Antarctica Mysteries

By J. P. Skipper

For any who wish to track behind me, the above 1st image is included here to help locate the evidence site on the coastal area of Antarctica at the Southern Sea but inland from the coast. When zooming in on this site in Google Earth, one will encounter a narrow pale blue strip at this location within which the evidence reported on here resides. That pale blue strip is a corridor of high resolution surrounded by an extensive sea of smudge obfuscation and that narrow higher resolution strip is the sole reason why we are able to view just a little truth here.

The above 2nd image is another context locator image but this time closer and showing what the pale blue narrow strip of higher resolution looks like and the location of the main evidence sites within it. If the whole of the Antarctica continent was revealed at this kind of higher resolution, there is no telling what many kinds of truths would be revealed to us in the public. Further, one can’t help but get angry when one realizes that we in the public treated as a bunch of dummies are otherwise disrespectfully fed a load of unmentionable material even though we paid for the real thing but certainly aren’t getting that in return.

The above 3rd image is an example of what I mean. The white blank smooth area in the upper left corner of the image is smudge image tampering obfuscation as viewed relative to and side-by-side with a relatively much clearer not obfuscated right portion of the image. Note the sharp straight boundary between the two fields. Note how a portion of the big rough chunk of broken ice casting a dark shadow and with the red arrow on it disappears up under this smudge coating and how nothing more of it, not even a suggestion of it, can be seen through the smudge demonstrating just how thick and obscuring the smudge really is.

Note also that because the Antarctica continent is in theory mostly covered by snow and ice and snow and that solid particulate is so bright sunlight reflective, we likely wouldn’t know the difference if we were looking around in the smudge areas and encountered only some occasional poorly seen blurry rocks. We would likely just pass the poor visibility and lack of any detail off as due to the bright white sunlight reflectivity, fog, etc. However, the above A-B comparison and ruler straight boundary reveals the real truth as to the presence of the obfuscation and this comes to us only because someone by mistake or intent (rebels within?) allowed this narrow satellite strip of truth to be included and come through to us.

By the way, that light green/bluish tint surface that may look like land to you in the above 3rd image is actually very old thick ice floating on water with the edge of the dark water just visible in the upper right corner of the image. I suspect that the ice is tinted this color because it is almost certainly fresh water with microbial life in and on the ice causing the tint. Be glad of it because it is also causing the ice to be less sunlight reflective compared to the big elevated iceberg chunks also present. This slight darker sunlight absorbing rather than sunlight reflecting quality contributes to our being able to see better detail rather than it being washed out in white color.

In any case, as we move up this narrow corridor of higher more true imaging resolution, let’s examine a few mysteries along the way in the evidence as follows.

The above 4–5th and 6–7th image sets are of the same type of evidence in two separate locations not very far from each other in this narrow corridor of Google-Antarctica imaging truth. For the lack of a better term I’ve called these two sites “blowholes” and their general location is in the labeling in the 2nd image in this report. However, blowhole is misleading as you will see below.

This evidence at first resembles blowholes such as that caused by volcanism created heat deep down below that in turn causes heated water to rise and exit as a vent on the surface and so it is natural to interpret these two sites as that. However, take a closer look at these two holes in the 4th and 6th images.

Note that the ice in the hole downward slope is mostly and oddly confined to the left site of the hole in both sites. Also note that this ice on the left side has a slight greenish tint to it as compared to the rest of the snow/ice in the hole’s general vicinity. This indicates that the source of this ice on the left is from within the hole as compared to the other vicinity ice which is much more likely surface snow/ice in origin.

If this was a natural water vent, we should expect that the water with the slight green tint exiting the hole would be much more generally distributed and spread around the hole and its outer surface areas. The fact that the slight green tint ice is confined to the left side only in two separate sites is a bit anomalous and suspicious. Also, note that both holes are elliptical in shape and oriented in the same direction which is again a bit anomalous.

Now it could be that the left side of each site represents a depression relative to the higher rest of the sides of the holes. If so, it could be that heated water welling up from below but not really fully venting may on occasion rise and push into the depressions and then drain back in the hole leaving water behind on the left side to shortly freeze into the slightly green tinted ice. Unfortunately, this straight down satellite view doesn’t allow us to determine if this possibility may be so.

