated with a local and active volcano.
And yet, the 1st opening was only created a few years ago ... is monstrous in size ... and seems to have NO associated volcano ANYWHERE within the region.

Just seems less and less satisfactory (or plausible) to assume that this is nothing more than a "simple" lava tube formation as none of the "known" conditions for lava tube formation seem to apply here.

I think I know who has been/is there:

Does anyone know what Mr Egg is referring to here? What rumours? This sounds interesting - I'd like to know more!

Just noticed something else thats out of the ordinary ... and perhaps some one has an explanation for it.

It appears that the last mapping date beind displayed for ALL of Antarctica seems to be 1999 ... EXCEPT for one very, very, very narrow strip which was imaged Feb, 2006.

And guess what's to be found in that newly imaged strip ... 2 highly suspicious openings / entrances !!!

Does this indicate "other" interest in these openings ? That could explain why an "update" of the image quality for this spot was done.

Ok. Not lava tubes. You made me open Google Earth. Now you're gonna get it.



Back to Google Earth. Look at the rocky area about 30 miles northeast of the big hole. Are those holes? Or are they ponds of melt water (or even exposed sea water)? Look at the before and afters.

Are we looking at a hole or are we looking at an ice pond, before and after the summer melt?

Ever heard of something called a crevasse?



Nice find tauristercus. Star for you, thumbs down for this comment.

The hatch looking lid thing in the second pic is amazing and sort of seals the deal for me. Its looks completely different from everything near by and has some sort of rounded teeth on one edge that looks very unnatural imho.

I think Antarctica would be the near perfect place for secret/black military operations and I'm sure the only thing that would stop our or anyone else's country from utilizing it would be a lack of sufficient technology to create some sort of base there. If we have the tech I'd put money on us having a facility there.

we'd be talking about that if we wanted to.
u dont seem like ur on topic here.
the holes look suspicious...

Antarctica is so amazing to look at in Google earth really, there are so many areas that look like sets from a fantasy movie or something otherworldly.

Anyway, it looks as if that whole area is going through alot of change, I was really taken back by the northern section of that updated "strip" with the anomalies mentioned. It looks like water has taken over massive sections of the ice to reveal either dirty nasty water, or small parts of land showing through.

As far as the mentioned areas, they do indeed look questionable! But we could also be looking at a melted pool of water (what is that doing amongst the ice there?) that has a lack of sun hitting it.

Whatever it is, makes me want to dig up some recently taken pictures in some areas. If they exist, I'd guess it's an expensive and somewhat dangerous operation to explore some of these areas via planes.
