A strange and almost perfect circular island sits near the northeastern edge of Argentina, which is said to float on its own axis in the middle of a swampy marsh. Called ‘The Eye’, this mysterious land is surrounded by a tiny channel of clear water and some believe it is camouflage for a massive alien base that lays quietly beneath the surface. Now, a team of researchers and filmmakers have opened a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their investigation of these bizarre claims, with the hopes of uncovering the mystery of this remote island once and for all.
‘We have discovered a mysterious island near the Parana river, which, intriguingly, moves and rotates on its own axis,’ Richard Petroni, a hydraulic and civil engineer from New York who is involved in the project, said in a press release. ‘Besides, it features a neat circular structure bordered by another perfectly circular streak of water.’
‘It’s something real and accounts for several supernatural stories bearing connections to UFOs and other paranormal aspects.’ Petroni has teamed up with Argentine film director & producer Sergio Neuspillerm, who made the discovery, as well as tech expert and founder of a telecommunications company, Pablo Martinez,for this journey.
‘The Eye’ can be found on Google Maps using the coordinates: 34°15’07.8’S 58°49’47.4″W.
It is located in the Parana Delta between the cities of Campana and Zarate in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The island was first spotted by the film crew six months ago when they were looking for a place to shoot a film covering other paranormal occurrences, such as ghost and alien sightings, in the area.
After the team plugged in the specific coordinates and saw the mysterious spherical landmass on the computer screen, they knew they had to see it with their own eyes. ‘When locating this reference in the map we discovered something unexpected that left the film project in the background, we call it ‘The Eye’,’ said Neuspillerm in a video.
‘The Eye is a circle of land surrounded by a thin channel of water with a diameter of 130 yards.’ ‘Both circles [the water and land] are so perfect that it is hard to believe that this is a natural formation’.
The team trekked through the marshy surroundings, trying to find an entry point, but were unable to make their way to the island. Finally, in their second attempt and after eight hours of hiking, they stumbled upon ‘The Eye’.
The locals have their own take of the mysterious island that floats on its own axis – they believe ‘a circle inside another circle represents God on Earth’.
Now the team is seeking $50,000 via Kickstarter, in which they have collected $4,557 from 25 backers with 42 more days until the campaign closes.
These funds will be used to support the team’s next expedition, which they plan to record their journey and turn it into a documentary film.
‘We want to return with a complete scientific expedition having scuba gear, geologists, biologists, ufologists, specialized drones and more, and take samples of the water, soil, plants an all other objects we may find,’ said Neuspillerm.