On the other hand, both sites separate some distance from each other have a little too many similarities that strains the chance factor considerably. It is also possible that they are permanent but camouflaged exit points in rocky terrain for some solid wide but flattened objects exiting from underground to the surface environs always in the same direction and via passage first through the water and then up in the air carrying water shedding off the object always dropping off in the same place on the hole left side.

It would have helped considerably if this higher resolution strip would have encompassed a larger general area of this terrain as opposed to this narrow corridor. Perhaps there is more of this type of evidence to see that could be more informative as context information? Unfortunately, the view here is just too narrow a slice to be drawing much in the way of definitive conclusions. At this point there’s just enough truth for it to be really anomalous and suspicious. The key to the above Antarctica evidence is inland fresh water presence in a liquid unfrozen state and the next evidence below will be of this as well.

Before getting into that, did you know that statistically this continent contains 70% of Earth’s fresh water? Of course most of that is suppose to be in the form of snow/ice solid particulates laying around sometimes thousands of feet deep on as well as offshore of the continent. You should know that the average temperature in the Antarctic is –49º C with the coldest temperature on record and the coldest on Earth being –128.6º F or –89º C. In other words, its very cold and most of the time far below the freezing point of fresh water.

However, in the peak of summer the temperature can rise to a whopping 41º F (5º C) to 59º F (15º C) for a very short time. Note that these temperatures are above the freezing temperature of water at sea level but remember that such “warm” temperatures can last for only a few weeks with little impact on large bodies of ice.

With that said, the above 8th image demonstrates a considerable size inland body of green tinted water in a liquid state embedded in elevated rocky terrain. Note that there is no floating ice and only very small residual patches of snow/ice in terrain depressions around the site. That is very significant. Further, this is just a single sample and there is many times more of this same unfrozen liquid water evidence north of this point in this rocky terrain not shown here. There is so much in fact that incredibly it all represents an extensive network of mostly interconnected and mostly navigable large water ways.

Considering that this incredibly is located in the supposedly coldest freezing conditions on Earth where ice extreme thickness lasts for thousands of years without melting, this large area of fresh water presence in a liquid state is extremely anomalous. Also, since there is hardly any ice presence even right at the lake shorelines, we can assume the fact that it is not frozen over likely means that this is deep water right up to the shorelines and perhaps even lightly geothermally heated from below over a large area.

Note that the rocky terrain is also mostly free of snow/ice. This too is typical of the overall site as viewed in Google Earth. Obviously, the temperatures in this general area may be cold from our point of view but the visual evidence here clearly demonstrates that it is just not cold enough to support extensive snow/ice presence no matter what is “suppose” to be the case in Antarctica.

With that thought in mind, I’ve tried to look closely time permitting to see if I could see any signs of civilization evidence in this liquid fresh water mile temperature lost world but I see none that stand out enough to really identify as such. If any is there on a size scale large enough to see at this strips resolution, it has been carefully erased to blend in with the rocky terrain which is itself too uniform in coloring causing me to suspect tampering. If that suspicion is true, then someone has allowed us to see the liquid fresh water sites but anything more than that is apparently taboo.

On the other hand, the above 9th image evidence is located over on the right edge area of the rocky terrain going out into snow/ice fields. It demonstrates what clearly appears to be green tinted surface water shallows also in a liquid state. Note that the left side of the water site is shallow liquid water while the right side seems to be a darker tinted green and likely biological growth of some kind on wetlands associated with the water site with the growth doing its conversion of sunlight to chlorophyll thing.

Note that, although plenty of snow/ice is present all around the site, the water is still in at least a partial liquid self leveling state. I’ve included a view of this evidence because the water is unmistakable even in outer terrain areas like this and this site also seems to present the added bonus of living bio-life evidence as well on dryer ground.

The above 10th image serves as the context locator image for the 8th and 9th image’s liquid surface water site evidence pointed out with the red arrows. The many small red “X’s” in the image represents a sampling of the other largest water sites. In addition, there are many lakes and entirely landlocked smaller bodies of liquid water that are present in this area. I have not bothered to point out or document here in this reporting because it would take just too many images.

Above the large water body sites you will see a lot of jumbled ice presence and these for the most part represent water sites where the water depth is more shallow allowing more ice to form. At the same time there is a great deal of large broken up sections of old floating ice presence in the upper area that suggest this area has in the past been more covered with ice. It may be that the external weather temperature has not warmed so much as the land itself geothermally from below (?) resulting in melt and floating ice breaking up.

