This Strange Phenomenon in Michigan Will Leave You Baffled

Venture to the UP just north of Menominee and you’ll come across a most unusual phenomenon. It’s a 360-foot long crack, about six and a half feet deep, and two feet across. It first appeared in 2010 when the ground shook and caused a massive booming sound.

People at first thought it was an earthquake, but that is not the case at all.

Have a look.

What’s perhaps most fascinating is that there have been reports of these mysterious booms elsewhere, as far away as Wisconsin.

While scientists seem to have some understanding of the cause of this unearthly occurrence, we’re sure those of you who have seen this in real life may have some theories of your own.

Tell us, what do you make of this?
