Undersea volcano discovered near Christmas Island that looks like the Eye of Sauron

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Looking like the Eye of Sauron from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, an ancient undersea volcano was slowly revealed by multibeam sonar 3,100 metres below our vessel, 280 kilometres southeast of Christmas Island. This was on day 12 of our voyage of exploration to Australia’s Indian Ocean Territories, aboard CSIRO’s dedicated ocean research vessel, the RV Investigator.

Previously unknown and unimagined, this volcano emerged from our screens as a giant oval-shaped depression called a caldera, 6.2km by 4.8km across. It is surrounded by a 300m-high rim (resembling Sauron’s eyelids), and has a 300 m high cone-shaped peak at its the centre (the “pupil”).

Master Frodo will be requiring a boat, Sam Gamgee said to the old wizard.

Looks like ordinary volcano to me. A bit of an exaggerated pictorial description, isn’t it?

Yeah, except in the book Sauron has a body during the timeframe of the Lord of the Rings and the eye is just a symbol :P
