The Eye: A strange and unnaturally round island that moves

A strange and almost perfectly spherical island moves on it s own in the midst of South America. The landmass in the centre, known as ‘El Ojo’ or ‘The Eye’, floats on a pond of clear and chilly water, which is extremely strange and out of place in comparison to its surroundings. In compared to the marsh around it, the bottom appears to be solid.

No one has attempted to explain or understand the many mysteries surrounding ‘The Eye’ until now.

When it comes to the story behind this mysterious island, many people have come forward claiming that “a circle inside another circle represents God on Earth,” and as paranormal investigators point out, the area deserves a lot more attention.

Google Earth has been the place to go to if you are looking to explore the surface of the planet like never before. For years this tool has been used by researchers, scientists and ordinary people around the globe to make fascinating geographic discoveries.

This time Google Earth reveals a mysterious island located in the Tarana Delta between the cities of Campana and Zárate, Buenos Aires, Argentina. There, in a little-explored and swampy area, is a mysterious spherical island that is nearly 100 meters in diameter and moves — seemingly on its own from side to side — ‘floating’ in the water channel that surrounds it.

Its discoverer is an Argentine filmmaker who investigates paranormal phenomena, UFO sightings, and alien encounter cases.

After the filmmaker, Sergio Neuspiller, researched ‘the Eye’ in situ, checking the anomaly in order to rule out an optical illusion, he started a Kickstarter campaign. The Kickstarter campaign is needed in order to raise the necessary funds to gather a multidisciplinary team of scientists and researchers to ‘The Eye’ in order to get to the bottom of the mysterious island in South America.

How is such an island even possible? Is it the result of an unknown natural phenomenon that we have rarely seen on Earth? How has it lasted so long without deforming? And what caused its initial formation?

Is it possible that the nearly perfect spherical island is connected to UFO activity in the area? Or is there something underneath it that causes the mysterious island to move erratically?

The truth is that if we look back at the historical records of Google Earth we will find that ‘The Eye’ has been visible on satellite images for over a decade and has apparently always moved in a mysterious way as if it were seeking attention from anyone looking from above.