Please note in this 10th context image how closely the rocky terrain visible out of the snow/ice with this liquid water evidence is so closely boundaried by the ever present smudge obfuscation fields on either side. It almost seems that someone intentionally fitted this corridor of higher resolution satellite imaging just so that this fabulous huge and extensive unfrozen navigable liquid water site geology could be found by someone in the otherwise heavy obfuscation of Antarctica. Who do we thank, aliens or rebels?

With not only ice free deep fresh water lakes as well as deep water navigable winding waterways and large open bodies of fresh water in networks and a mostly snow/ice free rocky terrain extensive landscape clearly demonstrating ice free milder temperatures, one has to ask why are humans in the Antarctic freezing in other much more difficult to contend with locations. This seems like a much more practical location for a permanent settlement supplied by air with a real landing strip.

Could it be that there is something recognizable out there secret and hidden from our sight under those boundary smudge obfuscation fields that would preclude the consideration of such a human settlement presence? Could it also be that there is evidence at this site that even I cannot recognize as that anomalous because it is just too unfamiliar to even my eye? Indeed, it you choose to close inspect this area in Google Earth to confirm my findings here, there is much here in this rocky outcrop area that is very strange looking and therefore speculative and especially in the upper environs.

The above 11th image is a sample of some of this strange looking evidence looking very much like a lot that I’ve seen on Mars. In this image it is a dense tangled web of crisscrossing ribbons that appear to exist on formerly wet fresh water site bottoms that are now exposed to the air.

Note how some of the longer ribbons above are not straight but tend to wander around while still going in a specific purposeful direction. In the upper environs this is typical as are the presence of densely packed knobs by the thousands just out of definition reach of the image base resolution. Also, in other nearby locations these wandering type continuous ribbons seem to connect and/or bridge between multiple very white fresh water ice masses scattered at random throughout the terrain as though they were paths created by something purposefully accessing the fresher whiter ice not suffused with the green tint. In other cases, the irregular but continuous ribbons also seem to serve as dams blocking floating ice and forming enclosures with floating ice sections in them. Someone managing ice chunks?

The question becomes does this represent some form of life that we are unfamiliar with and find hard to recognize? Perhaps life that does not lay out its systems in very rigid geometric shape as do we Earth humans? The resolution is great enough in this strip to raise more questions but it is not good enough to answer other questions.

The above 12th image is in my opinion an evidence debris field site located just north above the 4th—7th image evidence sites and well below the many fresh water sites area. Now let’s understand that this evidence is very suggestive rather than in any way definitive. The red arrows point to some of the more suggestive evidence.

This does appear to be a chaotic debris field consisting of partially buried and exposed objects, some of which should be of major interest. At least I think they should be of interest to any archaeologist with even a small amount of curiosity but who can think some outside the box as to the possibilities. I know that I would love to be part of any expedition to this place that believes in truth. Is that giant rounded object in the lower left the remains of the leading edge of a partially burled disk type craft or some other tremendous rounded structure that met its fate in some ancient cataclysm?

I must say that suggestive level evidence abounds in this report of this general site that encourages speculation as to both current and ancient alien presence that the image strip alone cannot adequately answer. On the other hand, who would have ever expected to find in Antarctica the coldest place on Earth a very large site literally littered with deep fresh water in a liquid state? Is it a lost world or just someone else’s world?

Either way, if I am the first to publicly discover and report on this incredible unfrozen liquid fresh water evidence (?) in Antarctica, I think I’d like to call it “Skipper Land,” something I’ve never done before. However, my irrelevant personal desires aside, make no mistake about it, here’s the bottom line with this hard visual evidence from Google Earth.

The at least now public discovery of this undeniable area of surface water in a liquid state and the lack of significant snow/ice presence in this rocky terrain area of Antarctica, supposedly the coldest place on Earth, will have official types and debunkers scrambling and back pedaling for explanations. As damage control they will be trying to convince us that this is just the result of a “natural” underlying geothermal hot spot in the land that is causing these obvious very isolated warmer conditions and that such sites are extremely rare. Such an explanation will to the innocent likely sound fairly reasonable and many will accept it mostly because they want to.

