Mys­tery gi­ant worms were just rock piles

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

THE mys­tery sur­round­ing a huge worm-like struc­ture spot­ted on a satel­lite im­age more than a decade ago has been solved.

First seen by the Quick­bird Two as it trav­elled over the Cana­dian wilder­ness in Septem­ber 2006, the pic­ture con­fused many ex­perts.

The photo showed struc­tures emerg­ing from the for­est, ac­cord­ing to the Science Chan­nel.

Bi­ol­o­gist Rob Nel­son said: “It re­ally looks like some writhing of white worms. There’s no ob­vi­ous be­gin­ning or end. Just how big are they?”

How­ever, an in­spec­tion showed they were mas­sive piles of rock and gravel.
