In 2012, a satellite image of Antarctica spotted a strange oval-shaped formation in one of the most remote places on the planet. Thousands of miles from modern society, the strange oval-shaped structure raised numerous questions among experts.
At 400-feet across, experts analyzing the image ask whether or not this ‘structure’ could be the result of mother nature. The unusual shape of the structure suggests it may be man-made formation.
Observing the image, we immediately notice how the ‘rings’ of the structure resemble a structure in ruins as if we were looking at walls that have been destroyed, collapsed ruins that have been covered by snow and ice. The image taken in 2012 clearly resembles something that may easily have been designed by someone.
But designed by whom? The ‘structure’ is located in the middle of Antarctica, one of the most inhospitable places on the surface of the planet, one of the most remote and untouched places on Earth, eastern Antarctica.
While the structure may be a man-made structure, experts have to consider a natural explanation, which is the most accurate one; a bizarre ice formation created heavy snowfall, low temperature, and Antarctica’s freezing katabatic wind.
Experts believe that what satellites spotted over Eastern Antarctica may be oddly shaped Sastrugi –sharp irregular grooves formed on a snow surface by wind erosion. Snow/ice dunes.
However, sastrugi run parallel to the direction of the wind and do not tend to create nearly perfectly shaped oval structures.
