Hole In The Ice Fuels Speculation About UFOs

Riga - A hole in a frozen pond in northern Latvia achieved
unexpected notoriety on Wednesday as rumours began circulating
that it was created by an object falling from outer space.

"We've been collecting information on the story all day, and
we'll definitely report it in the morning," Inguna Plume, editor
of local newspaper Ziemellatvija, told reporters.

The "unusually large hole" appeared in the ice of a frozen pond
near the northern Latvian village of Karki in early February,
the Leta news agency wrote. Despite sub-zero temperatures, the
hole reportedly did not freeze over for two days.

Locals initially reported seeing "strange things" in the area.

One girl said that she had seen "a small bright object with a
silver ring around it", while other witnesses reported seeing up
to six symmetrical beams of light emerging from the pond.

When the existence of the mysterious hole became known, the
theory that it could have been created by an object falling from
outer space began to gain credence, Karki spokesperson Sandra
Pilskalne told Leta.

Scientific experts admit that the hole could have been created
by a falling piece of interstellar debris, the news wire added.

The mysterious hole has now frozen over, but water samples have
been taken for testing, Pilskalne said. Representatives of Karki
council were not available for comment when approached by
