Enormous 5000 year old ancient underground city discovered in Turkey

An underground city newly discovered in Turkey’s Central Anatolian province of Nevşehir, which is located under the Nevşehir fortress and the surrounding area, may be the biggest archeological finding of 2014.

The city was discovered by means of Turkey’s Housing Development Administration’s (TOKİ) urban transformation project. Some 1,500 buildings were destructed located in and around the Nevşehir fortress, and the underground city was discovered when the earthmoving to construct new buildings had started.

“It is not a known underground city. Tunnel passages of seven kilometers are being discussed. We stopped the construction we were planning to do on these areas when an underground city was discovered,” said Turan to Aljazeera.com

The city is thought to date back 5,000 years and is located around the Nevşehir fortress. Escape galleries and hidden churches were discovered inside the underground city.

The newly discovered underground city will be the biggest among the other underground cities in Nevşehir that have been discovered so far and may be the world’s largest underground city.

Cosmic, Earth and Underworld symbolism at ancient rock chambers in Hittite Yazilikaya, Turkey

For almost two hundred years, archaeologists have been looking for a plausible explanation for the ancient rock sanctuary of Yazılıkaya in Central Turkey.  Over 3,200 years ago, stonemasons artfully cut more than 90 reliefs of deities, animals, and chimaeras into the limestone bedrock.   An international team of researchers now presents an interpretation that for the first time suggests a coherent context for all of the figures.  Accordingly, the stone-carved reliefs in two rock chambers symbolize the cosmos: the underworld, the earth, and the sky, as well as the recurring cycles of the seasons, the phases of the moon, and day and night.  

Possible Flying Saucer with Dome half buried in Antarctic Snow

A possible crashed UFO half buried in the snow found 6 km from an unknown station in the middle of nowhere in Antarctica.  The upper part of the disc measures 30 meters whose dome appears to have broken off during the crash.  It is said that NAZI UFO craft have been stationed in Antarctica before, during and after World War II and since the dome of the disc seems to have been built in the last century, we may wonder whether it is a NAZI UFO eg a Glocke as well as could it be that this station has served as air traffic control for NAZI UFOs in the past?  Google Earth coordinates:  Station: 76°14'23.26"S 112° 3'11.90"W  Flying Saucer: 76°17'13.24"S 112° 9'46.32"W  

Something Huge is melting out of the Antarctic Ice Sheet

Something Huge located between Prince Olav Coast and Prince Haraid Coast is melting out of the Antarctic Ice Sheet.  An enormous structure hidden under the ice sheet of Antarctica has become visible possible due to climate changes.  The structure which is not something natural or a crack in the ice sheet is 300 meters long, width measures between 30 – 50 meters, including huge walls and a tower of 10 meters high.  Could it be an ancient settlement, base or a shipwreck built a long time ago when Antarctica was not yet a frozen contingent or is it something extraterrestrial?

Doorway to underground base on Mars

The image of Wrinkle ridge in Elysium Planitia on Mars was taken by the HiRISE camera on board NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft on April 2, 2008. The image shows what looks like two hatches fixed to the surface of Mars.  The sun reflects off the first rectangular hatch, which may be metallic, while the opposite side shows a dark rectangular shadow where the sun's light is blocked by the second hatch.  The hatches of about 7 x 12 meters are slightly open. This is a doorway that gives access to an underground basement?  Suppose it's not about something natural but artificially, we may wonder, other than who built it, what was it used for?  Google Mars coordinates: 8°50'17.09"N 150°36'32.13"E
