COULD this bizarre object, described as a giant ancient pyramid and found at the bottom of the sea, be a clue to the site of the mythological City of Atlantis?
The structure, estimated as being between 3.5 and 11 miles across, was spotted on Google Earth in the Pacific Ocean just west of Mexico.
A video about the discovery uploaded to YouTube has drawn vast speculation about what it could be, including an ancient sunken city, a bizarre UFO, or even an alien base.
The “discovery” was made by Argentinian Marcelo Igazusta.
Conspiracy theorists claim it could be an undersea ancient pyramid or even connected to aliens.
The video commentary described it has being “an intense light in the Pacific Ocean” of 3.5 miles in length, with a shape similar to a plane.
Scott C Waring, an alien conspiracy theorist, said: “It is a perfect pyramid that measures over 8.5 miles across one side of its base. Thats a conservative estimate, it could be up to 11 miles across.”
He suggested it could symbolise an ancient civilisation, or even something alien.
A 8.5 mile pyramid…biggest the world has ever known, and it’s right off of Mexico, near the ancient Mayan and Aztec pyramids.
“A 8.5 mile pyramid…biggest the world has ever known, and it’s right off of Mexico, near the ancient Mayan and Aztec pyramids.”
His reasoning that aliens might be involved?
He said: “Humans could never have built such a construction. Only aliens could accomplish making such a massive structure.”
