NASA Satellite Captures Enormous 90 Mile Wide "Blue Spiral" Underwater.

A Nasa satellite has provided jaw-dropping pictures of a huge 'storm' brewing under the sea.

The swirling mass of water - which measures a whopping 93 miles wide - has been spotted off the coast of South Africa by the Terra satellite on December 26.

But there's no need to alert international shipping, or worry about the poor fish that might find themselves in an endless washing cycle - the body of water poses no threat.

Indeed, it is more likely to create life by sucking nutrients from the bed and bringing them to the surface.

The sea storms - which are better known as eddies - form bizarre whirl shaped shapes deep beneath the ocean's surface.

This counter-clockwise eddy is thought to have peeled off from the Agulhas Current, which flows along the southeastern coast of Africa and around the tip of South Africa.

Closer look: A detail from the Terra photo shows the eddy is turning counter-clockwise - with the water surrounding it becoming a deeper blue the further it is from the centre

Agulhas eddies - also called 'current rings' - tend to be among the largest in the world, transporting warm, salty water from the Indian Ocean to the South Atlantic.

Agulhas eddies can remove juvenile fish from the continental shelf, reducing catch sizes if one passes through a fishing region.

The bizarre phenomenon was spotted when the Terra satellite was conducting a routine natural-colour image of the Earth.

Hard to fathom Nature's ways

 The only reason were starting too see things unknown before,is because of the teck.we have never had it.  I expect all sort of wonderous things have always been happening.  Faith  marion

Well if its happened before all over then is it simply happening again. It does not mean anything other than that. Can this phenomenon wash over beaches?

I wonder what the fish feel about this? "Hurricane Neptina?"

Great post Christopher - thanks much - I've not seen or heard of one before even though I've grown up/lived on the coast -  so new news for me.  Happy to have the knowledge. Blessings

Although I didn't have a NASA satellite image. In my sailing days I have seen a few blue holes. Mostly in the Bahamas, but nothing of this magnitude. WOW

@kevin oneill   this isn't church sweetie.  Please don't bring in religious DOGMA here!  The kingdom of God is in you, in all of us. We are all souls having a human experience.  This is a sign of earth's ascension, not the end of the world.
