Earth Mysteries: The Eltanin Enigma

Updated on April 27, 2011

It is amazing how little we know about our own earth and some of the things discovered on it. Even in this day and age of the World Wide Web most people are oblivious to the fact that bizarre and sometimes scary artifacts of world changing proportions are discovered. I’m going to take the time to write about 10 of the most unusual earth anomalies so sit back relax and join me on this little adventure.

The Eltanin Enigma

The Eltanin Enigma is one that I came across online and decided to do a little more research on to see if anyone has uncovered any additional information about. Boy what a chore not only is there so little information that it still leaves more questions than answers. Let me give you a synopsis of the original discovery so you can make up your own mind.

In the early 1960’s there was a Artic research vessel sent to Antarctica to photograph and obtain topography of the ocean floor in the area. While photographing they happen to come upon a very unusual thing at the bottom of the ocean. It was a mysterious and unidentifiable object on the sea floor.

The unusual object was located roughly 13000ft below the sea level. In 1964 era there were currently no technologies available that could sustain that deep depth including the new class of air submarines. So how this piece of equipment assuming that is what is was by the ship’s crew. They had no idea on how it achieved such a precise depth.

The object itself is quite interesting it looks like a long pole with about 12 different spokes attached to the side of it. The spokes come off of the pole like a old time tv antenna. The spokes themselves have been estimated at 15 degrees and about 5 Ft. long each one having a small ball at the end of them.

Some people started to speculate on a more down to earth answer. For example some think it may have been a lost piece of equipment from a earlier research vessel that was doing some research in the area at the time. But, the position of the antenna is so exact that it seems to have been placed there on purpose. So the likely hood that someone dropped it two and half miles from a ship to be anchored at the bottom is highly unlikely.

With the antenna being in such inhospitable seas the above conclusion could possibly be related to the sphere. But, mist will tell you that it is impossible at that time to establish that specific area with the technology at hand. So then what is it?

Another theory suggests that it might be a piece of ancient technology from the lost city of Atlantis. Or possible even ancient technology that comes to us via the stars. It seems when the antenna is tuned in with an older radio that voices of drama can be heard. Like it is a gateway to the past and what they are saying has yet to be deciphered. Or is it sounds from the earth that is gathered and transmitted that maybe trying to tell us something. Hopefully through more modern science we will soon have and answer to that. In the meantime it will remain anomaly of the earth
