A strange, unidentified object was found off the coast of Greece on Google Maps, and social media users have been debating its identity.
The first person to locate the object, which is submerged off the coast of Michaniona, near Thessaloniki in Northern Greece, was Youtube user “The Hidden Underbelly 2.0.”
He shared the coordinates of the image, which are 40°27’4.62″ 22°51’39.78″ so that viewers could find it themselves on Google Maps.
According to a video created by the user, the round, circular object might measure over 200 feet long (around 61 meters).
Although there has not been any confirmation as to what the object actually is, social media users have produced their own theories, ranging from the base of an old lighthouse to an alien UFO.
Another commenter noted that the mysterious object only appeared off the coast of Greece after 2003. Before then, the space was empty.
The video’s creator, along with a number of commentators, called the mysterious item an “USO,” or “Unidentified Submerged Object,” in contrast to a “UFO,” or “Unidentified Flying Object.”
Mysterious submerged object in Greece
This is not the first sighting of mysterious objects in Greece. In May of last year, Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites caused alarm in northern Greece on Thursday evening as many eye-witnesses recorded what they described as an array of bright UFO’s.
The initially unidentified objects were later revealed to be the Starlink internet satellites that were launched on Tuesday from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
Social media users uploaded several videos of the strange lights crossing the Greek skies. Some panicked, understandably, believing that they were UFO’s.
Starlink is SpaceX’s plan to build an interconnected internet network with thousands of satellites, designed to deliver high-speed internet to just about any area of our planet. The network is an ambitious endeavor, which SpaceX has said will cost about $10 billion or more to build.
