Google Maps user spots mysterious object submerged off the coast of Greece – and no-one knows what it is
One eagle-eyed Google Earth user has spotted an ‘unidentified submerged object’ ( USO ) off the coast of Greece, and no-one can work out what it is.
The user, called Underbelly, posted a video about the object on Disclose.tv .
He wrote: “This USO was spotted in The Aegean Sea off the coast of Greece and here are the Coordinates 40°27’4.62″ 22°51’39.78″ so you guys can check it out for yourself.
“I did also take some measurements using the ruler on google earth and this object is of 220 feet long.”
The object is circular, with a small inner circle, and almost looks like a nipple.
Many viewers were conflicted about what they thought the object could be.
Several suggested that it’s likely to be a volcanic cone – a triangle-shaped hill formed as material from volcanic eruptions piles up around the vent.
But others had slightly more bizarre theories.
One user commented: “I think it looks like an old light house – former foundations etc.. – on the coast as well sooooo.”
And rather hilariously, another suggested that it could be a ‘very large, freshly popped zit.’
Speaking to Mirror Online, Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said: “Some might think its shape indicates it is submerged flying saucer lurking under the depths.
“More likely it is probably a natural formation.
“Without being able to look at it closely or researching thehistory of the area it is hard to tell. Using the words ‘unidentified submerged object’ implies it is an artificial construct of some type. “
