Giant holes are bursting open in Siberia, and you can hear the explosions from 60 miles away

3 posts in this topic

Giant holes are popping up all over the frigid tundra of northern Russia, and no one is quite certain where they come from.

However, the Siberian Times reports that witnesses are now describing explosive events that may be connected to the appearance of these mysterious craters.

Reindeer herders spotted one of the first huge holes in 2013, in the region's Taimyr Peninsula. It was about 13 feet wide, nearly 330 feet deep, and - as they stumbled across their find - the men "were almost swallowed up by the crater," the Siberian Times wrote.

The herders never saw what made the hole, which has since grown to a whopping 230 feet wide and filled with water.

But villagers who live dozens of miles away are finally coming forward to say they heard and saw something strange shortly before the crater was found, according to the Russian news outlet:

[R]espected scientist Dr Vladimir Epifanov, the sole leading expert to so far visit the site, said: 'There is verbal information that residents of nearby villages - at a distance of 70-100 km [43-62 mi] - heard a sound like an explosion, and one of them watched a clear glow in the sky.'

I think they call them pingles. Theory is that there would be a massive ball of ice under the surface and as the temperature slowly rises the gases in the ice start to expand as it melts until one day KABOOM! The ice ball explodes under the ground and in turn leaving a huge hole... Well that's their theory anyway. Don't know what the aliens in hollow earth think about that though? LoL
