Pacific Island vanishes and scientists find no trace of it

A South Pacific island, shown on marine charts and world maps as well as on Google Earth, does not exist, Australian scientists say.
The supposedly sizeable strip of land, named Sandy Island on Google maps, was positioned midway between Australia and French-governed New Caledonia.
But when scientists from the University of Sydney went to the area, they found only the blue ocean of the Coral Sea.
The phantom island has featured in publications for at least a decade.
Scientist Maria Seton, who was on the ship, said that the team was expecting land, not 1,400m (4,620ft) of deep ocean.
“We wanted to check it out because the navigation charts on board the ship showed a water depth of 1,400m in that area – very deep,” Dr Seton, from the University of Sydney, told the AFP news agency after the 25-day voyage.
“It’s on Google Earth and other maps so we went to check and there was no island. We’re really puzzled. It’s quite bizarre.
“How did it find its way onto the maps? We just don’t know, but we plan to follow up and find out.”
Australian newspapers have reported that the invisible island would sit within French territorial waters if it existed – but does not feature on French government maps.
Australia’s Hydrographic Service, which produces the country’s nautical charts, says its appearance on some scientific maps and Google Earth could just be the result of human error, repeated down the years.

Mysterious lights in the sky scared the people of China

The night sky over Matsu and Jinmen surprised the locals, many people photographed the sky and clouds, where unusual light spots shone brightly.

In Chinese and Taiwanese social networks, this event became so “viral” that the authorities even had to broadcast a story in which, with reference to meteorologists, this phenomenon was explained by the effect of “light pillars”.

Strange lights in China

True, meteorologists did not bother to clarify how this phenomenon appeared in the subtropics. Indeed, there is such a phenomenon, but these “pillars” look like a vertical luminous strip and, most importantly, this optical effect occurs at sub-zero temperatures.

This is how the phenomenon of “light columns” looks like

Jinmenquandao are islands in the western part of the Taiwan Strait, ruled by the Republic of China. Geographically located close to the coast of Fujian province of the People’s Republic of China, east of Xiamen city and south of Quanzhou city of Fujian province of China.

The Matsu Islands is an archipelago in the northern part of the Taiwan Strait, ruled by the Republic of China, near the coast of Fujian province.

This phenomenon was observed at 1:15 am on August 9, 2020. In the night sky of Dongju, Lianjiang County, a thin cloud floated, and at least 12 to 21 luminous points appeared in it.

Noah’s Ark or Nazi ship: a mysterious “ship” discovered off the coast of Antarctica

One of the users of Google Earth examined in the images a huge “ice ship”, which lies not far from the coast of Antarctica. The huge ice structure south of New Zealand strikingly resembles a cruise ship with a row of windows and many chimneys.

The “ice ship” was noticed by a video blogger registered on YouTube under the nickname MrMBB333, who describes himself as the guardian of the Earth.

“I follow [on Google Earth] everything from the seabed to space and everything in between,” MrMBB333 says about himself.

In one of his latest videos, the author highlighted the part of the snow-covered Antarctica, in which, in his opinion, he found the ship. According to him, the vessel is about 130 meters long.

If you do not look closely, then we can assume that this is a huge iceberg, but if you examine the find in more detail, then there is absolutely no doubt that this is a real ship that was built on purpose.

Users in the comments under the video, which MrMBB333 posted on his channel on August 7, continue to argue where such a large ship could have come from in Antarctica. One user suggested that the ship was built a few years ago to save rich people in the event of the end of the world. Others leaned towards the shipwreck version. Another part believed that the YouTuber managed to find the mysterious Noah’s Ark. Also, the widespread version was that the ship had some direct relation to a secret Nazi military base.

At the moment there is no information about what kind of ship it actually is. In order to lift it off the ice and transport it for further study, it will take a lot of resources, and it is not possible to do this now.

Earlier in the same video, MrMBB333 shows another piece of ice in Antarctica, which he claims has wall marks and parking spaces. In the comments to the video, users either jokingly or seriously build conspiracy theories about the origin of the ship.

Various versions are being put forward: from a secret Nazi base to traces of an ancient civilization.

Brandao claims that he never resorted to the help of plastic surgeons, and his appearance is the result of a healthy lifestyle.

He adheres to a special diet: he does not eat fried and canned food, and also avoids sugar.

The man combines all this with strength training. He prefers mineral water from drinks, drinking about two liters daily.

Brandao also stresses that he has never smoked or used drugs in his life.

“Now I feel no worse than when I was not even 30,” he says. – I feel the same energy as before. To be honest, I’ve never felt so good.” he says.