However, let’s think about this a little deeper. In all the many past decades of various settlements established by many nations around on this continent and its many coastal ice masses, why has this obvious warmer conditions site not already been settled? After all, these warmer conditions and fresh water and the location on land just inland from the coast make it ideal. Who would want to explore a frozen continent from the bases that we do have established where one is freezing one’s buns off and it is life threatening deadly to go outside without extreme cold weather gear on? Does this make any sense to you?

Likewise, look again at image #3 near the top of this report. See that obfuscating smudge blotting out every thing in the land beneath its applications in the upper left corner and side of the image. I would guess that the bulk of the Antarctica continent is hidden from view in this way in varying degrees. WHY? Surely this question must occur to you. What is it that someone doesn’t want us to see in Antarctica? Why is it necessary to obscure most of an entire continent in the satellite imaging rather than just some isolated places? Remember, this is a large continent and not just an island at the lower end of this world.

I remind you once again that shortly after WWII an “expeditionary” military force (an entire fleet including an aircraft carrier) of ships and thousands of men were sent to Antarctica for “exploration” purposes. Of course such a large military force commitment suggests a covert secret mission cranking up the rumor and denial mills. Further, although this is officially denied, it has been rumored that two atomic blasts were set off some where at or near Antarctica back in those post WWII times. In fact, although I didn’t understand the significance of this at the time some years ago and didn’t preserve it, I’ve seen pictures that included a fleet of ships in the foreground, a completely snow and ice covered landmass and mountain range in the far background, and an unmistakable atomic blast between the ships and the landmass. The presence of a high mountain range suggested Antarctica.

I don’t know about you but to me that’s a lot of USA military activity in force after WWII was over. It’s also a huge expenditure of money, materials, and man power post WWII (with USA citizens in lean times economically recovering from the war effort) to allegedly test military post war cold weather military operations in case of future war with the old USSR and/or investigate the frozen desolate home of a bunch of cold hardy seals and penguins or even a few isolated diehard freezing Nazis.

Could it be that those few freezing Nazis, if they existed at all, were interacting with someone else long established there and that this someone else was the true target of the USA military operation and that the Nazi presence was just a covering misdirection rumor in case it was needed? If so, the continued obfuscation of Antarctica in the satellite imaging into the present tells us that control of the continent was likely NOT established by this military operation. Further, if the story of atomics being used is true, it suggests that who ever is there is able to withstand the use of atomics, were not impressed, and perhaps we’ve had to accept some compromises with respect to who controls the bulk of this land?

On the other hand, is someone who is us here on Earth trying to hide the habitable conditions in Antarctica to give themselves the time to establish a firm military control presence there? In light of the fact that other nations could monitor such activity via their own satellite over flight imaging, this does not seem very likely.

That’s a lot of speculation but then there is the fact of all the obfuscation applications covering most of an entire continent as sampled in image #3 here and that undeniable liquid surface water presence in images #8 and #9 clearly demonstrating warmer conditions. That kind of hard verifiable imaging evidence is hard to get around and explain away. Could it be that someone else not us right here on Earth is calling the shots in this land confining our settlements to its periphery?

Now all that visual obfuscation is there for a reason and so I suspect this report may hit a soar spot among the secrecy types. So I suggest that all of you around the world who can please go quickly to this spot in Google Earth (following my visual directions) to download, document, and preserve this evidence before it can be sanitized following this reporting.

Addendum Added 12/12/2010: It appears that the site of this evidence and its year round unfrozen fresh water in a liquid state is named Bunger Hills and was first discovered and filmed by a seaplane flight in 1947 commanded by Navy Lieutenant David E. Bunger surveying and filming as part of the infamous military 1946/1947 Navy expedition in force named US Navy Operation Highjump overall commanded by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Jr. It seems the plane landed on the water confirming temperatures of 38º and that it was fresh water. Note that I’ve included duplicating material video links below containing 1940s film of this discovery just in case some links are lost in the future. The site is located about about 220 miles or 350 km from the Russian Mirny Station to the west that is part of my Report 196.

I’ve checked the coordinates and the Bunger Hills location is the same as that in my report. Of the great many lakes in this area, the largest and longest is Algae Lake (aka Lake Figurnoye) some 16 miles or 25 km long and up to 449 feet or 137 meters deep. Admiral Byrd described the area as “…..one of the most remarkable regions on Earth. An island suitable for life had been found in a universe of death.” Also, apparently the Russians attempted to establish a small station on this site in 1956 named Oazis later turned over to Poland in 1959 and renamed Dobrowolski Station none of which amounted to much and eventually was abandoned.

