Giant Ocean Whirlpools (400 kilometers in diameter) Puzzle Scientists

US scientists discovered two giant whirlpools in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Guyana and Suriname. It became a sensational discovery because this part of the ocean has been studied thoroughly, and no one expected anything like that to appear in the area. More importantly, no one can understand where the whirlpools came from and what suprises they may bring to people.

  3. Gyres aren’t uncommon. They even exist in fishtanks where the current traps material in neutral zones and keeps them there. Although, I have noticed alot of activity (ufos?) in recent video from Japan. Whether it be the volcano feeds or footage of earthquakes and tsunami. Everyone’s automatic field of view is what is going on in the foreground of the footage, take a look around and you’ll be amazed.
