While researching something using Google Earth, I was admiring the undersea terrain (love all the valleys, seamounts, etc), when I came upon something
that made me grin, and quickly thought of ATS, with all the threads on underwater "structures", etc that get posted on here, and thought: "Why
So here is my very own "Strange Structure Under The Ocean" thread.
What I saw reminded me quickly of the seams in the hull of very old steam ships, that are riveted together:
I'm not talking about the lines we are seeing, as those are cause by the sonar data. No, I'm talking about the round objects that are in a line
They start at about 107 miles west off the coast of California, and stretch for about 43 miles. The Latitude and Longitude for these is:
N 35 deg 01' 07"
W 122 deg 58' 59"
There are a few more about 22 miles due south of these.
I have no idea what they are (collapsed underwater volcano craters?), and first thought it is just either an artifact from the sonar scan, or an
artifact created by Google Earth itself:
The surrounding sea floor is at a depth of about 13,300 to 13,400 feet deep. If you move your cursor over them, the depth does go down some, and then
in the center rises 100 to 300 feet for each one.
Most likely something natural that with a higher resolution scan we could see beter.....or Google Earth making interesting artifacts with it's
Either way, I thought you folks here at ATS would enjoy speculating about it.
