The unusual image was first published on Reddit. There was a black hole with three sides in the middle of the ocean in the image, which sparked speculation among users.

Many people remembered that Google often blurs the location of military and government facilities on maps.

The coordinates revealed that the black hole actually turned out to be Vostok Island, an uninhabited atoll in the Republic of Curacao, located approximately 2,280 kilometers east of Sydney.

 

Speculation about the black hole’s appearance has led to theories that it is an underground volcano.

Surprisingly, the version turned out to be as close as possible to reality. The enthusiasts who went to the place dived near the island and found out that it really is of volcanic origin, the volcano’s mouth is hidden deep under water.

After the expedition, Google slightly adjusted the maps. The island still looks dark to them, but when zoomed in as close as possible, its outlines and even the trees in the center are visible.
