This is a real and dangerous phenomenon. New shocking images clearly show the enormous pit in Sweden is expanding.
The 200 foot wide open pit is called the "Fabiangropen" (Fabian pit) and is in the Malmberget area is located at Gällivare, 75km from Kiruna, Sweden.
" I'm scared, I do not want to be alone in the house when it happens. It is so loud and it only gets louder and louder. It is like having an ariplane flying low above the house. It is just like the beginning of a volcano eruption, " said Berit Hannu who lives very close to the pit.

The last one of the 10 sinkholes isn´t a sinkhole. Just wanted to say that. I live about 1.5 kilometers (nearly a mile) away from one. It was old and overgrown already when I was young. About 8-10 m in diameter and like 12-15m deep or so. We had to remove some wild boars that were trapped in it (its very steep). Well, we had to shoot them, because telling a 150kg meat packet to calm down so we can lift it out wasn´t cutting it.

Wow. How deep was this? Reminds me of an episode of Fringe. Where mini black holes just spontaneously happen.
Originally the ceiling panel above the cavity 250 meters thick. It has since gradually thinned out and the cavity is moved upwards over the years.
