Lost Ancient Continent Gondwana Found Under The Indian Ocean

Scientists have confirmed the existence of a “lost continent” under the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius that was left-over by the break-up of the supercontinent, Gondwana, which started about 200 million years ago.


The piece of crust, which was subsequently covered by young lava during volcanic eruptions on the island, seems to be a tiny piece of ancient continent, which broke off from the island of Madagascar, when Africa, India, Australia and Antarctica split up and formed the Indian Ocean.

According to researchers from Wits University's School of Geosciences, the the German Research Centre for Geosciences and the University of Oslo, new results show that this break-up did not involve a simple splitting of the ancient super-continent of Gondwana, but rather, a complex splintering took place with fragments of continental crust of variable sizes left adrift within the evolving Indian Ocean basin.

Gondwanaland is a super-continent that existed more than 200 million years ago and contained rocks as old as 3.6 billion years old, before it split up into what are now the continents of Africa, South America, Antarctica, India and Australia. The split-up occurred because of the geological process of plate tectonics.

Something Huge Appears Next To the Sun - Helioviewer Error?

On January 1, 2021 the SDO observatory captured a huge anomaly that suddenly appeared next to the Sun, but something strange happened.  The Helioviewer shows the anomaly like it is coming out of the sun but when downloading the video it shows that the anomaly is much further away in space when it flies past the sun within a split second.  NASA and other scientific organizations claim that anomalies and UFOs near the sun are merely a collection of streaks left by cosmic rays, charged particles from space, which whizzed through the camera's sensor, or CCD, as the images were taken.  However, looking at this gigantic object it seems as if it has a fixed design. So what is it, a streak left by cosmic rays, charged particles from space or a giant UFO?  And what about the different images of the Helioviewer showing this object (same date and time stamp) close to the sun as well as further away in space. There is an explanation for it?  Source: https://www.helioviewer.org/  SDO -AIA - 304

Huge Flash before UFO arrives through Portal

Something really strange happened on January 16, 2021 when the Secchi Stereo Ahead EUVI 171 probe captured an enormous flash that then revealed a giant object in the vicinity of the sun.  Blue beams, possible electrically charged, are visible on both sides of the object, apparently emanating from the object.  The object, which looks like a giant UFO, comes from another dimension and arrives through a portal near the sun?  A portal is an extraordinary opening in space or time that connects travelers, in this case a giant UFO, to distant realms.  Source: https://www.helioviewer.org/  Stereo-A, Secchi, EUVI 171 Flash - date: 2021/1/16 Time:05.38.00  Object - Date: 2021/1/16 Time: 05.43.00  Flash and object only visible within a split second.  

Strange FM Radio signal discovered coming from Jupiter's moon Ganymede

Strange FM signal (Wi-fi) discovered coming from one of Jupiter's moons Ganymede which is Jupiter’s largest moon. NASA recently extended the life of two of its planetary discovery missions, including the Juno mission to Jupiter. Now it's come to light Juno has discovered an FM signal emanating from one of the gas giant's moons, Ganymede.  According to NASA, (Never A Straight Answer) the discovery is not an indication of extraterrestrial life, but it is fascinating nonetheless, given it's the first time it's been discovered coming from the celestial satellite.
