Second Mystery Hole Discovered In Siberia

A second hole has been discovered in Siberia’s Yamal peninsula, matching a crater that mysteriously appeared there several weeks ago, leading to rampant speculation about the cause of the unusual geological event.

The second hole is located about 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) away from the first, and was discovered by reindeer herders, according to Salon.

Local lawmaker Mikhail Lapsui related that the second hole is “exactly” like the first one, although it is “much smaller.” like the first crater,

it appears to have been formed very recently, and “inside the crater itself, snow can be seen,” according to Lapusi.

The first hole, which is estimated to be about 50 meters wide and 70 meters deep, was discovered two weeks ago.

Many speculated on the origin of the mysterious hole before scientists were able to reach it last week.

Upon examination, they determined that the hole showed an “ejection” of material, positing that it was formed by an underground explosion caused by the combination of water, salt, and gas.
