Living Crater In Russia Still A Mystery
November 14, 2013
This amazing place was found by one geologist from Irkutsk in summer 1949. It was a huge convex truncated cone with an upper horizontal section.
Inside it had a funnel-shaped recess with a dome-shaped hill right in the middle.
The cone was rather big. Its height was about 10-15 meters from the upper side and 70-80 meters from the bottom side. The average diameter of the cone was about 130-150 meters.
The depth of the inner circular ditch was about 8-10 meters. It was clear the geologist found a unique natural formation which didn’t resemble any others. It was called the Patomsky crater after the river in the watershed of which it was located.
What could scientists suppose? From afar the object resembled a giant slagheap but there were no people so deeply in the Taiga who could make it. And there were never labor NKVD camps in the area.
The crater seems to be “new”. Its rock has is not even overgrown with moss. Scientists believe the crater could be 100-500 years old.But there’s another, more logical version. Tunguska meteorite is considered to fall in the Krasnoyarsk region but its crater has never been found.
Maybe it fell in the Irkutsk region and this Eagle’s nest is that very crater?
The distance from the supposed place of its falling to the Patomsky crater is only 700 km. For bolides flying with speed up to 70km/sec it’s only 10-15 seconds of flight. The age coincides too. The incident of the Tunguska happened in 1908.
According to the research there is something 100-150 meters deep under the crater.
This “something” has abnormally high content of iron and other ferromagnetic materials. Besides there is much water under the crater.
If the crater was formed by a meteorite, that meteorite was not so simple… Probably it could be a superdense quark meteorite. Or some other superdense object.
The crater is still “alive”, its shape is slowly changing – rising and falling.
It was experimentally proved that some cylindrical object lies under the Patomsky crater and the length of this object is about ten meters.
This story becomes even more confusing because of the trees which grow around the crater abnormally fast.
Something like this was happening in Chernobyl, for example. But here the radiation background is low.
Only thing I can think of….
