sorry about this
« on: January 05, 2024, 01:03:25 PM »

First I want to apologize for being the latest crazy person to think he has seen something in google maps but I was looking at Nikumaroro in google maps and saw something odd near the Norwich City wreck, likely it is just a random piece of junk but I would be interested in what others see.  I have attached a larger view which includes the Norwich City and then a zoomed view of the object.

No apologies necessary.  The sea giveth and the sea taketh away.  Always worth checking.

The object you point out is not a new arrival. It has been in that position since at least 2012.  I think it's the thing in the foreground of the photo below taken in 2001.

We've walked past it many times.

I keep hoping the wheel reappears when someone is there to see it, and hopefully recover it.

It's an ironic situation.  Google Earth gives us excellent satellite-view updates every few years, but if something interesting were to show up it would take hundreds of thousands of dollars to check it out.

Ric, if I were a billionaire, I'd get you there to check it out.  I'd also have rented the deep submersibles.  Alas...........
