Between 1962 and 1979 the NSF Polar
Research Vessel Eltanin (below image) surveyed Antarctic
waters, studying the ocean and ocean bottom. In 1964, the ship
photographed an unusual object at a depth of 13,500 feet. At the
time, there was no submarine that could have carried a piece of
technology to this depth.
The object appears to be a pole rising
from the ocean floor with twelve spokes radiating from it, each
ending in a sphere. The spokes are at fifteen degree angles to each
other. It is located approximately 1,000 miles south of Cape Horn,
beneath some of the most inhospitable seas in the world.
Marine biologists have speculated that it might be some sort of an
organism, largely because it is otherwise so difficult to explain.
However, there is no known form of marine life that looks remotely
like this object.

a depth of 13,500 ft, 1,000

trailed by the Eltanin on 29 August 1964.
There exists the possibility that it is
an antenna or other scientific instrument that was lost by an early
research vessel, but once again, this would appear to be a very
forced explanation. It seems unlikely that an object could drop
through three miles of ocean, and anchor itself on the bottom.
In addition, the position of the antenna is so exact, and so
strangely significant, that it would seem almost certain that it was
intentionally put there. Who did it, with what technology and why
remains unknown. However, it's clear that there could be an enormous
secret connected with the Eltanin antenna, and one that might
not be entirely unknown to certain members of the scientific
community, as will be seen.
Bruce Cathie, a New Zealander
who, among other things, had a famous series of UFO sightings, has
developed a theory about the antenna based on its position on the
planet. Cathie's theories suggest that the antenna may be part of an
ancient planetary grid that is of fundamental importance to an
understanding of our planet and the great 25,000 year cycle known as
the precession of the equinox.
Could it be possible that the Eltanin Antenna is a piece of
ancient technology, or even technology that comes from another
world? Cathie certainly thinks so. Other researchers are now
suggesting that modern science might be well aware of the purpose of
the object, and might be actively monitoring it or using it in some
Mr. Cathie considers 144, the harmonic reciprocal of the
speed of light, to be an important measure of the earth's grid
because it divides into the planet's 21,600 minutes of arc exactly
150 times. An individual interested in Cathie's ideas began
measuring outward in steps from the antenna, and to his surprise
found that the Prospect Point Antarctic Base is precisely
eight of these measures away. Add another unit of 144 and you find
two more Antarctic bases, Hemus and St. Kilmet.
Remarkably, a whole array of bases and earthquake stations surround
the Eltanin Antenna. What this may mean is unknown, but it is
certainly suggestive that the Eltanin antenna is no strange
marine creature, but rather an object of great importance, that
somebody understands very well.