This information is important as context but it really doesn’t have that much to do with my reporting and observations except to confirm formal discovery and awareness of this site by others prior to my reporting. I’m not going to bother with it but if someone were to go to the trouble of making a very careful survey of the entire site in this reasonably good imaging and no evidence of the Oazis/Dobrowolski Station sites were revealed, I would suspect the presence of careful image tampering inadvertently covering this visual information.

    Hello,

    There is a lot of interesting information in the article. You point out many of the interesting features of the southern continent that most people probably don’t know about. You bring up a lot of questions too. Ones that might get a lot of creative imaginations going.

    There are many interesting things that have actually been discovered by amateurs even in Google Earth just as there have been by amateur astronomers using publicly available astrophotography. You can find some interesting information linked to atomic bomb test sites including at least two that are unclaimed by any nation.

    Perhaps you will not consider my explanation for part of your conspiracy, but perhaps you might allow for an alternate view to remain in your comments.

    The bulk of the poles are not “an extensive sea of smudge obfuscation” but rather simply areas for which Google does not have higher resolution images… Yet. There are a number of reasons — No I am not here to defend Google or unseen aliens among us. Google is not paying big bucks for the highest resolution satellite images currently available from the various imaging agencies. From what I gather they are using what is available within certain budget constraints. It is one reason why some areas of the globe are mapped much less currently than others.

    Some areas have been mapped by satellites much more frequently than others. This means there are many more images available and hence images of those areas are available much more cheaply at higher resolutions and more frequently than others. That means some areas have higher resolution images than others. It means some areas have much more current images. For a while in the small city — a suburban city of a larger metropolis — there were very current images available, but then they got rolled back to older ones. I inquired and found out that the reason was that the older ones were higher resolution. They were 4 years older, but double the resolution.

    The trick is that many fewer of the mapping satellites cross the poles. It is true that there are many satellites in polar orbit. But the sorts of weather satellites and other satellites in polar orbit are not taking the images used for the Google maps which are colour daylight images… edited for periods of no cloud.

    Often the only real images of polar area are very low angle ones from satellites in near equatorial orbits. It makes the areas very close to the poles very distorted. Not just in the Antarctic, but also in the Arctic regions. You could find that in Canada’s arctic, Norway and Greenland as well… These are places I had been looking at a few years ago.

    There are strips that are mapped in better resolution and available at lower price and hence available to Google Maps. They would include areas of special interest in places like the Antarctic. You will find similar effects around nearly every small Pacific Island and many isolated population centres around the world — especially in isolated areas. Resolution drops substantially once you leave the area around the population centre. It is not a matter of obscuring those areas, rather a matter of showing in greater detail some areas.

    I am sure, that in time higher resolution strips will be expanded to cover more of the Antarctic. Perhaps not as high as the high resolution strips you point out. That is the case with the whole globe. There are places on the globe that you can see individual people on and other areas which would hid aircraft carriers and even small towns. …eventually…

    Many of the places you pointed out I have read about and seen in specials from various sources publicly. Perhaps you haven’t had the access I have over my lifetime as I had for quite a while been a quite keen follower of natural sciences as well as other sciences and technology.

    I hope you keep writing!

      Hi,
      thanks for your complement! Your explanation is worthy. How can it explain such anomalies!

      • dwpenner says:

        Hello,

        If I tried offer explanations for all of them it would look like I was trying to cover them up! I mean it is possible to “try” explain anything. But I might offer some interesting information that might help explain some of the more explainable stuff to leave the extremely anomalous ones behind.

        One misunderstanding about both the North and South Polar regions is that they have a high amount of snowfall. They really don’t. They very much are deserts. The only reason they are covered by ice and snow is that because it is frozen most, if not all of the year, it stays in place for years, decades, centuries or even longer. Ice that you see has accumulated over a very long period of time.

        The fact that Antarctica has low levels of precipitation is something that has to be taught and retaught to geography students.

        This does lead to some of the topographic and geographic anomalies you might find.

        There are also extreme winds that are found in many areas — I am not an expert but I believe that one of the large barriers to exploration is the high pressure area over the pole that causes near constant high velocity winds dropping off the central ice cap and down into the canyons, valleys, and other drop-offs to the sea.

