Oh I do like finding stuff Ive not read before!!  But I do worry about scientists seemingly always getting baffled  :lol:


What (or who) created Siberia's 'Eagle's Nest'? A meteorite, a nuke or gulag inmates? Scientists baffled

    * The site in Irkutsk, Siberia, was discovered in 1949 by a geologist
    * Scientists now think the Patomskiy crater was created by a meteorite but no traces of material have been found to support the theory
    * It is thought to be 250 years old and changes shape constantly

When one geologist stumbled across a massive mound 65 years ago, he had no idea his discovery would spark one of the world’s strangest scientific mysteries.

The site in Irkutsk, Siberia was discovered in 1949 and is a huge convex cone with a funnel-shaped recess and a rounded hill in the middle, which looks a little like an eagle’s nest with an egg nestled inside it.

The origin of the Patomskiy crater has baffled scientists for decades and theories for its existence have ranged from a nuclear blast to a secret gulag mine and even a meteorite strike.

Reminds me a little of the Mars golf-ball crater.

I read up on this place and it certainly is fascinating. I did find a site claiming that there is a UFO buried down in the rubble. No one needs to fake a UFO report to make this place interesting.

Looking at pic 8 on page 1, the material dont look like soil, it looks like chrushed stones or concrete.

Google Earth coordinates, anybody?

the fact that they say its shape changes and rises/falls leads me to think at it's core, it's volcanic. The force that's pushing the rocks just hasn't shown itself. It rises and falls based on that volcanic force. Easily causing the shape shown..
