PHENOMENAL UNDERWATER DISCOVERIES

PHENOMENAL
UNDERWATER DISCOVERIES-
Good afternoon my dears I thought you might find this to be a interesting article of different
items found deep in out oceans. I found this one on many of  my favorite web search. I hope you like this article and the photos that I include too. 
Lost City
of Heracleion
In the Lost City of Heracleion it was five years, for famed archaeologist Frank Goddio who search the oceans depths for 5years+ for the lost Egyptian City. It was such an epic journey that he almost gave-up until he practically stumbled upon the ruins by accident. That must of been a grand day for Frank being an archaeologist of the sea.

The Ghost
Fleet
Imagine diving and coming across this eerie underwater graveyard, of an entire 'Ghost Fleet' if you will, of grave site deep underwater with over 40 vehicles that were bombed down into the depth of the ocean near Chuuk Lagoon. It is basically a grave site of World War 2 ear Grave.




Sculpture Park
This one is one of my favorites, why? well its is just so beautiful. Also how was it done? And was these Sculptures at one time hundreds or even thousands of years ago on land? which gives the question that we probably had a Ice age millions of years ago and this is the result. Now it is the opposite and one day these beautiful Sculptures will be to deep in the sea for us to get to. When all the Ice does indeed melt. These Sculptures are in the warmer climates of the Caribbean   Waters of Cancun, Mexico, which    

                                                                                                  offers this unique attraction for divers
                                                                                                   where they can see over 500 life-like
                                                                                                   Sculptures.
MS Zenobia-
In this underwater find, we go to the bottom of Larnaca Bay in Cyprus in 1980s where a 10,000 ton ferry sank to the bottom of the ocean and it still rests there to day.







The Underwater River-
Here we are going to an Underwater River that only a Skilled diver can access too! If you try to do this without the skills you probably will never come out of the underwater river alive or be seen again the stories have been told about this mysteries place. It is also known as 'Cenote Angelita Cave'. You may ask why? Well, Its because the trees and plants which appear to grow out of the river, is actually just an optical illusion which is caused by a cloud of hydrogen sulfide interacting with the saltwater. You see there is two different types of water in the underwater river fresh water and salt water and you have to know how to work you diving tanks for you breathing to get out alive
USS Oriskany-
The USS Oriskany was the aircraft carrier which saw many years of warfare through both wars of
Korean and Viet Nam Wars before finally being sunk to the bottom of the sea. It's now a part of the world's largest artificial coral reef.




Train Graveyard
In 1985, an archaeologist had discovered a 'Train Graveyard' off the coast of New Jersey,
with locomotives and train cars dating back to the 1850s. Not surprised that New Jersey would
waste them.




Yonaguni Monument-
This find was discovered off the coast of Japan. When I first saw it on the History Channel, I was truly amazed by the size of the Monument and the fact that it only a few miles off the coast of japan. As you can see that the massive stone structure is to believed to be over 5,000 years old. Also the enormous stone structure looks like it was man made so there are lots of questions about the Yonaguni Monument. But it is a very dangers place to check-out because of the strong tides.
SS President Coolidge
The large ship saw its seafaring days end after succumbing
to a series of underwater mines.










The Titanic-
Well, you know about this one my dears, but this is a different view of the ship that sunk about 2,000+feet in Alantic ocean.





Ancient Chinese City-
In the Ancient Chinese City of Qiandao Lake is the home of this 'Ancient City',
which really isn't ancient at all since the city was purposely submerged by a construction company.







SS Thistlegorm-
The British merchant ship was sunk in WW2 in the Red Sea and contains everything from vehicles
and motorcycles, to ammunition and other type of weaponry.

Manganese Balls

Taking a break from sunken treasures, these naturally occurring manganese balls have kept scientists stumped for decades. No one quite knows how or why they even formed, but they can just millimeters wide to watermelon-sized.







Irish Silver-
Researches in Ireland discovered this huge 61 ton haul of World War ll-era silver off the coast
of Ireland nestled in a British cargo ship.SCORE!







The Antikythera Mechanism-
They discovered the Antikythera Mechanism in the early 1900's is an ancient analog 'Computer'
that was used to predict the movement of the moon and stars that dates back to somewhere between
100 and 204 BCE.









Apollo ll Rockets-
Once they thought lost to the ocean, the rockets were discovered using sonar technology in the
Atlantic ocean, led by a team of researchers funded by Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos. They found
the Amazing Apollo 11 Rockets




Sweepstakes-
This Canadian schooner sunk in 1867, then the entire Big Tub Harbour sunk
in 1885. It's only 10 feet underwater, so even the divers can go searching in its 100+
old corridors.








Blackbeards
Cannons-
Well, Blackbeards Cannons, kinda cool if you think about it sadly it isn't his Cannons, and it isn't his ship. Blackbeard ship was the Queen Anne's Revenge and that is the last ship he had before he was capture. He sunk it off the coast of North Carolina, with the millions of pounds of treasures artifacts and this cannon weighing over 3,000 lbs.


Ancient-Mediterranean
For thousands of years, a legend persisted of an ancient merchant vessel that  sunk with jewels and
pottery in the Mediterranean. Finally, in 2014, divers off the coast of Malta found the ancient Phoenician shipwreak with many of the old pots and golden treasures still intact.







Stonehenge-Lake Michigan
Ok, it's not the sea, but we had to include Lake Michigan's 'Stonehenge,' this prehistoric rock'
formation that contains engravings of a mastodon