        The low precipitation and high winds lead to a lot of the interesting features.

        As to the lakes… one thing to keep in mind is that all the images must be taken in the short Antarctic Summer or in any case during the portions of Spring and Autumn that are daylight. Even Spring and Autumn might be a problem with the Sun being so low to the Horizon.

        It must be remembered that being below the Antarctic Circle, this is the land of the Midnight Sun. …or endless Antarctic Winter Night. (Seasons are reversed from the North… Antarctic Winter of course is Arctic Summer, this information is known by most readers, but I want to make it clear when I say Antarctic Winter Night that I am meaning Winter for the Antarctic… confusing talking about it…)

        That means that all the liquid lakes you see in the mountains are most likely frozen solid in Summer… I mean Antarctic Winter.

        As to water for Settlement. Even in Summer in the Antarctic, they would need to heat their settlement. If the water is liquid in the Antarctic Summer they might still have to boil it before using it. A station on the Ice also has a ready supply of water if it must still be boiled before use. In fact the melt-water might be purer. As to location… the location of bases in the Antarctic often has to do with what they want to study.

        The sub-ice lakes are very interesting. They are geological marvels! They were first theorized actually when someone was theorizing what could happen at the pressure of the bottom of 4000m of ice. I was just reading about it actually. Look up Lake Vostok on Wikipedia. Long after they discovered the lakes using high energy radar from a radar mapping satellite. Later they used surface mapping radar that could penetrate the ice to map out the huge lakes.

        The lakes exist for a large part due to the high pressure under the ice. From the age of the ice close to the lake — the Russians have drilled down to a close distance to Vostok — they determine that it is hundreds of thounsands of years old and the water might have been trapped over a million years ago and have been kept pristine since then. They did not break into the lake or go closer because they were using a combination of kerosene and something else to keep the drill hole from collapsing.

        There are a lot of nations who do not want the Russians to tap into the lake because of fears of contaminating it. They want to ensure that there will be no contamination. Theories say that all the under ice lakes are interconnected… we are talking lakes that are HUGE. Lake Vostok has water between 400m and 800m deep in two basins. The lake is comparable to Lake Ontario in size.

        Perhaps I should continue writing in another comment?

        I’d add that, because most of the imaging satellites are at lower inclinations, views of Antarctica are largely taken at very oblique angles. I’ve seen some oddities arise from the image rectification algorithms used to provide an overhead view from these oblique images.

        Also, at a quick glance, much of that rock looks volcanic, which would certainly explain the lakes and some of the other geometries.

    Hello again,

    I was looking at some of the strips of higher resolution imagery around the coastline and I am not 100% sure, but I think some of it includes areas showing the sea bottom in the bays and coves in the areas of interest. They are trying to include imagery of the ocean and sea bottom where possible and of course using the highest resolution. I do wish they had better ways to indicate this when the traditional “land” itself is sometimes ice.

    Some of the high resolution coastal areas of course also are in the areas of islands on the coast that are of interest. I am not 100% sure again, but having looked at some of the islands with “oil tanks” and the Russian Cemetery — I am reminded that many arctic and antarctic islands and coasts have whaling camps that were built up where the whalers could render whale oil from the whale carcasses that they had hunted. That would require a place they could anchor and draw the whales onshore then butcher and cook down the meat leaving the oil to collect in barrels… or possibly in tanks? I suspect they would only be inhabited during the warmest months. I would not know just when… I do not know if this was done this far into antarctic waters. I did note the Russian Cemetery and images of it showing the Coptic crosses. With a low sun they leave a very long shadow… it reminded me of one of the images you had of a tall “antennae”. I was wondering if this might also be a Coptic Cross further inland? The low Sun angle would make the cross look tall indeed. A 3 metre cross might have a 10 metre shadow, or longer.

    Do you have any features in particular you might want to talk about?

    The elevations around the Openings #1 and #2 and the “area of obfuscation” are showing about 400 feet [sorry about the imperial measure] , which is a rise from the lower 180 feet to the East. I am just saying it looks to be a small mountain type terrain where the openings are, so “caves” is possibly accurate. I am not saying there are not aliens in those caves.

    However, on a previous Google Earth look, the elevations were acting very weird, as if they changed when I went back later. I was sure I saw a sea level reading. Also, the pictures say “70m” which is about 250 feet. Something odd going on there.
