Massive Circular Object Appears to Move on Pacific Floor

It’s time again to play “What’s That Thing on Google Maps?” Today’s object lies not on land but under the ocean at coordinates 4.250044, 28.712918 in the North Pacific Ocean.

It doesn’t take much staring to imagine this is some sort of saucer-shaped object crawling across the ocean floor, leaving a trench impression behind it. Which raises the obvious question: who has the time to search Google maps of the ocean for this kind of stuff?

After you ponder that one (here’s a hint … the picture appears to have first surfaced on 4chan), the next question is: what the heck is this Unidentified Underwater Object? The folks at SecureTeam10 did some Google legwork recently and determined that the object is 2.81 miles (4.5 km) in diameter and what looks like a curving trail behind it measures 46 miles (74 km) in length. Based on its coordinates, it’s about 3,000 feet (.9 km) below the surface.

At that point, SecureTeam10 predictably moves to speculation that the object is some sort of alien craft crawling across the ocean floor. OK, if it’s actually a ship, why isn’t it floating? Why is there only one? Who is the rock shape designed to deceive? Is it really moving or is the trail a skid mark from when it might have crashed?

Baltic Sea Anomaly

SecureTeam10 correctly points out that this isn’t the first object found on the bottom of a body of water that resembles a spacecraft. One of the most famous is the so-called Baltic Sea Anomaly – a 60-meter (220-foot) object resembling the Star Wars Millennium Falcon that was allegedly discovered in 2011 at a depth of 300 feet by Swedish explorer Peter Lindberg and his Ocean X team while looking for a conventional shipwreck. Like the Pacific disc, that object also has a groove in the sea bed behind it. While there were reports that Ocean X claimed their electronic gear stopped working when they got within 200 meters of the object, Lindberg himself agrees with experts that the object is not metallic and is most likely a really cool-looking rock.

Which brings us back to the less-cool-looking but still mysterious object at 4.250044, 28.712918 in the North Pacific. Is this single Google image enough to prove the object is an alien spaceship moving across the ocean floor? Hardly. Is it enough to prove it’s just a big round rock and the trench behind it was formed by ocean currents? Not proof, but a little more likely. If it’s neither of those, what else could it be?

Will anyone send a submarine out to 4.250044, 28.712918 to take a good look at it? Don’t hold your breath.

    So the Swedish guys say now it’s just a cool rock? Even with all those those electronics failing? Seriously?? Just look at the thing! The patterns don’t even run the same way.

    This theory reversal is as strange as the rock itself.

    Regardless of what that particular object is, there are a lot of straight lines around it that seem odd. How deep is it? Is it possible this was not underwater at some point?

    Sometimes I wonder if Google Earth was created as a method for authorities to use the public as a resource for finding anomalies. Using millions of eyes to scour the world for oddities instead of thousands makes sense to me. It’s not like anything would happen if someone hit the jackpot anyway; people cry wolf too often for anyone to believe anything anymore (lots of any’s there).

    Probably full of Xenomorph eggs

    Could it be a massive Roomba for scrubbing the ocean floor???

    That funny looking tail on the left looks like it may have been formed by ocean currents. Could the long trail simply be an area where two plates have moved apart?

  • Larry Burks

    Well, it’s on a fault line, so…

  • tdc7011

    Yep, and all it takes is one.

  • Clamb

    Indeed. Then “its game over man! Game over!!”

  • BW

    Has anyone else tried to look at the coordinates with Google Maps ? All I can see is a blur when I enter those coordinates. The image only resolves better at a view when I can practically see the coastlines of South America and Africa.

  • Ghostdanser

    It should be in the North Pacific, I had to go to the original link and got this: 49.7934804,-141.1317963

    That said I could only get it to resolve a couple of times, usually it was just a blur, but sometimes it would clear up.

    At 2.81 miles in diameter it’s a little to large for Godzilla’s egg…so my money is on a natural feature of some sort. Interesting to look at though and several other fun features in the area.

    There’s more than one. Look to the left. Same shapes, same size, plus tracks.

  • tham

    Absolutely. They are plainly visible, but the trails appear older, with sediment perhaps moving over them. Surprised all the “analysts” don’t mention them.
